    • Super short life update!

      Today's as good a day as any for a small life update! Finished my last midterm of the quarter yesterday, week six of six straight weeks of having either a quiz or a midterm. School's been pretty rough this quarter, to say the least haha, so that's one reason why I haven't been posting much/checking notifications/doing anything around the site :( In other news...

      1051562-1448503651676-RTX_2016.PNGJust submitted my RTX 2016 Guardian Application! :D To say I'm excited would be an understatement. I really hope I will be accepted again. *fingers crossed* I look forward to seeing all your faces, and even meeting some new faces, in July!

    • Good bye my old (new) friend

      Hey hey what a surprise. It's been a month since my last journal lol. But besides my continued inability to post journals in a timely manner, I of course needed to post a final journal on the last site before it locks up. There will most definitely be things I forget so whenever I stop being lazy I'll definitely write a better journal on the new site with all the things I've wanted to share with you guys.

      I consider this site my old (new) friend since I've only been on here for 4 years (passed my 4 year anniversary a few weeks ago and totally missed it lol. It's also really more like 2 since I didn't start using the site very much), yet I have been around for longer and seen so much within these past years that it feels like longer. It isn't the first RT site I've used, but is the first one I've had a profile on. It's true that some of the features seemed lacking, but I still thought the site was pretty fun and useful. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and while I would like to say I will remember this site, I'm sure the new one will blow it out of the water once all the bugs are worked out. Can't wait to see you all on the other side! smiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

    • Milestones!

      Late journal again that's how I roll as of late I guess haha but these were my milestones the last time I updated last week on the 21st. I guess I shouldn't be surprised at how much I've posted since I've decided to start using the site more instead of being a lurker, yet it's also still hard to believe the number that signifies how much I've talked on this site. It goes without saying, but I love every single person I have ever talked to on this site. Thank you all for being open ears for topics I don't get to talk about much with anyone else. Also thank you all for tolerating me and actually continuing conversations with me smiley6.gif

    • How Behind Am I?

      I just finished my first Let's Play in a long time. It was The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II. Of course I could've checked the upload date on YouTube, but I like watching videos on the site more and was shocked when they were talking about E3 and how Sunset Overdrive looked awesome and how Gavin actually said he was excited for Master Chief Collection LOL. Boy how much simpler times were back then smiley6.gif

    • RT Community Day May 2015

      benjamingau RT NorCal

      Happy RT Community Day everyone! I know I've said I wanted to write a comprehensive journal, but I still haven't gotten around to it (I suck, I know smiley2.gif ) On the other hand, I hope this journal makes up for it because I have important news to share today!

      benjamingau5556645a8b818.jpg
      I have applied for three RT Internships! (Again, I suck, and because I took too long one position I wanted closed, but I submitted an application anyways just in case haha) As I wrote in my caption, I don't think I have ever been so stressed in my life! It also doesn't help that I submitted two applications before I realized a mistake I had made in my cover letters. I resubmitted the applications of course, and hopefully I did not screw up on something else the second time around. I also hope that whoever is reading the applications does not think I'm just trying to spam the submissions smiley6.gif

      benjamingau555664330e284.jpg
      This is the shirt I wore for today. I remember from @Jon's journal about the shirt that he wanted to replicate old California radio call signs. Hopefully it brings me some good luck and another California boy can make The Great Journey Yay for Halo references! Also ignoring the fact that it's a suicidal mission LOL to Austin over the summer smiley12.gif

      As a final note, today is the first official day I work at Chipotle! I've worked at a different location before for training, but today is the day I finally work at the location I was hired at lol. Quite an action packed RT Community Day, but it shouldn't be any other way!

        Sorry for such a late response smiley2.gif Yep yep! Especially around the community haha. It's always awesome to run into someone on the street who's into RT, but it doesn't happen too often so it's awesome to meet others here!

      I noticed you mentioned being a Niners fan in the college thread and decided to drop by here only to discover you and I are basically neighbors (in terms of the cities we live in).
