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

      2018 ala OneNote style!

      As in "I totally typed this out on my phone in OneNote while on this long-ass commute and am finally getting around to posting it"


      Traveled to Las Vegas with a group of goddesses. Saw the sights, walked until my feet were mush, and got to see the majestic animals at Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden.

      Attended Drag Brunch and fell in love! Also, I fulfilled a weird movie-like fantasy of sitting in a jacuzzi tub full of Lush bathbombs with the suite windows open while sipping gin at 2 in the morning because I could. I enjoyed Vegas. It was fake, beautiful, and desperate...and the food was terrific.


      We did a kinda-impromptu Disneyland trip for a friend's birthday celebration. I discovered that renting a wheelchair for a day is a great way to enjoy the Happiest Place On Earth when you re-sprain your foot. Chris and I rode Guardians Break Out for the first time since the re-theme and FELL IN LOVE. Enjoyed the ride so much that we bought the hoodies! 


      Emerald City Comic Con was uneventful until I got to pet a corgi wearing an Evee hoodie.


      C2E2 was all about working for my friends at Zen Monkey Studios. Spent all weekend selling Rick and Morty and MST3K merch. Absolute heaven!


      Was not accepted nor considered for 4 dream job-centric positions. A lot of job heartache the last 3 years, guys. It's worth mentioning because I allowed the disappointment to permeate through a lot of stuff I was working on. It affected my mood, my patience, my eating, my physical activity. and my self esteem. My soul looked like Stalone at the end of Rocky. 


      A weird twist of events - we had noticed that my student loan payments had not been processing and I thought that meant that the previous company had sold the loan again. To my shock, the payments had not been processing because they were paid off. In a gigantic rush of relief, I fell to the floor and sobbed. Kids, college is brutal and is a choice that haunt you for the rest of your life. Make good choices and be true to your goals. 


      I cleaned my desk 4 times and it still ends up looking like a Hoarder's Paradise.


      More lessons in patience, empathy, and validating other people's feelings. Lessening of knee-jerk reactions and assessing problems calmly. These are not lessons lightly learned, but are super rewarding and makes interacting with the world around you much easier.


      I was tired of everyone around me saying the phrase "I am going to start working out/eating better/taking care of myself beginning next week!" and hired a personal trainer. I did the 3 month session and it was WONDERFUL. I would do anything to go back, but this current schedule is holding my fat ass accountable to continue personal fitness on my own.


      I have severely curbed my drinking. I go for months without alcohol. I still enjoy it, but I enjoy it as a treat and not as a form of sleeping aide.


      Speaking of sleep, I stopped drinking and went towards CBD tinctures for sleep. I have my insomnia under some control and am sleeping better than I have in years. Some of the tinctures I use have a little THC in them, so I only take them at night. Best sleep ever and I haven't woken up in the throws of an illogical panic attack ever since. Also, I don't need it every night! 


      I turned 39 and got the Gravity Falls DVD box set <3 


      RTX was huge and wonderful and positively affirming!


      PAX West was an absolute blast! Working for the Rooster Teeth Games booth alongside @kriss and @Cricket and @sirNARVY was such a shot of energy to the soul. Bendy and The Ink Machine was a hit with the attendees and I hope that you all have a chance to play it!


      My Uncle Rob got remarried and it was such a wonderful ceremony. The man deserves all the good things.


      I GOT A JOB - https://roosterteeth.com/post/51917086 - and it's fun and easy and exciting but the commute can suck an entire bag of goat farts. I'm seriously considering changing my cell phone plan to an unlimited data situation because I need that entertainment for 2 hours each way -

      Ok. Depending on traffic, it's more like 1.5 hours each way, BUT STILL a gigantic chunk of my time and the evening traffic is really the fucked up factor. Getting home at 6pm to have only about 2 hours of downtime before I have to be in bed...bah humbug, y'all.


      We had a huge family trip to Disneyland at the end of October and that wacky @mrarcys joined us! 4 fabulous days celebrating Halloween and a little bit of Christmas at my favorite places int he entire world! It was such a terrific and exhausting trip that I would gladly do again in a heartbeat. One of the few times I have actually enjoyed watching people in our group fight over who was going to pay the dinner check! *LOL* Good God, Lemon...I wanna go back Oh, and @mrarcys has been official adopted by the entire Frank/McDowell clan.


