      Steven

      So I know about 8 dozen million people have already made RTX journals, but I haven't been posting that often lately so let me have this. But yeah, the weekend was a total blast. @Barbara and @Gus worked their absolute asses off to make sure the event was as successful as it was. Not to mention the incredible work of the entire rest of the planning and event staff and of course, the whole Guardian team, notably @SailorTweek and @SirNarvy for heading them all and doing a fantastic job. It all came together wonderfully. I not only saw many familiar faces of some of who are now some of my closest friends but I also met some incredible people for the first time too. Ever since RTO, I've come to make a whole new group of friends, many of whom before then I'd mostly ever only spoken to on Twitter.

      People I want to specifically mention for that latter category are @Connor, @BenBen, @TinaDayton, @Commonmasses, @Neefertiti, @dracoizumi and @Ray. I also got to meet briefly @Tora, @Miexriir, @trianglegod, @Bunny, @Keiryspoerl, @Franco, @JasonMB, @RSharky44, @Hellsangel, and so many others. All extremely high quality people.

      Julia and I also saw a good amount of @Jordan, who is an awesome guy, and you should tell him that. He's even an excellent photobomber:

      I was super excited also to meet many of my Roosterspeak friends in person, some for the first time, some for the 8th time. People I hadn't yet met were @MaryFairy, @Monica, @Erkan, and many others that I unfortunately don't remember the names of at this moment, as there were just so many people to talk to and meet and you can't spend enough time with every person and remember everything and really get to know them, which is unfortunate.

      Also, major props to @GB330033 (Grady) and @Count3D (Dom) for putting together an incredible lineup of Sidequest events. The ones I saw were all wonderfully run and professionally organized. Bang up to him and the Spectres.

      Lastly I of course saw a whole shit ton of people who I've already met and love, and there's way, WAY too many to start naming all of them, but you know who you are smiley12.gif . People I saw the most though were @Newbs, @ChrisBotkin, @Lamchopz, and @Suburbanfire, @Andy, @Dylon, and also properly met @DoctorScrubs. Awesome hanging with you guys, as always.

      I also got to spend (almost) the entire time with @Julia, to whom I celebrate two years of dating with tomorrow! It has been the best two years of my life, and I know there are many more to come. smiley12.gif

      But I digress. The panels we went to were Achievement Hunter, Glib Shark, Internet Box, Bottomless Wit, Mega64, and Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures. All were amazing, and I can't wait to watch many of the ones I missed after they get put on Youtube.

      Other notable moments from the event:

      smiley9.gif Playing Divekick against Julia and @Dylon, with each of them controlling a button. They kicked my ass.

      smiley9.gif Running into Ray somehow a million times, even outside the convention center. I think he was stalking us.

      smiley9.gif Speaking of Ray, him and many of the aforementioned people saw me walking towards a panel and called me out to the hundreds of people waiting in lines around me. I had ice cream and a cup of water in hand and was not adequately prepared.

      smiley9.gif Crepes are still delicious from Cafe Crepe. Eat there next year if you can.

      smiley9.gif Accompanied Dylon to change out of his Spiderman suit, at which point he threw a toy snake he had been given over the stall to mark his territory.

      null_zps7533a674.jpg

      smiley9.gif We waited a hour for some hot dogs at Casino El Camino. They did tell us in advance, but it was still ridiculous.

      smiley9.gif Got to eat breakfast with @Barbara and Garrett from Mega64 Monday morning along with @Lamchopz and @Suburbanfire. It was my first chance to actually sit down and have a relaxing chat with mah sis, so that was very pleasant.

      smiley9.gif Julia and I received tiny squishy chickens for doing the chicken dance from The Behemoth. I named hers Humphrey, and mine Timothy. Both of their tails broke off smiley2.gif

      smiley9.gif Playing ping pong poorly with Julia at the Barlympics SQ events.

      smiley9.gif Taking pictures of myself instead of others (by secretly flipping the camera facing me). Hilarious stuff. Example:

      null_zps0d2b72f5.jpg

      Anyway, there was so much more that could be packed into this journal, but I've run out of room. I also did not mean to offend anyone I didn't mention by name, as there are just so many of you it'd be impossible. But you all made the experience incredible and I love you all for it. Until next year!

      I will be writing a little something-something at some point soon (likely tomorrow), but for now, take this picture as a teaser.

      Ah, family.

    • Lessons from today

      6 years ago

      Steven

      Let it known that the following are true, based on my experiences at the airport today:

      smiley9.gif When you take a passport to the airport, make sure it is in fact, YOUR passport, and not your mother's.

      smiley9.gif Check your flights online before you leave for the airport to make sure they are in fact, still in existence.

      smiley9.gif While it is always better to be safe than sorry, it turns out that the 4th of July is not a busy travel day as I assumed, but is in fact the exact opposite. One person in line at security and zero people in line at customs.

      Despite all of this however, I am on my way to Austin! Just getting in a bit later than originally intended. See everyone there! smiley12.gif

    • What different in Canada?

      Steven

      Well, now you know!

      Almost all of these are universally true, with a few exceptions. I would never pronounce bagel as "bah-gull".

      Steven

      So tomorrow I officially begin my co-op term with Citizenship and Immigration Canada, as a programmer. It's still technically part of my school program, but I get paid, so I consider it a job. I even got some spiffy new clothes!

      (Yes this still needs to be ironed, just got it)

      So yeah, wish me luck! smiley1.gif

        Well Julia, as well as some close friends, are coming into town throughout the month, so I'll be seeing all of them and doing stuff. For my actual birthday, just a nice dinner out with the family.

      Would you be interested in voicing one of the main characters for the comic I'm working on for Roosterspeak? I'm planning on making a few short videos for intros/outros of the chapters.
      It wouldn't be anything long or complicated, just a few lines each time.
