I am absolutely buzzing from all the announcements. I'll be either writing up or making a video later this week once I gather my thoughts on the games I am most excited by.
Hope everyone is having a great week!

So, the salt. Dropped my phone today. Screen got fucked. I'm beginning to become a pro at breaking iPhones. Where's my god damn trophy?! Maybe I need a quad kill on iPhones, probably. Right? UGH! It's being fixed now.
Next up! We are doing a 24 hr charity stream THIS SATURDAY STARTING AT 10AM CT to help out @Audrey and it's being hosted by@FLYbarger! You can read his journal HERE to check out all the goodies we have planned!
Here is the line up for the stream!
ALL STREAMS ARE CENTRAL TIME!
2pm-6pm Derek @DrHairz
6pm-10pm Jackie @kriss
10pm-2am Wartburg @MrWartburg
2am-6am Izzy @Tillyisfat
So you should come and hang out! Maybe you can win a prize! Or just come down to have a good time! :)
Finally, RTX HYPE!
WE ARE SO FREAKING CLOSE!
and I cannot wait to see all your faces! I got to hang out with a fellow PA Guardian on Monday to get my pre-RTX fix and now the hype levels have grown. I want to hang out with as many people as possible during the time I'm not working the convention and if you see me around definitely say hi! Hugs and high-fives are given out for free, beard touches will cost ya extra :p :)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! <3

This month's theme was Power! And it was pretty sweet! Also, we're 6 subscribers away from breaking 100, so that's pretty cool. Things have been hectic on our end. Mark is working crazy shifts, I've had classes, work and everything else. Now that I'm going to have a little bit of a break, time to start cracking out some more videos. I'm excited to get back into it as I've missed it. Oh and we also have the SSG Squad shirts still up for sale for 7 more days ! SSG Squad shirts can be found here!
Next up, Overwatch!
This game has really brought the heat. It's been a wonderful experience so far and having a full squad really helps. I've missed playing multiplayer games with a large group of friends and this has really helped bring this back. With that, we'll be streaming with a full squad tonight at 10 pm EST if you want to check that out! https://www.twitch.tv/shimmysham_gaming
This journal has come out more self promotional than I had expected. I'm going to give a bit of a life update sometime in the next week or so. Today was my last class of this semester so I'm just waiting to unwind tonight and get some good gaming in.
Hope you're all doing well! <3

There's your motivation and next....
@FLYbarger had posted a journal about streamers on the RT site to contact him for a possible stream thing he was planning. I shot him a message because it caught my curiosity. He messaged me back with details about what he wanted to do and my only reply was
SIGN. ME. THE. FUCK. UP!
Now if you know me, I tend to get very excited for projects like this, especially when they are to help someone that I consider family. Who may I be talking about? well...
@Audrey of course. Look at that smile! But don't hold eye contact too long, she may shank you. It's a New York thing, don't worry about it ;)
Audrey and her husband TJ will be moving soon across the country, over 1,000 miles away from where they are currently. Moves can be stressful and it doesn't help that they both suffer from chronic illnesses.
Fly took the reigns and set up a stream event to help Audrey out and there will be a ton of raffle prizes! You can read his journal HERE.
@Xcalante, @Tillyisfat, @DrHairz,@MrWartburg and myself will be joining the ranks to do this 24 hour stream. We will also have one more person on this list, it just hasn't been decided who it is yet. Stream schedule will be released soon, we are working on making final adjustments!
So June 11th at 10am CT, which is a Saturday, come hang out, spread the word, tweet that shit, myspace it, facebook it, post journals, let's help give back to someone who has always held the community near and dear to her heart and has given us support in the past without ever asking for anything in return!
Who's with me?!
(these short jokes are gonna get me shanked, LOVE YOU AUDREY! <3)

SSG Squd shirts are back up on sale for 18 more days!
We're offering 3 colors! Black, charcoal, and purple and all three colors come in the lady style cut too!
I wanted to do hot pink, but unfortunately they don't offer that for guys. Rude, right? Shit would've been lit.
Check it out, let me know what you think and if you want to support SSG snag one up! I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!
Oh and I'm finally seeing Civil War tonight after work!

This past Friday Jordan (@ninjaspectre) flew over to NYC to visit me for the weekend! We started off by going to grab some food at a local chicken joint by where I live. I have never been there myself so it was quite the experience. As we were eating, we also got the notification that Guardian assignments were released. HYPE!
this is us devouring chicken.
Afterwards we went back to my place and hung out for a little bit and went to see the Ratchet and Clank movie! It was good. And more food and beer at Bare Burger after!
Do you see a trend here? It was a lot of walking around and food. :p
Saturday we hung out with Tim (@thegovna), Marcie (@DLGR), Chris (@sn, Erin (@ErinM) and Mike (@Blutonian)!
We visited Nintendo World, Rockefeller Center, Midtown Comics, Central Park, Laduree (which was a journey and half to get to :p ) and then had pizza! It was great, but we were all pretty exhausted by the end of it.
We had some sexy face swap action going at one point
Tim has another picture with all of us in. Tim send me that please!
Guardians on the rocks
There was a Balto statue in Central Park
Closing out Saturday evening with Mike
Sunday we woke up, went by my job for a quick second and then had burgers for breakfast. We also got the quality entertainment of watching a street fight break out in front of the place were eating at. New York things. We then walked through Broadway and headed over to the MoMA!
The hype was real
We saw some cool architecture exhibits at the MoMA
and we got to see Van Gogh's Starry Night. Unfortunately to our disappointment The Doctor wasn't around :/
Lastly we went to visit the WTC Memorial and to take a look at One World Trade Center.
it was a wonderful weekend. Very happy I got to see so many faces that I honestly didn't think I'd see in the time between RTX 2015-2016. It felt like our own little mini con with the amount of walking we did and that's absolutely okay in my book. Oh, I forgot to mention earlier with the team assignments. I've been accepted back into the ranks of the PA's. Hyped to see the PA fam again this summer and meet all the lovely new additions we are getting. The chats are already happening and I am beyond excited. Thanks for reading! <3
