      As some of you know, I officially finished the last class of my undergraduate degree today. So in celebration of this occasion, here's one last cheesy poem for the road.

      College Completed

      Alright guys I’m done,
      For real though this time!
      Break out the tequila,
      The salt, and the limes!

      I’m relieved of my duties,
      A long sought after wish.
      So farewell to my teachers,
      And thanks for all the fish!

      A new path is open.
      No idea where it leads.
      But a thousand step journey,
      Starts with one to proceed.

      I’m trying to escape
      My illusions and vices,
      But it sucks I can’t cram,
      For an existential crisis.

      Now where should I go?
      Just what should I do?
      These questions still plague me,
      And it’s hard to break through.

      I don’t have an answer,
      And that fact terrifies.
      But I’m thankful to have
      All my friends and allies.

      I hope by accepting
      Life’s frightening unknown,
      That I can move forward,
      Not become the next drone.

      So here’s to the future,
      And to those lost along the way,
      Thanks for your guidance,
      I’ll try not to fall astray.

      To quote a great writer,
      One I can’t help adoring,
      “It’s a magical world, Hobbes ol’ buddy…
      Let’s go exploring!”

    • Resume

      1 year ago

      Bryan

      I’m finally getting around to updating my resume for the oncoming job hunt, and I’ve got to say that this is hands down one of the most frustratingly difficult things to write. Despite all that, I think I have an idea to reinvigorate the application process.

      Coming this Fall

      Bryan Christensen is,
      THE APPLICANT

      In a world where workers are lazy and unmotivated, one man stands to lead them into the light. Possessing an extensive background in media production, leadership, volunteer work, and critical analysis writing, this Maverick of the Wild West is on a mission to acquire a mythological treasure: A Career in [insert company’s field of work]. With nothing but his wits, his will, and his college degree, this man has chosen to stand and fight for what he believes in: Truth, Justice, and Fair Compensation.

      Come interview the worker that EVERYONE is talking about. His way with words is more inspiring than the President’s speech from Independence Day. He’s able to leap tall hurdles in 2 tries or less. He possesses gypsy hips capable of obliterating concrete. He’s great with puppies and children alike. He’s brave in the face of spiders and insects, and one time punched a bee through a window.

      You won’t want to miss out on this once-in-a-generation resume. It’s the most anticipated piece of writing since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Book your interview today! But don’t wait too long, because a reliable and charismatic worker like this won’t be a free agent forever.

    • College Graduation

      Happy Graduation Class of 2015!

      That's it, I'm done,
      My hands are now clean.
      No more homework, assignments,
      or essays for me!

      The hilltop was conquered
      The view is fantastic.
      Relief from persisting
      On assignments scholastic.

      The extra year doesn't bother me,
      I was mostly on track.
      More time is allowed,
      Since 5 is the new black.

      I take it all in,
      One more walk down from class,
      OSH and Union,
      Now lie in my past.

      I could travel the globe,
      and work for cheap beer.
      find a place that needs help
      then go volunteer.

      Where should I start?
      Perhaps a professional debut?
      (You still have Spanish in July)
      Wait, I have MORE SCHOOL TO DO?!?

      So recently I've been playing Dark Souls again and started a Soul Level 1 character to beat the game with. A few days ago I succeeded and have conquered every boss at the lowest level. Take that Lordran!

      PS: Kalameet is a steaming pile of dragon dung and I made steaks out of his body. They were delicious.

    • I'll get an A out of you

      2 years ago

      Bryan

      It's been quite a long while since my last post, and being in a poetic mood and procrastinating school work, here's a parody song I wrote during last finals week.

      "Let's get down to business,
      to achieve good grades.
      Did you send me failures,
      when I asked for A's.
      This is the worst essay
      I've ever read.
      But you can bet,
      before we're through.
      Mister I'll, get an A,
      out of you.

      Study swift for the course in Econ,
      To get a job like a great tycoon,
      Don't burn your books in a raging fire,
      Hide from the sun like the dark side of the moon.
      "I'm never gonna pass this class"
      "Say good bye to those who knew me"
      "Boy was I fool in school for cutting Chem"

      "This professor has him scared to death"
      "Hope he doesn't see me cheating"
      "Now I really wish that I learned how to cram!"

