Research 4

You know you’re an MSEAE student when…

The term “research” comes up a lot:

    • “I took my brother to the Utah Indie Game’s meeting on Saturday because I needed to do some research. It was fun.”
    • “I also went to the arcade for research.”
    • “I stayed up replaying HL2 for research.”

And none of your friends or family believe it’s research.

You’re not sure you believe it either.

Research??

You know you’re an MSEAE student when…

As previously mentioned:

You’re not sure if your fellow students are just playing games or if they’re doing “research.”

But it gets really confusing when you’re not sure when you yourself are doing research or playing games…

Homework

You know you’re an MSEAE student when…

If people don’t know you, they’d never believe you were talking about your homework:

“How is your game coming?”

“Check out this awesome bug feature!”

“Should we call them ‘Mages’ or ‘Wizards’?”

“It’s like asteroids, but with boats!”

“Let’s go to the arcade Thursday after class.”

“Do you know if they need more play testers?”

“Our professor is meeting us in the lab Friday night to play some games.”

Life is rough. 🙂
