      This is going to be different than my personal stories. This is just me trying to exercise my brain muscles. If they suck or have an opinion about the story, comment. Not all stories are going to be happy go lucky or sad. I encourage people to talk about the moral of the story without me being involved in that conversation. So this is me. Trying to write.


      Growing up Steven was a thoughtful child. He always did have the best intentions. His father, widowed by his wife from a terrible disease, left behind a wonderful husband and a son who has a heart of gold. All this happen when he was just a kid in elementary school. Steven's father didn't want to be at home at all for any reason since that day. In fact. He sold the house him and his wife built because it reminded him of the love he lost. His high school sweetheart. His sweet little hummingbird. After he had sold his home, he moved him and Steven to a small home fit for a young adult who just moved out from their parents house. Never mind the fact that they had a 2,500 square foot home with 10 acres of land.


      Overtime, Steven's father lived, breathed, and ate at his job. So over the years, Steven tried to apply himself at school to cope with the lack of a mother and a father. None of his teachers didn't believe he would make it to graduation because of how poorly he did. So they just passed him (barely) so that he wouldn't be that kid who was always left behind, giving teachers extra work to deal with this one kid.


      Than during the 2008 elections, his father lost his job and got an new job all due to the recession. Mind you, his father went from a whopping 80k to a lousy 22k. His car repoed and assets seized. Now life for Steven got harder. Anytime he would asked for stuff his father would always tell "Not this time" or "Maybe later". Even if it was out of necessity. But he could never get the things he wanted. Rent was getting hard to pay and food was getting scarce.


      So Steven took to the extreme. He told his father that he would get a job and buy things for the house. Well that was half true. Steven got a job but he was paid a pitiful amount. So he would give him all his money through a transfer and tell his father that he is saving up the rest for 'Necessities'. 


      It started off small like food and clothes. Than it moved onto wants like trading cards and stuff. Well eventually he gets caught. As amateurs do and is detained until his father bails him out. On the ride home his father chews him out about wasting his time and money. That it was a selfish tendency to let his desire get in the way. But with Steven he was finally getting things he wants but at the cost of stealing. So when he was asked if he had stolen anything else, he lied. He lied so that he can continue to provide.


      Well as the years went on the scores got bigger. So did the amount of bail it took to get him out of jail. One day Steven fell into a crowd of people with the same mindset. Steal to provide for your family. These guys were ready to commit a felony bank robbery. Not 1 but 3. During the 3rd robbery, one of the guys in that group was a undercover cop. The robbery went down in shambles. It ended in a shoot out. The cop died, two of the suspects died by suicide by cop, one was taken to the ICU ward, and Steven was unharmed. 


      Years pass and his father finally comes to visit him on his birthday 10 years later. As his father is waiting for Steven at the phone, his sour looking scowl quickly turned into a face full of tears. As Steven sat down, he greeted his father with a portrait of Humming birds all over his bare chest.


      Steven: Why are you crying?


      Father: Oh it's nothing. I'm glad to see you. I have to ask you. Why did you go down this route?

                                   [The tattoo reminded him of his wife and when he saw it, he knew to try to forgive him. It was as though his wife's voice echoed from his tattoo to forgive him]


      Steven: After mom died I was never able to experience or endure the love of a mother. After her death you withdrew from life by grief and neglected to embrace me as a father. Nor did you embrace me with the love or teachings of a father. You struggled so hard after you lost your job. So I thought I could help by getting the things we need. When I started stealing to fulfill my wants I would get caught. I stole so that I didn't have to feel burdened or feel horrible whenever I asked you for anything. So I stole to avoid that feeling. I'm sorry dad. I think forgiveness is out the window. But if you do, I'm ready to take it with much love.


      This is my first bit of writing. Thanks you guys for taking the time to read this. I hope to do more in the future.

      …..RTX WAS AMAZING

      Day 1

      My very first one as a Guardian too. I flew in on Wednesday and went straight to the convention center to pick up my badge. From there I met some new friends and went out to the RT Community picnic hosted by the wonderful @Giries. At the picnic I saw and conversed with my friends over from the Oxford Comma Café, RT World, and RT LGBT+ communities. The picnic was such a blast on every level and in my opinion, was The Best Event At RTX. Hands Down!

      Day 2

      Had a fun meeting about the community and afterwards I met up with my team leads, The amazing @plaidlaid and the famous @Count3D to get situated with my zone leader, Avalon and my teammates. But at that point my Exhibitors are trickling in and I'm helping them to set up their booths.


      Day 3

      Now I get to work my magic. Guardian duties. Everything went as smooth as possible and the day, from my perspective, went off without a hitch. So later that night I met up with the OCC for drinks and food. Where I proceeded to get drunk and sing a myriad of songs with my friends. But sadly I cut myself, off went to my hotel room, and caught me a nasty case of rebound insomnia. So I was forced to stay up all night.


