Hello this is Xander, I'm going to use this blog as a way to condense my thoughts on anything, could be a long talk or a rant but this is a tool to help me. The hope is that as these entires go on the quailty of my writing will go up. Recently came out to myself and friends as a Trans girl. Which inital was surprising as I had been indentifying as non-binary since 2019. But after thinking about it,it was obvious in hindsight, I have felt a lot happier and more sure of myself after this change, more than I ever felt when seeing myself as Non-binary, but at this stage I am still riding off the thrill of it all and I will have a clearer view when this settles a bit and becomes more normal.
I am a univeristy student studying Digital media Development, which covers how to be a programmer for multiple types of media. For example websites for marketing, App development and VR stuff. The course is a meant to be board so I can slot myself into multiple parts of the industry being able to pick up what needs to done, figure it out and get it done. Despite doing really well in my developemt focused modules in the first year I didn't do well enough for my other modules so I am currently redtaking the year. Its a little annoying but it does help me process better what I needed to learn during the first year of this 3 year course. Right now I am just about to start the second half of the first semester, the first group project of the year starts this week and since I passed this part of last year, I have become a sudo project manager for one of the groups, which isn't amazing but it's something to put on my portfilo and is good pratice since project managementis one of the modules I failed last year. The project is to create and promote a demo for videogame that has themes of energy efficancy, my chohort is made up desginers, 3D artists, CAD, Game developers, game desginers and developer (me). Due to complications, I am now the only developer in my year group left, all the other developers have either moved course or quit the course, there is one in the year above and one in the final year.
