Earlier this year, I had attended the ETSU Cultural Festival, which was pretty spiffy. I ran out of phone space while recording, but I got the intro and this guy from Kenya doing a breakdance (which got cut off because I ran out of space). Either rate, I hope your appreciate my attempts to document this event.
Original Film Date, April 2013.
During my 2nd to last week of college at ETSU, I was in the print lab getting ready to hand in some stuff for Typography. It was semi-bittersweet; I wanted out of school because it felt like I was just being stuck there and not accomplishing a whole bunch, but I loved how it felt being late spring and having a bit of roam in the print lab. I happened to look out the window and saw how nice the yard looked outside, and decided to grab a shot. You can see a bit of me in the mirror in the lower right corner.
This was Ball Hall for those who was curious, 2nd floor I believe. I think this is looking north towards the big yard in front of Ball and Sam Wilson.
As I was heading back home from classes, I got this great sight of the stairwell and took a photo. It reminded me of the airport for some reason, and I thought it contrasted pretty well with the wall light and darkness on the side. Might make a good blog thumb, who knows?
When leaving a student counseling session one day, I wasn’t in too much of a hurry to get back to where I had parked, which should be the lot seen here. I then realized there was a pretty good view of the superstructure of the parking garage, and decided to get a shot for posterity.
That particular month for me was real stressful, so the sight plus the nice weather was welcome.
Was lounging around in my apartment one night, watching BBC on my TV via my laptop (yep, that’s how I entertain myself!). I often kept my die-cast Space Shuttle as an end-table decoration, especially since it was recently acquired in my trip to the space center in Florida.
Either rate, I had glanced over to grab a swig of ginger ale and saw this. Obviously I recognized that refraction was going on, but somehow I got it in my head that the shuttle was “drunk”, and found it hilarious before taking the picture.
As a reminder, I don’t drink. I’m someone who calls building lobbies “airlocks” and would spam Japanese emojis on forms to the local Tennessean population, much to my amusement. That’s just how my head works.
The byproduct of pulling almost-all-nighters with classwork? Eating cereal at 3PM in the afternoon when you wake up.
I always mix the copycat Captain Crunch Cereal with something else, usually like bran flakes or in this case, rice crispers. At least I’m not getting a whole bowl of sugar that way, and some more nutrition and bran is added to my diet.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this vehicle here. I don’t know who it belongs to or why someone from the Bristol Motor Speedway is at the Millenium center, but it was an interesting sight if anything else. Luckily for me I snapped a picture of it before heading home.
While I was heading out one day from DIGM classes, I noticed one of the computers had this typed into the DOS prompt. Looks like someone had a crack at a terminal joke while the computer was being wiped with Norton Ghost!
While I didn’t get to grab another photo of it, it stayed like that for another couple days. So the joke was around for a bit.
Well, from seeing all those shows on TV, I never thought I’d see this happen. I got stuck inside when the doors failed to open on the second floor. Then the emergency key wasn’t inside, and the emergency info led to the campus security.
So my sister and I were stuck there for about 30-40 minutes until they got it open. The fire department were the ones who ultimate had to force the doors open. At least we weren’t stuck halfway or something.
It’s only recently I’ve started to take pictures of the markerboards in the DIGM lab. I’ll definitely be doing more of these, as there’s a lot of interesting things to be seen here.
While I was gone for a few days, I had left a rough doodle of the Tomcatters squadron. When I came back, I was greeted by all this nonsense. Most of them are people complaining about render times, but there’s a Dalek and a few other things mixed in there. You’ll even see a Reddit upvote/downvote arrow there.
