      It's weird to look at how active I once was and how much I'm not anymore.


      Life has been weird for the last year an to call it an emotional roller coaster is an understatement. As open as I've been about a lot of it, I often ignored much of the toll things (both positive and negative) were taking on my emotional and mental state and I burned out. Not the same kind of burn out I experienced in school or working on large projects at work, but a burn out that buries itself deep inside and creates an exhaustion that you can't really put into words. All of that caused my depression to flare up and take a tighter hold than it ever has, and the best way I could come up with to take care of myself was to withdraw from many of the things that I felt were taking too much out of me.


      I'm taking my first actual vacation in 5 years this week. I'm making a point of setting aside time each week specifically for doing things that my need to constantly be productive would consider a "waste of time" but that I enjoy doing. I'm signing up for classes for things I've wanted to learn more about but have been too concerned about judgement for to do in the past. I'm going to the gym regularly and working with a trainer so I can feel good physically (in the sense that I was so inactive and out of shape I felt tired just existing, and this is making me actually feel like I have energy and some strength back). I'm now finally doing better, to the point where I've been able to move off of my antidepressants.


      It was hard to step back, because it felt selfish. And I know I needed to be a little selfish in order to get better, but I still felt guilty about it. I know I couldn't do my best for anyone else if I wasn't taking care of myself, but I still felt like I was letting people down. I expected more from myself after how much I'd already done, but what I'd already done wasn't a sustainable level anymore. Do I think I'll ever get back to that level? No, because I don't think I should. Not unless I want to just start this cycle all over again.


      I am planning for Extra Life (not on official Extra Life weekend, but I will be doing stuff for it this year!), looking at if we can possibly run the community Secret Santa again, talking to other community group leaders about my experience running RT Michigan to help them work through the same issues I ran into, doing group streams with people outside of my own channel stuff, and working on some things that I can't talk about yet but am excited for you guys to see. I'm going to try to be better about regulating how thin I stretch myself so I don't end up right back where I was a year ago because I don't want to disappear again, but it's a weird adjustment to make. Thanks for bearing with me while I try  purple_heart


    • DANGANRONPA IS HERE

      1 year ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      It's been a while since I've posted here (but I am keeping up with updates on FB, Twitter, and my website!) BUT tomorrow is going to be a thing and I don't want anyone to miss it because I have personally been waiting for this for like a year.


      Danganronpa v3: Killing Harmony releases tomorrow! AAAAH!


      I fucking love this game series. I love streaming it and reacting along with people and sharing the emotions it brings because hot damn it is so full of twists and ridiculousness. I greatly enjoyed the first two games of the series, and I've been waiting since we completed them last fall for the next installment to come out. There was a whole bunch of confusion about if they were going to pull a Persona 5 and restrict streaming (that's a story for another time), but now they've given the all clear, so we're going to party!


      Tomorrow as soon as the game arrives on my doorstep (I'll post updates on Twitter while I refresh the tracking every 8 seconds) I will be kicking off a stream and going pretty much all day for the next several days to plow through it. In honor of my SHEER EFFING EXCITEMENT I'll be wearing my cosplay of Kyoko Kirigiri (my favorite character from the first game) for at least the first part of tomorrow's stream. 


      I feel like it goes without saying, but obviously if you're concerned about having the game spoiled for your don't watch the stream! But if visual novels aren't your thing so you won't be playing it but are still interested in the story (or will play it anyways because it's so good) you should come hang out! This series is one of my favorite things to play with my community  blush

    • The Dude Conundrum

      1 year ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      We talked about this in my stream community recently, but I wanted to share this with everyone because SPOILER I like to talk to people.


      I call everybody dude. Male, female, my husband, my dogs, my parents, the inanimate object I bumped into and apologized to, everyone and everything is dude. I don't associate "dude" with being male, much like I don't associate @kriss with being good with sharp objects (love youuuuu  purple_heart). It's a knee-jerk term of endearment I hand out like candy on Halloween.


