      "Great people do things before they're ready" -Amy Poehler

      I'm planning on doing my college internship in London, England. While I'm excited and preparing as much as I can (it's a very long process with applying to grants, scholarships, getting my passport, then placement, then visa), I don't think anyone can prepare enough to be ready for something like this. Spending months away from family/friends across an ocean. I'm working heard to get there though and to have that experience.

      The program I'm using to intern abroad wants me to prove that I won't be doing this alone and that I'll have outside support from friends and family. I was advised to set up a GoFund Me to prove this. So far I've had enough help to afford the passport and use the rest for the Visa.

      If you'd like to support me on this big step I'm taking, you can donate here: http://gofundme.com/5f6pqyj5

      I'll be sending personalized letters to those who donate more than $5 and drawing silly things or whatever hahaha.

      Thank you so much!!!!

      I'm typing this on my phone because my internet in the apartment is out AGAIN. *sigh*


      ANYWAYYYYY. The CoOL Panel is Sunday at 12:30pm in the Marriot, Room 301. So you're going to come right? Right? Yes? Good. There's not much going on Sunday, especially before and after our panel so we got a perfect slot. Which means you have no excuse not to come and support the girls of your community! And Mike... maybe. Here's the link to the schedule so even you can see http://roosterteeth.tumblr.com/post/124695865636/t...

      So grab everybody you can and bring them to our panel! Also make sure to follow @CoOOfficial on Twitter too! We're going to have so much fun at the CoOLest panel at RTX!!!!!

      Hey guys! So I mean, nothing much happening with me. I'm a pretty boring person tbh.

      RTX is soon!!!!!!! I'm so excited to be back in Austin! When I'm in Austin, it feels like home. The first time I landed for RTX 13 and walked around Austin, I fell in love. That is where I wanted to be. I hope to be there soon!

      Also RAMEN!!! I'm going to go to eat so much ramen from the real Japanese places that Austin has! FOOOOOOOOOD! Any places I should def hit up?

      Don't forget about The CoOL Panel!! ^.^
      Who's all going to RTX or would want to hang out while I'm in Austin? smiley12.gifsmiley0.gif

    • The CoOl Panel !!!!

      Nycole

      The other day I got an email from Barbara saying our panel was approved for RTX! As more panel approvals are rolling out, I'd just like to say I did not expect this. We applied for RTX 13, got denied; RTX 14 (secretly) got denied; and amazingly got approved for this year! We don't know just when or what building we'll be in but I am so excited to do this panel with my Country of Offline girls Jaks, and Tessa. I hope that if you are going to RTX that you will attend our panel and we are going to plan some more streams before then.

      Please leave suggestions for what we should do at out panel and how to get YOU involved too! I was thinking about having Jetly (our official artist) make another design for a tshirt so I could buy some and give them to some people attending our panel- having all the panelists sign it (and if Jetly can't make it, he can sign the print he puts on the shirt, like his own printed signature!).

      If you don't know what Country of Offline is- we started out as a group of girls who met in a Mikecast chat. Mike Kroon would stream his Yu-Gi-Oh playing or other games. There were only three girls in the chat and we decided to "take over" when he wasn't there. We called it the Country of Offline- since we would wait hours before his stream to reserve our spot because of the 50 Viewer limit. We started to stream too, mostly telling stories, photoshops, and some computer games. We had special guests from the RT/AH crew and then people from the community. We looked to build friendships, and we did. I hope we helped you add some friends to your life!

    • What's been going on... (with me)...

      4 years ago

      Nycole

      I made it to today. You did too. I'm proud of us. I don't think that's said often as it should be. Some days are really hard to get through. But we did it. I usually withdraw when bad things happen in my life. I don't want to talk about it and I know my friends feel helpless. I feel that if I can't handle my problems on my own, how will I handle future problems? I can't be dependent on people for help.

      Maybe you follow me on Twitter, maybe you don't... so I'm just going to explain what's been going on with me....

      After everything that occurred over Christmas break, and every reason I had to just move on, for reasons nobody will understand, I got back with Eric. Yes, I am in that relationship that everyone frowns upon, the one that is on/off/on/off/on. I don't expect anyone to care or understand why, and yes he had no excuse after everything, but I let him explain, and nobody could ever understand what him and I were going through prior to that event. So he had reason, but no excuse. Yet here I am again.

      Fast forward- many lengthy talks later, we decided to see each other once every month. It worked. We did it in secret in January, February, and he visited me in March over spring break. We're going strong, and he has plans to come here Wednesday, April 1st. He's really trying.

      I kept it secret from my parents for even more reasons nobody could understand. In fact, it was sometime after my Valentine's visit that somebody I thought was a "friend" had friended my mom through Facebook, and told her. I told him I didn't want her to know because of all the stress she is under; buying a new house, having to keep my family from killing each other (literally, I mean literally they try to kill each other... I can't tell you how many guns and knives have been pulled), and then her worrying about her own deteriorating health and mental health. Having her know was the last thing I wanted, but it happened anyway.

      After spring break I posted a picture of me and Eric on Facebook, because I just got fed up of walking on eggshells around my family. My mom kept angry texting me, telling me how I was stupid and dumb, that she was going to tell my dad. So I took that away from her, and called him myself.

      I kept it from my dad in the first place because he has aneurysm on his heart, and he has been taken to the ER multiple times because of chest pains. In fact, his blood pressure was so high recently that it could have burst, and it's at that size to where it would kill him. He's awaiting surgery.

