During my 2nd to last week of college at ETSU, I was in the print lab getting ready to hand in some stuff for Typography. It was semi-bittersweet; I wanted out of school because it felt like I was just being stuck there and not accomplishing a whole bunch, but I loved how it felt being late spring and having a bit of roam in the print lab. I happened to look out the window and saw how nice the yard looked outside, and decided to grab a shot. You can see a bit of me in the mirror in the lower right corner.

 

This was Ball Hall for those who was curious, 2nd floor I believe. I think this is looking north towards the big yard in front of Ball and Sam Wilson.

Before I left home this evening, I saw how the lighting was hitting against my Sheena figure. It looked real nice, and also figured out I’d test the camera out on the iPhone. Color me surprised, it exceeds that of the HP717 I’ve been using for so many years.

 

Well, she has the entire desk to herself this Memorial Weekend. Maybe she’ll poke at Mass Effect behind her. Now if she could do other stuff in the meantime that’d be useful.

I apologize if the photo is blurry, but I swiped this from my Mom; she caught this as I was boarding my car to head to my apartment, with m last load of precious items to permanently stay at my apartment. Class was the next day, so the earlier I left and got settled in, the better. I told my family goodbye and basically just left on the dot at 6PM. It was a very weird and strange feeling, and I had never felt so independent in my whole life.

 

It was bittersweet, but I had been longing such a chance since I was supposed to go to Walters State in 2005; and this felt like a new page, a new reset to try again. But for the most part, it felt a lot better and more solid than what was going on then. Like something right had at least happened.

Zelda: Is our new home not amazing?

 

Sheena: Yeah! The high speed internet! No cows in the backyard! The city!

 

 

As my time was winding down at my factory job, I was starting to spend weekends and occasional nights at my apartment to get the feel of what it’d be like living there. This was one of those times. While plodding away at the computer, randomly decided to pose my Sheena and Zelda figurines together and snap this.

I went out with a connection of mine, meeting them in Johnson City to just get my mind off of some nonsense that was going at. We were originally going to go to an Indian restaurant, but they were doing that “siesta” thing where they close between lunch and dinner. So we ended up at Ryans’ instead.

 

I think near the end of us eating, I just wanted to top off so I made a face out of my food. She certainly got a kick out of it. Now if they’d have onion rings more often…
