For my first company dinner, the group went out to Timberwood Grill. It actually was a great place to eat, and I had spiffy food of buffalo wings, along with fish and chips. All in all it was a good experience, and I would recommend.
Right before snapping this picture, a coworker was announcing that “I was taking pictures of my food” in a mocking and obnoxious manner. Yeah, whats-your-name. I will take pictures of my food if I like. Just the same way you can take dozens of photos of your kids.
Personal advice from me. Let people mind their own business in peace sometimes, and don’t be a loudmouth about it just because you can. Thank you.
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!
While I was back in ETSU, I followed a girl by the name of MellasFenixxes on deviantART. I loved her stuff and while I kept tabs on it, never thought about commissioning her till my first job started. Over the summer I was brave enough to ask her to commission a long-standing idea I had, some of the Disney girls dressed up in the outfits from Touhou. The first one we worked on was Esmeralda; this was the final result after I went back a few times to fix the background.

At my workplace, we have a whiteboard in the little kitchen area. Nobody really does anything on it except post a motivational flyer now and then. So I tried to add some funny doodles a few months in. I was inspired by a Dalek meme I had seen in school back in the beginning of the years, so I adapted it a bit as if they were working the job I was. 😛
Unfortunately, my coworkers didn’t appreciate it. It got erased a day later and nobody made a single comment on them. I never drew anything on their big whiteboard again.
Something from Motion Tools 2; I can swap out the sky and put in a different background. Yay?
In all honesty I love how it came out, though. One of my video projects I’m more proud of.
This was my final project for Motion Tools 2 class. Greenscreen and composites! I tried to go for a half-cyberpunk feel with the music and setup. If anything, this was fun at least.
I had just started playing Borderlands 2 on Xbox. Me being the creative fellow that I was, I drummed this up after falling in love with a long-barreled pistol in the game. That particular instance it was called the “Longarm”, hence the name.
I actually had a trigger but it tore off very easily when cutting the hole out. Oops.
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.
