    • My heart is so heavy

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      If you pray, or have a different means of keeping people in your thoughts, can you pray for my family as heaven gains another star?


      My aunt has now joined my cousin and two uncles.


      Since last Christmas, we have suffered great loss but my family remains strong. 


      My heart is so heavy but I am glad that my aunt is at peace now. Without going into too much detail, she had been battling cancer for quite a few years. She married into the family, marrying my mother's brother. They had been married for close to 50 years now, so she has been in my life for ALL of my life. She was a master cook, let me tell you, she could make amazing pho. It didn't matter who you were or where you came from, if we invited you into our home especially for the holidays, she welcomed you and she would feed you a crapton of food she made. Whenever I saw her, she called me honey and she would pat my face like I was a youngster. She was one of the most affectionate people in our family. 


      I saw her last month when I went back home to celebrate my mom's birthday. She wanted me to come back home for the holidays. I am so sad that I won't see her when I got back in a few months. But the main takeaway is that she's at peace, she was surrounded by family, including my mom, dad, and brother. It breaks my heart that I was not able to say goodbye to her. I never felt more alone, but I am hoping that I can make it back home for her memorial service. I write this with such a broken heart, but I am glad that she isn't in any more pain or discomfort. 


      We lost one of the truly great ones. Keep your loved ones close & those who moved on in your hearts.

    • Farewell to one hell of an RTX Guardian

      1 month ago

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      We were informed very recently of Aaron Benek's passing, and to say we are all heartbroken is an understatement. His passing was unexpected, and he is survived by his wife and children. His wife is actually expecting in September. They set up a gofundme, so if you can please help by either donating or passing the page along, thank you. 


      Aaron founded the Response Guardian team back in 2013 with Alex. Back then, it was called Security. It was always a pleasure working with him. Whenever I walked by, he made it a point to ask me if I was doing all right and if I needed anything. Whenever we had down time, we were swap silly RTX stories and laugh till we couldn't breathe. Seriously. The dude had stupid crazy stories. They were all awesome. The last time I saw him was a couple years ago when I was in town for Austin Let's Play Live. We were bitching about how loud 6th street was and that we were getting old. 


      I honestly don't know how to process my feelings because even though Aaron retired Guardianship a couple years ago, he was still part of the family. Even though we didn't talk a lot, he was still there. And now he's not. And that breaks my heart. There's no easy or right way to mourn. I wish all Guardians could have known him. And I hope that those who do will find solace and peace soon. 


      Farewell, Aaron.

    • Sarahah! I may regret this

      Sarahah is an anonymous messaging app that allows people to message you constructive/positive messages under the veil of anonymity. Now, if you've spent more than ten minutes on the internet, you know that this can go sideways immediately. However, I would like to make it easier for people who may want to ask me questions or say things to me but were afraid to do so for whatever reason. If it becomes overwhelming or there isn't any traction, then I will delete the account. But seeing that I've never done this before, I'm curious to see how using this platform works out. 


      As I've hit 1000 followers on Twitch, I decided to do an IRL stream to celebrate, so I would like to take questions from GeekyFriedRice.Sarahah.com and answer them on the stream. I won't be answering anything inappropriate (if there are any of those types of questions), but I am hoping that people are genuine in their responses and messages. 


      So let's see how this goes! If you would like to ask me something, feel free to use the link above. 

    • To My Guardians

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      I honestly had no idea how I was to start this journal, but I figure you guys could organize my scrambled mess and make sense of it. There are many things that I want to say and write, but for the sake of remaining neutral positive, I'm going to be very selective with my words. 


      RTX has wrapped, and this year was very difficult for a lot of us. I'm sure a great number of you have or will share your experiences in hopes of ensuring that next year will be better, and I fully encourage that you speak up. I ask that of my team, and now I ask that of the community. For some of you, this will be the best year ever, and that's fantastic. Others may see room for improvement, so I want you to say something. RTX is a forever changing event, and every year will be different, so we have to adapt and change with it so that we can grow together. 


      As volunteers of such a large event, it's easy for a lot of us to be forgotten in the mix. I know some of you will have a knee jerk reaction to that statement like "it's easy for you because you're a PA" but let me tell you a little bit of my day to day during RTX. 


