I won! well qualified.... actually both  
Last night there was a karaoke contest and the winner gets qualified into the big competition with the top prize being $500, YES PLEASE! AND I WON last night and therefor qualified. :) To top it off this older lady came up to me and I guess she's throwing a 50th bday party for a friend and they're having a karaoke contest there as well, and she wanted me to come because I sang so well (insert warm fuzzy feeling here), top prize is $300. She asked if I was interested and mentioned the money and my head was /nodnodnodnodnodnod. The support that I got from the strangers there last night was enough to make me see that although I'll probably never be a rich and famous singer... I'm famous there and rich in quality friends and awesome people that are kind enough to let me know I did well. That makes me happy.

Work is going well. I still love my job as a Game Master and I work with some pretty awesome people. It's an extremely stressful job as I'm doing what I always do and rework everything to make it perfect so I'm taking on a lot of responsibility. I'm hoping this will pay off however as they see that I'm working my ass off, hopefully they'll be more apt to promote me. :) I did get a company award for Best Support, so at least I know they're paying attention. I tested a new FPS game that we might be acquiring that is AMAZING. I keep telling people that my dream is that we get that game and then I get promoted to Senior GM and moved to that game. I want to start it, I want to do it right and show this company what I'm capable of.

Other than that my health is doing well. I seem to still be in remission at the moment and it's been that way for almost two years. Super happy about that. My Dad unfortunately just recently got diagnosed with MS as well. He's in a more advanced stage than I. :( He seems to be handling it well though, doing what I did to handle it which is just to move on with life and not think/worry about it. They keep saying that MS is one of those diseases they're hoping to cure in my lifetime and now that we have stem cell research OK'd that's looking more and more like a possibility. So here's hoping!

That's all for now folks :) Hope everybody out there is doing well!
