Well, at the start of the summer I quit my job and started my game company with no skills or experience. I calculated the hours I had and was blinded by the "with enough sweat, I could do anything" philosophy, and in turn, finished half of a game.
I have to go back to working a regular job, which is sad, but I learned alot over the summer and just have to move forrward. It was stupid of me to just rush at it head on without thinking, but if I hadn't, I probably would never have done it.
I had to prove to myself that I wouldn't just "play it safe" for the rest of my life. So when I go out and do it again, i'll be more prepared. I'm not giving up, just trying to act smarter about my decisions.
