      Well, I'm certainly late posting this, due to as soon as RTX was done on the Sunday, I flew to Japan two days after. 


      I've finally found time to sit down and write about the epic even that was RTX London. I was fortunate enough to be selected as a Guardian and I was assigned to the Signatures team. Firstly, I couldn't have been luckier to have such an amazing team (sorry everyone else, but Sigs FTW). We all gelled instantly and worked together extremely well. 


      The first session on the Saturday, in my queue, was Barbara and Lindsey. I remember thinking it was so cool seeing them in person and everything being so surreal, but at the same time, I was not there to see them, I was there for the attendees. I allowed myself a little excitement moment inside for a few seconds, then back to being professional and there for the fans. This session lasted AGES because, and I'm sorry if they see this, they don't stop talking! It isn't a bad thing for the fans and the talent, but when we have a schedule to keep, they need to talk faster! :P However, running over wasn't a problem in this instance. 


      The day carried on, getting people hyped up, including making sure everyone had their tickets out, ready to give to me once they were at the front of the queue, which meant I was the one jumping up and down, getting people to put their tickets in the air and wave them around. It was pretty entertaining and, even though I looked like an idiot, people told me after that it helped them get over their nerves and calmed them down, which was the most rewarding thing about the entire event. After people told me that, I made it my mission to make sure people were calm, had ideas of what they wanted to talk about/ask their selected staff and to take as many pictures as I could of them interacting, so they could remember it to the fullest extent. 


      I think it was honestly more fun that if I were waiting to meet the talent, which is nothing against them, but seeing peoples faces light up (some even crying) with joy at meeting their idols, was reward enough. 


      I've worked many cons and events like this before and I have to say, this was the most fun I've had; it totally didn't feel like work. I think my team leads (Sole and Pockets) were incredible. The head guardians Arileya and Jason did themselves proud in organizing everything running up to the event and during. I have extreme respect for them and would happily help them out if they ever needed it. If there is another RTX London, I would 100% apply to be a guardian again. I'll apply every time there is one, even if I don't get selected. 


      I must stress to hopeful new Guardians, it is an extreme amount of work. I paint a pretty picture of fun and happiness, which is all true, but there is a lot of work included in that. I barely sat down both days, I never stopped helping attendees and hardly interacted with the talent, but that all pails in comparison to what I got out from it. As I said, being able to help everyone was the best. 


      RTX London was, in my eyes, an incredible success. Yes, there were some teething problems, but it was the first year and I think the mass majority had the time of their life. You can't please everyone, but you can do your damnest to try.


      If any attendees remember me, or if I helped you in anyway, let me know! I'd be great to hear how the rest of your event went!


      Thank you RT for the event and allowing me to meet so many amazing people and make new friends. I hope to be apart of such an event soon. Even if I don't get picked, I'll be there attending!!!


      Ps. JAPAN WAS EPIC I MISS IT ALREADY.

    • Meeting Bethany, Megan and Clarissa in London!!!

      Honestly, such a lovely evening in London. I luckily work just around the corner from where the meeting point was and I had the luxury of running into them and Jason (Head Guardian peep) before heading to the main meet. 


      It's so lovely to meet people you highly respect from an online point of view, for them to follow through being just as amazing (and more) in real life. 


      I fully thank all of them for making the meet up a thing and hope I can satisfy (with all my will power) their needs and requests for RTX London as a selected Guardian. 


      To everyone who attended, it was amazing to chat to you random people and hope to see you at RTX London and help you in anyway that I can.

      Well, today at my job I officially moved from System Administrator to Line Manager. Lots of people to look after, lots of reviews to do, meetings to attend... I might live to regret this! Haha. 


      On top of all of that, still doing all of my Sys Admin responsibilities. Oh well, could be worse. 


      Hurray.

    • Bring on RTX London

      AlintheaYoh FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX London Guardian

      I'm so excited for RTX London. Even more excited because I'm one of the lucky Guardians to help bring the event together and keep it running smoothly (regardless of my designated role). 


      I hope everyone will enjoy themselves who are in attendance and their enjoyment is mine!


      See you all there.

    • Weight loss journey

      AlintheaYoh FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX London Guardian

      Being 6"3, I'm lucky that weight distributes and hides more than others, which I've always been grateful for. At the end of December, I was the biggest and heaviest I'd every been at 17 stone 5 pounds. I felt awful, slow and tired. I promised myself I'd change.


      I worried that I would fall back into the routine of just eating crap foods, sweets, chocolate, coke and so on, but I've tried and I can say I'm proud of myself. 


      Today, I'm 15 stone 8 pounds and still going. I'm feeling better, more awake, energy and everything. 


      I don't really know why I'm posting this, but I guess I hope people who also are struggling can find solace in that it's possible, you just need to work hard a little to get it going. 


      My goal is to be down to around 14 stone 5 pounds by October, as it's a busy month for me; Irish wedding, RTX London Guardian and Japan holiday. 


      I doubt anyone is reading this, but if you are struggling with fitness and want to ask me anything, who has been there and is going through it, feel free! :) 

    • I'm glad more tickets were put on sale...

      It's mental how quickly RTX London sold out. I expected it to go quickly, but 20 minutes into wide public sale is crazy. Makes me wonder how many allocated spaces were given by Excel and how many halls we'll be based in. I'm guessing 2-4 halls this time around. 


      The hype is real and seriously excited to represent Rooster Teeth as a Guardian for the first time and hopefully not the last!

    • Well, no waiting to buy RTX ticket this morning...

      Since I'm lucky enough to have been picked to be a Guardian, I don't have to wait for the ticketing system to open up. 


      Originally, I was going to go for a VIP ticket, but now I've got the best ticket in the house. Haha. 


      Good luck to everyone who's purchasing; hope you get the tickets you want.

      Yep. That double gold is too strong. Early access for those RTX London VIP tickets are too good. So excited. Also very interested in what the $60 boxes are!  benson

      Let the hype begin. 


      Booked at the Travel Lodge just around the corner, so nice and easy to get too from Friday to Sunday. If I am chosen to be a Guardian, then I don't exactly have far to travel for Thursday, as I live in London already. 


      HYPEEEE!
