SpaceShip (3/10)

It started with a tv show. “Space… The final frontier” said the disembodied voice. And then you see her. The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-d. I was caught it was the coolest thing I had seen as a kid. Take in mind this was the early 90’s the show was already into its lifespan. Going from the “Silver Hawks” and “Thunder Cats” to real life androids and the Borg! I was blown away. All the sudden the doors to science fiction were blown open. I devoured every episode every movie including and not limited to; bugging the manager of a Jack N The box for his name tag, because they were shaped like communicators at the time. This was 94 and I was ten when “Generations” came out. I started watching TOS and just wishing I could be Kirk.

I did not have a great upbringing. The lessons Trek taught me are still prevalent.

  1. Don’t be selfish: The needs of the many out way the needs of a few.
  2. Don’t be a Racist or sexist: Female Chief Security officer that kicks ass. Almost all data episodes. Warf! The first interracial kiss. Sulu (Oh My) I could go on and on
  3. Be a captain but there is always more to learn
  4. Keep learning and exploring; “…Seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.”

And for me the most important. You can do everything right, and still lose. You have to face fear. To quote another brilliant SiFi series “Fear is the mind killer” in the new time line there is a quote that i always loved.
“The purpose is to experience fear, fear in the face of certain death, to accept that fear, and maintain control of oneself and one’s crew. This is the quality expected in every Starfleet captain.”

This is how i live my life. Think logically and steady. Anything I’m going threw is not impossible its just difficult. With my family or at work this is something that has always made me thrive under pressure. At the end of the day tho. It was that ship. The way it felt so real to me as it flew threw space.

Oh and one last thing.

Live Long and Prosper 🖖

Today I….. (Day 2/10)

Today I finished Cobra Kai on YouTube red. It was an amazing show. It really got me thinking, Was this a Star Wars story? The whole show revolves around Light and Dark and Balance. The struggles each character faces. Dealing with the internal battle all, forces of the dark side. Johny is your typical Sith but his true divinity points him to the light. Danny is your Jedi the old guard who has become detached from the ways of the force. Ther young padawans each fighting and growing in there quest for balance. It’s a great Star Wars story. In my opinion, its a lot better Star Wars movie than The Last Jedi was.

Trying something new.

Okay, so I’ve been completely obsessed with skillshare as of late. I decided to check out a “class” about writing challenges. The object is to write for anywhere from five to fifteen minutes on a prompt. The first day is “Today I noticed” and I go on a ten-minute rant on hot dogs. I can’t wait to see what the next one is. Please if you like the idea please join in and leave your writing doodle in the comments.

Today I noticed… (Day 1/10)

It’s the bread. The bread of a Costco hot dog is what really sets them apart. Its the soft and steamy bun and the crisp snap of the hotdog. Then there are the sesame seeds. Overall its a perfect combo of soft and firm. Moist and juicy that play so well together. Now I like my hotdog plain. Nothing to distract from the taste. There are two things I love on my hotdogs: Cheese and chilly. Caspers hotdog is a close second to the Costco hotdog. The crisp of a Caspers dog is unmatched. Now I’m sorry Hebrew National and ballpark your not gonna cut it. That said I think no one here will argue that any hot dog BBQ and cooked to well done, taste amazing. Now the only thing for me to try is a real New York street dog. I also hear Chicago do not fuck around with there hot dogs. Until I actually try them Costco is king.
