This is my desk.
The screens starting from the left
- iPad (1st gen)
- AOC USB Monitor
- My laptop
- AOC 24″ monitor
My laptop is a HP ENVY dv6 behind it is a 4Tb hard drive. I use a Logitech K350 keyboard and mouse set and I have a Logitech F310 wired gamepad.
Other things on my desk are my wireless charge for my Note 4, a cup for water and a cup for tea. I also keep various notepads on my desk for if I need to write a quick note. I also have LED lights on the desk if I need more light. and my Bose QC15 headphones.
The last thing on my desk is one of the more important things on my desk. It is a frog statue, my wife’s nickname was frog so it is a little reminder of her I keep on my desk, like she is watching me to make sure I’m doing my homework.
I’m already ready for next semester, the classes I’m taking plus the class I took an Incomplete in. Well more like my professor telling me that I’m taking an Incomplete.
Hopefully in the next semester I’ll try to be a little better organized.
Finals are done and the semester is over. Almost time to head back to Los Angeles… first for my dad’s funeral then hopefully to try to salvage the holidays.
Either way it is a few weeks off before I return to Blacksburg for Spring semester.
In late August my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. Today he passed away. I was on my flight from Manchester to Charlotte on my way back to Tech. And my brother was texting me to call. I told him I was in flight and could only text. So he told me over text. Not the best way to find out your last surviving parent is dead but I understand cause it was the only way.
At least my dad isn’t hurting anymore.
As for me, I’m staying here to finish the semester then go home in time for the funeral.
I spend Thanksgiving with friends. It was great not being alone for Thanksgiving. I was able to have be able to have a good time and ignore problems for a little while.
I also forgot how fun it was to do dishes by hand with someone.
Sadly tomorrow I’ll be flying all day then back to the grind on campus.
We went to Boston, we went in with a great plan for all the things we wanted to do. Well, we didn’t do much. It was so cold walking around Boston was brutal. So we walked around for a little while then hung out at the hotel and watched the Patriots game in Boston.
I like to think we had fun.
Then next morning we went to Cambridge, with the goal of walking around Harvard and MIT. The only problem classes were still in session and we couldn’t find a place to park.
So we ended up in Newbury Port. We walked around there and had lunch then headed back to Dover.
I’m on Thanksgiving break and for the first time I’m going somewhere. I’m heading up to spend a week with my best friend and her family.
I got there and she met me at the airport and then we went to a diner and had french toast.
Then we hung out in Dover and Portsmouth for a day, because me and my best friend are heading to Boston.
Today was her birthday, it was a little rough for me. It was the first one since she died.
But it wasn’t all bad, I had a lot of friends contacting me to check up on me so I was able to catch up with them. I hope as time goes up it will get a little easier.
Today as part of the Vets @VT we participated in the National Roll Call.
We started at 2pm and listed all the names of those KIA/MIA in Iraq/Afghanistan. We finished about 8:30pm I had the honor of closing out the list.
