      Today, I finalized the paper work for my apartment, signed the lease, and acquired my keys.
       

      Tomorrow, I move. 

      I lived in my current apartment for 3-years with my little sister and it's been enjoyable beyond belief. I decided to take several steps in this apartment, from joining GGG to going to England. This apartment was always my home, my comfort and quiet place where I could kick back after a long day and relax. I'll miss the trees the most, they tower around the back deck and transformed my city-dwelling life into a far-away jungle. The stream would rush with water after a storm. Nights were quiet and safe. I loved living here, but it was time for Hailey and I to move on with our own living situations, separate from one another so she could have space for her magnificent life and I could have space for my gaming. 

      I'm terrified yet excited, nervous yet confident in this move. I'll be taking a massive step forward towards my future that is still very unknown to me. A step towards letting go of my little sister and letting her wander this world in her own amazing way. A step towards becoming a sponsored twitch affiliate as I continue to put myself out there more and more each day. A massive step towards my life, or what I should hope to be the beginning of an awesome journey. I'm moving forward. 

      I'm so ready. :)

    • Rest in peace, Allied.

      I don't know where to begin or how to gather my thoughts for this, but I'm sure I can say something to not only put my mind at ease but maybe someone else's as well. 

      I play Smite. I've played Smite for a year and a half now and I love the game yet hate (it's complicated) it at the same time. I mainly carry (use hunters/ranged) and I enjoy winning. The community can be toxic, just like any other gaming community out there, yet many of the smite community rallied around an individual to lift him up out of the darkest times he would ever face. 

      David Hance, better known to the Smite community as Allied, was a professional smite player who played for various teams including Team Snipe and AFK Gaming who then turned into EnVyUs. He was signed to Luminosity Gaming in February of 2017 as a 6th man substitute for the professional smite playing team. He was, on all levels, one of the best smite players to ever get his hands in on professional gaming. He tried hard, he won games, and he won the hearts of smite players around the world. 

      Yet with achievements, with the glory and the fire of the world wrapping you in sweet warmth, comes a coldness that creeps upon us all. With life comes death, the sad realization that you cannot continue to achieve greatness forever and sometimes the end comes sooner than we can bare to understand. Allied...David, died on May 3rd after a year-long battle with stage 4 cancer. He was loved, he was cared for, he was scared to die. He lived life for 25-years. 

      I don't know what I am trying to say or if I am really saying anything at all. I'm sad, heart broken for a man I never knew. My condolences go out to his family, his friends, the love of his life, and the smite community. What I want you all to do is live life, to the fullest. Take care of yourselves and love with your entire being.

      Life is precious, cherish every moment.

    • Dear you,

      1 month ago

      AshleyBren

      It's been yet another few months since my last update/journal and I'm back, with a greatness! Exciting things are happening around these here parts and I'm here to bring you the news on my life. We all know how much you enjoy news on my life. So sit back, kick up your feet, and eat more chicken!

      Even though I'm not entirely active on this account anymore I still love Rooster Teeth and the people who have created (in my mind) the most perfect web series of all time. I love Red Vs. Blue. It's what got me into this whole mess! And now I love it so much that I am going to Austin, Texas just to see the crazy bunch of hooligans that made such a beautiful work of art. I'll get to finally set foot in a massive building filled with you lovely folks and I couldn't be more excited! So I truly hope that I will see many, if not all of you at RTX Austin 2017!

      Now with Texas comes a whole lot of heat! With heat comes complications in rising body temperatures and in order for me to kind of fight back against the sun I've decided to revise my weight-loss goal into something much more obtainable. By July of 2017 I hope to hit 155 lbs. 20 lbs shy of my original goal but not far off from where I am at now. I'll still have to work for it but I am more than prepared and completely ready to take this head-on! 155, I'm coming for you! 

      But wait, there's more! I'm moving out in about a month and some odd days and I am super psyched for my new adventures! I'm so ready to live on my own again (I love my sister but we do not make the best roommates at times) just so I can finally set up my PC in my own space and really crack down on getting my Twitch and YouTube all set up for upcoming operations that I shall explain in a later journal. So I probably won't be able to update again until I've completely moved in and settled and even then, it may not be until after RTX! So I hope that you are all doing fabulous. Really, I truly do. 

