To override your user password:
First, note your exact username. If you're not sure, you can run "whoami" in a terminal to list it. It should just list "beetlebooster" or "george" or whatever.
Then, reboot into Recovery Mode. At the terminal prompt, execute "passwd username" (substitute appropriately). Then enter the password you'd like to have.
Finally, you can execute "shutdown -r now" to reboot, or just tap the power button and let it turn off.
