Joel and Jack meet the Kinectimals

I know I've been gone for quite a while, but I'll try and be somewhat visible from now on.
I'm really not liking this new site. Seems way to buggy compared to the old site, and it feels really unfriendly and not easy to use (plus, I remember RT saying they'd get a better video player? If thats the case, they should go back to the old one, because the current one is even worse than the previous one, based on how long its been taking to load videos)
So, some life updates.
- @Ember and i got engaged earlier in the month
- On September 1st, Ember will be flying back to America, while I save up for Marriage and Partner visas, while potentially dealing with (finally) moving out and getting my own place/getting a place with friends.
- I've really gotten into my writing, enough so that I got a website up and running, and have pages dedicated to my very own Universe (which is still heavily under development), short stories (of both original content, and stories written within a Universe, like Destiny), as well as linking to places where I've done stuff (like eventually adding a link to all my Chupa work, or the Lets Play videos i did with @Nester82)
Please tell me what you think of my stuff :D
- My right wrist, originally believed to be either tendinitis or tendinosis, was actually looked at by a Doctor.
Only info they gave me was that its not either of those. So because I can't afford to go see the various specialists it would require to figure out whats wrong with my wrists (my left wrist is nowhere near as bad as my right, but I still need to be careful), I have to somehow balance what I can do, with what I need to do.
- I got my Gamerscore into the 211,000s, and completed a few more games since I posted my completion list. (Thank you Windows 10 for all the free games!!!!)
- Got these little cuties from @Myshu's Chupababy adoption thread. (You have until the 30th of August if you'd like one)
Penny Polendina, and Winter Schnee (I have no clue how to insert images on this new site.........)
So yeah, thats pretty much my life at the moment.
I might try and do Teamspeak again once Ember leaves, but I'm not sure.
How has everyone been?

...and we're both stumped.
"I find myself having trouble and even @DevilMayCrye is stumped.
I was trying to upload an image here on RT, but after clicking the post button, it took me to a blank page. Refreshing did no good. I tried to upload to tumblr so I could instead use an html link to post it in a journal. But then tumblr made the "post" button unclickable any time I added any image. I tried many times in firefox, chrome, and IE. On two different laptops. With the same results each time.
I've tried defragging, uninstalling/reinstalling browsers, updating them, updating flash, shutting the computer off and back on. Nothing has worked. Tried looking for ideas on google and nothing we found has worked.
This now makes it impossible to do anything with my art, which is currently my only livelihood and I'm frustrated near tears.
Does anyone have any idea what to do? Because we are completely out of ideas. (And getting a new computer, or updating the hardware is out of the question)
Anyone able to lend a hand?

Shit, its been 11 months since I last posted something O.O
I'll deal with everything else involved with that later, coz its a lot, and I need to ease myself back into the community first.
Anyway, I'm damned close to hitting 200k Gamerscore (imperfectly, due to a stupid odd numbered achievement -_-), and I'd thought it would be cool to reflect on the games I've perfected.
Also, because I'm less than 200 GS away from 200k, I'm gonna use the Devil May Cry HD collection to push me over the threshold.
Why, I here you ask? Because I didn't want to start a new game, wanted it to be a game special to me, and because I wanted to put more effort into having the game completed. (Hell, I don't even know if I'll be able to get the 200ish I need, due to how difficult its list of achievements are)
Anyway, on to the list of perfected games!

I'll be posting an update on what's been going on with me within the next few days.
Until then, since I've been seeing some of my Facebook friends finally posting about this, I thought I'd share the awesomeness that is:
Babymetal, a fusion of J-Pop and Metal. If your a fan of anime, these amazingly talented girls should easily get your interest.
Give Me Choco!!
Ijime, Dame, Zettai
Doki Doki Morning
I'd also recommend finding footage of 'Onedari Daisakusen'.
They released their first album last month, self titled 'Babymetal' (which you can buy on iTunes), and you should totally check out their "Legends I, D, Z" concerts, which are just an awesome feast for the eyes and ears.

