    DiMono It's Back Baby!

    @john is a good friend of mine. I don't see him as often as I used to, because money stuff, but really, that's just a detail.


    Well, right now my friend John and his family are going through a tough time. He's been a fixture in this community for many years, and if you've ever gone to RTX then you've probably seen him around, taking pictures. He has given a lot to Rooster Teeth and our community. I think it's a good time to give back, and to help him. The details are all in @Cheshire_Cat's journal here, and there's a nifty image below for it too. I'll be there watching, and I'll be donating. Won't you come too?

    The thing I love most about this community is how close knit it is. Initially a place where all ages, backgrounds, and personalities have come together around a common interest, this community has grown to become a place where we genuinely care and support one another. And now one of our community members could use some of that support. 

    Most of you probably know @john (RocketJohn) from the site - either from one of the many community events or from the halls of RTX. He is always there if you need him, offering a helping hand, a place to crash, and a friendly face; but right now he and his family are hurting.


    After their father spent two weeks in the hospital battling stage 4 colon cancer they received some shocking and terrible news. There is nothing more they can do. Their father, Jeffrey, would be sent home into hospice care where he would spend the remainder of his limited days. The family has been working hard in the time they have left to make one of Jeffrey's fondest wishes come true. He shared a dance with each of his daughters in wedding finery, made some fond memories and said some goodbyes, but the family is still dealing with hospital bills and medical costs in the remaining days. 


    We would like to help alleviate some of the financial stress from John and his family as they go through this troubling time, but we need your help to do it.


    This Sunday, February 26th, at 1 pm Central we are going to be hosting a Charity D&D game called "Heroes of the Heart". We will be streaming live on Glib Shark's Twitch channel until approximately 8 pm and encourage you all to tune in and contribute if you can.

    Any donation is welcome and appreciated and can be deposited on the GoFundMe page they have established here: https://www.gofundme.com/daddydaughtersdance 


    But wait, there's more!

    If you would like to donate and participate in the game, we have several options for you:

    1. Donations of $5 will grant The Blessing of the Gods, which allows a player of your choice to roll with advantage. Blessings can be purchased in bundles ($5, $10, $15, etc) and you can specify how many blessings you would like to buy and for whom. 

    2. $13 invokes a Smite of the Gods, which grants our all-mighty GM, @OboeCrazy advantage on her rolls! Smites can also be purchased in multiple increments, but who would want to smite us? We're adorable!

     

    Once you donate, please comment on this journal to let us know what you would like and for whom! You can even mix and match $10 for 2 blessings and $13 for one smite equals one $23 donation. Or, you can donate any amount above $5 and choose only one item, or none, and still receive our eternal gratitude.

     

    The Cast and Crew of Heroes of the Heart are: @RoadBlock @Jengaship @Juls @Optimizer @GoobertheGr8 @Izzi @Toku @Vicki @Cheshire_Cat and our amazing DM is @OboeCrazy

     

    Please spread the word and join us this Sunday for an epic, one-off adventure.

    No vocals, it's just a backing song. 

    I like to think of it as cruise control in space.

  • Rejected, But Feeling Good About It?

    20 hours ago

    LadyOddDuck Call Me Duck

    Sounds weird, I know, but I got the nicest rejection ever yesterday. Seriously, the only way it could have been nicer is if it were accompanied by cookies. Basically, I applied to a position at a company that, while not in my eventual career path, was certainly a step to getting there. Yesterday, the HR manager called (how rare is that?!) letting me know that they closed the position. They also reaffirmed, as they did before when I passed the first step of the interview process, that my submission materials were great and a joy to read, particularly my cover letter. The HR manager used a very warm tone and genuinely encouraged me to apply again when they re-open it in a few months.


    Aside from the niceness of their rejection, this also demonstrated a few things. 1. I'm dialing in on an exceptional cover letter. Cover letters are one of the worst things to write, but I think I really nailed it with this one. 2. I have the goods that make people want to hire me, I just have to get better at putting myself out there. 3. Sometimes it really isn't you, it's them. I honestly believe that had they not closed the position entirely, I would have been in there for an in-person interview. Sometimes circumstances beyond anyone's control just turn out sucky.


