      Oh my...

      9 years of being on this site? RT is a time machine into my odd, adolescent life online.

      3 years since my last update? Whew. I doubt if anyone is even out there haha, but here I go...

      - Army. Yeah, ROTC was a poorly thought out plan. What can I say, I fell in love with my enlisted MOS and went through the most beneficial transformation of my life at Fort Sill/Fort Gordon for IET. I'm still kicking signal corps ass in the Reserve. Presently, I'm a Network Operations specialist, Information Assurance (IA) specialist, Phoenix SATCOM specialist, and the commander's vehicle driver (HMMWV w/ trailer, 5-ton LMTV w/ trailer, and Govie certified and licensed).

      - Relationships. It took me a few mistakes to figure out what I wanted out of a relationship, and for almost 2 years now, I've managed to find someone to go above and beyond my "criteria" and dreams, and I'm looking forward to every day with her :)

      It's not all sunshine and rainbows, though. Through my joining the Army instead of the 99.5% of my graduating class going on to college, I've lost many of my perceived friends. Recently, I hadn't even gotten the chance to say farewell to my two childhood buds, as they simply disconnected me from their lives overnight.

      - Work. I'm still self employed. Perpetually fearing bills and new debt is the norm, but it sure as hell beats all the complaints I see on Facebook about the ins and outs of corporate workplaces. I'm content with my ability to do whatever the hell I please, and make money from it every now and then.

      If you've read this far, or are still around, hit me up at the good 'ol gmail, halomodder@gmail.com. I'd love to see about reconnecting with my few friends from this once great social network!

      Somehow graduated high school with a 3.7 GPA. Not bad for finishing finals the period before on our lovely 36 minute class Friday schedule...

      Enlisted in the United States Army Reserves. Gameplan on that is as follows:

      2011-2012:
      - Summer/Fall/Spring courses at Pima Community College
      - 88M Motor Transport Operator, 208 Transportation Company
      - ROTC Cadet, Wildcat Battalion, University of Arizona
      >> Looking to rank up twice before BCT by passing AFPT and referrals

      2012-2013:
      - Summer: BCT/AIT
      - Fall/Spring: University of Arizona, Pre-business
      - 88M Motor Transport Operator, 208 Transportation Company
      - ROTC Cadet, Wildcat Battalion, University of Arizona
      --> Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP): become Sergeant in Reserves, ROTC scholarship applies

      2013-2014:
      - Summer: Mountain Warfare School?
      - Fall/Spring: Double Major (Mgmt. Info. Sys./Op. Mgmt.) @ Eller College of Management, University of Arizona
      - 88M Motor Transport Operator, 208 Transportation Company
      - ROTC Cadet, Wildcat Battalion, University of Arizona

      -- Graduate UofA w/ B.S. in Management Information Systems, B.S. in Operations Management, Assoc. in Military Science

      Crazy right? been thinking of the college arrangement for years now, but finding a way to pay for it was impossible until talking to the Reserves for the last 6 months.

      Oh and the online app development business is great :)

      I'll be poking around more hopefully. Say that a lot, but this has been a craaazy year...

    • Hot Damn.

      6 years ago today I registered for this site... and my how things have changed.

      9 years of playing Halo. In those 9 years, war has been waged, and I've seen the best and worst of humanity.

      Isn't it amazing how one game changed so much- by inspiring creative geniuses like the people at RoosterTeeth, influencing gaming for years to come, and integrating gaming into society in ways never imagined?

      Philosophy aside. There are some amazing people here, and it's been far too long... it's time to catch up!

    • Journal?

      9 years ago

      Chirpy

      Needless to say it's been more than a year since I've posted anything around these parts.

      It's mind blowing to see that I've had this account for almost 6 years!

      Nostalgia aside, after randomly browsing my bookmarks I decided it was time to make a new journal entry.

      The last year and a half has been insane - the embryo of an idea that is my self-employed status has grown faster and larger than I expected by this point. Although the games operated by my little 4 man organization are offline (under development), the efforts to penetrate the entertainment industry have been dwarfed by my current business contracts. The current spotlight being a new Indoor Football team coming to my hometown and current residence of Tucson, Arizona - I've got a nice little deal for handling their online marketing in exchange for sponsorships I wouldn't have otherwise thought to pursue. If you are interested, the current marketing campaign site is tucsonarenaball.com/

      In terms of education, I've finally climbed to the top of the post-secondary education ladder. My junior year was dominated by seeking new business opportunities, making new acquaintances, and by my participation in DECA (as chapter president, I won 2nd place in my role play event at the state level and competed on the International level in Louisville, KY). With three great years behind me, I'm excited to continue the trek to the University level (current plan is to do a double major in Business Administration and Computer Science at the University of Arizona). Regardless of where I go, I intend to participate in some level of military service (probably at the 162nd wing of the Air National Guard or at the very least the Air Force Auxiliary (Civil Air Patrol)) to continue the tradition of serving the nation that I love.

