New year, new me, (yes I'm aware it's way past new year. Blame international shipping times) new batch of RT Boxes!
2017 is the Chinese year of the Rooster, thus, we're kicking this year off with the Year of the Rooster Teeth box, coming from mister Matt Hullum himself!
First off, this greeting card is quite pretty, the stylised 2017 (the 20 doubles as a Rooster) is really cool.
Matt's got some advice concerning resolutions, and each of these items fit this theme. They're all based around succeeding, and I'm pretty sure I'd trust this dude on the topic.
Let's take a gander at the helpful items this month's box has:
- one RWBY Zwei mousepad (red, adorable)
- one Rooster Teeth Double Gold hat (olive brown? I don't know what the hell to call this colour)
- one Achievement Hunter Fake AH Crew coin bank (green, of course! Also transparent)
- one Rooster Teeth luggage grip (red!)
- one Steam code for The Escapists: The Walking Dead from Let's Play
- one The Eleven Little Roosters sticker
A bunch of quality items. I'm actually glad these are all encouraging items that you can use to better yourself (if you're about that; some people are cool as-is, ya know?).
Matt has suggestions for each item:
Do better at work with the mousepad. To be frank, I don't know if the cuteness would make me better, or make me more distracted than I already am. It seems to be of great quality, even if it's made in China - who cares? I don't. It's pretty big, and I tested out my mouse and yep, it works (but really, my mouse works on anything, even a face). I love this artwork, damn, Zwei is one of the best. That cute little butt.
Exercise more while wearing the hat. Sure, you could do that! I could do that. I should do that. I really like the Double Gold motif, and I'm always up for more DG specific items that I can wear. There's hardly anything on the store and I guess this makes up for that! I've worn it a fair bit today, even if it was scorching hot (curse you, missing Ozone layer!).
If you wanna save money, pop your change in the money box. It's not big enough to fit a whole lotta change, but it can definitely inspire some change (eh?). One of my favourite things is Achievement Hunter's GTA V let's plays, and their crew is close to my heart. Every time I bank a dollarydoo, two dollarydoos, or even a fiddy/twenty/ten/five cent, I'll imagine Gavin getting mugged
If you're a traveler like the people of Rooster Teeth, or even a normal person, you'll go farther with the luggage grip. It's pretty nice - spongey, soft, and you'll probably wanna take this with you for any occasion. I, for one, hate uncomfortable bag handles, and though I've never left this island down unda, I've done some moving during my university days. It gets a bit rough. I know I'll take this with me from here on out!
As for the free game, never heard of it, but it looks cool. I guess I might find out one day, I'm a bit more biased towards my PlayStations....
And lastly, the sticker. Always love a good sticker. Please, help me, I hoard stickers.
And funnily enough, we have the clue to read the first letter of each line of the greeting card to gain some sage advice to help you with your new year's resolutions struggle:
Give up and enjoy life.
Thanks, Matt. I might just do that!
