      Hi Mary, With the Guardian Assignments coming out soon, I wanted to check to make sure you and your team are doing ok and you haven't worked yourselves crazy? Thanks for everything you all do :)

      Answered: May 14, 2018

       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! 

    • What I Got

      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 in denial about my depression.


      There are days when I don't want to get up.

      Or brush my teeth.

      Or get dressed.


      And there is absolutely no logical reason for me to be feeling like that. We all say that "depression LIES" and it totally does. Depression makes me think:

      "Why bother getting dressed? No one is going to invite you anywhere."

      "Why bother cleaning anything. It's just going to get dirty and cleaning your house is not going to make everything better"

      "Why bother reading? You read too slow."


      What the fuck does that even...I mean..."You read too slow" should keep you from reading a book?!


      And my brain instantly answers with a calm "Yes, because depression is lying to you...but also you do read slow BUT that's just a thing about you and not something dire...so buck up and read a damn book at whatever pace"


      I'm all cool with talking about my anxiety. Weird shit triggers it and I have to deal with it and I'm okay with that. I've got stuff to help me cope. My anxiety rarely keeps me from doing things.


      But depression is just a big jerk that sits on top of your head like a big jerk hat and tells you big jerk lies to make you feel like a big jerk. 

      I don't have have the kind of depression that points me towards suicide or self harm. I hate pain and I love life. But...man oh man...does depression just make me want to sit around all day/week and feel like garbage.


      A few things that I still FORCE myself to do when I am depressed:

       cabooseDrink water - hydration always. Being dehydrated will make you feel 100 times worse.

       cabooseOpen the windows - that fresh air. I'm lucky to live in a place with very little traffic fumes

       caboosePlay music - doesn't matter what kind. Or a podcast. I highly suggest Judge John Hodgman.


      A few things that I make sure that I DON'T DO when I am depressed:

       church1Skip a meal - I make sure I at least snack

       church1Drink alcohol - I have stopped drinking except for social events. This means that since I stopped drinking back in March, I've had a total of 4 drinks - all at C2E2. I wasn't drinking to feel or drinking to forget or drinking to cope...I was actually drinking to help fall asleep. That's a huge WTF. I will absolutely have a drink at a party or when we are out friends, but no more home drinking and no more late night nightcap drinking

       church1 Spend too much time online - it's a weird fucking world out there.


      Now, NONE OF THESE ARE CURES. I'm researching local therapists. I am not one to say "Oh, just live a healthier life and you'll be fine!" Part of living a healthier life is seeking help, but the context is usually spoken to the tone of "If you just went hiking and ate more salads, you wouldn't be so sad!" Fuck me running, as if anything was that easy!


      There are 2 things right now that are helping me beat that nasty depression.

      The first is RTX GUARDIANS - working on RTX Guardian stuff is my favorite thing next to going to Disneyland. I love these guys. I love this show. I love this staff. I LOVE RTX and RTX GUARDIANS. I love figuring out teams placement and policies and new problems and working with @sirNARVY and @mrarcys is a huge blessing. Major props to @shelbyengquist of RTEvents. She has incredible convention experience and is such a joy to work with <3


      The second is streaming online. I started streaming on Mixer last September and am loving every moment. There are some weeks when my schedule gets all wonky, but I am grateful for when I get to go online with a game or a creative activity and just talk to the viewers. I feel no pressure to be "amazing"...I get to be me. Just chill and naturally goofy me.

      If you feel like dropping by or want to know more on what I am about with dat Mixer life: Mixer.com/SailorTweek


      I'm doing what I can.  doc


      I don't really have a format for this post. I just really wanted to get some stuff off my chest.

      My stream on Monday ended with coloring in a Bob's Burgers coloring book and creating a slogan for the week. It had to be Louise-themed and this what I came up with:


      Slap this week in its stupid face

      Totally something Louise would say and it's totally something that will take me through the week.

      I hope that it's a motto you can use.


      Much love, peeps. Thanks for letting me brain dump <3


    • 15 years old...or young...

      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

      At 15, I was a sophomore in high school. 

      My baby teeth hadn't totally fallen out so my upper lip would get caught on my teeth when I smiled. I was excited for high school. I was making delightfully weird friends in theater class...like this really tall, barrel-chested, blonde guy named Chris McDowell...


      Being 15 wasn't hard for me. Sure, there were growing pains and some hard lessons...but I had a blast!


      Rooster Teeth being 15 has got to be hard. 

      This teenager has to please so many people. 

      This teenager marches to the beat of its own drum...and its drum is a drum set that has so many percussion instruments.

      Baby...puberty is ROUGH, but you make it look gooooood 


      15 years of innovating the idea of online content before YouTube was even a thing. 

      15 years of community building

      15 years of some ground breaking hits (Red vs Blue, RWBY, Achievement Hunter) and a few misses (Nature Town, y'all)

      15 years of a brand of wackiness that rarely feels forced and oddly relatable

      15 years of Austin Texas love


      And in between grew moments of pure joy - Lazer Team funding, every single RTX, Extra Life

       

      Growth - millions of fans, 300+ employees, stubborn community members who won't leave the site regardless of the structural integrity of the website  barbara


      Support - supporting LGBTQ community, raising money for childrens' hospitals, the comfort of Always Open throwing taboo out the window. And although it was never the goal, RT has become positive role models for some. 