       @WSM was so incredibly kind in gifting me the Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76! I had a lot of fun in the BETA and I am loving the power armor helmet displayed on my mantle. Fallout 76 is a hot mess of a game full of crushed hopes & dreams BUT I'm still having a lot of fun with it. Again with that whole being more patient thing. Yes, lots needs fixing. Yes, it's not a complete game. Yes, it was irresponsible for Bethesda to release the game in such shitty condition BUT I have hope that it's getting better. I've been having a lot of fun playing it with @sirNARVY. Here's hoping for more improvements to a long anticipated game. Hey...at least we always have New Vegas and Nuka World...


      We were fortunate enough to see the MST3K LIVE tour stop in Seattle. I got a ton of great photos because our seats were INCREDIBLE. I can sing the praises of Jonah Ray and Rebecca Hanson all damn day. The live show was an absolute thrill! If it comes around again, I'm springing for the VIP package. The new season - THE GAUNTLET -  is a fucking scream. Watching Felecia Day and Patton Oswalt chew scenery to bits is a ray of sunshine. Great jokes, great songs, great movie choices. Overall, the season is "PrEtTy NiCe!"


      Still painting my nails every week. It got a little weird trying to make room in my new commute/work schedule, but I am making it happen!


      I've gotten into the habit of drinking tea every night before bed. My tea of choice: Moonlight


      Other 2018 things that happened - 

      Discovered the wonders of The Good Place, Brooklyn Nine Nine, and fell head-over-heels in love with Disenchantment. That theme music is my JAM.


      There was some bad stuff and some tears and some whining, but most not really worth typing about. I had a lot of good shit going on in my world and I want to share the good more than I want to share the yucky stuff. Now, the yucky stuff has value. We learn from it. We grow from it. It feels like it never ends, but we have to remember the good stuff. 


      It's like working retail - we have neutral customers who come and go without altering our mood. Then we have the kind and grateful customers who come in and appreciate you with a "Thank you" or an "I always love this store!". But when a walking shit tornado enters your space with demands to speak to your manager or entitled declarations of being granted a magical discount or "hurry up, I'm double parked and my life is hella more important than anyone else in line"...it fucks up your day drastically. That one garbage person messes the whole vibe and we dwell on that garbage person. We forget the good people and the neutral people...maybe because the news never focuses on truly good things. It's all about outrage and how to be more outraged than everybody else. We grab onto that like some sort of marathon baton made of noble gold when it's all really made of broken glass, feces, and bees. React to the bull shit, but find your inner power to compose yourself and make something happy happen. 


      All of that easier said than done AND not a fix for every situation, truly...but it really can happen for most daily situations that we allow to balloon into Facebook sized emotional fiasco and it will make a grand positive difference in your life.


      Being an adult - or a functioning human being, really - sucks, but you got this. <3 You can still be silly, creative, and a little nuts and still make adult decisions. 


      I know other cool shit happened this year. I've been busy, so my brain is a little mushy :)


      What Does 2019 Look Like?


      MORE STREAMING ON MIXER - I'm working on reshuffling my schedule around this commuter shit show and 2 Dungeons and Dragon campaigns. In fact, I'm planning on streaming tomorrow (Sunday Dec 30) with time and game TBA. Follow me on Twitter for updates on that. 


      My convention schedule has been severely reduced. I find no joy working crews for the gigantic shows anymore. With the exception of RTX (which I will work and love and cherish until my dying day!), I will only be working booths. I will be working for Zen Monkey at Emerald City Comic Con! Other than ECCC and RTX, who knows what show I will end up at! And maybe I can COSPLAY! Who wants to see a chubby almost 40-year old wear a funny costume because I KNOW I DO <3


      No Disneyland trip on the schedule *pouts and kicks rocks*


      Working on my webpage. I am not a web designer...like, at all. Stumbling through that as best as I can :)


      I turn 40 in July...which is totally weird because I still don't understand what 40 is supposed to feel like or be or whathaveyou. Maybe a theme birthday party is in order...


      Ok. I typed a lot. I have to type about other things on other platforms - RTX stuff! woot! - and get ready for hosting a D&D game tonight.


      Much love to you all <3

      I'm so nervous! What if I don't make it?

      I know that it is easier said than done, but don't sweat it!  barbara Lots of people apply and we can only accept so many. If you are not chosen as a Guardian, fret not for being an RTX attendee is full of adventure and joy!

    • RTX 2019 Austin Guardian Applications ARE OPEN

      8 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

       tower*** APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN *** tower<---- CLICK THAT THING! 


