      Hey all. It's been a while.


      I'll try not to waffle on for ages on end, but basically I'm starting my journalism course tomorrow (for those who don't know: I'm starting a journalism course tomorrow!) and, seeing as it's a full time, fast-track 18 week course, I'll have little time to do a few things - one of them being coming on this site.

      What does that mean? Well, obviously I won't be around. I know I've hardly been around as it is for the last few months, but that's been down to being uber-busy with work, getting stuff for my course and outside-of-the-internet life events. But yes, I shall be departing for a good while.

      I imagine it'll be very difficult to keep up with RT/AH content too, which will be strange, but I'm sure I'll be able to find one evening in the week to watch some favourite things like LP Minecraft, Go!, Versus etc... and I'll have bus journeys to start listening to the podcast again, and I'll keep following RT's twitter account so I won't be totally out of the loop.

      Hopefully once my course is done I'll have a bit more free time to come back in a greater capacity, and I hope to check every once in a while to see how you're all doing but, for now, this will be Thom signing off.

      Keep doing what you love, keep being the awesome individuals that you are and, as always: Keep Moving Forward.

      Thom

    • So long, old site

      Thom

      It's been a good two years on here.

      Naturally I'm not around as much as I have been in the past (and will be even less so in about 6 weeks from now, but that's another topic for another journal) as people I've been extremely close to have moved on with their lives, but I still check your journals every so often to keep up to date with what's going on in your lives.

      I'm sure the new site will help to increase RT's popularity further still, and be more in line with what's required of a modern day hub for such a wonderful company.

      Here's the required 'end of site screenshots of mine for keepsakes' bit:

      I doubt I'll make many more journals before the one I mentioned up top, so I hope you're all doing well, and do as Monty said: Keep moving forward.

    • Mersey Comic Con

      4 years ago

      Thom

      Hey all, hope you're well.

      I took a trip into the city centre of Liverpool (my hometown) yesterday to go to a Comic Con-esque style event called, well, Mersey Comic Con.

      It's not an official MCM sponsored event, like the ones in London, Birmingham, Manchester et al, and it had a couple of teething problems (that will no doubt be tweaked in the future) but all in all it was pretty awesome.

      I'll write a proper journal about it sometime this coming week, and I'm already considering to MCM Manchester in July.

      That's all for now anyway. Stay awesome peeps!

    • Off work for a week

      'Sup peeps.

      Light Night on Friday was pretty cool. I took in a few events, spoke to a couple of new people (albeit my brother's girlfriend's friends) and got a little too drunk, but hey, you aren't my parents. Shut up.

      anew.gif

      I have a week off work! Woop and rejoice and all that!

      tumblr_mtnmfjtTvi1qk546lo3_500.gif

      I plan on seeing Mad Max: Fury Road (the hype is real), practising my short hand skills for the course I'm starting in September, going to the gym, catching up on some RT/AH vids and hopefully getting back into gaming. I don't think I've sat at my Xbox 360/One and played a game for a good few weeks, so I'm going to rectify that horrible statistic.

      Alright, as you were, people.

    • Liverpool Light Night

      4 years ago

      Thom

      Tonight I'm continuing my attempt to become more sociable, take in new experiences and hopefully meet new people, and I plan on doing this by heading to my home city's Friday extravaganza named 'Liverpool Light Night'.

      I imagine the vast majority are wondering "What is Light Night?" (No, please no "WHAT IS GAME NIGHT!?" shouts kthx) , so here's a brief description:

      'Light Night, Liverpool's one-night arts and culture festival returns to illuminate the city for a sixth year on Friday 15 May from 4pm until late as the launch event of One Magnificent City.

      You, your friends and your family are invited to explore Liverpool as our world-class galleries, museums and public spaces stay open late for a free showcase of the city's arts and culture.

      Follow your own trail of unexpected happenings as the city centre comes to life with street performance, light projections, exhibitions, walks, talks and hands-on activities for all ages.

