    • A Year in the Life of a Jackiebot

      3 years ago

      jackiebot me irl

      It's been about a year since I've made a life updates kind of journal. And it's been legitimately the busiest, craziest year of my life. Sooo.. I think it's about time I made one.

      Here are the highlights... in mostly chronological order. And extremely pic-heavy.

      Last we chatted in detail, I had just moved to Savannah, GA with my then-fiance, @drewofdoom, and we had just bought a house.

      We have since settled into said house, and have been loving it. We've been slowly remodeling little things here and there to our liking. For the majority, though, the house is pretty perfect for us, so there's not a whole lot we need to do to it. So far we've done things like built huge shelves out of industrial pipe and shelf wood (this is my toy shelf. that's not even close to all of my toys) -

      VvG0dQ4.jpg

      and painting gigantic argyle-style chalkboard diamonds in our kitchen -

      YZ0GkH4.jpg

      These diamonds are now completely covered in chalk graffiti.. mostly from half the internet visiting us over the past year. The next journal you see from me will probably be pics of that.

      We also remodeled our entire home office since we both work from home.

      We've spent a lot of time exploring the city. Especially the beach..

      UWTXPzB.jpg

      Then I got an awesome tattoo of a mechanical octopus..

      ETOEuiJ.jpg

      Shortly after that, we were getting ready to get married.. and then my wisdom teeth waged a violent attack on the molars next to them. I was in so much pain, I couldn't even hear out of one ear. So I had to have emergency oral surgery four days before my wedding. I'm still a little annoyed at how swollen my face looks in the wedding pics, but I'll eventually get over it.

      AND THEN WE GOT MARRIED!

      lv6bTt0.jpg

      Here's an album of the event in various stages. We didn't hire a photographer, so these photos are pulled from various people who volunteered to take pictures and friends' social streams. There are a LOT of rooster teeth friends in those photos. Both @fnvicky and @cyanophobia were lovely and gracious enough to agree to be my bridesmaids.

      The day after our wedding, @kickcows and I went down and got tattoos. I got a mechanical jellyfish to go with my octopus (here are the two of them together.. though they're on different shoulders)-

      DNQqbyw.jpg

      A couple weeks after our wedding was Halloween. We turned our house into a Monster House -

      c2Yj6D6.jpg

      Drew and I went as Agent Skully and Agent Molder (not typos). Pics here.

      As you may recall, I had two bunnies, Omar and McNulty. McNulty was a very young bunny (not even a year old at this time), but always had health problems. Around Halloween, he unexpectedly passed away. Here are pics of his cuteness for those interested.

      Omar mourned him pretty hard. We had actually planned on getting them a girl bunny friend when McNulty unexpectedly passed, so when we went to pick her up (two days afterwards), we went ahead and got two girl buns, Ghost and Ramona (pls excuse the bunny poops, they weren't litter-trained at the time).

      Skipping ahead a little bit to December.. NASA selected me to go down to the Kennedy Space Center, and attend a Space-X launch, then write stuff about it on the internets. Unfortunately, the launch was canceled, but I did get to attend the homecoming press conference for the Orion spacecraft. Here's the writeup on that -

      nerdsinbabeland.com/archives/9073

      In the beginning of the year, my brain was pretty fried from all the goings-on, so I took it easy for a couple of months.. spent time working on the house. Bonding our bunnies. Hanging with my husband. Playing video games.. that kind of stuff. Oh, and I went blonde in this time (see profile pic).

      Then in May, the husbae and I drove down to Orlando to meet up with @Amber and her awesome new husband for some Universal Studios fun. @Psycholagny got to join us briefly, too. For some stupid reason, we forgot to take a group pic of this, so here's a picture of Hogwarts -

      2OMWSLy.jpg

      It was a busy few weekends for a while there - local weddings to go to, visits from friends (including a visit from @dopp and @doppsgrl).

      Then something crazy happened... Some time in March, I casually entered a contest put on by Starbreeze/Overkill studios (dudes that make the PayDay games). All it involved was sending them one, little tweet. The contest wasn't even confirmed to happen during the time that you had to send the tweet, but I went ahead and did it. And very surprisingly, out of nowhere, I started getting messages from them on twitter in early June. I had won the contest, and they were going to fly me out to Los Angeles the following weekend to attend the Pre-E3 Launch Party for the Walking Dead game.

      It was fucking amazing. There's a whole write-up about it here -

      nerdsinbabeland.com/archives/9346

      And because this pic isn't in the article (mostly because of the terrible lighting in it), here's a selfie with Almir Listo -

      tlexUhV.jpg

      During that trip, I got to meet up with @finchlynch, @kickcows, and one anonymous, awesome person.. and this time we remembered to take a picture -

      U7ePAkc.jpg

      After I got home, I got a random call from my bunnies' vet. It's quite the story, but a long one.. so here's Tom the Bunny's story -

      imgur.com/XdWPjVw

      Things have now settled down for a couple weeks. I turn 31 at the end of the month, and have more adventures planned for the near future.

      And that's all I have for you right now. I hope you're all doing awesomely! smiley12.gif

      jackiebot me irl

      I saw @Laurin do this, and I'm a big ol' copycat.

      1). My first ever crush was on Edward Scissorhands. Not Johnny Depp... specifically Edward Scissorhands.

      2). Sometimes I laugh so hard, I cry. Okay, I actually do this a lot.

