    • June 1st: what do you have to show for it?

      2 years ago

      starkidjones

      We’re halfway through 2016! Holy smokes, where did the time go?


      I made 3 New Years resolutions at the beginning of the year, so time to check in:


      1. Commit to a regular workout routine. -insert check emoji- YES! 6 months in and I feel confident in saying that I finally, finally, have some semblance of a weekly workout routine. Beach runs twice a week after work and intermittent core workouts.
      2. Program my own portfolio website. Halfway checkmark? Maybe 1/3rd? I took a programming course to brush up on my HTML and I’ve sketched out website ideas. Actual programming? Not yet. Will get there!
      3. Brush up on my French. Negative, no progress. Would love to download a free app or something that keeps me going. Still 6 more months to turn it around! Allons-y!

      How is 2016 treating you? Are you keeping up with any resolutions?

    • HI HOW ARE YOU

      2 years ago

      starkidjones

      WOW hi hello, IT'S ME, EMILY.


      I've needed to take some time to get my shit together, but now that 2016 is well under way I wanted to say bonjour! Hi! Hello! I've missed a lot and missed YOU a lot!


      I had a weird situation happen to me last year it brought me down and I struggled to find my enthusiasm. Kind of fell out of touch. I'm feeling 1000% better and have a lot of positivity in my life right now. I've checked in on the RTX Guardian group and with updates coming soon, I wanted to post! Also, RT's 13th birthday so ZING!


      Since last summer I've attended several cons, enrolled in a coding course, was accepted as a Guardian for RTX2016, and found a guy who likes me enough to date me??? wat


      What's one new thing happening with you? :D

    • SDCC Review Incoming

      starkidjones

      The last two weeks for me have been a complete rollercoaster of up and downs, so bear with me as I get my thoughts together. I'm looking forward to sharing some SDCC photos and stories!

      Short summary? I had a totally awesome time, and it was just the break I needed after a hectic week.

    • Cosplay Update

      3 years ago

      starkidjones

      (I suppose it's not really a cosplay update if I haven't made a first post about it to begin with, but alas.)

      If you had told me a month ago that I'd be spending my Sunday night turning a wig into dreadlocks, I'd have given you a really funny look. But that's exactly what I was doing! I can add synthetic dreadlocks to my repertoire (it is quite an interesting process involving steam and a straightener).

      I did my first ever real cosplay as Doctor Who's Clara Oswald at WonderCon this year and had a ton of fun. With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, I decided I wanted to cosplay again - this time as Orphan Black's Cosima (hence the dreadlocks). It's coming together pretty well so I'm super excited!

      I'll post another update soon with pictures, but here's a pic of the makeup test!

    • #RTE3 Meetup

      3 years ago

      starkidjones

      Last night I attended the E3 Rooster Teeth meetup with my friend (and fellow Guardian!) @_entropic_! It was absolutely incredible to see so many fans turn out for the event, and even cooler that the RT staff stuck around so all the fans could meet them. They must have been completely and thoroughly exhausted, but still made time for everyone. We overheard Burnie say he thought there would only be around 20 people, but there must have been over 100. It was SO. RAD.

      I had a blast catching up with people, seeing so many happy fans in one place (outside of RTX, that's new for me!), and getting a chance to talk to some of my faves. Thank you so much for hanging out RT, it was a delight.

      Thanks for the pics, @MegTurney and @bgibbles!

    • CatCon Review

      3 years ago

      starkidjones

      As you may have figured out, I really love cats. I am that person who will pet random cats on the street. I attended a cat show last year which took my love to new heights. My family even owns two kitties who are 17 years old!

      This weekend I may or may not have coerced some friends into attending CatCon with me. It was packed with attendees wearing their crazy cat lady badge proudly on their sleeve, dressed in an array of cat ears and apparel. There were all sorts of vendors selling anything from catnip and toys to Pusheen plushies and t-shirts. It was a cat-lovers paradise and all sorts of fun. Of course my favorite part was the cat adoption space - I absolutely fell IN LOVE with a cross-eyed tabby cat. Took everything in me not to bring her back home with me (which would have been an interesting trip seeing as I took the Metro there).

      If you're interested in reading a good summary of the event, I recommend this New York Times article: At CatCon, Breaking a Stereotype in Ears and Whiskers.

    • A Year Later

      3 years ago

      starkidjones

      I think this is the first time I've posted something really personal so sorry if it's a little TMI! I included lots of pictures to keep it entertaining. smiley7.gif

      A year ago I graduated from USC, a Communication major and Digital Studies minor ready to take on the world. After seeing my social media feeds flooded with this year's new Trojan graduates I spent some time reflecting on the last 365 days (and how much of the world I have actually taken over. Total: my apartment in Los Angeles, and even that's a tenuous grip at best).

      In the past year I got to go on some really incredible adventures. I spent last 4th of July in Austin and volunteered for my first RTX. I was able to take my dad to Disneyland for his birthday and foot the bill myself. I experienced my first ever snowfall while in New York City with some of my best friends in the world. These are memories I'll never forget.

      As far as work, after graduation I immediately started a job at a digital marketing company in Santa Monica, which has given me a creative space to learn and grow. Literally - I said I wanted to learn more coding and now we've started a "Lunch and Learn' where dev spends lunch teaching us non-devs how to code. Honestly, I'd say it's been a wild success and I wish I could go back and reassure myself that life after graduation isn't so scary.

      However, I struggled with some areas in my personal life. If I had to summarize 2014 up in a song, it would be "Shake It Off' by TSwift. When I graduated I was surrounded by some "friends' who were always trying to bring me down, found happiness in my failures, and refused to celebrate or acknowledge my successes. That's toxic shit and I didn't realize it until I started moving on and talking with them less and less. I've learned to shake it off and I'm much happier for it.

      Anyway, seeing the graduation pictures made me very nostalgic and contemplative and I thought I would share. This past year has been hills and valleys but I wouldn't take it back or change a thing. smiley1.gif

      If you had to summarize 2014 up in a song, what would you choose? smiley13.gif
