Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"There are many things you need to know. First, we won't
reach the stars by working alone."
My eyelids slowly flutter open. I notice a faint blue glow, passing
through a thin layer of glass which encases me. Bands that had gone
unregistered, click, releasing my wrists and ankles.
Stretching my fingers I hear a faint hissing noise. With a loud
"Pop!" the glass imprisoning me haltingly lifts away.
A single question burns in my mind, "Who am I?"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"Preparation is the key to survival, those who do not
A sharp mechanical voice rattles out an indecipherable series of
what I assume are supposed to be words. Right at the end it clears
up enough for me to hear, "last .no.... occupation, constr...tion
The words jog my memory, I recall working with people in an office
but spending time next to materials and concrete. It remains a
haze, I'm sure I will recall more in time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

it could tumble over at any second. But it's
I attempt to step forward, my legs betray me and I nearly fall to
the floor. Or is it a deck? I steadied myself reflexively,
balancing on half my foot. Interesting, I guess I'm not
Looking around I realize my hand seems blurry. My vision doesn't
seem to be very clear. There is a compartment next to my .... bed?
It looks more like a pod. I'm starting to feel like I'm in a
science fiction movie. Hopefully it has lots of camera
In the compartment next to my pod I find. My glasses. And a cell
phone. I try to turn it on, no luck. Huh, I guess the battery is
dead. And no charger. The cell phone makes it all seem so
Putting on my glasses, this place looks even more dreary. As much
as I like blue skies, whose idea was blue emegency lighting? Empty
corridor, no other "pods".
As I look around I see a locker to my left. I move unsteadily
towards it, my legs still weak from my long nap.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

"Quality entertainment is a matter of perspective. I'm sure
the banana peel doesn't think it's funny."
Hmm, it appears that I really packed this locker.
The first thing I notice is a kindle. I pull it out then check the
charge. Looks like it's good to go. That's weird.
Powering up the kindle I look through the directory, reading the
titles to myself quietly; "Song of Ice and Fire, The Wheel of time,
Animorphs, Star Wars Thrawn trilogy, Tigana, Trilisk, Essays on
feminism..... " I guess I have reading material for a while.
Once I set the kindle down I see a charger, which should work for
my cell phone and kindle, I hope.
I continue investigating the locker. I pull out a flash drive. As I
reflexively move to put it in my pocket, I realize something pretty
obvious. I don't have any pockets. I appear to be wearing a
jumpsuit. A comfy jumpsuit, kind of like a Stitch Onesie. I tuck
the flash drive into the sleeve of my jump suit.
As I look back to the locker I notice a tube. Mashed potatoes and
gravy. Sounds delicious. I decide to try some, I've never been
afraid to try new food before. Hmm, not bad.
After searching through the locker for a while, I organize the
contents into several piles.
I have several food tubes. There are a lot of interesting variants.
There's butter chicken, rotisserie boar, the mashed potatoes and
gravy tube and teriyaki chicken tubes. Thankfully there's no sushi
tubes. Ugh, I don't even want to think about fish in a tube.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"When you're out there, alone in the black, nothin's as
important as who's got your back."
I loop a bandoleer I found in the locker around my jump suit. I
strap on my cell phone and stash the charger. A picture I found, of
me with my friends, goes under the jumpsuit, near my heart.
Adjusting my glasses, I grab a tube of butter chicken for the road
then set off to see what else I can find.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"There's more stars in the sky than I can count in a
lifetime, but I'm here with you. How do you like them
As I walk along the corridor, I reach a dead end. There's a small
window on the end of the corridor. As I peek curiously out the
window I realize....
I really need some mouth wash. 100 year bed breath, yikes.
As I gaze out the window I confirm what I suspected, I'm in space.
On some kind of ship. Looks pretty bad ass.
Turning around I walk back up the corridor the other direction.
Passing my pod, I realize the light seems to be getting
I find a dispensary for the food tubes in the next corridor,
shedding a soft white luminance. Continuing on I notice a ladder
leading to a hatch above me. I climb the ladder, heave the hatch
open, and poke my head into... a bridge?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
"Equality is a lie, but the struggle for equality, for me, is
the greatest goal."
Ow, the light is nearly blinding here.
There are what appear to be controls spread around a comfortable
looking chair. I settle into the chair examining the controls. Some
are labeled, but most of the functions elude me.
God, I wish this place had a kitchen.
I find a lever that appears to control the blast shield. I pull it.
The blast shield pulls away so slow as to be painful. After a
minute I think I can see stars above and a deck below. I wait for
the blast door to reveal the ship I've awoken on. It looks solid,
elegant and a little beat up around the edges. I'm already in
I turn my attention back to the console. I have an eureka moment
when I realize that the chair is set to face a piloting
Placement seems weird but I've played enough video games in my life
to know how to fly by the seat of my pants.
The console blinks,
There's someone else out there. I look at the readout, a couple of
interesting bios are available. Key traits: independence,
intelligence, confidence and sarcasm.
Suddenly a view screen flickers to life. Coming into focus is the
captain of another ship, which is itself on the cusp of visual
range. The captain speaks, her first words ..........
