    • My time in Ireland

      6 months ago

      AgentValkyrie Lich Queen

      So, some folks asked me to post an update about my recent trip to Ireland.

      Let me start out by saying, it was absolutely amazing. The food, the scenery, everything was fantastic. I went for my sister's wedding and it turned into one of the best trips I have ever taken. I didn't get to see the entire country, but I did get to see a number of iconic sites such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. Anyone wondering about visiting the country, I highly recommend it. I can't wait to go back. It provided a well needed respite from everything. 

      Other more somber news.

      Some folks have been tracking since the beginning that I was applying for various jobs and trying to finally break into my dream. Honestly, I haven't heard back from a single one. It's disheartening, but I think I knew this all from the get go. I'm going to keep trying at new and different places though. I know that even if I get 999 "No's" I just need 1 "Yes" but it's always frightening to think about how long that could possibly take. 

      I also want to apologize. In some recent posts I have had folks debating with me academically to an extent and I try to keep it cordial but sometimes I don't think that intent translates well into text. Couple that with some depression creeping up as I start to approach the 1 year anniversary of my father dying and honestly I don't feel 100% like myself. I don't want to seem needy or like I am constantly trying to get attention, but sometimes I just need someone to talk to.

      I want to think my dad would be proud of me, but I don't think he would. I haven't amounted to anything in my life in 26 years and I guess I feel desperate.

    • Thinking about writing

      8 months ago

      AgentValkyrie Lich Queen

      So over the years I have been coming up with the idea for a story, or at the very least a collection of short stories. 

      It's the type of thing I would like as a consumer, but really don't see on the market. So I am considering writing it, partially just so I can finally have something  in print, but also to see if anyone likes it! It's space era science fiction to give a little background, ship battles, wars, etc. My biggest hang up until now is dialogue. Not the words and conversations themselves, but the formatting. Writing people speaking just looks weird to me, so I never got far into my previous attempts. I think it might be time to suck it up and try again on that front. 

      My friend's list isn't the largest, but if any of you lovelies would be interested, please feel free to drop a comment here!

    • Who am I?

      8 months ago

      AgentValkyrie Lich Queen

      At the heart of it all, I am a learner, an academic in a sense, but I feel I am too blasé to the parts of academia that drive most people to do things like write papers. 

      As a child I was passionate about learning. I wanted to read, to write, to expand my horizons. Over the years as I was going through the processes of learning and trying to better myself I think I crossed a threshold wherein I became disillusioned with the scholarly learning that we are taught and cultivated into in school. Hence, I became blasé about it; there was too much of it. However, during this grind, this tiring monotony, I came upon dreams: I wanted to play games for my own enjoyment, I wanted to make games, I wanted to make content on my own, etc. 

      That is where our current story begins. When I was younger, still wide eyed and eager to gain knowledge for the sake of knowledge, I saw my dreams and decided they were not worth pursuing. I talked myself out of what I wanted. Told myself I was not good enough, and so I stayed the course and rode my ship onward into education. But as the years have passed I have realized something. Despite having numbers of degrees and specializations in Geology, Archaeology, Chemistry, etc. they were not making me happy in a sense of longevity. The appeal has worn off, and I am left here reaping the consequences of my actions. And no, I do not regret it in the sense that I am sitting here at the end thinking it was wasted time. I am grateful for the experiences I have gained, but it is time for me to pursue my dreams again. 

      Mahatma Gandhi is cited for a quote I find relevant. "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."

      This is an incredibly important piece of advise if ever I saw one because it tells us two things. First, we need to live for ourselves. Do what you need to in order to live a full life, so if you died tomorrow it would not be a life in regret. Second, learning is a life long process. To learn as if we had eternal life is to realize you must learn all the time. It is vital to keep learning.

      So where does that leave me? I still like learning, albeit not in an academic setting. So I have decided to follow Gandhi's advise and do both. By living for myself it is time I embrace the dreams I gave up on, but to use those dreams to learn. This is why I am going to make content and learn programming. It is why I am applying for jobs in fields I once told myself were out of my reach. I will use the stability of my academics to teach myself something new, to live a full life. And I am fortunate that what I want to do is something where we truly never stop learning. I look forward to this path. Even if I fail, I would rather stand up and try and risk being pushed down, than to simple give up without a fight. 

      "I'd rather die on my feet, than live on my knees."- Emiliano Zapata

      My sister is a doctor, as in an actual hospital doctor of medicine. During medical school she had to be with multiple patients at the end of their lives and what she told was that, invariably, their deepest regrets were that they did not follow a dream or do something the wanted/loved. I hope I can live a full enough life to not have that regret.

      So to answer the question: who am I?

      I am a learner, I am a dreamer, but most importantly, I am the one who controls my own destiny. 

    • Destiny 2

      in Forums > Destiny 2 | Follow this topic

      Hey everybody!

      So, I wanted to go ahead and start up a conversation about Destiny 2 here in the forums to get some community going. Now, I've been watching and looking and haven't really seen much discussion on it. Most of the Destiny groups are all but dead. The single Destiny 2 group has one person in it, and few folks have even mentioned the name in the general forums. 

      So with this in mind, let's talk and get ready to play. How many of you are out there and want to possibly join up? With Destiny 2 coming to three platforms, it's a wonderful opportunity to get some of the Rooster Teeth Community hanging out with each other. I for one am playing on Xbox One and PC. I played Destiny 1 on PS4 and am one of the like two people leaving PS4 for Xbox; I have my reasons. 

      One thing I was considering was starting yet another group, for Destiny 2, and making sure we keep some life in it. It could be cross platform to pull everyone one in, and we can go from there with intra-group forums. I am 100% fine with making and managing the group, but before I do I want to gauge interest: how many folks do we have here who would be interested in joining and trying to rekindle..or even kindle in the first place...some Destiny action here in the RT Community? 

      The community has been close with old Bungie and Halo because of Red vs. Blue; many of us still support Halo still with 343 Industries. Let's bring back some love for Bungie the studio and play the crap out of Destiny. Who's with me?

        I’m alright! The site is cool, though browsing through forums and users kinda feels like coming to a once-great city that has now been abandoned
