    • Things to do after RTX

      1 week ago

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      RTX always feels like the end of the year for me. 11 and a half months out of the year is dedicated to this show. With that in mind, here are my post RTX resolutions.

      Update my poor, neglected website - www.sailortweek.com

      Stream - Come on, girl. It's been MONTHS -
      www.mixer.com/sailortweek

      Turn 40 -
      ...huh... *counts years*
      Yep. 40 years old.

      AND I turn 40 on a Tuesday. A TUESDAY! What a ridiculous thing.

      Plan Disneyland trip - Aaaawwww shit, motherfuckers. October is going to be full of costumes, sore feet, expensive dinners at the Blue Bayou, and maybe a little bit o' that Star Wars stuff.

      Plan Vegas Trip - one of my groups is going back to Vegas in August. I really do enjoy that fake, desperate, and gorgeous city. Let's see what it's like without all the alcohol I used to consume.

      Maybe work another con or 2 -
      I am on the schedule to work for Zen Monkey Studios at Rose City Comic Con. I missed getting PAX tickets...because the day PAX tickets went on sale was the day we took Banner back to the Humane Society...so I have nothing on the schedule for that weekend. We'll see if Rooster Teeth needs me or I'll just hang out downtown or just not bother with Seattle at all during Labor Day weekend because I am now officially old enough to say that I do not recognize ANY of the acts headlining Bumbershoot this year.

    • Taking Chances

      1 week ago

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      I took a chance and applied for a job.

      Got that job.

      Hated the commute, conditions, and pay of said job.

      Quit that job with a newfound appreciation for my lifestyle, household, and responsibilities.


      Not a complete wash, but a good lesson.


      Then...we adopted a puppy. A beautiful black lab mix with a fiery personality.

      Long story short - the cats rejected this new lifestyle. One cat would not come out of hiding or eat for 4 days.

      We had to give the puppy back to the Humane Society. Puppy gets adopted to another family in less than 24 hours...but he was my puppy. And I miss my puppy.


      Took that chance with a puppy and it didn't work.

      And instead of shrugging it off like the job, this one is lingering. The weather is nice and so everyone is out there walking their good doggos. I can't help but feel this hot envy. I will never get to boop his snoot. I will never hear his funny little sleeping howls. Those are now only for his new family. And the envy gets more chewy.


      We know this is all for the best. We know that we're not the only people who had to - regrettably and with a broken heart, sobbing - give their pet back to the shelter. We did the responsible thing. We did it for the sake of our cats. We did it for the sake of the puppy that needed more room than we could provide.


      But I am back to that previously newfound appreciation I felt when I quit my job with the added bonus of intense heartbreak. I miss Banner, you guys. I love that pupper. I know that his home will give him all of the space that he needs to become a kick ass doggo.


      Thor is out of hiding and eating. Loki took the opportunity to become the alpha...but Thor is coming back to be being himself. Loki is in for a surprise. All will be back to what it was. 


      We are maintaining some of the new habits we formed when we adopted Banner - cleaning more often, keeping counter tops clear, and cleaning up my desk space because it still looks like a scene from Fallout 4...I got to paint my nails for the first time in 7 weeks. I cleaned my fridge. 


      Out of all this, taking a chance is hard. The possibility of failure scares the absolute shit out of some folks. The amount of time, money, emotional investment, and effort lost is enough to keep people away from going outside of a comfort zone. I don't regret quitting my job and am super thankful that I could/did. I don't regret giving Banner back because I know it was the right thing to do, but the decision still hurts. Nothing that we did with Banner was a waste. What we learned about dogs in training, discovering a whole new level of patience, and keeping shit CLEAN are still valuable and I am grateful.


      And this hurt is temporary. This hurt is is shared by many who have been in this position. The empathy we've received from our pet owning friends, our fostering friends, and our rescuing friends has been uplifting. 


      This won't stop me from taking chances in the future. This won't keep me from going outside my comfort zones.

      Because this pain - as well as the guilt of relief of going back to the same-old - is temporary. 









    • This Week is Last Week

      2 months ago

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      As you all can see, I have been kinda silent on the site. This was totally not intentional and has very little to do with the new site or direction of the community or anything like that.

      It was all really because I got a job.