      Howdy! My name is Mary McDowell. I am your co-Head Guardian. I rule with an iron fist made of silly putty. I have been in charge of the RTX Guardians since 2012


      My partners-in-crime are @sirNARVY - co-Head Guardian since 2012, a knack for strategic planning and the guy who pokes me with a broomstick when I crawl into corners - and the illustrious @mrarcys - online training wizard and lover of horrible movies. 


      The three of us work closely with RTX Events staff and directly with the HUNDREDS of Guardians we will accept this year. <3 Yes, HUNDREDS. 


      **All returning Guardians, regardless of position, must apply if they want to be considered for 2019. 

      Pardon my bullet list-like ways of covering information, but this is going to be a long post.

      RTX 2019

      July 5-7

      Austin Convention Center - Austin, TX

      Guardians onsite for Thursday July 4 - Sunday July 7


      Wednesday July 3 is an optional work day (bag stuffing, team meetings, badge & shirt pick-up)


      So, you want to apply to be a Guardian?

      RTX Guardians represent The Community, the Company, and the Convention. The RT Community is pretty incredible and we aim to bring in the best (and those aspiring to be the best) community representatives into our Guardian ranks. 

      We are looking for willingness to do the tasks assigned to you, positive attitudes, customer service, patience, and a genuine desire to make the convention experience rock for everyone. We strive to make the show a safe place for all fans.

      You must be comfortable in crowds/crowded spaces, can deal with emergencies with a cool head, and willing to work with your teams. We have a variety of jobs that range from super exciting to oddly mundane...but all jobs/tasks are important and necessary so we expect everyone to put their full effort into every task.


      Guardians are VOLUNTEER. You get a crew shirt, snacks, unique job experience, and a chance to really connect with the Rooster Teeth Community <3 Guardians are responsible for their own hotel, travel, meals, and parking.


      Being a Guardian is HARD WORK. I want you to say that sentence out loud and take it to heart because it is very true. You ask any past Guardian and they will tell you that very same thing. You will have lots of fun and hopefully end the weekend with a terrific sense of pride and accomplishment, but it takes a lot of hard work from the RTX Guardians to make this show successful.


      Applying to be a Guardian

      Please fill out the application thoroughly and seriously. A cute comment here and there is fine, but all joke applications will be disregarded - this goes for beginners and veterans of RTX. Fill out the form, please. Prove to us that you can follow directions.


      You must be willing to check the RoosterTeeth website every week. Although Guardian news comes in random bursts, we require that you check this site frequently. It is our home base for information. Team Leads may utilize email, off-site chat (Discord, GroupMe) and we will continue using our private Twitter account. However, all official news and Head Guardian announcements will be made here on Rooster Teeth. We will NOT have a Tumblr, Facebook, or reddit thread/page/group for Guardian news/communication.


      Be sure to TRIPLE check your information. Names, emails, and usernames are often misspelled. It's difficult to get in touch with you if you submit an application with a misspelled name


      We do our best to honor your assignment preferences, but preferences are never a guarantee. We cannot have 150 Tech Guardians. @adam would crucify me.

      Your assignments in previous years are also not a guarantee for preferences


      No worries if you lack convention experience! We accept all skill levels. Y'all gotta start somewhere, right? Tell us if your worked retail, Disney parks, summer camps, business events, child care, personal assistance, office management, scout leading, project management, extracurricular activities...EVERYTHING that involves dealing with groups of people.

      Thousands apply, hundreds are accepted. Just keep that in mind.  


      What do Guardians do?

      We are the support structure of this show. We are the Oompa-Loompas of this magnificent candy factory. We make this show run from Wednesday at bag stuffing to the moment we close up on Sunday. You are all part of an award-winning, record-breaking team! Below is a list of the previous Guardian roles. The list is not exhaustive, and things may have changed. It is a good reference, though. Please do not badger Mary about wanting one instead of the one you’ve been assigned without a very good reason.


      • Center Stage – Responsible for the operation of Center Stage located on the Expo Hall floor. Work tightly with the Tech Guardians to make sure that game consoles are up to date and working. Tech knowledge is a plus.

      • Exhibitor Services (Expo) - Assigned to a group of exhibitors in the Expo Hall. Responsible for making sure their RTX experience is the best it can be. Hospitality, customer service (the exhibitors are your customers), and a little bit of line management

      • Freelancers - Freelancers are the most flexible Guardians. From guarding a door one minute to  managing the Guardian Sanctum (breakroom and dispatch) to wrangling a crowd of attendees the next, these Guardians go where they're needed. Good for people who are a jack of all trades and want to move around a lot. Really. A lot.

