Battlefield 3 is a great game with some of the best online gaming experiences this year, yet they have some of the most frustrating server issues on the planet. It’s hard for me to imagine that a game like Battlefield 3 (Developed by Dice. Backed by EA) has ridiculous server issues. Like the multiplayer is offline on DAY ONE kind of ridiculous. Or NEVER being put in the same squad as my party. Even worse is when someone from my party is on the other team. The game is blast once I’m actually in a game with everything working! However, that’s like agreeing to having a great tasting cake with only a spoonful of shit as an ingredient.

Not in the Mood

So I’ve been working pretty hard over the last few months. Doing so much in such a small period of time is not something I like to make a habit of. However, over the last few months I have looked for a place live, moved to said place, worked on freelance projects after regular work, and had a wisdom tooth pulled. All while negotiating at work for a fulltime position and searching the market for other leads.

Things are going that make me describe what I do at work. This always seems awkward to me. First of all, you have to describe your job to someone in specifics. Second, you have to tell them that you’re really good and experienced at what you do. Lastly, you have to tell them why you deserve more money for what you’re already doing. Feels a bit arrogant.

One of the reasons I haven’t updated any of my blogs – besides the fact that I’ve been super busy – is because I’m simply not in the mood to be in front of the computer anymore than I already have to be. I spend all day and night working (or playing) in front of a screen and I’m getting sick of it to be quite honest. I feel like I need an out doors kind of vacation. A camping trip, a beach trip or any thing to get me away from technology for a couple of days.

Someone told me that I’d get tired and bored with work once I’ve been doing it for a while. I don’t want this to happen. I need to keep growing and learning as a developer, as I don’t want my passion to become work. This is the main reason why I gotta keep myself learning and working on personal projects. So I don’t loose sight of “the fun part” of my job.

I didn’t mean like sounding like such a Debbie Downer today. Sorry about that. I see the light at the end of the tunnel and I’ll be cheery as soon as I’m on the other side of this debacle.
