But first I'd like to tell you about how I have been really good at riding my bike to work like almost everyday, and I even rode this morning even though the weather was a little icky. But I forgot to wear a hat or a hood or rain pants, so when it turned into Oregon today (the sky opened up and the heavens let it rip, seriously) I got suuuuuper drenched. So I'd like you to do either or both of the following: a) be impressed by my diligence; b) feel sorry for me and bring me vegan hot coco. Also, is there such a thing? I need there to be such a thing. Oh, look, it's a chai with almond milk... ok I feel better.

... let's hope.
I'm still pretty new to this whole video game thing. I started playing a little in college (and that wasn't that long ago, sheesh) with all my friends. I found a few games I really like: Maximo, Devil May Cry, God of War, Guilty Gear...

And then I met my boyfriend, Caleb. Now, there are a lot of things I like about him and we won't get into all that and turn this into a gaggy smoosh fest. But one thing I do like about him is how much he is into his own things. Video games is a BIG one. When we first started dating, he was all about promoting his stream channel on Twitch (and I didn't even know what Twitch was). It turns out he and his friends all get together and play video games and they can stream it online. People can watch and talk to them in a chat from anywhere in the world (many of their viewers are from Europe, actually).

So now we're really excited to keep the momentum of the channel going and I've been recruited to play for the stream also. Caleb came over and set up all my gear and worked it out for me (after a few hiccups).

I did this while I was sitting on my butt during the marathon...
ok, everyone was sitting on their butts...
If you're able to tune in, I'd love the support while I will no doubt be wandering around the game world being very much lost and confused!
Here's to new things to try and saving up favors to cash in with your boyfriend in the near future (I'm thinking I'll make him play some Devil May Cry soon)!
