      SamWaldo RTMI Admin + RTX Guardia

      And another year of RTX is done. Whoa.


      A lot of things happened this year. Some good some bad. I'm sure that if anyone was on social media on Friday then you might have seen the internet in all its glory. But we prevailed. We moved on, and we did our job.

      This was my fourth RTX, and my fourth RTX as a Guardian. It'll be weird going to London as an attendee instead of a Guardian, but new experiences are good!


      It never fails that I have an absolute blast at RTX. At this point, RTX is 100% about seeing my friends and connecting with new friends! Being able to work as a Guardian let's me give back to my friends so that they can enjoy the convention to the fullest! And to give back to the company that let me make such great friends to begin with!!!


      It seems that due to a couple of reasons, next year is going to be different. I'm not sure of what differences, but it's clear that there will be some changes. Not to say these are bad changes by any means, because sometimes change can be good! I'm just hoping that every decision that was made and that will be made are holding our community standards and our individual standards! We must first help ourselves to help others!


      I love everyone that I work with as a Guardian, I love all the new attendees I meet, and I love my group of ladies that I continue to room with for each RTX!


      Already can't wait for RTX 2018! <3 Hope to see everyone's lovely faces next year! And even if your particular lovely face won't be at RTX 2018, I still love you!

    • Where Are Thee, Forums?!

      2 years ago

      SamWaldo RTMI Admin + RTX Guardia

      So I got to thinking. I miss the community that came with the RT forums. I was able to meet so many new people that way! People that I'm still friends with now! So what did I do? I actually went back to the RT Forums for the first time in almost a year to check it out!


      What did I find?? Forum threads that interested me, but the last post was months ago. It made me sad again. Now, this wasn't every thread I visited, but it was large number of them.

      So what am I going to do? I'm going to post in as many threads as I can (if they interest me of course) in hopes of bringing back the golden years! 

      I want new friends!

      I want GIF wars!

      I want more family! <3 <3 <3

    • New Adventures in my Life

      2 years ago

      Disclaimer- TL:DR


      Life has been a serious of weird turns for me. I never had a clear vision of what I wanted to do. Even in college I chose the major of Communications because it offered a variety of different types of classes for me to try. After graduating college without a clear vision of what career I wanted, life took a turn. Two weeks after graduation, my grandmother moved in with my family. She has Alzheimer's and couldn't care for herself any more. Because my parents both work, it fell onto me to take care her. It was a choice I made, not one that my parents or anyone forced on me. I did it and currently do it because it's easier for everyone, less stressful then if she was in a home, and cheaper. 

      Because of this responsibility, it's made finding a job that can work around certain hours hard. Luckily my parents are kind souls and do pay me minimum wage as to make sure I have money and pay back those awful student loans. But I'd rather not have to rely on them and be able to find a job that can work with my schedule. 

      I'm still at the point in my life were if I wanted to pursue an occupation, I'd have the means to do so (if not always the money). So over these past few months I have been thinking about all those childhood dreams I had about my future.


      A Vet - Although I love animals, it's not something I am still interested in

      A Princess that knew Kung Fu- Well...who didn't have those thoughts watching Sailor Moon?? Plus my parents just bought me a katana.....

      An anime character- Okay, who still doesn't want this?!?!


      After reviewing my list, the thought hit me. I could technically become an anime character, if I was a voice actor. 

      I was never too keen on preforming on a large stage. I've always had stage freight. But thanks to some radio classes in college, I didn't have that same fear preforming into a microphone, even if I was surrounded by classmates. I then started thinking about all the moments in life that I've used voice acting. Improv games that my friends enjoy, all of my D&D campaigns, and my previous knowledge from college. 

      After some more research, it was clear that this was something that I could legitimately do.

      So, my friends, after years of not knowing what I want to do with my life, I finally found a path that makes me happy. I signed up for classes at my local acting studio and have begun my journey. I'm excited to see how far I can take this. Obviously it's going to be tons of work, and rejection is going to be apart of the job, but I'm ready to see what happens! 


      And that is how word vomits happen guys lol


    • Adding Another Year

      2 years ago

      SamWaldo RTMI Admin + RTX Guardia

      Well, it's official, I'm once again a guardian for RTX!

      This will be my fourth year as a Guardian and I couldn't be happier! It's weird, I've never even been an attendee at RTX, but I don't regret it at all! It's been an amazing experience so far, even if we don't get paid for it, other than a t-shirt!


      So congrats to everyone that got accepted! You deserve it! (Unless you're a piece of shit, you know who you are  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye) It's a rewarding experience for sure!


      Now, if you didn't get accepted, don't lose hope! I know lots of people that were turned down but were accepted in later years. It's all about answering questions to the fullest and honestly. Just spend time over the next year to spice up that resume and try again! So many people apply to be Guardians and it's a shame that not everyone can be allowed in, but always have faith that next year is your year! :)


      Now, let the hype begin!

