      I passed, somehow. It actually wasn't that bad, got a 93% overall. So this means I'm moving back home to SouthWest Indiana. Got me a place on the north side of Evansville, so it's going to be nice to have a place close to my grandmother. Recruiting sounds like a hard job, unless you're motivated for it. So I'm going to do my best to stay pumped and get out there every day and give it my 100%.

      I'm currently learning how to be an Army recruiter. It's crazy how much goes into this. Every day is mind-numbingly draining as we are taught huge amounts of eligibility rules. At the end of this tunnel, though, I'll be a recruiter back in my hometown. Going to be great to hang out at home and be so close to my family. My Grandma is getting old, and it'll be nice to be able to hang out with her, take her to lunch, that kind of stuff.

      I'm not sure that I'm doing the right thing with my money. I'm saving up a decent amount. But I'm also lending it to folks pretty openly. I'm spending it on loot crates and collectors editions of games, but I'm not really getting out an experiencing things. I don't know, we'll see how I feel in a few months about it.


      I'm ready to get back into shape, I've been pretty lazy lately. If I'm going to stay in the Army (hardly a firm decision) I suppose I should put some effort into getting healthy. I've been cooking more meals for myself lately.


      Hope everyone else is doing well.

      Looks like I'm going to be seeing it up in St Louis on the 28th. Movie looks great, can't wait to check it out.

      I guess I should join in, since it's part of my job. My goal is to cut 20 lbs. I did it last year, and then got lazy and packed it right back on. So I'm going for it now. Going to hit the gym at least 3 days a week, then do workouts here at the house 3 more days.

      Gotta love 60-120s, interval workouts, and pushups. Hope everyone else is as excited.

      I am burnt. To a crisp. I also think my muscles are sore from all the swimming yesterday, but all my pain receptors are busy.

      Got Ray and Gus to sign my grifball bag today. Kinda cool. I'm not really in for adulation. They just signed my stuff and I left.

      After that I wandered the main hall for a bit. Not as much to see as there was last year, I feel like. The absence of any Halo or 343 or Bungie presence was obvious to me immediately. Ubisoft has a large gameplay booth, but the line is interminable.

      I caught the founders panel, which was awesome. All 5 of the original crew were there, and it was great hearing them reminisce.

      Then came the Cards Against Humanity game. Hilarious. The VIP badge made sure I got into both, save me a ton of wait time in lines.

      The VIP party was tonight as well. It had a TON of RT folks there. They rented out a whole bar. Great venue. I left after 30 minutes. Same reason I avoid bars. So loud you can't hear yourself talk, let alone anyone else. No worries, seemed like a lot of folks were down for that.

      I just ate dinner, finally. Now I'm going to go to my room, clean up, and go to bed. Hope everyone else is having fun.

      Went floating down the San Marcos today. Was a ton of fun. Turns out I'm not as smart as I thought. I'll just wait a moment so everyone can gasp properly.

      I am sunburnt to high heaven. Water sizzled off of me in the shower. I think I'm going to set off a smoke alarm when I pull the blankets up. It's HOT. Remember kids, wear sunscreen.

      Had a great time at the Charity Auction. Didn't win a thing time, but I have friends who did. Good for them. I also didn't get blasted this year. Hope I made a better impression on my new friends.

      It's 1 AM now, and this hotel is delivering me breakfast in 6 hours. Goodnight. RTX starts tomorrow

      I don't understand how anyone can like the combat in this game. Batman has no sense of movement. He will literally swing for days away from all enemies, and then when you do find an enemy you REALLY want to pound to death, he decides he'd rather jump between 5 or 6 different enemies, rather than focus on the ONE right in front of you. It's so frustrating that I'm literally on the second to last mission, and you get flooded with enemies, that I'm about to say fuck it and give the game away.

        It's all good. You've got a good way of looking at things on the forum.