      I know it's hard keeping up with friends on this new site. The frustrations are overwhelming when I think about it too much. Yet, I love being able to come back every so often and write a journal just to relieve some personal stress as well as give myself the opportunity to speak to you all again. It's not nearly as often as I would like but I always know that I can come back to the RT site and see friendly faces and encouraging wisdom. You guys, this is the greatest community on the internet and I couldn't be more proud to be apart of it, in my very very small way. See you at RTX in Austin?

      With all of the love, 
      Ash

    • It's a new year, I'm still trying to get over how horrible I was...

      4 months ago

      AshleyBren

      It was 3-years ago that I told him I would stop talking to him, that I selfishly deleted him out of my life entirely and tried my hardest to forget I was the horrible person. I tried to make up excuses for myself.


      He didn't tell me what was going on.

      He didn't talk to me enough. 

      He didn't contact me for weeks on end. 


      Little did I know what horror he was going through, little did I know that he was in such a hard place in his life. Yet I left, I left and I didn't look back... until yesterday that is. 


      It's been 3-years, I've looked him up on Facebook 100 times, I typed, retyped, and deleted messages. I feared the worst, I felt sick not just for how I treated him but for what he was going through and my lack of compassion. I looked him up yesterday and typed a few words, a simple sentence, it lacked compassion still but I needed to know. I needed to.


      "What happened to you?"

      And he responded... 


      And we talked about everything, we talked for hours. I apologized a million times over. I was such a horrible person back then. I should have stayed when he needed people the most. But I was selfish, I was stupid, I was immature. I've grown so much since then, but I will never stop apologizing. I could hardly look at myself for the longest time. I was sick to my stomach, I was a pitiful mess of emotion, anxiety and depression filled my days. 


      He responded, and he told me that there was no need for me to apologize... 

      I will never stop apologizing.

    • Nothing but good news.

      It's the beginning of the work week and the end of October, I figured today would be as good as any to post a little update. I hope everything has been going well for you all! Lets begin. 

      I. Love. Being. Single.

      During the past several (six) years I have been in constant relationships. Some were good, some were total shit. My ex was the last straw on the camel's back though. He showed me what it would be like to be married at 24, kids by 25, and tied down forever. A life that I see nothing wrong with as long as it is done with the right person. He was clearly the wrong person yet he was the right person to show me that I need to focus on myself for the time being. I have vowed to stay single until I feel that I am ready for a relationship.

      I have been losing weight and I feel so much better.
      I have gained a lot of confidence in myself.
      I have been focusing on my friendships more and I absolutely love it. 
      I have learned a lot about how to control my anxiety. 
      I have been enjoying my life. 

      Erm, what else can I say really? Life has been splendid! I bought Skyrim so I am constantly sitting in a party on Xbone as we (friends and people) all play. That's fun! This has been short but I hope you all have a great month of November! 

      Happy Halloween!

      Hi everyone, how are you all doing on this lovely Thursday? I'm doing very well at the moment. It's been two weeks since my last update so I thought I'd come back around just to pop in and let everyone know what is going on with me. 

      I want to apologize real quickly to all of my friends, I'm sorry I don't keep up with you all as much as I used to. I personally hate this new site. I think it's total crap so using it daily, like I used to, is just not possible for me to do. I've hated this new site since it came out. I hope they can get it working eventually but for now I'm just here to say hello, give updates on myself, and hope that you all are doing well yourselves. 

      Well, to begin, my weight loss is going phenomenally! I'm not going to tell you all how much I've lost thus far but I am dropping it quickly and healthily. I feel so great. I'm sticking to this routine 100% and not giving up, even when I hit my goal weight I want to maintain and gain muscle back in my arms and legs. That's all very far down the line though. I'm doing this correctly this time around. I'm on a very healthy diet, I have not cut out anything entirely so my body doesn't become deficient and I become hungry for said deficiencies then over-eat and gain weight back. It will take me a bit longer to lose the weight but my goal should be hit just a month before RTX, which I fully plan on attending next year. 

      With weight loss comes going to the grocery store, with going to the grocery store comes making my own meals at home, and with making my meals at home comes saving a ton of money. So honestly, savings is kicking it's own ass without me even having to notice it is doing so. Losing weight is helping in far more categories than one! Woot!

      Overall, I feel great. Life is going so well right now. I am gaining so much confidence and motivation in myself that I feel as though I can conquer anything that comes my way. I will lose this weight, I will save money for my future, and I will see you all at RTX 2017! <3 

    • Single, again.

