And so, after a quick stop to check in on my family and re-take the aptitude test I found myself once again at university. For whatever reason, it took hours for the other students to arrive at the dorm so I occupied myself with some experiments which I failed miserably at. But like they say nothing ventured nothing gained right?
On my way to the meet and greet I stopped by the science building to correlate my scientific data. Perhaps they could give me some idea of what I was doing wrong. I also wanted to share some thoughts which they weren’t very interested in but gave me a few bucks for my trouble.
I won’t pretend that I’m the big man on campus or anything but I did get a bit of a thrill walking into the meet and greet this time. I was no longer a wet behind the ears Freshman. Look at me people, I’m a Softmore hear me roar!
And while we’re talking about roaring… met one of the elite rebels, Connie Cronk, there. I thought maybe since rebels are so fond of the megaphone she’d appreciate a loud greeting. Apparently not.
I distracted her with a confusing inkblot test and attempted to impress her with my rebelliousness but she seemed to lose interest in me and wandered away.
There’s something about vampires that I find super interesting so when I spied one after Connie had made her retreat I cornered him to chat. His name’s Troy Francis and unfortunately, this guy has no sense of humor. Not my kind at all. Both of my parents had a good sense of humor and I was raised with lots of jokes. It’s a shame not to share them with the world!
I got back to the dorm and a few stragglers had shown up but nobody had bothered cooking yet so I made a nice green salad to welcome them back. I noticed later that they’d sat down and eaten it together as a midnight snack. I felt a little left out but I still haven’t met any roomies that I like much yet.
Ann is okay. She plays the guitar really well and is super into music. She’s also a little rebellious.
But, if anything the roomies probably think I’m the weirdo. Locked in my room most of the day doing experiments. Another destroyed tomato.
I heard a rumor that the cheerleader jock girl Ashley was abducted by aliens! Better her than me. I’ve had quite my fill of it if you know what I mean.
In the morning I made my way out to tend the forbidden fruit plants. Looking good. I wonder what it is that these plants do anyway?
I keep killing all of the insects that I radiate. I created one plasma bug successfully and since then… nada.
So, that left me once again dumpster diving for some bugs. Which I really don’t mind at all. It’s pretty fun!
I found a spider and a strange gem. I’m gonna radiate the heck outta that spider later. Spiders creep me out. But it was the gem that held my attention. I had a strange glow to it.
The readings were off the charts! Apparently, it’s called Tiberium and has some special properties. I stowed it away for later since I wasn’t really sure what to do with it.
New plan. Jog everywhere! That’ll make me fit in no time right?
I decided to hold a rally. Get some awareness up about the upcoming calamity. This might also be a quick way to make some connections.
The protest was a huge success. Although, I think some of the people were unsure what we were protesting. At one point there was a sign featuring a yeti. I have no issues with the yetis let this be known. All-in-all I can say my first days back at the university were good ones even if my experiments aren’t going so well of late.
I decided to use the brain enhancer to change his traits when he got there.
For some reason, I was under the impression that this would be a lucrative thing to do but sadly I was wrong.
A couple of the more hilarious protest scenarious. Unicorns and yeti!
I noticed this new introduction when he was handing out protest fliers. Masters… Ivan Masters. So funny!
I thought this was way too over the top and goofy for the story but too funny not to share. I was really worried that he wouldn’t be able to succeed in a three-star protest but wanted to try because the reward was awesome. Extra lifetime reward points! I never did figure out how they are calculated but I did manage to complete a few big wishes in the next few days and he got a TON of points!
