      As most of you may know this weekend was RTX. If you weren't aware then i must ask, are you living under a rock? This year marked my third RTX in a row now and I've every year. This year though was hands down my favorite. The prior years i felt i got the main RTX experience. You know the whole going to panels and meeting the RT staff but this year for me was focus on friends. whether it be finally being able to put a face with a screen name or just making new friends.


      This year was my first year doing RT SideQuest. SideQuest was probably the best part of the whole event. Thursday was first the charity auction. The auction was kind of a big deal for me since im not really a person who dresses up but im so thankful to have done it. It was i fantastic way to kick of weekend. I met so many of my friends from the site and it was amazing. On Friday was the Sponsor Chat meet up (i guess it would be called FIRST chat now but whatever) and that was just a blast. i was amazed at how many of my friends that i had made from chat over the years were there. I was even able to talk to Adam Baird about the site and just life. From the Chat meet up i got invited to a Canada Day party. At first it was a bit strange but the party was a blast. I even ended up playing tippy cup which i had never played. I learned that Canadians party just as hard if not harder for Canada day as we do for 4th of July. Saturday was the Barlympics which was a blast. I never really took part in the games it was just more of a get together for me. I met so many people (most of which were Canadian.) Sunday was finally the RTX rap-up party and was spectacular. I played Mario Kart 64 with friends and even randoms. Again it was just a night of meeting friends and making new ones. Monday was my final day in austin. It was kind of a sad and depressing day but thanks to all my friends it turned out to be the best. I had lunch with multiple people. Went swimming with another group of people. Even went and saw the Austin fireworks with friends. There is a lot that I feel im missing so much but with everything going on that i cant help it.


      With a weekend full of amazing events and fantastic people i couldn't have asked for more. With everything that was happened this year with my step-father passing away and stuff i couldn't have been better. First off i want to give a big shout out to RTSQ and RT for giving me and everyone else and awesome weekend. Though i must give a massive shout out to all the amazing friends whether new or old for not just making this weekend amazing but being the highlight of the year. If anyone was wondering yes i am getting really emotional just typing this up. I hope to be able to keep in touch with all of you through out the year and i cant wait to see everyone next year (if not sooner.) Anyways till next year everyone. I LOVE ALL OF YOU!

      this year has been a weird one so far. Ever since my step-father passed away i have felt like im just drifting through life with no direction. i've never really enjoyed the town i which i live. there's just really nothing for me here. But recently my best friend came home from the navy for the first time. it had been great to see him. these last two weeks have felt like it use to. he talked a lot about about the navy and how he thought i should join. well i just took him to the airport so he can go back but ever since he mention how i should join. i cant seem to get it out of my head. its kind of something that keeps finding it way back. im just not sure what i want in life anymore.

    • The new year

      So far the new year has been a roller coaster so far. now forgive me on this if i ramble but im not very good at typing these things but i just have to get it out there. To start things off on the 5th of this month i lost my step father to cancer. He had been battling it for 3 years and a few times we thought he would win. On 2 occasions the cancer went away but it would only come back stronger and more aggressive. Around November things started to get real bad. He spent his last month in a hospital. It is the worst thing ever. His only hope was to at least make it to see his son graduate this year. There were a few people there for me. Mostly locale friends and family but i want to give shout out to @Armor3dXombi for being there for me.

      Now on to the good stuff. Sorry if that last bit was a bit of a downer. Just needed to get it off my chest. Anyways i just went and saw Lazer Team and it was amazing. It was everything i hoped for and then some. I hung out with a lot of other RT fan from MN thanks to @Newbs and @RTMN for working so hard to promote this. Personally i think @RTMN is one of the best groups out there. So again thanks you.

      Wells thats been kind of my year has started off thus far. I'm just hoping i've got the worst out of the way and it's only up from here. On to a good year.

      the final episode of RVB 13 just went up. it was an amazing episode with so much hype. i am truly in tears right now. im not a man who cries often but to see a character that has been just a larger part of my life be gone like that i cant help but cry. this was hands down one of the best seasons of all time.
