She accidentally joined my GTA golf game, one bad joke and a few months later I made the trip from California to Australia. Sometimes they actually are girls. : gaming

I sometimes wonder if I should post stuff like this, but I’m a little self conscious when it comes to photos. I met a girl while she was studying in Australia on an exchange program. Her friend ended up being my roommate. We hung out a bit, playing (and beating) Gears of War 1 & 2, Resident Evil 5 and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (I learned valuable lessons that day. Co-op, yes. Competitive games, not unless we’re on the same team).

A month later, we started dating. 3 months later, I proposed before she flew home. After a year of prep and long distance, we got married. I didn’t actually meet her parents until the day after I landed in the States, a week before the wedding. Needless to say, they were hesitant at first.

We’ve been married eight years now. We just spent tonight playing Red Dead Redemption together in prep for the sequel (She doesn’t know it yet, but I pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition for her birthday. Sure, it’s not her birthday, but still).

We have a one year old. Tonight she picked up the spare controller and started mashing the sprint button like her mum does and trying to move with the left joystick while watching the TV.

That’s my girl ;D
