      This shall be a relatively long post so bear with me. I have recently come to a startling realisation that i'm now 28 and my life seems to be stagnating and not progressing as i'd have hoped some years ago. Due to some medical reasons i have spent the past couple of years in and out of hospitals and in varying degrees of pain through this time. I'm still currently awaiting one final surgery to correct a major problem i have.. But i digress.

      I have found myself looking to the community around my chosen hobbies and interests for some guidance or just general advice. I see many people younger than me who are driven and incredibly skilled in many areas and it makes me ponder why i have dwindled just under a decade away on seemingly not a lot.

      My main passions revolve around the gaming world and most things technological. Other major interests are movies, music and TV (becoming less about TV and more about online viewership etc). I have spent most of my life around computers and gaming but have yet to acquire much in the way of skills directly linked to these areas. I have dabbled in web design many years ago but again nothing concrete that i can place on a portfolio or CV. I would love to be a part of the gaming community at any level but opportunities seem to be a bit sparse around me and i'm in no position atm to travel great distances or invest in something as money is in short supply.

      Seeing the sad news about Monty Oum led me back here to see what i have missed over the years of growth at RT.. safe to say I've missed a hell of a lot! It also reaffirmed my belief that the gaming/animation/writing etc etc community is incredible and a joy to be associated with. The staggering amount of money raised in just one day for one of the people who creates such amazing content blew my mind. Not being familiar with him but still reading comments and feeling so sad about what happened to him again reminded me that there is plenty to like and love about this small world we create for ourselves.

      So here i see a major community (a lot bigger than the one i saw way back when i first was around watching RvB and the adventures in blood gulch!) with hundreds of talented people in some of my favourite hobbies. I'm looking for a few pointers or places to find where i can start to teach myself some of the skill-sets to pursue a career/job in my interests.

      Any words will be met with gratitude in advance and as always, stay safe and have fun in everything that you do.

      (Apologies for rambling also in advance :D)
