      Moving to my new place soon!

      4 months ago

      So my grandmother's place is almost done. We are expect it to be finished in the next 3 weeks....well she says three we say two. So I have been looking for furniture! So hard to find the right captain/day bed with a bookcase on the side. Hopefully when that happens I can start doing videos again because my Aunt and my cousin won't be able to hear me from there. Yea, it's a studio apartment in my aunt's place. I love having understanding family members.

      Although - if I get this job in Austin that I applied a bunch of times too I would freak out. About getting a job closer to my career path I want - not because of where I applied. I have been told by a supervisor at my current workplace that I need to get out because I literally get all my stuff done before I need to and he wants me to stop because he ends up giving me busy work so the manager doesn't complain of me sitting there. Lawls....

      Anyway, this was a quick blurb. It's icy outside so I'm cold. I will put the heat up and read a book before bed. Night!

      Monty Memory - RTX 2014

      5 months ago

      It was RTX 2014, I had just saved up/extended my credit enough that I said to myself. I'm going to RTX to see Monty Oum and learn about his process of animating and Gray's editing. If got to run into anyone else famous, props to me being in the right place right time. I flew down on a standby pass - this means if the plane fills up I get bumped to the next flight - because I work at the airport. I gave myself a buffer of a day. Despite the storms rolling into PHL and the delays, I was able to make it on the plane and head to Austin that night, checking into the hotel I booked for the night. The next day I woke my ass up early and headed into the Austin to get to the convention center early to get my badge and walk around. I was able to do that.

      I'm not going to go day by day, but for the RWBY panel, my roommate Maddie and I headed there at like 7:30/8:00 AM - It was PACKED. Maddie and I thought we weren't going to get in. But we did. Center row, center of the room. PERFECT SEATING. My lens weren't that good but I got some awesome pictures....and if you look in my images. I'm sure most of you have seen the panorama on twitter or tumblr...it is mine. And Monty did retweet it. I got the perfect image of him with his friends/family/creations.

      The rest of RTX was a bit of a blur since I was mostly there for Monty. When I learned what the situation was for the autographs I knew I had to get one. So I was able to do this goofy image on my ipad and was selected for the Kara/Monty line. It all seems like a dream now. I was able to briefly talk to him about animation while he signed the new RWBY S1 dvd I bought cause Ieft mine at home. It was perfect.

      It is a shame to see such talent die young. He was the most unselfish, generous guy I knew for those brief moments. I wished I had known him longer.

      In college it was his art and his videos that encouraged me to stay with my degree in 3D animation. It was his interviews and telling people to do what they are passionate about and just start someone that continue to push me. I have a big project planned and I am now dedicating it to Monty even though it's in the early stages of planning.

      I hope everyone out there respects Sheena's and the family's wishes. I am lucky enough I have been talking to Chloe and Devin - two cosplayers who knew Monty as well as Soulfire Photographs. I hope they all know that even though I didn't know him personally, I respected him as a private person and as an artist. I hope they know if they ever need to talk, I am in the shadows of fandom if they ever need to. There is so much I want to say, but like everyone says words can never express what I feel. How something like an allergic reaction can take someone's life so suddenly. It is tragic, but we must endure.

      If anyone needs comfort in this dark time, please let me know. I'm always open to talk.

      And everyone, please do what Monty would have done. Keep Moving Forward.