So, I've been delving into writing (as I've said in previous journal), alternating between my personal writing Project, and writing up RWBY OCs.
As far as my writing project is going, its at roughly at 7k words, roughly 13+ separate documents of various word lengths, and my first POV character, who I accidentally gave a storyline just by naming her XD
If you'd like to see some of it, you can see it here. Why Tumblr? Some of you may ask. Because its fairly simple to use, and doesn't require any knowledge to quickly update pages, unlike a proper website (which is where I would like to get it set up, eventually.
I plan on doing some basic art for this (mainly Symbols and whatnot), so you might see me post some TCP related art.
As far as my RWBY OCs are concerned, @Ember encouraged me to join the Fanon wiki, and post them there, so that I'd actually try and develop them, instead of the paragraph I originally had for them.
Which I did, so enjoy.

So, tell me what y'all think :)

Because it seems to be the trend, I'm gonna attempt these resolution thingamabobs.
1) Get Ember out of her situation - I don't care what it takes, I want 2014 to be the year where I see this phrase come from Ember often: 'I had a nice, relaxing day, getting stuff I wanted done', knowing she's happy to be able to do whatever she wants, whenever she wants.
2) Meet Ember in person - Since I'm planning an America trip, I want this to happen so badly. You have no idea how badly I want to just hold her.........
3) America Trip - Hopefully, if my passport arrives in the next few days, I might make RTX. Otherwise, I might just have to settle for visiting a few friends, close to wherever Ember is XD
4) Trying to be less of a dickYeah, not gonna happen. If people say or do things that I strongly disagree with, I'm not gonna stand idly by.
(What? Were you expecting things like 'Getting fit', or 'getting a new job'? Pfffttt, If I'm gonna set a resolution, I'm gonna set believable ones for me)

How is everyone?
I'm feeling much better than when I did when I posted the Hiatus journal, so now I know that the unbearable parts are caused by the toxic environment I work in.
But Since I know I probably won't be able to change that for atleast 6 months, let's see how quickly I fall back into it ($20 I barely last 2 weeks).
My Writing Project is starting to come along, with roughly 4000 words spread out across 5 documents (with roughly 1,500 of those written within the last 2 hours I worked on them O.O).
If any of you are interested in keeping up with it, I'm posting stuff on Tumblr.
(Now, before some of you start insulting Tumblr, I'm using it because its easy/free to set up, and because I can quickly write posts on my phone for it, if I need to. Plus, I like Tumblr, so yeah)
I'm gonna try and start being more active (especially with Chupa stuff, need to do some more creating there XD), so you should start seeing more regular postings from me ^_^
So, without further ado, there are two things I want to say/ask:
1- The Xbone is still the piece of shit I thought it was.
Now, before you start defending it, hear me out, because the Australian Experience (aka, the barely functioning experience) is vastly different to the American one (the supposed awesome experience).
I literally waited 5 days, for a 2.6 gb download, whereas my 360 downloaded roughly 5 gbs of content within 2 days.
The Avatar system has only just recently started working.
Somehow, they managed to go from an easy to use Achievement system which did exactly what we wanted, to a horrible system that forces us out of the game and typically requires you to drill down to figure out what achievement you unlocked (admittedly, the tracking that the system know does, in regards to collection/time played styled achievements is cool, and the 'Challenge' achievements where you can earn in game goodies like extra skins or more XP is a cool concept, which only a few games seem to have a grasp of)
The fact that you can't access your system memory is so stupid.
The Current games available aren't even that fun (Dead Rising, a series I enjoyed for the absurdity and challenge, is now ridiculously easy, in that I could literally save everyone in one playthrough with zero effort :/) or interesting enough to make me want to play them for long periods of time (I actually had to remember I had an Xbone, because I was getting bored on my 360 and wanted to play something different XD)
The whole 'Arcade games are now worth 1000 Points' bs which has effectively broken the worth of achievements atm (seriously, most of these 'not arcade' games barely have more than 20 achievements, and theres barely any thought put into most of them).
So, my old opinion of the Xbone is still valid: Its an overly expensive Blu-Ray player (pretty much the only reason I like the Xbone, the fact it plays Blu-Rays) which is trying too hard to be a useless and outdated Media PC (to which my current out dated Media PC already does a better job, and it isn't even trying).
Seriously, what happened to gaming consoles, focusing on the key element of 'Gaming'? Please, for the love of god, don't waste your money on an Xbone yet.
Now, before you go defending the whole ' they are just trying to get a broader demographic' point of view, I ask you this question: Why bother? The people who want what the Xbox is trying to offer, typically have a PC that'll do a much better job of it, and the rest typically just want to play games.
Why is a GAMING (seriously, I can;t stress this point enough) console, focusing on being everything BUT a GAMING console?
/Xbone rant over
(Sorry, I've been watching a fair amount of Zero Punctuation and Jimquistion, which have only shown that my arguments were indeed valid ones)
2 - How was everyone's Xmas, and what are you guys planning for New Years?
Mine was pretty meh, since the people I'd have loved to spend it with live in Melbourne, Brisbane and America (aka, the Family of my Soul). But atleast I worked most of it, and got Double Time pay rates.
And I have jack shit planned for New Years, mainly because the people I want to celebrate it with are too far away, and I'll be working the day after, for Double Time Rates.
Oh yeah, forgot to say I put my passport application in, and it was accepted, so now I'm just waiting on getting it :D

