      In reference to my last post I had a weeks worth of exams that ruined my sanity, but the business has all blown up in my face.


      Let's just say all the organizations I'm a part of, all the classes I'm taking, all the meetings I go to caused something awful to happen and there is no going back. So yeah.....I guess doing all that you can in the end doesn't exactly work out. 


      Now I'm just trying for things to be normal for a bit, stay busy, but not too busy, learn from my mistakes. I'm not too sure what exactly I'm trying to do, but I'll get there.


      (I know this was all cluttered and didn't make a whole lot of sense because I didn't say what happened, but, it was nice to just talk about it.)

      Now that we are farther into school....I'm losing it. There are so many moving parts this year I have to take care of and I'm slowly becoming a ball of stress. I haven't even had an exam yet!

      Well my summer is officially over and I am back at college. 


      It is sad when the highlight of your summer was 1 game of corn hole that went on for an hour and a half. (For those who don't know what corn hole is the average game length is 15ish minutes, if that)


      So you can say I've had a pretty interesting summer....

    • Let's Play Naps

      JMonty

      So for years I have been watching Let's Plays and it has gotten to the point that the sound of the guys doing stupid shit, killing things, or sucking at mini-golf is just a way for me to sleep. Now when I want to take a nap I go lay on my couch, put on an old Let's Play that I've seen before, watch it for a bit and just doze off. 


      This is probably weird and makes no fucking sense but it somehow works. Don't judge me.

      I got a job crewing for local concerts and events setting up all their speakers and lights beforehand! It is an awesome job that I already have experience doing because of theater. 


      Downside is I don't have guaranteed hours and they come few and far between. Upside is that it pays super well and you get a minimum pay for when you do work.


      I HAVE MONEY AGAIN!

      So, I'm broke. I am basically out of money and I need a job. I have been applying to a bunch of places, but I guess people hate college students. No where around me wants to hire people for summer jobs. Ugh...I miss having an income and not having student loans...

    • Old Friends

      5 months ago

      JMonty

      I have been a member of this site now for just under 4 years, if I math right, and as I've said before so much has changed in this community since then. There have been new community members, a new site, etc. However, in my mind the most prevalent change is old members leaving. 


      Yes, I understand that people move on and things and I can always make new friends with the new community members. However, all those people I used to know when I first joined I still consider friends. Looking back through old conversations I see these people I used to talk to on the daily and I get nostalgic in a way. Then I click their profiles to see if they have been active recently and almost none of them have within a year and it saddens me to see them not be active anymore. All these people that I used to be so close to, now I have no real way to see how they are doing. It is painful. I don't know how many else of you notice this or feel this way to look at old threads and realize that half those people don't even use the site anymore and are gone. 


      *********************************************************************************************************************

      With the new site it seems harder to make friends on the forums as well. There are little to no forums that are used frequently anymore as they used to be. People post more slowly than before. Also, people make journals less than before. There used to be almost one journal a day from people. Plus we have to click a link to see these journals anymore instead of them just being on a feed on our profiles which made, in my mind, people more connected and obliged to look at others journals. Now people can just dismiss these things that people put out there without even looking at them. The site is ultimately smoother, but it feels like it came at a cost of the majority of the community aspect of things. 


      I could be wrong, I could be 100% ultimately wrong. I know that I have been wrong before, and if I am I am sorry. I just feel like whenever I come here I'm alone now instead of being part of something larger that used to be one of the best parts of my day. 

      ***********************************************************************************************************************


      Anyways back to my initial point after that tangent. I seriously miss all the old people that used to use the site and I really wish for them to come back for at least a short while. I would love to see where they are now or something because I hate letting friends go. I hate the fact of knowing that you wont ever talk to someone again that you used to be so close to. I know that this is part of life and everything but I really care for all of my friends and because I didn't have many for a time I cherish all the ones that I have and I hate seeing them leave in any sense. I do not know how many of you are sad about all the people who have left the site since you joined or not. What do you think?


      All I want to say to all my old friends who have left the site since I joined is:

    • JMonty's Rooster Teeth Timeline

      6 months ago

      JMonty

      Since Rooster Teeth just celebrated its 14th birthday (Happy Birthday Rooster Teeth) I felt like it would be cool for me to go back and see how my interaction with Rooster Teeth has progressed over the years because of how big a part it has played in my life.


      November 2009: I watched Gus show where all the treasures are in Uncharted 2. (My very first Rooster Teeth video ever)

      -------> After watching that video I saw RvB season 6 in recommended and watched all of season 6 that was out in one night (It was a good season to start because it was right after Blood Gulch)


      2009-2010: I continued to watch RvB and achievement videos as they came out. Even for games I didn't own just because I thought everyone was great. 


