So I had a dream last night. I was walking with this girl down a corridor, like a renaissance palace corridor. In fact it was a museum. With marble floors, high ceilings, paintings lining the walls to the right and on the left, massive windows flooding the room with sunlight.
We reach the end eventually and walk outside. Now we are in some kind of a park. With green fields, trees and gravel paths in every direction. Peaceful. But the city is still within sight. We wonder what this tall building in the distance is. So I grab my phone and...
I woke up with a smile on my face.
I wrote zero changelogs last year. I guess there wasn't really anything to write about.
Work has been keeping me busy, and it has been pretty fulfilling for the most part. Yet I'm still overwhelmed with this sense of stagnation and emptiness.
Missing Clockwork 6 release might have been a blessing in disguise. Now there is no reason to chase arbitrary deadlines. I have a whole year to work on a more ambitious Clockwork release. And I'm slowly getting excited to work on it again.
Recently I've been thinking about how we have all these resources to learn anything in our pocket nowadays. Yet we seem to never learn new stuff. Instead we keep doing the same thing over and over again.
I've been learning piano for about two weeks now. It has been so much fun. I can almost kind-of play a scuffed version of my favorite piano song. I've been obsessed with learning stuff lately. I want to learn a language. And more about philosophy. And the history of art. And I want to travel again. I want to go to a music festival in Barcelona, hike in Switzerland, trek in Iceland, walk the beach I’ve seen on that one youtube video in Korea.
I've decided to try and better myself this year. There's so much stuff to learn. And see. And do.