      I got a job that I am quitting and my last day is this Friday.


      The job that I had was pretty neat. I was working for a company called Lionbridge. I worked on the Mcirosoft campus in Studio A - right there in the thick of Xbox and Mixer. This campus is terrific! As a vendor (work at Microsoft but not a Microsoft employee), I still had many amenities to utilize. Microsoft treats its friends well. Working as a tester was pretty cool. I did not have to take work home with me. My company is stingy with the overtime, so you leave at the end of your 8 hour shift no matter what. The pay was shit, but that seems almost universal these days.


      What was supremely screwing me over was the commute. Y'all know that i don't drive. I hate driving. I made this decision when I was 18. I'm 39 now. This was not a "you'll grow out off this" kind of thing. I really, REALLY hate driving. So my commute by bus was...challenging. It's easy for me to get to my house to Microsoft because there is ALWAYS a bus. However, most bus routes are not express. There are many stops and winding routes.There is massive benefits to this UNLESS you're me and have to get somewhere other than downtown Seattle. My commute time was 2 hours each way. This means that 4 hours (on most days, 3 hours) of my day was spent on buses. This also means that my evenings were reduced to maybe 2 to 3 hours of wind-down time...that was pretty much making dinner, eating dinner, cleaning up after dinner, annnnnnd then to bed.


      No streaming. No RTX chores. No project time. Nothing but work, eat, and - God willing - sleep. Total bummer, my dudes.


      The whole reason I took this job was because I was feeling lost. I was home alone all day and, like a puppy, would get all excited when people came home and I would want to play...but everyone was exhausted from their exhausting jobs. Totally reasonable, right? You would think I would have accepted that! But noooOoooOOoooOOooOO. I was super lonely and everyone around me was super tired. I felt left out of work-related conversations leading me to feel like I was less-than or a the only child/inexperience human being in the room. It got to me big time. So, I needed out of the house. I needed a job. I wanted to contribute somehow.


      When I landed the job, I thought this would be what I needed...and it totally was! The job and new schedule was perfect until it was time to start working on RTX. I went form working on RTX everyday down to a pathetic 2 hours a week. My sleep schedule became STRICT. If my ass was not in bed by 9pm, I'd be fucked the next day. If I caught a bus anytime after 6am, my commute would increase because of traffic and I'd be fucked. I had no leeway. I mentioned how short my evenings had become. This also screwed with our eating habits. We started eating out a hell of a lot more. We're not fast food people, but teriyaki and Qdoba became a weekly staple and that's not the best choices. DELICIOUS choices, but not the most health-centric of choices. Also - $12 an hour is just silly. It covered the cost of our increased eating out. Realizing that I had zero time for RTX and game streaming, I began to rethink my values. Any day that i had to call in sick from work, I would stay home and clean. My God, I love a clean house. Why was I not into cleaning when I had all that unemployed free time? It finally hit me after Christmas:


      I GOT MONKEY-PAWED.


      I don't need to be included in the big kids' work discussions. It was all bitching and moaning about work! I don't need to contribute financially to the household because we are extremely fortunate. I don't need a paying job to feel cosmically validated. I'm proud of my RTX work! I LOVE game streaming! The house doesn't have to look like it does because DECLUTTERING AND CLEANING IS TERRIFIC THERAPY. And 4 hours to commute for anything less than $25 an hour is pretty fucking terrible. PLUS, I haven't sen my parents since Christmas and that sucks 31 flavors of garbage.


      So, I put in my resignation.

      I can get back to focusing on RTX. I can stream again. I can do things to my website that I haven't touched in MONTHS. I can clean my house!


      *INSERT GUARDIAN STUFF HERE*

      I need to tell you all something very important - @mrarcys is a god damn life saver. 85% of all RTX Guardian centric stuff happening right now is by his magical hands. He is building our new internet space and responding to emails and being on top of everything. Thank you so much, Dan. <3 Our Discord mod team is knocking it out of the park, our information team is rocking it on a daily basis working on our new information spaces, and our team leads are keeping me positive. Our Guardians have been so patient and I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate that. The best thing about all of this is that there has been no groundbreaking RTX news to pass on to Guardians yet, so the slowness is to our advantage! I am filled with so much love and appreciation for you all right now. We're getting on track. Teams are being assigned. Stuff's happening!


