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.
Took my Wall-E toy to school today. While on a class break at the Greeneville campus this evening, I got a bit bored and decided to have him start cleaning trash on my desk. Don’t mind him, he’s just doing his directive!
While I was waiting for some evaluation results at the Walters State general office, I got to work with playing with some kid’s blocks they had sitting around. This was the final result; a rough version of the Vigilance from my to-be 2008 NaNoWriMo entry. Apparently the lady at the desk was somewhat impressed with it as well.
I’ll give getting to to around to places like Animazement some credence; it helped me just a bit become more outgoing and feel like I had something in common with somebody. So what does that have to do with a room shot?
Because I redecorated the room to what it is. I bought certain furniture, used paint leftover from my parent’s store to give it a facelift, and even bought some recessed lights to go into the ceiling. The result was this fairly attractive room, that had some styling to feng shuei and a tad splash of new age.
I had cleaned up my room pretty good as I was starting school again, and I decided to show you guys what it looks like before it got messy again.
And yes, while that view may be physically lovely (which it is sometimes, I admit), the lack of communication and connection with the outside world makes it one of the most depressing and soul-crushing vistas at the same time. You can’t communicate or reach out to people here, and it isn’t a place for a “non-local” college student needing friends, a girlfriend and a place to sink roots to start his life. Just my two cents.
This was part of an art trade I did with deviant user Cam-Sama. I had drawn a rough sketch of her character Randy, and she had done my Space Raptors character MTech with a bughat girl. This came out real cute and it’s nice to see this sort of art style with said characters.
This was a random boot I found while going to classes one day. Don’t know who it belonged to or even remember what size it was, but still; very odd sight heading back to my car from the library.
It’s been a few months since I’ve had my system, but a proper profile photo was in order. My new system, the Millenium Project Alpha. 1GB of RAM, 2.0Ghz Intel Duo Core, 160GB hard drive with a 128MB graphics card and Windows Vista.
The system carries on the Millenium project’s aspirations in name only. It is a very new system on the edge of the next generation of system hardware, and isn’t cross-compatible with any of my older hardware. However, it still is special as it is my first, brand-new desktop that’s all my own.
That said, it’s my go to system for everything I need to do. It’s not a shabby game machine either. It’s certainly a lot better than the computers at Walters State!
When looking to do some Christmas shopping this season, I ran across this oddity; a trailer for the UPS trucks! I never saw one of these before, so I definitely had to grab a picture of it. I guess the mall had a lot of business this season.
On our way to Washington D.C, we stopped at McDonalds for breakfast. Pancakes were the food of order; definitely enjoyed this, since our syrup never tastes like anything that can be made at home.
This was another piece that Tonks_92 did of one of my OC’s. I actually thought I had lost this one, until I found a USB drive that I hadn’t touched for years until recently (it’s no longer online). The hair came out real nice in tone. This was the last piece they ever did for me, haven’t really talked to them since then.