      I am all over the place during the show. I'm not out on the floor all too often, and I stay behind the scenes, keeping an eye on my phone, listening to the walkie, checking in on my teammates, jumping in when unique requests pour in from out of nowhere. I helped console upset attendees and Guardians, but I also helped make their day. If someone asks "do you have a few minutes to talk?" I NEVER say no. If someone asks "can you help me?" I NEVER say no. Being a team lead, in my eyes, means that you take the brunt of a lot of the crazy and stress and you process accordingly. No matter what the situation, you deal with it. Whether you have to talk to another teammate, Head Guardian, staff, special guest, attendee, ACC staff, whoever, you do it. In my mind, I have 72 hours to help run a show smoothly, and the more I can handle in short spans of time, the more efficiently my team will run. If I don't do my job, they can't do theirs. That said, throughout these crazy hours, I've come to understand a little bit about every Guardian team. I don't have a full understanding, mind you, but I see a little bit of what every one of you do. 


      I see you, Guardian, keeping your post to make sure attendees know where to go. 

      I see you, Guardian, ensuring that vendor has everything they need. 

      I see you, Guardian, dealing with an extremely belligerent attendee. 

      I see you, Guardian, dropping everything you're doing to make sure your teammate is okay. 

      I see you, Guardian, doing what you can to make sure that attendee has all the proper info.

      I see you, Guardian, highfiving that attendee because you want them to enjoy the show.

      I see you, Guardian, watching over our belongings and keeping our safe place, well, safe. 

      I see you, Guardian, on a mission to reunite a parent with their lost child. 

      I see you, Guardian, taking a moment to yourself when things become too much of a burden.

      I see you, Guardian, keeping your cool and patience when things don't go according to plan.

      I see you, Guardian, encouraging your fellow Guardians when they had a rough of couple hours.

      I see you, Guardian, hyping the crowd to build that positive energy.

      I see you, Guardian, keeping the large crowds in order. 

      I see you, Guardian, wearing that badge proudly. 


      I don't have a lot of time to myself when Day 1 kicks off. But I see these things, and I beam with pride. I wish I could tell every single one of you who has crossed my path, thank you for doing your job and for running this show. I wish I could spend an extra five seconds with all of you to hug you or high five you. I wish I could express my gratitude because so many of you, I know, don't always get personal thanks. And I know for a fucking fact that if it were humanly possible, Mary, Chris, and Dan would shake every single one of your hands. I hope there isn't a moment that passes where you don't believe that you are not appreciated. You are. I see it every year. And I hope you bring that home with you post-RTX. 


      To my Guardians, thank you for being the heart of this show. 


    • New Mattress Who Dis + Subscriber Button!

      2 months ago

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      It's been a while since I've posted on here! I try to keep up with everything going on in my life, but it's been so overwhelming the last few months. Here's the basic recap: 


      After being completely wrecked by my last apartment, I gathered enough evidence to demand that they release me from my lease. It was granted. Basically, they were ignoring my literal pleas for help. I had everything in written form, I had pictures of me being eaten alive by SOMETHING, and I had receipts from a visit to the medical center, and pictures of other issues that they blatantly ignore and I finally was free from them just a couple weeks ago. I had 39 pages of evidence against them. KEEP. YOUR. RECEIPTS. 


      I moved to a new place! It's so much nicer. However, I wasn't anticipating this move at all, so I didn't have the budget for it, but I would rather go into debt than continually suffer and fear going to my own home every day. The new place is pretty cool and I can actually show off bits of my personality here and there. It feels like a real home. The pups are getting acclimated to it, so I'm happy about that too. I got a new mattress and I finally got to sleep in it yesterday! I've been sleeping on my couch for two weeks because I decided to get rid of my old out of sheer paranoia. I didn't have bed bugs, but the mattress was old and if I was going to toss it, it should be now. It's another expense I didn't anticipate, but again, I'm in a healthier position now. 


      I feel very fortunate that while my credit card is crying right now, I do anticipate being able to pay all this off by the end of the year. Hopefully. I'm not entirely sure... but at the very least, I can provide for myself and the pups. That's my main concern. 


      Going through all of this and only being in Austin for 7 months has really put me in a downward spiral, but it's fleeting. I'm not sad, I'm just tired. I feel exhausted all the time, and I feel like I can't get a routine down. I've had evenings where I have done nothing. Literally just sitting on the couch and trying not to break down. Again, I'm not sad, just really, freaking tired. 


      But I'm in a better home, I have a really good job (I was converted from contractor to full time!), and I'm still exploring the city when I can. 


