My life has been generally pleasant it seems. I have had nothing terribly noteworthy going on, simply my usual multi-tasking insanity. I have been slowly working on my book and with luck I will be able to resolve a particular thorny issue in the game design process. It's one of those Gordian knots I am in the midst of untangling the slow way, as the fast way would involve cutting my work to pieces. I hope to finish the first half of the book in very crude form by mid-october and run my next playtest sometime this fall. At least that is the plan.
In other events, work is somehow continuing to go wonderfully. I will be off to the east coast at the end of the month for a national conference with my coordinators for work. This will officially by my first instance of travel for work and it should be fun. I will finally be able to get some decent seafood and perhaps even cheap lobster. :)
I just recently got my backpay for about a year's worth of work, which certainly helps with my minuscule long-term savings. My finances are finally becoming less stupid, though it will still take me a long while before I have any significant amount of savings. Heck, I plan on gambling with some of those savings on my business venture as well so there are moderate chances that I will have even less. Oh well, it's not like I am retiring next week; I think I have time to save up.