      I love you, Rooster Teeth. You amaze me...you comfort me...you frustrate me...you trust me...


      My life without you would be the kind of different that I don't want to think about. The RT Community is my extended family. You all have changed my life for the better. The responsibility given to me as Head Guardian is a something I take very seriously...it's very precious to me...the company & the community trusts me with this role and I work very hard to go the extra mile to empower my teams and make RTX the experience of a lifetime for everyone. Thank you for allowing me to have this experience. Thank you for not getting sick of me.


      Happy Birthday, Rooster Teeth. 

      No, you're not "just getting started". You are solidly here in the now and will never go away.

      Thank you so much, Rooster Teeth. You're a good kid.


      (Edit- spelling errors...duh)

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

      Going radio silent this week.

      Federal court. Early wake up. Long days. Shitty commute. 

      Blah blah blah


      Other than some smart ass Twitter blurbs, I will be mostly offline for the week. This also means no Mixer gaming streams from me til next week :(


      Hooray for civic duty...


      Do not get me wrong: this has been super fascinating! It's a really interesting process and I am learning a lot about patience.

      ...but I would rather be home and not wearing a bra and crying over how horrible my LinkdIn profile looks. 

    • demonseaweed asked SailorTweek a question

      I don't know if people have asked this already but are Guardians going to be mailed their badges? Or do we pick them up at the convention?

      Answered: Mar 6, 2018

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

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

      ... * looks around * ...

      I think that we are all done with RTX 2018 Austin Guardian emails.

      If you did not receive an email, let me know in a private message or via email and I will deliver the good news or the bad news about your application status. I hate giving bad news BUT remember all of the things I said in this journaland know that I appreciate your willingness to help <3


      Thank you all so much for your patience. I have no idea what went wrong, but we always strive for new problems every year! *canned laughter* But for reals, you've been a great crowd. 


      RTX 2018 London applications are live! The RTX London Head Guardians are @Boomer and @Arileya so please point your London-centric questions towards their lovely directions.


      So...* looks around again *...

      Can I talk about my Disneyland trip in my next journal post?

      And maybe talk about how I'm now on the board of a local community theater?

      And Emerald City Comic Con is next week!

      AND I want to do some AMAs on my Mixer channel very soon!


      But first....sleep.


      ...* slips back into blanket fort *...


      * snores *

    • OGFrey asked SailorTweek a question

      Good evening! I had a question regarding RTX 2018. Do you have an idea of when Guardians will be assigned to their groups? I'm assuming sometime after everyone completes the Guardian Task.

      Answered: Feb 20, 2018

      That information is located in our group FAQ thread! :)

    • ASH_DUSTER asked SailorTweek a question

      I have a few questions if you have the time: 1. Preferred flight brand and when flights should be taken i.e. Delta airlines arriving on july 31st and leaving august 7th? 2.Specific hotels or anything?

      Answered: Feb 20, 2018

      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. 

    • Resending those Guardian emails TODAY!

      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

      Again, I thank you all for your patience! It's been a weird week and a half!


      Rooster Teeth is resending Guardians today. Emails will be resent to everyone who came to me for help and to all accepted Guardians who have not yet responded.


      I know this was tough, but y'all got through it like champs <3


      Huge thank you to RT Events, RT Tech, and the RT Marketing teams for all of their help. 


      If you have questions, please read my previous Guardian-centric journal posts before shooting me a message  barbara



    • Another Guardian Email Update - update timing, resending emails

      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

       towerRT is working on a solution and is hoping to resend the emails next week.  matt  An update about this will happen next week before or as the emails are being resent. There will be details as to where these emails are coming from (as in what email address to look for)


       towerI have been logging who has not received emails. You are all on a handy spreadsheet for me to give to RT when it's time to resend emails!


      *IF YOU STILL HAVE NO RECEIVED AN EMAIL *AND* YOU HAVE NOT CONTACTED ME*

      Please use this very simple form if you have not received and email

      Fill out the form instead of messaging/emailing me, please 

      This form is for folks who have not contacted me yet.


       towerI have to clear the air after receiving a handful of "Can we get an update now?" messages in my RT inbox:

      I can only give updates when I get information. I understand that everyone is "freaking out", but please understand that I am doing everything that I possibly can as a volunteer to get you all situated. RT is taking this very seriously, but finding solutions takes time. I hate to be so serious here, but folks have got to keep calm and trust me. I will get you the information as soon as I am able to post. The bottom line is - your patience is appreciated because waiting sucks. Oh, and don't message me asking for an overall update now that I have established that updates will be posted when there are updates to post.  ruby Asking me about an update before I post an update will not make an update magically come faster.


       towerOn that note - I hope to have an update for you all on Monday or Tuesday. We need the time between now and then to get more people on "resend the email" list.

      Also, I will be away from my computer Thursday thru Sunday - out of the state and heading to Disneyland! I will be back at my keyboard Monday evening. 


       towerAgain, we will get these emails to you BEFORE RTX tickets go up for sale


      Thanks, peeps  heart

      I didn't realize our birthdays were so close. I turned 35 last Monday, it's definitely weird, I still don't "feel" like a grown-up, but my driver's license definitely says otherwise.

      We need to get us a pair of these:
