Catching Up

What's been going on

I haven’t posted much this summer and I wanted to take some time to explain why.  The reason is simple enough, I got caught up in a special interest.  For the last few months I have been working on learning C# coding language and the Unity game engine.  

My special interest

I have wanted to develop a game since I was a kid.  I started learning how to code when I was 15 and I have coded on and off for through the years.  I finally decided that now was a great time to start that project.  It’s never been easier than it is now to be an indie game developer.  

I had in mind an MMORPG I would like to design.  I have already begun work and have some basic functionality down.  Getting to that point has taken a lot of work.  I have been learning how to code in c# while I also learn Unity.  Learning how to code, and code well is an undertaking on its own.  I’ve managed to finish one course and get a certificate and I have been watching videos on coding.   It has consumed a large portion of my life.

The upside

It’s moments like this in my life that I really appreciate being autistic.  I have been able to throw myself into this new project and learn at an accelerated rate.  I went from practically no knowledge of c# or Unity and in a matter of weeks have been able to get many important elements of creating a game in 3D working.  

The ability to focus for long periods of time and to easily comprehend something like coding is an ability I never get tired of.  For most things I want to learn, I can learn them quickly and easily.  This is one of the many reasons I would never want to have my autism cured.  

The downside

The downside to learning as I do, is that I can forget about the other things in my life.  I can also forget about people.  In this case, I’ve forgotten to keep up with this blog.  It pops in to my head from time to time and I think about writing, but I’m in the middle of working out a problem in my code and I put it off.  Today I decided that I would do this before I started anything else.  I figured that my obsessing over a special interest was worth talking about.  

In conclusion

In conclusion, I have been extremely busy and that is why I haven’t kept up with the blog.  I am deep in to my special interest and it’s consuming my time   Know that I haven’t forgotten about the blog entirely, but this is something I need to work through.  I’ll try to pop in from time to time and write something.
