    • I started a playthrough of Baldur's Gate 2 on Twitch!

      I'm playing Baldur's Gate 2 - a Dungeons and Dragons PC game (2nd edition rules, so super old like me) - on Twitch. I'm currently playing through as a Neutral Evil cleric. 


      You can find my stream along with fun bits there. I'm going to try and record each of my play sessions and edit together just the funny bits and see if I can get those on Youtube.

      Any follows would be MUCH appreciated! Views are appreciated too of course. I'll try and update here too whenever I plan on streaming. You can also follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/borisof007 too as I tend to tweet out every time I start streaming.


      :D

      Students at Bristol University raised money to send a janitor that works there on his first vacation in over 10 years

      180927062702-herman-and-denise-2-exlarge


      From the article:

      "Custodian Herman Gordon has been spreading kindness at Bristol University for more than 11 years. This summer, students of the UK university decided it was time to return the favor.


      Students launched a crowdfunding campaign to send Gordon, originally from Jamaica, on a weeklong trip to Kingston to see his family for the first time in nearly a decade.


      "I started it because I know everybody loves Herman for his happy energy," said medical student Hadi Al-Zubaidi, who had the idea for the fundraiser. "I thought sending him to his home country of Jamaica would be a beautiful way of giving back for all that he does."

      I'm just beginning season 4 and I think it's really starting to shine. Individual character arcs, development, learning, new characters - it seems to be coming together nicely.


      I've had My Hero Academia recommended to me nonstop as a good one to also start. I've done I think 2 seasons of Tokyo Ghoul? I wish there was a fuckton more of that though because that's a brutal show.


      Any more recommendations?

      Fun story


      I woke up today thinking I had a free day to myself and that I had multiple interviews tomorrow. I proceeded to dress down for work, something I NEVER do (and mostly because Friday is my last day. What're they gonna do - fire me? lol). I proceed to get to BART, take the train to San Francisco, and then have a sort of "huh" moment.


      I take out my phone


      I check my email


      It's 8:27, I have an onsite interview in San Francisco at 10:00 AM. I am wearing joggers and a SF Shock Overwatch shirt.

      FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK


      FUCK


      OK. ok. I got this. OK. What's open? Macy's opens at 10. GAP opens at 9, maybe I can swing GAP and get a Lyft to the interview.....TARGET. TARGET OPENS EARLY


      Proceed to take train 2 stops down - OH BOY DREAMFORCE IS HAPPENING YAY 120,000 FUCKERS IN SUITS WALKING AROUND. GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY WAYYYYYY


      OK I'm in Target. Jeans all look stupid, but I have zero options. Try on jeans, they work OK I suppose. Almost get ready to leave, wait I need a belt! Go back and look at sizes (I'm a fat fuck at 38). I buy a belt that fits 36-42 - awesome. Buy clothes, go to bathroom that has fucking water all over the floor. Have to stand in shoes while changing joggers into jeans - I proceed to slam my head into the stall wall about 4 times. Ow


      OK Jeans are on, now for the bel...ttttttuuughhhh fuck this is FUCKING tight goddamnit and now I have zero time to return and get another fuck fuck damn fuck.


      Go outside, FUCKERS everywhere, no way I'm getting a lyft. Walk back to BART, take train 3 more stops, walk 3/4 mile with a heavy backpack because I thought I was fucking going to work today. By the time I get to interview, I'm nearly sweating gross in shitty baggy jeans with a belt that's giving me a hernia.


      I still nail the interview because I'm a fucking boss


      Leave interview - omg this belt I need to shit SO BAD


      Call lyft, go back to target, go to stall, shit brains out, return jeans and belt.

      She's had a lot more free time on her hands lately being on disability (not knocking her one bit! She needs it). She'd been frustrated with herself lately with the results of some of our Overwatch and PUBG matches this year. So she decided to do something about it.


      She started practicing on her own, communicating, building up her confidence. I want you to understand that 3 years ago she never played a single FPS in her life and she has near life crippling social anxiety. A team based shooter doesn't exactly come easy to a person like that and it's not like I taught her how to play. I had her play with me and she learned through absorption and watching. She learned what I would like to very much call "The Hard Way". I didn't create new accounts for her to play with, she instantly got grouped up with me against people at my skill level. But now....


      Now she can now outheal me and tank at a near platinum level in Overwatch. We're about 100 SR away this season.


      I'm proud, sure. But that pride belongs to her - she earned it through hard fucking work on her own. 


      I'm honored to be able to play with her now, and that's an awesome feeling that I've not had with anyone. Now I just need to work on her being comfortable on camera for twitch streaming. :-)

    • Let's talk positive!

      I noticed something interesting when reading my friends I follow journal entries - the ones that seem the happiest only seem to, well, have happy entries! I think maybe I should try and give this a shot. 

      So positive things - I committed to moving to Austin in about a years time with my gf Alex. I'm really excited about being closer to Chupacabra's. I'm having a ton of interviews lately and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be landing something really soon here. I finally opened up to my sister about some of the things I've had to struggle with and overcome (addiction mostly). That last one was a huge one for me - not a single one of my "friends" or even family knew of any of my problems, so it felt great to be able to tell at least someone. 


      I was thinking about starting to catalogue my life experiences as a potential book. I'm 32 but I feel like I've lived 3 lives already. 


      Ahhhh, what else? Oh! Gonna sell my car - not because I'm hard up for any money but rather because I just don't need it. Anyone want a 2008 Subaru Impreza? Only like 120k miles on it, 100% of those are mine too since I'm the original and only owner. lol

      I really wanna go get that Bob Woodward book - Fear: Trump in the White House. I read the first few chapters on preview through Google Books and it's incredible so far. Highly recommend!


      That's about it I suppose for today. Man that's a lot easier than I thought it would be. What great positive things have happened in your lives?

    • Will Wheaton wrote a wonderful blog on depression and anxiety

      It's an AMAZING read - please go check it out. Here's the first section with a link below for the rest - it truly is worth the investment of your time I promise:

      "Hi, I’m Wil Wheaton. I’m 45 years-old, I have a wonderful wife, two adult children who make me proud every day, and a daughter in-law who I love like she’s my own child. I work on the most popular comedy series in the world, I’ve been a New York Times Number One Bestselling Audiobook narrator, I have run out of space in my office for the awards I’ve received for my work, and as a white, heterosexual, cisgender man in America, I live life on the lowest difficulty setting — with the Celebrity cheat enabled.


      My life is, by every objective measurement, very very good.


      And in spite of all of that, I struggle every day with my self esteem, my self worth, and my value not only as an actor and writer, but as a human being.


      That’s because I live with Depression and Anxiety, the tag team champions of the World Wrestling With Mental Illness Federation."
