Finding Motivation

Posted on April 22nd, 2023

Motivation is a funny thing. I'm not great at finding motivation to actually work on my projects. But when it comes to doing professional work on e.g Hazel I have no trouble staying motivated.

My Journey with Physics

Posted on January 17th, 2023

Physics is important. Both in real life and in games. Physics is also interesting, both in real life and in games.

I'll also be posting information about my projects under the "Projects" tab, so keep an eye on that tab!

FYI: Prepare from some severe ramblings. I was tired when I wrote this, in fact I haven't slept for over 24 hours as of me writing this scentence.