      BUT


      I have a number of transgender friends that have recently felt comfortable enough to come out to me and I find myself facing a weird dilemma I have named "The Dude Conundrum", specifically with my MTF friends. I don't want to make you uncomfortable by calling you dude because whether a reference to your former designation is my intention or not doesn't matter if you're like "um no I am not a dude we just went over this" but I also don't want to not call you dude and have you feel like I'm treating you differently because I call everybody dude and suddenly I don't do that to you specifically anymore.  Seriously, my usual social anxiety kicks into overdrive here because I definitely don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable or like I'm not taking their identity seriously or like I'm leaving them out.


      If you smell something burning, it's my thought process short circuiting.


      I'm saying all of this because I want you to know that I love you and accept you and if I call you dude I don't actually mean anything by it but I absolutely want you to tell me if it bothers you and I will do my damnedest to remember that. I don't promise to be flawless in my pronoun and terms of endearment usage, but I do promise to try and to correct myself when I make those mistakes.

    • Hello From The Other Side

      1 year ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Hey. Yeah, it's me. I'm still here, believe it or not!


      The last several weeks (months?) have been insane, and that whole "oh man now that filming for Day 5 season 2 is over I can get back to a normal routine" thing went out the window immediately. I've been trying to keep up on updates, but between doing that here, Facebook, Twitter, and my site it's been...difficult. 


      RTX is a thing that happened. I'm going to break from previous year's traditions and not write out thoughts or a recap or anything like that. I am somehow still processing everything and don't feel like I can write something fair. Just know that if you were a Guardian, regardless of team, I love the fuck out of you and appreciate you busting ass. 


      I've been working a lot of freelance shenanigans since Day 5 ended, a good bit of it actually at RT. I'm part of the Tuesday Night Game Fight crew (PS. thanks for sticking with us as we figured that out between weeks 1 and 2...you'd be surprised how prepared you can be for something of that scale and then things go bonkers once you hit the go button), and float in on almost every other show as needed. I think the actual RT Podcast is the only thing I haven't been pulled in for! I've also had the pleasure of doing some editing for The Know, which has been a crash course in an entirely different world than I'm used to. I am so grateful to all the groups I've been able to work with for the opportunities to learn from them and pick up new skills. There's still a ton to learn, but getting my feet wet has been an incredible experience. It's also given me a new appreciation for how hard people here work. I always knew it, but Jesus Christ you guys give it up for Broadcast and The Know crew.


      I've resumed working on cosplays, which is good because with three in progress I have two more I'd like to do. Kyoko will be done first, with minimal work left to go on her; I still need to find boots, but I have all the other pieces which require very few alterations. From there I'm going to move on to the Twilight Princess Zelda dress with my SPIFFY NEW SERGER. I am seriously so excited about that machine, like whoa. I still need to find the fabric for the dress itself, but I have the lining and overlay fabrics already so I can at least start with those. Breath of the Wild Link will follow and shouldn't be too difficult, but I've been surprised before. If I can successfully complete all of these by PAX South that would be baller. Why PAX South? Because I'm going to it!


      I haven't attended a convention since 2013. I've been to many, but I'm always working as either a volunteer, full blown staff, or an exhibitor. Many people have made the joke that I will look wistfully at lines I can't cross or attendees I can't help corral, and at first I thought the same. But damn guys, I am so burned out from working cons. I just want to see my friends and actually go to a panel and learn things and cosplay and actually remember why thousands of people flock to these things. I have zero solid plans for it beyond the fact that I've bought a badge and I'm going to cosplay the fuck out of the event.


      Streaming has been phenomenal lately. My community rocks and has made getting back into a consistent streaming schedule a ton of fun. I've got a ridiculous backlog of games that I'm starting to work through, and Workshop Wednesdays have been a fantastic creative outlet and great avenue for conversations with my chat. That connection is my favorite part of streaming and why I tend to do that over make videos, so being able to dedicate real time to actually talking with everyone again has been awesome.


      Short version: I'm still magically really busy, I'm exhausted, I'm learning new stuff, my community is fabulous, even if I don't spend a lot of time here anymore you're all wonderful, and someday I will figure out how to work on a reasonable number of things instead of all of them.

