I love Dumb & Dumber movie, but what I’m about to write has nothing to do with the movie. But the title express my frustration that I’m feeling right now.

Well,¬†it¬†started with my (great) idea to make a Flash Game few days ago. I wanted to make a Naruto game (I’m quite a big fan of anime & manga). So, I started to collect some pictures, corp them using Photoshop and such. Then I started to make a simple “prototype” game on Flash, and I got stuck.

I know I can could make Flash. I took a class on that a year ago. I learned Flash 8 and ActionScript 2.0; in that class, I successfully made several games. Even for my final project, the teacher thought my plan was too ambitious, but I nailed it. So, I was pretty confident that I could make my Naruto game idea came true…

When I started to write the code, my mind didn’t go totally blank I could scrap my memory and remember some basic functions. But I got a syntax error. So I fetched my “textbook” (it’s actually a Reader writen by my professor) and look for the function lists. I fixed things, but I still got syntax error!

Frustrated, I opened my old projects, and compare to see what I did wrong. Nothing seemed wrong; I converted the symbol into movie clip, I used the correct function and such, but I still couldn’t figure out and get rid off the error.

So, I decided to give it up. I think all my knowlegde about Flash have leaked out off my brain during the past year. When I looked at my projects, I thought how on earth did I make this? I know that if you don’t use what you learn, you’ll forget and lose it eventually; but it doesn’t stop me from feeling that I’m getting dumber each second….

I wonder if anyone out there have felt the same way…
