The Choice

If faced with choice between doing something easy and relatively unspectacular or stretching to your limits and possibly falling flat on your face, which would you choose? What if a grade was involved? What do you think I would choose?

As anyone who knows me (or can see where this post is going) could tell you, I choose the latter option. While developing the concept for my 2D game I recently got in a discussion with the professor that basically communicated it would be difficult to implement. He loved the concept but felt that a lot of new code would need to be developed in order to work. Well, I like a challenge and also I've been known to let my creative ambition overwhelm my technical limitations before, so whatever.

Anyway, there's still a lot of concept stuff still to flesh out before this even becomes an issue, but I think reading the C# book just went from optional to required. So here I go...


  1. Well good luck with your harder road.

  2. Thanks! I think it will definitely be worth it if I can pull it off. We'll see how big an "if" that is...
