I just installed Counter-Strike: Source, and I am not sure why. I think it’s because I want to see cs_italy again and hear that music just one more time..

I spent my lunch break filling out my ballot. There are still a couple local measures I need to research more.

Woke up this morning and everyone in my family is sick, including me. Definitely taking a sick day.
