      Welp,

      Been a while huh? While school is in session and working part time at the GIS Lab I have no time for anything really, unfortunately that means no time for Rooster Teeth. :(

      But this week's been exceptionally awesome. Catching up on month's and month's of let's plays and all the other content has been a blast. I'm almost all caught up!

      Gonna try to hang out more in the forums and with you lovely people more from now on!!! I'm really disappointed that I can't make it to RTX, but I will be in Denmark doing experimental archaeology for Lejre's stone age village! SO COOL!

      Hope everyone is doing great and I hope everyone has a great time at RTX! Wish me luck in Denmark!

      Red vs Blue is phenomenal this season. School is getting pretty rough, and I'm so damn busy with it that I hardly have time to get on or watch any Achievement Hunter.

      Can anyone say: "Binge watch over Thanksgiving break?" I can.

      Been a while.

      Too long if you ask me. Why does school have to take up so much damn time? Between classes and papers I'm doing archaeological mapping for a nice (albeit small) paycheck. Things are going well but god damn, I'm busy as hell.

      Still though, I hate being a stranger to this wonderful community and I'll be trying my damnedest to post more and get back into the swing of things. (I miss you guys)

      On a lighter note, Pokemon X and Y are here! The past week has been filled with glorious nostalgia as I collect my badges. I hope all of your journeys are going well too. (Even if they don't include Pokemon)

    • Life is Hard and Full of Disappointment

      Past few weeks have been rough. Long classes, Work, up all night doing homework. No sleep.

      And now two very specific "projects" I have been working on that would have made my life almost perfect have fallen through. Peachy.

      As if that shit wasn't enough to dump on me, someone I knew at Washington College committed suicide last night. As I go through the normal and healthy grieving process I can't help but be a little angry at the universe right now.

      Life is hard and full of disappointment but I'm not going to give up. I'm sorry you're gone Aaron. I'm going to miss our Pokemon talks.

      Someone needs to throw me a fucking bone.

    • Guys! Guys! Guise! I'm in The Gauntlet!

      So I got a few messages telling me I was in the first episode of The Gauntlet. As I didn't try out I was admittedly quite confused. Then, I watched the video..... and I saw this:

      I was in shock. It blows my mind that I am actually in a Rooster Teeth show. It's only for a brief second but it's the coolest thing in the world to me. It's absolutely crazy to think about when I remember being a 10 year old kid and watching RVB a decade ago.I never thought I'd actually be in one of their shows.

      RTX was a blast and now I have eternal proof of that glorious weekend. Thanks for being such an awesome community and getting me to make that 26 hour drive. You're all the best. smiley12.gif

      Man, first week of classes is over. That was rough. I'm sure things will settle down but I barely had time to watch any RT videos, and certainly not enough to do any fun community stuff with you lovely people...which makes me very sad, and next week? I start work. Which means even less free time.

      ACK! Send me virtual hugs and well wishes!

      No worries though, I'll make it work. I can't quit you Rooster Teeth, being a Rooster Teeth community member is a full time job. Just one with no benefits....or you know.....monetary gain.

      What a blast right? I mean wow. This is what adulthood's all about. Woohoo. Can I go back to when naptime was structured into daily activities?

    • I have a job!

      I should have posted this two days ago when I got the job but I've been real busy since then.

      So I decided to shoot the head of my school geographic information systems lab an e-mail to ask if they needed a few extra hands. Turns out I must have said the right things because he hired me on the spot.

      No interview. Just e-mail to employment.

      I told him I'd still like to formally introduce myself (figured that was wise) So I'm going to head over to the lab on Monday morning. I'm pretty psyched. If you want to check out the stuff I'll be doing you can check it out here:

      It's good work. We do mapping and other work for the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.

      Pretty rad.

    • I need your help to make a decision.

      I want to buy a 3DS. Like, really bad. I want to play Animal Crossing, and Fire Emblem, and most of all the new Pokemon. (Huge Pokemon fan if you couldn't already tell.) I hear nothing but good things about the system and while I couldn't care less about the 3D aspect, the hardware itself seems really solid and like it could stick around for a while. I was really impressed with what little I've seen, graphical-ability-wise.

      Here's the issue. It's a big expense for me. I need to really consider whether or not to take this kind of monetary plunge.

      Here's my list of questions:

      -Do you think this is a long running piece of hardware? Will it be a long term investment?
      Nintendo kind of has this way of screwing me in that every time I end up buying a system it seems to be obsolete within a few weeks. I want a handheld that will last a few years, preferably until I'm out of college. I'm talking 2+ Pokemon games, not including the improved version of X and Y. (It's gotta be Z version right? That would make so much sense. Callin' it right now. Pokemon Z.)

      -Is buying a refurbished system a good option?
      I know normally it's unwise to buy used hardware, but I feel it's safer when we're talking about a gaming system, it's not like I'm buying a 2 year old pc here, and I can find a refurbished 3DS for 50 bucks cheaper. That's a big decrease for me.

      -How durable is this thing?
      As in, are there any mechanical issues I need to be aware of? will this thing just turn on me within a year?

      and that's pretty much it. I love you Nintendo, but lately your stuff is so quirky and expensive and you release so much hardware that it's hard for budget gamers to be with you ya know? Show us some love for being loyal, you always have in the past.

      Yo! Hope school has been going well for you. Are you thinking you'll be able to make RTX?

        Thanks! Here's hoping! I all depends on if my experimental archaeology work in Denmark is completed by then!

        It helps that I don't watch the content really, haha. I am on ep 42 of the MC LPs and RT Podcast #56. That's all I'm going through now.

        So cool by the way! I wish I had that problem. College is sapping all of my time. I barely have five minutes to spare on RVB each week. I'm hoping to marathon all the content I've missed over thanksgiving. smiley0.gif

        Good, but since being a mod, I've been a little toooo active on the site, haha. I need to scale it back for my sanity.