      Also - @sirNARVY is my everything. He has been extremely supportive in all of this. <3 


      Anyhoo - there it is. I went from "I hate being stuck at home!!!" to a pendulum swing of "I long to be a chubby housewife again!"

      I'm going to be very happy with this decision. I have great things planned. :)


      TL;DR - Being an adult is hard. That's not hyperbole. Goals change. Life changes. And when you get to make those changes by choice, it's not too bad. You're identity is not the money you make. And having a life partner and fantastic friends who support you is pretty fucking amazing.

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

       

      This is pretty much like my last post - This post right here.


      If you are an accepted Guardian and you have not received an email from the Head Guardians about our Discord server, please reach out to me ASAP. We hope to send email reminders to the folks who have not authenticated their Discord invite sometime in the next few days.


      You have NOT missed any super imperative updates. We are all still in the planning process. No schedules or teams or weird changes have been announced - BUT we want you all to be ready to receive such news, so getting you all up-to-date with this email is going to help with that.


      Before you reach out to me, please check all of your email tabs. Check your spam. Check your trash. The email might be there!


      Let's get a little personal.

      *pulls up a chair*

      Now, this is new and different for all of us. The new RT site does not accommodate private groups and forums, so we had to come up with an alternative.


      We are also in a weird position with my recent full time job for Lionbridge at Microsoft/Xbox - this means that our email and message response time is much longer than in the past. I passionately apologize for this, but it does go to show how much time I was spending on RTX when I was unemployed. We are currently looking at response times being about a week. Your patience is greatly appreciated while all 3 Head Guardians juggle full time jobs and RTX duties and these new communication spaces we are trying to implement. Also, our Discord team and information conversion teams are in similar circumstances: full time jobs, family duties, and so on. We are ALL volunteers and are doing what we can with what little free time we have. <3 


      Thanks, peeps. 



    • Muxed0 asked SailorTweek a question

      Referencing the comment about changing username invalidating the application, is that only after submitting it?

      Answered: Feb 13, 2019

      Correct. 

      When a user changes their name on RT, the Head Guardians have no way of knowing. We are not admins or employees, so we do not receive an alert when a name change occurs. If a Guardian changes their username and doesn't tell us, then they are lost in the system. Those Guardians will not get assigned to teams or receive emails or be greenlit for our twitter and discord because we would lack the up-to-date information. If a Guardian changes their name and DOES tell us, it's a bunch of work that we have to do - change the usernames on all of our databases, contact sheets, and portals. 

      We ask folks to hold off on changing their usernames until after RTX and before the next application goes live. If a Guardian really REALLY wants to change their username, it is best that they let us know BEFORE they make the change. A head's up makes our job so much easier...but we do ask to hold off until after RTX.

      Do we know if there will be an RTX London again this year yet? And if so when do you begin taking guardian applications?

      Answered: Feb 13, 2019

      That would be an excellent question to ask the RTEvents team. I do not know anything regarding RTX London. The Head Guardians for London are @Boomer and @Arileya <3

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      Yo, my peeps!


      We have sent an email to all of our Guardians this week! I know how much you all love updates, so I would hate for you to miss this one.


      The email was from a GuardianWire address and is all about the next phase of Guardian Stuff n' Things (not the official title, but it rolls nicely off the tongue)


      Please check your spam filters and all those goofy Gmail tabs.


      WHAT IF I DID NOT GET AN EMAIL?

      We gotchu, friend. Just email me and the team will get to it.


      We are working through the emails and messages we have received in the last few days. We appreciate your patience!

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      All RTX Guardian related questions should either be emailed to me - sailor.tweek at gmail - or send me a private message or comment on an appropriate post here on RT. 


      **  I do not answer Guardian questions on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or Discord DM **


      This is not a new rule :)


      You will not get an answer faster if you ignore my communication request.
      I promise <3


      I have a day job, so Guardian related stuff has to wait until I get home from work.


      Thanks!

      That anxious moment you've all been waiting for!

       towerGUARDIAN EMAILS ARE BEING SENT RIGHT FREAKIN' NOW! tower

       

      fJ4jhRqeHs29V3DJmFsi8k8dneQ=.gif

       

      * Everyone who applied will receive an email of some sort.

