      Happy Almost-New Year, My Classy Capybaras!

      xkr4o3.jpg

      First off, Merry belated Christmas to all of you Christmas celebrators! I hope you got what you wanted and spent time with your family/friends! Thanks again to all of the lovely men and women of Rooster Speak who participated in the Secret Snowman event this year. You all are amazing and deserve to be praised!

      Now on to the good stuff!

      A couple of friends and I left 2012 around this time last year saying that 2013 was "going to be our year." Now, while I'm not entirely sure if that worked out for everyone, I'll certainly say this: 2013 was, in fact, a year. It was 365 days of pure, unadulterated experiences. Am I excited to leave behind some events? Sure. That doesn't mean, however, that I would go back and change them. I believe that 2013 can be labeled as the year I grew. Not physically, of course. Unless you're talking about my waistline, which may have grown a bit, but oh my gosh, how could you bring that up at a time like this? Have you no manners? Rude.

      Things to Look Back On:

      I'm sure I'm lacking about twenty things on that list, but it's a pretty good generalization of all of the things I will miss from 2013. I believe that this past year will become a year I look back on and smile about. And in that regard, I hope for 2014 to remain the same.

      I sincerely hope that 2013 was an amazing year for each and every one of you. I care about so many of the people here on Rooster Teeth, I sincerely want 2014 to be nothing but sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows for you.

      Thank you again. I owe so many of my laughs, smiles, stories, and good times to your presence in my life. There are too many people to name who I cannot fathom being without this next year. I would hope that you know who you are. And if you don't, I hope to fix that over the next 12 months.

    • Crafty As Shit

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      I like to think that I can do crafts sometimes. I hate describing myself as "artsy" or "artistic" because that just sounds silly to me. I don't like describing myself other than saying that I'm "cool as fuck" or something along those sarcastic lines.

      What I will accredit myself for is the ability to crochet the most amateur scarves your little eyes have ever had the privilege of looking upon. I will also accredit myself to thinking I have the capabilities to do more than I actually can. Some people call that ambition. I have no idea what I'm going to say it is. Ambition sure sounds nicer than stupidity, though. Now, don't start thinking "holy shit, this girl knows how to crochet," because I have no idea what I'm doing. My mom taught me how to do one type of stitch seven years ago, and I've stuck with that like the woman who mistook super glue for eye drops. This is prevalent in my latest attempt at making Christmas presents for a few family members. Since the people I may be giving them to both don't know who they are and probably won't see this, I'll let you know what I'm making: Gloves.

      Here's the pattern I've been trying to follow for you creative types

      Those things are cute as hell, aren't they?? My stupid thumbs-for-hands, however, have tried twice to make one cuff only to fail. Ok, don't get me wrong, I've completed both cuffs... I can do that much. My problem therein lies that they've been either too big or too small. So I'm now a cuff factory, making ones small enough to fit my guinea pig or large enough to, well, fit my guinea pig. HE GETS COLD SOMETIMES, OKAY?

      Lk3rCm5.jpg

      Anyway, I'm on my third try to hopefully get that perfect in-between that Goldilocks would appreciate, and my patience has worn down. I'm now left with enough poise to start mentally swearing at yarn. I think "god damn giraffe nipples" may have been the most inventive of the lot. It even surprised me.

      In other news, I passed both of my nursing classes for this semester. So I have that going for me.

      Love and hugs,
      smiley12.gif Warpek

      And yes, the purpose for this entire journal was absolutely so I could say "giraffe nipples."

      Nailed it.

    • HOW Many Days Until Christmas?

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      Well, I didn't really realize how busy I've been until I looked at the calendar. There is a little over two weeks until Christmas, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that it snuck up on me. I mean, sure, I've been organizing the Secret Snowman thing since September, but that somehow didn't wake me up from the dream state I've been in enough to realize that everything was so rapidly approaching.

      tumblr_m85jkxGa7y1rz88gno1_500.gif

      Between now and the New Year, I will be finishing up my second semester of the nursing program (lecture, numerous skills, and a final), work partying, working, having a medical procedure, moving, working, Christmas-ing, working... Somewhere in all of that mess, I'll be trying to find/wrap gifts for the people in my real life. I have maybe four Christmas presents taken care of and about fifteen more to go. Yeah!

      santa-gif.gif

      I will take this chance, then, to apologize to the people in my internet life for my being unable to send out care packages. More than anything, I just don't think I'll be able to devote the time or resources toward being able to give as much as I would like to this year. In fact, the only actual presents I will be sending this year are the ones I promised to send and failed to do so last year (you know who you are and I AM STILL SO SORRY).

      tumblr_me0qpbs4SH1rutosco1_500.gif

      So here is my solution that I am stealing from, I believe, @Juls:
      Let me know in the comments, and I will send you a holiday card. I can't guarantee that I'll have them all sent out or to you by Christmas, but I can sure as peas get a card to you sometime in December (or maybe January... BY FEBRUARY, AT LEAST). I will then send you a private message asking for your address if I don't already have it, and will send you a card with a heartfelt message.
      ...Unless we don't know each other very well and you just stumbled upon this journal. In which case, prepare your mailbox for a card with the most genuine I can be toward a complete stranger!

      tumblr_lwpfhkBPR91qe8vzf.gif

      I sincerely hope that everything is going well for you all.

