First Time

This isn’t a story about any of those kind of firsts, perverts. I know you want to hear that story but this is about how I now have a full time job as a writer. I know, I know. I have been getting paid for writing for 2 years now but I’ve never actually sat in an office all official like. It’s already day three and I still have to hold back some squeals when I look at this keyboard. Guess there is something to this “Follow your dream” advice.

The best bit is that I work with game developers and artists – which means, so far my job has included me spending a few hours testing out the games APART from my passion of writing. I mean, how good is this?

Yesterday, I had my earphones on and was listening to a YouTube instruction video for work and was suddenly jolted with the sounds of “DIE, BASTARD, DIE!”, “I’LL GET YOU FOR THIS MAXIMUS! You &^&^%*^^%&*%”. I was so shocked and looked up for my desk to see that my colleagues had set up a whole floor to play counterstrike and were in the middle of an intense game where I gathered one of them died. Hardcore!

If only the sound of a satisfied purr can be translated to words, I would insert that here.

    You’re now a full time writer? That’s awesome! Sounds like a good job (I hope the pay is okay as well). Do you still want to go back to studying some more?

      Yes! Well, that’s what it’ll look like on my CV anyway. I did it full time before but with so many different organizations. The pay and the benefits are great. I am still thinking of studying though, let’s see how it goes!
