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.
I was not getting a lot of hands-on experience cooking fish, but living on my own was putting preparing food more squarely on my shoulders. One afternoon I finally got an almost perfect mix of breaded, pan-fried tilapia. Flavored with paprika, pepper and salt, I absolutely loved this, considering the last time I attempted this as a disaster. As I’m moving out of my place next week after graduation day, this will probably be one of the last big meals I’m cooking here unless I can top this off with something else.
I was sleeping when I Dad woke me up, asking me if there was a gas station nearby. I check the GasBuddy app on my phone to be greeted by this. I had to screenshot this to show proof of this gas station; I’ve never heard of it before despite traveling here previously, and it was only because of that app that I now know of its existence.
The name itself gave me a good laugh. I’m not sure what El Cheapo sells, but they’re pretty low, considering the rest of the prices. But too bad, Sunoco has you beat.
**Technical note: the metadata on the screenshot shows 2:52AM, even though the actual screenshot says 3:52AM. This is because of Daylight’s Saving Time, and I’ll be sticking with the shown time for consistency.
This was a pretty spiffy meal, working out great for a cold December morning back when I was home at ETSU. Cream of mushroom soup, fried red kidney beans, coffee and toast. With the stuff I’m eating while at school, this was a welcome change.
I love my new tablet. It’s like I’m living a century in the future. I don’t need to carry my laptop everywhere.
But sometimes it gets bugs. And when it loses the Internet connection, strange things happen. As with here.
I would think with such temperature ranges, we’d all be dead by now. -_-;;
For years I imagined that digital billboards would be a thing of the future. I had NO idea that it would be this recent! While this was a welcome development, there were still bugs to iron out. I caught this one night with my family when we stopped somewhere. This Wendy’s menu in-restaurant was running on Windows 7 and needed to run and update. Typical Windows.
In Moscow, weather freezes you.
One day my cousin and I were walking together on the ETSU campus, and we ran across this…interesting setup of stickers. I wasn’t quite aware of who Demon Waffle was, but Medhavin definitely knew and had a big kick out of this. Honestly if it wasn’t for him laughing so much I wouldn’t have snapped this.
