      Jean110 RTMI's Red Shirt

      So I've had a lot of time to do a lot of thinking lately. Between the deaths of every grandparent I've ever known and the stress of helping mom with surgeries, rehab, paying my tuition off and preparing to start college again in the fall, there's been a lot to think about and deal with. One thought that continuously crops up is that I'm not always happy in my current state. I'm content to live my life the way I've been living it but I need to make a change.


      That change starts with a few decisions:


      -Lose 225lbs: I'm tired of being tired, fat, lazy, and generally disgusting to look at. I'm 450 lbs and almost 27 years old. If I don't make a change now, I don't think I ever will. I need this change more than most things in my life. I've already made this decision. It was the easiest to make and it will honestly be the hardest to accomplish, given the time necessary to accomplish this goal.


      -Write More: Another easy decision that I've gotten away from in the past two years. Writing was always therapeutic and I've done less and less of it, blaming it on muse and motivation. Bullshit. I was lazy and didn't want to put my mind to work. So I'm going back to something I love and I'm not going to stop because it will honestly help me, even if I'm writing trashy fan fiction or forever unpublished original works.


      -Resign as RT Michigan Admin: This decision was a bit harder. I love this community and the people, but I've failed to uphold the promise I made when I first signed on as an admin. At first I did well, I addressed concerns and did what I could for the betterment of the group. Unfortunately I lost my path sometime last year and I've never found my way back. You deserve better than me. I'll still be a part of the community, still attend events and meet ups and game nights, but I'm better as just another friendly neighbor than a community leader.


      -Interact More: I'm a lonely son of a bitch, that happens when all of your friends either have already moved away or are at the very least an hour drive away. Social media is a wonderful tool and I need to use it more effectively. I need to reinforce what friendships I've made and stop being such a dour mother fucker. Also, snail mail! I love getting letters and I'd like to keep that up. In fact I have an unfinished one on my table waiting for me that I really need to finish. Sorry Penny! Mailing by Monday!


      -Take Time for Myself: We get involved with others so often we forget to take time for ourselves. In my case I've let my grief, stress, mild depression, and other issues get the better of me, both in my social interactions with others and in finding true happiness and contentment within myself. I need to do these things for me, better myself so that I can be happier, feel more alive. I need this. I want this. I'm going to be better.


      ...at least, that's what I keep trying to tell myself.


      Keep moving forward.


      It's what I need to do, it's what I want to do, and it's what I'm going to do. I'm not sorry for that. I hope you can understand.


      Thanks for listening

      Another get together type deal that has been mentioned a few times at mini and main events. I make this a separate topic from Couch Co-op mainly because this is a different style of gameplay. Plus it'd be hard trying to talk around a few different ideas all thrown into one topic but, there you go! I know I'd like to try this out whether we get together and end friendships with games like Risk and Monopoly, or settle into some crazy shenanigans with DnD and a little too much liquor. Interested? We're looking for suggestions, interested persons, and of course, dates that might be manageable for people. What do you think? Let me know!

      This idea has been brought up to me a few times and the more I hear about it the more I want to go through with it. Basically some of us get together at someone's house, set up some games where we can play couch co-op, like Worms, Cloudberry Kingdom and others, and just have a blast with it. Who knows, we may even stream it! I know I'm available to host it, and I believe some others said they would be interested but I don't want to name names in case I royally screw up somehow. So for now, who's interested and when should we have a good test run?

    • I Remember

      8 months ago

      Jean110 RTMI's Red Shirt

      I remember a time when I was far more active in this community than I have been.

      I remember a time when I worked my way through college courses like they were skittles and managed to keep up with everything.

      I remember a time when my family loved and cared for one another, when it was the most important thing in the world.

      I remember a time when stress pushed me to isolate myself from everything I cared about.

      I remember a time when this community brought me out of my shell and showed me there's hope for me yet.

      And I remember a time when my family was whole.

      This November has not been easy in any sense of the word. Stress has ruled my life practically dilly since August and is month finally took its deadly toll. On November 9th my grandmother passed away. She was a kind, compassionate woman that fussed over us in the smallest but most meaningful ways. She never badgered, but she always made sure we were taken care of. In truth that grandmother died some years ago to Alzheimer's, and only now did we finally lose what was left of the treasure she was to our family. On Novermber 14th I sat with my grandfather who at the time was in ICU at the hospital so he could listen into the funeral as best we could manage. My heart cracked that day, and while I felt a deep a he inside I felt a far more insidious fear waiting for me.

      So on November 20th my fear became reality, and my grandpa was taken away from me. My grandfather had slowly gotten better after my grandma passed away, only to finally let himself go. I spoke with him in private so many times before then, admitted things aloud to him that I never had before. He is my Old Man, my dad, my father, the man that raised me into who I am with my grandma and mother at his side. I told him I learned how to be who I am because of him. I told him that I would be honored to have a life so full, so devoted, so wonderful as his. Today I had to say goodbye for the very last time.

