a: my name is audrey shanice. I am a writer, designer, and all around creative person. I love to dance, drink coffee, and laugh until I cry at Disney. I am obsessed with music, and I think most people should be.
I was lucky enough to get to work with some extremely talented people who I look up to as role models. I was fortunate to be one of their first beta testers and I am still lucky to work with them today. We were all in awe of their talent and ability to create a world that I could enjoy. If you ever want to get a chance to chat with them, you can message me.
I’ve been a part of the Game Developers Association for a few years now. I was able to get my hands on some of the newest, greatest games and the most prestigious conferences of the industry. It was such a pleasure to see all of these talented game developers come together for the first time in some capacity to create something new.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen an idea that I liked and thought it was interesting, but I didn’t know enough to make it happen. I didn’t have the time or the skill to create something of the magnitude of what they did. But every time I see their videos and think, “oh that would be cool if I could make it happen,” I become inspired. That’s part of what makes them so awesome.
Thats also part of what makes Audrey Shanice so awesome. She is a true polymath. She can write code, design, and even program games. Her biggest innovation, however, is the video game engine that she uses to create her games. Of course, she also has a website and a blog, but if you are looking for the real deal, you can check out her site at www.audrey-shanice.com.
The other side of the coin is that many of us have an obsession with death. Because of that, death is our most successful path into immortality. We have a long way to go to get rid of this obsession. If you are going to be able to live, you should be able to change your life. If you are going to be able to put together a better life, you should be able to live better. Death loop is a great example of it.
That said, most of us would be dead in a matter of years. How many people have put off a life-altering experience because of the fear of death? In fact, nearly 10% of the population of the U.S. will die in the next ten years. That 10% will have had a life-altering experience and that experience will change their life forever.
The problem is that there is a massive bias, a prejudice, against people who have experienced life-altering experiences. We are told horror stories about people who have suffered and it causes us to look away, to never think about it again. But people who have experienced life-altering experiences don’t seem to get that. They are told about their experiences and are told that they should never let it get them down, and yet when it does it makes them stronger, more powerful.
As a matter of fact, many in the media, even in the scientific community, have been telling people that if they were to ever suffer traumatic experiences, they would be stronger. But, a large percentage, say 30% to 50% of people, never get that kind of trauma. Some people were told that they should never get a broken-heart, or a broken arm, or that they would never get cancer. And yet, they are stronger than ever.
In a sense, we are all born stronger than we are weaker. But, that isn’t the whole story. As we grow and develop, we learn that we can learn to control what happens to us. We develop both mental and physical tools to use against negative experiences. In other words, we grow older, and we also become more aware of our mortality.
