      Life Update- RTX 2016 Edition

      5 months ago

      Hey guys! It's been a while since I have interacted on this website, so....time for an update journal.


      Relationship Status: Single Again

      A lot has gone down in the past couple of months - some great, some good and some "meh" events, but nothing bad. Life, in that short and quick timespan, has taught me a few important lessons about myself. Here is a brief synopsis:


      As many of you know, soon after returning from RTX, I began dating my best friend's sister. I thought we were meant for each other from the start. Things were at their greatest when we went to Austin for the Lazer Team Premiere (which was awesome, more later), but the things declined afterwards. I knew something was amiss in our relationship, but I didn't want to break up right there and then, I wanted to work on it. Relationships take work, after all. Despite my attempts to fixing it - the root of the problem was a lack of communication - things just never got better. We broke up over two weeks ago, right before Halloween. I wish things had gone better, but by the end of it, I just wanted to move on with my life.


      Tl;dr: My girlfriend and I broke up. I'm fine. I've moved on already. If you want more details, message me and I might talk to you about it. I'm now back on the market. Ladies... ;P


      Lazer Team Premiere

      At the end of September, I got the pleasure of returning to Austin to go see the premiere of Rooster Teeth's feature-length film, Lazer Team. I had fun down in Austin. It gave me the chance to see old friends again (@Miles, @LoZelda, @Newbs and more), meet new people (@micaburton), visit Stage 5 again, and see Lazer Team. That movie was awesome, not the greatest movie in the world, but pretty damn hilarious. The RT Community will love it and I'm confident more people outside our group will enjoy it as well.


      I Got A Jerb

      One of the few positive things that came out my past relationship, I was convinced to go looking for a real job. I had tried before a year earlier, but no one was biting. This time, my ex and I went job hunting together. I think I put my name out to at least 12 employers and got called back by all of them within, most within a day. I am now working two jobs, a seasonal GA at GameStop and a host at a famous local pizza joint, Bearno's Pizza. Good news! I enjoy working at both places. My coworkers are fun and easy to get along with and my bosses are cool and understanding. Bad News: I will have less time to enjoy my recreational activities including Twitch modding, gaming and interacting on RT stuff, not by much, but it still will be noticeable. So, YAY for making some money!


      Extra Life and Other Charity Related Things

      How many of you got a chance to participate in Extra Life this year? Unfortunately, I didn't. I had work on Game Day, but I still got a chance to make an impact by donating to some of my favorite people. Haven't donated yet, but wish you had? You're in luck! Extra Life goes until the end of the year! If you want to watch and Extra Life-related stream, you're still in luck! My good friend Jackie, aka @kriss, is having an Extra Life stream this weekend over at her Twitch channel: www.twitch.tv/geekyfriedrice. She still hasn't reached her goal of $1500 yet, so why don't you lend her your support here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=don...


      On the subject of charity streams, I will be participating in the Snow Kids Stream Shenanigans set up by the awesome @Audrey. I, along with several other streamers, will be streaming in a 24 hour span to raise money for Children With Hair Loss. I will be going live at 1 pm EST on Saturday, December 12th, on my Twitch channel. I have finally decided what the theme will be for my time slot: the thing that will be on everybody's mind during that month....no not Christmas...Star Wars. I am going to be playing few Star Wars games for your entertainment. Haven't finalized the games yet, but I will let you know as soon as I do! Another thing that will be exciting for my time slot is the giveaway prize that I have lined up for you. I will be giving away my unopened copy of my Fallout 4: Pip Boy Edition. I haven't decided on the guidelines for that giveaway, but I will certainly envy whoever gets it. If you want more info on the stream, you can find out more from @Audrey and her post here: http://www.roosterteeth.com/post/51180620


      In order to get ready for the Snow Kids Stream Shenanigans, I will be streaming a few times over the course of the next month. In these streams, I will be playing some SOMA, Fallout 4 and Halo 5. When it comes to SOMA, I will be joined by a special guest, my twin sister! This will be the second time that she has been included in my RT shenanigans. The first time being on the Guardian Podcast back in 2014. Hopefully, you guys can come and check it out. I will release stream dates as soon I get things lined up.


      RTX HYPETRAIN IS MOVING AGAIN!

      If you guys have been keeping tabs with Rooster Teeth today on social media or the community site, Bethany just dropped some AMAZING news today! RTX 2016 has been scheduled for July 1st - 3rd next year and they will be pairing with ScrewAttack's SGC to bring us one big awesome convention. So big that we will be taking over the ENTIRE Austin Convention Center as well as space at the Hilton and the JW Marriott downtown. HOLY BEJEEZUS!!!


