For anyone unaware, I moved to Japan in 2013. Acute eyes may notice the lack of activity on my website since 2012 (2011 actually be the last blog post). Frankly, what work I did on the main projects I made this website for was minimal, as I was often busy, and the progress made was nothing I was ready to reveal. Thus, there was no content to share on this website. CSRPGE I wish to keep under wraps until complete enough to display a working prototype to the world; afterwards, I hope some other open source programmers will take an interest in helping with the project. Anaku, as well, has mainly been story and world building work done only; this, also, is something I don't want to reveal too early. In 2013, upon leaving America, I immersed myself in studying Japanese and progress on CSRPGE and Anaku all but came to a halt.
An update! Some clarification on the definition of "Personal," as well as some planned future projects.
I don't have many visitors, as the lack of comments on anything and my webtracker both prove. I perfectly well understand why; I don't have that much content to show. Most of the various things I used to share with CuzitProductions I have since decided to remove, leaving very little content until more is produced. As such, I doubt most visitors have much reason to stick around.
I know this blog is called my "Personal Blog," but I try not to get too personal with what I write here; after all, this is a public forum, and soon will be a portfolio of sorts when I finish some of the things I'm working on (at least to the point that I can begin to share more related information, pictures, videos, and so forth), and I don't want personal things tied to that. Who knows, it could get me in trouble in the future.
The worst feeling in the world is finally feeling like you have your motivation back after many months, if not years, of lacking it, only to be so overwhelmed with motivation that, combined with outside activities, you don't have time to do anything.
Case in point: I have really got myself in the mood to start programming again, this time, for serious. My main goal for now is to churn out some sort of game, one that's complicated enough to teach me but simple enough to be completed. The goal says nothing about making a good game, however. I have a great idea for a game I would like to start on after this project, when I feel comfortable enough with my skills to tackle such a project.
I know I don't have many people following this blog, but nevertheless I just wanted to post a quick update. School's kept me pretty busy lately and the free time I have I want to lazily dedicate to things like Minecraft. I haven't had much motivation for maintaining the site. I really need to work on this; I'm so lazy and unmotivated. This impacts many things; I would like to start ranting on Youtube, for example - haven't even began thinking about what to talk about. I have a pretty good idea for a book, and I've barely started on it. All I've been doing is playing Minecraft and going to school. I can't blame Minecraft, though - it just gives me an excuse to be lazy.
Hopefully there will be more worth talking about in the future. School's probably just going to get progressively more and more hectic until Summer, so I wouldn't expect a WHOLE lot out of me for the next two months or so. I'll still try to find the motivation to write so I can hopefully get something worth posting up on the website.
I'm sure the rage will set in later. Right now I'm just severely depressed.
I fucked up my world in Minecraft. I was working on this giant project - a huge, floating palace in the sky, and I destroyed it accidentally. I have easily put 40 hours or so into working on it (and I'm being VERY conservative with that estimate, it could possibly be double or even triple that amount of time, as anyone who's played this game can attest at how 10 hours of playing only feels like 1), and I wasn't anywhere close to being finished. Now a large percentage of my work is permanently destroyed thanks to chunk errors.
I have 3 computers, two of which run Minecraft. On both computers which I play Minecraft on, I dual-boot Windows and Arch Linux. In an attempt to make it easier on myself to move saves between computers, I linked my saves folder to a saves folder in my Dropbox folder, which should sync my Minecraft saves to dropbox and furthermore to all computers and both operating systems. This is good because I primarily played on that one world anyway.
Somehow, something went wrong. I'm not sure what, but when I loaded my game on a different PC, there was chunk errors everywhere, which the level generator filled in with random stuff. That wouldn't bother me so much if it was just in random places in the environment, or even in my old structures I've built (though I would miss them a bit). It's the fact that it took hours and hours of work out of the biggest project I've undertaken yet, which I've spent the last several months playing Minecraft doing, and erasing about three-fifths of that work. I swear I almost feel like crying right now, after losing so much time and work.
I made a backup a day ago. This would mean having to rebuild a couple of rooms and redecorate a couple of areas, sure, but it's maybe an hour or two of work. But I can't find anywhere on my hard drive. It's seemingly just dissapeared.
I no longer have the motivation to play after losing so much now. Sure, a month from now or maybe even just a week I'll probably start a new world and get addicted again, maybe even starting a new megaproject... but for now I'm just too upset to play the game.
It actually snowed in Alabama this week. To non-southerners and/or non-Americans, this may not seem worth writing a blog about. So what? It snows all the time!
Well, not in Alabama. It "snows" every couple of years or so. And by "snows" I really mean "well, the temperature is somewhere around 28 degrees Fahrenheit or so, and there's not enough snow to stick to the ground, so really all that's happening is it's overcast and there's this thick, sludge-like rain." The last time we truly saw snow, not only enough to stick to the ground but several inches of it, was the blizzard of 1993.
The news is freaking out over the weather. People are buying up everything from WalMart and other groceries stores, almost as if the news had announced the end of the world was coming. And then Sunday, the day the snow was supposed to start, occurred.
New website, alright! I am most likely leaving Webs, with whom I have been hosting since they were still called Freewebs, and transferring to Weebly (the old Cuzit Productions is here). I deleted my old personal blog with Blogger, and I believe I will instead be using my main website for my blog. As an (aspiring, because I never get anything completed) indie game developer, if this website ever becomes somewhat popular on the business front, I will consider relocating the blog. For now, it may serve as something interesting to read for any random visitors who come across this website, and my friends. Conveniently, access to the things I do can all be easily located in the various links around the website, as this blog is just one part of the overall thing.
If you enjoy this website, for whatever reason, leave some comments and perhaps suggest it to some friends!
Cuzit is a college student who does many things... that is, of course, when he's not busing doing nothing or wasting time. Extremely wordy, those who dislike reading should probably avoid this blog. I'm extremely opinionated and frequently vulgar, so this blog may also not be suitable for those under 18 (unless you're fairly mature, of course).
