3 weeks into uni and am loving it (chaos will come later but my future self will deal with that). I was going to pursue an acting career but ended up landing in to "Bachelor of Arts in Games and Interactivity" which I do not hate at all, rather it's the direct opposite.

It ain't all about making games which is what I like about it, you also go through the psych behind it all and deconstruct mechanics of specific games. Heck even going through the history of games (mind you, before the digital age) is not even boring as I'd thought it would be. I could keep on going about this but I do have to remember this isn't "LiveJournal".

In gaming news, I still haven't bothered picking up SourceSDK nor Hammer 3.5 again since those immature days of highschool and SSX on PS3 was disappointing at first (lack of splitscreen which was what made the franchise so fun, blander characters due to less voice acting and the inclusion of dubstep - now remedied by using my own playlist) but still quite fun carving up snow and pulling off unrealistically awesome tricks. Which reminds me I haven't gone snowboarding in years.

Odd uni schedule you have there. If I'll enter the university, I will start in October.

In Australia (and I assume other southern-hemisphere places), the school year is the same as the calendar year. That way there's still a "summer holiday".

The 1st year is always great fun, be sure to enjoy the social experience while the workload's low. ;)

Sounds like a degree at Swinburne.

I do a lot of shared subjects with that degree.
