Another weird blog!

Hey guys!

So it has been a long time since I did a personal blog. I have been very busy with life. I am going to try to keep up with my personal blog again. So first off ~ You should all go like my facebook fan page. Second ~ don’t forget to follow me on twitter. So I am going to let you guys know that first off, I work for Curse Gaming (www.curse.com). However, that is ONLY as a wiki manager. I have nothing to do with their competitive teams in E-Sports. The next thing I want to let you guys know is that I have decided I am going to reapply for the job at Riot Games. I will probably update my resume later tonight and send in my application for Community Manager, again. Lets just hope I get a faster response.

The next thing I want to say is a big thank you to everyone on twitter who has followed me up to this point. You guys are all very awesome. I try to take the time to get to know about those who follow me and there are just so many of you that its very hard for me to do the #FF on Friday’s because I want to give all of you a shout out. So to my 1000+ followers, thank you and I hope you continue to remain as awesome as you are now.

Now I am sure you are all wondering what I plan to write about in the future, so allow me to enlighten you! I want to start a little series where guys can ask me questions about females or even what females have to put up with in E-Sports. Heck, this might even just turn into an “Ask Tesla” sort of column. However, just a small disclaimer here – I am not responsible if you decide to take actions on the advice I give, I am not psychiatrist, nor am I counselor. The advise I give is nothing more than for fun and if you decide to use or take anything I say, you do so with full knowledge that it is of your own free will and that you release me of any possible repercussions.  With that being said – you may leave comments on this post as questions about whatever or even ask me on twitter. 🙂 Ja na! ~

Something Inspirational

Hey guys!

So as some of you know, I have been a bit down lately, however you have all been so wonderful. I have received many messages on facebook, twitter, skype and even on this blog site. So thank you everyone for your support. I figured I’d write something a bit more inspirational, just so you all know that I will be ok and that this is just like when you try to ride a bike. You might fall a few times, but you never give up! A saying I love to live my life by is:

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.” – Confucius

Songs that fit the way I feel sort of lately, since the news I received:

In fairy tales people talk about a phoenix being reborn out of its own ashes. In this case the ashes would be that of rejection and things that stand in your way. The Phoenix is a person’s feelings and their dreams. So today’s picture of the day, is going to be a phoenix! Why? The reason is because the Phoenix is passionate, strong, independent, beautiful, unique and never gives up. It is a sign of how even death can not stop it (at least in stories I have heard) ^_^

Thoughts 3

Hey guys!

It has been a while since I have written a new blog, so I figured I would do so today. As many of you know, I applied for the Community Manager position over at Riot back on May 18th. I have followed that up for the longest time. I did get a response from Riot Games about a week ago, which said the following:

“Thank you so much for your interest in the Community Assistant position at Riot Games.  We have reviewed your resume, and as the next step in our hiring process we would like you to complete a short online assessment measuring general problem solving skills.  This exercise takes approximately 20 minutes and we ask that you complete this within the next 48 hours.  Please follow the instructions below and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.”

So I went forth and did their assessment, however it was nothing like I expected. The questions were general questioned that you would be asked on a State Standardized test. It covered everything from: which number comes next, to conversions and things where they would give you a word and you had to pick the closest in definition or the opposite of it. So I treated this assessment as a state test – Which I NEVER once in my life failed a state quiz. Actually when I entered into high school my math state test scores where so good that I could have gone straight into Algebra 2, if I had wanted. However I had decided to take Geometry. Which was still better than where they had placed me in high school. Anyhow, back to topic..So I asked a friend at Riot how many questions they answered. Turns out they did a lot more than me. So I asked what was about average, he said about 80. At this point I got very nervous. First off, these questions were not based around the job I had applied for in the first place and then 80 was average for a 126 question assessment where you only had 20 minutes to do as many as possible? Now I know that they said “7. Your score is calculated based on the total number you get correct.  There is no penalty for guessing “, however I must sit here and wonder – Why should I guess? Isn’t it worth at least 30 seconds to think it over and do my best? I am almost positive that I did about a 90% accuracy rate on their assessment, however I only completed 48 questions.

So Thursday was about 1 week from when I had finished the assessment. I was starting to get very nervous and worried about my results to find this in my email as of yesterday:

“Hi Lori,

Thank you so much for your time and interest at Riot Games.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer you a position at this time.

The number of applicants in our pipeline right now far outweighs the positions available, and as such, we regret that even qualified candidates such as yourself must be cut early on in the evaluation process.

Again, we thank you for your time and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Warm regards”

Now I must admit that I did remove the name of the person who sent it to me, simply because that is not important…So I got this email last night and was just so upset. I actually finished cooking dinner and went to bed because I had started to cry. I have worked really hard on everything I have ever done in my life, even more so when it comes to something for the community and then I got that email. It makes me wonder, was there something I did not excel in? Was there a reason I didn’t even make it to telephone interview? I mean a silly assessment can only tell you so much about a person, don’t you guys agree? I feel that I should have at least had a phone interview, but nothing…

Anyhow, I just wanted to let people know since some of you saw my twitter status yesterday. I figured you guys at least deserved a full story and my blog deserved a new blog. So I didn’t get the job over at Riot Games, however I do not plan to change the activities I am doing. I am still going to continue working on giving back to the community. Well I am still pretty depressed about this, so I am going to post the picture that fits my mood for today and end the blog here. Thank you all for reading! Much love and never change guys!

(Edit: ~ After Thought: I know some people don’t like this artist, but today’s song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z5-P9v3F8w&ob=av2e <- Never gonna give up; Never going to say I can’t do it!)

Recent Blogs

Hey guys!
I wanted to thank everyone who comes to read my blogs. I apologize I have been unable to keep up with them as of lately. So lets see if I can give you a huge Summary of  ton of things:

May 30th, 2011 – July 30th, 20111
It has been 2 months since I started this blog and already I have had over 4,000 views! So thank you everyone for the constant visits. I want to apologize about the lack of posts I have had many things happen in my life, such as:

  • Many changes to the place I live with my family. We demolished an unlivable room that wasn’t actually part of the house. It made the backyard huge.
  • There was the gas line and sewage line that needed to be fixed/moved.
  • A brick wall was built
  • One of the cars got totaled
  • New furniture for inside the house (IE: Couches, bedroom sets, painting rooms, replacing old doors, etc..)
  • Went to upgrade my pc and ended up breaking the cpu chip. The guy at the pc shop ordered the right one, but additional expenses came up with the brick wall, so I have been unable to get the new cpu chip.
  • Also broke up with the guy I was dating – Its been almost 2 months now since he and I last spoke.

So as you guys can see, many things have happened in my life and made it so I did not have access to my pc or had other things I had to focus on. However in about a week or two, I should hopefully be able to finish fixing my pc. Though I am going out of state for about a week to a week and a half, so it could be slightly longer than that. On the bright side of things, my dads pc is up and running. It is what I have been using lately. Gamer Blog #4 & #5 are written and should be posted on: Team-Dignitas.net while I am gone though. So please enjoy them. Will try to post more later! Much love and thank you again everyone! ❤
