    • Dear Journal: Times Have Sure Changed. I am telling ya! (6/18/2018)

      1 year ago

      Section359

      Hello Journal,

      It has been quite some time. I log on and see that I had made a post from September 17, 2017. Eh, I do not favor that time of my life. I do not favor the person I was. Why? The reason why I dislike my way of living from that time was because I was in a rut. Doing the same thing, same job, not really caring. Times have changed since. Things sort of got better from the start of 2018. Things in my life have changed. I branched out from playing strictly Halo. I quit my job on June 15th, 2018. I have also met a new friend or two. Well, not "met," rather "get reacquainted with." From a year ago today... I do not want to think about 2017 at all. I know, censoring parts of my life. I wish I would have documented more of my school life on here. However, I had, at the time, a policy to not mention anything in my school. Sophomore year was my best year, I wish I would have documented. 2015 was actually one of the best years of my life! Things now, here in 2018... They are not as good as they were in 2015, but much better than both 2016 and 2017 combined. It is not worth living in the past and getting depressed over. Keep good memories, always document, and always move forward. I am rambling now.


      Something I am more amazed with, is that I have kept this same "Dear Journal" format for the past four years! Well, not amazed, but I am rather... Surprised. Though, the rates of these journal posts have turned yearly. Back in 2014, you could find my first one. You know, when we had the old website, with the old Karma system. I believe I had a little more than thirty Karma points. Do not quote me on that. However, what you can quote me on, is that I remember wanting to work for Rooster Teeth, It was a dream of mine as a 14/15 year old sophomore in high school. Though, times have changed.This profile, has not. I do not think I am going to change any aspects of this profile. I want to keep the tradition, with exceptions of these journal posts.


      Anyways, just for an information goldmine for my future self... Remember these dates. Some time between March 20th, 2018 and March 30th, 2018, I went to Clackamas, Oregon. April 15th,I played Doki Doki Literature Club, it became one of my favorite games. It also gave me some very bad emotional issues that lasted me until some time into April. Give it maybe two weeks or so in. June 15th, 2018, I had quit my job that I have worked for since October 10th, 2016.


      Anyways, I must go. That is enough for now. I will catch you all later!

      -Alex.

    • Dear Journal: **looks down in remorse** (9/17/2017)

      1 year ago

      Section359

      Hello Journal,

      It has been some time. More than a year. I came back, and read some old, old entries.When I was a Sophomore in 2015 doing these, I had and stuck with a policy that I made where I didn't mention school. Except for the few occasions. (Like the time when I was having a pizza party in my U.S. History class and some kid just took it out of my hands and put the teacher and I into shock.) Yep... Yep yep yep. Things change, things change... It really sucks, you know that? I know I'll be reading this in the future, and I am debating if I want to discuss my 2016 and 2017. To the future me, the only good thing that came out of 2016 was my Halo YouTube channel "FrostByte Entertainment." 2017, I graduated. I am hesitant to describe my 2016 and 2017 because... I was fake. Well, at least in April/May of 2016 I was rolling downhill. 2017 was my remorse phase how how badly I handled 2016. I was in deep remorse and in (political) anger up until May of 2017, then graduating High School in June 2017. I might as well say it for the books. In 2016, I got a job at McDonald's. Huge mistake. I also kinda liked a girl who was a hippy, and I was kinda liberal at the time. I deleted my FrostByte Entertainment channel to pursue artsy and hippie-ish things. All through summer, I befriended socialists, and I was one of them. I HATED Trump! Up until November of 2016, I was all for Trump and was gonna join the Army. Things fell apart when I became pissed off at my country, our military, and after 2016, I had very remorseful thoughts that I was a socialist and the things I said and did. So on top of me, an American citizen, getting pissed off at our government and media, I hated leftists, hipsters, and hippies, too. I had the biggest grudge. I was however, in strong favor of Russia and how they handled society. So I was won over by Russia and even from 2015 when I WAS myself; when I WAS normal, Russia still had an influence on my life. I just took it and made it go way out when it didn't need to. So pretty much, if you were a Russian or a person in their government, or if you were anyone who agreed with me, I automatically liked you. But in May of 2017, I had a little reconnect with my 2015 self. "What would Alex do?" Half of my 2017 was also me missing how good things used to be, how times were better, how things were... Better... I will never be the me/Alex I used to be. Those times are over. And it sucks. I wish I would have made more Journal posts on here describing my life. 2016 was the Pseudo Period and 2017 was the Angered Remorse Period.


