      And another year goes by

      4 weeks ago

      My birthday is coming up and this will be the first one Jason and I have together, the first one my parents are around for in over a decade, and my first one not being single in five years.


      I'd say that's a reason for cake.


      Then again to me waking up in the morning is reason for cake.


      I'll be making the same cake I made for Jason's mom's birthday which I've dubbed my "I wish I were Rocher" cake. My signature chocolate cake, chocolate whipped cream frosting, crushed Ferrero Rochers, topped with toasted hazelnut pieces and drizzled with bittersweet chocolate.


      I'm drooling already. Is it Tuesday yet? :D

      Sneezing and coughing my way into 2016

      1 month ago

      So I've been sick since around 7p.m. New Years Eve. Jack's been happy with it since sick momma means more cuddle time on the couch. It's pretty much just a bad head/chest cold but since I have asthma it's hitting me fairly hard. Coughing fits tend to wipe me out pretty bad. This is not how I planned on starting my year out but I'm just going to roll with it for now since there's not a lot of choice. Meanwhile I'm watching a lot of home improvement shows and wishing I could do a lot of stuff to our house.


      It's also giving me time to sit back and really think about how I spend my free time, the ways I used to be creative but haven't been in a long time, and the things in life I want to accomplish. There's going to be a lot of letting go of things that I do but don't improve me or help me in being who I want to be and in reality wastes a lot of my time as well as working to build up habits that will get me on the road to where I want to be.


      The only constant is change right?

      So long 2015

      1 month ago

      This past year is one I will keep in my heart for a long time. 2015 brought with it a lot of wonderful things for me.


      • I started out the year earning a salary which if nothing else gave me a way to budget because I always knew what I was getting paid. Also kinda made me feel like a professional.
      • I got to attend PAX South and see a lot of my amazing friends one extra time.
      • I worked a tax season where I didn't feel so alone because I had a friend at work who cared about me taking a break every now and then and eating.
      • That same friend became my best friend, then my boyfriend, and now we're living together and planning our future. I never knew love could be this great, sweet, frightening, wonderful, consuming, and this easy. He manages to make every single day a joy for me.
      • Along with the boyfriend I gained a huge family who accepted me into their folds pretty much immediately and I love each and every one of them so damn much.
      • I baked more, which is nice but is also dangerous as I've created a cake that's just so damn good I could eat the entire thing myself.
      • I managed to go to two of the three weddings I planned on going to and celebrate my friends getting hitched with Jason by my side and more than willing to make googly eyes with me.
      • I stopped being all alone out here in Oklahoma, not just because of Jason and his family but also because my parents made the plunge and moved out here in July. I HAVE MY MOM AND DAD!
      • I worked RTX for the second year in a row, this time as a Team Lead in the brand spanking new Autographs department with an awesome, amazing, fantastic, and stupendous group of Guardians as my team.
      • Took my first road trip/vacation with Jason and stayed in the historic district of Austin just the two of us which was pretty damn nice.
      • In August I met Jack-Jack, Jason's rat terrier and fell in love with a seven pound, nine year old bundle of cuddles and love. He has decided that I'm his human now and will only cuddle with me.
      • I now have a cat too! Jason has an outdoor cat who I named Tucker and who will now and then jump in my lap and purr for a while.
      • In October after five years I left managing a CPA firm and took at job at a pharmaceutical research company as a quality assurance associate. The hours are way better, I don't have a tax season looming next month, the benefits are better, and I get to work with a lot of family.
      • I also have started the journey to finally getting braces, which would be on now except I pushed it back to enjoy the holidays and EAT ALL THE THINGS.
      • At the end of November I turned in my keys and officially moved out of my apartment and in with Jason so I now live in a house with a backyard which is exactly what I said it would take for me to move. Side note: NEVER MOVING AGAIN!
      • I spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with family. A lot of family. It was overwhelming and exhausted little introvert me. And I loved every moment of it.
      • And tonight? Tonight I get to relax on the couch with the love of my life playing Diablo III together with our dogs around us until we look up, realize the time, say a quick happy new year, and go to bed.

