In the geek/nerd/anime community, there’s a pun that goes around that “if you’re a virgin when you hit 30, you’ll become a wizard.” I fall into that category. However one night I was chatting with an ex-coworker, she mentioned that I was also a “tech wizard” in addition to that. I figured I’d embrace it it was going to happen regardless, and this happened. Now if my monitors would only stand up like that.
Today was an interesting snow day. My dad borrowed my Jeep to bring my sister home from work. Mom and I shared a can of cream of chicken mushroom soup. And Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak releases this afternoon. So yes, a real interesting snow day.
A not-so-normal egg and biscuits breakfast I had one morning. Biscuits are from Pillsbury, egg has half-poached/fried.
A light but fulfilling breakfast I had earlier today! Raspberry Pop-Tart, blueberries and cheddar cheese with a dinner roll. I know it’s not much to look at, but its a huge shift from the atypical Guyanese breakfast that is usually eaten.
Another good and quick breakfast one easygoing morning. Raspberry yogurt, cherry toaster strudel (Pillsbury), fresh blueberries and strawberries, along with coffee.
What happens when you take the N7 Eagle pistol from Mass Effect 3 and slap it into Iona’s hand? This. Something I drummed up while playing around in MMD one night.
From what I can tell, this is actually the official model used in the anime, ported for use in MMD. Interesting.
So with my newfound job, one of the things I’ve been doing in trying to stack up on all my favorite books I read while I was younger. These two books I loved to death, as they dealt with mysterious, unknown things. The Universe in a Nutshell helped me understand astronomical and cosmology concepts quite a bit, too. I’m glad to finally own these!
Finally getting an upgrade! Just swapped to this iPhone 5S today, so this’ll be interesting. This is actually the first time I’m buying my own phone, so it’s a first for me. Still sticking to that Otterbox goodness; kept me out of trouble the first time around, and hopefully it’ll do the same this time.
So yes, this is my last photo with my old phone. Signing off for now.
I find that nowadays I get home, I just want to veg out a little bit and do something else than either be in the house or napping. I do get tired, but until I hammer out a better schedule, I hop outside just as it starts to cool down just a little. And since this is the end of August, it’s thankfully not sweltering hot when out here.
So often I have a soda, taking my saucer chair and lounging on the back porch with my Iconia A100 tablet, browsing deviantART or Houzz (as you can see here). It is a little clunky but the Houzz app works beautifully, and it’s like browsing virtual housing without leaving your couch.
Time will tell when I finally start doing something in the evenings.
Well, the time for me to graduate ETSU is finally here. In another hour I’ll have a Bachelor’s in Digital Media! Sitting here in the hall is like waiting in a dropship to be deployed. A life-changing moment for me to say the least. Let’s see what’s in store for me in the future.