      I am better now... Let's just pray and hope for a better 2018. I hope I make 2018 so unrecognizable from 2016 and 2017; it can't connect. Never change yourself for a girl, either. That's how I am who/where I am today. Always be you and never change.


      Bye for now... It might be... A while. I just remember daily postings... Good times.

    • Dear Journal: My animation project is moving on... (1/18/16)

      Hello Journal,

      When I say "moving on," then i mean that it's making progress! It's slow, and it isn't the fastest, but it's working out! Right now, I'm downloading some Halo: Reach and halo 3 maps along with additional assets. I'm also downloading Autodesk's 3DS Max and Maya Autodeask will be the next download. Again, my project isn't dead. it's just moving the speed of an Elephant from Halo 3. Anyways, I'm going to get back to work! See ya!

      Hello Journal,

      How have you been? I know I've been gone for a month. I am really sorry. Let me tell you what I've done since my last journal upload. Let's see... I've been ATTEMPTING to figure out Blender, I got Halo 5: Guardians, albeit I haven't been gaming as much, I've been trying to reclaim my social life, I have been trying to improve me, my (mental) health, and pretty much everything in general. So far, I have been doing Amazing! Recently, I have been getting rid of some really bad people in my life (*cough cough* former best friend that used me and made me feel depressed all the time *cough cough*) and I've been going really good since I've filtered the bad people out! Anyways, today I have learned how to texture Halo 3 Spartans in Blender. And guess what! Texturing Halo 3 Spartans isn't different from texturing Halo 4 Spartans! In fact, there is NO DIFFERENCE at all! I don't know why I was having such a difficult time! Wanna know my next step in Blender? Posing. I have to learn how to pose my Spartans. Anyways, I must go now! It feels good to be back! Bye!

      P.S. I really miss the old website. It was better and it was more interactive. i also REALLY miss the Karma system, too. :(

    • Dear Journal: Major progress (9/7/10)

      3 years ago

      Section359

      Hello Journal,
      You know, if I wasn't so busy / lazy every day, I would have far more posts on this profile than I do now. Anyways, today learned how to apply textures to .obj's in Bender. It was an accidental discovery, serendipity if you will, and now I know how to texture in blender! Turns out, I have lost the majority of my assets and textures when I was upgrading to Windows 10 so now I need to ask my friend / supplier SpartaLazor if I can re-download the assets that got removed. Guess what else happened! I got HALO ONLINE ASSETS! They're not the best assets in the world and they're definitely flawed, but I have them and they're raw and unedited, so I can't complain. So Halo Online assets can be scratched off my checklist of my Halo Animation list, but I got to get so much more done and I have much more to do. I'm telling you, my animation project will be BIG. it may or may not have the first impression, but I will eventually move to a bigger and better animation source and I will have an actual team. This show will be completely animated, like RWBY, but will have be a pure Halo michinima like Red vs. Blue. Anyways, I gotta go. See ya!

      Hello Journal,

      It's been some time since I've updated myself. I have been extremely lazy and I actually had other things to do. I basically was doing things with my life and I got to do many things. I played a lot of video games, watched a lot of YouTube, and I was kinda browsing this. I did buy all the RWBY bracelets and I currently have a post being shipped. SO what else was I doing while I was gone? Well, I celebrated my birthday which was on 6/18, and I was kinda doing whatever I could to earn money. I warned a decent amount of money so I guess I am "wealthy." I have been playing a lot of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and I had a lot of fun. I took some pretty sweet screenshots and I posted them onto Facebook. I really wish they would port Halo: Reach to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, though. That would be amazing. And speaking of Halo: Reach. that reminds me of my animation project. Yesterday (8/28) was then day when I first came up with my animation show. I first though on my animation project on 8/28/14, and a year went past, so it's been a full official year of thought process and gathering assets and software. But that will be another post for another time. I will say now that I have made a lot of progress, but this won't be a cheap or free project.Anyways, right now I'm downloading Blender and Photoshop so my Internet is kinda slow. I'm going to kinda switch topics now. Ugh, you know how I hate to mention school, especially on this website, but guess what. My summer vacation is very limited. I have spent it doing my own little thing and I was just kinda fooling around, but what do you expect? That's my summer vacation for you. School is coming, and it's coming really fast. I'll be a junior and I'll be super busy. I gotta go to school, do driver's ed, you name it. I won't have a lot of time to work on my animation project - gosh dang it, I wasn't going to talk about that. But either way, I will always find any spare time to work on my animation project and anything else I find important. Anyways, I think that's enough for now. See ya later!

    • Alright... About my animation project...

