So... it's been a while.
*sigh* Where do I begin?
Well... might as well start with the good:
RTX London happened! (though at the time of writing this it's already been a week). I was amazed walking amongst all the fans, the merchandise and the different attractions. I can honestly say that, being there to see these internet celebraties, the people I've been virtually growing up with for a decade, was definately the greatest experience for me this year (queues were very british and long)!
Also, I have to mention meeting Chris and Aaron. In addition to getting a signing, they also kickstarted my Twitter account. Long story short: I used to only use Twitter to occasionally see what famous celebs were saying, never once tweeting for myself. I wanted a solid first tweet, so I figured "Why not two fine gentlemen from RT"?. So yeah, my Twitter story has begun. You can follow me here if you want to: https://twitter.com/TheVarlina....
Lastly, I met The Legend... Jeremy Dooley. Sure, RTX was incredible! It's an event that I absolutely want to experience again in my lifetime. But getting a picture with Lil' J, as the sun sets, on the final day, was the best way RTX could've ended!
In other news, I made myself a sweet new logo (hope you like it), and I'll hopefully be able to start Twitch streaming later this week! If you'd like to see how bad I am, you can check me out here: https://www.twitch.tv/varlinat...
Now the bad:
I'm no longer a team leader at ODEON TW (I quit), which is fine considering every shitty decision that took place over the past 3 years. What had seemed like a dream job back in 2014 had turned into a waking nightmare! While I am glad to be shot of that place, I find myself struggling to get a decent replacement job. It's frustrating when I know my skills/strengths, but am unable to put them towards generating income. I don't want to dwell too much on this year as far as work goes, I'll simply say: I've managed. I'm trying some new things which could be enjoyable career-wise (photography/editing/filming/greenscreen) so, we'll see how that goes.
All of that aside, that's not why I'm here writing this...
The truth is: I need to be a better member of this community.
This company, all its divisions, and all of the crew that produce some of the best content for internet daily, ultimately wouldn't be where it is today, if it weren't for all the fans. AH Community Videos, Artists, Extra Life Donaters, Animators... the list goes on and on. The point is WE are Rooster Teeth, and I fully intend to increase my support for everyone involved!
I started following RT in 2008 (around the time when RvB Season 6 was coming out). From that start date, I've watched literally everything this company has to offer! (except Heroes and Halfwits - that series is long AF). I owe it to myself AND Rooster Teeth to contribute, support and make friends within the community.
So, from this moment, I'm going to be a productive member on this site.
Next update will probably be in a month or so.
Catch ya, later!
P.S. I know this was like a book and a half to get through, but I felt it was necessary. If you read the whole thing, you're awesome and I thank you ♥ From now on, shorter and more frequent updates (unless something major comes up) I promise!
P.P.S. No more Mass Effect 3 talk (Indoctrination Theory = Bollocks)
