Learning Japanese doesn’t make me happy anymore.
It’s unlikely to benefit my career in the foreseeable future. I can’t think of anything fun to do if I visited Japan. With no Japanese-only games that I care about at the moment, and little time for anime, the list of benefits is getting short–or nonexistent.
On the other hand, making games is more exciting every day. I enjoy that feeling of seeing a new feature or piece of content suddenly work, sometimes better than I had imagined. It’s just more worth my time. The same is true of my home life: it makes me happy. So that’s what I’m going to spend time on. Simple.
