While I was on the fallout from all the friends I had, I had become strong in myself during the summer. That goes in varying degrees, but I took this photo one day while coming in after having gone for a run, snapping the photo. With me regarding Orion as a fighter/starship, I felt like a pilot pretty much. And the confidence showed; everyone both on dA and Facebook said I looked cool and collected. I wish the people I knew had the same thing to say; but hey, they’re not there, right?
Well, it’s official. I have a job again, but this time thankfully it’s something a lot different than dealing with annoying customers at a retail store. I’m now a physics lab assistant! I have a ton of work to do in the labs and help the physics professor out, but tasks include maintaining science equipment, taking care of the observatory among other things. It’s a ton of work, and first thing was getting the workstation actually working and online! So a shot of accomplishment at the end of the day’s work after that.
As much as I wanted to go sightseeing when I went to Florida, this was not to be. However, the family decided to swing by this little NASA Hall of Fame center before the actual space center, which did have a few cool exhibits and a couple of interesting rides. At least I got a T-shirt and hat combo out of it.
I was told not to take the camera in, so I apologize for the flip phone quality.
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.