      The festival is staged across more than 50 locations and with over 100 organisations taking part you can enjoy special events at venues including St George's Hall, Walker Art Gallery, Central Library, The Bluecoat, FACT, Liverpool Cathedral, Camp and Furnace, Constellations and many more.'


      I plan on going to view art pieces, drink beer, interact with strangers, eat BBQ and maybe even take part in some hands-on exhibitions, and you know what? I'm going to have a bloody good night, regardless of whether I'm on my own or not.

      No, Anna, this is not a Frozen journal. Away with you!

      Ahem.

      It's been a couple of weeks since I did a proper life update-y journal, but really not a lot is different from what it was. Working on my inner game/self help stuff is going well so I feel happier and more content than I used to be. I just have to keep working on myself and continue to grow and mature, but that aside work, keeping fit, everything else is the same as it was a few weeks back.

      There is an exception, however.

      About five weeks ago I found a fast-track journalism diploma course in my home city of Liverpool and it sounded ideal for me, what with me wanting to become a journalist.

      Long story short, I met the course organisers today. They're both the coolest, most awesome, down-to-Earth tutors I've come across, gave me a ton of information on the course and really want everyone who takes the course to become the best journalists out there. It certainly shows, as they've never had someone fail the course either!

      Suffice to say, I have felt this excited about my career prospects in about five years. I finally have a path to walk towards the goal that I set myself a year ago, and I have mentors along this path who I know will advise and guide me towards it.

      I'm so full of excitement and motivation right now, and it feels absolutely amazing. September cannot come soon enough.

      P.S- I hope you're all well! We need a catch up, so hit me up in the comments/messages section to tell me what's new with you! smiley1.gif

      It's going to be weird not seeing him in RT/AH videos anymore, but you have to follow your dreams and passions in this life. Make the most of it, Mr Narvaez Jr.

      You'll always be welcomed back with open arms. smiley12.gif

    • It's sunny! It's a bank holiday!

      Thom

      And I'm stuck indoors with this horrible coughing cold thing that's going around Liverpool.

      giphy.gif

      No matter. I guess. I didn't want to go out and enjoy the sun after being in work for 7 hours straight...

      On a more positive note, at least I have time to start Halo 2, finish The Sculptor and re-watch some Marvel films ahead of Avengers: Age of Ultron's release.

      Hope everyone's doing well!

        Hello, equally new friend. smiley6.gif I'm Thom, 26 and from Liverpool in the UK. Obviously.

        okay cool hahaha, well hello new friend:)

      • Thom

        5 years ago

        No, not that I'm aware of. Being adopted just means that you have someone to message/talk to for advice on fitting into the community, or asking any questions that you might not know the answer to.

        It also means you have a friend on here no matter what, and someone to have a laugh and a joke with. smiley6.gif

      • Snowriel

        5 years ago

        that is cool, but is there a rule that I must put that on my profile or something?

      • Thom

        5 years ago

        Sure. It's always cool to meet someone of the same age on here. I don't mind adopting you. smiley1.gif

      Hey, I hope it's okay to have done this, but I made a forum post in the welcome centre inviting everyone to come watch a stream I'm doing today, meaning it to be less about advertisement and more about community-building (because hanging out in a twitch chat is always fun :D ), but if that wasn't cool, I'll gladly take down the post.

        Haha well I've been around for over a year now, so I'm not entirely new to the community. smiley1.gif

        I use to watch the Halo Fails of the Weak videos every Friday when they were released, but it wasn't until the Minecraft LPs came out that I really got into RT/AH.

        Since then I've caught up on everything apart from the early podcasts, and last September I took the plunge and joined the site. smiley0.gif

        Yeah I took that into account. What I meant was that there's threads at the bottom of the page from four days ago.

        I thought it would be bustling with lots of threads as other forums seem quiet in comparison... but hey ho!

        Haha thanks!

        Tiny bit disappointed that the Sponsors forum is just as quiet as the others though. I thought it would be dead busy, especially with you having loads of mates. I guess I put 2 and 2 together and got 57!
