      Thank YOU! Thank you for all the work you both put in for Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter & the community. Whether it's posting content, helping people out when things go awry, or simply checking in, I appreciate it all. I know I've said all this before, but quite frankly, I believe I don't say it enough! :) You both have been such an inspiration for me over the years. So Thank YOU both for another awesome year here in the Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter Communities as the managers! And thank you for being two kind, wonderful people. I hope you both have wonderful weeks! Here's to a fantastic 2016! :)

    • Two Years of Sponsorship

      "Time flies when you're having fun" - Unknown. These last two years seemed to have flew by fast! Today (December 20) is my two year Sponsorship-versary! I have to say I loved every second of it. Getting to watch streams live (Podcasts, On The Spot, The Patch, etc) has been one of my favorite parts of being a sponsor. Also while I can't confirm this, I have met some very awesome people through posting stuff from live streams.


      I will say by far my favorite moment of being a Sponsor was during RTX 2015. It was day one and I had just came back to my hotel from wondering around the Convention Center. I had stopped in the hotel lobby to relax/figure out what I wanted to do next. After some Time Adam Ellis and his girlfriend (who was in a BADASS N7 armor cosplay) walk by. As they walked by, I said Hi Adam, he notices me and my Sponsor shirt, and says "Hey, I like your shirt!". I said thank you and that was the end of the interaction. Now why did I tell you this? I want to believe that that small interaction lead me to go up to and (properly) introduce myself to Adam (on day 3). He, along with his girlfriend, are two of the nicest people I met! (granted literally everyone I met at RTX was the nicest) We all had great conversations and I am happy to have met them both!


      It really has been two great years of sponsorship! *raises imaginary glass to toast* Here's to many more years to come!

      First of let me (again) say Happy 4 years of working at Rooster Teeth, Barbara!


      I first really started to know/hear of Barbara around the first RTX (coincidentally also same time frame I started liking puns a lot more ;).) From watching her in RT videos from then on, I thought she was one of the coolest people and that she definitely fit into RT.


      Since then, round every RTX, I'd see/hear stories/journals/posts of how awesome/wonderful it was to meet Barbara Dunkelman. At some point, I too wanted to meet Barabara, because of said posts saying how kind/awesome she was. Cut to RTX 2015...


      It was morning of Day 2 of RTX. I had finally attended my first RTX. I was in the hotel lobby I was staying at, relaxing before another day at RTX. At some point, Barbara and her PA came around the corner. I said either "Hi Barbara" or "Morning Barbara!". Barbara smiled, waved and said Hi/morning back and walked off. If I'm remembering correctly, a couple minutes pass and I see Barbara again. She walks over to me (I can not remember if there was a group) and says she has one thing she has to do and then she could talk. It may not seem like much, but having someone you look up to/admire basically say they'd like to meet you just as much as you want to meet them IS AN AMAZING FEELING. She came back after she was done and we had a brief but nice chat. That simple act really helped me get through the rest of RTX. (Even though I did get quite nervous at her & Miles Autograph signing on Day 3). Barbara really is one of the nicest, kindest, wonderful, just all around awesome human. I, like many, am so grateful you are a part of this community... this family. One last time, Happy 4 Year Anniversary working at Rooster Teeth Barbara!