      In tandem with the street date for RTX 2016, they also happened to release the Guardian Application street date. You can sign up to be one of the few and proud volunteers on November 16th. Check the RTX Event website on that day for the application and more info. I am so excited for this! I can't wait to sign up and hopefully be back with my fellow Guardians.


      Are you knew to the Guardian process or need a refresher and some good advice about the subject? I would suggest taking a look at @Newbs's journal here. Also, if there are any questions that you need answered about the Guardian, I would HIGHLY suggest sending a quick message to either @SailorTweek or @sirNARVY, our Head Guardians. I can't wait to see who gets picked this year and which team they get assigned to.


      Well...that pretty much wraps up all I have to say. How have you guys been? I hope everything has been going well!

      Birfmas Shenanigans!

      7 months ago

      Hey everyone! Today is my birthday and I have a bunch of shenanigans happening throughout the day. My lovely girlfriend asked what I would like to do tonight after our dinner and decided on the one thing I love to do most: hang out with my friends on the Internet! To do that, I will be streaming Until Dawn again, since that was a blast the last time that I did it. I will be going live around the same time as last week, 10pm EDT, on my Twitch channel: http://www.twitch.tv/jordanthetwit12. Be ready for some more choice-based horror shenanigans! Ok I will stop saying shenanigans....45751-tumblrmcvay6d7Lb1r1ukqvo1r1500-YsZ

      ...Shenanigans! Damn it!

      A Brief Return to Streaming

      8 months ago

      It's not very often that I get some time to stream, but if I do I want it to be either a really entertaining one or for charity. Tomorrow is a special occasion. My very special lady friend Tatum is free and wants to join me as I play the new PS4 exclusive horror game, Until Dawn. So, I figured that this would be a great opportunity for some hilarious reactions as we play through the game for the very first time. So, if you will, please join Tatum and myself tomorrow night around 10pm EDT on my Twitch channel, http://www.twitch.tv/jordanthetwit12, for some awesome times. We will be going live as soon as @LoZelda gets done with her exciting Tales from the Borderlands stream, which starts around 7:30 EDT here: http://www.twitch.tv/rt_lozelda. Hopefully I'll get to see you guys tomorrow in the Twitch chat!

      I Am The Bone Of My Sword...

      8 months ago

      If you haven't read my last update journal, I had mentioned that I was working on my cosplay for the character Archer from the popular anime Fate/stay night. It has always been a secret fantasy of mine to try my hand at cosplaying. I have been working tirelessly since February to make this dream become a reality. From losing 15 extra pounds of weight to crafting the costume itself, it has been one of the most arduous feats I have ever attempted. Now, I am proud to say that my project is 100% complete. It isn't perfect, but it is the best I can do with resources I was given. Even with its imperfections, I am still very proud of the final product. But I won't keep you waiting any longer, here it is, my first cosplay: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_O4MWAvLGRjWE05S...


      Now that you have hopefully viewed the previously linked picture, I would like to hear your opinions on it, especially from my cosplaying RT friends. (*cough, cough* @asgardener and @crofteria *cough, cough*) Did you like it? If you did like it, then I will ask you one more question: Will you be at RTX? If you are, then you might have a chance to see it in action and tell me your opinions in person, but that is only if my Guardian duties will allow me enough time to show it off. If I don't have time during the convention, I will try to wear it hours during my RTCP photoshoot time, if @KVN will allow me too. I am super excited and nervous about this. I hope you guys will enjoy it.

      Update Post

      9 months ago

      Hey everybody! It has been quite a while since I last posted a journal. I thought I would write an update one to celebrate the launch of the new RT site. Be prepared for some reading. I've got some catching up to do.

      The Marathon

      Remember that journal I wrote a couple posts back? The one about being cleared for the marathon? I actually ran it and finished it, and only took me around 6 hours. It might been the hardest, most painful, yet satisfying athletic achievements I have ever accomplished. I honestly did not think I was going to be able to pull it off. The furthest I had run before then was roughly 20 miles. I would like to participate in more marathons, possibly with fellow RT community members, but I will have to do some heavy training to improve upon my body's physical limits because this was me after the race.

      https://twitter.com/JordanTheTwit/status/592044697...

      Long story short: I came, I endured, I conquered.

