When I was younger, my house was situated in a way that let me see my parent's TV from my bunk bed. For a long time, I would to go to sleep watching my dad play Ocarina of Time. But one night, I fell asleep and ended up falling from the top bunk, knocking myself unconscious. I don't remember a thing, but my mom and dad were so worried they rushed me to the ER. Luckily, I didn't miss any important scenes.
When I was applying to college last year, I had no idea what major I wanted. After hours of debating and no decisions, I sat down to play some Assassin's Creed II and blow off some steam. I am now a second year history major.
I go through the Jedi Code in my head to calm down before an exam.
Thanks to my knowledge that major videogame releases happen on Tuesday and the fact that Borderlands 2 comes out on September 18th of this year, I now know that my anniversary is on a Wednesday.
My girlfriend has a bunch of pictures of her family in our apartment. Being an orphan I've put up pictures and statues of Batman, Wolverine, and Captain America instead.
My nephew Jack was born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a disorder with up to 62% mortality rates. His first major surgery was performed during the Cesarian delivery and he immediately was placed on a heart and lung bypass machine. After spending his first five an a half months in a neonatal intensive care unit and enduring countless surgeries he was finally able to leave the hospital and, while still medically-fragile, we could finally breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate this unexpected victory. While we were leaving the hospital, it occurred to me that Jack was seeing sunlight for the first time at nearly half a year old. I couldn't help but think about the "leaving the vault" scene in Fallout and Fallout 3. As I accompanied the joyous procession to the car, I delighted in making Fallout inspired jokes such as "I bet he's wondering why the ceiling is so high in this room and there's only one giant light".
My boyfriend proposed to me at PAX East, in cosplay, onstage at the League of Legends booth. Guess I'm AP, 'cuz I got a Doran's Ring.

And the winner of this week's "You Would Not Believe How Many Emails We've Gotten About People Peeing In Trashcans" Award Goes To
When I read that some people peed in a trashcan when playing games, I didn't think it was much of a big deal. Sometimes I would pee in a water bottle because I didn't have a trashcan in my room.
