i've been in a ride-along today with volunteers-on-patrol at my local community safety center.
i loved it a lot, omg, i got to see all of those little residential areas i usually never go to and i got to meet really nice and cool people, got to ride in a white van, learned quite a lot today about the process.
Finally 100%ed Super Mario 74, my favorite Mario 64 hack, after about three years of playing it. I'm personally proud of myself for it since there's a huge difficulty spike toward the end, and I had a corrupted save state that took away eight of my stars.
Today, after a bit of anxiety from my end, the guy I've been dating for about two months admitted he has a few anxieties with being in a relationship that him and I are learning to address together, but that it's what he really wants. This is important because I've been avoiding labelling our meetups for a while, and he actually broached the subject himself and called us a relationship without me saying anything.
Suffice to say, I'd like to think it's official now, and we've promised to speak more about it tonight after he takes me out to dinner for my b-day.
I love this guy a lot and I'm incredibly happy
update: It's official, he loves me and we're boyfriends now. Actually legit cried in the car when I was driving home. I have no words other than pure joy
Today, I publicly announced that I'll be identifying under a new first name to match my gender fluidity, as well as a few other reasons I can explain in private.
So yeah, after a few people agreed that it fits me, I'm going to be calling myself Robin as my real name from now on. If you happen to know my biological name, you can throw it out the window because I'm not using it anymore. It feels a lot better to have a different name.
