Took a pretty long hiatus overall… but as a quick update:
It has been quite busy at work — it was one of the first times where I had more than one coop under me (had 3) to coordinate and get work done with.
I’ve also officially become the lead engineer for the application that I’m working on at TD, and I got approved for a raise (as well as inflation raise lol) so I got that going for me.
However, the gains back at home are not optimal – at least when it comes to dev/career aspects. At the same time, volleyball, basketball and MapleStory (lol) have seen some decent gains overall, but I’ve also derailed a bit since I got back and knee pains at some point (still do as of Aug 2, 2022).
Moving forward, I think the main course of action now is to become a better lead overall at work, and perhaps explore technologies at home… although that might be easier said than done. The motivation is just not there, but I do feel like the experience that I’ve gained while working at TD really unlocked a lot of perspectives at home.
That being said, I’ve been struggling with finding a balance between gaming, exercise, sports, social, girlfriend, and work during my home time … I might have to revisit some of my older posts and see what my trains of thought were. Maybe I’m still doing too much… but at the same time I don’t think like I can drop any (except for games? idk tough call). It just might be a misallocation of resources/time… or even overthoughts idk.
I will say that I don’t really enjoy League nearly as much as I used to… the dopamine hits are just not there anymore. It’s likely that I’ll just be an MMORPG slow grinder moving forward
MultiVersus came out recently though, it does seem to have potential as a 2D platform fighter. Currently leaning towards maining Batman and using the dpad instead of the stick. Still fumbling with some controls though
Will need to get back on track though. Still figuring out how I should play out life’s midgame LOL.