    • Cheesecake

      1 year ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Yeah that got your attention. Did you know this weekend is National Cheesecake Day? Did you know I'm kind of a master at making cheesecakes? Did you know my community had the opportunity to make me do a baking stream for them and share one of my recipes? DID YOU GUESS THESE ARE ALL RELATED QUESTIONS?


      On Saturday starting at 1pm I'm doing a stream showing from start to finish how I make one of my favorite things, the fudge truffle cheesecake. If you want to do a sort of bake-along with me, the rest of the details and the ingredient list is chilling over here. While it's baking, we're going to finish building some LEGO and play with the pups, so pretty much it's going to be the best stream ever smile

    • Sub Button Hype!

      2 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      sub-button_orig.jpg


      It happened! IT HAPPENED! I have a sub button on my Twitch channel!


      *continues screaming in the background*


      While I still have work to do to reach Twitch Partner, having a sub button on my channel is a huge milestone for me. It feels like part of a rite of passage, a major point in this journey. It is still a journey, though. This is not the final destination, and while I'm excited about it I don't see it actually changing anything about how I stream. It's just really effing cool to have this addition. I haven't decided what to do for the two upper-tier emotes yet, but the base level one is being worked on RIGHT NOW and will hopefully be in for approval into Twitch's system soon. Raids are gonna get a whole like more sparkly.


      With the addition of the sub button will come a much needed overhaul of my Patreon rewards. I'm drafting up a revamped version and getting feedback, and will launch the new perks next month. If I had known we were going to get the button I would have been prepared, but the last
      thing announced was "oh it'll be soon" and then it was "HEY LOOK IT'S HERE!" Don't worry about losing access to anything; nearly every change will mean you get more stuff at each pledge level!


      Thank you all so much for watching my content. Whether you're a Patron, sub, or someone who just likes to watch and hangout with us, you're why I get to keep doing what I'm doing. <3

    • Jenn's 10 RTX Tips

      2 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      RTX is right around the corner, and that means a lot of excited Rooster Teeth fans converging on the heart of Austin. For some, this is their first convention. For others, they're veterans of the convention scene. Whatever your con-going background happens to be, I've got some helpful tips for you to make your experience as awesome-packed as possible! This is, of course, not all encompassing, but sort of a "Jenn's top recommendations" kind of list.


      1) DRINK WATER. EAT FOOD. As obvious as this may seem, the chaos and excitement of the event can cause these basic necessities to fall to the wayside. While the convention itself is inside, you'll be walking around a lot, in a space with a lot of people, and sometimes have to *gasp* venture outside in the 100+ degree weather. Hydrating is obnoxiously important. And no, energy drinks do not count towards staying hydrated. If you're in the Gatorade camp, that's fine, but drink actual water as well. Too much Gatorade actually has the opposite effect on you (electrolytes = salt = not helpful). Make sure you take the time to eat actual food as well. Candy and chips are not food. Granola bars are good food supplements, but not replacements. Please keep some kind of snacks on you for long waits in line, but whenever you're done doing whatever it is, go get actual food. There are food options within the convention center, as well as several close by.


      2) Shower daily, at a minimum. You will be sweaty and in close quarters with other sweaty people. Deodorant is important and should be used regularly, but it isn't a magical impervious barrier. You need to shower. For your own health and for those around you. I routinely shower twice a day during RTX, and I bring a travel deodorant with me to the convention to reapply throughout the day. Do NOT use perfumes/colognes/etc to try to cover up smells. Not only does it not have the intended effect, but many people have sensitivities and allergies to these items. Be courteous to the noses around you!


      3) Have a realistic plan. The schedule will be coming out soon, and it's very tempting to say "I'm going to do everything!" Unfortunately, unless you're a 3rd year Hermione Granger, it's not going to be physically possible. Lines for panels can start pretty early (no official word on what the rules regarding early lineup will be this year), and they all have seating limits due to those pesky laws of physics and things like "fire safety". My recommendation is to pick one thing each day you absolutely want to do, and do the rest of your day around that. That way, anything extra you get to do is a bonus, and you don't walk away disappointed that you missed something you were bent on attending.


