Hello Rooster Teeth Community! My name is Simon, but I also go by MrSmannams while on the Interwebs! This is my first journal entry and I'd like to tell everyone a little about myself!

First of all, I've always been a lurker when it comes to the Internet. I've been a fan of Red vs Blue since season 5 but only just signed up for roosterteeth.com 7 months ago! And as this post should lead you to the fact that it took me 7 months to finally make a journal post! But no more! I'm going to be as involved with this community as I possibly can from now on!

Like I said, my name is Simon. I'm 16 years-old and I live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Now I know the first thing that most people think of when they hear Nebraska is either, "Where is that?" or, "Go Cornhuskers!" and "Go Big Red!" Well to answer the first question... We are just north of Texas with Oklahoma in between. And for the other comments... I hate hearing about Husker football! Don't get me wrong, football is my favorite sport and I really have nothing against the Huskers, but I just never really got into being a fan of sports teams. However, everyone always automatically assumes that every single person in Nebraska just LOVES the football team, so out of spite I have decided to hate them.

My favorite thing to do is theater. I've been involved with school theater for 4 years now and I love it. For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be famous. Famous in any way, famous for anything, I just want to be remembered and not some normal member of society. I quickly discovered that I love to entertain people, so acting was the perfect thing for me. My goal someday is to be famous for something that I acted in, but that's not really realistic in today's world so I've got some back-up plans if that doesn't work out.

Now that I've finally finished rambling about background information, let's talk about Rooster Teeth! My first encounter with Rooster Teeth was Red vs Blue (like most people) back when season 5 was just wrapping up. My cousins were the ones who showed me it because it was the season finale and they said I just had to see the show. I was only 10 so a lot of the humor went over my head, but I still loved it. I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever watched. After I saw my first episode of Red vs Blue, I went back and watched the first 5 seasons. Like I said, a lot of the humor went over my head, but I still laughed. Since I was 10, I didn't understand that they only release 1 season every year and didn't know why there wasn't any new episodes. So naturally, I forgot about it and became interested in something else. I never came back to see if they had posted any new episodes. That was until the year 2012.

My brother had seen a really funny video about Minecraft, which I was very much into at this point, and decided to show me. That video was Let's Play Minecraft Part 4 - Race to Bedrock. I thought it was an amazing video and extremely funny. I then watched all of the Minecraft Let's Plays that had been released (they were on part 9 at this point) and then became hooked from there. I caught up on Red vs Blue, I watched all of the Let's Plays, I watched the podcasts, I eventually got to the point where I am now which is where I watch every video uploaded by Rooster Teeth. These guys are my favorite people on the Internet and I wish I could be even slightly like them. I plan on going to RTX 2014 which will be the first time I meet any of them in person. I'm so excited!!!

So that's me! But now that I've told the community my story, I want to hear yours! When did you see your first Rooster Teeth video? How did you find out about them? What's your favorite color? (Mine's blue) I think it's really cool to hear others' stories about their encounters with these wonderful people at Rooster Teeth. So tell me in the comments!