First piece of news.
I'm taking a sabbatical, from RoosterTeeth and RoosterSpeak.
There's nothing wrong with the site and all you awesome peeps, its just that between work stressing me the hell out, and my social anxiety making me think up outlandish reasons for trivial things, I need time away from people in general. (And as of the 16th of December, the only people I should be dealing with is my Family, and occasional Store Employees, since I plan on taking holiday leave)
If you guys still feel the need to contact me, feel free to use the other sites I'm on. Just know that I'm tired, stressed, and probably gonna be a little snarky Okay, so I'm always a little snarky. I can't help that XD
I'm planning to comeback around January 6th, since thats when my holiday time I've put in for, will be over. So if you guys want to do anything from the 16th of Dec, to the 6th of Han, send me a msg :)
Second piece of news.
I've started up a writing project, to A) be creative in a way I know I have decent skills in, B) to get me in a regular creative mood, and C) to get some ideas out of my head, so I can free up some space XD
I'm calling it the Constant Project Yep, shit name, but my Official Awesome Namer of Things is fast asleep, so I'm stuck with that for now XD .
Its effectively a Science Fantasy Multiverse playground, where writers can add their owns stories, while I just create the universe (since I love creating universes and lore stuff, but kind of suck at adding proper stories to it XD).
I eventually plan on possibly buying a domain for it (once I figure out all the hassles associated with buying a website and such), so its easily accessible to everyone.
If anyone is interested in helping out/joining me on the Project, please feel free to msg me, either on here, Tumblr, or Facebook.

So, if anyone hasn't been able to tell, I've been kind of dormant, for the past 3 weeks.
I had an amazing time at Brisnova (Pics and Journal tomorrow), but with my brain being its usual messed up self, my heads been in a dark place these last few weeks.
My social anxiety is acting up so badly, that I can barely use TeamSpeak, and I'm over analysing what certain friends mean when they say stuff.
Hell, if it wasn't for Ember and Liriana, I'd be feeling a whole lot worse.
Unless the stress from work eases up (which it won't), these next few weeks are gonna be hell for me, coz between my need for some form of social interaction, and my anxiety reacting to ANYTHING that can slightly cause my triggers, I'm just drained mentally and emotionally.
Hope you guy and girls are having a better time than me........

So, as of Pokemon Y, I'm now heavily invested in my 3DS XL, so I was wondering what games you guys would recommend?
I'm a lover of Horror, RPGs, Action and Adventure games, if that helps. (plus your usual Nintendo games, like Mario, Pokemon, Star Fox, Metroid, etc)
