      Hey. Hi. You.

      No matter what you celebrate, or if you celebrate at all, I hope you have a good time. You deserve it.

      Finals are done. Didn't get the job I applied for, but oh well. This term was challenging, and not because of the material. Just a lot of crap all happening in a short timespan. But it's over now, and I've got like a month until it starts back up. So guess what?

      Seven years ago today, I was a freshman in high school sitting in a computers class with a teacher who really didn't care what we spent the period doing. So I spent that time doing something that, looking back, has changed my life in more ways than I could ever have possibly imagined.

      I signed up on this little website called Rooster Teeth. And I must say, it's been quite a ride.

      When I look back and reflect on all of the things that have happened in the past seven years, the common denominator is often Rooster Teeth. All of the traveling I've done? If it wasn't a Rooster Teeth-related event, it was for someone I met on the site. The vast majority of the people I speak to and interact with on a daily basis? I met them here.

      This site has given me so much, and every day I feel blessed for having made that on the spot decision seven years ago. I love you all in more ways than I can even imagine. You've helped make me who I am today. This website took me in and, like family, has always kept an open door.

      Thank you, Rooster Teeth. For quite literally everything.

      Story time, ladies and gents. This one's a good one. Most of this is reworded from a lengthy monologue to @Panacamanana but I figured some of you may enjoy it as well. [All pictures included are done for dramatization and added enjoyment.]

      Tonight, while sifting through some technological stuff I have lying around my room, I stumbled upon a little bag filled with thumb drives, and a black external hard drive case I didn't recognize.

      gNAWqYQ.png

      So I take them out and start going through them one by one. The thumb drives were all pretty boring, one of them had a word document I'd used my freshman year of college, another had some pictures from a drive I took in late 2013. But then I arrived at the black box of the group.

      ZiUg0QN.jpg

      Immediately I was at a loss because I did not recognize it, did not remember purchasing it, and had no idea what it contained. Its weight suggested a hard drive being inside, and the case itself looked fairly new. So I plugged it in and waited. While I expected the usual external window to pop up, I was surprised when instead, I was greeted by a password prompt.

      GjYp9ga.png

      This perplexed me. I've never been one for password-protecting hard drives, and practically don't even use the one on my computer. The thought of encrypting an external drive baffled me, because there really wasn't anything so important and/or secret in my possession that would warrant encryption. I noticed that its name is B-EXT, which doesn't ring any bells. Naturally, I have absolutely no clue what the password could be, so I check the hint.

      vjnJjKw.png

      And once again, confusion ensues. Initialize safety procedure? What the fuck does that mean? Is this an airplane's black box or some shit? How did I end up with this?

      So I begin attempting every single password I can recall ever using. I even racked my brain enough to remember the password I had on my very first AOL account. We're talking the password that 6-year-old me set up in 1999. Nothing, and I truly mean nothing, was working on this hard drive. I'd been at it for a good while at this point and decided, "There's probably nothing actually important on this hard drive, but it could be useful. I'll just reformat it."

      I enter the reformat screen and it asks if I'd like to encrypt the drive upon completion. Thinking this time, if it really was mine, I'd remember the password, I opt to. And as I'm sitting there staring at the screen asking me for a password to provide, a tiny part of my brain clicked. I'm not even 100% sure how, but the longer I stared at the password creation screen, the more it came back to me. So on an absolute whim, I typed what I considered my last resort as a password for this convoluted, mysterious, encrypted external hard drive.

      The password I tried? goforsecure

      Click.

      I'm in. Against all odds, I have somehow remembered a very stupid password I must've given this hard drive, and I'm in. The screen I'm greeted with is very simple, and very empty, except for a single file. This lone file is a .txt file titled "lockdowncontents" which is remarkably small.

      ZyDEm4C.png

      At this point, I am actually very intrigued at what this file could possibly be, and why I would've made it the only file on an encrypted external hard drive. With building anticipation, I open the solo file and brace myself for the solution to the best mystery I'd encountered in weeks. My great conclusion, the light at the end of my tunnel?

      I had no words. I did have one gif.

      As hard as things may be, there's always going to be reasons to keep moving forward. That's a lesson I've had reinforced over the past several weeks. So here's the deal. Life is going to do its damnedest to bring you down. But you know what you say to life? TAKE THE LEMONS BACK.

      ...wait, wrong monologue.

      So I was watching A Scandal in Belgravia, and I noticed something...

      In the scene when Sherlock saves Mrs. Hudson from the American, the little painting with a skull on it has an M made in darts.

      Ever see that?

        Or maybe 221b is being haunted by a ghost that also hates Moriarty...

        Or maybe it is a filming error.

      • James Volume III

        7 years ago

        Filming error, then, like the earpiece. In my having Hull make an M out of arrows, it helps to show the almost-manic fascination with the new adversary. I'm betting Moffat and Gatiss had the same thoughts when they decided to include an M made of darts above a skull, which has become Moriarty's symbolic image in the series.

        Not a doubt in my mind that Sherlock put it there. I honestly never realized that was there until just now. Brilliant.

        Oh. Go and rewatch. Sure as hell, it is there. I wonder who put it there. Those CIA guys were working for the CIA and with Mycroft... So who put that?

      • James Volume III

        I had not, actually. Now I feel like my subconscious is noticing these things and having me add them to Hull.

      WARHORSE - an allegory to Christ, taken from the perspective of a popcorn kernel. Because they had popcorn with Jesus. Showed the evolution of the horse into a train.

      Descendants - aliens!
      This movie about a family that comes from Ireland to Hawaii, but US already populated the land. Angelina Jolee’s Pocahontas was amazing.

      Tree of life - Pocahontas remake, great performance, adapted from a musical. Great bisexual main character, musical part was great.

      The artist - Life & times of Hitler
      Fantastic blend of cinematography and writing, but wont win because of acting, SLIP UPS. Reading, obviously.

      Extremely Loud, incredibly close - green midget, ATAT walking across ocean. AMAZING SCRIPT. TOLKIEN IS A GREAT WRITER. Confederate armor was weak, though.

      The help - Carrie fisher, promoted thoughts of selfishness and communism. James is also racist, so he didn’t like it. FDR’s role was amazing, Charlie Sheen was great as him. RoboRaegan was great.

      Hugo - Hugo has a weird walking plant, on its pilgrimage, walking 500 miles. Hard to follow, very inaccurate.
