Musika - first impressions.

On the road, again

I have something to confess. I'm an addict. Or at least I have been addicted to travelling for the last few years. I used to hop in and off planes like other people take buses. Or at least so it felt. Well, the good news is that I've been clean for 6 months now. Not a single flight since February, since I flew back to Uruguay from Denmark. And it felt great. It really cleared off my mind (and helped me finishing my dissertation and getting back on track at my game studio).
It's now time to fly again. This Wednesday, I'm taking a flight to Madrid first, for a couple of days, and then to Copenhagen, where I'll be defending my dissertation on August 27th at ITU (if you enjoy watching another human being suffering, you'll more than welcome to show up :) I'll let you know how it goes.
Then I'm back to Uruguay and, a couple of weeks later, it's Tokyo time (for DiGRA and the Tokyo Game Show). I was struggling so hard with my dissertation that I didn't even have time to submit a paper for DiGRA this year. It's a shame but I don't regret it. I enjoy taking things slow now and I just hope that these two transoceanic flights won't get me too tired.
As it usually happens, dissertation-writing is quite a stressing activity. And once I thought it was over, here comes the defense and probably at least some revisions. But it'll be nice to see friends again and hopefully get a little sun in Europe and Tokyo (in order to forget about the Uruguayan winter). Now I need to start stuffing my suitcase.
