      I didn't realize after I made the last journal that we could finally change our usernames if we wanted to now.

    • So Here's What's Happening...

      So my last journal post was me being excited getting an internship which would lead into a possible job...


      That excitement died in the following months.


      Long story short, I did in fact got hired by the job. Unfortunately it didn't really work out in the long run. So I left them last month.


      Once again looking for new work. Right now not doing so hot.


      On the side, I've really wanted to create content for my Youtube Channel. I've recently recorded some game play and I plan to make a commentary.


      Also I've been helping my cousin with his Twitch channel. Creating layouts, his home page, etc. We've been doing creative streams just recently of him recording me over Skype making his layouts.


      If you want, you can subscribe to me and my cousin to follow our content. It would be great if we could get some support. Would really appreciate it.

    • GOOD NEWS!

      So these two weeks have been eventful. The day after I posted the journal, the company got back to me and got the footage to me. They gave me an extension to finish it for the next day. I did and they liked the edit I did.

      Flash forward to today, I was informed that I was approved to move forward with the internship! I cannot be any happier.

    • Wow when did I make a journal last?

      4 years ago

      BlackSunStudios FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Century King

      A long time is the answer to that title

      How's it going folks? (For the few that actually follow my journal)

      A lot has happened over the past few months so let's play catch up shall we?

      Starting out back in January, I visited my parents' home country, the Philippines, after 10 years. I couldn't have been happier. I saw family I haven't seen in so long. Also saw the changes in my parents' hometowns. So much economic growth in the past 10 years. The province my parents come from is called Aklan. If you're familiar with that province it's because you've heard of Boracay. It's become a tourist hub. Which is really strange to me as I would never think that it would become so popular.

      One of the biggest reasons why I traveled back was that my cousin was getting married and I was one of the few who could request off work to travel. More on that later. Also I was one of the groomsmen so that was important lol

      All in all, it was an amazing trip.

      Of course reality has to set in. After coming back, I still am in a rut for work. My current job is a photographer for school yearbook photos. You might say "Hey at least you have a job!". At this point I don't feel like it's a job. I get scheduled for jobs and back in the fall when I started, there were a ton. Right now, however, the jobs are scarce because it's only prom/graduation season. This doesn't help my financial situation. I've been applying everywhere to find something much closer to my field (It's Film/Video Production). I haven't had much luck until most recently.

      I've also applied to work unrelated to my field. Only one job has come up where the people appear to like me despite not having experience related to the field. They told me that they could train me as long as I stay with the company for the long run.

      This is where my stress is coming in. You see about a month ago I applied to an video internship position where it could lead me to a full time position. The interviewers liked me and told me that I would receive an email in a week. They didn't. I even emailed them. No response back.

      Fast forward to yesterday. I apply to said unrelated job and company likes me but concerned that I have no experience. Regardless, they told me that they would train me as long as I stay with the company for full time. I agree.

      Well I reach home and minute I set foot in my room I get a email notification. It's from the video internship position

      They didn't email me until then explaining they had more people apply then they had anticipated. They told me they want to move forward with my application and will test me by having me edit a recent shoot and have it done by 10PM May 13. They'd get the footage to me by digital storage and have it would be ready by 6PM tonight. Well it's almost 11PM Central and I haven't got any emails back. Now of course I had emailed them confirming that I am ready AND once again asking if the footage is ready. Once again, no responses.

      I'm stressing because this is the ONLY video related job I have gotten where the company is interested in me, but it took so long for them to get back. But also I now have another possible job where the company likes me, but unrelated to my degree.

      I'm praying that the video job will get back to me soon because I need to work on this footage immediately if I want to have this job.

      So that's happening right now. Hopefully your lives are doing better than mine haha

      When I first joined Rooster Teeth years ago I obviously had no freaking idea what the hell I was doing.

      Hell I'm surprised how Barbara and Gavin managed to figure things out for themselves. I don't remember too much from back then. There are some pieces of the "Forum vs Journal" arguments that happened that I remember but not too much. I'm surprised how much Barbara was caught up in that and Gavin was just middle ground.

      Look what they're doing now. Actual employees of RT. Amazing.

      The support they have done for RT and the community is staggering. Especially Barbara. God I remember seeing her name as Blawndee for the longest time on RT going on about different community events.

      She's only one year older than me and she's done more in her life than what I have done with mine.

      Yeah the jealously is kickin' in but hey that is a part of life.

      I never truly contributed to the Rooster Teeth community after joining. I think I had commented on several RT comics back in the day but nothing much. I left my account alone for the most part and never made a true post until entering college.

      I really want to make an impact in this community like them. It's a bit hard with the position that I'm in right now but despite this handicap I still want to show my support.

      I don't know how but I want to find a way that I can.

    • Hey I'm back!

      Wow 5 months ago I posted about me graduating in December...its March...

      Fuck.

      Well I have graduated folks. Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production. It's been a long time coming.

      My path originally was me going to be a nurse, but I wasn't sure of it. My parents wanted me to be in a position where they knew I would be well off. Also they kinda wanted me to become a nurse as almost EVERYONE in our family was one.

      When I first started out, everything seemed okay at first. But it everything was falling down when it came to the science courses. I don't know what it was, but when it came to ALL the science courses I just could not do well. I tried studying hard, I honestly did but nothing worked.

      I suddenly found myself on the deadline to apply to the ACTUAL nursing program. My grades were not up along with some other things that factored in. I knew I had to make a decision. Retake courses in a field that I knew I would I not enjoy whatsoever or do something I truly wanted to do.

      Watching Rooster Teeth, FreddieW, Corridor Digital, and every single movie and television show I've ever known, I knew what I wanted to do.

      I chose the latter. Now here I am.

      It's a bit rough right now. Trying to find work is the hardest part of this field. Everyone wants a piece of the action and you got to be the best.

      Cheer me on guys and wish me luck! (For those that actually read my stuff haha)

    • The Final Stretch!

      5 years ago

      BlackSunStudios FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Century King

      Been a while since I did one of these. I'm going to keep it short because I got a project to edit.

      If you're wondering about the title, it's that I am now enter the final quarter of my college. I'm graduating in December! I'm excited but I'm more nervous and scared.

      I have a Senior Project that I'm supposed to be filming in the next quarter and to be honest I'm not that confident that it will be good. Hell I don't think it will even go through because how ambitious it is. The actors I want probably will change and I'm not too sure if anyone would want to do it because the script seems...lame. It's about a young man and how inadequate he feels against his older brother. To represent their tense relationship, there will be fight sequences representing the tension.

      Seems pretty cool but it's a lot for me to accomplish in three months along with editing it.

      I'm scared that it will break down and I might have to do something else. Something that I don't want my teachers to see happen and be disappointed with. One of them truly liked the idea and actually helped forge the idea.

      So wish me luck folks for the coming three months cause it will be hectic.

      Also for RWBY today ...did...Professor Porter have an ax-rifle?

      Awesome
