      *peeks in*


      So I had promised last year that I was gonna be more active with posting on here...which didn't really happen (my bad!), but hey! New year, new chance to honor my promise! So here's a recap of (mostly) the last month but also some other stuff too!


      January has literally felt like 5 months combined into one but I've narrowed the recap down to the Most Important Bits:


      - I got a new job in December! I now do CS work for Humble Bundle, which is pretty awesome because I'm a huge fan of the company (also I get to work from home which is a huge bonus)


      - I've still been streaming on Twitch 3 nights a week, and I've been affiliated since early September! I *say* I'm a variety streamer, but honestly all I'm playing lately is PUBG and BioShock Infinite....Username is the same as it is here, so feel free to stop by for a stream one night!


      - Early January my apartment building caught fire (true story lmao) and while my actual apartment was undamaged and I didn't lose anything, the entire building was condemned SO after living in a hotel for a week I was able to move into a new apartment in a *slightly* different part of Austin. I guess I lucked out because this new one is about 100 sq. ft bigger and more modern but I'm getting it for the same price as my old one. 


      Anyways, that's pretty much it! I'll try really hard to do these every month, provided I don't forget!

      Apparently I'm the featured user on the RT site today, which I guess is a good enough reason to post another journal here!


      Austin is very wet right now thanks to Harvey, but luckily my apartment hasn't lost power *knocks on wood*.


      Also, I'm officially back to streaming on twitch 3 nights a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8 pm CST) so if you haven't already checked me out over there you should! My username is the same as it is here.

      You all can blame Ryan for this one, seriously. 

      It may or may not be the costume I'm wearing in my profile picture.

      Yes....it's me. I'm the one who wrote the pig latin card for Episode 100 and ruined Miles' life. :D


      (Also don't worry, we hugged and made up after the cameras stopped rolling)

      imkaylamarie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Local Hot Mess

      As of yesterday I am officially an Austin resident!! 


      It's very hot, but I am adjusting! One of my roommates is very nice, I haven't met the other yet but I've heard good things. 


      Heading back to (remote) work on Monday, along with continuing to hunt for a job that can keep me down here after August ends! *cough*heyRThiremeplease*cough*

    • Username Change

      imkaylamarie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Local Hot Mess

      Yep, finally did it. Changed my username from kaytown to imkaylamarie, so that it would match with my twitch handle/make it easier for people to connect the two accounts!


      One day I might change my gamertag as well, but that's a problem for future Kayla.


    • I AM ALIVE!!! +MY JOB (Hire Me?)

      imkaylamarie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Local Hot Mess

      Forgot to do an April update soooo here goes!


      Let's Play Live was AMAZING. Seriously, if you went to any of the shows you know just how good it was! AH and FH put on a fantastic show (pictures coming soon!). I got to meet/hug/get pictures with everyone at the meet and greet, which definitely takes off some of the pressure of trying to meet everyone at RTX! Also, be proud of me because I didn't cry during the meet and greet. 


      SPEAKING OF RTX...AND AUSTIN... Ya girl is officially moving down there at the beginning of July*! I just found a place to stay for the summer....so it's officially happening which is TERRIFYING.

             *No, RT didn't hire me...yet. But you know...if they did, that'd be cool. 


      Third (related) topic: I'm starting to contract myself out as a freelance video editor (which is what I do for the company I'm at right now in Virginia) to different clients as a way to widen my portfolio SOOOOO if you need any editing done of any sort please hit me up! I've done multiple types of videos and my prices are fairly low (maybe even...free for the first few clients) and are based on the length of the video. I've done everything from marketing promos to short fan films to Let's Play style videos. Woo! Hire me (seriously, I need money). 


      ANYWOOO, that's it for this one! Also, I have an exciting YouTube series thats coming out soon on my channel soon that I think people on this site will really like!


    • Twitch Schedule, LPL + COSPLAY SHOOT!!!!

      2 years ago

      imkaylamarie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Local Hot Mess

      I'm gonna try to do these kinds of updates regularly! Not sure if they'll be weekly/biweekly/monthly - its just gonna be when I have cool stuff to talk about!


      So for this update:


      I now have an official streaming schedule on Twitch! The streams aren't great quality but I'm working on improving them soon!


      Right now my weekly schedule is

      Mondays at 7 PM EST

      Thursdays at 7 PM EST

      Saturdays at 4 PM EST. 


      I might add bonus streams occasionally but those three times will definitely happen unless I say otherwise! My twitch is here (I changed my username from what it used to be). Feel free to follow!


      Also, I'm so excited that I'm finally going to be doing my first cosplay shoot in a couple of weeks!!!! I'll be kicking things off as Blake Belladonna. I've wanted to get into cosplay for the longest time but was honestly a little scared too. Can't wait to share the photos with everyone!


      AND FINALLY - I'm going as a VIP to LPL Baltimore! Bought the tickets for myself because I deserve good things, and also because I knew that if I missed the chance to meet the AH boys (see: hug Ryan) I might actually cry. So between that and going to RTX with a VIP pass as well, it looks like I'll be seeing a lot of the RT people within the next few months!


    • RTX 2017!!!

      Forgot to make an announcement about this on Monday, but I am officially going to RTX this summer with a VIP badge! I've wanted to go for the past three years, but something always prevented me from going. I'm super stoked to finally be able to attend!

    • 2016 Recap & 2017 Resolutions/Goals

      2 years ago

      imkaylamarie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Local Hot Mess

      This is going to be long-ish, sorry. 


      Currently watching last night's podcast and waiting for my Xbox Live connection to come back (RIP), so I thought I'd make a little recap post about 2016, since its almost over. I decided to do this to reflect on some of the good things that happened to me this year, since I think 2016 was pretty crappy for the world overall.


      So, good things!!! (I'm going to go in mostly-chronological order for my own sake)


      -  Got cast in my last college show, despite callbacks being cancelled due to snow (if you've ever worked in theater before, you know how terrifying that can be)

      - Actually made a group of friends in college who didn't end up being shitty to me

      - Splurged and went with aforementioned friends on a Spring Break trip down to Myrtle Beach (There's a video! Check it out!)

      - Got another (part-time) job. Yay more income!!

      - Moved into my first real apartment with one of my friends

      - Adopted a kitten

      - Went by myself to London for a week (my bank account is still recovering from that tbh)

      - Went to NYC again

      - Saw Hamilton!!!! Still probably the best thing that happened to me because it was a total surprise

      - Started my last semester of college

      - Went to Austin for the first time!!!!

      - Met Sebastian Stan

      - Got a contract job working in production as an editor/uploader, which actually falls under the umbrella of what I actually want to end up doing

      - Graduating college early!! (Technically, this is in the future because I'm posting this on the 13th and I graduate on the 21st. But it's happening so it's making the list!!)


      And now, some goals/resolutions for 2017! I'm posting these here too so that you all can hold me accountable for them:


      - Get a full time job. Not super picky as to what it is, just something with salary and benefits.

      - Pay off my credit card debt

      - Play more video games, now that I actually have time to do so

      - Get a new gaming laptop (this will require a full-time job so I can afford one)

      - Go to RTX 2017

      - Move to Austin 

      - And finally, become friends with more of you guys!! This community has been integral to me surviving the last several years, even before I officially joined the site in 2015. Anybody who feels the same way (or really, anybody) can definitely friend me and talk to me about whatever you want!!


      Here's to 2017 being not-shitty!