      January 2011: LtMKilla (Michael Jones) released his first Rage Quit video for Rooster Teeth when the community got content on the main channel. I began watching these religiously.


      December 2011: The very first Rooster Teeth Lets Play (Saints Row 3) came out and I watched it the day it came out and loved it


      July 2012- Apr. 2013: This was the hardest time in my life. I lost my Grandma, I sank into a pit of depression and suicidal thoughts, I had virtually nothing to make me happy in my life, except Rooster Teeth. AH and RvB were the light in all the darkness in my life and helped me through it all with the laughter it provided.


      February 2013: One if not my favorite Let's play was released. I have easily watched this Let's Play 10+ times because it makes me laugh every time. That Let's Play is Minecraft ep. 37: Clouds. "GAVIN WINS IT FOR RAY!"


      September 1st 2013: Rooster Teeth releases Game Time with Bernie and Gavin talking about how Gavin was a fan long before working at Rooster Teeth. This inspired me to finally make an account on the site.


      September 6th 2013: I finally joined the RT website and it was a great decision. My first post was on the "Introductions" page and the very first person who was my friend was @Mochrome


      Sep. - Nov. 2013: I became a part of the community and started talking on all the forums. I also started greeting people on Introductions....so much confetti


      Oct (or Nov) 2013: I posted my first post in "Let's Be Friends" or LBF which became my home on the site. I may not talk to many of the people from this forum anymore, but they still all hold a very dear place in my heart. 


      Nov 2013 - 2015: I played a pretty active role in the community for this time and I made so many wonderful friends that I still cherish even though I don't talk to them really anymore. Eventually I stopped coming to the site as much because my depression returned in really bad swing and I had no motivation to do anything or have any human interaction.


      2016: I tried to return to the site to once again be pulled away by life. I still feel bad about leaving. 


      Now: I have returned. Although I don't post as frequently as I once did I still love this place.


      2013 - Now: I keep myself updated on everything Rooster Teeth at all times and I still love it just as much as I did when I found it all the way back in 2009. 


      In Conclusion: I love this place. I love this community. I love these people. Everything about Rooster Teeth has made my life all the better and I couldn't imagine life without it. I wouldn't be the same as I am today without Rooster Teeth in my life. It is honestly weird to look back at how far my love of Rooster Teeth goes.

      7OoFJV0.gif

      (P.S.: I definitely teared up when going through the forums from 3+ years ago and seeing everyone I remember talking on them)


      I would love to hear everyone else's story with how they got into Rooster Teeth and how Rooster Teeth affected them through the years. I'm sure you all have great stories.

      Yes to muse. Yes to PS3. Four to you, glen coco.

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        I've tried to learn some of their stuff on guitar. Some is hard some is easy.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        Yes!! Yeah that's true .-.

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Plus they sound just as good on album as live. They are very very hard to beat, but everyone argues.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        I know right? All of their songs are so incredible

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Knights Of Cydonia is my favorite but my top 5 are: Knights Of Cydonia, Supremacy, Hysteria, Panic Station and finally Showbiz (Resistance and Plug In Baby being very close). Its hard to pick favorites out of so many songs you love though.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        New Born is my absolute favourite, but I tend to list my top five: New Born, Muscle Museum, Glorious, Futurism and In Your World. You?

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Returning to their roots awesome! To more heavier guitar and rock. What is your favorite song by them?

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        Ah that sounds great :') I'm so stoked for their next album because they've said it's gonna be more like Showbiz and OOS and they're my faVOURITES so it's gonna be fucking great

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        I first heard Uprising then was hooked from then on. I did a project and speech on them in school because we were allowed to pick anything and while girls were doing JB and 1D I was the cool one doing Muse. I can't wait 'til their next album comes out so I have more songs to listen to.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        I became a fan of them just after Absolution came out and my parents have been a fan of theirs since Showbiz first came out. I have every album and almost every song when you consider the b-sides, and I've seen them live twice :D

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Wow. I can't say I've been a fan that long. I discovered them around 2 1/2 years ago while on Pandora on Cage The Elephant radio. They make me so happy too I have all their albums except Showbiz. I was also lucky enough to see them in concert.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        I've been a fan for over 11 years now, they make me so happy

      • JMonty

      • AnneLydolf

        3 years ago

        Oh okay then :) Not swearing? Don't think I could do that... I swear too much for it to be possible! And yeah, I hate exams... spend most of my time reading and reading and reading...

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        I'm better as of now. Just the weekend was torture for me. Oh exams they are the absolute worst. My main problem now is just not swearing which is harder than anticipated.
