October November Goal Review

It is that spooky time of the year! πŸ‘»πŸŽƒπŸ’€ When we review the last month and propose for the new 😱

October Goal Review

  1. A Trip and a Wedding
    • Won! Despite exhaustion, the overlanding trip taken and wedding afterward were absolute blasts. Seeing old friends (some not since 12-14 years ago) and making new ones has been… I need more of it in my life. A few other lessons were learned too, some I will capitalize on in November. (See photos and follow on https://www.instagram.com/jimmychattin/)
  2. MΓΆrk Borg Module
    • Won! Made the module The Final Day, or The Final Hours of the Final Day. D66 world-destroying cataclysms meant to wipe out all player characters and every monument that ever stood. Blog post on this later πŸ˜‰ No bonus for the artsy splash or BITS conversion (very close to this conversion, though!).
  3. 20 Hours Machine Learning
    • Failed. Didn’t touch the lessons πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  4. 20 Hours Unity
    • Won! I now know more about the engine. Enough that I could talk shop about it, so onto the ol’ resume it goes~ No bonus for making a game over 10 extra hours, though I dedicated about 4 hours to remaking Flappy Bird πŸ˜ƒ
  5. 15 Minutes Daily Engagement
    • Won! Time was put in, but not consistently >_> I hold responsible goal #1, a 9-10 day affair that wiped out the first third of the month from being online. No bonus here for 20 total engagement hours.
  6. Move or Half-Year Review
    • Won! The move is underway! Getting to live with some great and grand folks because of it πŸ™‚ But, that means November will require EOY reviews!
  7. Bonus: Marathon War 2P
    • Nothing here – did not touch the bonus.

November Hiatus

After some realizations in the first half of October, I have decided to take November as a month of hiatus. I’ve done so before, and the close of the year is just… convenient!

Write blogs, read articles, brainstorm projects, visit friends, build something new, and maybe play a game or two. Also getting ahead on the year-end review is a thing I should do too. Here are some prospect for your review (that I may make into goals if I get ready to):

  • EOY Review collection, with a bonus for Media and an Outline.
  • 6 Blog Posts to help fill out the year.
  • 20 Game Hours, especially since I am like to have a VR headset at my disposal 😎
  • 20 Study Hours of game engines, both for tabletop and virtual environments.
  • 8-10 Hours of Outreach again.
  • Private Engagements of personal and social nature.

October was uncomfortably tough. It felt like a constant rush to get all the goals and other things handled (you know, the stuff of life). Led to an 83% success rate which, while acceptable, made me feel guilty for taking any rest.

That is no good, especially for someone who tends toward workaholism 😐

High time for a break, wouldn’t you say? I may give myself task credit if I change my mind after Halloween. For now, I collect myself and my notes from the past year, write a few blogs, attempt to relax a minute.

Cool? Cool. Forget not to take some time for yourself too, shared with friends and other family. Cheers to your November, folks!
