Break from Studies
-

OK, I gave up. It was too much and nothing was really sticking in my brain.   So, I had to take a break. A real one. And thank every star in the universe Lio just happened to make his way into the library when I was actually beginning to melt into the old, smelly book.   We decided to go shopping. I'm so proud of him! The poor bunny hadn't taken a day off in forever, and he was given a week off. A much needed vacation. So, we went to look at clothes, and...   I absolutely love how eclectic his style of clothing is. He looks adorable in just about everything, though. It was nice to be able to give fashion advice and such... I haven't even been able to get clothes myself other than sleep shirts and the uniform...   And I bought the few things I had with tips from mixing. Which... I was told was not the way we got money. We... actually get a stipend? I feel like I was told this at some point, but I forgot it? Seems like a damned important thing to forget. So, that's something I am going to have to check up on ASAP, because I WOULD LIKE SOME CLOTHES... sometimes. Most of the time I do not want to bind these damned tentacles out of my back. Helpful, but STILL feel weird.   OH, we encountered Tsoki there, too! I have no idea how that squirrel has so many pockets. And it scares me. He's a blast to be around, though...   Haha, I hope he doesn't carry any bombs in those pockets.   But anyway, it ended up being a good day.   I promise I'll make up for the studying later!

Daily Activities - Update with Life
-

So it's been an insane ride so far. I've been trying to "find myself" with more work this time. No sitting behind a bar anymore. I've truly been thinking about where to go with this new science direction, and I've spoken with Quet about chemistry. So, being the smart ass motherfucker I am (partial sarcasm, the second part is absolutely true), I decided to start reading up as much as I could at the city library. Start from the beginning, right?   No. Wrong.   Whoever said chemistry was fun is out of their fucking minds. Balancing equations is the most boring thing I've had to do in a damned long time.   I tried to read, I tried to take notes, but it's just not sticking. Maybe I'm not cut out for this?   I'll try again another day, I guess.

"Hurricane" Exploration and Handling

I’ve been entrusted with another task, and it is something I couldn’t imagine being placed into. The passing through what seems to be the entire plane needed to be investigated. And our team discovered way more than what we expected, or what I did, at least.   - We found mushroom dog man, oh gods, I cannot remember his name for the life of me … but anyway, we found him close to the beach, right as actual monsters of the depths… the bad and gross ones, not the chaotic and fun ones… began to swarm out of the ocean, thanks to the storm. -   We safely were able to make our way to safe location to discuss the options we had regarding the mission as well as many important details. We were entrusted with an “anchor” for the storm. A large egg-shaped device that pulsed with magic.   - One good thing about me being stuck in this form here is that I always have a few extra limbs so that I can give an extra hand to anyone who needs it. -   Our party made our way to a ‘church’ somewhat nearby. It seemed like a sect of sentient porcelain dolls were attempting to harness the entire hurricane to obtain energy from it. To try and gather power from something as unpredictable as a superstorm seems foolish, but at the time, they seemed certain they knew what they were doing.   But, they didn’t. Unfortunately, there was surge of lightning while we were there, putting much of the team in danger, and almost killing two of our own. And, unfortunately, killing all of theirs.   So much happened so quickly it’s hard to recall correctly. It seemed like we were truly going to lose LETO again. He was going to give himself to absorb the storm.   - No one got fatally injured in our party, and with the help of the crew, there was definitely a net gain from the mission. Now we have an absolute superhero on our team: LETO. He can fucking fly. I bet he can shoot laser beams from his eyes, too. I should ask later.   NOTE TO SELF: ASK LETO LATER IF HE CAN SHOOT EYE BEAMS -   Also, part of the storm was controlled/a part of a manticore. I believe they called him a ManaCore? I could be mistaken. However, this sentient manticore is completely made of energy. Manticores were something of legend even from my own home, but nothing prepared me for this creature, no, person. This is a person. His name is Maverick, and we can learn so much from each other. I truly hope he stays part of the crew. I would love to be able to speak to him at some point, but I’m sure he will be having his paws busy with speaking to others in the crew, especially the Captain.

Working with Engineering - First Science Endevour

I've recently been made part of the science department, and truly thought I’d have some more scientific endeavors. Which I have, of course. I’ve assisted working on upgrading our “scuba” gear with Officer Lio Levon, the lead engineer, and that was very informative and helpful for even my own interpersonal relationships with other crew members. Something I truly need to work on if I want to actually be part of a *crew* and not someone who hides behind a bar or a room.   It’s not just that, but I really miss being able to enjoy the water. I know it’s nothing like it is at home here, but at least it’s something.   - I have no idea how old Lio is, but he’s incredibly intelligent. At least half his small body must be his brain! I really hope he doesn’t get pissed at me accidentally running him over. He seemed pretty OK despite … well… the circumstances, but this is one of those incidents that will keep me up when I am supposed to be asleep thinking on how stupid I am. -   Either way, he’s incredibly helpful, and it’s a good first step to working with scientific endeavors a bit more

Oh look a journal
DAY 1 OF MY DIARY

I'm not the super best at writing journals, but I feel like I really REALLY should start keeping one. Too much has happened not to document, and honestly, if I die, someone needs to know the crazy shit that goes down. I'm not making this up. Probably. Not this time.   Anyway, so, get this shit - I got sick and because I didn't have any PTO, I just kept working. JUST KIDDING! We don't get paid. I think? Do we get paid? We just take things most of the time. At least I got these sweet ass sunglasses.   I mean, uh, let me back up.   'K - a hole was blown in the ship. Not my fault, but B+, my second best Bee friend, next to Beezebubble - who is sleeping beside me - he snores so fucking loud. I lost my train of thought. Oh B+ and I ditched the cargo hold when it was getting flooded. Not like I can do much, I just can make things pretty and sound good and make people not pay attention to things. I can't melt steel or pick up heavy shit.   But that happened and we went to med bay but I got bored so I went to work and there was some crazy shit happening in the 'easy and uh we ended up beating each other up look I don't have strong arms why did I even try to do an arm wrestling thing i don't even know but THE CAP'N GOT RECRUITED TO WRESTLE   But I didn't get to see it very displeased   had to go with others to get fuckin magic shit that didn't belong I got this really cool belt and I had to get rid of this really cool belt   because   Okay backing up again   okay   We went to this wrestling competition. Captain had to do her thing while the rest of us did -secret awesome recon- to get contraband. We were SO fucking stealthy and not a soul found out. But we were able to get this magical belt... that we had to give up MY belt for. But it was worth it - for our cause -ya ken?   I made SACRIFICES.   But we also got information there may be a spy on board! And some magical crystals that look like they were used for scrying or summoning? ALSO, I got some bitchin ass sun glasses. Nothing else happened - it was pretty cut and dry! We did well, and I'm proud of our group!   Oh, we also got a new crew member. Oh by the -Abyss- did we get a new crew member. All four glorious, furry, hooved legs of her. I gotta find out what kinda shit she likes.     OH, ON ANOTHER NOTE - Am playing with putting things on sticks and frying them. No one says no to me when I go into the mess hall at night when they are asleep.   Sausage covered in batter and fried on a stick - Callin it corm dorg chocolate covered peanut butter covered in batter on a stick - callin it delicious   OOH! Beezebubble's wakin' up. Time to give him his daily gumdrops!