      * Emails are sent to the address that you provided on the application.

      * The email will come from a Rooster Teeth email address. Check your spam filters. Check all of those wonky gmail tags. If you do not receive an email by the end of the day emails go out, please contact me here on RT or by email (sailor.tweek@gmail.com)

      Everyone who applied should be receiving an email.

        


      Approximately 32% of the emails being sent this week will contain the dreaded "No thank you". I want to take this opportunity to talk about why applicants get a ...God, I hate calling it this...a rejection letter.

       

      1. We do not hate you - Are you kidding? You volunteered to give your time, money, energy, blood, sweat, and tears to this show! We appreciate the passion and willingness to help! I urge you to not think otherwise. Thank you for applying. Seriously.

       

      2. Lack of details - Many of you, sadly, gave us one sentence details about your skills and/or experience. There are half a dozen large scale shows ending with "Comic Con", so just listing "comic con experience" didn't really tell us what you worked. Sometimes, the convention worked list was impressive, but lacked any explanation of duties performed. Convention duties are not implied, guys. Every con varies in what they have their volunteers do. We need to know specifically what you have done so we know what you can bring to our team.

       

      3. It all comes down to numbers - We accept double the amount of Guardians that we need to run RTX. I wish that we could say “yes” to everyone.

       

      If you know someone who has questions or they did not receive an email, point them in my direction!

      Again, thank you. We thank each and every one of you for applying.

       

      Hey. I love you guys. Thank you all for your patience and your passion. I know much of these Guardian-centric public posts are recycled year-to-year, but it all still comes from the heart. Thank you a thousands times over for taking the time to apply and showing your love and wanting to make RTX truly one of the most amazing shows ever.


      EDIT:  *If you were accepted, please DO NOT buy an RTX ticket. A badge will be provided for you.

      Hey Mary, I had a random thought about the shirt sizes that we put on our guardian application. I don't remember if I put M or L, (I need it to be Medium) but if I put Large by mistake, is it a big deal to ask for a different size once they are given to us? Thanks a lot (for everything! :)

  • Questions answered by SailorTweek

    Correct. 

    When a user changes their name on RT, the Head Guardians have no way of knowing. We are not admins or employees, so we do not receive an alert when a name change occurs. If a Guardian changes their username and doesn't tell us, then they are lost in the system. Those Guardians will not get assigned to teams or receive emails or be greenlit for our twitter and discord because we would lack the up-to-date information. If a Guardian changes their name and DOES tell us, it's a bunch of work that we have to do - change the usernames on all of our databases, contact sheets, and portals. 

    We ask folks to hold off on changing their usernames until after RTX and before the next application goes live. If a Guardian really REALLY wants to change their username, it is best that they let us know BEFORE they make the change. A head's up makes our job so much easier...but we do ask to hold off until after RTX.

    That would be an excellent question to ask the RTEvents team. I do not know anything regarding RTX London. The Head Guardians for London are @Boomer and @Arileya <3

     heart  heart  heart Thanks! It's a process that takes super long - and this year it seems like ti is taking longer than I'd like - but we're doing pretty well so far! We have terrific support from RT Events team and our Team Leads. Hoping to get these assignments out before the end of the month! 

    The answer for this question is on our Guardian FAQ doc located on the Guardian FAQ thread on our group forum :)

    Not really. Do what you can afford :) I personally fly Alaska/Virgin everywhere I go, but that's just my preference and what my airline miles are tied to. 

    I can't really tell you about the order in which applications are accepted and rejected (because that is never a constant), but I can an example  in what I order I read them in!

    I start out with the returning Team Leads and then to the following filters:

    Past Guardians for Austin

    Past Guardians for Sydney and London

    Convention or similar experience

    Particular experience - keywords like DISNEY, RETAIL, COMIC CON, THEME PARK, TEACHER, PAX and so on

    Applied in the past

    First time applicants

    No convention experience

    Previous and current RT interns


    But all that really matters is that I read EVERY. SINGLE. APPLICATION. more than once. It's a lot of reading!

