Today my situation changed. Due to circumstances outside my control, I will unfortunately have to leave Bifrost Studios around March. Iâ€™m hoping to still get Photon 2 done before I go, as well as release Valkyrie (previously Eir and Fire). So now, more than ever, I feel the need to get to work on my transformation. Especially the academic side of things. I need to start learning more about programming. More about Unity3D in particular. Itâ€™s my strongest skill, but there is so much more I could learn about the engine.
But I said I would address a workout program as well as a course today. Figure out my plan. So first of all, physical conditioning.
I already run three times a week. Iâ€™ve been looking for a strength training routine for the other nights. Convict ConditioningÂ gave me that. So hereâ€™s my week.
Monday Push-ups and Leg Raises
Wednesday Pullups and Squats
Friday Headstand Pushups and Bridges
Sunday Sleep. Maybe.
For progress mapping, Iâ€™ll start a google spreadsheet. This will show the actual exercise Iâ€™m performing on each of the above days. For instance a Push-up is actually the 5th step in the Push-up sequence that ends with one armed push-ups. So for the first month at least Iâ€™ll be doing simple Wall Push-ups.
Now, academically, I need to have an approach that is flexible. Iâ€™ve decided to re-read my C# Class Design Handbook. A fantastic book for any programmer or anyone learning to program, especially if theyâ€™ll be using C# specifically. But what Iâ€™m going to do this time is apply the Drill DownÂ technique I mentioned in the previous post to each chapter. This will be a good test of the technique as well as how to fit it into my daily routine.
So, although it is possible I will not have a job in 2 months time, I am not sitting idly, nor panicking. I will be contacting developers in the Brisbane area, I will utilise social networks and connections Iâ€™ve made over the last 2 years and this website itself will also help. Things will work out. Life is for living, not worrying about. So long as I am constantly working to better myself, Iâ€™m moving forward. I have some contract work lined up for the year, and I believe I could get more if it came to it.
