Two year report

It's officially been two years since I left the slow-paced life of Savannah to become a Flash game programmer in Los Angeles. I've had a lot of interesting experiences, both of the fun and sad variety.

I got to meet a lot of friends. I got to say goodbye to a lot of them as well. I've lived with five different roommates and legally resided in three different apartments. I'm having to deal with hearing about (as opposed to watching) my little niece grow up on the other side of the country. On Facebook, I'm reading about college mates who were freshmen when I was a senior graduating. I've experienced roughly 5 California earthquakes (all minor). I'm no longer afraid of flying in planes. I managed to get (and keep) a girlfriend. I've experienced traffic on the infamous 101 and the horrendous 405. I've re-invigorated my interest in writing, drawing and maintaining a webcomic (which is now approaching 100 official page updates!).

I've learned a lot about myself as well. Not as much as I'd hoped, but I have learned quite a bit.

Who knows? Maybe some day I'll put what I've learned to good use :P

In the mean time, though, I'm gonna keep on truckin', keep the girlfriend pleased, keep hearing about my niece's (mis)adventures, probably have to move a few more times, pray that "The Big One" won't happen anytime soon and, oh yes, crank out 100 more pages of Lumia's Kingdom (presumably faster than the first 100 will have taken).

*Insert victory music here*
