Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
Well. It’s officially been one whole year. *pats self on back*
I’ve been a Rhett and Link fan for just about 3 years now. I’ve loved watching all their videos and many times I’ve heard them talk about this ‘Rhett and Link Kommunity’. I never once thought of actually joining it. So, I went on without knowing what the Kommunity even was.
One year ago today, I finally joined the Komm. I can honestly remember that day very well. The reason I joined the Komm is all thanks to Jose and his mythical shoes. My friend Jose wore his black and gray mythical shoes one day, and without a doubt, I noticed them.
I whispered to Jacob: “Hey….Jose has mythical shoes!” His response was: “What?! I need to go talk to him.”
Jacob ran up to him and started going on about how much we love Rhett and Link. I had no idea Jose was a fan of R&L, so we had a fun conversation. He asked us if we were on the Kommunity, and we both replied, no. He told us a little about it, and persuaded us to join. That was the first thing we did when we got home that night. Thus, two new mythical beasts were recruited into the kommunity.
I was very skeptical at first. Not to mention, very confused as to how the Komm worked. Took a bit of getting used to, but I figured it out. One of my first friends I made was Aimee. Or should I say, The Aimee. Thanks for being so friendly and awesome, Aimee. (and also for the abundance of mini cheesecakes!) :D
My next step was to pick a mythical beast name. I contemplated this for hours (I can never decide on things). Finally, it came to me, and I found the perfect name: Swamp Chicken.
Now, I know this may cause you to raise your eyebrow, but there’s a (not-so-interesting) story behind this name.
I went to Disneyland over the summer in 2010, and we had a mass supply of walkie-talkies. My dad, being the kid that he is, decided we need to have code names for when we contacted each other. He thought for about 2 seconds, and said: “Swamp Chicken. Yep. That’s you, Jessica.” I couldn’t help but laugh and accept my new code name. So, I have my dad to thank for giving me my future mythical beast name—even though we didn’t know it at the time.
Fast forward one year, and here I am today. I am so grateful I joined. I only wish I had done so earlier. I’ve made great friends and have had a plentiful amount of laughs thanks to all of you guys (you know who you are). :)
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed my little story thing. I felt it was necessary to celebrate, and this was my way of doing so. Thanks again to everyone, you guys are awesome.
Adios, farwell, live long and prosper, and may the force be with you. *cheesy smile*
*Side note: I would’ve posted this much earlier, but I'm kinda doing something 24/7. That’s what I get for being so busy.