      4) Attending with a group? Have a rendezvous plan.  The convention is big, really big, with an incredibly large number of people roaming its various parts. It's easy to get separated from your group, and the large population density can mean technology isn't a reliable means of communication.  Don't bank on always being able to text your comrades to find each other. Whether you split intentionally or not, pick a fail-safe place and time to meet up in the event you can't contact each other.


      5) Going somewhere on your own or with some brand new friends? Tell someone! This is not just a personal safety thing, it's also a peace of mind for your friends thing. In the event something happens (which could mean anything from running into a shady character to being in an Uber that gets into an accident to just getting lost), someone needs to know where you were and where you were intending to be. Likewise, if you don't show up where you're expected, people will worry. You don't want to make people worry do you? Of course you don't! You can make your own decisions, but just let people know what they are so everyone can breathe a little easier.


      6) Get the app and follow Twitter. There is an RTX app (Android and iOS at the moment) that has been used the past several years that shows schedules and locations for all the happenings around the event. Assuming they continue that trend and update it for RTX 2017, it is immensely valuable! It not only lets you see where your favorite personalities will be and where that super cool booth you know you walked past but can't find again is, but it will be updated when schedule changes happen. There is also an RTXLines Twitter which you should absolutely follow. It's run by Guardians onsite and is a wonderful resource regarding what the status of various lines around the event are. They'll tell you if a line for a large panel has started, if it's getting full, it's been capped, and all that good jazz. 


      7) Be careful with alcohol/caffeine intake. With all the extra energy exertion going on, it can be easy to accidentally overdo either one of these. This partially goes back to point 1, but bears specific mention. Listen to your body, and recognize your "usual limits" will probably not apply in this heat with you running around the way you will be.


      8) Have a question? Find a Guardian! Guardians are fabulous members of the community that volunteer their time to help make RTX what it is. You'll see them everywhere! They're doing everything from getting you your badge to getting as many butts as possible into panel rooms to getting you your merch at the store. Guardians can be identified by their shirts which say "GUARDIAN" on the back (also there will be 500 people all wearing the same shirt as each other every day) and are more than happy to help you out! If the particular one you're talking to doesn't have an answer, they'll direct you to someone who does. After all, RTX is huge, and as good as the Guardians are they can't know everything. Though many of us try  wink


      9) Special Guests want to see you, but they have places they have to be sometimes. You've heard them on the podcasts and in videos saying they want to meet as many people as possible, but the reality is that your favorite personalities have a schedule to keep to. They have panels, signings, and other secret stuff that isn't necessarily on a public schedule. If you see Michael Jones out in a hallway and want to say hi, don't be surprised or offended if he or his Guardian tell you he can't stop. Trust me, he wants to! But he also can't be late for a scheduled event. The staff of Rooster Teeth and the other guests of RTX would love to say hi to and take pictures with everyone they run in to, but even if they only took 15 second with each person and never went to any panels or signings they could still only get through 5700 people, and there's waaaay more than that at RTX. Don't get me wrong, you can ask! Just be ready for them to say they really can't stop and they have to go.


      Related: they want to enjoy RTX too! They may want to see what's out on the show floor or show their parents a panel. Please be respectful of that too; they're people, after all!


      10) Make friends! You are all waiting in that line for the same reason, so you have instant common ground. Talk to the people around you, you never know who you're going to meet! Maybe you'll recognize someone's username as the person you talk to in the forums all the time. Maybe you'll pick up some cool tips from that super awesome Ruby cosplayer over there. Maybe you'll meet a new kindred spirit who shares your love of cringey badly-dubbed animes. Who knows! You certainly won't, if you don't try talking to them.



      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Above all, be excellent to each other. Be safe, be smart, and have fun.  purple_heart

    • D5S2 Is Over...Now What?

