I guess me watching RWBY put me back into the rotation! Hi everyone...I'm going to shamelessly plug my twitch channel, just in case you decide you want to say hello!
I can't promise I'm good at games.

In less than two weeks, I'll be in Austin, Texas for RTX 2016.
I'm not sure if this fact has really hit me yet.
Last year was my first time at RTX, and really my first time traveling by myself to go on an extended vacation. I was set to stay in a hotel with people I only spoke with online, with only one person I actually met in-person set to be there later in the week. It was a step off a cliff, and I fell deeper into a community I loved. Ignoring the fact that the site change immediately limited my contact with most of these people (sponsor chat), I still cherished all the memories I made and the people I met.
Last year was all about focusing on Press and interviews, as well as meeting people. This year, RTX 2016 will be about reunions. I'm much more confortable with myself, excited to re-connect with those I interviewed last year and hopefully not come off as such a fan girl. But when last year was about the Cast and Crew, this year is about the friends.
I've got a job to do, but every night is already packed with promises to meet up with people I met last year, promising to re-connect and enjoy the city. I'm sure I'll make new friends as well, but this time I feel like I'm returning home to a family, and not a stranger forced to make her path in this large community.
I'll be in Austin, Texas from June 28th - July 5th, and I'm excited to run into everyone. RTX will be packed with work, but outside of that I'll be making stops at 6th street, Gourdoughs, Home Slice, and even spending the Fourth of July down town with the masses.
If you are in town, I hope to catch sight of you during RTX or around town. I'll be dressed in my GlitchFeed gear and Troy by my side, but I'm always open for a hug and hello. Just wait until we are done with any interviews first! I can't wait for RTX, and I'm ready to take on the town! If you are going, I hope you are as excited as I am, and I hope to see you there!

Man has it been awhile. I've constantly considered updating this thing...talking about RTX...talking about my new job...talking about whatever. I guess it just keeps slipping my mind. I'd blame it on the site transition because one of the main factors of me being on the site was sponsor chat, but chat is back and I still seem to be afk.
These days, I've been really ramping up with GlitchFeed, doing game streams in my spare time, and trying to figure out where I want to go from here. A few of my new friends keep looking at me like I'm crazy when I say my life is literally me living at my parents playing video games, but at the same time I'm ok with that. Three days out of the week I'm doing GlitchFeed news, which is a self-project I can use as experience for future jobs, and the other days I'm hosting game streams and getting a bigger following.
For being a lazy-ass gamer, I think I'm actually the most productive I've ever been in my life.
I still question my direction, and consider applying for jobs with my minimal qualifications. I still dream of something bigger, but I think with GlitchFeed I'm finally realizing how to fight for something.
If you don't have the qualifications...train yourself.
If you don't have the experience...practice and put yourself out there.
If you don't have the motivation...stop making excuses and fight for what you want.
After a year and a half, sure, GlitchFeed might be low-view and have a small following, but every few days we get feedback of people who show that they appreciate our work. It's the small support, the friends and the fans, that help get us going and help me stay confident in my direction.
Yeah, so here's my motivational post. Even if no one else sees it, it's nice to finally see multiple ways to motivate myself when work is tough, when I'm feeling down or questioning my direction in life.
And hell yes, Rooster Teeth has a huge influence on me taking a chance and getting out there. After two years of constant viewership, I'm impressed and happy with where I've gone and where I'm going.
That's where I'm at...how are you?

I just checked the calendar, and two weeks from tomorrow I'll be on a flight heading to Austin!
I remember how jealous I was last year of all you RTXers going out, and I finally get to be one of you! I'll be running around with a Press Pass trying to interview as many people as possible, but if you are down to hang let me know and we can (hopefully) meet up if I'm not dead.
Let the HYPE begin!

The past few days have been a whirlwind of video game announcements and news. It can be overwhelming trying to stay up-to-date or catch up with everything that has happened.
Myself, @FischerX, and @jpps have been working hard to provide short highlight videos of everything announced at the conference shows. The best part - the videos are between 3 and 5 minutes, meaning you can get your summary in a short amount of time.
Check out the full playlist of all our E3 coverage right here, or click on the individual conference link below:

If you like what you see, PLEASE, let us know!
Either here or in the video itself, let us know what your thoughts are on the shows or on our videos. We worked hard to get this out, and it is a huge turning point in this project - so I am excited to share it with you and hope to hear what you guys all think!
