My life

It’s time to tell you a bit about my last days. I’m finally done with all my exams and my summer vacation have started. Which means that I can do what ever I want. I’ve also got my work plan for this summer and they (Smart Club) want me to work a lot. Everyday with of course two days of every week.  That means a lot of money, but also not that much time of. That sucks, but guess it’s all about growing up. No more two months summer vacation. Other than working, I’m going to practice my skills with Java, and I’m aiming to make three games and one demo (for Solskogen 09). The first game is the Chaogotchi game that I’ve mention before. Need to get it done, and the two others is probably going to use the same engine, but it is two project that I’m working on with two different groups. Going to be fun! Planning to start tomorrow to play around with some 3d cubes and such, and we’ll see how it goes from there.

I’ve also went to my cabin with my mother and brother. Took sometime off, which was nice. Plus we cleaned out of the shed, so now all the crap we don’t need is gone! My brother and I also hit some balls out into the lake where our cabin is. That was fun, we also tried to find them again, which was a rather cold experience. Since we’re talking about golf, I was playing a nine hole with my brother, uncle and cousin yesterday. It went really well, and I’m just a couple of points from reaching the “normal” score. Also called par. A funny thing happened after we where done and we where gonna walk of the ninth hole. As I approached my cousin from behind while he was holding his putter with the head up, he suddenly and quickly turned around. As I was to slow to reacted he ended up hitting me by accident with his putter. It was a really hard hit so I started to bleed, a lot. So my brother helped me down on the ground so I could lay down and the blood could bleed backwards away from my eyes. So then we drove of to the emergency to check if I had gotten an concussion and to sew my two “holes” in the head. Waiting for the doctor to check me out took some time, but when he finally arrived it all went rather quick and he stated that I didn’t have a concussion (which is awesome), but that I had to sew 5 stitches to cover up on of the “holes”. The other one he just used some strips to tighten it. So that’s how my yesterday was. Rather fun and a bit painfully. Mostly because I was being a man and getting sewn without anesthetic. How man isn’t that?!

Today is Monday, and it’s my first vacation day. I’m taking it easy because of the accident yesterday. Was a little trip outside, bought Test Drive Unlimited (played it before) and it’s a lot of fun. My brother is also buying it, so going to be super fun! There is also a lot of track to download from the net! I’ve also played a lot of Minecraft. You should check it out if you haven’t tried it yet! I’m also thinking about buying a Playstation 3, as they are getting rather cheap now. We’ll see how the week goes…

Skate 2 demo is released

Skate 2 demo was released today! One word, AWESOME! Finally some new places to skate. Too bad the career mode where limited to around seven minutes. Luckily there was a sweet spot where you can play spot battle with your friends or yourself. So check it out!

I also have some other news! Got these two “gifts” in the mail yesterday. Won them on QXL.no which is a norwegian auction site.

I’ve also started thinking about making a page about my growing retro console and gaming collection. Since I got a new camera for Christmas I can take crystal clear pictures. How cool is that?! And speaking about Christmas gifts. I was visiting a friend of mine on the west side of Norway (Lærdal) and she had got me a super cool Kite calendar and a Kiwido set. Will make a post later when I had time to try them both out. Now I’m off to make some dinner and wash my clothes. Burger time!

Alone in a big apartment

I helped my ex-girlfriend to move this weekend. We broke up some weeks ago, but we’ve been living together since we’re still good friends and she wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to do. It’s kinda weird to be all alone, but stuff like this happen. “Anywho”, I’m thinking about buying a Acer Aspire One, testing one out now with Ubuntu, works good. So I’ll probably end up getting one. I’ve also completed all the time trials on Mirrors Edge. It’s thought, but I’m getting good. I also tried out the Left 4 Dead demo. The concept is for me the best there is! Just run around killing zombies. Too bad the gameplay sucked so much I quit and deleted the game after ten minutes. Valve should take a look at the gameplay on Call of Duty 4. Guess that’s it, not a long post.
