      In my opinion, this season is right up there, almost on par with Reconstruction. Episode 12 gave me chills like I haven't gotten since the final episodes of Reconstruction.

      What are your thoughts?

      So, my car engine blew up 120 miles from my home. Which means I have to get a new car. Which in turn, means I can only go to PAX for one day.

      So which should it be?

      Friday or Saturday?

      Back when I first joined this site, I loved how different it was from any other site I used. I loved how friendly the community was. I loved how organized and concise everything was. As a newbie, I was able to find everything I needed and adapt quickly.

      RT quickly became my home.

      I made hundreds of great friends in the forums, and the community was one of a kind. Everything the RT staff did for us was for the community and was geared towards making communication among people in this community easier, while keeping RT (or at the time, the site I used, RvB.com) unique to anyone else that joined it.

      I logged in here everyday, made hundreds of posts a day, made an average of a journal a day, and even created some new forums for the community to talk in.

      Then, things changed. Site features started disappearing. Features that made communication among friends easier. People were upset, understandably. RT was losing some of it's unique features that made it what it was. I, however, told people to stand by, that the RT staff would know not to totally alienate their community. I didn't like the fact that the changes were being made, but I adjusted and suggested others did as well.

      I was wrong.

      The New Profile came out, again, I tried to stand by the RT staff. The community is what made them strong, made them what they are, right? They couldn't totally alienate their fanbase, and in turn, alienate their business. I got used to the profile, however reluctantly. It would become mandatory in March, so I wanted to be used to it.

      March 1st rolled around, I signed in, expecting no difference besides not having the option to revert to the old profile. I was in utter shock. The site looked absolutely NOTHING like the Beta that was tested for the past two months. I was absolutely confused as to where anything was, and I didn't want to take the time to find it.

      I've settled in a little bit now, and learned where some of my alerts are (fucking forum alerts, why are you up in that dumb little box?), but I still can't get used to this.

      What happened to the RoosterTeeth site I used to know? It used to be a unique, bustling community, getting thousands of posts a day from hundreds of members. Now, it's just another of the hundreds of social networking sites trying to stray away from the crowd (and doing a terrible job of it).

      I don't think you realize just how ill I've been. When I came across your journal entry, not only was it one of many journals (not to mention other alerts numbering into the hundreds per thread), you had 9! journals to read!

      Once I was done catching up alerts, the NyQuil was kicking in, and it was nap time for me.

      Well in my senior year I took Networking Administration, which taught everything revolving around CompTIA A+ certification and some Newtork + certification.

      For me, the class was a breeze. I learned many great concepts and facts. However I also knew many great concepts and facts already. That's why I was "boss" around that class without anyone even knowing about it until I got the Senior Merit Award in the class.

      I'm also the student who gave the new teacher the least garbage to deal with.

      I also took VisualBasic.net with the same exact teacher. At a start, VB was a pain. It took an extra week for VB to be installed. It took two or three more weeks for me to get a grip on navigating the environment and really be on the ball for what was going on. Aside from the fibonaci and prime numbers function and procedure part, that class was smooth and awesome. Great class experience learning with friends.

      Creative writing was drop dead awesome. Greatest curriculum for a classroom ever designed, I got the most pieces published in the Voices creative writing publication, first year too. smiley0.gif

      AP World was rough, it was taught horribly.

      Sociology was just nothing filled with awkward sex jokes coming from a liberal teacher in her 60s. (she can be like that because she only teaches Seniors)

      That's all I took senior year. Networking and VB were both semesters like AP World, and those two took up two hours spots each.

      Senior year is supposed to be fun. If you want the heavy challenge, go get yourself into some other classes. You probably can't get into an AP class now. But senior year is when I realized high school is very much a chore and a day care for both you and the teachers.

      My business teacher describes college and job applications as being subject to sugar-coating, and that's an okay thing. If you have accomplishments, you flaunt them. You want to give the colleges a reason to notice your name.

      Considering you're going to a journalism school, I think that means you want to become a journalist. Also, didn't you get mad at me for not knowing what I wanted to be?

      Yeah, it was quite a bit, but the way I saw it: normally each season, individually, would be at least $40 to $60, so when I saw I could get both (due to discounts and whatnot) for that price, well...I couldn't pass it up. smiley6.gif Plus, I've had the good fortune of working some extra hours lately, so it'll make up for it.

      Thanks man that means a lot. It is one of the things I was trying to accomplish with the RvB stories, to have that feeling that you could hear them saying these things. I think that is why there is less descriptive text in these than my others. Like RvB it's not about what you're seeing it's the dialogue.

      Thanks again.

      Although, I think "Welcome to the Family" would have been better if Shadow had kept that voice when he says "welcome to the family" throughout the song instead of dropping that line entirely and start going "you can't win this fight".