      Not everything in 2015 was perfect, but I'm choosing to take the good and hold on to it instead. I'm sure I've missed a highlight or two but that's life. Next year will bring lots of house repairs/remodeling, at least one trip I hope, but most importantly a lot of love, laughter, and time spent with the people who have made my life, from the first RTX I attended to now, so much richer.


      If I'm lucky I'll also read more, relax more, take better care of myself, have the time to find beauty every day, and find my creative side again.


      Happy New Year to my RT Family.

      The Blood Oath

      1 month ago

      Hey folks!

      So a few years ago my World of Warcraft guild fizzled out. I went off to culinary school while working full time, the Star Wars MMO came out, and a lot of our core members ran off to live life (our GM even got himself a wife!) in one form or another. Since that time our guild was disbanded and reformed and now we're wanting to get back to playing and casually raiding together. Someone decided to put me in charge (I know right?) so I've been working on getting our guild website up a running again and we've all been working on recruitment.

      What are we looking for? Well...everything really. The only requirements are 18+ and drama free. Oh and playing on the Horde side, cause Lok'tar Ogar baby. If you're looking for hard core raiding or only care about the latest greatest piece of gear this won't be the place for you, a lot of us have families and small children (which provides almost endless entertaining stories) so we're not looking to raid till the wee hours of the night four nights a week or fight over who gets what drop.

      So if you play WoW, want to hang out/raid/level/achievement hunt/have fun/revisit old content stuff check out our website and put in an application or find me in game on Argent Dawn! My main is Shadowsflame, lvl 92 (I'm working in it...) Tauren druid. Just keep in mind, we're not looking to be HARD CORE, we're just looking to have fun. And this community is full of some of the most fun people around.

      <3

      Thank you

      A few years ago I participated in Extra Life and managed to hit my goal of raising funds for one of the children's hospitals here in Oklahoma City. Life since then has been crazy/hectic/and changing on me and even though I've wanted to I haven't managed to do Extra Life again.

      I do still try to contribute to other charities who raise funds for children out there (love you guys at SideQuest) when I can.

      This past week the work all you wonderful people do has managed to hit close to home for me. My mentor and friend Chef Patrick and his wife Becky found out last week that their two year old son Alistair had a mass about the size of a small lime in his brain. Today, right now actually, he is in surgery to have the mass removed. Jason and I visited them last night and I stopped by durning lunch today to try and support as well as possible. I held Alistair when he was only a few hours old and as he laid in my arms he kept making the same noise as The Predator. He's had a piece of my heart ever since. I know my thoughts are jumbled up and I don't mind. But what I do want to say to you, yes you. The person asking for donations, doing game marathons, streaming to raise money, creating awesome works to donate to charities working to raise funds, bidding on charity auction items, or giving a donation. You right there.

      Thank you. Thank you so damn much.

      Going to see Alistair and seeing the wonderful facility they have at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical, the cart of toys and coloring books, the staff who go above and beyond, and hearing how thankful his parents are that if this had to happen at least he is where he is and being well taken care of, it all makes me so fucking thankful for each and everyone of you who take time out of your lives and money out of your wallets to help hospitals like the one Alistair is in make an extremely difficult time slightly easier. To make them smile and laugh in the middle of such hard times.

      Thank you. From the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul. Words cannot adequately describe how much what each and every one of you does means to me.

      Hi Shadows,

      I've been catching up on all the RTX videos to see what was going on while we carried off the "best Signatures sessions EVAH" and I saw the RT iife video where Gavin is pouring maple syrup in his PA's pockets,https://youtu.be/b0budj3RI_E .

      To my surprise, when the camera pans I see my favorite Team Lead standing there with Barb in the same state of shock and bemusement. So now we know what really went on in those important meetings (and why talent is late for signings)!

      Thanks for not trying the syrup trick out on Team Foxtrot.

      Hey, I recognize that tattoo. Best part of being an RTX Guardian working registration: getting to see everybody at RTX. Worst part: not having time to say hi to the interesting looking people. I'm glad the RT Community interview went up, it let me know who you were so I could get in a late hello.
