I am growing (older)
I'd share a slice with all of you guys.

Happy birthday to me! (for yesterday)

I'm turning 26 years old... I'm not really sure how to feel about it because I can see both some good and bad aspects to it. I often have regrets about not starting something sooner and feel like I've missed the boat on so many things. However, the truth is, I'm still very young, and it's never too late to do something that truly matters to me. It's just so hard to get that idea into my head. I stumbled across a well-known quote by Mark Twain that says,

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

And yes, the thing is, age is just a number and it doesn't define what you can achieve. You're never too old to make a significant impact and do something that can change things for the better.

Moving on now, AI technology has been around for quite a while, but it's only recently that I started becoming more interested in the matter. I'm still basically a noob when it comes to my knowledge on AI, but I know enough to say that it's an impressive tool. Kinda scary, but amazing at the same time. In fact, I had a conversation with one of the most popular chatbots, ChatGPT, and asked it to give me information on AI itself! After chatting for a bit, I could understand a bit more about some different types of AI (web-based, language models, etc.) and their limitations.

On another topic, I've been following a game mod developpment team for a while who have been working on a project that's literally combining two of my favorite games of all time: The Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim. The project, hence called Skyblivion, is going to be a remodeled version of TES4: Oblivion running with the TES5: Skyrim engine. The craziest part about it is that they're doing it for free! I even messaged their official instagram account asking if there was a way I could contribute. They said they dont accept donations due to copyright stuff, but they are actively looking for more people to help with this project. Sadly, I don't have any skills required to help develop a game, but I'm supporting this project with all my heart. It is set to be released sometime in 2025, and I'm very excited, as many other The Elder Scrolls fans also are.

Once again, I can't thank you enough for reading my random thoughts. By the way, some of my friends already know that I've been talking about making video content and starting a YouTube channel for a bit. I admit I've been putting it off more than I should, but guess what? It's finally happening very soon! I'm excited to start this journey and share it with all of you. Stay tuned!