      • Panels - Responsible for the smooth running of all the panel rooms including load in/out of attendees, counting attendees in line, manning Q&A microphones, and making sure the panel starts and ends on time. Works with tech and the convention staff to make sure panelist tech needs are met.

      • Personal Assistance - Assists RT employees  and special guests for the duration of the convention. Help staff members when they are out in the public areas of RTX. Must be able to maintain communication on a professional level with staff/crew/special guest, keep track of schedules, and know where to obtain items (food, drink, and so on)

      • Registration - Assists with attendee, staff, VIP, and exhibitor check in. Is the first face an attendee sees at RTX. Must have great customer service skills. May get reassigned during the late moments of RTX as needs arise.

      • RT Store - Help run the RT Store. Help attendees find merchandise and keep the tables stocked. Help maintain the RT Store line.

      • Response - Work with EVERY team to help with crisis management, line management, and crowd control. Must be able to forcefully/professionally tell attendees who are breaking the rules to stop. Does not get physical with attendees. Does not carry weapons. Role is to observe, deter, and report ONLY.

      • Tech - Tech Guardians work with Center Stage, Panels, and other areas of RTX to make sure tech needs are met. Responsible for the streaming equipment, queue room A/V, game console setup at Center Stage and for select Panels. Tech is NOT responsible for theatrical rigging or sound boards.

      • Signature - Handles the designated Signature area. Line management, customer service, checking badges & signature tickets

      • Specialty Rooms - Responsible for dense collections of RT content typically in a small space such as RT Experience and Achievement Hunter Lounge. Duties include being custodians of the content and company valuables, customer service for attendees visiting locations.

      • Happy Hour / Evening Events - Much like Freelancers, they do a little bit of everything during the evening programming.

      Things that Guardians DO NOT do - (regardless of what you do as a day job, certified in):

      • Theater rigging

      • Sound design

      • Operate camera equipment

      • Forklift operation

      • Physical security

      • Event scheduling

      • Event content production

      • Content selection and/or placement

      • Establish event and/or attendee policies

      If you have any questions, please reach out to me! You may privately message me here on RT, use the website "question" feature (if you are alright with the answer being posted publicly), or you may email me: sailor.tweek@gmail.com 


      Please do not reach out to me on Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook - consider this an exercise in following directions

      Much love and good luck! <3



      EDIT - Applications are OPEN - added link to application

    • NEW JOB GET!

      9 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

      I have a new job!


      I started on October 1st at Lionbridge Technologies as a Game Test Associate. Lionbridge is a Microsoft vendor, so I have a cushy cubicle over at Microsoft Studio A. 


      I test out various Xbox related things for 8 hours a day at 5 days a week. The pay is minimum, but I'm not doing this for the money.


      I needed to feel like I was contributing to society somehow. I needed out of the house. I needed to work. My goal was to get a job that I could do without any of that holiday shift bullshit. Since I refuse to go back to retail, this was a very difficult goal to attain. But here I am! This job is neat, my crew is pretty laid back, and I have all the free seltzer water I can drink!  *BURP*


      This has obviously affected my streaming schedule.


      Talk about a heart breaker right there. Not being able to stream lately sucks a hot pepper, but I'm trying to figure out a new schedule. I need to find a way to stream around the in-bed curfew I have placed on myself on account of having to get up at 5am to commute to work. The bright side to my commute is the city bus that I take from Bellevue to Redmond is PRIME POKEMON GO playing time. I could totally do a livestream from my phone to Mixer while playing Pokemon Go, but that seems a little uncomfortable doing that on a public bus.


      So, I have some serious calendar rearranging to do. I want to continue to stream! 

    • RTX 2018

      11 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

      It's been a week since we closed the doors on RTX 2018.

      I can say that not only was this the smoothest RTX ever, but it was also the smoothest show I have EVER worked. 


      I wanna gush for pages, but I'm exhausted IN THE BEST WAY.


      Thank you all for making RTX so terrific. The Guardians who worked their asses off and showed the world how powerful and wonderful they are - the attendees who emit the essence of convention positivity- the content creators coming together to bring substance to the show - the RT Events team and the other planners and check-signers for RTX - Mixer for streaming the action and those of you who watched from home. I'm forgetting departments/teams, but know that my heart is full of love and appreciation for you all.