      3). My husband doesn't call me by my name, he calls me 'Robot' (affectionately).

      4). I very often photoshop human arms onto birds. It tends to annoy @bey.

      5). I have an entire folder in my bookmarks dedicated to gifs to use in various internet situations. There are dozens in there. Probably around 100 by now. They're meticulously labeled.


      Care to join me with the fact sharing?

      I never knew Monty Oum, and I'm sorry I'll never get the chance to. He seemed like an incredibly talented and warm person.

      My thoughts and support are with anyone who has lost a friend, family member, mentor, or source of inspiration in this wake of this tragedy. If you are able and willing to support his family financially, and help take some of the strain off of their grieving, please do so here -

      If you're just hearing the news, @Matt's journal here explains what happened.

      Hold your loved ones tight, and be good to each other.

      jackiebot me irl

      Tonight I'm leaving my cozy home and bunnies, and heading down to the Kennedy Space Center with a press pass to sit ringside at the SpaceX Dragon launch on friday.

      During this process, I'll also get a chance to tour the KSC, talk with some NASA engineers, and ask questions, as well as participate in a few press conferences.

      So if you could pose any question to NASA about SpaceX, what would it be?

      Also, if you want to follow my journey there, follow me on twitter - @jackietherobot and/or the org. i'll be there representing - @nerdsinbabeland. There will also be a full write-up on the experience on nerdsinbabeland.com this weekend after the launch.

    • Let's Talk About Internet Bullies

      4 years ago

      jackiebot me irl

      Over the past couple weeks, I've been watching journal after journal eluding to some seemingly major bullying event that nobody wants to name. Some of us mods and admins have even discussed it, trying to get to the root of it.. to no avail.

      I want to make it clear here that I am not, in any way, speaking on behalf of the Rooster Teeth staff or company, but as someone who has been a moderator on this site for many years, and also as just a run-of-the-mill, opinion-having member for several more years. However, seeing this very quiet occurrence pop up so very loudly lately is really getting to me.

      This isn't something that's bothering me because I have any problem with people speaking their minds when it comes to the happenings of this site or internet forums in general. Rather, it's because there's nothing I or my fellow mods and admins can do about it directly, and that's our entire purpose here on this site.

      Before we get into that bit any farther, I first want to mention that it's important to recognize when you're actually being bullied, and when you're receiving constructive criticism, or simply having a disagreement with another user. Being the Art Forum moderator, I've seen many instances of people attempting to offer constructive criticism, but wording it in such a way that it gets misconstrued by the receiver, and allegations of bullying begin. I've also seen people have simple differences of opinion, and one claiming to be bullied. It will save you a good amount of hurt feelings and wasted time if you keep an open mind in these situations, and try to give that other person the benefit of the doubt. The internet is a place where people turn their filters down or off completely. Since most people here can hide behind anonymity, it is very possible that you will run into disputes that you wouldn't typically get into while standing in line for coffee.

      That said, however, if you DO feel like you're being bullied, or you see something that you think is bullying on this site, do not engage the harasser. Don't try to take matters into your own hands..

      YOU NEED TO REPORT IT.

      I keep seeing posts about how 'something needs to be done about the harassment on this site,' but we simply cannot do anything about it if we don't know about it. Harassment and bullying is taken very seriously here, and is not tolerated. If you, someone you know, or just someone you've seen in a forum is being attacked, we legitimately do want to help, and we have the tools to do so.

      Take a look at the forum rules (particularly numbers 2 and 3):
      roosterteeth.com/forum/viewTopic.php?id=222069...

      and the Terms of Use:
      roosterteeth.com/tou/

      And then keep in mind that if you ever have a problem on this site, there's a full list of staff here:
      roosterteeth.com/staff/

      Even if you're mistaking something else for bullying. Or you message a staff member that doesn't handle that, directly - no one is going to get mad at you for having concerns. If you don't hear back in a reasonable amount of time, try someone else (typically, messaging site admins is highly effective, and most high-traffic subforums on this site have their own moderator you can take concerns to). If you want to remain anonymous in the situation, simply mention that to the staff member that you're messaging, and your concerns will be taken seriously.

      That is all.

        alerts have been messing up for me since i got home today, so i saw this in the forum before i even saw it here.. but i LOOOOOOVE the remake!!

        I was kind of laughing at how you made that messy shelf in the background.. in your drawing, it looks like mountains and a dinosaur and a giant flower.. in reality, it was a batman figurine in a box, a bag of dog treats, a dinosaur, and an explosion taped to a pez dispenser from this video

      So I go on the google just now, and do a search for "saltillo monocyte", because I loved Ganglion and wanted to find out about / download the new album, and what do I find on page 1 but a review from Nerds in Babeland, as shared by Jackiebot.

      This has officially solidified you as one of the coolest persons I know. I would say THE coolest but then you'd stop trying.

        Ha.. that's a nerdy blog site a friend of mine and I started.. Kat (kickcows from here) is on there, too.

        Also, would it help my cool rating if I tell you I'm currently working on a Portal song mashup with "Still Alive" and "Want You Gone" as duets with a friend? And simultaneously organizing a Zombie Prom locally [that will close out a 'Geekout Weekend,' and acts as a fundraiser to our annual horror event in October]?

        It's in June.. the mating season is for like three weeks in June, but the Elkmont Park in Gatlinburg, TN does the trolly ride up to the mountain (and keeps the park open later) between June 2nd and 10th this year. Here's info on it:
