      I know no one follows me, but WOW, almost a year inbetween journal entries???

      Man am I lazy as hell.

      Oh well, back to Netflix! =D

      Oh and, hi, to the zero of you that watch me and will probably never know that this journal existed! ^_^

      That I've been a member of Roosterteeth for almost three years now. I love this community so much (despite the minimal effort I put forth to be an actual part of it) and I don't know what I'd do with Red vs. Blue, Drunk Tank, and random friend/watch updates. RT is an important part of my life, and for that, I can't thank the RT staff enough.

      Here's to all the epic hilarity and joy you've brought my life over the past three years, RT!

    • So I suck at updating this stuff.....

      Yeah....it's been forever and a day since my last journal.....again.....I guess I just get caught up in more *interesting* stuff like not failing out of college lol

      Anyways.....I've pretty much switched my gaming focus from pretty much only Halo to a bunch of other things. Right now my primary interests are World of Warcraft (well, technically I've been playing WoW almost since Beta.....but I digress), Final Fantasy XIII (Yes, I do like it. Mainly because of the story and MORE importantly, the music! :p), and Call of Duty: MW2. I don't know why I used to bash it, because I LOVE COD.....much more than Halo. It's more realistic (in most aspects, at least) and it contains much more customization. That doesn't mean I'm not super psyched about Halo: Reach though! The videos that have been released for it look SUPERB. I like where they're going with it.

      Yes, I'm still a Music Major at Texas A&M University - Commerce and still LOVING it. I start conducting next year ( a full year of it!) although I've already been doing score study outside of school and over the summer for about a year and a half now. I also just recently went to TMEA too! I love Texas, and its love for music! :)

      Well, that's how I'm doing. Then again, no one reads this anyway :p

      Until next time, friends.

      I'm actually starting to become more active on here! I guess making a few friends makes all the difference in the world. So, in other words, expect some more journals from me in the near future, because they will most definitely be appearing on a more regular basis! =D

      Also, Mythic Map pack goes live on the marketplace on thursday....whooot!

      OAS AAS LLS
      (I really hope there are other Sinfonians out there, cause that is going to be my signature from now on)

    • I'm such a lurker.

      10 years ago

      BakedParrot The Parrot

      Yeah, so I've been on like every day for a long time now....I just keep my profile logged in on my laptop lol. I'm also a big procrastinator, which is why I haven't written a journal in AGES, but instead lurk on the forums and check out the new videos and comics and such. So, to anyone that cares, yes, I AM still alive.

      Your friend,

      College.....Freaking.....ROCKS!

      Ok, so as a music major, most of my time consists of practicing for lessons, practicing for ensembles, and overall practicing period. Oh and then the classes that I actually practice for.
      Such as Marching Band.
      Which sucks.

      HOWEVER

      I still have a TON of free time (which might change in the near future, but who thinks about the future nowadays?)
      And the best part about it is that I only have to take one semester of math, and one semester of english (because I tested out of the second semester of english) and then I'm completely DONE with my actual academic classes!
      Which of course means i can concentrate on my actual freaking MAJOR.
      But I digress.....

      It's awesome to finally be around people who know what they're talking about, music wise, and can actually carry on a decent argument about whether John Williams is an original composer or if he just copies the less-awesome parts of other peoples works and pastes them together with a little flair.....
      But nonetheless, I have found a home within my school, and a family that understands me and can relate to me in every single way imaginable.

      As you can see, this makes me happy enough to actually get on Roosterteeth and make a journal entry about it. which RARELY happens.

      So, in conclusion........well, screw the conclusion, I'm tired.

      Night y'all.

    • Wow....6 month gaps are ok, right?

      BakedParrot The Parrot

      Ok so i haven't posted anything for 6 months....don't worry, i've still been monitoring stuff on RT the entire time, cause i mean, come on...Reconstruction is just awesome.....but anyways...about me......

