Slowly but surely it seems like things are coming together. While I do wish the whole job situation would move a bit faster, other than that, I have no reason at all to complain.

The wrestling show I went to was a lot of fun. I saw a few people I hadn't seen in a while, and got to see some fun matches. Valdo did well for himself that night and I was very proud. 1 bad bump aside, he was great. He's definitely gotten a lot better and it shows.

Got my fingerprint done the other day, so within 2 weeks I should be getting an airport ID, and I also passed my Food Safety test. I didn't do that great (I got a 78), but fuck it, I passed so now I have that and can put it on my resume. The certificate will take 4-6 weeks to get here they said, but hopefully I can still work before that since I have proof that I did indeed pass it.

Now that all this crap is over, I can have more of a life now. I am so backlogged with video games and movies that it's absolutely ridiculous. Between 400 movies I physically own which have gone unwatched on top of 300+ in my Netflix queue, that's a lot to go through. On the video game side of the spectrum, I have either not finished or even started the following;

Shank
Red Dead Redemption
Limbo
Bloodrayne: Betrayal
Darksiders (which I may or may not finish)
Bioshock
Bioshock Infinite
Farcry 3
Tomb Raider
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
The Last of Us (doesn't come out til Tuesday, but it'll be added to the pile)

The last game I did finish was Telltale Games The Walking Dead. I wasn't sure how much I would like it, but damn, what a great experience that was. It's point and click, so it's more like an interactive movie than an actual game. The emphasis is on making choices and solving little puzzles, while also occasionally adding in some action.

What I enjoyed was the story and characters. Some people you hate right off the bat, but you see other sides of them based on how you talk and treat them. Someone you thought might be useless turns out to be very helpful, someone you thought you could trust turns out to really be a backstabber and so forth.

The best example is the dynamic between your character Lee, and the little girl he rescues named Clementine. She seems him as a protector, and every time I did something that upset or scared her, I truly felt terrible. Whenever she was in danger, I felt scared for her and made sure to always rescue her in time, and if someone else put her in danger, I always chose the option of yelling at them. Throughout the 10 or so hours I played this, our bond grew strong and it felt great.

The ending...wow. I am not ashamed to admit that it was very sad and it made me cry. I look forward to playing this again and seeing how choosing different answers and actions changes the experience. I can definitely see why this won Game of the Year last year and look forward to Volume 2, which is set to come out later this year.

A few days ago I finally got to see my wonderful girlfriend! It wasn't for very long, but I still had a great time. We had some Taco Bell then spent the rest of the night enjoying each others company in the backseat.

This weekend she will be at Anime Next and I already miss her like crazy. I swear, the 2 of us need to find good jobs and move in together because I honestly can't stand not being around her for longer than a day. Even when we were just friends, we were pretty much attached at the hip, and being officially together has made this bond even stronger. I really do love her so much and can't imagine being without her.

Today was bad movie day with Gene and holy shit, did we ever pick 3 putrid pieces of shit to watch. We started with Rodentz, which was super boring, then switched to American Warships which was almost as boring, then watched ANOTHER horrible piece of crap called Easter Bunny Kill Kill. We ended the night with Stitches, which was a fun killer clown movie.

Tomorrow I'll be meeting 2 of his friends and we're going to check out The Purge. I heard it wasn't all that good, but what the hell, any excuse to go out is good by me. Sunday I'll be seeing Pam and Milton who I haven't hung out with in months.

All in all, life is good.
