      It's been about 2 months since I posted my last journal (and it being around the time of RTX), I have decided its about time I posted a journal!

      So what's up? Life's been good. Got through my summer courses and passed decently! On to my last two semesters until I can graduate. Yay! I started clinical rotations at a hospital for this semester and so far my first rotation (at a blood bank) was brilliant! I hope all of the others are just as fun!

      On to other news! RTX was a fucking blast! I got to meet up with all of the cool friends I've made a month after RTX2013 and they were all amazing! RTX 2014 was great, got to see the Game Grumps, Internet Box, make new friends and overall had a great time.

      And finally, lets end it with a few games. I think I might be spending over $500 on games for this Fall/Winter Quarter. Fuck me... I am both looking forward and not looking forward to this.

      So what's going on with your lives? College? Work? Games? New experiences? Let me know!

      I am currently waiting for my flight to Austin for my 3rd RTX experience! I can't fucking wait! I've made a ton of new friends since the last event and I can't wait to hang out with everyone! If you're going to RTX, and you see me, come say hi!

      Short journal because I'm too excited to think of anything else to say! Safe travels to everyone coming to Austin!

      So the last time I wrote a journal, I wrote about a bunch of stuff I don't remember. But I do remember RTX was in it. So why not make a new one now that RTX is almost a month away!

      I seriously cannot wait for RTX! Got my flight and the place I'll be staying at all sorted out. And ready spend 5 days with all the friends I've made since the last RTX!

      Which of you will be going to RTX? And what are you most excited for?

      Side note: SGDQ (Summer Games Done Quick) a charity speedrunning marathon is going to happen from June 22-28th! You should definitely watch it and donate if you can! I will posting a journal as the date gets closer but be prepared!

      So, with a new year I guess I should say what will be going on in my life.

      Monday (1/6/2013) starts what I will call "Year of Hell" as my Spring, Summer and Fall semester of the Medical Science Program starts. During this period, I do not have any "large" breaks in between. A week in the middle of the spring semester, another week before summer starts, and then nothing until Thanksgiving.

      I absolutely dread school, so throughout this entire school year I am afraid I'll screw it up. But, gotta keep my head up and just get through it as fast as possible.


      1.png
      AGDQ starts in about 11 hours from this post. If you do not know what that is, it is a 7 day speed run charity marathon! Speedrunning has always been fascinating to me, but I just never got into watching until the latter part of the year. AGDQ will be the first major speed running event I will see and I hope it's going to be amazing! It will be

      RTX is about 6 months away, and I am eagerly awaiting tickets, dates and prices to start preparing for the trip. I do certainly hope i can make it considering I do not know my schedule for Summer semester but I will try to make it. And hopefully it won't be just for the three days.
      I can't wait to meet all the great people I after RTX that live in Texas! @tinadayton @commonmasses @chad @finalcutmin @Ray and @Azniac



      I'll probably post a gaming resolution later in the week for completions in 2013 and goals for 2014.

      I'll get right on that. I just wanted to make sure, mainly because I'm limiting it to only a few AH shirts. I don't want everyone to look like they're matching, y'know?

      If it's anything like Arkham Asylum/City, I'll nerd in my pants. Those games were fantastic! Rock Steady did a great job with the Batman universe/mechanics

      Good times with that game. I miss when Superhero games were that good

    • aaron

      6 years ago

      I meant it in the sense where it'd be like: Kill the enemies in this room to progress.

      They're not bad, but I don't like those as much. If High Moon was smart, they would make this game with free roam. I'm sure they'd find a way for it to work if they tried

    • aaron

      6 years ago

      Yeah, I saw some people referring that. I personally thought that game was awful, but that's just me. I have a feeling it'll be like Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions in the gameplay aspect, but I'd love it if it had an open world feature.

    • aaron

      6 years ago

      I FUCKING LOVE YOU!

      I have an idea of what type of game that'll be, and I want it!

      that is fantastic xD! That is probably the first pair that I have seen that actually slightly resemble the characters...

