GDC 2016: The Great Nerd Migration.

Every year over 26,000 nerds converge upon San Francisco for GDC to attend lectures, try out new technology, meet other game developers, and see who takes home the prize at the Game Developers Choice Awards. It's is essentially game mecca, and this year was my first year attending. In October I was hired by a close friend of mine to community manage and market a game he created called CHKN. Only two weeks from launch, I found myself on a plane to…

Road Trip Series: Charleston, Part Two.

I was lucky enough to grow up in equal parts country, and equal parts city. For my entire life I lived in a rural part of New Jersey, but was close enough to the city that I could drive 5 minutes to a train station and be in Midtown in a little over an hour. I was able to go to school all day in the city, but come home to my quiet country home, listening to nothing but the breeze and the…

Never let inspiration go, even if it’s 3:00am.

It's 5:30 am, and if you know me this is an ungodly hour for me to be awake. I used to get up at this time every day with no complaints to catch a train to the city at 7:00am. But now that I am working from home, I take it upon myself to enjoy some liberties...like sleeping in. But tonight/day was different. I've been up since 3:00am because my mind was racing. Not in a bad way, about stressful days…

Brooklyn Flea: Why I Love Antiques

My whole life I was always more interested in what happened in the past, or what could possibly happen in the far future. I love the early 1900s as well as the Victorian Era. I also love cars from the 30s to the 50s, as well as the lifestyle, values, and "advancements". Space and the future of the human race fascinate me to no end, and nothing disappoints me more than the fact that I will never see things like…

Sephora Whore: Breaking my makeup habit.

Hello everybody. My name is Kate and I am addicted to make up. I am that girl that always has a flawless face of makeup, no matter where she goes. I always get "Who you tryna impress?" and "Why'd you get all dressed up?". If I leave the house without my makeup for touchups (which I rarely ever do), I either pull a dangerous u-ee and speed back to the house, or buy replacements at a drug store. I am…