      I should have seen this coming but I tend to never do. Why is it that I'm always oblivious to how my S/O truly feels? This time was completely out of the blue. It's hit me like a pound of bricks, even though there is a massive sense of relief as well. I feel like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders for various reasons.

      Blaine was a great guy. Would always make me laugh, was a goof, and knew how to have fun yet still relax. He was great. Country boy that I never thought I would date but did. Knew how to shoot a gun, drink whiskey, and start fires all while wearing boots with shorts. He was someone that I could have honestly saw a future with, in fact we even planned for a future that I believed in to the fullest. Yet, here I sit, single again.

      Am I shocked? Of course. He broke up with me over a video game. But here is the deal. We made a promise about two or three weeks ago that I would stop playing Smite (because it pisses me off from time to time) and he would stop chewing (because chewing is disgusting and a great way to get gum disease). So anyway, next day into our promise he completely breaks his end of the bargain and chews. I get it, big addiction and needs time to stop. So I didn't do much about it. Well, last night I wanted to play a game. I had been watching Hulu for two weeks straight and it was driving me nuts. So I go back and re-download Smite, a game with some substance, and I played one game. That ended my relationship. One game of Smite was enough to break my (now ex) boyfriend into a million fragile pieces and drive him into insanity.

      Honestly, I get it, I lied. I told him I would never play Smite again. However, I wanted to play something with my friends and they had just gotten onto Smite and I thought that would be fun. Then the servers went down for maintenance and I never got the chance. One. Game. Ended. My. Entire. Five. Month. Relationship. We even went shopping Sunday and he bought me a promise ring. I just, I couldn't believe how crazy he went. But at the end of the day, I'm fairly okay with it happening.

      It hurts, my heart hurts. I thought we could look past our differences and love one another for the people we were before our relationship but he could not do that, at all. I changed a lot about myself, to the point where I deleted almost all of my friends on Xbox so he wouldn't feel so scared about who I may or may not be talking to. I drove two hours, four hours total, just to see him almost every weekend. We went to Iowa to see my family, I showed him a lot about myself and he told me that he loved me for all of it. Yet it took him less than five minutes to decide that I wasn't worth his time anymore.

      So yeah, that single life. Back at it again.

      This time around though, I'm really going to focus on myself. This relationship taught me a lot about the kind of person I want to be and how I should treat myself when it comes to being in a relationship with someone else. I'm not letting someone tell me what I can and cannot do, who I can and cannot talk to, and how I can and cannot live my life. This life is mine, it's the only one I got. I'm not about to change everything about myself for someone that didn't love me for the person I am in the first place.

      First comes weight loss. I already have my diet plan and now with the extra time on the weekends I can easily work out and buy groceries as well as make my meals ahead of time. I can also stay around the house and actually clean it all up without feeling like I am rushed to do so, which will allow for less stress. I'll have far more time to really tackle my weight and get down to my goal with ease.

      Secondly, savings. I spent a lot of money in this relationship and it was fun doing so but I feel broke and in debt almost all of the time. I want to go to Japan and South Korea and the only way I'll make it to those very expensive places is if I save my money, spend reasonably, and hit my goal savings. Now I won't be stressed out and full of anxiety in a year when I was supposed to move in with him. Now I can save my money for traveling, which makes me so so soooo happy.

      Thirdly, myself. I'm going back to college for what I want to do. I want to get my degree and be a bit more accomplished than, "well I graduated High School", when people ask about my education. Going back to college will allow me to refocus and regain a lot of the confidence that I lost.

      Fourthly, I am done rushing my future. With time my path in this life will become clear. Until then I am done trying to push everything. My life will work out exactly how I want it to, whether that be starting a family at 30 or adopting my own babies when I am fully ready. Whether that be getting married or staying single forever. I'm fine with however it turns out because I know it is my path.

      Well, that's about all I can type today. Pretty sure everyone in my office is wondering why I am typing a book in here. I'm not, although I do have a good idea for a book that I would like to look into getting started. We shall see though! I hope you all have a great day today! <3

    • Life in rambles.

      I've been just awful at updates. I don't know whether or not to number them or just go with the flow. Alright, flowing with the go.

