      This year there are a lot of new folks on the Signatures Team! People new to being a Guardian and those who have been a Guardian before but are new to our area.


      Have a question about last year? Ask it here!


      All my veterans from last year feel free to weight in, but all questions regarding this coming RTX will be handled by your's truly.

      The typical "Introduce yourself" thread

      in Forums > The typical "Introduce yourself" thread | Follow this topic

      I'll start us off:


      Hi everyone, my name is Iris aka "ShadowsFlame" and I'll be coming to RTX for the fifth time this year. This will be my third year as a Guardian, and my second year as the Team Lead of the Signature Team. I'm from Oklahoma City and live with my darling Jason, our dogs, fish, and cat.


      I love video games, Doctor Who, Firefly, growing plants, taking pictures, reading, and SPREADSHEETS.


      I'm beyond thrilled to be leading this team again and to welcome back nearly every person from last year (we're missing a few who didn't apply to be Guardians this year) along with all our new members.

      One day early...

      1 month ago

      I'm posting this today for tomorrow because I plan on spending all day tomorrow focusing 100% on celebrating.


      My darling @HuntedJedi


      Tomorrow, April 22nd, 2016 will be our first anniversary. Tomorrow marks one year since my co-worker who had become my best friend took the leap of faith and love with me. Last April we went on an innocent night out to have a meal and go see a meteor shower and it turned into our first date. We've been together ever since and I can't imagine a world where the past year didn't have you by my side every single day. This year has been filled with happiness and sadness, triumphs and frustrations, stupid mistakes and random blessings, and through it all I've known that you are there for me, with me, supporting me, cheering for me, and letting me do the same for you even when you tried to be all manly and say you didn't need it.


      In twelve months we've taken a road trip, you survived meeting my friends, I survived meeting your family, moved in together, started fixing up our house, spent the holidays with each other's family, been caretakers to each other while ill, celebrated our birthdays and our love all while you patiently let me fill our home and lives with dogs, fish, plants and books. You see me being my crazy, mixed up, gamer, random hobby having, unruly morning hair self and love every part of me. I see you being your hyper focused, tinkering, gamer, car stuff loving, could give lessons to Garfield about hating mornings of any kind, self and (even if the car part bores me to tears) I love every facet of you.


      Just seeing your face causes a smile to break out on mine and a song to start in my heart...among other reactions ;)


      My world has shifted and changed into a happier place where I have someone to share all the hardships and joy in life with and is now a greater place than I ever imagined.


      I can't wait to see what the rest of our life together brings. I love you Jason.


      Always and forever,


      Your Staypuff

      So @HuntedJedi and I did a thing.


      We've been talking for a while now about starting up our own business doing bookkeeping and eventually tax returns because we both have a background in the accounting field and enjoy crunching numbers. Jason is a tax guy and I'm a bookkeeping gal so it seemed like a natural path for us to take once we no longer worked at a CPA firm. After a bit of brainstorming we decided on being a remote based bookkeeping service with a focus on freelancers and folks in the gaming/entertainment industry who need/want someone else to worry about keeping track of expenses, invoices, etc.


      I spent some time working on our website and finally got it finished (though I'm sure I'll be making changes as we progress and grow), ordered business cards, and signed us up for the secure file exchange service we used back at our old CPA firm. Over the next year we'll be working on getting our Enrolled Agent designations to provide tax services for the 2016 tax season as well, but in the meantime we can get your books organized and balanced.


      As of March 31, 2016 we're open for business.

      And another year goes by

      4 months 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

      4 months 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

      4 months 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.


      <3 Shadows

We're not looking to make anything off them so we're selling them at cost: $75 each. If you need a badge or two just send me a message!

  • About Me

    Originally from Brooklyn, NY I've made Oklahoma my home for the past 10 years. Happily the lucky other half of @HuntedJedi and co-owner of our remote bookkeeping business. We have our hands full with a puppy pack, an always starving fluffy cat, fish, plants, and projects galore. I also bake, work as a Guardian for RTX and help run the RT Oklahoma Community group.

    Please understand that I don't add someone as a friend unless I've met and spoken with them. Random friend requests make me scream "STRANGER DANGER!" and run away.

      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.
