Welcome to the first edition of the 1st Corps Monthly Newsletter! This newsletter provides a way for you to know what is going on in your corps, milestones people have hit, upcoming events, and more! If there is anything that you'd like to see in the next edition, please let me know!
Hello everyone! For those of you that do not know me, I'm TG HSquared. I have been in TG for just under 6 years! I originally joined TG to find a group of people that I felt comfortable being on comms with. When I would play in public lobbies by myself, I'd often find some interesting characters that I wasn't a fan of. I met some of the TG members and realized that not all gamers are creepy! So, I decided to join TG so I could have more fun in games (especially Halo at that time) instead of playing solo.
Halo was the first game that I played that I wanted a community for. Before Halo I played Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Mario Party, and those types of games. Don't get me wrong- I still play those, but finding a community definitely opened me up to many different types of games. I now mostly play Overwatch and Halo, but I am working on learning Ghost Recon and Call of Duty! I also play many of the free games that come out on Xbox Game Pass and some of the "scary" games like Phasmophobia! I also really enjoy watching streams, mostly from our members; I've been watching a lot of Escape from Tarkov, Hell Let Loose, and Resident Evil Village.
During my time in TG, I was in the Halo Division for just under a year- it definitely felt a lot longer than that! I made a lot of really great friends there, some of which I have even met in real life now! After Halo, I moved to the Overwatch Division. There I spent nearly five years... I helped them get through trial phase, recruit, restructure squads, build fun gaming nights, met some amazing friends, and had a ton of fun! I also was PRA for roughly 5 months before becoming CC. In the PRA, I helped grow the teams, encouraged and created more events, and helped in any way that I could! Now as CC, I am hoping to bring my knowledge and experiences to the staff and members to help strengthen the culture that we have here in TG. I want to see more involvement from people, because they want to be involved! We have some fun events that are in the planning phases, recruitment contests, and much more! I plan on being involved and coming to practices, so if I show up at your practice, don't think you did anything wrong; I just want to get to know our members better and learn what we can do to make TG even better. I already love the environment here in TG, but I am a firm believer that there is always room for improvement!
For the record, my life isn't only about gaming/TG (sometimes I wish it was though)! I am a wife, caregiver, Executive Assistant, huge Houston Astros fan (baseball), and a full-time pet mom! I have two dogs Cortana and Goliath, and a cat Death Bringer (RIP to my guardian kitty Master Chief)! My pets take up a lot of my time and bring me a ton of joy! If you are ever on voice with me, you will probably hear my dogs or me saying something to them! So, if you hear me say "Cortana, no lick", I am not instructing my Xbox to not lick! I love to travel; it doesn't matter if its a road trip, flying somewhere, cruise ships (maybe one day this will happen again) or just going camping here in Florida- I just love to get away sometimes. I find it very rejuvenating and needed! I believe that taking time for self- care is critical and travelling is the easiest way for me to do so!
Don't worry though, my travels won't take me completely off the grid for very long. I am here for y'all and want to help in anyway that I can, just come knock on my Discord Door (TG HSquared (CC)#5037) or send a PM here on the site, and I will be more than happy to see what we can do! I love meeting with people and brainstorming, so if you have any ideas- don't be shy! TG wouldn't be what it is today without all of us!
