Been looking at Fantasy Flight Games new Star wars RPG "Edge of the Empire" (pen and pencil kind) really interesting and unique how skills are rolled. Tho I don't think it does well with power creep.

Really tempted to get a group going and run this as a GM.

i don't want to be an example, i'm happy with how my life is turning out. enjoying military lifestyle and my first deployment. i am part of the 1%, and am even less than that, because I chose to work hard to go through basic combat training a second time, pass where I failed before and fought for everything I'm currently doing. my life is an everlasting struggle, but I am constantly growing.

I believe in God, but I don't need anybody to tell me how to pray or how to fast or how to do silly nonsense to please Him, because I do it in my own way, I just think it's ridiculous that religious people have to look to somebody other than God for their own salvation and get all holier than thou about it. people are not perfect, He is, so why not just go straight to the source for answers instead of relying on some "ordained" person?

was depressed today til i went to the gym for some brazilian jujitsu training-which i suck at but still i felt a hundred times better afterwards. i think some things are changing with the way i think and the way i deal with people.

depressed because we're possibly having our shifts changed, which means less time for training, and they are making us take online classes which have nothing to do at all with our jobs here or back home. there's not much i can do about it besides 'not do it' and get negative counseling statement, but after this stuff i am questioning whether i really want to be a nco.

this st patrick's day blows. no alcohol. not even mike's hard lemonade.

got combatives level 1 training the whole work week, and i get back when the work week is over, so i'm kinda happy about that. maybe i'll run into my organic unit over where i'm going to be training. don't really care to cause that may make me depressed on the way back here next week.

trying to figure out what i want to do when i get home. being a cop part-time sounds a bit intriguing. gonna just focus on here and now though the next 2 months. thinking about home drives me crazy.

I took my own advice from my last post here: I felt like crap all day yesterday. Dizzy and weak and blah.

I still managed to get out and pick up mom a corned beef and cabbage boiled dinner for lunch... but I can tell you: the smell of that in my car did my already buzzy head and queasy stomach no real favors.

Got home, took Tylenol and Alka-Seltzer Plus, and slept most of the day away.

I feel a bit better today. Still a bit weak.

Went achievement hunting on Forza last night after I got back up. Got most of them. The rest will just take time to accomplish... but I'll probably get them eventually.

I bowled another tournament yesterday, this time the Northeast Amateur Tournament. Strangely, my scratch score (559) was better than what I had in any league night in the last three months. First game (227) was clean, too.

I jsut bought the new star wars RPG "Edge of the Empire" beginner box. Really like the system. It is rather abstract and relies on narrative. The best part is the skill rolling system HELPS tell the narrative.

Trying to get a group together to try this out

Bought Far Cry 3 and Kingdoms of Amalur on Steam. Both amazing games so far, but can't honestly say I have been playing video games nearly as much as I used to be. School work/part time job takes its toll on my free time. (of which i'm NOT sleeping)

Been doing a lot of 'finding myself' lately, and working out past events in my life, in attempt to remedy my loneliness and sadness. Just waiting it out until I hit college and I can have a fresh start. Only a couple of months to go.

THe one thing I hate about far cry, and cannot believe they fixed it in playtest, is in the opening where you sneak pass the guard dog. Took me 14 tries to get pas it, TWICE! Ended up having to get ahead of Grant and go through before the event happened

Yea, mainly with Mouse and KEyboard and not a stupid controller. No it was the lowest. Maybe I missed something, but i stayed to the right as far as possible when grant say "Ok" and had to skirt the rock, but the dog (or human) still detected me.
