    • Moving to my new place soon!

      urbanphoenix

      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

      1 year 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.

      I ordered from Amazon, so I wouldn't be able to do that. It would be kind of hard to flirt with a website.

      I'm totally 100% offended that you want to get a job rather than meet me the next time I'm in your area. I can't believe you'd do that to me.

      And if you believe that, boy do I have a beautiful new bridge for you! =D

      Go figure, you'll have found a job out west and you'll be gone before that happens, right?

      I thought about dropping you a message and telling you sooner, but I felt like it would be super creepy if I'd done that. Y'know.

      But there you go, I was ~5 minutes from your house this past weekend.

      Tell me about it... Things got better after I got a job, but that was probably partially because I was the only person in the house with a full-time job. I'm pretty sure Dad still grumbles and bitches about me not going out and doing things, and I don't even live at home anymore. smiley4.gif

      You're stuck in the whole "I'm in the computer world but my parents didn't grow up with it so they can't understand how it works" thing, aren't you... My parents definitely understand that the computer work takes time, especially since Dad was a programmer himself, and Mum took a class or two on programming in grad school, but that didn't matter to Dad.

      The worst part is that they'll probably never be able to comprehend that your area of expertise could very well put you at an equivalent or even better pay grade, y'know?

      Yeah, especially for getting out to the people out there, you have to have that web portfolio thing up and constantly updated. That was the worst thing for me. My site hasn't been updated in FOREVER 'cause I just couldn't get myself to care enough to do it.

      My parents would rag on me for that all the time. "It's a nice day out, go outside!" "I'm working." "GO OUTSIDE!" (Or whatever other thing they wanted me to do.)

      Cooperating on projects can be such a blast sometimes. I rarely find someone with whom I can really work, but there are like, 2 or 3 people who just... they just get the music the same way I do, and it just, y'know, works. Do you have a timeframe as to when it might be getting to a publisher?

      Yeah... I spent 9-10 months living with the parents, searching desperately for a job. I finally did get one, so I've been a lot better off since (I moved out of the house, thankfully). It's not all about being super-awesome, though. I mean, I suppose I'm not half bad at my job, 'cause they take my opinion a lot with stuff, but mine was all timing. The company got out of the red and needed a new Web Dev. I applied, and just as I applied, one of their remaining Dev's put his two weeks in. I seemed to be half intelligent, and so here I am, 7 months later.

      Do you have a web presence with any of the stuff you've done? Portfolio, DeviantART, etc?

      Ooooh nice. What kind of book? Warning: I am an immensely curious person and will continue to ask questions until the end of time. Feel free to tell me to shut it at any point.

      I know the feeling... Especially in this economy, etc. I keep hearing that it's getting better, but the people with whom I graduated certainly aren't seeing it (or they just all suck at life, either or). ... Bow chika bow wow? smiley3.gif

      Kudos to you if you can get out there and do that, it sounds awesome. What company(ies) would you want to work for?

      Cool. I've been, umm... in a car outside of the Drexel campus. smiley4.gif Went to TCNJ myself. I moved almost an hour south, and I'm still 2 hours from AC.

      Out West? I looked out there for a few jobs, but nothing panned out. Of course, I shouldn't have been looking at places like Blizzard and Apple... certainly not as a slightly above average graduate from a state school. Oh well.

      What, if I may ask, do you want to do out there? You should still come to RT Philly. I went to my first TO this year, and it was superfantasticawesome. Yeah, three words mashed together into one.

      Dropping by because I saw your comment on Jack's journal, where you mentioned Philly/AC as being better than NYC.

      Never been to AC, but I'm definitely a Philly person compared to NYC. If you're close to Philly, you should come to RT Philly! smiley1.gif
