2008

While I was waiting for some evaluation results at the Walters State general office, I got to work with playing with some kid’s blocks they had sitting around. This was the final result; a rough version of the Vigilance from my to-be 2008 NaNoWriMo entry. Apparently the lady at the desk was somewhat impressed with it as well.

I’ll give getting to to around to places like Animazement some credence; it helped me just a bit become more outgoing and feel like I had something in common with somebody. So what does that have to do with a room shot?

 

Because I redecorated the room to what it is. I bought certain furniture, used paint leftover from my parent’s store to give it a facelift, and even bought some recessed lights to go into the ceiling. The result was this fairly attractive room, that had some styling to feng shuei and a tad splash of new age.

 

I had cleaned up my room pretty good as I was starting school again, and I decided to show you guys what it looks like before it got messy again.

 

And yes, while that view may be physically lovely (which it is sometimes, I admit), the lack of communication and connection with the outside world makes it one of the most depressing and soul-crushing vistas at the same time. You can’t communicate or reach out to people here, and it isn’t a place for a “non-local” college student needing friends, a girlfriend and a place to sink roots to start his life. Just my two cents.

When I was going into West Town Mall tonight, I snapped this picture because the trash can puzzled me. Not so much that it was packed full to the brim, but how the people who did add trash anyway positioned their cups. I haven’t seen anything like it, considering how much nonsense I have to put up with people living here since I started going to college in 2005. So yes, this photo was warranted, to show that rare instance where East Tennessean residents actually had some care for their surroundings.

It’s been a few months since I’ve had my system, but a proper profile photo was in order. My new system, the Millenium Project Alpha. 1GB of RAM, 2.0Ghz Intel Duo Core, 160GB hard drive with a 128MB graphics card and Windows Vista.

 

The system carries on the Millenium project’s aspirations in name only. It is a very new system on the edge of the next generation of system hardware, and isn’t cross-compatible with any of my older hardware. However, it still is special as it is my first, brand-new desktop that’s all my own.

 

That said, it’s my go to system for everything I need to do. It’s not a shabby game machine either. It’s certainly a lot better than the computers at Walters State!

When I went out with the Morristown BCM group today, I made this Dumpshake mascot for Sean, who’s Halo handle is his namesake. So when he was busy chatting it up with his other BCM buddies, I took his cup, drew this face then used my cup to make the head and antenna.

 

At the time he approved. That was enough for me, as nobody except two kids in that group actually cared for my humor or art.