    Combined with this affirming rejection, I'm also attending events and taking advantage of opportunities to help out community groups here in Austin. I've been banging my head against a wall trying to offer my volunteer services, and now it seems like I'm getting somewhere. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, but I think I'll be hearing back about some cool projects really soon. Through these projects, I hope to meet a lot of new people in the field I want to be in.


    So, all things considered, life is moving forward. I'm still unemployed, but I feel like I'm homing in on where I want to be in life. It's really hard not to get caught up in pressures from life and society that tell you to give up and settle for some place you don't want to be. If you feel like you're stuck and you're not getting anywhere, change something! Try a new cover letter format. Volunteer for something. And don't forget to look for those silver linings! Small steps and silver linings - that's what's going to get us where we want in the end.


    <3 Duck


    P.S. The niceness of their rejection makes me reeeeeeeally really want to work there now. The way HR handles prospective employees is the first glimpse you'll get into the company's work culture so pay attention to it! Based on how nice the HR person was, I'm going to assume the whole company must be pretty darn nice/fun to work with.

  • The Move

    1 day ago

    MrFusion Podcast Overlord

    Greetings, programs!


    It's been a while since my last journal.  It's actually been a lot longer since I posted about my potential move back to Austin.  Aside from social media and the OCC, I really haven't kept folks updated.


    Joann and I planned to move sometime after April 15, which is the tax deadline.  That meant I could work at my current firm and not put stress on them to up and leave during a busy time of the year.  Then in December I decided to create a window of time before that in case the right opportunity came about.  I said between Mid-February and April 17th would be a dead period in terms of a job search.


    Well, as fate would have it, an opportunity came about in early February.  It's an IT/middleware software consulting firm.  We had a great few rounds interviews and then two weeks ago, they offered me a job.   This was the biggest hurdle for us because 1.  I love my current job  2.  My wife was able to transfer to the Austin hospital whenever she wanted.


    It was hard submitting my resignation last Monday.  It was a little emotional.  When I joined this firm in 2014, I was a physical and emotional mess.  They were very accommodating and very supportive then, so it should be no shock they've been supportive of this move.  Friday will be my last day.  We are going out for a long lunch and drinks, so it's not really a "work" day.  It will be bittersweet.  I am moving to the city I always felt was my home, yet leaving a very good situation here.


    I start my new job on Monday, then Joann moves up here the following week.  To say the next 2-3 weeks are going to be pure chaos is a bit of an  understatement.  But some of you guys have been wonderful in offering your help, and I appreciate it greatly.


    The good news for me is I don't have to rent a hotel for RTX 2017!


    Also, I know some of you listen to our sports podcast, Cap Casualties.  Just a heads up, the next couple of weeks' scheduling will be wonky, but hopefully we'll be back on track by April, just in time for NFL draft and MLB opening day chatter.


    So, in two days a new chapter of my adulting begins, let's see how it goes.

    Hello dears! I hope you're doing well! Please excuse me while I spam the site with my thoughts once again.


    When the site changed from what we were used to to the new site, the majority were heartbroken. The new layout has uhh... changed quite a few features that made this site accessible and active. Finding groups, forums, chatrooms and just finding new friends has become a lot tougher and as a result many have moved over to Facebook or other social media platforms.


    But no! I refuse! This is our home! There are literally, millions of us here. We are all here for the same reasons, a love of the Rooster Teeth family. We, as active members of the community have to make the extra effort.


    Keep commenting, modding, participating in groups, forums and chat rooms. Reach out to others. It's so vitally important to do this to keep our beloved community alive. There are hundreds of really amazing active groups here, seek them out! If you're part of one, link it here!


    I try and do my best to reach out to community members, drop a comment or a message here and there when I can. I understand that many of us lead busy lives, but as members of this community, we have to go that little bit further than just lurking to make a difference. Some days I don't feel like I have anything interesting to say, but I try and read all of my friends' journals and mod them up as a subtle nod that I'm there.


    I also like to try and reach out to new community folks too, with the spam accounts it takes a little longer than it used to, but it's worth the effort! I would hate to think that there was anyone in the community who feels alone or not listened to.


    Does any of this make sense? I hope so. What I'm trying to say is, it's quiet here, but I'm so glad the people who choose to remain are keeping the community alive. And if you can, please, reach out to another community member. Say hi! And tell them I say hi too!


    Ok, I'm done :) thanks for reading folks. I'll be here as usual, reading your stories and running my groups and being the fashion lady.  barbara
