      I keep telling myself that I should use the RT site more for interaction with the community. But every time I try, I'm reminded of problems the site has.


      I find the forums unusable, either because of spam posts or old abandoned threads mixed in with currently active threads. I can't even browse the 'Everyone' feed on the dashboard, because most of the posts are just spam from junk accounts that have registered on the site. They drown out all other legitimate posts.


      It seems we've been waiting a while for these fixes. I've been using the site as my main method of consuming their media lately, due to the issues with the RT First app on the Xbox. I want to be able to use the site for more than just a media player though. It's just depressing to see these problems haven't been corrected yet.

      I just bought my ticket to Let's Play Live in Chicago! I'm so unbelievably excited for it!!


      It kinda (sorta, but not quite) makes up for not going to RTX this year. I'm just ready to do a happy dance right now.


      Will I be seeing anyone there?!

      Made the investment in a second monitor tonight, as Best Buy had a really good sale running on the same model as I already owned. This means.. I just need to put the effort into getting everything installed and set up for streaming and I shall be good to go! :D

    • An Overdue Update

      3 years ago

      xLilCubbie25 Hoot

      I blame my lack of activity recently on how utterly exhausted I've felt constantly over the last couple weeks. Between my work schedule, my attempts at maintaining a social life, and trying to navigate all the difficulties that life has to offer, it's seemingly drained me of all energy. I feel like I'm just now getting to catch up. It's weird too, because I've been getting the same (if not more) sleep as I have for the last 6 months and my eating patterns haven't changed. I'm okay with this phase of exhaustion passing by and never returning.


      My PC has finally been upgraded and is in a fully functioning condition once more. I went from a GTX 660 to a GTX 970 for my graphics and also upgraded my RAM and internal storage. It's ran perfectly so far, just hoping it continues to do so.

      Since my PC is working again, I really want to get back into Twitch streaming! I never really got started in the past, only a random stream here or there, but it's a challenge I truly want to take on. I've noticed lately that I've been having a hard time with a lot of issues that are related to social anxiety.. My hope is that streaming might help to relieve some of the issues I've been having and just overall help me with my social skills (which are quite lacking sometimes).


      I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can land a promotion at work. It's a position I've applied for in the past and was declined, but this time around things seem to be leaning more in my favor. My Assistant Store Manager supports me getting the position, as do several other people, and I feel that I've proven myself capable of handling the responsibilities that will come with the title. I just have to convince my General Store Manager and (corporate) District Manager that I'm capable, as well as hope that I have outshone the other two interviewees.


      I've rambled enough. Hope everyone in the community has been well! <3

    • Merry Christmas!

      I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!


      If you aren't, it's okay. Shit happens. Stay strong, you WILL get through this.


      For myself, this last month has been full of ups and downs. I'll wake up one morning and be just fine, feel motivated and like I'm ready to take on the world and make everything I want in life happen. Other days, I can barely drag myself out of bed, let alone make myself want to go to work or actually accomplish anything. It's a mental battle that I make myself fight through, because I WILL come out on top of all this. And hell, if I can do it, then SO CAN YOU! :)


      Have a great holiday, everyone. And if you ever need an ear to listen, I'll be here.

      I'm really hoping that this happens as I would love to see Lazer Team in theaters without having to travel super far for it!

    • How do YOU keep your life organized?

      3 years ago

      xLilCubbie25 Hoot

      I find myself in the current situation of my life feeling like it's a completely hopeless mess that I'm not in complete control of.

      While I'm okay with not being 100% in control of every little detail, I would like to get back into the routine of staying on top of certain aspects of my life.

      My current priority is getting my financial situation back under control. I need to start saving more than I'm spending and right now, I don't really know if I'm losing out on money or breaking even from month-to-month or what. I also used to be very on top of due dates for all my bills and other such withdrawals from my accounts, however I have also fallen very behind on that and have a tendency of realizing something is due on the very day that it needs to be paid.

      I've tried using Mint before to help manage all my accounts, however I had the problem of half of my accounts not properly syncing up with it. It finally became too big of a hassle and I had to give it up.

      I'm not necessarily looking for something digital to help me out. I'm perfectly okay with using a pen and paper to help solve my problem. I'm just curious as to what other people find works best for them. I'm willing to give anything a try to see if it helps!

      Thank you to anyone who has a suggestion/recommendation. <3

      Can I just say that I'm super happy that there is now a 'Friends Feed' on the dashboard? One of the things I missed the most!

    • Halloween 2015

      3 years ago

      xLilCubbie25 Hoot

      Kinda surprised myself this year when a friend invited me to join them in celebrating Halloween this year, I actually accepted. Every past Halloween, I've usually just spent it with my ex watching spooky movies or by myself playing video games. I wanted to do something different this year, try new things. Maybe I'm just tired of being the person who is always 'good' and making the smart decisions. I don't know.

      I had a blast and am really glad I joined in. However, I only remember about half the night. D: (I might've underestimated just how much alcohol I could handle)

      It definitely made the next day at work interesting, as I dealt with my first full-blown hangover. It wasn't fun, but the night I had before was worth every bit of it.

      I definitely would make that bad decision again. Thank god for my friends who practically had to babysit me though. I've never been more appreciative of them.

      Hope everyone else enjoyed their Halloween! <3

      Hi :) I added you because I happened across your journal about streaming for a good cause, couldn't help but feel a certain kinship. Earlier this month I did a 10-hour stream for suicide prevention. Glad to see someone else wants to help people :)