    Hello!  Great question! The rule is that you must be 18 to work the event, but you can absolutely apply if you will be 18 before the event happens.  :)

    There has been no announcement and applications have not been posted. Keep any eye out, though. Soon! And don't stress yourself out checking 6 times a day. Applications will be open for a month ;)

    No need to apologize! Questions are good  ^_^


    We look for passionate people of all skill sets.  I have a few tips here:


    List the conventions that you have worked: The name of the convention, the year, and your duties. Be detailed about your experience! If you were a PA, tell us who you handled. It's not "name dropping", it's telling us about your professional experience. 


    Tell us about your skills: Having no convention experience does not damn you to the rejected pile. Tell us what qualities you have that will contribute to Guardians. Do you have retail experience? That's all sorts of useful! Customer service skills, communication skills, working holiday rushes - this is useful experience to have! Do you have experience working with children?  Hospitality work? We want to know! Have you lead community functions for a local club or church or other social groups? All skills are worth mentioning  ^_^


    Degrees Are Not a Guarantee: For example: Having a tech-centric degree does not guarantee you a spot on the Tech Team. You may absolutely list your degrees! Hey, you spent a lot of time and money to earn it so we welcome you to include it on your application. We are not looking for any degrees in particular




    Hello! 

    The RTX Austin 2018 Guardian application link will be posted on my RT journal and announced on the RoosterTeeth twitter account. 


    Applications will be open for 1 month.

    Hello! Thank you for taking the time to reach out to me. :)


    No. Only autograph ticket holders may enter the Aurograph area.

    According to our FAQ document, those times will be announced when we get the show schedule. Also, those times will vary depending on what team you are on. :) 

    Please privately message me here on RT or send me an email about this matter. Thanks.

    I've been AFK for the 3 day weekend. Will be answering emails and messages tomorrow. Please be patient. :)

    Agent "The 'Stache" Wyoming

    Totally fair question! 

    As far as we (@sirNARVY and I) are concerned, everyone has to start somewhere. We accept applicants a good mix of applicants who have and have not been to RTX, have and have not worked conventions, and so on. Not having experience is not necessarily detrimental to your application :)

    My favorite character is difficult to decide on. I really love Amethyst because my natural reaction to disaster is a poorly timed joke. I also really like Greg because his outlook on life is amazing. Visually, I'm in love with the mysterious pink haired human woman that Pearl gets a crush on. OMG WHO IS SHE? I want to get to know her. Connie is everything I wish I could be intellectually and BONUS she still gets to act like a child. 


    This is not to say that I don't like the other characters. I could write for pages about why and how much I love almost very character in Steven Universe. 


    My favorite episode (right now) is Mr Greg. ALL OF THE SONGS and some closure on Pearl and Greg just pulls at every heart string. Pearl's song is tremendous on the emotions and is sung with such passion that I end up crying EVERY SINGLE TIME 

    According to @Bethany, tickets do not go on sale until Jan 9th.

    Guardian emails will be sent out before then :)

    Going to get a little deep on this, but I really like "Auto Erotic Assimilation". I'm trying to go spoiler-free here:  We see more of Beth and Jerry's very real relationship problems - Rick makes it with entire collective (including a giraffe) and that brings around consequences that you don't really see coming - Summer (who continues to become a more fascinating character than just the stereotypical teenager) calling out Unity on how its assimilation is morally reprehensible, but the reveal of Unity's pure motive is pretty neat. babble babble babble I could go on for pages...

    And THAT ENDING, THO.  The post credits scene is good, too :)



    We believe that everybody has to start somewhere, so we accept all skill levels. The most important thing to keep in mind is that we have over a thousand applications to choose from. Even the most experienced applicants might not get picked because we simply have too many applications. 


    There is no confirmation email. I am currently out of town til Thursday night. I will check then. If your app did not go thru, I will reopen the link for you :)

    Totally fair question. Dazzle me with your experience (you can list that in preference qualifications and in the why you want to be a Guardian section). Jokes get old after the 400th application. Make it easier on me (and a hell of a lot more beneficial for you) by showing me your passion and why you would make a great Guardian <3

    Hello! Thank you for reaching out to me!  ^_^

    Applications will be open for month (closing on November 14th at 11:59pm CST)

    After applications are closed, I will be reading (and rereading) all of the entries. I will also be communicating with my Team Leads and the RTX Events staff about who to choose. This process can take up to 2 months (being unemployed, I have to work around everyone else's schedule)

    No, y'all can't hope for any earlier than December. I will have the final count/acceptance list before RTX tickets go on sale.