      GET THAT A
      Study swift for that course in Econ
      GET THAT A
      To get a job like a great tycoon
      GET THAT A
      Don't burn your books in a raging fire
      Hide from the sun like the dark side of the moon.

      Time is racing towards us,
      'til finals arrive.
      Study all your subjects,
      and you might survive
      You're a spineless pale,
      pathetic lot.
      And you haven't got a clue.
      Mister I'll, get and A,
      out of you."

      You're unsuited for the highest scores
      so pack up, go home, you're through.
      How could I
      get an A
      out of you?!

    • I got myself a radio show

      3 years ago

      Bryan

      Through a combination of shady dealings and blood sacrifice, I managed to acquire a slot on my college radio station. My show, Songs for Second Breakfast, streams online from 10:30-2 MT every Wednesday on K-Ute radio. Music and ramblings are prevalent, but who doesn't like hearing people make fools of themselves over the air?

  • About Me

    I've loved RvB and Rooster Teeth since I saw a promo for Season 2 online back in the Limewire days. I don't typically accept random friend requests, but I do prefer to be friendly with everyone on the forum. I like history and storytelling, as well as doing podcasts and song parodies. Be nice and write as grammatically correct as you can on the forum, and people will most likely be nice to you. Learn to accept constructive criticism though. We're big believers in keeping up the standard for literacy.

      Geneva convention never said anything about Bayonets. It's one of those myths like it outlawed .50 BMG. There's no point in outlawing something that just turns a rifle into an expensive pointy stick.

        As am I. A friend got me into it a few weeks ago, and now I'm hooked. Just finished Season 2 of The Last Airbender.

        Huge fan. Saw a couple episodes of the original run, but didn't get obsessed until a few years ago. Loved watching Korra, and can't wait for season 2.

        Yeah, they took it down. Sorry.

        I think they removed it. The Canyon day one is just the keynote.

        The Canyon day one. I assumed it would take you there automatically.

        Of course not! But with the timezone change, summer semester starting today, and starting a new job yesterday, I haven't been able to really get into it. Don't worry, I'm still playing.

      Hi there! You're new to Mafia, aren't you? Quick question for you regarding the Mafia game you signed up to... just to help me optimise the role distribution on Sunday.
      Can you tell me which of these roles you've played in the past (if any) and which of them you'd like to try in this round? Obviously, there are many other roles... these are the major ones with recurring powers. You can pick as many or as few as you like smiley1.gif

      Cop
      Bodyguard/Doctor
      AI
      Psycho
      Vigilante

      • Jalnor FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Teal Ranger

        4 years ago

        The AI is a bit of a complex one, in that it's hard to explain but easy to understand once you see it from the right angle.
        He starts off as a normal civilian - investigations will reveal him as a civilian. He wins with the civilians.
        But he is essentially a robot pretending to be human.
        If he's killed in any way, in a last-ditch attempt to stay alive, he'll abandon his robot body and transmit himself into another player's body. Then he has to move to a new body at least once a week or he fades out of existence. From then on, he wins by being alive at the end of the game. He can choose to help fight the Mafia (perhaps by deliberately taking over his suspect) or simply become an unpredictable element in the game.

      • Bryan Mad Historian

        4 years ago

        This is indeed my first game of Mafia. I read up on the roles, and I'd probably like to be a Bodyguard, Vigliante, or Psycho. Since this is my first game, I'd like to take a non-vital role so I can get a feel for how things are done. So no Cop or AI, since I still don't fully understand how the AI role works.

      Bryan, I think you will be a great parent for Chell.
      All the adoption papers are ready, and now you just have to inform Myshu of your adoption of her.
      Take good care of her and give her lots of cake
      (;

      • Bryan Mad Historian

        4 years ago

        Ah well that's a bummer, but it would be unfair. I will not be greedy. I wish Chell and her future owner good luck!

      • A5expected

        4 years ago

        oh dear..... With the adoption of another Chupa , your now unable to adopt Chell. The rule was only one could be adopted at a time. I'm sorry, but it would be unfair to others. Atleast if there happens to be another draw one and get one free time you might be able to adopt her. Otherwise, we have to abide by the rules.

        A lot of people on RT are like that.

        I was very surprised that he asked permission first. That's not something I see on the internet very often. Besides, I made it so that everyone could see it. It would be selfish if I said no.
