      I did it. I defeated the wild hunt and as far as I can tell got the "mega happy ending" I'm going to put it down for a while and pay some shooters or something for the next few weeks. I'm sure I'll go back to it for the DLC, but for now I need to get into some other things. Steam says I had 264 hrs played. Wow. I think steam counted all the time I'd save and pause the game and then just close my laptop. I'll have to check in game to verify.


      Edit: 115 hours played in game. Apparently shutting my lap top Steam still records hours. 

    • Trying to be neighborly

      3 months ago

      Today I received a note on my jeep asking me not to park where I do because they have no place to put their garbage cans on trash day and because they can't back out of their drive way. I'm not blocking the driveway I guess its just close. 


      (Back ground) I just moved in with my girlfriend a few weeks ago. I've got a truck and a jeep wrangler. We also have a roommate so all together we have 4 vehicles to park. GF parks in the garage. Once we have room for the jeep we will put that in there too but not yet. Either me or my roommate parks in the driveway on one side to leave room for my gf to get in and out because she leaves and comes home first every day. 


      My initial reaction was annoyance. Its a public street fuck off "2512" if you can't even leave a name. But then I cooled. I don't know his name. He's my neighbor and we haven't met. I think if he's knocked on the door and asked politely I would not have had such a knee jerk reaction. Maybe I'm putting a tone on his letter he didn't intend. So I'm planning to go introduce myself this afternoon and explain that we're planning to put the jeep in the garage as soon as I have storage space. I'll see if there is another place to park it but that is the most convenient place for me to park. If he's nice I'll consider inconveniencing myself for their convenience, to be neighborly. If the tone I put on their letter was the correct tone my jeep will likely stay put. Its a public street and I drive it 3-4 times a week so I'm not breaking any HOA rules. 


      If they're not there I have a note, with my name and mobile number on it as well as my address, but I'd rather meet in person so they can tell I wrote it with a jovial tone, not vengeful. 



      Update: They didn't answer the door, although their car was in the driveway. This weekend I got the garage sorted and the jeep parked in there. 



    • Late start today at work

      The motel next door is not the best place. I'm pretty sure they rent by the hour. Upon arriving in the vacinity of my office this morning there were police officers on the corners redirecting traffic. Apparently there was some sort of stand off in the hotel. It didn't last more than an hour and now I'm free to start my day. But I want to know what happened!!! Where is the news media when I need them. 

    • How to change career paths.

      So far I've hit up my Alma mater, for help with the resume. Aside from that, all I can do is try and learn and read up on different subjects to see if they catch my attention and make money doing what I'm doing to build a little nest egg for any potential transition period. Wish me luck.

      So its been about a month since I became a full fledged lawyer. I've been applying everywhere but haven't heard back yet. I have heard nothing, not even rejections. Starting to get a bit worried.

      So I finally passed the Texas Bar exam. Took two tries and almost a year of studying, test, waiting, studying, test, waiting but I finally finished it. I am licensed and in good standing with the State bar of Texas. Now to find a job. Or should I try and go into business for myself? Lonestarlite Esq.?

      So happy to be done with that beast.

      Cheers!

    • Why am I a RoosterTeeth fan?

      I'm a RoosterTeeth fan because of Barbara Dunkleman. I remember when I first met her at RTX 2011. Actually... I thought she was a total weirdo... So... I guess thats not why I watch RoosterTeeth. Truthfully she's cool but the obsession with dicks and puns is a little over the top.

      I am a fan of RooserTeeh in all aspects. The community is amazing. The bonds they've formed over the years, the relationships they've built, I don't really participate in it, but the fact that they're doing it, I respect that. Red vs Blue is what first brought me to RoosterTeeth. I didn't even use the site, I found the episodes wherever I could torrent them online. The jokes and story were always hilarious to me. Then I discovered the RoosterTeeth website. I felt like an idiot for not finding it sooner. I became an instant fan of all the shorts and comics and podcasts. Once I started in I was hooked. I binged through everything I could find on RoosterTeeth.com. I became a sponsor soon after that as a way of contributing to the cause.

      The reason I am a RoosterTeeth fan is because of the content. All of the shows and the jokes and the characters have provided me with hours upon hours of enjoyment. RoosterTeeth is my favorite entertainment portal. I've been apprehensive about each growth the company has gone through over the years. Adding many new employees and the merger with Fullscreen worried me that the content would be changed or what I liked about all the shows would be watered down in someway. However, RoosterTeeth has retained its character through each change, and now they've been producing even more content for me to enjoy.

      I am a RoosterTeeth fan because of RoosterTeeth. I can't wait for Lazer Team and all of the future programing. @RTContests

    • Its not just stuff...

      I recently was the victim of a burglary in which my gun safe was stolen. The entire safe. They pulled it out and dragged it away. Most of the stuff is just stuff and it can all burn for all I care. But some of the guns in that safe have a sentimental value. They are place holders of memories and moments in my life. They are totems or portkeys.

      There was an old .22 pump rifle that was taken. It belonged to my great grandfather and was given to me by my grandmother. It was about 70 years old from the research I did on it. It was something special to me and I remember the day it was given to me.

      A revolver that was stolen was given to my dad by his neighbor years ago. She was an older woman and her husband had passed away. My dad always mowed her yard for her and trimmed her trees and helped her out around the house if she asked. When she eventually sold the house and moved she gave him this beautiful Ruger .44 magnum revolver in stainless steel. It was my dad's good samaritan. I love that story and that pistol always reminded me of it.

      My Winchester hunting rifle was given to me by my grandfather and he and various members of my family used it for deer hunting. Its the only gun I have ever used for deer hunting. My grandfather was with me when I used it to take my first deer. It had all of these little quirks that you had to know about to fire it accurately. It reminded me so much of my grandfather because almost everything he owns is that way. You must "hold your mouth just right" to get it to work.

      There were other guns that I have built or modified with my friend and it is sad to lose those but we have time to build new guns and memories. The memories associated with my grandparents and my father cannot be so easily replaced. This journal is a placeholder for these memories and I will do my best to keep them independently.

      The burglar did not just steal things, he stole memories and stories, those things cannot be replaced.
