      My wife and I finally made it down to Austin for an RTX. Our first one! Better late than never. We've had a blast so far. Got to check out Camp Camp Panel Panel and AH vs FH. Met some cool people as well. Everything we were expecting.

      I've been thinking quite a bit lately about the way I've approached life. When I was younger, I had a hunger to create and be a part of things. My friends and I would daydream for hours about the things we were going to do and make. Then, as seems to always happen, time passed and realities and responsibilities set in. Too often I feel like a passive observer, floating through life, content just to be there and to go unnoticed.

      I'm not sure what the catalyst was, maybe the fact that I'm turning 30 this year or that I recently became a father, but time seems more precious to me now than it did before. I feel that I wasted a lot of time just being a passive observer and left no real mark on anything. This has caused that part of me with the desire to be an active participant and to create to wake up a bit. It's also the reason why about a month ago when I saw that Rooster Teeth was holding a video contest for their 10th Anniversary that, instead of just ignoring it like I normally would have, I decided to try and develop something to submit.

      What followed was about a week and half of my free time was spent downloading RT pictures and videos, sorting through my own photos, writing, trying to find the right song and assembling everything into something coherent. My initial plan for the video was quite a bit different than what I ended up with but it felt like exactly what I was going for. I was happy that I spent the time needed to do it right rather than trying to cut corners just to make the process faster (something I have often done with my personal projects) and by the time I submitted it, I really didn't care if I won or anybody really watched it or enjoyed it besides me (and my wife who helped me fine tune it quite a bit).

      By the time the contest had ended, I had somewhere between 50 and 75 views on the video and handful of positive comments. That was honestly more than I was expecting and victory enough for me. When it was announced as one of the 5 winners, I was honestly blown away. I had hoped for it, obviously, but I wasn't in any way expecting it especially when I watched the other 4 winning videos and felt that they were vastly superior and more personable than mine.

      Since then, my video has received over 4,000 more views and many more comments. The thing I'm most amazed by is that there isn't a single negative comment or dislike (bear with me, I'm not patting myself on the back). In fact, I've yet to see a negative comment or dislike on any of the contest videos I've seen. In a time when I actively avoid user comments and feedback on most of the websites I visit on a regular basis, Rooster Teeth is the shining example of a quality community. It's truly an honor to be a member here.

      Which brings me back to the beginning (I know, it took me long enough). I feel like this contest is just the beginning for me. My desire to create and be an active participant is greater now than it has been in a long time. In the last few weeks, I've come up with a bunch of ideas for things I want to write and videos I want make in my increasingly rare free time. On top of that and at the urging of my best friend, user Mikethetv, I want to be more of an active participant on this site and this community. If you made it through all of that, congratulations and thanks!