      At 11:43 this morning, November 28th, I felt the world empty of the warmth I had known since I was a child.

      One of my first memories was my Old Man's laughter as he handed me a strawberry dum dum sucker. One of my favorite memories is of him hugging me the first weekend he visited my mom as the divorce started and told me I was free to be whoever I wanted to be, free of anything that's kept me locked away from a world that I wanted to explore, that he had seen so much of. Another of my favorite memories is him taking me to dinner and buying me a pan of the best cornbread I've ever had afterwards. My grandfather taught me so much, became so much for me, and now he's gone.

      In three of the longest weeks of my life, in just three simple weeks, I lost some of the greatest people I have ever known. I lost my laughing Old Man, my constantly cold grandmother, and now I'm left wondering what else might be taken from me? I live in fear of the day another member of my family dies.

      ...But someone reminded me I could also live in hope that their influence on me will change the world, that their memory lives on in me. My mom is the strongest, bravest woman I've ever met and she has always been there for me, I hope she always will be.

      I would like to thank @Miles for reminding me it's ok to laugh and tell stories. Your tweets this morning about your grandma allowed me to smile again and that is something not easily achieved lately. So thank you.

      @instantjj and @JRok you two have been so supportive and I can't thank you enough. If you ever need anything just let me know alright? I really appreciate your support these past weeks and I don't think I could have gotten through without it. This community has given me some amazing friends and I hope I can be just as awesome in return someday. Random events coming up? Last minute shenanigans for the heck of it? I'm in! Hell, I may even host a New Years gathering if things work out.

      Take care everyone. Treasure your loved ones, your memories, and everything you love, because it really can be taken from you so very easily. Stay safe, stay happy, stay loved.

      See you soon kids!

      Long time no journal. Won't bother with the posting more often, I know better. Glad to see everyone having a great time. We've had so many great events with RT Michigan that I'm really looking forward to more. You've been a great community and even better friends and i hope to continue that trend.

      My life has been a whirlwind with lots of... family trouble to go around. Needless to say worry has been my default mode when I'm not working.

      Anyways, happier times! Go check out RT Michigan's latest news to join us for some scrumptious mongolian grilling!

    • Hanging out

      1 year ago

      Jean110 RTMI's Red Shirt

      That's pretty much all I've been doing for a while when I'm not taking care of college stuff. I know I've been quiet and I haven't been social, I apologize.

      If people are interested I'm willing to let folks drop by my house on the 25th of April from 5pm onward. It's a tad last minute notice for some, I know, but college took up a ton of my time recently so I've been a bit distracted from my social life, or lack thereof. Anyone is welcome to come over and I will be providing basic food(pizza and pop) and entertainment(CAH Werewolves etc) for everyone to enjoy. People are more than welcome to bring friends and other forms of entertainment. I don't have much booze here at my house, so if you'd like to bring over some of your booze it would be most welcome. Otherwise I'm always willing to travel to hang out with everyone if people have better places to hang out.

      If you lot are interested in hanging at my place (im in Port Huron) on April 25th send me a PM for the address.

    • Goodbye 2014! Hello 2015!

      1 year ago

      Jean110 RTMI's Red Shirt

      Been a while since I made my last journal but life happens sometimes and you just have to run with the bulls.

      2014 was a fantastic year for starting friendships and meeting new people. RT Michigan made this a reality for me, and being an admin of it now has only made that all the more important.

      2014 also was a fairly ok year as far as health goes. I'm on a few more medications now than when I started, but I have lost some pounds here and there. Not as much as I'd like, but some.

      2014 was a year of self-discovery in the sense that I began to look forward to a medical career, one based in the realm of Communication Disorders. It's a long road ahead of me, but my mother, who I'll be stuck living with for the duration of my learning, has been supportive and understanding.

      What I hope for 2015 is along those same three lines.

      In 2015 I hope to expand on my relationships. I want to be the shoulder to cry on, the semi-wise voice that gives advice when someone needs it, and be able to ask them to do the same for me. Social media is a great tool for this, I just have to use it better than I have been.

      In 2015 I want to lo- Get in Better Shape. Thank you @Dimono for putting a positive spin on this idea/resolution. I've been talking about getting healthier for a while now and it's time I take it seriously. I'm already a few steps up the ladder to getting in better shape, it's time I take a few more.

      In 2015 I hope to discover in myself more of the passion that others have for their hobbies and projects. I used to have such a fire inside me, but cynicism and not so positive thoughts dimmed the lights a bit. I want to find my passions again, and participate in any projects I think I might be helpful in.

