Up until this point, I dont think it fully registered in my brain that I was going to RTX this year. I, at 20 years old, would be traveling off the east coast for the first time to the land of barbecue and gaming nerds. I kind of knew it was happening in my head but it wasnt until yesterday that it hit me.
Not only am I going to RTX
holy shit im going to RTXBUT IM GOING AS A GUARDIAN.
Getting the email yesterday had me in a full sprint (well a limping sprint but same idea) around my job. I originally applied on a whim. I have never been to a full blown convention before, let alone RTX so i honestly didn't think they were going to take me. But bOy wAS I WRONG. Its so surreal seeing I get to travel to the hub of it all. Im so excited to meet more people in the community and I cant wait to help make RTX super fun not only for myself, but for everyone else as well!
This is truly a dream. I love spending every second interacting with the community and connecting people together. Words cannot explain how much I love being apart of this group. The friends ive made and the people ive talked to have inspired me, supported me, encouraged me, laughed with me and so much more. Being in the same vicinity of THOUSANDS of people with same passion and hobby that I have is SO EXCITING. I woke up with a stupid ass grin this morning because its really happening.
SO in exactly 179 days, I will be on a plane with at least one screaming baby to Austin, Texas! A big thank you to @SailorTweek and the rest of the team for picking me! I cannot WAIT to be apart of the guardian fam!

This year was probably one of the scariest years of my entire life. I finally entered my 20′s. Its scary because its showing me that growing old is inevitable. Subconsciously, I still think of myself as a child in many ways. The beginning of the year was rough. I had finally come to terms with the fact that i’m not straight. In fact I still don’t know what I am. When and if people ask, I just say i’m simply attracted to human connection. THAT in itself I see as a major accomplishment. Though i am not out to a lot of people, the few people that do know love and accept me.I was raised being told to marry a man and get a successful job and a white picket fenced house because that’s what i was told to do. Sure it didn’t last long and honestly it was for the best because she is one of my dear friends and I couldn’t imagine not having her in my life. We learned a lot about ourselves and each other that I think made us closer. Months later, I had went way out of my comfort zone and organized a meet up with internet friends for the Rooster Teeth NJ group. My anxiety has always been something that held me back. Though i hate to admit it, it stops me from doing a lot. So RTNJ and being able to run something was a really big accomplishment for me as well.
Honestly, I still personally struggle getting up and putting a face out for everyone to see and being the center of attention. But its worth it in the end, that i know, its just hard to push through to get to that point.
I made friendships this year that will last a lifetime. Nights full of laughs and no sleep. Sitting in iHop booths and having deep talks about life with people I hold near and dear to my heart will stick with me for a long time.
Then the summer came.
July I had fallen deep into this dark pit. Everything that was going super well in my life had slowly just began to unravel. It had felt like I was falling apart. My mom had been hospitalized and diagnosed with skin cancer, my dad had lost his job, my panic attacks had returned, i had my heart broken, i relapsed in more ways than one and my god i had never hit a point like this in my life. It was like everything I cared about suddenly became everything I didn’t care about. I stopped working out, eating, sleeping, taking care of myself. There were some days where i couldn’t get out of bed. I heavily debated in going back to church just so I could believe in something, anything. My friends began going back to school and I had felt so alone, I began to distance myself. It wasn’t until a month ago in which I said i was tired of feeling like this. I started trying to get back into the swing of things, I found myself writing poems and songs and they truly helped me get out of my dark space.
As of today, I still am working on getting out of wherever the hell I am mentally. But i know I’m better than I was before. 2018 is going to be the year of making myself happy and not caring what other people think. I’m going to try and put myself first before others and do what I think would be best for me. 2017 was one of the worst years of my life, but in a way was one of the best Everything happens for a reason and I am to do nothing but reflect and learn from this year and everything its thrown my way. I hope to conquer my anxiety and go out of my comfort zone, I hope to travel more and see places ive never seen. I wish the best for myself and all of my friends.

Well, crazy isn't even a word I can use to describe the past two days. It doesn't even come close.
RTNJs very first meet up was AMAZING! Despite me telling everyone to drink my sodas (still sorry) there was about 40 people who decided to dance and party before Let's Play Live with us! Going into it, I was super nervous seeing as I had never planned a meet up of any sort prior and since it was the first one, I knew I had to make it awesome. As time went on and more people showed, the nerves slipped away. Soon enough I was dancing and rapping (yes, that was a thing that actually happened).
THEN THE SHOW HAPPENED
The show was awesome, Achievement Hunter and Funhaus defiantly know how to tear a house down. I was smiling nearly ear to ear the entire show. The M&G was amazing as well, a few oh the main six recognizing me and Jack even thanking me for the meet up and what I do for the community. That was SO SURREAL to hear and I couldn't be more thankful to be able to do this. Now I have to adjust back to reality and I have a fucking final to study for FML.
Still cant wipe this smile off my face though

I was having a pretty good conversation with a really good friend of mine in the community. At first we started off talking about the excitement for the Let's Play Live Tour as well as other projects and videos that were soon to be released. Suddenly, the mood changed; we began talking about how the hell this all ended up happening. Yes and now you all can insert "You ever wonder why were here?" quote.
Looking back upon my time in this community is so surreal. It's crazy to think back to the first video that got me hooked: Happy Wheels Rage Quit. I remember finding that video, watching it over and over and soon enough be able to quote it by heart. I feel in love with that series and after a bit followed that series which soon led me to watching more and more content. Soon enough I was hooked and its crazy to think that if I had never seen that video; what the hell would I be doing with myself?
Now I've been a fan of things from Boy Bands, to TV Shows and Actors to Youtubers and more. I loved being able to connect with other people over something that I felt super strongly about. The Rooster Teeth Community is something that I could never be able to explain. It was unlike everything I had ever been apart of. I didn't feel like a fan of RT, i felt like I was apart of RT (not actually but i'm sure you understand what I mean.) Everyone in this community has been nothing but kind, loving and accepting and I've made some of the coolest friends that I could ever imagine. I've experienced so many cool things like meetup's, game nights, Let's Play Live and RWBY Tugg events. Meeting everyone and having made cool friends from these experiences is something I didn't know i needed but boy am i glad it happened.
Now, years later I look back at all the cool stuff I've done with this community and I go to events and have people recognize me. Hell, running RTNJ was a dream I never thought I could've achieved and now look at us! Now with the help of other awesome admins, I get to create those awesome experiences for other community members. I am so thankful to everyone at Rooster Teeth, as well as Achievement Hunter, because I dont know where I would be at this moment in time without them or this awesome community.
Sorry I had to get a bit mushy, but y'all are so fucking awesome.
