Rooster Teeth just posted this: http://teamrwby.com
I was wondering where most people will be going to and if anyone would like to meet up before/after the show.

Around this time last year I can't say I was in the best of places. I still remember getting home from work and going up stairs to my bed and getting on my laptop. At this point I get on Reddit to check the Rooster Teeth sub to see what was going on with the community. This is when I saw someone had posted a Gofundme page for Monty. I clicked it to try and figure out what was going on. I remember searching for anything about what happened to Monty. I still remember people talking about how they thought he got hurt either doing something cool or something due to a lack of sleep. It wasn't until a few days later when it had come out that Monty had passed.
Much like everyone else I did not want to believe this. My first thought was "this isn't real" and I once again went off to search for information. Sadly everything I read was about Monty passing. No matter how much I wished it was a hoax it just wasn't the case. At the time of reading all of this I was holding back tears and I felt so alone. My ex's brother was sitting in his chair that was by my bed and in desperation to talk to someone about Monty I started telling him about Monty. I knew he couldn't care less to hear it but I kept going until he just brushed me off. I remember going to a Wendy's everyday so I would be away from the people I lived with. I remember reading everything I could about Monty while there. Sure it wasn't the best place to do it as there were many times I would be on the verge of crying. But I couldn't not read about Monty. At night I was watch the many videos that had been posted about Monty and that's when I would let the tears just flow. I remember RWBY and the GTA Let's Plays were the only things my then girlfriend didn't want me watching for dumb reasons. She knew nothing of either one and because of this I watched them both in secret. RWBY is such a great show that it was worth the risk.
Thanks to Monty I got more into the community once I got to a better place. I started going to the RWBY chat everyday just to talk with the other regulars there. Even now we all still talk everyday and others have joined us on the way. Thanks to RWBY chat I was finally able to talk to someone about Monty. Bonus point since it was other people that loved Monty.
Before Rooster Teeth I had only seen Haloid and I had no idea who had made it. Once he joined on with Rooster Teeth he was the guy everyone seemed to always talk so highly about. I can't recall a time when someone that knew Monty actually talked bad about him. This is super rare in the Rooster Teeth Office. It seemed like everyone loved Monty. Not just everyone in the office, but the community too.
We all miss you Monty Oum. With your passing we have lost one amazingly talented man. In your name many people have tackled projects they have been wanting to do and it seems like every year there will be a call to do something creative in your name.
We will all keep moving forward. We love you, Monty.
I saw Lazer Team could be coming to a theater in NC if enough people plan to go to a certain theater. I was thinking maybe we could all choose the same theater and see the movie together.
We all need to agree to a theater and buy our tickets. The most expensive tickets I saw in NC were $12.50 and nothing is under $10.50 it seems.
Hopefully enough people will buy their tickets to the same theater and we can all enjoy the movie together!

Rooster Teeth has been my family for years now. Even though I'm only now really putting myself out there in the community, I've been with the community since around season 3 of RvB. I've been on the site, with an account, since 2010. Rooster Teeth has earned it's 12 years as they've gotten better each year, trying their best to put out great content. Anytime there is something the community can do, we're there giving anything we can. From Lazer team needing money to us getting together to help the Oum family, we're here now and we always will be. @RTContests Is hopefully giving someone that wouldn't be able to go to RTX to meet other fans there, and make friendships that will be ever lasting. Thank you Rooster Teeth for 12 amazing years, you've been around for big parts of my life, I hope that continues for many more years.

Currently typing out a essay for school and I can't focus. Working in a crowded Wendy's listening to the first podcast by Funaus. I'd like to talk about Monty and finish up my last journal while I have time to do so. I want to say I've done something creative since his passing, but I still haven't. I have taken steps forward in my life, but got pushed back to where I was. Once I get time I'm going to try and learn 3D animation, in memory of Monty. He was a great man that has changed many people's lives, some people didn't even realize he had affected him. I've noticed that RT hasn't stopped working and many people have started making things. Even though he's passed, he's had an even bigger impact on many people. He's not able to affect people directly with things he's doing, but he's now affecting people indirectly with the kind of person he was. Knowing he was this hard working, creative and insightful person people have been taking that energy and used it to make many new things. Hearing the many stories that have come out since Monty passed has really created this joining of people, not just within the community, but in all of the different little corners of the Internet. Monty's legacy will continue, in the community, within his family/friends and in the things he created. He'll be missed, no doubt about it, but, we'll all keep moving forward, it's what Monty would want. I think that's something we can all agree on, Monty wouldn't want us to mourn, he'd want us to create something, anything, good or bad, he'd just want us to create. Keep moving forward, and try your best to match Monty's resolve. RIP Monty, we'll miss you and keep creating in honor of you.

A lot of stuff has happened this week. As we all know a great man, Monty Oum, has passed away. This, along with more personal things, have brought me to a point that is making me write my first journal and become more involved in the community, opposed to just watching everything that comes out. Monty was, no is, an inspiration to all of us. I'm late on typing this up but I wanted to processes what's happened a bit before I just put something out there. There's been a lot of crying for me, these past few days. I always had a great amount of respect for Monty, any time he'd talk I would focus on whatever it was he said. I wish I got a chance to meet him, but sadly I never did. There's been so many of Monty's quotes going around but the one that's really been with me is "Keep moving forward". These past few days that's kept me going. I really want to type more but like I said, things haven't been easy, so I have to cut this short. I will try to revisit this when I can. I love and miss you Monty, I'll be sure to give a proper journal whenever I can, RIP, you'll be loved, and missed.