      2 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Filming for the second season of Day 5 has been over for a little while now (psst it premieres on August 6th!), but I've only been actually away from it for a week due to all kinds of post activities. Turns out when you film for 13 weeks and have a lot of actors and crew and equipment all coming in and out at various times there's a lot of loose ends to wrap up. I joked about my newfound "freedom" when I left the office last Friday, leaving behind 14 hour days (on a good day...don't ask me about the length of the worst) and practically living in the office since January, but in reality I wasted no time getting back to my usual grind.


      In other words, be ready to see a lot of me  smile  No not like that! I mean see me more often. Geeze, bunch of perverts. What all am I up to? Glad you asked!


      E3 Coverage


      The Constantly Calibrating crew is doing a lot of E3 coverage over the next several days, and I'm joining them for the Nintendo Direct on Tuesday. For any of the conferences, tune in on Twitch 15 minutes beforehand to get some pre-show goodness of predictions, expectations, and general commentary before the real heavy-hitting news starts. I'll be live with them starting at 11:45AM Eastern/10:45AM Central for Nintendo's session Tuesday. 


      Bell of Lost Souls


      BoLS is a tabletop gaming news outlet that's been doing their thing for 12 years, keeping tabletop gaming fans up to date on the latest in miniatures, board games, and D&D. Traditionally operating in written media, they've started branching out into video representation of their content. Their latest experiment is joining the world of Twitch, showing off tabletop games with an awesome studio set up that both introduces new players to the game and brings ridiculousness to the interwebs. This coming week is the big launch, and I will actually be joining them! Every(ish) Tuesday from 5PM to 8PM Central I'll be part of the board game contingent (no D&D from me...yet) bringing you news, instruction, entertainment, and probably some creative not-swears.


      YouTube


      Putting out my own videos is definitely what suffered the most through Day 5 production. LoLink and I finished Train Valley, so now it's time to tackle a new game that tests the limits of our marriage. I've also started filming a solo-series again, which I'll hopefully be able to start releasing after RTX. I'm not-so-patiently waiting for the Steam summer sale as well, eyeing some more good games for recording purposes...


      Twitch


      I semi kept up with streaming during production, but it also slowed down a bit. No more! I'm shifting my schedule to better compliment my new endeavors, but I'll be back on a pretty regular basis now.  My new schedule is (all times in Central):


      Stardew Sunday - 2PM to 5PM
      BoLS Tuesday - 5PM to 8PM (on BoLS channel, but also hosted on my own)
      Creative Wednesday - 7PM to 10PM
      Tiara Thursday 7PM to 10PM


      Creative Wednesdays (yeah I know it needs a better name) will be a mix of cosplay, painting, and LEGO streams. There will probably be extras of these types of streams mixed into the week as I work on things, but this is your guaranteed music-request-and-chill slot!


      Freelancing


      Some of you may have already seen my name popping up in weird places because of this one. I am taking on various types of freelance work in order to learn new things, keep my current skills sharp, and have new ways to help bring you guys content that you enjoy. I'm doing video  editing, production assistant gigs, jewelry commissions, you name it.  I'm all over the map! I've already had the pleasure of working with some fantastic groups and learning a bit about camera op, and I'm looking forward to practicing that and picking up some new skills.


      RTX


      The dreaded R-word...lots to do to prep for RTX still, but the cool thing is I have a fabulous team that kicks butt. I also have half of a "helpful tips for attendees" post written up that I'm hoping to get posted later this week. How did RTX get so close without me noticing?!


      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      So, yeah! I'm a busy little bee. How are you all doing? Are you ready for RTX?

    • Day 64

      2 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Today is day 64 of filming the second season of Day 5. The last day.


      Sixty. Four. Days. Of. Filming.


      That's a lot. A LOT. It's been fun and exciting and really cool to see how something like this goes from paper to reality and be a part of making that happen, but it's been exhausting and frustrating and ridiculous and I am SO GLAD it is over. Will I do it again? Probably. Because I'm a glutton for punishment.


      I still have another two weeks to go here, wrapping up all the loose ends and getting everything closed out. No idea what is next for me in the film world, but with RTX right around to corner I'm perfectly fine taking a break to really dig into prepping for that and getting back to streaming and my neglected cosplays. It'll give me time to explore my other options without the pressure of needing to make a decision immediately.


