Thousander Club Update: August 6th

For this week’s Thousander Club update:

Game Hours: 262.25 (previous year) + 146 (current year) = 409.25 / 1000
Game Ideas: 616 (previous year) + 92 (current year) = 699 / 1000

I’m moving within the next month. Between traveling to different states for weddings and visiting friends, crunch time at the day job, and an annoying need to sleep and eat, finding a new apartment has been incredibly time-consuming. I need to move out of the apartment by August 31st, but I can’t wait that long since I’ll be in Ohio again that weekend. I’ve seen a number of places, and some seem nice, but none have jumped out at me as a new home. My current apartment has become too expensive to live in, and so I am looking for something that can let me save money.

And when have I found time to work on Killer Kittens? Frankly, I haven’t. Occasionally I squeeze in some work, but it is usually during the downtime when I am out of town. Then I get back and it is right into day job crunch again. I haven’t even had much time to write entries for this blog, and there were plenty of interesting things going on in July. I’m also behind in my POTM entries. Heck, I missed last week’s Thousander entry, which is the first time I missed a week since I joined the club.

I suppose I can’t be too harsh on myself. Moving into a new apartment is important and urgent. Other things in my life have to take a backseat. Perhaps when crunch is over (when IS crunch over?) I’ll have some more breathing room, too.

You have now officially passed me! Even starting two months later than I did last year. Settling in to my new day job has taken me considerably longer than I had hoped and I have been almost at a stand-still for three months. I suppose if this was easy everyone would be able to do it.

Scott: Well, this week looks busy. We found an apartment, and I’ll be packing and preparing to move on Saturday. I won’t have time to do anything besides eat, sleep, work at the day job, and move. You may have a window to pass me again. B-)