      So it's been a month since I've updated about updating on my life. Everything is going very well! I miss you all though. Every time I think about the old site I remember the joys we had as we frolicked through the forums and watched new profiles being created on the "everyone" feed, oh the hundreds of pictures of one person I saw. So blissfully missed. Yet here I am, on the new site that I am still not super fond of and well, "updating" because my life consists of work, video games, sleep, food, and boyfriend.

      Wait, boyfriend? Yes, boyfriend. What is this man's name, you ask? Blaine, otherwise known as Blainey, baby, sweetheart, handsome, goofball, silly, and other names that I shall not say here because privacy is privacy. He is the sweetest man on the planet, or at least to me he is. "But where did you meet," asked the voice in my head. Well, long story short. Xbox. Super short story that was never long. Yes, Xbox. What game? Black Ops 2. When I first met him on the game he didn't become my friend. I was the one that befriended him. Then when we met in real life he didn't like me, I was the one that really liked him. We've been dating for darn-near close to 5-months now. It's been really good. We've had our good moments, that's for sure. He is super country which I find refreshing considering I've been confined to the city for the past 8-years. We go really well together but being apart during the week is terrible, I hope that changes in the near future.

      Other than my boyfriend and our relationship, working for my grandparents and living on my own are both going very well. The business is booming right now. We are hitting all-time record high sales and really boosting the year. I'm very happy with my job here. I'm also taking a class on learning how to read blueprints. It's interesting stuff and has given me a lot of courage to eventually go back to school.

      I've been living out on my own for close to 4-years now. It's been awesome. Hailey (my sister) and I live together in a really cute little apartment so she helps a lot when it comes to splitting costs. Bills are bills, always will be bills. I'm used to being an adult now, still trying to figure out how relationship correctly. I'm learning but I'm not very good at it.

      (incoming sad rant)

      I guess the main thing is I don't appreciate myself or the people in my life who are here now. I dwell a lot on my past and constantly look towards the future so I'm never really just here. I need to change that, I know that. The past is behind me for a reason, I just miss it a lot. I have a lot of resentment bottled up from leaving my childhood friends and moving to a massive city. It's really fucked up my perception of what a relationship consists of, especially when people in the city are so easy to forget your existence with the existence of millions around them. Hence why I need to get back out to the country. It's where I honestly belong, so I'm hoping that in the future I am there. But again, that's in the future. I'm still not really here. I'm still in the city, in my office, with the loud ass highway right next to me, and I'm still dwelling and dwindling. I need to focus on the now, and no that's not because it is lunch time. I need to focus on what makes me happy right now.

      Blaine makes me happy.
      My parents, they make me happy.
      Hailey makes me happy.
      My family in general make me happy.


      My friends here on RT make me happy. I'm sorry for the lack of updating and story-telling.

      Focusing on being body positive makes me happy. Losing weight and eating healthy makes me happy too. Doing well in my class. Watching a really great series on Hulu. Buying new clothing. All of that makes me happy. There are many things that make me happy right now. I need to focus more on the happiness I have now and I need to stop this silliness of thinking that just because I think about my past, maybe have an occasional dream about it, doesn't mean I should stay stuck in it.

      (end sad rant)

      Life is going well, overall.

        We call it Spanish food if we're cooking it for foreigners

      • AshleyBren

        2 years ago

        That's great to hear! Gosh, I just love cultural foods. Can't wait to try some authentic Spanish food now. You do call it Spanish food, right? I'm sure it's just "food" to you but eh, I like when it has a cultural value to it. Soy Sauce is great! Adds such a distinct flavor to things like chicken and veggies. Definitely a great ingredient for cooking, even if your just cooking rice. Yum yum yum. Now I want food but it's too late for food. Darn. >.<

      • kemix9207

        2 years ago

        No, but we're learning. We've been adapting all kinds of foods to our diets. Like soy sauce or curry. I learned a few new recipes during my Erasmus.

      • AshleyBren

        2 years ago

        Makes a lot of sense. You Spaniards are all pretty nice looking people. Well cool. You'll have to cook up a great meal for GGG whenever we can all get together! Maybe it could be like a pot luck of all different foods from different cultures! I can totally cook up a mean curry, even though I'm obviously just American but still... Curry is my thing! Do you do curry often in your culture?

      • kemix9207

        2 years ago

        Well, ours is less spicy and more rice based than theirs. Plus, we have better raw materials which helped us creating the mediterranean diet, which is why we're all so healthy and sexy.

