I got my new PC fully built and running smooth as silk. Oh god. I don't think I'll bother going back to console gaming after this.

What computer did you get/what's your specs? I got the blue screen of death the other day and I only managed to get windows reinstalled this morning. Something is definitely wrong with my hard drive, so I think its time I start putting money away for a desktop.

What made my day was I found out my new gender studies professor is really gung ho about trans rights and points out cissexism in our readings, so this term I won't have to be that person who keeps bringing it up. Whoo!

It snowed again today. So what else is new. The snow froze. That's different. Used to seeing icycles, but the snow froze on stuff and it just looks so cool. I have a fat little pine tree in my yard that looks just like a giant snow cone.

He said he got a brand new computer, not a Commodore 64.

Here's a screenshot album of Skyrim on my computer. I'm still tweaking it here and there, messing with ENBs and such.

I don't have any games with multiplayer options except Saints Row 2, and I gotta mod the shit of that before its playable :/ Didn't port well, the car handling is terrible.

This made me tear up with happy tears of awesomeness. Seriously makes me hopeful that the future is'nt going to be a terrible fight everyday, just for the right to live.

On the topic i've begun my search for a therapist, so i can get started on my "harry benjimen" path. But, that also means when i find one and go to a session i'll be regretably discharged. Although that idea pains me, it feels really good to finally be heading to making some progress with my life. My Mom actually suggested i do that. Which is even more awesome because shes extremely right wing, gung ho military. Progress! Yay.

I don't think I have any multi player games either, I also have the grand total of two friends on Steam, it's so hard to make friends you know, even online . Perhaps I am just not very good at socialising.

Things are changing, but slowly. I think trans rights is definitely where feminists and queer activists need to be right now, the academia is far behind I think but I'm really hopeful that its changing, we even talked about gender and dualism today in religion for a bit.

Also, congrats! Hate that you'd get discharged (would it be medical discharge?), but I'm glad your mom is so awesome about it. People surprise you!

I'll add you! I'll also try to find some cheapie good multiplayer game while I'm at it.

Do some games keep scores? Even if we don't play multiplayer I get competitive about scores. I had a serious facebook game rivalry with Geo for a while.

The weather was gorgeous today. I went for a walk and because it was just so lovely out I ended up going all the way down to Cannery Row, about three miles, and stopped by the aquarium. Then Jake picked me up on his way home, which was nice since it cooled off quickly once the sun started setting.

Find me under the name misscheyenne. I'm clearly so inventive. You'll know it's me if the profile picture is of a polar bear sticking its tongue out

Good for you MoC, glad that you feel you're getting where you want to be even if it's gonna take some time.

Opened up a working computer to do minor repair/troubleshoot... didn't kill it. And fixed the problem.

Peruvian food. Never had it, popped in to a place I'd driven by and was absolutely floored. I'd just about given up on restaurants around here, but these guys have their acts together.

Not quite my "day," but... This past Monday my wife was approved for her green card. So it's more like my year has been made.
