      2018 is almost over and it has been one hell of a ride. Last year I was typing my year in review as someone who had only been on the RT site for two months. I'm now over a year in and it has been the greatest decision I ever made.


      I've never told the story of how I started watching RT. But after everything that happened this year, it feels right to tell it now.

      I started watching Rooster Teeth content in 2015. Honestly, though, it feels like a lifetime. Back then I was freaking out about my educational content exam and my best friend said, "Hey, watch this Minecraft video with me." 


      I had no intention of watching a game made for 8 year old boys. But a bunch of 8 year old men absolutely sucked me in. 


      Gavin Free was fucking adorable. 


      Michael Jones was angry. 


      Ray Navarez Jr. was aloof and hilarious.


      Jack and Ryan were one voice intertwined.


      Geoff Ramsey was orchestrating the chaos. 


      That day six men took my mind off of a test that would determine my future. 


      When I took my exit exam, RWBY was there to cheer me on.


      When I fell into a depressive episode RVB showed me I wasn't alone.


      When I had the worst year of my life in 2017, Camp Camp was there to just make me laugh.


      So much has changed since that first minecraft episode I watched. People have left. Even more have joined. I started gaming, branching out, because of the fun these complete strangers were having.


      For three years Rooster Teeth has been there to comfort and get me through the hard times. And 2018 has been a highlight.

      I met the Jones family and Barb at Planet City Comic Con in KC. I was extremely blessed to purchase Plat passes to my first RTX. I spent three days with my best friends, and I made new ones. I got pulled on stage at Let's Play Live, my best friend got to sit on stage with some of her idols, and I met some of my absolute heroes (Jack and Geoff, lookin' at you). I cosplayed for the first time, I made friends on twitter, I joined groups, and overall? I talk. I'm active. For two years I sat in the background, scared to engage, and now I'm here.


      I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. I couldn't imagine being in any other group or surrounded by anyone else. 

      Here I am accepted.

      Here I belong.


      Memory is the key. And the memories I have made this year will never fade.


      2019 is gonna be hard. I wanna work on me. My confidence, my health, my relationships. Its gonna be a long bumpy road. But I know I have so many people in my corner.


      Because, "No matter how many friends you lose? You can always make more. And I think that's pretty neat".

      I spent the holiday at a friends house and we gamed for three days straight. I am absolutely obsessed. It's been awhile since I have really had the drive to game and do it consistently. All I wanna do is go home and boot up The Last of Us or Spyro or try something new. It's so rare I actually WANT to branch out and try a new game but I can't wait.

      There is no greater joy, as a second grade teacher, than introducing my class to Harry Potter. Some of them have read it/seen the movies with parents. But it is so nice to see the students faces light up as we reach character introductions or the action parts. The illustrated edition has also made it so much more enjoyable. I love it so much and I am so happy to share that joy.


      If only I could show them RT. HA!

      Anyone else ever been SUPER hyped for a game and then just lose it? I bought Read Dead, was so damn excited to play. I booted it up and got fifteen minutes in and stopped. I just lost all excitement and oomph. Like I hyped myself up to much. So now I’m pouting at a game I was excited for but now I have no desire to play.  I know this week is gonna be hard at work and normally that sparks the gaming bug again. Hoping next weekend I can give it another go.

      I can't wait to get home and play this game!

      Our local gamestop was absolutely packed with people. Like. I haven't seen that many people in a gamestop anywhere, let alone our tiny town. Luckily I have a friend who works there and I was able to go in beforehand and get my "golden ticket" to get in line when the time came. It was my first experience at an opening night launch and it was so cool! 

      Unfortunately I had to work today so I haven't gotten to set it up yet. Can't wait to get home and give it a spin. After what I'm sure is a seven year download time.

      Alright, so I streamed for the first time last weekend and it was awesome. Only like two people watched but it was still an amazing experience. The real question? Do I want to stream Red Dead and make a complete fool of myself? Because I think yes.

      I am so excited for ExtraLife 2018! I've saved for all of the merch that will be available, I have my regular donation available, but I'm stepping it up this year! I'm gonna do my best to stream as well! I'm excited to start this new adventure and hopefully raise some money for my own local hospital. I can't wait to get started and be a part of something so incredibly special!

      if ANYONE wants to sell even one Always open mixer ticket I would absolutely pay for it. I am heartbroken at how quick they went. I have a screenshot from ten that shows them unavailable. I am so sad.
