The first thing that came to mind were the Red Flag stories of “going downtown”, where the populace was SAMs and other aerial threats. That’s exactly what came to mind when I saw this going into New York; this was the first time seeing the big city on a GPS, so it was very enlightening to say the least. If anything, it made me more excited.
This time and day was the first time I had gotten my first ever domain, janeilharricharan.com. I had used some of my school money and had my brother help me set it up. I never had my own website before; I so bad wanted to blog and share all my art on it.
While this was a small step, it was a big one for me. I remember even going out and buying a double mushroom and cheese pizza from Pizza Hut to celebrate the occasion. No free hosting, no nobody telling me what to post on it, no running out of hosting space. I was thrilled.

I can’t believe I’m the only one in the family that sees these things, and decides to take a picture of them. But here you go. When we visited a meeting to get Internet in rural places outside of Atlanta, I found this in the tree next to the entrance door. Dad scolded me for taking the photo, but I knew that was the 2nd highlight of my trip to catch that nonsense. Someone noticed!
I got one of these fancy things as a Christmas gift. Extremely interesting; it’s almost like portable tech that I’ve envisioned in so many Star Trek novels. Wi-fi, the app, even getting to play games. This is the most amazing thing ever. This’ll be my companion device for quite awhile.
When my aunt was here a little while back, she got me this spiffy MP3 player. Never had one before, so it was an interesting experience to say the least. At least it’s a lot easier to drown out the people at school around me. It’s also a lot more convenient than a CD player. If it just had an FM tuner, it’d be the most fantastic thing in the world.
It’s been awhile since I’ve flown, and it’s been a very long time since I’ve gotten onto a larger plane that’s not a CRJ. So as soon as I got seated on this Airbus 319 to head out to LaGuardia, I knew I had to get some sort of photo. Just look at the size of that wing!
Honestly, it was a very great feeling; almost felt like I was on a starship.