      After telling my dad, he said "you're a grown woman with your own life, do whatever you want" and he hung up. LIES. My mom called me and had me listen on the phone secretly while I heard my dad screaming about how much I was a failure, I was stupid and immature, I'll never be his daughter, he never wants to see me again. He doesn't want to come to my commencement ceremony in May to see me get my associate's degree. There were so many other things he said.... but it was nothing that I hadn't heard before. It hurt, but I could deal with it.

      My mom told me how she was going to drive here the next day and pull me out of school and take me home (which she can't do) and when I told her that she said she was going to drive here and take my car away. The one that was sitting in the driveway for four years unused because it was to be given to me since my dad took the $2,500 in the bank that was supposed to be for a used car for me, and spent it on whatever he wanted for himself. Yet, the car wasn't mine. My dad even said he was going to legally disown me so I could never get any VA benefits from him.

      I haven't talked to them in a few weeks now. All over a boy.... yeah... and because they said I went behind their backs to go see him. But I do not need to ask my parents to let me go anywhere. I do not need their permission. They even think I got my apartment just so I could sleep around with boys... when, if you know me, I've been looking at apartments since I started school last semester.

      Maybe none of this matters to you, and you're on their side.... I don't care. I've been living on my own for two months now. I have VA benefit income, which is as much as monthly minimum wage, and it stops in May. I save almost all of it. I'm very savvy, but recently I've had so much I've had to pay for. I'm going broke, I'm losing my mind. And to top it all off, my bank told me someone in Chicago has used my credit card information to buy things. Now I have to deal with THAT this week.

      I'm all alone. I know my friends are there for me, but they aren't here And that's what I want. That's why I keep complaining about money, and I know everyone has financial troubles all the time, some worse than mine, and I'm not asking for people to feel bad.... but I need my money to see my friends. Because for one week out of the year I am lucky enough to forget everything and have a good time with the people who changed my life. They make me smile, laugh, and cry because I'm so fortunate to have them in my life.

      This is my last free summer. Next summer I have a three month summer internship I need to do for school, then when I graduate it's moving to whatever state I can afford where I have been accepted to have a job. Maybe I've grown up too fast... and my childhood is a whole other story that I keep tightly shut.

      I've just never had it easy. Nothing has ever gone my way, which is why I finally don't give a fuck. I want to do whatever I want. I want to be happy, whatever that may mean to others. Whatever they see it as... I deserve this summer for myself. To spoil myself. To not have to put up with the yelling, screaming, arguing, threats, and violence that I finally escaped from my home.

      Nobody could ever understand the amount of stress I'm going through, and everyone deals with situations differently; for someone else, what I'm going through could mean absolutely nothing. Maybe I'm a pussy......

    • 2015: Love Ourselves

      4 years ago

      Nycole

      I posted this on tumblr, but I'm going to put it here too.

      It's said a lot that everyone is beautiful, regardless of size or any other "imperfection' people seem to find. It's so hard to look at yourself in the mirror without pointing out a flaw; the pudge on your tummy, the love handles because of the way your hips look, that back fold that makes you look chunky, the wrinkles on your legs that make you feel fat, your height, your weight, your acne, your hair, your nose, and so many other things.

      What will it take for us to feel beautiful? How do we lessen our struggling self confidence and feeling of worthlessness?

      I want this to be the year of positivity. For me and all my friends. By the end of this year I want to love myself, maybe not completely, but I need to appreciate my body.

      I have acne, but once people know my personality, it's so nice that they seem to overlook that. I don't have that perfect oval shaped face with the jawline and no fat underneath my chin. I have a double chin when I look down or slouch. I also have chubby cheeks. But I can't change that! I've tried working out and losing weight. They always remain.

      I've started looking at myself in the mirror. Every part of me. Naked or not. And saying "I love this. I love me. I am beautiful'. Because I am. We all are. I need to love myself. We need to love ourselves.

      I want this to be the year of positivity. We are all unique and there is not one definition of beautiful.

      I don't care if this is sappy or lame.

      LOVE YO SELF AND TREAT YO SELF.

      I havent posted on here in a while so hi! Updates about me:
      After RTX Tessa came up to Michigan to visit me and we had so many adventures! Like going to Warped Tour. I could go on and on about how that was so amazing and perfect with my wonderful friend there but I'd run out of room! >.<
      Then shortly after that I went to St. Louis to visit Eric. He payed for my plane ticket aww he's so lovely smiley12.gif . We ended up doing a bunch of stuff (only because his mom was a huge cockblock and wanted us to go outside and do shit EVERY DAY). It was a wonderful and also horrible time (I blame his parents and brother). I'm still happy I was able to go and spend time with him.
      Then just a few days ago I moved back into my college dorm. I have the same room in the same hall as last year. Different roommates though. Yet, the people in the room next to me are the same people from last year. The ones who blast rap music and turn the bass up so high it vibrates my walls and everything on my desk. Yaaaaaayyy smiley2.gif
      But that's been my life recently, how have YOU all been? Anything major? smiley0.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

      So today is the 2nd Year Anniversary of when I signed up for the RT/AH site.
      It was probably one of the best things I ever did. I made so many friends, they helped me cope with school and the hard times in my life, I was able to go to RTX13 and have the best time of my life, I had a group of people I knew so I could go to PAX East 14, and now I'm going to RTX14.
      You all have made an enormous impact on my life, and I can't thank you all enough. You're my best friends; my internet family. I love you guys! smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley12.gif