    • It's so cold in the D

      It's been two months since I posted a journal that wasn't a news post. I need to fix that! 

      Whats new you ask?

      Well, Christmas is almost here and I still have a ton of shopping to do.

      I got engrossed in watching Critical Role.

      My sassy grandma Betty is still sassy!

      My dogs are as cute and fluffy as ever!

      And I watch too much anime and play too many video games.


      All in all, my life is the same! 

      Oh, and I'm cold! It's about 19 degrees here in Michigan with talk of it getting colder. Brrrrr

      (Snuggles up in blanket!)


      So how's everyone else doing?

    • RTX Guardian Applications Already?!?!

      2 years ago

      SamWaldo RTMI Admin + RTX Guardia

      Woo, it's not even January and guardian applications are already in discussion! In case you missed it, RTX 2017 Guardian Applications are being opened for submission tomorrow October 15th! 

      RTX is by far one of the things that I look forward to every year and it's a great way to catch up with friends and make new ones! As one of my favorite conventions of the year, it's hard to believe that 2017 will be my fourth year attending. It's gone by so fast that I'm in awe of everything that has happened to me in these past years. 

      My first year attending RTX, I was attending alone. I wasn't really involved in RT Michigan yet, and none of my RL friends were Rooster Teeth fans. So in order to make my parents feel more at ease in going, I decided to apply to be a guardian. I figured it would be a good way to make friends and then I would for sure being doing something, as opposed to the awkwardly walking around and eating alone in my social awkwardness. Because I'm a very socially awkward person. I always have been!  simmons So I attended RTX 2014 as an Exhibitor Guardian and made friends with such great people to the point where I've been rooming with them every since! Not to mention the other great friends I've made within the Expo Guardian team! #ForeverAMember

      Of course for RTX 2015 I was going to apply to be a Guardian again! After all the fun I had last time there was no way that I was going to stop going! This time around I was a Personal Assistant Guardian. Talk about work! As a nerd, I haven't walked so much in a long time! But thanks to this new job, I was able to make even more friends! #ThePartyNeverEnds 

      Then comes RTX 2016, in which I was a PA Guardian again! This past RTX was the most, eye lifting? No, it was just the most experienced time I've had, so it felt like I was able to hit all the spots that I really wanted to go! So it was a bit nostalgic for me! Even if it was only the third year! I did visit some new places, and there was still some people that I was able to make friends with! I think I'm running out of friend limits?? ;) But thanks to my experience from past RTX's I was defiantly the most prepared I've been for an RTX, which made my experience smoother and more open for random shenanigans!


      So now it's time to get ready for RTX 2017! I'm so glad that I've had the opportunity to make such wonderful friends through the Rooster Teeth community! Whether it was through RTX or RT Michigan or just a random person on the street! It's amazing to see how this community has changed over the years since I've joined the community around 4 years ago! (Don't worry, I've been a RT fan much longer) I'm so grateful for the amount of friends and love that I've gotten because of this community! It's hard to believe the amount of good friends I've made because of Rooster Teeth! I love you guys! You're awesome! You're beautiful! You're lovely!  two_hearts two_hearts two_hearts


      This post just got too long and and too mushy! Bless you if you read all of this.

      I love you guys!

    • D&D Adventures

      2 years ago

      SamWaldo RTMI Admin + RTX Guardia

      That moment when you're sad that you can't play D&D until next week because your DM has RL work to deal with and was putting it off just to play D&D. 


      I've become a true nerd. I never though I would be attached to such a game like this, especially since we've only had a couple of sessions. But when each of your sessions lasts around 5-6 hours you start to make real connections with your party! Even more so when you thought a member was killed in the very first session only to have to wait until next session to see if they're alive or not.


      This is my life now. Don't mind me.

    • Lots has Happened!

      What's up everyone? It's been quite sometime since I made a journal update, so I figured it was time to let everyone know how I'm doing!

      This past weekend I attended MeggaXP and had a blast! It was a small con but that didn't stop such amazing cosplays! Arryn Zech and Efren Ramirez (aka Pefro) were there! Efren even became our DJ for the Cosplay Ball/Dance Party!

      My next convention is Youmacon Nov 3-6! It's a much bigger convention, with about 15,000? people I think? Not quite sure on the number but I'm looking forward to being jammed with fellow cosplayers in the people mover! yang-32.png 


      Also, I love these emojis! They are too cute!


      My past month has been quite chaotic so hopefully I can keep you guys updated a bit more often from now on! 


      So what's new with you guys??

      Happy day full of warm and fuzzy things Sam! You are really super cool. You are one of the most fun people to hang out with, and I think it's a little weird/amazing how well our interests and personalities mesh. In a good way, of course. Alright, time to even out this gushiness with a valentines card.