      Yeah, that's about it. A quick thanks to @LoZelda, @instantjj, @jeysicah, @pennypanda, @LillyBugLove, @JRok, @Dice and so, so many others for being great friends this year. Maybe next year I'll buy you all a drink to celebrate.

      To 2015, and beyond!

      So I've been talking with a few people and we've been thinking over the idea of getting together sometime over the holidays to hang out and have fun. Now while I know some people have family obligations, cool vacations and the like, I believe this is still something we can do to have fun and be a community. So without further ado, here are the details of what we've sort of been planning this past week.

      Where? Granite City Restaurant in Troy!
      When? Saturday the 27th of December 2014 at 4p.m.
      Who's Coming? Well, we have a list just to keep track of that. These are the people I know can come as of their latest update.
      Jean
      Penny
      Cam
      Jeremy
      Eric
      Joe (sugeon)
      Alec
      Ashley
      Keith
      Jessica
      Justin

      Anyone and everyone is welcome to this! It will be a joy to hang out with everyone again and I'm sure we'll all have a fantastic time. If you need a ride, I am willing to grab some passengers here and there. Please post here if you can come and/or if you need a ride. This may become a monthly thing if it's successful, like for RT community days, so keep an eye out for more news!

    • 7 Things you may not know about me.

      1 year ago

      Jean110 RTMI's Red Shirt

      Yeah I got tagged by a few folks. So in light of that I will go ahead and try to think up 7 things you don't know about me... which is actually kinda hard since I share quite a bit of myself here.

      So let's get to it!

      1. I sleep on my living-room couch 90% of the time. It's a habit I picked up over the years of hating being shut away from where everyone else was and from the years I was "kicked out" of my room at the apartment because I snored weirdly and fell asleep to loud movies. Aside from habit though, part of me likes having cushion on two sides of my body at once. Subconscious cry for someone to share my bed with? Who knows?! But I sleep on the couch anyways. The couch I currently use has been hurt by me of course, many of the support springs have snapped due to my weight and over-use of them. So if you ever visit, sit in the armchairs or the speckled couch, not the dark one.

      2. I have about a dozen pictures and posters that I haven't picked up frames for or hung up in general. I would like to hang them up but laziness persists and they'll keep safe where I have them. More than likely once I have my own place or get tired of sleeping on a fucked up couch I'll put up some scenery in my room that I'll end up sleeping in.

      3. I've recently been looking into gathering some collectibles. Bishoujo statues of various heroes and villains attract me, and any ship models from sci-fi/fantasy settings would be awesome as well. Would love to get my hands on some statues of Poison Ivy, Tali, Garrus and a whole boatload of other awesome characters. Unfortunately my collection is a collection of coins and pins and a few other small collectibles and not statues thus far. The reason? Money. Go figure, right?

      4. I can no longer stand what would pass for "fast food". KFC, Subway and occasionally Taco Bell are about all I can stand these days. Restaurants like applebees and the like are still OK, but anything remotely close to junk/fast food I can barely stomach anymore.

      5. Never call me John or Luke. Jean(Gene) is far preferable to either of those names. I don't know what it is but being called John or Luke sets me off and annoys me to no end. Actually no, it angers me, and it's a quick way to get on my shit-list if the behavior persists. Jean(Gene) or Jean(as in my actual name Jean-Luc, pronounced with french accents and a rolling J/zh sound that you find in words like measure) are what I like to hear most often. If you have a nickname for me, make sure I'm alright with it. I've had some doozies backfire a few times in the past and it's not pleasant for anyone.

      6. I mentioned this in a tweets with SailorTweek earlier today, but it merits saying here. I am deathly afraid of being forgotten, ignored, unwanted. avoided and everything in-between. I have friendship issues, it's true. I do find it hard to connect with others, and when I feel I am the only one trying to contribute to a conversation or to a relationship I can't help but get the idea that, hey, I'm not wanted, I'm not good enough or worth someone's time. Because of that I'll stop talking, stop supporting people in their endeavors, possibly even cut off communications altogether if I feel it won't affect my other social partners, groups and contexts. Part of the reason I write is in the hopes that while I may be forgotten as a person, as a personality in someone's life, my writing might persist and in a way the author in me, my ideas, will be remembered long after I am gone.

      7. I adore the experience of reading a book. Yes, I know, that's something you do know, but what you may not know is that I hate reading digital novels and the like. Give me a paperback or hardcover book any day of the week. The feel and smell of paper. The tactile sensation that comes with every turn of a page or setting it down to let a certain moment or idea sink in truly immerses me into the worlds that books transport me to. I leave everything I've ever learned, every stressful thought or outside motive on the table next to me the moment I pick up a book and begin to sink into the depths of its pages. It's a liberating experience, and I don't see why more people don't enjoy the activity or the actual books themselves. Next time you're at a book store, look for Chronicles of the Black Company. I can't recommend it enough and I will continue to recommend it until I can talk to others about it in depth.

