2005

As far as I know, this was the first time I actually started taking pictures of my food. It wasn’t something I did very often then, but more as a historical kind of documenting moment. I don’t have a lot of photos showing what I did in my teen years, so anything that exists is almost a big peek into my past; even if it’s an insignificant thing as what I ate.

 

Here, we have fried chicken, mac and cheese and a cup of water. Usually paid about $2 for all of this, and bought it during my 15-minute break. The only time I wouldn’t buy this is if the deli was closed, which was after 5PM. In that case I’d revert back to candy or something else.

This was my favorite building out of the entire WSCC campus besides the library. It always had a science feel to it. It also didn’t quite help that this is where I was taking my astronomy classes either. In fact, this photo was taken before I went into the lecture hall, trying to snack on Cheetos and wondering if I’d go eat at Ryans or Golden Dragon that night.

I took me a bit to get this up here, but a guy I knew out of Astronomy class snapped this with his camera, back when we were building our traffic cone for the Walters State drunk driving event. Traditional film, black and white. About a week afterwards he gave me a print, which I did drag my feet to post.

 

Either way, he thought it was funny that the res of us had our phones out taking photos.

 

Never got taken out in that kind of medium, I will admit!

So some peeps and I from Astronomy class were putting together our decorated traffic cone for the drunk driving awareness event a few days from now. I snapped this at Sarah’s apartment before we got ready to take him back to the student affairs office.

 

I’m sure I have an HD picture of him somewhere; I’ll try to get it up if I find it.

This was taken at the Drunk Driving Awareness event we were running at Walters State earlier today. You could count this as a sort of “press release” photo if you’d like, showing off the members of the Astronomy Club that was there to participate in the event. Sadly I had to leave to work shortly thereafter, so I wasn’t around for very long.

 

From left to right: Me, another member of the Astronomy Club I don’t remember, Sarah Manuel and Stephanie Whiteley.

I ran into this dude at the Morristown Mall, while my Mom was taking me clothes shopping for my first semester at Walters State. Typically these things have blank faces or they’re extruded without paint, but this literally looked it was scribbled on with markers. My sister just made up her face when I showed it to her.

Just at the beginning of summer I did this for my sister; she wanted artwork of a character in a story she was writing, known as Scarlet Fury. So I drummed this up one afternoon.

 

I wasn’t too happy with how the feet came out, but I love the details I put into the background. She liked that about the piece as well, apparently.

 

Maybe one of these days I’ll actually get this colored. I don’t usually do full scenes.

Act 26

Gate of Karnak, Habados System, Kalkuth Sector

Movers swam through the cloud of dark debris. Not long before the dark debris was two of the most powerful ships of the Galaxy, the Tartarus and the Sajuuk. Now, the Movers sift through the debris with their scanners, looking for useful material they could still salvage, pieces of technology that they would not want to share with undeserving races.

But besides those, there was something else they were looking for. One Mover signaled its discovery to the rest of its squadron. Not long after, another Mover found the other one. Both were capsules, made from a metal forged in the cores of dead stars, with a dark colored sheen that was reflected the sun and the stars about them. The Movers hoped that the two capsules would have survived the disintegration of the dreadnaught and the mothership. And inside the capsules lay something ancient, something that harks back to the beginnings of their race.

Act 25

Aboard the Pride of Hiigara

The repairs were quick and the Hiigaran mothership have graduated from critical to serious status, although the great Mothership remained under constant attack. It was a testimony to the unceasing efforts of the ship’s inboard crew and the Collectors to save the Mothership from the brink of destruction. It has been a while since Karan was on the Pride of Hiigara, but the familiarity stored in her memories and nerve synapses quickly switched in, and it felt like no day has passed since time they battled Makaan for control of the Sajuuk.

Act 24

Aboard the Pride of Hiigara

A last minute short jump saved the Hiigaran mothership from further damage. Karan wondered about the ships they had to leave behind, which had gathered around the Sajuuk to protect it. Something distracted the P3 attack on the Sajuuk, which allowed the dreadnaught to survive. Yes, she could still sense the presence of Sajuuk. Karan had inquired the status of the Kun-Laan 2 through direct communications from her own newly added links to the Pride of Hiigara. She was relieved that the Somtaaw mining ship was safe. But the Kun-Laan 2 had lost almost all her escorts in sacrifice, and her captain was wounded. The ship was heavily damaged, with several critical modules destroyed. There was no word on her Kun-Laan 2’s strike craft, consisting mainly of the improvised Super Acolytes. But their numbers have dwindled, and the survivors have gone on to protect the straggling Sajuuk along with the Hiigaran regular strike craft. With the Kun-Laan 2 incapacitated, the Somtaaw squadrons would have to dock on Hiigaran carriers for repairs.
