    Sometimes being reminded that I could've been a James. It was an idea that floated around before I was named Kristoffer. It's not that long, and it can also be abbreviated into just Jim, which I've also liked, and that it's only one syllable, and that the abbreviation is shorter than Kris.

    I also was about to be named Kristoffer James, but it was decided that it would've been too long. Looking back at it, I could've just returned to ETS back in 2011 as James or Jim, or any variation with James or Jim in it if they weren't taken back then, since I could've used a real name that wasn't mine, yet was still connected to my actual name in some way. It has also given me ideas for E-mail addresses and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

    I also like the name James, because of me also happening to like the following.

    James Bond
    Slim Jim
    Aphex Twin - Richard David James
    The Angry Video Game Nerd - James Rolfe

    Getting observed teaching a lesson and not getting overcome with nerves and losing it. Got to be a first!

    Eating less junk, a bit more fruits and veggies, and exercise. And a lot of self-motivation.

    "You're very impressive"
    *I make a weird face and look at him*
    "Do people tell you that? That you're impressive?"
    *I shake my head*
    "Well, they should. Because you are"
    *He covers me with a blanket and pets my head*

    UUUGHGHGHGH. That is now the best exchange I have ever had in my life. That melted my cold ass heart. Lol. Two days later, and I'm still thinking about it.

    This man has the greatest game ever.

    I started a fundraiser offhand to raise a couple of hundred bucks for something that happened back home. Got picked up by my local news back home. Did an interview.

    Now a reporter from USA TODAY just emailed and wants me to do a phone interview.

    I know that USA TODAY is kind of the LOL of national newspapers. But holy shit. I just asked her if I could call in like 30 minutes because I had work to do. But uhhh... I'm nervous as shit.

    San Francisco trip went pretty well (despite a very rough start). I didn't get a chance to explore the city much, so that sucks. I did manage to see a few things (the Castro District was probably the highlight; that place is awesome). Got to live exclusively as a woman for a few days, which was nice. Not sure how much it helped me decide what I'm doing but it was nice to be able to interact with the world in a way I actually wanted. Now I'm back home and back to reality. Back to my shitty job tomorrow. Woo hoo.

    There's someone in my life I can tell the most depressing aspects of my history too, and yet they make me smile when we discuss it. Right now there is nothing I would exchange that for.

    I'm going to Santa Fe next week for a couple of days with my cool aunt. I have several nieces and nephews that think I AM a cool aunt already and I need some training before they figure out I'm not.

    I like having any excuse to wear a tie. I always question how Italian I really am until I throw on a dress shirt.