      Day 4

      This day was the craziest day. I'm talking out the wha-zu. The foot traffic was insane. At the same time you're making sure your area is clear, you constantly have to check your phone for important messages from your fellow Guardians. At this point it's getting hard to stand. But for some reason I always find a second wind and I would be good for another 45 minutes to an hour. Also, the Houston Outlaws, Amirite? They had the craziest lines. Why? Because Overwatch and professional video gaming that's why.


      Day 5 (Pun intended)

      Everybody is really tired. The exhibitors have hangovers, the Guardians are physically sore, and the attendees are powering through their panels with anticipation. It was really slow but really busy at the same time. If that makes sense. At the end of the day, I had my first all hands meeting, took my first Guardian group picture, and reported back to the expo hall to have one last group meeting as a team. But my duties are not finished yet. Some of us stood behind to make sure that our exhibitors need help breaking down their booths. This was no easy task. The majority of the exhibitors broke down their booths fast. But Griffon needed the most help. It was easy to do it, but she had a lot of stuff to put away, and things to break down. From there I shot over to the final meet up over at Buffalo Billiards to get my ass handed to me by my friend @Ratatoskr (who is a noob but still beat me because I fucked myself over). I run into my Team lead @plaidlaid and he laid down some words of encouragement on me. It meant a lot to me hearing those words come from him. I'll keep that close to my heart. Especially on my first year.


      Day 6

      Fly home, buy an Xbox card, and go to bed.


      All in all this was the best RTX that I've been apart of and I was so happy to give my time to this convention and company. I will gladly do it again, over and over, until I die. This is an amazing company with the best community/family I've had the honor of being apart of. Thank Rooster Teeth for all you've done.


      Thank you! caboose

      Hey y’all!


      I’ve been really inspired to keep writing. It’s surprisingly easy. I’ve been putting a lot of thought and time into my story writing. I don’t want to spoil HOW I am doing it. But I’m busting out ideas left and right. 


      So..... to give a little insight, I’ve been working on this story since 2016. That’s when I busted out 33 characters in the span of 2-4 days. It’s imperative, in my opinion, that there HAS TO BE ELEMENTS OF YOUR LIFE IN YOUR STORIES FOR IT TO FEEL RELATABLE AND INTERESTING! 

      Every single person in my story has an element of my Life. I feel like it’s really hard to share my Life story in a conversation. I want to use this avenue to help express myself. I don’t think my current state of being is good enough to be open with my friends. 


      Don’t get me wrong. I’m a very open guy. You can ask me any question and I’ll answer 100% honestly. Even with my best friends, I don’t think they know me that well. So I think I’m going have fun explaining who I am through a story. 


      I think this is really fun. Now mind you, there are huge gaps of nothingness in these past couple years. But when I’m working on it I keep in mind what my father say; “Don’t market your ideas prematurely and you when you work on something, make sure it’s of quality.” 

      Well that’s all I have in mind at the moment. Take care everybody. 


      P.S. 

      I wouldn’t know how to present this once I’m ready to tell it.

      How goes life?

      Answered: Jul 3, 2018

      So busy in fact that I stepped down from being admin in RTMD and passed it onto a more active member. But other than that, work, getting ready for college, and preparing for RTX.

    • Heyo.....

      What's up everybody.


      So as of recent or earlier this year I was accepted to be a Guardian by the lovely Sailortweek and was placed under the command of Count3D and plaidlaid. I'm not going to tag them in this post because I know they are all busy. I'm happy that I got placed in the Expo hall. It's a lot of fun and it's also a reminder of the cool experience and privileged from when I worked the Imagine Dragons concert this past November. Though the numbers are a lot less daunting this time.


      I'm going to do what I can to come prepared and expecting. This means snacks, first aid supplies, water, electrolyte packets, etc. Oh right I forgot and gel inserts for my shoes. God knows how tired my feet get at RTX. I will also say that this year I will be getting my first tattoo on my hand. But before anybody says anything, yes I know it will hurt, and yes I know I have to keep it clean as well as lotioned up. On the bright side I find pain to be funny is a lot of ways. Maybe it's a masochistic thing or maybe it isn't. I don't know. But the point is is that this convention means a lot to me and it will make that tattoo that more meaningful to me.


      Well, that's all of the things I can think of at the moment.


      Oh and I'm finally back in platinum in Overwatch.

    • A Education Better Than College?.....

