I've seen other posts with this problem (so I know it's not unheard of), but I've gone through most of the suggested fixes without much luck. I made sure .Xauthority is owned by me and not root (-rw------- 1 jgodwin jgodwin 150 Sep 14 15:24 .Xauthority) and I have not made any edits to my .profile. Here is what my .xsessions-errors looks like:

Now there are a lot of things in here that don't sound good, but unfortunately, I'm not really sure what most of them mean. I was using my computer just fine this morning, and rebooted when a Javascript VPN log in applet wasn't working correctly (one that I use routinely without issue from my employer), and after the reboot, I was unable to log in. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