      On a positive note, the GFRGuild is doing well too. Recently, I reached Affiliate status on Twitch, and yesterday I got a sub button! Even crazier... people actually subbed to me. That blows my mind. In celebration of obtaining the sub button, I did an IRL stream of me unboxing my new mattress. That shit took two hours. I am DED. It's quite pitiful, but y'all know I have no physical strength whatsoever. 


      I know quite a few of you have asked how you could support the channel and the brand, and while I am hesitant in "pimping myself out", I am happy to say that there are several ways to do so and if one way doesn't work for you, you have options! 


      **You can follow/subscribe to the GeekyFriedRice Twitch channel. Or if you prefer just to watch ads and cheer in the chat whenever I am live, you can do that too! And remember if you have Amazon Prime, you can link that to you Twitch account and you will get a free subscription to whatever channel you want every 30 days. 


      **The Patreon page is still going strong! It really warms my heart when people message me that they had to lower or delete their pledge for adulting reasons and they are upset they can't do much more. Guys, I am just ecstatic that I had your support at this level at all! You are all very hard working people, so for you to even consider pledging to my page on any level is something I will always be thankful for. Seriously, thank you. 


      Should you decide to pledge via Patreon, just remember that you pledge per YT video that I create and you set a cap for how videos you want to support. If I make three videos, and you only want to support two of them at $1 each, then you can do that. I also started making mini-vlogs that are just for Patrons as a special thank you. 


      **You can be a part of the GFR Guild and just hang out with me and other guildies. I'm starting to understand how Discord works finally! You can join here. Y'all know how community oriented I am. So whenever I see you guys interacting and engaging with each other, it makes me feel so happy.  I'm just stoked that so many different people from all walks of life have a place to go, chill, and hang out for a bit. 


      That's pretty much it right now. I'm stressing myself over RTX prep, but the weekend should be fun and full of good memories. I'm very happy that I will get to see you guys soon! I will be sure to update the journal sooner than later. 


      Tell me what's been going on with your lives. I miss talking to you guys. 


      Less than three y'all!

    • Achievement Unlocked: Adulting

      4 months ago

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      I wanted to share some awesome news with you all, and in order for this news to have some level of significant impact, I feel I should start from the beginning.


      It was no secret that in the last few years I was not happy with where I was in life. I never thought that my hometown felt like home, I wasn’t happy with my career, and I felt utterly trapped and alone. I did what I could to get out, but there were a few opportunities that slipped through my fingers and I felt even sadder with each that flew by.


      I was in a very toxic environment at the time, completely unhappy and I was even breaking down often. Luckily, I had several pillars of support in my life, some were happy that I was trying to move on with my life and others who were upset that I wanted to leave them behind  but still encouraged me to follow my dreams. They were the best. Now, I had no idea where I was meant to be, only that I would have the biggest regret if I stayed.


      I made several attempts to make it to Austin. It was a city that I had visited several times over the last 5 years, and it felt like a healthier and more positive atmosphere overall. I figured… why not try to make that my new home? And try I did. I can’t go into details, but there were more than a handful of times where I received messages or calls indicating that I didn’t have enough experience or other qualifications. I never tried to get my hopes up during interview processes, but at the same time, there was always some level of expectation of success because you did your best to kick ass. But that success never came. There were even a couple of times where I felt like I was slapped in the face because I thought passion, experience, and loyalty would help me achieve my goals. No such luck. I was told my long term ambitions weren’t good enough. It took me a while to get back on my feet after that.


      But I continued networking and making connections. I continued to learn all I could from my peers and role models. And even though it was hard to wake up in the mornings at times, I just kept hoping onto the belief that one day, things will work out for me.


      Because of my desire to leave home, and having a couple of carrots dangled in front of me, I took a risk and didn’t renew the lease on my apartment. Not gonna lie. That was one of the most brutal things I’ve ever done to myself. Didn’t renew for a few months, opportunities slipped away, then dove into a 6 month lease, then didn’t renew again because I had a couple more things sent my way. It was a weird feeling because I was both being hopeful and making myself even sadder at the same time. If you’ve never leased month to month, it essentially adds 30% of your base rent on top of your well… base rent. And when you renew a lease for 12 -16 months, that is usually the cheapest base rent to owe, however, every year you stay in a complex, they raise the rent at least 10% every year. And if you don’t immediately renew like I did, you don’t get that 10% hike, you get lumped into the “industry average” and that went even higher. Like I said, it was pretty brutal.