      EVERYONE who has their hands in RTX made this all happen. THANK YOU


      Thank you to @sirNARVY and @mrarcys for being my rocks, our logic center, and the weird levity in between serious discussions about bullshit.


      I love this show more than I can explain. RTX is the most important event in my world. I'm so happy that this year was stellar. I walked out of the ACC upright, proud, and almost ready to do it all over again the next day. 


      I felt the very same pride, community love, and appreciating that I did walking out of RTX 2011.


      Thank you all for the BEST RTX EVER...



      ...OF ALL TIME.

    • I totally forgot

      1 year 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'm on the phone with my parents and my Mom asks "what do you want to do for your birthday?"

      I sighed, "I dunno. It's a ways away, so we can talk about it next week"

      There's a pause and a polite throat clear. 'Mare, honey." my Mom says "Your birthday IS next week. On Monday. What do you want to do this weekend for your birthday?"


      And I'm totally about to argue with her...like, we're not halfway through July already!

      Except, we totally are halfway through July already.


      "Ooooooooh shit. Um..." I try to come up with a response that isn't straight up swear words.

      And fail.

      " Fuuuuuuuuck. Damn. Nooooooo. Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit." I whine. "I forgot my own birthday!!!!"


      So, next Monday is my birthday. I'm either turning 16 or 39. 

    • My Body

      1 year 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 of a month and a half ago, I am 240 lbs.

      Heaviest I have ever been.


      I blame living a comfortable life - I blame complete lack of will power - I blame stress eating - I blame being so poor back in college that I'd got for days without eating and now I want to eat everything - I blame food being so yummy.


      But no matter how many times you turn that Rubik's Cube of excuses, it all boils down to one very important cause/factor - lil' ol' me.


      I look at photos of myself from over the last 6 years and gasp. 

      "What the fuck happened? Why did I do this to myself?" 

      "Why do I follow the path of self destructive food when life gets hard?"

      "Why do I take things out on my body? MY BODY DIDN'T DO THIS TO ITSELF!"


      Seriously. Why do I do this to my body? Why do I punish it when it has done nothing wrong? 

      And after asking myself these questions - that only I can answer - I find myself more at peace with my body. I don't need to forgive my body...I must forgive my mind and then apologize to my body.


      We are now on the road to recovery. Personal training and better food choices.

      Portion control is still my biggest challenge, but we're working on it. 


      I am over the horrifying notion of being "fat". My body is awesome and I will from now on treat it as such. I now look in the mirror at myself with grand confidence and affection.


      My body is beautiful.

      It is soft and a little scarred and has callouses.

      It is warm and full of energy. 

      It houses my mind that is full of creativity and lessons and curiosity.

      It holds my heart; full of passion and love.

      Sex is AMAZING.


      So I want to take care of my body. I am taking care of my body.

      And the view from my mirror gets better every day.


      This is not a prayer for getting thin.

      It's an action plan for treating my body with respect, taking care of myself, and maintaining the temple that houses my very soul.


      But buying smaller, cheaper clothes would be fucking heavenly.

      Here's to better things  heart



    • Bullet Point Update

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

       towerI don't know why all of a sudden our internet service turned to absolute shit this year. I know all cable companies are creepy monopoly monsters, but I had never had a problem with this area's cable choice until just recently. It is fucking with my stream schedule and keeping me from RTX tasks - 2 ACTIVITIES THAT ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME


       tower Started week 3 of personal training without getting sick! YES!

      My everything is sore, but I feel like I can take on the world. My sleep schedule has improved as well!


       tower My wonderful friends @kriss and @OddLittleDuck have ascended to Rooster Teeth staff stardom! Words cannot express my love for you ladies and how much you inspire me. It is such a relief to see pillars of our Rooster Teeth Community become employees and still represent us. All the love and luck to you both!

      Please send me free stuff.


       tower  I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm excited for a new Fallout game as long as it's NOT PVP, I don't have to find my stupid baby, and Preston Garvey is far off doing his own thing. 

      For reals, though...very excited to see what this new installation has in store. If it turns out to be weak sauce, there are tons of terrific mods out there for Fallout 4!


       tower  Please stop me from buying more dice for Dungeons and Dragons.






    • Week one of personal training

      1 year ago

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

      WOW.

      MY BODY IS VERY MUCH ASKING WHY OH WHY.


      This has been eye-opening for me. 


      Really, the entire month of May has had me on a weird, spiritual roller coaster.


