Hello and welcome!

I'm Ryan Smith. I run a variety of online projects, ranging from games to fiction works to sound design to freelancing.

Interests

Activity


I've gone from writing to sound design to game development, and all three aren't working for me; so I'm considering a career change of some kind. The problem is I don't know what fits both my skillset and my interests. I'll list 10 things I like and 10 things I can do well and let you guys offer suggestions.

(Please take this seriously, this is someone's personal and professional life).

10 things I love:

1: Music.
2: Games.
3: Foreign languages.
4: Good food.
5: Philosophy
6: Humor
7: Helping people
8: Playing with numbers and stats
9: Audiobooks
10: A Light-heared outlook on life

10 things I can do well:

1: Write stories.
2: Design sound effects for video games.
3: The "gift of the gab" as my mom puts it.
4: Have an open mind.
5: Approach people of high status, in comparison to mine.
6: Take an honest approach to everything I say and do.
7: Learn things very quickly through observation and perception.
8: Forgive other people.
9: Use creative imagination to solve problems when put to the test.
10: Enormous reserves of inner strength when challenged.

I'm not sure what to do at this point, so if you have any ideas based on this criteria, I'd really appreciate them.

  • Listening to: Dalida - Ahsan Nas
Ladies and gentlemen, the next time someone tries to give you advice that doesn't feel good to you, do not take it seriously unless you know you'll feel better knowing it.

Don't make the mistake I made and listen to "trusted experts" who I honestly don't like, simply because their "proven" facts are enough to destroy your hopes of a meaningful life. Don't listen to these people if all they are trying to do is depress and frighten as many people as they can.

TRUST YOUR GUT AND TRUST YOUR FEELINGS. They will tell you more about something or someone than all the scientific research in the world. Don't let your dreams, your passions, and your aspirations be crushed and poo-poo'd by some pinhead wearing a fancy suit in front of the television or computer screen.

The curse of being a smart person is that you quickly learn the wrong ideas about life and shape your entire way of living around those. Example: "What you don't know can and will hurt you."

That's not going to make me smarter, that's just going to make me scared for my life! Avoid the news channels and stop listening to people with a pessimistic or negative attitude when telling the so-called "facts."

What I didn't know caused nowhere near as much damage as what I mistakenly believed, especially growing up. We live in the world where you are shaped against your will until the age of 7 (give or take). At that age, we begin to develop our ability to reason, and we're never taught to use it!

Don't let anybody dump anything they want into your mind because you have to live with the results. That was my mistake. I am now 22 years old with pennies in my pocket and a soul that's as empty as my bank account. Don't let this be you; and don't let my story dampen yours. I'm beginning to discover what's really important to me, this is not like an incurable disease.

Listen to what your heart is telling you, ignore the pinheads, the cynics, and the critics. They're nothing but shadows of their former selves.

Don't expose yourself to too many facts and figures unless you want to end up a statistical figurine; a mindless pencil pusher who has nothing left to live for because he let people and circumstances talk him out of it.

You are on this world and alive for a *reason*. Find what's really important to you and go after it. It's waiting for you, and only you. Don't let your dreams die off before you do.

Life is truly the greatest gift of all...show some gratitude for it and live.

And I don't mean a let's play or a Nuzlocke. I mean actually make something from scratch. And I have experience with RPG Maker VX Ace. This is a project I'm working on that's my own thing, and the Pokemon game will be made in the same engine:

To be truthfully honest, everyone we sent a message to was found on the PersnicketyRP rules and regulations page. We assumed that the roleplayers that frequented Persnickety would be decent enough to contact.