      I was pretty miserable at this point. Even my parents began to notice a change in my behavior. I was even contemplating talking to a professional at one point. First question I would have asked was “am I wasting my life for something that will never happen?” and the worst part is, I was pretty sure they couldn’t answer that.


      After what seemed like half my life that had gone by, I found something I qualified for! And it was in Austin! I also knew someone who could give me a great referral, so I went for it. And holy crap, they contacted me back. Four phone interviews and one test later, I was on my way to meet people in person. Only, I couldn’t, I found later. I won’t go into details, but there was absolutely no bad blood whatsoever. We kept in touch and I even become friends with the people who were trying to recruit me. It was a positive experience and I wished with all my heart that our paths would cross again. Five months later. I got that glorious message.


      Literally, a few weeks before I received this message, I already made the decision to go to Austin and not look back. I told my apartment complex that I was moving, and I was talking to temp agencies in Austin. I was so depressed and sad, I just decided to make the leap because I couldn’t stay in my hometown anymore as I was. Then that message came, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. I said yes, agreeing to a contract, and there was such a weight that was lifted from me, I momentarily forgot that I was packing up my life and leaving everything I knew behind me.


      Three amazing friends drove with me and the moving truck to Austin in November (shoutout to Mary, Bret, and Chey), and they were kind enough to even unpack all of my things in my new apartment. I started work a week later, and I couldn’t believe how NICE everyone was. My team was and is still awesome and the best people I could ever hope to work with, my department is full of talented and wonderful people, and the company culture itself made me feel so welcome like I was a real person and not just a body or a number.  I was in disbelief for the first couple months.


      Then a couple more months went by, and I wondered what would become of me. The reality is, I was under contract, so there was no guarantee that I would stay on board. I started losing a teeny tiny bit of sleep due to the anxiety and fear of having to start this process all over again. I was afraid of losing the best job I ever had in my life. I was afraid of losing my team because they were more than my peers, they were my friends. My contract was due to end in May. I was sweating bullets toward mid-April. I could do the job, and I did it well. I always gave them my best, and I always made sure to take care of my team and any others I worked with. I hope that they would keep me. But in the back of my mind, I felt the career teachings of my hometown, that dreams were meant to be crushed.


      I got another message. I went through four more interviews. And then I received my official offer letter.


      I was driving home that day, and ended up at a stoplight. I cried so hard. And I laughed so loud.


      I couldn’t tell you how scared I was for the majority of 2016. I was downright terrified at times, and I was calm and collected during others. That is, until reality set in and I thought “OMG. I’m making a mistake.” But I went with it. I went with my gut, and I went with 85% of my parents’ blessing (Mama Fried Rice was pretty heartbroken), and I followed my dreams. Somehow, it worked out.

      So now I will always be an advocate of if you feel that your life is pulling you in a direction, you owe it to yourself to at least see what’s there. Will it actually pay off in the end? It might, it might not. There’s no promise that it will. But I always felt I would regret it if I didn’t at least try.


      So May 1st was my official first day as (in my eyes) a full fledged adult.


      Guys, it was so worth taking that risk.

    • Bad things come in threes

      6 months ago

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      Lucille's father passed away last night. 


      I'm okay. I really am. 


      I haven't seen him for many years, so I'm not close to him at all. I do feel incredibly sad for Lucille's surviving brother and sister. I can't imagine losing my brother and my dad within months of each other. I was able to talk to someone last night for a couple hours when we got the initial text that he wasn't doing well.  While the conversation started on a sad note, I was able to laugh and smile by the end of it. 


      We received confirmation this morning that he had passed away sometime during the night. It's a really weird thing to process. I've said and written that time and time again, but I have never had to deal with this part of life like this so quickly. Three family deaths within three months. It's crazy. But Lucille isn't alone now, so that makes me happy. 


      My mom and dad are visiting later this month (at least that's the plan), so it'll be good to see them as I left home back in November and haven't seen them since. 


      I feel strange for having to ask this yet again, but please keep my cousins in your thoughts. 


      Thanks, guys. I love you <3

    • Life Update!

      6 months ago

      kriss PA Lead Guardian

      It's been a while since I posted on here, and I apologize for that. There's been a lot that's happened in the last couple of months. I'm amazed by how much has changed in that short amount of time. 