      Yup that's it. Hope you all learned a thing or two about me.

      I would tag people but I'm too lazy. So instead I'll just say if you read this you have been tagged. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

        It's coming slowly. Been in a bit of a rut the past few days and last week, what with back issues and other things. I'll get to work on it very shortly. Definitely before the school year approaches.

        Over there eh? Not bad but not the greatest either heh. Well flint's nice enough in some areas, if dangerous, and a bit south of where you are. I unfortunately have constant days off this week, have to commute to sterling heights this week and maybe next week for some work that I'm doing for my mother.

        Not too bad actually, just hanging out in my house because I can't go anywhere at the moment. I don't mind being home when i have a way out but uhh yeah, hate being stuck at home without transportation. I'm from Port Huron though, so it's not all bad, I'm near the lake and got a great view just three blocks down.

        Where are you from? And how's it going?

    • CalPal

      4 years ago

      Howdy, I'm trying to play a game with a bunch of other RTers. It's a legit fun game, it'll be a while to explain, but the rules are easy to follow and, if you like the game enough, you can even write up your own stories. However, the game REALLY needs one person to join in and participate with other people, should you have the spare time. I thought I'd ask because I'm actually kinda desperate to get this game working.

      Here's the link for the group. If you're interested, join up. I can promise it's fun times.

        Yeah, they like to run their traps at night the most, little visibility even with lights and all. Just gotta know where to look. I've got the route to flint down pretty well but to detroit its different. Those damn detroit cops looooove to catch speeders.

      I feel it a bit unfair that I read and critiqued your work with no indication of my own style or shortcomings. I've recently posted the first chapter of WIP at the request of one of my friends, and wonder if you feel so inclined to tackle a wall of text?

      It is a friends only entry but I don't see any indication that we wouldn't get along.

        One of my editing phases is going through with a thesaurus and finding the proper word to fix each sentence. I enjoy it more then I should however and it often results in me adding repetitive perspectives for the same event. Which in turn calls for another turn at editing the pace and then working through to fix the flow.

        Long process but I am more then a bit obsessed with perfection. smiley0.gif
        If I could ask, just for the sake of easing the editing process, where there any words that really stood out as over used?
        I know one of my pet words are ferment, and... yah I love that word. smiley6.gif

        In the time I've had to read it I've only gotten into a few of the comments, But I must say you weave a well paced story, one with a definitely unique spin. The connection between character, ship, and the world are very intriguing. Some words are repetitive here and there, but otherwise you write very well. If you are interested in writing for fun and enjoy Star Wars fan fiction/role playing, let me know and I'll share the link to the site I primarily write on. My writing there is not of the same quality work as my book, but sometimes inspiration can strike.

        Well not much to say really. My name's Jean-Luc, I'm a 22 year old student still living with my mother, because a substitute teachers money isn't viable or steady eough to support myself and student loans, I'm looking for a secondary education degree and I'm an aspiring author. I've got some work in my kournal a few entries back if you want to take a gander. Not for the faint of heart though, so fair warning its sorta nsfw I suppose but not too much.

        I'm actually with my grandfather at the moment, just broke his hip yesterday so I'm staying with him for most of today.

    • puckrox

      8 years ago

      Yeah, I hear you. I've never been in a real relationship (unless you count my "engagement" during the first and second grade), I've never been on a second date, never had a boy ask me out, and never been kissed. Hurray for my loveless love life! ...only not... Bah, the guy that I'm crushing on right now goes to college in Ohio, which is so far away and I doubt I could ever do a long distance relationship. Life sucks. smiley4.gif

    • puckrox

      8 years ago

      Yeah, well, I can tell you that none of my real crushes these past few years have been strongly based off of appearance. I had a huge crush on one of my best friends for the longest time, and he's not what society would define as "handsome". But he's the most hilarious person I know and he's always there for me, and I think that the latter one is the most important. The guy I like right now isn't the most handsomest guy either (kind of cute in a nerdy way), but I like him because he's super sweet and so kind.

      So yeah. Sorry for telling you, like, my whole romantic history (which is nonexistent, really).

    • puckrox

      8 years ago

      I think that the word "ugly" is in the eye of the beholder. Sure, you don't look like Brad Pitt, but I don't look like Jessica Alba. Ugly, to me, doesn't really exist. I believe everyone has at least one or two attractive qualities, whether it's their eyes, smile, hair, hands, or even ankles. But I don't really look for that stuff anymore. I'm at a point in my life where I've started seeing people completely for who they are on the inside, not the outside. It sounds cheesy but I've known too many people who judge others based on their appearance, which is just wrong.

      So I don't know if that answered your current statement... but I hope so! smiley1.gif