    Thanks!

    Any and all teams can be beneficial for EMS skills. :) Medical emergencies can happen anywhere, so EMS skilled folk don't really have a central team. Unless absolutely necessary, Guardians don't led too much of a hand in those situations. We call the venue's emergency team/onsite paramedics to handle those situations. It mostly boils down to your other skills and how you desire to help. :) Let me know if that does not make sense or if you have more questons. Thanks!

    Per the journal post update (link):  PAs are not listed as a preference on the application simply because we receive 500+ requests each year for those positions. We will be picking PAs based on how you apply (your reasons for wanting to be a Guardian, past PA work for RTX and other shows, and your preference qualifications) 

    Check the Guardian group. There is a news post from a week or 2 ago that mentions the deadline :)

    DO YOU KNOW THE MUFFIN MAN?!

    | Asked by: Royplayer89 3 years ago

    I HAVE INTIMATE RELATIONS WITH THE DONUT MAN

    Keep your eye on RTXEvent.com and the RTX twitter account for up-to-date RTX news ^_^

    It all depends on what you want to experience at the convention. Going to a convention alone means that you get to focus on your schedule and allows you to go at your own pace (within the confines of the events schedules, of course!) Going to a convention alone doesn't mean that you won't go to community sponsored events or keep you from meeting people while waiting in lines ^_^

    If the answer to this is not on the RTXEvent.com website, then we don't ahve the information yet. Most likely won't have a date and time until closer tot he show ^_^

    That is an excellent question! I don't have the official answer, but my gut says that there will be an artist alley for 2016. Be sure to stay tuned to RTX news!

    Oh, hell. I came into WoW at the release of Burning Crusade! *LOL*

    I liked that you actually had to READ the quest text to figure out where to go. Leveling was slower so you felt a little more vested in your character. "Vanilla" WoW isn't better or worse than what WoW is today. Just different. And I agree with a lot of folks who say that the best thing about "vanilla" WoW was the joy and wonder of experiencing the game as a beginner. Everyone was a beginner. My favorite thing in the world was running Karazan. I still do it...as a level 100...solo just for old times sake!


    I adore WoW in all of its various forms (Except Cataclysm. But that is another rant for another day!). I don't play as often as I'd like, but I still love it. I've had my mage since I started. She was a blood elf...then a worgen and is now a panda. I play both alliance and horde (my heart belongs to horde) and there is still so much of the game I haven't experienced!

    Sorry, yo. I cannot give travel advice other than this: Do what your budget allows. :)

    DO YOU LIKE TOAST, TOO?!

    | Asked by: Royplayer89 3 years ago

    I LIKE MY TOAST LIKE I LIKE MY LOVERS - RYE AND COVERED IN MELTED BUTTER

    Disneyland.

    My favorite community at my favorite place in the world would be absolutely wonderful <3 Ride all the rides, take all the photos...get a little drunk at Trader Sams or Downtown Disney ;)


    I love the idea of the RT Community sticking an RT flag at the top of the Matterhorn! Ok, nto gonna happen, but we'd be a fun crew to get stuck on a ride with!

    If you changed your username between applying for and being accepted as a Guardian, YOU MUST MESSAGE ME ASAP. When messaging me, please include your old username so I can find you on the roster.


    The Guardian roster is housed outside of the RT website. You may not have been able to access the acceptance link because we could not find your username. When you change your username, I have ABSOLUTELY NO WAY OF KNOWING UNLESS YOU TELL ME. I then have to go and manually change the roster. it doesn't take a horrendous amount of time, but I'd rather be focusing on team assignments and training documents.


    Please, please, PLEASE do not change your username until after RTX - or, at the very least - Come and speak with me first.


    Thank you. <3


    I have NO idea. I was never this popular in high school or college *LOL*


    Thank you <3


    I surround myself with excellent people and learn from them. I am empathetic, optimistic, and try to react with a delicate balance of logic and emotion. I celebrate the good stuff and give myself ample time to deal with the bad. I try to be super nice to everyone :)
