Video Games and Astronomy are My Biggest Passion
I love to do different things all the time. Among the all, I find video games and astronomy very exciting. Since my childhood, I have shown interest in learning new things. I have always played video games until the late night and obviously it affected the other things of my life.
But still, I managed to prove my excellence in these things: astronomy, and video games. My family was aware of my love for the astronomy from the early age of my life. Thanks to them for their support and dedication. They helped me in every step to fulfill my goal. Now I can proudly claim that I have received success and recognition in both these fields.
Science was my favorite subject. I have always tried to do something different by using the technologies and methods of science. During my education, I have always tried to discover new things about the game designing.
How my childhood was
I was a normal child who was interested in learning new things. During this period, I came to know about the astronomy. It captured my interest and I wanted to do every effort to get more education in astronomy. I went through the news and media to collect information about the astronomy. The news and media helped me to gather more information such as what to do and to be a successful astronomer. For a little mind, it was not easy to understand. But I found these things fascinating and inspiring. More interestingly, I tried to utilize the information in video games.
I was very introvert. My focus was always on my dream and that helped me. After schooling, I wanted to study astronomy. There were many educational institutions for astronomy in Europe. I had to choose the best one. As I was very much attached to my mother, I did not want to leave the home for higher studies. Instead, I decided to continue it at home. It was not that easy, I had to spend four to five hours in the transportation on a daily basis. I always tried to utilize these transportation hours enjoying the video games. These days were amazing. I spent most of my time either in video games or in the astronomy. Both these subjects were my passion.
How was my journey with video games and astronomy?
It was fun, interesting, and inspiring. But it was not that easy. It is not easy to pursue two different interests and to get success in both these fields. The video games were my passion and I enjoy it most. Astronomy was my dream. I loved it. You need many things to prove your potential. You will need logistics to support your dream and the financial base to pursue your education. Besides, you need to maintain a proper balance between these things. That demands time, hard effort, and dedication. The family is a different thing. Your family will need your attention and care all the time. Hence, it is important to make a proper balance in all these things.
In the initial days, I spent most of the time to make a balance. But now everything is controlled. Knowing what I want to do and where is my family. Now I do not need to do any extra effort to meet commitments. It comes naturally.
This is an art I’m thinkin’. When you will be able to understand your responsibilities; it will be much easier for you to fulfill them.
Where am I now?
I am in the best phase of my life; Having everything that I had dreamt of. My very own family. I’m a good video games designer and I have received a Ph.D. degree in astronomy here in Europe. However, I do not expect more from my life. Therefore, I spend my time by watching the video games; as well as utilize this expertise by designing video games. Also, I have good contracts and I helped the aspirants in this field.
Always loving work and the best thing is that now I get many opportunities to work with creative, smart, knowledgeable, talented, and intelligent people who are passionate about the games. Designing games and taking the opinion of my co-workers make it more interesting and fun. I did not get any job in astronomy with a Ph.D. degree. Some found me over qualified for the job, others demanded more certificates and degrees. Hence, I decided to work with some selective projects.