      2 months ago

      Izayer

      I've been thinking about it and ooooffff. I'm really thinking about school and it's cost. I will be going to college in August and I'll be taking classes and transitional classes because I fall into the "Too smart for the easiest of classes but dumb enough to not be able to take regular classes". If you think about it, a college career will run you 30-$40,000. Even if you have student aid, like a pell grant, it will only last for so long and allot you so much just to pay for classes. So I've been thinking. There is a educational course(s) that I believe that can teach you the material better than a conventional classroom.


      So I have been contemplating the idea of taking Master Classes after my first year of IRL classes. I want to conduct an experiment through my college career and compare both online classes and IRL classes. Even after I transfer to a university I wonder if the approach to a subject will be different and I also would like to know the difference in how engaging the teaching is. Obviously I will be learning redundant things. But my question is that: Can classes taught by professionals and celebrities be more beneficial than a classroom setting? I don't think you get a degree after taking the online courses. If that's the case and you want a degree, just go to school or go to a different online course.


      If you guys have any thoughts or comments let me know. I really would love to know thoughts about this subject.

      Hey everybody. How ya goin?


      Well it's been a hot minute since I posted on the site. I really admit it. I can't use the social part of the site on mobile. Don't know why but frankly I don't care anymore. I'm getting ready to start college in August  for the summer semester. I've been working at a local family restaurant and because I've been doing that, I'll be able to buy my first camera drone!


      I hope that this is the first step on a long journey in filmmaking. I've got a long way to go but I'm so happy about this! Now, after I get my drone, I'll see if I can get some awesome ariel shots from my local area. Granted Westminster has some beautiful scenery but I might do some hard juxstapositioning because of the nature of the city.


      Next on my list, I'm looking for another place to live. I want to keep family close. Which, on paper, sounds like a good idea. It's actually hard to find a decent place for a good price here in Maryland. Everything here is expensive. Especially property. I would like to get a studio apartment for myself but I need to think about other family members who are in the same position as I am. 


      Now let's talk about inspiration for a bit. I'm not the type of guy who is easily inspired. I've tried watching testimonies, vision boards, deep conversations with my parents, etc. It wasn't until I started watching Casey Neistat and Peter McKinnon that I really feel inspired just to get up and do some good in the world. More so for myself but I'm learning from their videos that you can do things for yourself but in the process, it can benefit for others as well. I think. IDK. But they really make me want to do more, push aside the excuses, and get my dreams or projects done. 


      I'll touch base on this some more later. Just wanted to update you guys on what I have in mind about some things. I'll see you guys later.

      SO it's been a while guys and gals! Sorry for being so quiet online. I have been busy-ish with things and only spent my time on Xbox. I finally got into college and am able to start in August.

      During my placement testing, I scored really high for someone who hasn't been in school for over 5 years.


      I've been trying to stream and it's been going okay. I've been testing it out and it's really hard. I've mostly be on Overwatch and a little bit of PUBG. I'll be streaming on Twitch for 5-7 hours! My username is izayer_. I've been working hard in OW, especially on leveling up and grinding out this event (which is bullshit but ok).



      Now about the site!

      What the fuck. I don't know what it is, but the site is still ass! I'm on mobile all the time and it will not take me to the video portion of the sit. I'm missing all of this content just because it isn't convenient. All it does is show me the entirety of the "community" side of things. I literally have to get on PC (which is not easy for me) and watch it. For me I'm always on the go, so it's easy for me to type in RT in the browser and watch it there. I also quickly go to the community and chat it up there, minus the past month, I was very active. 


      Disclaimer : My opinion

      The RT community is dying hard. But I love it so. Me personally, I won't leave for any reason though. But the inability to use both. It's as though I actually have to download the app just to view content, on a device that's already full. I don't care that I am missing it but at the same I really do. But if you follow @Priest he really nails it on the head about the subject and I can't agree even more. Rooster Teeth needs to go back to it's roots and be more hands with the fans. Not through First sign ups. Like I said before the state groups are fine and mostly healthy, but they still need help. Maybe we'll see something happen or not. But the community update, in my opinion, should have been released at the same time. Or maybe that may cause problems. Maybe,but I don't know.




      In other news:


      New guitar. Cheap and shit, but still blessed to have one. Overwatch has been taking over my life and I've been staying up late just playing. I'm always looking for capable people to 6 stack and rank up in Comp. I'm also getting ready to move out of my current place. Due to an asshole roommate. Uhhhhhhhh real bored too. Don't know what to do with my time.


      how is everyone?

    Yes it has been forever. I keep forgetting that you changed your handle. I would want a Liger. Just like the one Napoleon Dynamite wanted. 

    I don't have any pets. But my ideal pets would be a German Shepard, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, and a pit bull. 

    It's cool and all but I don't get hung up about it. It's a fun little milestone that I come across..... a few times a week.
