My First Post

They say that the "Journey of a thousand miles" begins with the first step.. Well here's my first.

Flashback:
This is how I ended up here..
Jul 1st 2008
Completed my Engineering in Computer Science. Got a high paying job
Sep 11th 2008
Training Complete. Bunked 2 weeks to hang out with my girl
Oct 1st 2008
After .NET Training they put me to work on PeopleSoft
Dec 25th 2008
I HATE ERP. Decided to save my 1 year pay and to quit in Aug 2009
Aug 14th 2009
Resigned. Free. Ah! The smell of freedom.
Sep to Nov 2009
Arghhh! The pain of listening to the crap everyone keeps telling me.
Nov 29 2009
Self-Realization. I AM AWESOME-O.

Present Status:
Well.. recession is starting to fade off I think. I've created some rough 2D games. Learnt some Action-scripting and XNA. Just yesterday - I completed a lot of reading about 3D stuff in XNA.

Today, the 29th of November - Is the day (ok, may-be) that is going to change my future. And No, I didn't meet myself from the future. Today is the day I finalized my decision about getting into Game-Dev forever.

Cons
I may end up failing.
I may not get the same pay for another 5 years even if I end up being a web-developer.
I may end up losing everyone I love. [I'll still have myself though]
I may have to start all over again as a fresher

Pros
I may end up following my dream

Ignorance is Bliss. I don't want to shove my dreams up my a** and spend the rest of my life in regret for not trying even once.

So here it goes..
