Dear Sidarth,

Glad to see that you've recovered from the hole in your life. My personal greatest fear is to strike out as an enterprising fellow in a financially unstable field (i.e startups) and then falling into depression, disease, or some other kind of bad rut that I cannot get out of.

I apologize for potentially bringing up bad memories, but could you describe the last few days of your rut before you started to recover? How did it felt like when you managed to find a light at the end of the tunnel, and why did you take it? What was every day like before? And so on.

My hope is that reading about your experience would help alleviate my fears even if just by a smidgen.

Thank you.

Thanks for the quick reply, I'm currently learning Japanese and it's taking forever especially since covid kept cancelling my fluency tests so I thought maybe I could try Sign Language since it's somewhat interesting

How long does it take to become semi fluent in sign language?

How difficult was it for you to make the switch in subject?

I'm a 3rd year undergraduate who's not sure he's in the right place...

Dear Mr. Juul,

First of all, thank you very much for hosting this AMA. Your books and essays were very illustrative in the formation of my undergraduate thesis.

Right now, I'm about to graduate and I have no idea where somebody who's really into video game theories like me should go. What would be your recommendation for getting into your field?
