Well its really hard. I am working as a bartender and at my free times making games but basically i want to be a game designer. So it looks normal but in my country its crazy and really hard and that makes me sick. I live in Turkey, Istanbul and there is not even one scroll for game development. If you tell people you are a game developer they are telling you "you are old, why are you still playing games like a child etc. etc." Hopefully my family support me and always said " do what you like more " its really important and i am thankful for this.
Other problem is i must buy everything with "$" and its really expensive in Turkey. Like 1 dolar = 3 turkish lira and normal people earn 1200 turkish lira for a month its like 400 dolar for a month. For this amount of money you must work 6 or 5 day for a week for 8 to 16 hours. It looks like most hardest part but not !
Most hardest part is being Turk ! I am proud of being Turk but islam omg its the problem. Everybody thinks we are really in to islam and cutting you way with you after what happened in the world (Paris so sad, so bad. RIP) . I am almost at my limit but my wife push me and always said me "do it, you can do it, don't give up you don't like to give up!" I don't know what to do anymore. Its like end of my limit but i don't want to give up to.
I just want to write this here if i talk someone from my country they say : "Thats normal we are living in Turkey don't hope too much just live" and i hate that. Nobody has dream !
