      Been a long time since I've written a journal. It makes me kinda sad that I don't really hang out on the Rooster Teeth site anymore, though I do lurk from time to time. Occasionally tossing out thumbs up or comments. I just don't have the free time to follow the community like I once did. I will not ever regret being a part of this site for the past 10 years, though.

      I just wanted to make a post since I hadn't in a while. Life is going really, fantastically well for me.

      I have a good, stable job, working at Costco. I do the purchasing for the food court each day, taking inventory and making sure we are stocked up for each day and the start of the next. It's a pretty hard job, lots of physical labor, but it's good pay and benefits, and I like my coworkers. No real complaints, unlike most of my previous jobs.

      School has also been progressing. I had basically dropped out of college completely for a while, but I'm back on track. Just finished the spring semester with two As and two Bs, and one A was in Calculus, which I was super excited about. I managed a 94% on our cumulative final! I was worried but I apparently did better than I thought!

      I've also started working out a lot more. I'm doing the Insanity workout videos, on top of my physical job. Leaves me feeling pretty worn out at times, but the results are worth it. Over the last 5 or 6 years, I've gone from around 250+ lbs to a stable weight of about 170 lbs. All that was from just dieting and moderate exercise. The downside is that I was left with a lot of loose skin. Now, I don't want to get surgery for something so petty as my skin, so I was left with waiting for it to tighten on its own (which might never happen) and working out to fill the loose skin with muscle. I chose that one, and while I'm not bodybuilder status by any means, I definitely feel a lot better about myself than I did even just a few months ago.

      Lastly, but more important of all to me, I'm getting married in a couple weeks! My wonderful fiancée Alex said yes, and so she and I are getting married on our 4 year anniversary in just under two weeks, on the 21st. (Yes, it happens to be Father's Day, we know. We keep hearing that.) I have fallen madly in love with her over the years. More than I even thought was possible. We've had many ups and downs, fights and make up sex, but through it all, she's been my rock and my guiding hand. She helped prompt me into going back to school. She's been my motivation for workout out when it gets really hard and I don't feel up for it. She just makes me want to be a better person, not just for her sake, but for my own sake. She makes me feel worth it. I love that about her, and so since I liked it, I put a ring on it, haha.

      So that's my life. I don't know how many people even follow my journal anymore, but I thought I'd leave this here as a reminder to myself of where I was in life at this time. I just want to be able to appreciate my life, and share it with the world.

      Peace,
      Me

      P.S. Me and my loving (almost) wife.

      Long time since I last journal'd, but eh, there it is. I'm happy, healthy, and whole, and getting ready to have a great Christmas day with my family.

      I hope you all are having a great Christmas with your families and loved ones.

      As the title says, I just want to mention to any of my followers who don't follow or don't know about RvBCA that the meetup this year is just around the corner. You can see the full details on the blog post over there.

      If you'll be in the SoCal area on July 20th, you should come on down. There will be s'mores, a bonfire, and good times to be had at the beach! smiley0.gif

      Other than that, life is grand. Well, that's not true, life kinda sucks with work and all, but hey, at least I have a job, money, and a roof over my head. Can't complain too much. smiley1.gif

      I hope to see you all at RvBCA next weekend!

      Peace,
      Me.

      I have it. My gamertag is my username here: Dragonmanweb. Hit me up if you want to play. It'll be my main game for a while, bumping out poor neglected Borderlands 2.

      I'm sorry BL2 - we had fun together, but killing bandits and skags is just not as satisfying as killing 13 year old kids who mouth off on XBL.

      Started school again today. Fall semester has me in three classes - Spanish, history, and math. First day of class went well. Two of my three professors are clearly insane, though. Only my math teacher seems sane, and even then, it was only the first day. We'll see how it goes.

      As far as work goes, I'm still at Sea World. Hours are starting to slack since people are going back to school. I'm trying to get a job again at Sony doing the game testing. Considering my schedule leaves me totally occupied on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'm not sure how well it will work, but I'm trying.

      Not much else happening. I know I haven't been posting much, but I still try to read everything people post. I hope you're all having a good time. smiley0.gif

      Peace,
      Me.

        I was going for the record, but either they changed how time online was counted, or they lost some of my recorded online time. I used to be 12th most online person. Now I'm like 50th or so.

        I used to work at a GameStop next to a Pizza Hut. I could very easily imagine this being done at the place I worked on a really slow day.

      oooh for sure bring some more wood, if you can. I am going to drop off some to Andrew in the morning, but I'm not sure if he'll use it during the day or not, so in case he does, it'd be nice to have some more later.

      I am bringing tortilla chips and coke and coke zero. Whatever else you want to bring would be great (worst case scenario: we just take it home. LOL).

      Pick up the first title first. It makes the sequel more fun and somewhat less frustrating. The sequel is much more difficult so it's nice to have a bit of a background with the engine before diving in, and some of the recurring themes from the first game make appearances in the second game which make it a bit cooler.

      And once you DO pick up the first game, let's go for those co-op achievements.

      How do I get around the lack of cash vault/ loss prevention experience?

    • Alex_vanPutten

      6 years ago

      Never mind. The site won't let me continue on since I answered "No" to that question. fuck.

    • Alex_vanPutten

      6 years ago

      though, I can't cook, and the only other job available for 18 year olds requires "at least 90 days of work experience in a loss prevention and/or cash vault setting."

      I don't have that. Would that ruin my chances? (still applying, nonetheless)

      I suck at driving in that game as much as anyone else in L.A. Noire! lol there's an option to have a cinematic-change-shot driving option. Who in their right mind would choose that option (it's up on the d-pad).

      This game is making me a bad listener. When I interrogate I often just stare at the people faces shutting off my listening skills.

      You'd think it would just be apart of the routine, but somehow it slips my mind. I turn the car off, check for my wallet, and get out. Realize my car has no locking mechanism besides the inside one, so it's not like I have a keyless entry method. I just leave them in the ignition and forget them.