      I moved to Austin in November. 

      I spent my first holiday season away from family. Like. EVER. 

      My cousin passed away right before Christmas

      I got to spend New Years among friends (which is a rare occurrence for me)

      My uncle had a heart attack

      I found that some friends aren't really friends. Not a bad thing. Just a good revelation.

      For weeks, I felt completely alone and isolated. 

      I was kidnapped to PAX South by a bestie

      I rekindled a lot of friendships

      My dad text me that he was proud of me

      My mom text me saying I needed to text her every 2 days so she knows I'm alive

      I found a level of happiness I never thought I could reach

      I'm now prepping for my family to visit so they can see my new home


      My uncle passed away about a week and a half ago. My mom went to the memorial service to represent our side of the family. It hit me today how much time I've let pass me by because I lost motivation to do a lot of things. I'm pretty sure I watched almost every stand up comedy special on Netflix because I needed to smile and laugh. If that mental stimulation wasn't there, I was always sad. I sat on my couch a lot, mostly numb and bewildered. 


      Admittedly, when all this was happening to my family, I had many irrational thoughts. I was worried about my family, and I was worried about them worrying for me. I thought I was being punished for moving away. And I thought I somehow deserved all of this because I was breaking up my family. Again. I know it was irrational. Luckily, I was able to open up to people very close to my heart, so I wasn't completely alone through this transition. 


      My Patreon and Twitch streams suffered the last couple months. Although, I gave whatever I made in December's Patreon funds to my family for Lucille's funeral and hospital costs. January and February were almost nonexistent. I lost my motivation and my drive to create content. I was just so... gone. But I'm snapping myself out of it, and I'm going to start up again. It's been in the back of my mind to get my butt in gear, and now I finally feel like stepping up again. I was just knocked down for a few moments. 


      There has been a huge shift in my life lately, and it's brought me so much happiness. I actually don't know what to do with it, but I'm just going to let everything happen naturally and cherish every moment. I have the best people in my life, I truly do. I know that no matter what happens in my life, you guys will always have my back. That is such a fantastic feeling to have, and I am so grateful for all of you. Y'all are my heart. 


      So thank you. And I love you. <3 


      It may be slow coming, but I am back.

        It was great! I had done at least one "history of video games" paper in high school so I knew a lot of the names so it was cool to actually see the people behind the names. It had the effect of making me want to replay all the games I knew of and saw in the movie. So good!

      So I've been meaning to drop by and leave this comment for a while, but have only just gotten around to it for some reason - forgive me for that! - but I saw your Dragon Age video on YouTube and wanted to tell you that you're INCREDIBLY talented, and that I hope storytelling is something you continue to pursue for a long time. smiley1.gif I was really impressed with your final product and it looked like you had a lot of fun as well, which is what absolutely counts the most. From one cosplayer/RT community member/RTX attendee (maybe see you there?) to another, you really inspire me, and I hope to one day create things of the magnitude you have. smiley13.gif

        Ahhhhh, thank you so much for the kind words! I cannot take credit for the cosplay though because my friends are the leatherwork gurus behind. They are helping me with a Leliana cosplay, so yay chainmail! They're teaching me how to use that stuff, so I'm looking forward to getting my hand dirty.

        I do enjoy writing and creating stories. I really do appreciate the compliment smiley12.gif It was a blast to make that video and collab with all those talented people.

        I'm a Guardian again this year, so I will definitely see you at RTX! smiley13.gif

    What's your favorite color?

    | Asked by: KumaPichu 1 year ago

    TEAM PURPLE ALL THE WAY.

    My heater broke, I think. My apartment feels like Hoth and Sidewinder made a baby.


    It's really. Fucking. Cold.

    Loud and clear! I honestly don't know =O I'm not sure what that particular industry is like in this city. But this city is HORRIBLE. STAY AWAY. JUST VISIT.


    Speaking of, visit soon! =D

    Hmmm. I think it's really important to understand and practice empathy. It's very easy to get caught up in your own world, on your own projects and deadlines, so it's extremely important to understand that the people you work with are going through just as much on their side. Just because you don't see people every day and you're not in constant communication with them, it doesn't mean that they aren't doing their job. I do what I can to ensure that my coworkers know how much I appreciate them.

    Dare I ask, PC or Mac?

    Both! I primarily use a MacBook Pro, but I do also have a PC set up in my home as well.
