    • End of the semester

      I've been wanting to play Transformice more often now. I'm quite rusty so I end up dying a lot. I miss the taco room. :(

      But it's the end of the semester, and I'm about to graduate. I'll be happy to be out of school and on my own. Well, until the novelty wears off. But I will ironically have more time/energy to devote to gaming and RT in general, as I won't have to worry about all these damn projects I'm working on. Two portfolios, an 8 page paper, and an animation to finish.... not gonna be fun. I have one last week here and then I'm FREE!

      San Diego is not happening. However, Boston likely is. PAX East next year? Perhaps.

      Edit: I am very tired. Long week. :(

      I am moving there, probably at the end of the summer. I will be in a much larger area... maybe I'll finally be able to meet the RT staff at conventions and such! I am excited.

      Yeah, I'm back. I'm graduating from my school soon, and after going through a breakup, I'm crawling back to RT a broken woman. Okay well not really broken. I'm really tired, I was awake until 4 last night and woke up at 6:30 this morning.

      But to catch up on things, I've been incredibly busy with school, but it's starting to slow down now. I'm sure that within the next few weeks it'll pick back up again for finals, but then I'm out of school and I'll be starting my grown up life like an "adult". Frankly I don't think it'll be able to come soon enough.

      Tell me what's going on in your lives. I have missed RT. :(

      What a crazy, stressful semester. I have a feeling I didn't do well. I'm still worried about a bunch of things.

      But, I have nearly a month off to relax. Thank god. It's been too long.

    • Birds and Producers

      8 years ago

      Stephbanana

      Hey all, I'm sorry I haven't updated this in a while. I've been really busy. Mid-terms just ended and it's been a particularly stressful semester.

      One of my professors is leaving the college after this semester, and he's been so grumpy and demanding lately that I've been scrambling trying to get everything done for him... He's trying to hold me to really high standards trying to push me into this project that I'm not interested in anymore. He's got faith in my that I'll make a really good producer and wants to see me succeed, and I'm sure I'll appreciate it later. But at the moment I'm so bogged down in everything else that whenever I show up with not nearly the amount of stuff he wants he's always disappointed. He expects me to be a full time producer when I'm taking five classes. I don't know what I'm doing anymore, I feel like I'm failing everything, and I don't have the focus to bring him an hour interview with a professor, several student testimonials, a full review of the footage I logged with my cameraman Cody, plus a revision of a section in my proposal for the class. I'm dragging my feet. I hate going to that class because I always feel like I'm going to disappoint him no matter what.

      My physics class, however, is much more fun, because I actually feel like I'm learning something. I feel like I'm understanding and doing well in that class. It's easy. The professor is fun, interesting, and engaging.

      On another random note, I seem to be connecting with birds as of late. Within two weeks, I've picked up two different birds - a male scarlet tanager just before he migrated south, and a common female sparrow. I found the scarlet tanager with my friend Brandon when we were walking out of one of the buildings on campus to go get some lunch. I saw the bird sitting just outside the door on a step. Brandon was like "Don't step on the bird!" because it wasn't flying away. We stooped down to get closer to it. Brandon reached out and touched it, and as it still wasn't flying away, I scooped it up into my hands.

      I cupped it in one hand and covered it with the other to keep it warm. We continued walking down to the dining hall, catching the attention of people along the way. When we got to the dining hall, a woman said that she could bring it to the wildlife center, since she was heading in that direction anyway. We found it a box and lined it with napkins, and she took it away with her. I saw her later in one of my classes and she told me that the bird was fine and they released it.

      The second bird I picked up yesterday has accidentally flown into a window and stunned itself. Some friends and I were standing around outside the dining hall after dinner when a girl behind us asked us if any of us had gloves, because a bird just flew into a window. It was on its back with its wings flapping madly, as it struggled to get up, fly away. Hard to do when you're concussed. So I gently flipped it back on its feet and held it in my hands until it calmed down. It stopped flapping wildly quickly and just sat in my hand, so I tried to warm it up as my friends and I deliberated what to do with it. We thought that maybe it had a broken wing or foot, but we weren't sure. I spotted my physics teacher who was smoking a cigarette. I asked him what I should do with it. He said that we'd have to let nature take its course, but the most humane thing we could do would be find it a box to keep it warm. So he went into his building and searched for something to put the sparrow in. As we waited for him to come back, the bird perked up a little and began looking around some. He came back with a Dunkin Donuts styrofoam cup. He was satisfied with this container - he held it up and said "it's small, and it's insulated!" Just as I opened my hands up a little bit, the sparrow flew out of my hands. She headed toward a big pine nearby.

      I seem to have a thing with birds. I'm not sure why, but I've always managed to connect with them. Two Easters ago I managed to pick up a fledgling goldfinch.

      I played in a tournament with my college team yesterday. We lost every game we played, but I honestly expected that. We had learned about the tournament maybe 3 days before and threw together the team at the last second. Most of our usual starters weren't available, so we went up with a team of just 7 people. Barely enough to play. We had no subs, so our life would going to be very difficult, considering we would all be playing with no breaks against teams with plenty of subs. We also hadn't practiced at all, as we just formed an official team about 2 weeks ago. We were lucky however, as an independent player from another team joined us, so we had at least one sub.

      Despite losing, the team had a great time and we learned a lot about strategy and the game from the other teams. Since we now know what we're up against, I think the next tournament will go much better. We're forming a practice schedule and getting together our roster.

      not very many people knew... I had 3 RT hats, one lost, 2 stolen. i wore them to work everyday at wal-mart. people saw a rooster and teeth, took at cockbite, and got interested. other people saw it as a way of saying, "i put cock in my mouth" so i had to instruct everyone there about Rooster teeth, so im responsible for adding about 120 fan populace from oklahoma and about 7 from NC (from my time in the air force)