      • AshleyBren

        2 years ago

        Dude, all of it. I want all of the Spanish food. Thing is, I've had Mexican. What are the differences between the two? I know Mexican food is super fatty, hence why Americans are pretty fat. Did you know that Mexico is now the fattest country in the world? It's because they have such amazing food and they bring it all up to us along with their amazing culture. Love it down there, except close to the boarder. Boarder towns are scary AF.

        Oh my gosh Kemix. If I become a millionaire can I hire you to cook spicy authentic Spanish foods for me?

        Reasons. To England, obviously. The NHS is always looking for spaniards.

        It's something like this

        Why do you hate it so much and where are you going to get away from it?

        Fuck no! I hate this country. Can't wait to leave it forever.

        I grew up here. This is my home. If I don't hold my own home in high regards then I hold my entire life in low regards. Do you not hold any respect for Spain?

        No, you probably make better tacos. :)

      • kemix9207

        2 years ago

        You have a high opinion of your country.

        Also, go make your own tacos

      • AshleyBren

        2 years ago

        No, you're just a person from Spain.

        You see, Americans don't stereotype the rest of the world just because the rest of the world stereotypes us and we certainly don't believe in those made up stereotypes just because someone tells us about them.

        Matt showed me this about two hours ago and I absolutely love it. It is so very true. Kansas is a beautiful golden state but it lacks any trees, houses, people, anything really. It's just here. A bunch of farm land and wheat fields. :p

      Ash!!! Happy Valentine's Day~! Ash, you're such an incredible person - it's YOUR fault that I became so involved in the GGG! You were open, accepting, and so friendly. You read my rambles and worries and responded to them with reassurance and kindness - I always felt better after sending you those messages! You told me to stick around and keep trying; and I did! And now, I'm part of this incredible group that includes wonderful people such as yourself. So thank you for that, Ash. And thank you for being so lovely and great to game with. :] You're awesome, you're superb - keep being you!

        My dearest friend Emma. I don't know where to start. I don't know where to end. I know even really know where the middle is either. Emma. You are so amazing that it is almost incomprehensible. I remember when we first started talking, you were very shy about joining and the best I could say was just to throw yourself into it and expect for the very best because these dudes, the dudes we have fallen in love with, are all absolutely beautiful people. I knew from the moment you started opening up and being active with GGG that you would become someone that everyone would admire, and they truly do. I admire you and your grace, your intelligence and your laughter. You are so very special, not only to Kelly but to everyone in the group. Without you it would never be the same so that means you have to stay around forever. That means we have to be friends forever. Deal?

        Please continue to be an utterly awesome person. Don't ever change. I cannot wait to meet both you and Kelly at RTX this year! The excitement is building! Woot! But for today, have a very Happy Valentine's Day.

        Lots and lots of hugs and loves,

Lets start at the beginning, I fell in love with the dogs first but when I finally started talking to you and getting to know you I knew that we would become great friends, and we have! You are a wonderful man with so much love in your heart. I'm so happy that you and Alpha are a couple, you two truly deserve one another and the happiness that you bring each other. I squealed a little bit seeing the news, even though I totally saw it coming from miles away! You two are peas in the same pod! I'm so happy that you are my friend and I hope to meet both you and Alpha in the very near future at RTX! You, you continue to stay just as brilliantly amazing as you always have been.
        With lots of love and hugs,

Opening up my comments and scrolling, seeing yours, it made me burst into tears. This place has given me so much more then I could ever ask for and you are a huge part of that. You are so supportive and so kind-hearted. Your sincerity and your happiness will keep this world turning. I hope that when we meet at RTX we will have many hugs and many selfies and maybe visit a bar and do some karaoke! I have made pipes! Watch out!

        I hope your day is just as awesome as you are. Much much MUCH love,

        John,

        I know we have had our rough times but I would not trade our friendship for anything. You've been there for me through a lot and you've taken my anger and made me smile. You always play video games with me even when I'm in a pissy mood. I don't give you a lot of credit very often but just know that it is there. We are friends for a reason, for many reasons. Thank you for making me happy when I'm down and I'm glad I can do the same for you. I hope we can continue to be friends for a very long time.

        You know that feeling when your like hair feels like it's standing up? That's what it was like towards the end of that video for me. :) definitely in my top 10 for sure! My mom made sure I listened to a lot of The Beatles growing up. :] There is a song for every mood I am in I think.
