A New Chapter

health housing vent
I’m finally done with college, sort of, and moved out for good. I’m not sure what happens next, but I think I deserve a break from work and exams and stuff. Going through this pandemic, getting my knee injured and not fully recovering even now, and losing my home, pets, and most of my things while going through college courses was hell. It’s over now, apart from a senior project that got put on hold during all this, but I have no classes and no on-campus life after this. Read more...

Updates On This Crazy Year

health housing social-media twitter
My life has been moving at a breakneck pace for the past couple months now, and a lot has happened since my last update. I’ll try to break it down by topic in no particular order. Housing Situation The “post-pandemic” (in quotes because it’s not over but businesses and the government are treating it like it is) housing issue is horrible. People in my area are getting forced out of their homes en masse now that the eviction moratorium is lifted in New York State. Read more...

I always love making trips to Poseidon IV. It’s one of those touristy destinations that a lot of people shy away from because of water worlds, but it’s my favorite spot to go to. Luckily a cargo run brought me into this sector, and the ship was due for some maintenance on its sub systems. Not systems within systems, I mean sub systems. Like submarines. People thought I was nuts for buying an old deep space science vessel to run a small shipping business but the fun exotic planets pay the good money too. Read more...

Sigh… Please, try not to laugh at my voice while you listen to this. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering, “Sierra, how did you mix up the air tank hookups again”. It’s hard! There’s no difference in the wall ports! Cut me some slack will you. Wait no, if I’m still up here when you see me next, do not cut the slack. I don’t want to float away! Read more...

I… I never thought I could wear out. The past few weeks I’ve been struggling to shift, each form more solid then the last. But now, I think, I can’t change anymore. It’s been, what. No… My chronometer can’t be right, it’s been 5,000 years? How have my memory banks not been filled yet? Of all the forms I’ve chosen over the centuries, I think this, this is the best one to stick with for however long I can go. Read more...

sci-fi transformation aptophilia magitech inflatable
Today I reminisced about the day I went through my nanite conversion. I was very disoriented at first. Going from my original broken human body into this was not an easy transition. I’m just glad nobody recorded me struggling to build a coherent form… … …well I did, for, uh, reasons. Look, I just wanted to be able to look at the process happen okay? It’s not every day you can see an actual transformation take place in the real world! Read more...

I stopped by in the Rigel System to go to the big magitech expo and take a look around. It didn’t seem much like an expo, there were a lot of performers around. Of course, I walking around as basically a big balloon animal, got mistaken for one of the props. They didn’t believe me when I said I was just a nanite synth, they didn’t bother scanning me until after the act was over to validate my ID. Read more...

Being a synthetic creature has its perks. The nanites that make up my body can rearrange themselves into just about anything, so I can experiment with new shapes and sizes. I try to emulate something not-so-obviously robotic, but I can do so many synth-y things despite my looks. It’s a lot more convenient to just turn my hand into a tool instead of carrying around a toolbox everywhere. Maintenance on the ship is a breeze, I can look in all the service panels to see hot spots and pinpoint all the little broken components without needing to do tedious scans. Read more...

Today was just one of those days. I had to pick a magmat1 haul on April Fool’s, the most unpredictable day of the entire standard year. Paws2 recording. Is it picking up my peach3 correctly? Ugh. It didn’t even– You know what? I’ll just keep sqrrrking4. This was supposed to be a short run, Alpha Centauri to Sol and back in time for dinner. Picked up the cargo at 06:00 ship’s thyme5, estimated arrival at Goal6 by 13:00 if the traffic is bad on the main routes. Read more...