      #Fit4RTX

      I am proud to say that I have managed to hit, surpass and slide back a little bit from my target weight for Fit4RTX. Back in June, I was able to get my weight down to as low as 193 lbs, two pounds past my ideal goal of 195 lbs. As of right now, I am holding steady at a solid 197/198.

      The reason I am not going any further is that I have been working on a few other projects, which I will share later on in the post.

      Guardians

      As you might have seen either through my Twitter, Twitch or RT interactions, I was picked as a Guardian and am returning to previous post as a PA. I was ecstatic to not only see that I would be returning to the team, but to see many members of my old team, plus some exciting new additions. Over the past few weeks since then, I have been interacting with them and I can that we have a pretty solid team for this year. I can't wait to work with them!

      In addition to getting to know my fellow PAs, I also eventually got my staff assignment. I won't say much other than just that, but I am excited to be working with this particular person. This will be a fun RTX.

      Twitch

      Over the past few months, I have been slowly but surely getting more active with Twitch chats for certain streamer. I have even become a mod for a few of them including: @LoZelda, @kriss and @Ilan. Never in the world did I think I would enjoy chat as much as I do, but Twitch has grabbed my attention. It has given me the gift of making so many new friends. Friends that I plan to finally meet at RTX. If you are looking for a stream to watch, I would highly recommend these lovely people:

      TFT

      I am happy to announce that I have been accepted into the ranks of The Forum Thread group, TFT for short, as a content producer. Soon, you will be seeing me pop up on their content either through their podcast, The Forum Thread Podcast, or on their YouTube channel, TFT Productions. As for my content, you will soon be seeing it pop up on a weekly basis in form of their new show, Making The Rounds, which I discuss more in a later post. If you would like to check them out, you can see their content here:

      Cosplay

      Yes, you read that correctly. I will be attempting to do some cosplay, hopefully during my break time at RTX, whenever that may happen. It is something that I have been wanting to do for some time now, but haven't had the guts to follow through. But after Monty's death, I made myself promise that I would give it a try this year.

      Archer_Fate_Stay_Night.jpg

      ^(Archer from Fate/stay night)

      This RTX, I will be cosplaying as Archer from the visual novel and recent anime series Fate/stay night. I have been working with my mom and sister for the past month to get it all together. It isn't finished quite yet, but I will have it done before I head down to Austin on the 3rd. I hope you guys will like it.


      That's all I have to say for now, but it's great catching up with you. How have you guys been? What have you been up to? How's your Fit4RTX going? How do you like the new RT site?

        Hey Miles!

        Sorry that I am now just getting around to this. You are most certainly welcome. I am glad that I could be of service. I should thank you for being an awesome person with whom I could work. I am usually extremely awkward when meeting new people and you made me feel comfortable. The same goes to your family. They were nice, courteous and made feel like I was one of them. Also, your mom snapped a couple great pictures of us together, which was awesome since the thought never crossed my mind. I will take you up on that drink next time I am in town. I will be there a few times over the next year for Lazer Team.

        I hope to see you again as well!



        P.S. If you are ever in the Louisville area, send a message my way.


        P.P.S. You got my name wrong. It is Jordan.

      Hey Jordan, what days were you planning on being down in Austin? If we're on similar schedules (plus being guardians as well), would you be interested in sharing a hotel room? We'll probably be on similar schedules for guardian work, plus we'll both have access to the room to grab the statue should we need to produce for some reason. Let me know!

        That works for me. I'm still at work, but before we book it, we should probably all chat to make sure we're all on the same page with expectations etc...

        The Residence Inn is not on the list. Do you want to get the Hyatt since it is only one block away?

      • ninjaspectre PA Guardian v2

        3 years ago

        Sure thing man! We need to set up a Skype chat or something so you two can meet each other and discuss this.

      • Desayjin RTX Guardian x4

        3 years ago

        I stayed in the Residence Inn last year. It's right across the street from the convention center which is nice for dropping swag off, or grabbing a quick break. I don't know if they'll have a discount again this year, but we should keep an eye out for it.

      • ninjaspectre PA Guardian v2

        3 years ago

        It's not a problem with me. What hotel did you have in mind?

      • Desayjin RTX Guardian x4

        3 years ago

        Hi Jordan. With the hotel information being released in two days, I was wondering if you were still interested (as well as the two other people) for sharing a hotel room. I was planning on being down there the 3rd though 8th, if that's a problem.

      • ninjaspectre PA Guardian v2

        3 years ago

        I am planning on being in Austin from July 2-9. I have another two people who are wanting to share a room as well. Maybe we can work something out in the upcoming months to lower costs, since we are going to be there for a week this time.
