PMS and LoL
Forewarning; many of my blog posts are somewhat edited and carefully considered before posting. This, however, is not.
God, this has been a shitty week. Beyond terrible. I can’t tell if its PMS or something else, but I’ve been terribly upset, irritable, disorganized, tired, achy, and pretty much anything else depressing and sad you can think of. I haven’t particularly wanted to go anywhere, I’m hungry but nothing sounds all that appetizing, and I’ve been fighting constantly with my partner about a range of things.
Today, we’re fighting about League of Legends. It’s an online game (like DotA) that I started playing about a month ago. I’ve been having a good time, but playing with my partner in the room is always frustrating. I feel like he’s more annoyed with me than teaching, and I get irritable very fast. Today, we tried playing in separate places but using Skype to chat over the web. He was unhappy with the noises my mic was picking up, and I suggested that the other choice was my webcam mic. He told me that would probably be a lot better, so I went afk for a few seconds to connect it. Of course then Skype freezes, alt-tab won’t work, my computer is totally fucked and I’m afk for a couple of minutes instead. He’s pissed, my team-mate is pissed, and my computer is still working like total crap.
Now, I understand being pissed off but seriously it is a fucking game can you please calm down. You would think these people’s lives were banking on our gameplay. My partner continues to tell me that he can’t believe I would go afk to change out a mic (despite his earlier bitching about the mic I was using). I’m pissed not only because we’re fighting over a game but because earlier this week when my internet was sucking, he chose to go home to play his game rather than stay and spend time with me.
I am not less important than a game. And we really shouldn’t be fighting over it.
PS: I’m sick of everyone in that game assuming I’m a man.