      So there's a little snapshot of the last year. I truly miss the friends I made here, and I am easily reached on Facebook (http://facebook.com/ironfist117) or you can probably find me on Xbox Live with my new gamertag, Ironfist117 when REACH is released.

      In any case, I wish you all the best of wishes in your own treks through life, and I look forward to establishing communications with you!

      I have lost all hope in this country.

      I will not feel safe after January.

      I do not want to see democracy become socialism.

      I do not want the internet censored by the Federal Government.

      I do not want to have to give up my weapons to the Government.

      I do not want to be defenseless from my Government.

      I do not want to be attacked by terrorists.

      I do not want to have our military, and some of my friends, to die in vain because of our Rules of Engagement.

      I do not want to pay higher business taxes.

      I do not want to pay freeloaders my hard earned income.

      I do not want to pay fines for not offering the Federal healthcare to my future employees.

      I do not want to see the Dow Jones drop below 5,000 points.

      I do not want to see organizations like ACORN, and the ACLU, continue to destroy our society.

      I do not want to see inflation.

      I do not want to see the next civil war.

      I do not want to see the greatest nation in the history of mankind fall.

      I do not want Barack Obama as president.

      Please, wake up the to truth.

      The liberal media has imposed fear towards the Republicans.

      They have lied to you.

      DO NOT SUPPORT THEM. DO NOT GIVE THEM MORE POWER.

      Vote John McCain '08. Or rather, vote for your Republican electoral college representatives.

    • Website Staff 'Guidelines'?

      10 years ago

      Chirpy

      Lately, I've been thinking about writing spontaneously about the media in the last 20 years, how gaming has become an epic part of our daily lives, a fiction about nuclear war, and recently website 'moral guidelines'.

      And I'm now in my sophomore year at high school, got a game running with multiple languages and servers, and new ones in the works.

      rvb.roosterteeth.com/members/profile.php?uid=51
      ^^ As a staff member, his images should be kept personal to his profile, not available at: rvb.roosterteeth.com/staff/. I'm just ranting, because children these days are very gullible, and misinformed by 'role models' such as website staff. There should be some kind of 'basic guidelines' for webmasters & staff to follow. For example, not expressing religious or political views. Not only does it harm a website's image, but destroys their visitor counts.

      I'll try to become more active on this site in the future, like I was two years ago :P

      THIS LINK WILL WORK. It's a funny video... not a rickroll, I promise ;)

      Anyways, I'm not sure who of you messes around with PHP a lot like I do, but utilizing cookies is a last ditch effort to prevent links like lol.info/blah.php?act=idjfa&tacos=yummy, and it is great for users who change a language on the site. It's not too difficult to implement a language, but it is very time consuming.

      What's the point? Got a new commission for a game (seems people like my coding style), a bicycling game. Sounds lame, yes, but there is a worldwide audience of bikers, and according to my client, lots of people will love to buy the things they can't have in real life with fake money...

      Finally, summer =D.

      The good news: I'll be at both Wal-Mart and EB Games, and with a few installations, I'll be there for awhile.

      The bad news: Even with long installs AND a lunch break, I'll be done by aroud noon (no later than 1).

      Yup. A picture 50 years ago. That's all that anyone knows about the mountain, because no one will post a better pic.

      Maybe you should take a picture and post it. Then there will be TWO pictures of your "A" Mountain on the entire web.

      lol

    • BlackViper

      12 years ago

      Oh, whatever.

      Here is your lame little mountain. And after half an hour of searching, I'm fairly confident it's the only one on the entire Interwebs.

      B7614.jpg

      And here is ASU's mountain. This was proudly posted on their school's website, decorated just for the 4th Of July!!!

      a-mtn.jpg

      U of A shows pictures of their school from the top of the mountain and the trails up and down the mountain. Nobody seems to want to show off the "A" on the face. ASU, on the other hand, makes it a monument of pride.

      Face it, dude. Your mountain sucks.

      I graduated from the Art Institute of Phoenix, so I don't care which A Mountain is better.
