First Entry to the Blog

Icon Leave Comment
This isn't the first time I have tinkered with the idea of having a blog. Although in prior occasions, I have found myself failing to update the blog with stuff on a consistent basis. Never was one to write and entertain the masses on a weekly basis. I am the type to write his opinions on certain subject matters though and have occasionally gone back to my Tumblr to write a long and elaborate essay on my thoughts to some particular topic, possibly related to anime.

In any case, with this blog I will attempt to at least type up my thoughts and opinions in regards to programming as I make my way to learn the Way of the Programmer. I guess in brief, I can give a little background on myself as a person that my introduction to the forums does not have.

I, Akasen, am a college student somewhere in the South-East area of the USA. I became highly fascinated with computers at a young age and played video games on a near constant basis, from the SNES to the N64 and Playstation, to the Playstation 2 and Gamecube, and finally to now with the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. In Junior High, I started to find myself become infatuated with PC gaming. The games that kick-started my love for the hobby was The Sims 2 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

In those days, I was using a computer with an Intel Pentium processor and an AMD 9250 GPU, a pitiful system I might say and I knew it well as I pined constantly for an upgrade. Eventually, I was able to convince my dad to allow me to build a new computer from scratch and I finally had a decent rig for my gaming needs of the time. I still have most of the parts from that machine lying around, the trooper of a CPU known as the Intel E2200, the odd GPU known as the Nvidia 9600 GSO which died from heat, and the accursed Motherboard from Biostar which doesn't need to be named cause I replaced it with a far superior ASUS P5N-D.

My current system contains 8 GB's of Ram, the Nvidia GTX 460, an AMD 1090T six-core processor, and an ASUS motherboard with AM3+ capabilities. I do say I love this machine and all its splendor. Even the case has my love, even if it is too big for the space that my computers were meant to go.

Now, I know you must be asking in the back of your mind then, "Why did you get into programming?" Thinking about it, I can't give any other answer asides from the fact that I wanted to make video games. But I didn't want to be that guy who wants to make games because it sounds like a great idea and it sounds easy. I wanted to do it because it sounds like a terrific idea and that programming seems to call to me. I wanted to learn programming so in the case of any development, I could attempt to ascertain that the software has little bugs in it. That when the user plays a game, he isn't immediately at a forums along with others complaining about some bug happening that causes the game to not work. There is also a prospect that is along the lines of making your own games but in some ways that kinda goes with the idea of wanting to make video games.

But I feel that immediately trying to go big right now is not the answer. I feel that it will take time and patience for me to properly learn what I need to to take my first step into my dream. At this moment, I am working on a text-based RPG in Python as an exercise to help me get more accustomed to programming. I still have much to learn and I am willing to do whatever it takes for me to get a firm understanding of programming.