      3 years ago

      Section359

      I wanna make it happen. It's almost been a full year. Well, 3.5/4ths of a full year. i haven't moved a lot. But I really want to make this Halo animation project happen. I might start a GoFundMe page to help me out with all of this. My first time with the website didn't really go out so well. No one really helped. But I know where I went wrong with my kickstarter: I was too greedy and I asked for too much. I asked for $3K and I look back at that today and I pretty much asked for too much. What i need to do is go smaller and ask for smaller amounts of money. I can't go asking for $3K again. But I don't know. Should I try doing a kickstarter again? I honestly don't know. I might need to sell something of mine. Not my Xbox 360 though. That will play a major key factor in my animation project. And why don't I just make a Halo: Reach michinima of my idea? Well let's see... Halo: Reach cannot handle ALL of Forge World to be loaded and Forge ready at once... I don't know if Halo: Reach could handle more than 100 people (players in this context) at once, and I will need to mod the living heck out of my Xbox just to make it do what I want it to do. Even then, it might explode. So I will need to animate it and use programs for assistance.And speaking of Forge World, I will need to download a world building / creation software so I can "add on' to Forge World's existing land. My animation project will need ALL of Forge World. Even parts that don't exist in game. That's right; I used my imagination to create non-existant locations within Forge World. Impressive? I guess so. Eventually, I will need Halo Online assets. Weapons, armor, vehicles, you name it. And something about my animation project, it will be using diverse assets. So one soldier could be in a Halo 3 era and could be using an MA37 Assault Rifle. (The assault rifle from Halo :Reach.) Or a soldier could be in a Halo 5: Guardians era and could be using armor from Halo 3. Or a soldier could be in a Halo 2 era and could have a DMR from Halo: Reach. Or a soldier could be in a Halo Online era (which is in between Halo 3 and Halo 4) and have armor from Halo: Reach and weaponry from Halo 2. That's what i mean by asset diversity. Anyways, I'll see you all later.

    • Thinking rationally about my animation project.

      Section359

      I haven't moved a lot with my animation project. Only a few inches, but not a lot. I wanna give MAJOR props to http://roosterteeth.com/user/SpartaLazor for giving me the appropriate assets from the majority of the Halo games. I do not have all of the assets yet, but what i have should pull me by for a while. What I'm going to need (asset wise) is a level from Halo: Reach (the place where's Noble 6's helmet was last seen), then I'll need the Pillar of Autumn from Halo: Combat Evolved. (Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary's Pillar of Autumn lever would be preferred.) (And http://roosterteeth.com/user/SpartaLazor , you don't have to get me those assets of you don't want to. It's all up to you.) What I'll need then is Halo: Reach's Forge World map, Halo 3's High Ground, Halo 3's Standoff, Halo 3's Foundry, Halo 3's The Pit (low possibilities though for the pit though), and various other vehicles. Then I'll need to buy Photoshop for the 3D design, I'll need to learn how to use Blender, even though I want to completely animate the characters with my own body. Like with a (markerless) mocap suit. Then I'll need Maya and Poser Pro. So why haven't I done any of this yet? Funding. Funding is a MAJOR issue in my life right now. I'm saving for some games (Halo 5: Guardians and Just Cause 3), and a $1600 laptop. Here's the laptop's story: I want an MSI GT72. It's a very powerful gaming laptop that can handle almost anything. Well, at least many things. it has a Nvidia GTX 970M, so that can run many programs and editing software. And it's a good gaming laptop. So what I said about the laptop basically translates to: an All-In-One laptop. So the games, and the laptop will take me a while. YouTube doesn't pay a lot, but I promise you, I'm trying. A 16 year old is supposed to be poor, right? I guess it all depends. Anyways, the funding will be a major problem. But what have i been doing all of this time? Ever since I was (supposed to) "die" from Rooster Teeth forever, I was doing other things during my time away from the website. I didn't earn a lot of money, no, but I went through a personality change. I even went through depression. I tried not to spend a lot of money because I was saving it. And keep in mind that I don't really play a lot of video games anymore, so I didn't play a lot during my time off. I went into politics but then I had to stop because I was corrupting myself. So I came back to the website and i am going to try to return back to my old personality. So here I am, typing this post. Anyways, i really went off topic there, but I was telling you want I did all this time (off the website when I "died" from the website.) So yeah, my animation project. Next month will make it one official year since the ONE little thought of my animation project started in my head. It's been one full year (almost, at least) and I haven't moved a lot with the ideal project. I have the entire story arch planned out. I just need to design and animate it. t sounds easy if I put it that way, but it really isn't. Like I said, it's going to be really expensive. I will need to put time and dedication into this.

      I'll meet you in my next journal post.
