First day of work

Well today I had my first day at work at Bungie. When I stepped through the doors into the actual studio area, it was really something you have to see for yourself. It's not anything really rediculous, but you feel really lucky/fortunate to be able to do it. But I didn't do a ton of stuff yet, mostly learning the basics of the pipeline and met some cool people. It was a pretty long day after riding the buses and working, about 12 hours or so. But I am looking forward to starting on some real work and will see where that goes.

In Washington

Well I am here in Washington now. I have been here since Monday, but have been on my own now for 2 days. My 2 roomates should be here in a couple weeks.. hopefully.. but as of now it's just me. I still am learning the area and need to setup a bus schedule to get to work and back.

Ive been feeling ill or wierd the last couple days, Tuesday probably the worst with a stomach ache, and now yesterday and today kind of weak or off balance or something. Not sure what's up, but hopefully will be feeling 100% again soon... Otherwise not sure what I will do. I think it's more so just being here alone and having to do a million things that it's overwhelming me a little. But I should be able to get through it fine.

I am meeting someone today to do paperwork for my contract, and then start the job on Monday. But hopefully by then I will have a bus pass and everything figured out and tested so I know how long it will take to get there. Either that or I will have to take a cab.

Hulk post is a bust, Leaving tomorrow

Ok well, I guess I take back my last post. It was explained that the person bought an older version of Hulk for PC thinking it was the new one. So I guess I can't complain too much then :P.

Well tomorrow is the big day.. I am moving to Wasghington. I am a little nervous, but probably more excited to get to work on Bungies next project. It is a really great honor and privelage to be able to do this right out of college, and I am going to work my ass off and do my best as always. I probably won't post now until I get into my new place, and will post pictures.

Hulk for PC... wow....

Someone on gameartisans posted images to the "new" hulk game on PC. I really can't even explain or do I really want to take the time to explain how "awesome" it is. Just have a look for yourself.

Leaving soon, last day of school, MGS4

Hi all,

Well yesterday was my last day of college... but it really didn't seem like it. Everyone was just acting like it was another day, and even after we left, everyone was just kind of like.... see ya?

I'm wondering if it will hit them in a week or two or they will just contiunue on with there lives and hopefully get jobs in the near future. Four of 4, maybe five will be leaving the state right away, so it will make things interesting.

I am leaving to Washington now in a few days. I am quite excited, a little nervous, and maybe a little scared. But my friends will be comming out two weeks after I start, so it will make it alot better. I guess I'm more worried about learning the public transportation and shopping and all that alone more than anything. I'm really pumped for the job though, so I'm ready go get going on that.

Yesterday at school we showed our portfolios and watched some incredibly horrible, but hilarious animations as well. Then after that a fellow classmate hooked up his new PS3 he brought in and we watched MGS4. Honestly... it's pretty meh I think. It has some nice visuals, very sharp, but some of the animation isn't very good, and I forget the name of these strider like monsters, but when you take them down, they have the most annoying cry of anything I've ever heard, and it just loops for about 5 min straight.... aaaaaaaaaah... SERIOUSLY!? But, the gameplay is kind of neat, but very unrealistic on how many guns and items you can carry at once. You can also pause the game in the middle of a fight and buy ammo... lol... I don't know.. I guess I've never been a huge MGS fan, but it's just not for me I guess. Some claim it's the only good game on PS3.. and it's thats the case... eeek. I think Little Big Planet looks like alot more fun and interesting.

Got my apartment, insane computer

Well I was on the phone and running around like crazy today, but after about 5 hours I got an apartment secured, and got to talk to David Dunn at Bungie about some things for my job. So it was a good day, and I am alot more confident and excited to get to work there. I just hope the apartment turns out as good as it seems.

In other news, I can't sleep and came across this article on popular Science that is just rediculous....

I hate time....

Well time is really testing my patience and skills at the moment. I have to basically get an apartment picked out tomorrow and try to get as much ready to go as I can as far as payments or paperwork so that I can move in next Tuesday. My dad and I am frustrated, and I really hope I can get this all figured out, and get into a good place.

I am starting to get a little worried and I guess scared about moving away, but it is exciting. Although I know my family and some other people will be sad, and hopefully won't cause me to get too sad. I will be living alone for 2 weeks or so until my roomates drive up to the place and move in. But i will have been working 1-2 weeks before they show up, so by then I should be used to everything and hopefully will be doing fine.

I also still need to pack alot of things, like more cloths, and electronics and some hygene products, but I can't do some of that until this weekend. I am almost done with school now, only 1 more day, which is crazy. But I'm really not even paying attention to that now, because I need to concentrate on so many other things at the moment.

Fathers Day, sweet mods

Well today my brother and I went to where I work and got some nice steak and crab for my dad for fathers day. We had a nice meal with my dad, step mom, brother, sister and I. I then spent a good amount of time walking around Target trying to find some new cloths and other things for when I move. I have quite a bit of work to do yet for my internship, but I should be able to get it almost all done tonight.

On a side note, I found a link to some really awesome game console mods as well as other related things,

New Job, moving away!

Well.. after alot of waiting and wondering what I was going to do with my life, I got the job at Bungie I have recently applied for. Technically I will be working for a company called Aquent, but I will be doing work for Bungie. I will be moving from Minnesota to Washington in a couple weeks, so I am very excited and somewhat nervous and alot of other things. I need to somehow figure out where I am going to live amoung other things, and still finish up with college since I graduate next week then leave the week after.

Busy, busy, busy...

Well... this week I have had alot going on. But more so this weekend. I am going to be having a little celebration tomorrow night with some old friends. My old boss is moving to Oregon for a job and I might be moving very soon as well. So we are going to be going to a local restraunt after I get off work, so that should be fun.

Then this weekend I have alot of work to do for my internship. So I will be spending alot of time 3D modeling, unwrapping and texturing things I cannot talk about. I also have a huge test on Monday for my final in Humanities I have to study for as well as will be making dinner with my brother for fathers day on Saturday. Ontop of all of that, I am going to try to squeeze in meeting some friends on Saturday night or Sunday to see the new Hulk movie, which looks badass, so hopefully that works out. I also want to see The Happening, but probably won't have time for that one. Hopefully I don't go insane after this weekend :P.

First Blog


Well this is my first blog that I've ever done. I felt I should make this to keep track of things I come across in my life. It would also be nice I guess if I could inspire or educate people along the way. So I guess with that being said, welcome to the start of the blog and comment or do whatever that is you do.....
