About Rhea

Who is Rhea?

Rhea (pronounced RAY-uh) is my four-year-old German Shepherd and partner-in-crime. She pokes her head into the stream to say hello and demand pets at least once every stream.

What's the story of how you got Rhea?

I adopted Rhea on December 21, 2013, from a shelter when she was about 1.5 years old. It was "love at first sight"- I knew she was my dog. She was extremely thin and had been rescued by that shelter from a different shelter, where she was on the short list for, well, euthanasia. Under their "care", she had lost ten pounds in two weeks. As soon as I got her home, she started showing some signs of sickness which worsened quickly. She was completely stuffed up and was having trouble breathing which meant she could barely sleep because she couldn't put her head down. Christmas Eve, I was terrified she wouldn't make it through the night though my mom and I did what we could to make her comfortable.

Christmas morning, my mom and I took Rhea to the emergency animal hospital. (Sidenote: Bless people who work on holidays and keep places open for emergencies. Rhea would not be alive today if they weren't working on Christmas.) She was diagnosed with pneumonia and had to stay in the hospital for four days on IV fluids and antibiotics. She came home and has been healthy ever since.

Do you have any tips for getting started with streaming?

To be frank, there is nothing I can tell you that you probably haven't already heard. There's no secret formula for success and I'm still learning every day. But I wrote up a short post on how I got started and here are some other resources that can help you get started.

What games do you play?

I'm a variety streamer, so you can expect to find me playing just about anything on any given day. I'll usually play big new releases and have a few fallback games but I like to switch things up regularly just to keep myself mentally engaged.