    • BRowndEE

      The thing that I thought was too much was the ability to give people's bending back, everything else I can live with. But that is the problem with the show, they had to wrap it up quickly, considering they only went twelve episodes into the first season, which means the next one will probably be similar in size. I don't think that makes Amon a bad guy....obviously in everybody else's eyes it is, but he truly thought the world would be better without bending in it, and even though he is a bender himself, we do not know his intensions after he succeeded his goal. Noatak truly thought that he was doing good for society, and if he had the power to stop bending, then he was going to seize his opportunity. I do not blame him for that, considering his background. And please, I have watched waaaaay too many soap operas to believe that Tarrlock and Noatak are dead. bitch please smiley8.gif

    • BRowndEE

      6 years ago

      I thought it was accurate in ways that meet the opinions of the author; I can see where all of those points are coming from, and I even agree with them as well, but only to a certain extent. I felt that they could have developed Korra and a few other characters as well, and the comedy/drama thing I agree with. Even though the ending seemed to be wrapped up so nicely, I think there is more to go off of, we just don't know what it is yet. And the fifth point I disagree with, mainly because most of those points go hand in hand. Getting in touch with Aang, Avatar State, and Airbending obviously all intertwine with each other, and it is something that is obtained by being the avatar. But it was an interesting read nonetheless smiley1.gif Did you ever continue in that fan fiction?

    • BRowndEE

      6 years ago

      Thank you smiley1.gif It is not an event that I like to publicize, I am not one for the center of attention haha. It had its good and bad parts, but overall I guess it was okay.

    • BRowndEE

      but there are a million shows out there that I don't watch...I try to look into what people recommend, I like shows with story lines to them. How I met your mother just doesn't cut it for me...
      I had no idea either, my mom came up and told me it was on, and yes it was a two episode premiere.

    • BRowndEE

      are you kidding me? I don't watch that much...I never watch plain old TV. the only shows I ever watch on tv are with my mom, so falling skies and once upon a time. It is a great show though smiley0.gif Did you watch the season premiere last night?

      Crankiness, great way to describe it. I am the one who always wants to go to bed, nobody will let me xD That does not sound fun, I vowed that I will never pull an academic all nighter in high school. It is not worth it, but I'm sure college will be a different story.

      I've never pulled an academic all nighter, so I wouldn't know. However, I have pulled ones with friends, and they are always miserable!

      I just see them as the priority in my life right now. If that interferes with RTX, well I am just going to have to deal with that. But I really do want to go, unfortunately I am on the point of giving up about it smiley3.gif

    • BRowndEE

      7 years ago

      That is the thing that other people don't understand about this whole situation. I see them a few times a week as it is, because my sisters boyfriend is working and they are always over here. I am sooo close with them. My sister has been in and out of the hospital for years now, weeks at a time, and I've had to take care of them then. People don't see the big deal in this, but imagine it from their perspective (they are 9 and 12): they won't be able to see their mother for a few months- that is tough at that age. I just wanted to make it clear, my sister is not a junkie, she has a medical condition that requires her to be put on multiple kinds of narcotics, which in the end aren't doing her or her quality of life any good. So from my point, I need to give them someone to hang out and be with other than my sisters boyfriend (who is/has been the prominent figure in their life for six years now). haha thank you, everybody tells me I a have a maternal instinct when it comes to them xD

    • BRowndEE

      I'm not quite sure about RTX anymore. It appears my dad won't take us, and kelley's mom is willing to. but that would mean I have to tell my mom, and she hates this site. So RTX is iffy.
      haha no, nothing like that. My 31 year old sister is going into drug rehab(for 3 months minimum), and I am going to be the one taking care of her kids (my nieces- they are like my own sisters, and now its like they are going to be my kids lol) It is voluntary, but I am going to try to be over at my sisters house at least 3-4 days a week, making dinner and taking them out to places, make their lives as normal as possible. the younger one broke down crying when she learned of this yesterday, soI feel I really have to step up here for them.
