I forgot to mention that this app venture was kicked off without consulting my loving wife. I should also mention that this was not the first time I had exercised my misinterpreted entrepreneurial right to invest my time and hard earned paycheck where I see fit. This proved to introduce significant risk to the overall success of the project, and for that matter, to my personal wellbeing....we'll get to that in another post.
Anyway, after honing my development and graphic design skills, I quickly embarked on completing my new game. Within a month, I had designed and developed the best game your mobile device would ever see. The birth child would be called JerkPanda, and I was so proud of what I had created!
Unfortunately, iTunes did not feel the same way:
What!! What do you mean the app crashes and exhibits bugs??? You crash and exhibit bugs iTunes App Store!!!
To make things worse; I started receiving unwelcomed feedback regarding my awesome graphics. The people I was so proud to display my creation to had turned against me. They said hurtful things like:
- "This looks stupid" (Shout out to my youngest brother)
- "Who made this... a blind person?" (Big thanks to my other brother)
- "I don't like to look at it" (It's ok, daddy still loves you son.)
Well, what could I do? That's right; I quickly gave up on my dreams and pouted. JerkPanda was dead.
But the story is not over: There's rainbows and unicorns over yonder.....just need to have a couple uncomfortable discussions with my wife before I can go visit and play.