      Well, fall is coming around again, eh? I was accepted into 2 colleges (along with their respective music colleges, by audition): The University of North Texas (best school for music performance ever) and Texas A&M university - Commerce (a smaller...MUCH smaller education focused school). Commerce is more in the country whereas UNT is..well...north...texas.....UNT is closer, only 30 mins away from where i live, but commerce is around an hour and a half away.
      I went with the latter......
      I Decided a small school atmosphere would be better and best suited to what i'm used to (a small texas private school for 12 years). I'll do my 4 years of undergrad at commerce and then start my graduate work at UNT, with a focus on conducting ;) \

      Oh, and for those of you who still haven't guessed my major (god save you)....Music Education =D

      I auditioned for a local symphony orchestra down here in texas, and I rocked it! lol i'm playing with all adults, so it's quite interesting, and it's a wonderful learning experience! Hehe It's going to take some time to get used to playing with people who already have their masters degrees, but i'm sure i'll fit right in :p

    • Ello!

      BakedParrot The Parrot

      yes, i did actually write another journal entry. :p I ish still searching for love after the one girl i was in a relationship with (the one whom agreed with me that we were madly in love with each other) got caught up with the better looking, sports-playing new guy......leave to jocks to steal yet another thing from the smarter, more artsy guys......turns out he treats her like crap, yet she stays with him.....why? I guess I'll never know.......now we're "just good friends". Of course, in her way thinking, "good friend" means "guy that i'm pretty sure still loves me cause i keep flirting with him, even though i really just want him to do whatever i want" Yes, that's a long definition.....but it describes what she thinks of me now.....in my heart, i still love her.....but she makes it difficult to stay the respectful gentleman I am.....i want to tell her off, but my heart won't let me.....GAH
      Curse this senstive part of me......I blame it on my premature birth!


      But enough of my childish prattling........school is going rather well, suprisingly. In AP English we are writing an 5-7 page letter addressing the class, in the style and tone of the author of our choosing.....I, of course, chose J.R.R. Tolkien.....it's so much fun!!

      Well, i'm off to roam the site, and probably facebook.....catch y'all later.... =D

    • Ok, ok.

      So I've been a bit distant lately.....well, ok, so this is my first journal entry, so enjoy! I got a laptop and an acoustic guitar for Christmas, and i'm simply soaking up the thrill of it all! ^_^ As you may see throughout my coming entries, I make quite the use of the ^_^ smiley, so get used to it, mmk? :p Hehe. So....anyway, just posting to let everyone know (those apart from my one friend, if they know I exist) that I am not as terse and short about things as my profile might show.....my bad =/ (I also make good use of =/ ) So, please, if any of you would like to add me as a friend, go right ahead, I shant make any fuss about it at all. If you haven't noticed yet, my form of speaking (or, typing, i suppose it should be called) is quite different from that of a normal man (or guy, I suppose. hopefully there are none my age whom are still young boys as far as their minds go). No, i'm not british, and no i'm not "queer" as some might say, but I am, simply, one thing: an intellecual. That being, you'll notice (apart from my strange emotes) that my vocabulary is somewhat more advanced, and that my appreciation for the arts, rather than sports, or the watching of atheletic games, is more keen than the average teenager. Aside from that, however, I am still a video game loving guy, almost in his prime, and although I am still shackled by the Secondary Academic system, I shall soon be free! Ha!

      Well, to bring an already-long story to its end, I will definitely try to be more proactive in seeking friendly aquaintances here on roosterteeth, and I cannot wait to get in touch with so many other kindred spirits! ^_^ Ta for now!

      Thanks. =] I think I'm going to have him recognize her for a little while but he's not strong enough to fight the flood thing so at least she has a chance to say goodbye, and then she kills him. What do u think?

    • _innocence_

      11 years ago

      it's just about done and i think it's pretty good (i must say so myself)

    • _innocence_

      11 years ago

      PART 2 IS ALMOST DONE!!

    • _innocence_

      11 years ago

      I don't know tho...cuz in the next part she's going to get enraged and go insane getting revenge for her brother and when all the rest are dead she'll meet her brother and.....that's where i get stuck. don't the flood talk? i was thinking maybe the flood infection would try to trick her into thinking her brother's mind was still somewhere in there and that she could save him, but she doesn't believe it, and then kills it....maybe...idk.

      not yet, but i've been trying to. I went to NYC to see the broadway show and it was AWESOME! i reeeeally want to read the book, but i probably wont have time until the summer or something.

      The story is somewhat faithful to the book, give or take some alterations. Either way, it is a good movie.
