      I do firmly believe that the real test of growth, mentally, emotionally and spiritually comes from when we are knocked down. And right now, I am the most down I have ever been. I have been rejected from a scholarship that would permit me to do a Masters degree this year. And this means I am currently stuck in an awful job with a horrible boss and the worst part is that asides from my parents I am completely alone. I know no one who lives in my hometown anymore, they were lucky enough to find love or careers somewhere else.

      Last year I suffered an emotional trauma where I lost all my close friends in my hometown and in March of this year my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is undergoing chemotherapy right now and it's the worst thing to watch the person you love most in the world become ill. I have not lost the fight to pursue the career I want however right now, in this moment I fear the worst for my emotional state. I feel lonely, exhausted and worried that anyone I am close to will drift away.

      And you know the only thing that makes me really happy? Rooster Teeth. It's my escape from my life but right now, I need support. I don't know how many people will read this. But things are looking pretty low right now.

      When I pressed play what I was expecting something along the lines of making Ray eat cake and destroying all the roses and generally making jibes and poking fun, but the reality was so far from that.

      This is without doubt the most sincere Lets Play the crew have ever done. In amongst the jokes and laughs were prolonged moments of silence when they remembered that this was happening. I think the two who struck me most was Geoff and Michael. When Geoff got out the carpet no one really joked because they knew how much this lets play meant to him and that they were together for one last time. Michael towards the end also expressed a genuine wish to stay friends with Ray which was utterly heartbreaking. And I really really hope they do stay friends.

      It was a beautiful send off and it was what Ray deserved but I didn't expect it. So thank you crew for pushing the jokes aside and making something real. And Ray, I am really gonna miss you man.

      Figured it was time to give some money for the endless hours of entertainment. Plus I couldn't exactly wait another 24 hours for a Ryan short.

      Truly devastating news, don't really know what to say.
      When I first starting watching videos a year and half ago, Monty was one of the first people I really warmed to. He was talented and funny, and shared so much happiness among the community. This news comes hard to me and yet no one I know in my real life, yet when I'm on tumblr, reddit and the site I don't feel so alone. Wherever you are, we are all together.
      The support that I have seen and that we all give to one another is a truly beautiful thing and for some reason a quote from Harry Potter came to mind;

      "Now the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me, and, reminds us, that though we may come from different countries and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one."

      I know our hearts all beat as one today, and our hearts are with those close to Monty Oum. A soul who touched so many and shall never be forgot.
      RIP Monty <3

      I can already feel people complaining. When it comes to all things Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter, Tumblr is my home. It's where me and all my friends come together to enjoy things. Today I've been scanning the subreddit that has covered the On the Spot controversy as I am one to do, and I knew other fans hate Tumblr but I had no idea it was that bad. "They're on tumblr so fuck 'em." Just an example. It made me feel like I'm less of a fan or that I can be written off just because I'm on tumblr. I remember meeting another fan a couple of months ago and when I told them about the RT community on tumblr they gave me a face as if to say oh you're one of those silly girls who do nothing but ship Michael and Gavin and bitch about offensive content. It's just not the case. I hate the stereotype that's slapped onto me.