      How have you guys been doing?

        Once a day you vote up a combatant 10 points and vote down a combatant 10 points (rules are in the post at the top of the page). When a combatant is reduced to 0 it is removed from the list.

        Right now we are having a Champions tourney (all of the past winners are fighting it out for Supreme Champion).

        Here's a Journal explaining the Champions' Tourney Setup

        It's a vote-once-a-day game. I saw that Link was going down and immediately thought of you. Thought you might be interested.

      Hey LoZelda! I was wondering if you've seen the footage of the upcoming Zelda for Wii U. It looks AMAZING, and I'd love to hear your initial thoughts of the gameplay.

      Here's a link, if you haven't seen it yet.

      Granted, it's still in development, but I'm truly fascinated nonetheless.

        I'd really like to see the newest iteration to utilize concepts from the original game, as well as Link Between Worlds.

        Both these games had you thrown into the world, and gave you the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want. The idea of completing each dungeon in any order was so great, and I'd really like to see that implemented into the new game.

        I did actually catch it this weekend!

        I love how beautiful and grand the world appears to be, and the mechanic of Epona not being as dumb as a bag of rocks anymore and being able to avoid trees and such. I'm not sure how I feel about the slow motion jump-off-the-horse-and-shoot-your-bow thing. Beyond that, we haven't really seen anything, so I'm trying to withhold judgment. I am currently in the "cautiously optimistic" phase. I thoroughly enjoyed Skyward Sword (though I wish you could, like, turn off Fi), so I am hopeful they are bringing the series back on track after the deviations made for the handheld versions.

      I just had a crazy thought. I was replaying Skyrim on PC since it was $5 on Steam sale and I got to thinking about the LoZ stream we did with @ninjaspectre. I mentioned that I thought LoZ would be interesting to see if someone made with darker and grittier (i.e. with an M rating). Would you say that Skyrim, as an existing IP would best match what a LoZ game would look like if it were more mature?

      -Skyrim, you play as a "hero" chosen by fate to be the dragonborn reborn after the last one was Talos centuries ago.
      -You range all over different environments collecting items to help you in your quest
      -The main villain wants to rule the world and only you have the mystical power that can defeat this foe.
      -Unlike other similar games (Dragon Age comes to mind), the story is focused on you, not a party of NPCs
      -You get to ride horsies!

      Would you play a LoZ game if it looked like Skyrim?

      Not sure if you'd be able to make it to any of these, but there's a pretty good range in case you want to make any travel plans. I'll likely be going for the Austin one.

        When they did the first "season", they essentially did two rounds; one super internationally and one that was more US focused after the first tour was so successful. I was able to see the second round because they actually came to a city only 50 minutes from me. I'm hoping they do that again.

      So I'm looking at a ticket in our support queue for a dental office in Kalamazoo. Going by the looks of it, it sounds like the office screwed up royally, so my first thought was going to be having somebody fly me up there to slap everybody in the office and then come say hi.

        *GASP*

        ...no actually I don't blame you. If I was into that kind of game I'd probably do the same thing.

        This may be blasphemy, but I'm looking forward to picking up Diablo 3 for the One. I like the "living room" environment for gaming and not clicking the mouse non-stop to move/attack/loot.

        I'm glad things are returning to normal (sans sneezing) and that you're off the pain killers. As for activity restrictions, I suppose I can excuse you from the Fit4RTX campaign ... for the time being smiley8.gif . While you're still on activity restrictions, find me on Xbox Live (justamiddleman) and we'll play games; while you can't participate in Fit4RTX, there's no reason your thumbs can't be in shape!

        You are such a slacker...

        Doing alright all things considered. I'm totally off all pain killers (OTC included), so that's nice. I'm a tad uncomfortable, and the activity restrictions suck, but for the most part I've been able to return to life as normal already which was a pleasant surprise. Though I'm still not a fan of sneezing...

      I have no doubts that you are going to beat this. I am here for you, WE are here for you. We may not physically be near you, but we are all thinking of you and we are always here if you need us.

      Now hurry up and kick this thing's ass.
