Today is #RTCommunityDay. As it is the last one for 2018, I think back on the year as a whole, specifically the last six months for myself personally. I signed up on RoosterTeeth.com on 11/11/05. That's a long time ago. Loved RvB and loved the people who made it even more.
I was a pretty sheltered mind back then (even today I have so much to experience and learn). I met some cool community members who taught me about podcasts and the basics of video and audio editing. Even delved in fun fan projects, submitting my voice for characters.
There wasn't much community presence in Vegas at the time, so I created the RT Las Vegas group, met even more awesome people and found that I very much loved community management. I also volunteered for RTX as a Guardian for five years and loved it with all my heart.
Now, 13 years later, almost half my life, here I am as a CM for Rooster Teeth. I never thought I would be here as I am but I honestly cannot imagine being anywhere else. RT has changed my life. The friends I've made, the memories we have created... Over the years, we laughed together, cried together, uplifted each other when times were tough and celebrated when times were amazing. I saw people get married and start families and build their own businesses. I got to see so much good come from this community.
And we are far from being done. We will continue to grow and build and learn, and become a stronger family. I am beyond happy and humbled that I get to be in a position to see all of this happen in years to come. Thank you #rtcommunity. I love you all so much.