      Love and hugs,

    • In Regards to Secrets and Santas

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      Hey there, beautifuls!

      tumblr_mw24ap8vKi1qjutmio3_500.gif

      I have been notified and seen a lot of publicity for the RT Secret Santa exchange going on this year and would like to say a few things...

      As some of you may know, I put together the Rooster Speak Secret Snowman (political correctness, yo!) gift exchange last year for that amazing sub-community here on this site. Previously, we had a little over thirty participants sharing in the holiday spirit. This year, while we are two or three people shy of that number, the excitement has remained the same! To the people signed up this year, amazing job, Snowmen and Women. I can't wait to see you all on Reveal Night (a night when everyone comes together to open their gifts) and see how everything unfolds!

      More to the point, though, I could not be more thrilled that there is another group doing a gift exchange. That's what the holidays are for, right? Giving. Togetherness. Peace. I mean, if we have learned anything over the past year--especially over the past month--it's that the Rooster Teeth community is filled with those things every day.

      To the admins of that group: I sincerely wish you the best of luck. The first year doing something is often difficult, but doing it on the scale that you are is remarkable. As of right now, there are almost 150 people in your group, and assuming all of them participate, that is a lot of joy being spread around. Don't get overwhelmed; you can do it. I doubt I would be able to coordinate an open exchange of that magnitude on my own... There are not enough spreadsheets in the world, hah!

      For Hanukkah celebrators, Happy Hanukkah on Wednesday
      For Americans, Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday.
      For Christmas celebrators, 30 days to go!
      For Christmas carolers, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING IN MY APARTMENT
      For Kwanzaa celebrators, I didn't forget you, I'm just unaware of when Kwanzaa starts.
      For people who don't celebrate/hate the holidays, 'sup.

    • Knee Replacements and Playlists

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      So today I saw a Total Knee Replacement.

      IF YOU CLICKED ON THAT AND EXPECTED SOMETHING OTHER THAN GORE, WE CLEARLY DON'T KNOW EACH OTHER.

      It. Was. Awesome.

      The anesthesia they used was basically a spinal block where they inject anesthetic into the space between two vertebrae to eliminate feeling in your lower extremities. Since my patient wasn't put under general anesthetic, she was awake for the entire thing. She got to watch her own surgery.

      Since this was my first time in the OR as an observer, let me clue you in on a few things that I, for whatever reason, didn't realize:

      smiley9.gif They count each piece of equipment they use.
      smiley9.gif There is little regard for what spills/gets dropped onto the ground. (No, they don't drop equipment then pick it up and use it, but water, bone, etc. sometimes gets on the floor, and they don't stop what they're doing to clean/pick it up.)
      smiley9.gif When cutting away fat or removing pieces from the patient, it's not uncommon for the surgical team to just throw whatever it is on a table for someone else to handle.
      smiley9.gif The smell of cutting through bone is one I can't really describe, but one I won't really forget. For those of you who have had dental surgery where they needed to drill into a tooth, imagine that smell magnified ten fold.
      smiley9.gif Sometimes the vendors/representatives of a product know more than the surgical team... o.O

      smiley9.gif They actually listen to music in the OR.

      In fact, here's a playlist of some of the songs we listened to (that I can remember):

      Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding
      I Saw Her Standing There - The Beatles
      Under the Boardwalk - The Drifters
      Baby I Need Your Loving - Four Tops
      Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles
      Hotel California - The Eagles
      Gimme Three Steps - Lynard Skynyrd

      tumblr_mv7s7dM5S91suomu9o1_500.gif

      If I think of more, I'll add them. It was a 1-2 hour surgery, so there were a lot of songs played...

      Love and hugs,
      smiley12.gif Warpek

    • Not Quite A Goodbye

      6 years ago

      Warpek

      I always like to let you lovely people know when I'm going to be absent for a while, and this journal is here to serve that purpose. I won't be absolutely gone, but my time spent both on the site and on RoosterSpeak will decrease dramatically.

      I started the Nursing program back up again on Monday, and that's going to devour my life once more. Due to personal reasons and poor decision making skills on my part, I stared this semester off a bit behind on some of my skills. After today, however, I put in enough time and played enough catch up to be on level with, if not ahead of, some of my other classmates. I am already exhausted.

      After everything that you all have done for me, I am trying my hardest to not allow my friendships here dwindle. I truly do mean it when I say that each and every one of you is important to me. You continually keep me smiling when I didn't think I had any more smiles left in me. Especially during the last month and a half, post-RTX.

      As busy as I may be, if you ever need anything, feel free to send me a message either on the site, facebook, by email, phone, or kik. I can always make time for friends, you just might have to be a little more patient with me.

      P.S. I've been asked and have thought about doing another Rooster Speak Secret Snowman exchange this year, but I need to hammer out a few details before we can start. I'll be asking for feedback in the coming weeks from past participants, so start thinking about ways to improve the exchange and whether or not you'll be signing up.
