Well, now uni is finished, finished. Correction as of tomorrow when I receive my verbal feedback, which is basically the written feedback but with a a Q&A element. Anyway can't really put this off any longer because I'm so proud, I GOT A FIRST! I'm so happy with myself. BA6 was entirely self-orchestrated so I feel great that I was able to keep true to my ideas without majorly deviating from the point (A problem I usually have). I'm already putting together stuff for BA7 when I get back in October which is one big research project for BA8, since these are self-orchestrated as well I have a ton of faith in myself. I've decided to continue my BA6 in terms of the premise which is a science fiction narrative I've come up with, but I'm taking it further and fleshing it out for the next two projects, although in BA8 I'll probably only focus on a select few facets, I want there to be an entire story behind it that is there for reference in the design document I'll be producing for BA7. I'm even excited for the CS part of BA7 since I can tie it directly into my project, so I might be doing a small thesis on the science in the universe and how I've taken "liberties" with it.
Oh and I've started reading again! I feel really pretentious saying it, but the satisfaction I get from reading even surpasses my passion for games, I get more of a sense of achievement from a book than a game. But since the course has finished I've found myself with a lot of spare time and I've getting through a number of books I've been meaning to read for a while. I've finally read Brave New World which unfortunately comes across as one of the books that because its a classic, you look like a stuck up wannabe aristocrat for liking it, but hey it was great and I'm so channeling some of it into my project. I still have Dune to get through. It sits on my desk waiting, every time I finish a book I look at it...and its size and go for something smaller, I really REALLY wanna read it, but the size is do daunting, but I may get round to it after I've finished Foundation and the Iron Dream which comes on recommendation from it hasn't arrived yet though.
I also just want to give a "Shout out" to a few people who are on DeviantArt (They have profiles on here) who have helped support and keep me sane throughout the last year...which really only comes down to two people, but your impact was significant none the less. So once again For helping plan my projects and come with ideas while giving me direction and always a laugh. And whose emotional support, tolerance, taste in music has kept me going probaly throughout this whole academic year (from about last July), especially during the rougher parts a few months ago. When I had no one else to turn even about the smallest/sillist issue you were always there (usually playing Skyrim ), you're a great and close friend and I can't wait to go see Days of Future Past! I hope in your second year I can give you half the support which you gave me!
