A/N- I decided to call each semester 7 weeks. I really didn’t know how else to do it. Just pretend he only wrote sporadically I guess.
To no one and everyone. This is my journal. My countdown of days. University is a strange place after living so long in a bunker preparing for an apocalypse with an alien best friend. I’ve decided to recount my progress so that one day I can look back at this time.
I’m enjoying one part of trying to get the rebels attention more than any. Graffiti! My artsy family might disagree but this is where it’s at!
Samantha Grey is one of the head rebels on campus so I made sure to become friends with her. I totally won the juice pong contest!
We decided to group up and she showed me the wonders of dumpster diving!
Woah! It took me a few tries to get back out! Samantha thought it was hilarious. I said my goodbyes and headed back to the dorm to shower.
There’s this really cool brain enhancing machine! Sadly, I haven’t really got the hang of it yet.
After the darned thing gave me the shock of my life I crawled into bed to sleep it off too freaked out to even shower.
I was almost late for my first class! After that, I headed to the science building to take a science course as well. I’m gonna need all the help I can get if I’m going to pull off these experiments without help.
I’m not a very good cook yet. Luckily peanut butter and jelly is my favorite meal.
Back to the brain enhancer machine. I was really nervous this time.
Then, I decided to paint a bit. Let everyone see the fine arts major doing the whole artsy thing. Nothing to see here move along.
Another day of rain. I really want to get a closer look at that huge science project I saw and there are so many things I need to get done being stuck inside really sucks.
I used the inside time well, though. Trying to wrap my head around this science lab machine they’d snuck into my dorm. I’m feeling very underqualified for this mission.
I woke up this morning wondering if I’m even the right person for this. What am I doing here?
But, I ignore my doubts and push forward. I do love graffiti so much and it’s awesome that the rebels have taken notice of my work.
Lectures are so boring.
I met a cool vampire girl there at least. Her name’s Gabby. We don’t hang out because she’s a jock. Gotta keep my rep with the rebels.
When I see a prominent rebel around I quickly dive into a dumpster and start digging around. This has the added bonus of giving me some stuff to sell. I’ve even found a few collectibles that will hopefully be helpful for my experiments at some point.
More painting. I enjoy it but it makes me feel homesick.
I woke up this morning feeling more confident. Maybe it had something to do with the yummy waffles one of my dormies cooked.
I won’t lie. It was the weather! A beautiful sunny day. After class, I headed over to the science area and started a new ground mural while I scoped out the situation.
After watching the science geeks for awhile I thought I had the gist of it and joined them on the giant machine.
After interfacing with the green mind melder module a bit I decided to try adjusting the blue magnatomic pulse array.
Then I moved on to studying the red pad tie node. This machine had me truly fascinated!
A white beam shot out and I was so excited. I quickly ran to pull the lever.
But it was a failure. So much time wasted. But really, why did I think I could succeed at using this contraption on the first try anyway?
Feeling the need to run off my stress I headed over to the gym and hopped on a treadmill. I wasn’t very successful in that endeavor either. I decided to just cut my losses and go back to the dorm.
I got this cool new gizmo and figured out how to take a mineral sample from a bloodstone I’d gotten out of the dumpster.
Messing with the analyzer thingy cheered me up and I decided to do a little gene splicing experiment before bed.
I did it! Sucess! Ivan Masters secret scientist extraordinaire! When I wake up I’m so planting this seed to see what it grows into!
Just to assuage anyone’s thoughts that he was starting with any advantages. I did leave his relationships though because he won’t need them for job performance later and I couldn’t see how it would be cheating leaving them.
Note from the future: I realized after he got home from uni how having friendships already would be indeed cheating so I ended up making his relationship to everyone at home 1/100.
I seriously could not stop laughing!
I wanted to see what a loud introduction looked like. It did not disappoint!