      After realizing that everyone around me says "Oh, I'm going to go start looking for -Insert self-improvement plan here- next week" and that hypothetical next week never arriving for them ... I pretty much said "Fuck this. I need a change NOW".


      I walked in to a personal training facility, had a consultation, rearranged the budget, and here I am 1 week in and feeling A WHOLE WORLD OF DIFFERENT. Sure, I'm not automatically fit and ready to bench a car - BUT the fact that I started and am loving it is a huge deal.


      I need to do better with my eating, but my physical activity went from *not much at all* to guided and nurturing activity with lots of walking in between training sessions. I'm happy about this.


      Not only will the possibility of being more fit, stronger, and OKAY OKAY A LITTLE THINNER BECAUSE THAT WOULD MAKE SHOPPING SO MUCH EASIER keep me going with this program - it's also the idea that I paid for 3 months in advance.


      That's the fucking carrot on a stick right there.


      Here's to new habits!

      I was wondering about the announcement of who will be guardians for this years RTX. I have been waiting eagerly for an email about my participation during the event for a while now. Anything you can share to bring light to this will be greatly appreciated. :) Thank you.

        It takes a very long time for me to read 2300 applications and even longer to decide who is accepted. We will announce before RTX tickets go on sale. That is all I know. smiley13.gif

      Happy Valentine's Day!

      I've gotta say, following you on twitter and seeing how much you are loved and impact this community has been a wonderful experience in my 2015. I hope I get the chance to shake your hand someday and thank you for making others' lives infinitely better with your joy and love and badassery. Much love!

      Hey boss!

      I'm hoping that you have had a wonderful Valentine's Day in Azeroth! I'm just here to spread warm fuzzies that I have to offer!

      You may not know it, but ever since you, Chris and Barbara accepted me into the Guardians in 2013, my life has been changing for the better. My experience from working at RTX these past two years has helped build up confidence in myself again, allowed me to build up my social skills and given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people in the RT Community. I can never thank you guys enough! I hope to see you again at RTX 2015 or the LT premiere, which ever may come first.

  • Questions answered by SailorTweek

    That would be a question for Rooster Teeth! ;)


    Although getting hired is never my goal, it would be pretty awesome to be considered. I do my thing because I love the community and support the company <3

    Usually PAX Enforcers applications are located on the PAX site closer to the events. I've never been a PAX Enforcer, but anyone out there wanna give some info on this?

    This is a hard question! If it wasn't for Emerald City Comic Con, I would not be where I am today. I learned everything I know I about convention volunteering from ECCC. I made life long friends, met some of my childhood heroes, and did things that I never knew I could do!


    BUT my favorite event for content is PAX Prime. I love games (be it board, card, or electronic pretty moving pixels) and I love trying out new things! Meeting game devs and listening to them passionately talk about their projects is inspiring <3

    I have to say DOOM.

    My uncle Rob brought the game to our house and installed it on my family's first high-end computer (that didn't have a black and green screen!)

    He taught me how to use DOS, showed me how to play the game, taught me all of the cheat codes, and even showed me how to install the .wad files to turn all of the monsters into Barney the Dinosaur and Beavis & Butthead! DOOM was gory and cool and action packed! I was too scared to watch horror movies or read scary stories...but DOOM made me feel brave. I'd see the scary thing sand SHOOT THEM IN THE FACE. And the best was the fact that my parents were fine with it. They knew my brother and I would never turn violent because of a video game. They'd even watch us play! DOOM was my gateway...and Super Nintendo was my Yellow Brick Road ;)

    I wrote a journal post about this the day the emails went out:


    If you have NOT received an email:

    * Check your spam filters - The email will be from Rooster Teeth

    * Give it 24 hours - mass email is not always instant.

    * If you still don't have an email by tomorrow afternoon - please message me here on RT so I can figure that mystery out


    If your spam filter does not have an email from RoosterTeeth.com, then send me a private message here on RT. :)

    I hear the "rule of thumb" for booking a flight is 60 to 90 days before the event. I'd wait on hotels to see if RTX has any deals. But it really all depends on your situation (what hotel you want, are you staying during the 4th of July holiday, your trio budget).

    Typically, no. Shoes are required in most event venues. Not only is this a hygiene issue, it is also a safety/injury prevention issue. This is not something that Guardians will enforce, but the venue staff will ask you to put shoes on. There are some great tutorials online for invisible shoes and/or intigrating shoes with socks for cosplay. I highly suggesting searching for those ^_^
