    • Has it really been 4 months since RTX Austin?

      2 months ago

      breeanna RTX Guardian 2017

      So I realized that I've posted about it literally everywhere else, but never here - the hub for Rooster Teeth and RTX content! I guess it's because I never really felt I could do justice to the experience in words befitting the place I felt my experience best belonged. Now, I'm very late to the party, but I want to post something about it (since Guardian apps for next year are coming up soon omg???).


      I tell everyone about those 4 days. I think about it constantly. There's plenty of reason for that, I promise.


      I won't rehash my whole day-by-day experience, but I will give a probably long-winded overview that's very Feelings-heavy because of what an incredible time I had.


      First - traveling to Austin was a decision I made by myself, fully funded by myself, and organized completely by myself. I am ridiculously proud of me for it. I budgeted food, travel, lodging, and the timeframe all without help. I made a choice to go grocery shopping and spent a total of $70 on food for my entire 5-day stay in Austin, save what I bought at airports. That's pretty solid Girl Scout training right there, I'd say. But my point is, as an anxious person, I was terrified to be traveling somewhere I'd never been - and doing it alone for the first time. I was going to be in a city completely unfamiliar to me, where there would be no one else I knew, and I was going to be there for 5 days. It was very intimidating.


      But RTX was absolutely incredible. I don't know what other words I have for it. Sensory overload. Evidence that the Rooster Teeth Community really, truly is the best one out there. The amount I saw between people, even the amount of support I received as a Guardian from RTX attendees - it was beautiful and humbling and I am so proud to have been a part of it. 


      What all past Guardians say is absolutely true - it'll be some of the hardest you've ever worked and the most fun you've ever had. I had a blast the entire time I was there, and that's because of the community. I also have to acknowledge the Expo Guardians team; everyone on the team is so kind and understanding and so, so hardworking. I am so grateful to have had a team of people like them to help a terrified newbie like me learn the ropes and make sure everything was going okay. I will always appreciate that. I feel like I learned so much from everyone.


      My RTX experience was one for the books. I got to see so many people I'd only dreamed of ever seeing in person, make so many new friends, and help make lots and lots of people smile. Really, what more can you ask for?

      RTX Austin 2018, let's do this.

    • wonder woman

      7 months ago

      breeanna RTX Guardian 2017

      today I took my 12 year-old sister to go see wonder woman, because it was her birthday this week and also because I really wanted to see it. I really wanted her to see it, too, bc growing up, I never had a lady superhero to really look up to and want to be like. I knew wonder woman was out there, but I didn't know who she was or what she did. she worked with superman, or something. anyway, I knew this movie would be important to me bc of how full my heart felt when I saw a huge section of toys in Walmart the other day that was all wonder woman, with a giant poster of her next to it.


      when we walked out of the movie, I was ridiculously pumped. some women next to us said it was "the most intense girl power," and I felt the same. my sister, unprompted, told me, "i like superheroes who are girls." THAT is why we need this movie. THAT is why the first time Diana stepped out onto the battlefield by herself in this movie, in all her glory, I cried, a little. because I know so many young girls are gonna get to see her, this incredibly strong hero, face her obstacles and be amazing and badass and /female./ she is so important, not only for those girls, but for people like me, who grew up in a strange limbo where I never had someone quite like this. I don't think she knows it, but I bet my sister and I felt pretty similarly walking out of the theater.


      like we had a lady superhero to look up to, who is kind and strong and absolutely amazing.


      (also, the movie was really friggin' good.)

      It's official - I've got lodging and plane tickets. I'm going to Austin in a month. It's definitely starting to feel real and I'm SO EXCITED and also kind of nervous. I haven't traveled anywhere in three years, and I've never traveled by myself. This will be an Experience, if ever I've had one. Counting down the days.

    • guardian application

      AAAA I submitted a Guardian application! I am. nervous. Because school got in the way and I forgot about it until last minute, to be totally honest. College makes things difficult. Especially with finals a few weeks away. BUT! I got mine in, I hope, if at 11:59 on the dot, so here's hoping it goes well! Aaaa! It seems like such an incredible experience, and, hey, at least I applied, right?


      No matter what, someday I'll go.


      Wishing good luck and vibes to all applicants. I can't imagine the talent + skillsets of everyone that applied. Hoo boy.


      Also - someday I'll be a bigger part of the community too, I hope! S'just rough when your schedule is school, work, rehearsal, homework, repeat. Blegh.


      EXCITING THOUGH! RTX Y'ALL WOWIE

    • letters

      2 years ago

      breeanna RTX Guardian 2017

      finally sent off my letter to Arryn! it's sort of exciting, this new waiting game. going to write a letter to meg soon, and also probably lindsay, because why not?

      also sent letters to my friends on the other side of the country, one at West Point and one at the Air Force Academy. i don't mean to discount my excitement for a reply from arryn (here's hoping - i enclosed a self-addressed and stamped envelope and everything!), but getting a response from those friends, one of them being my best friend, is probably the most exciting thing. that'll probably take a few weeks yet, though.

      anyway, happy summer to all, and i hope i start exercising more during mine. peace~

    • Monty

      breeanna RTX Guardian 2017

      As I go to bed on a day like today, I feel like I should mention the impact Monty has had on me. It's still difficult for me to grasp the fact that he's gone. My brain won't allow me to really think about it because it hurts too much.

      However, I definitely need to start by saying that I hadn't realised how much of a positive influence he was until today, and that greatly saddens me. Reading all of these memories of him and the stories people have to tell makes me happy and sad at the same time, and I regret not having knowledge enough while he was here to be able to tell him how much his work means to me, to everyone.

      It's not just his work, either. It's his drive to keep creating and encouraging people to create and follow their dreams and desires and just do. That is the part of Monty that I will never forget about. That's the reason I fell in love with Monty Oum. His dedication to creativity and continuing to work on the things he loves impresses me to no end, and his obsession with efficiency just means he was able to accomplish that much more. I can't even begin to explain how much his very essence of being resonates with me. He is such an important part of not only just Rooster Teeth, but the world, because he is able to continuously inspire people to keep creating and imagining and building and doing and, most of all, keep moving forward. He was a beautiful person that I wish I had had the privilege of meeting in person, to speak with, to share a smile, to hug.

      I stand with the RT Community today in a time of grieving, but I also want to celebrate all that Monty is and was, because without him, I know many of us wouldn't be where we are today. I hold his memory with me and use him as the inspiration I know he would want to be - an inspiration for me to get that story done and write that song and create the art I've been thinking about. Because if it were Monty, he would have already done it.

      Goodbye, Monty Oum. We love you, and we're going to miss you a whole hell of a lot.
      Thank you for everything. I can only hope I have half of your resolve.
