Personal Log: Settling In

Posted on Tue Aug 11th, 2020 @ 8:28am by Lieutenant JG Gypsy Sage


Gypsy settled into the nice sofa in her quarters. She had added her touch to it of course adding a nice throw and some ridiculously plush pillows. She lay back and sighed. "Computer begin personal log."

The computer chirped twice telling her that she could go ahead and start her log.

"Personal log Lieutenant Junior Grade Sage." She giggled.

"I have been waiting so long to say that. This has been...amazing. Promoted and moved to a new ship. I was always one to like moving, I mean I did it so much as a child that it was something that burrowed into my blood. I am definitely moving up too. This is the first time I have had my own quarters. It's not huge by any means but it is nice to have it all to my self." She smiled.

"So... so far things have been great. I've been getting to know the staff and my way around the ship and have even had a few appointments. I must say if everyone is as healthy as the three I've seen so far I will be out of work fast."

Sighing she closed her eyes. "I just got a call from my old Second XO on the Firestorm, he's an XO now on his own ship. It appears that one of his friends is here and he wanted me to look in on him. He is, conveniently, off ship, the friend that is. We'll see how things go when he gets back. Haru...something. To be honest I haven't had a chance to look up the file fully but I haven't had a chance to do anything."

She laughed. "I am looking forward to my day off tomorrow as I will use it to unpack fully. I can't wait to make these quarters my own. I must admit to a shopping spree when I found out I would have my own."

Her brow furrowed. "It's odd that I have a gypsy soul and love to move yet have begun to nest here." She sighed. "As a counselor I should probably look deeper into that but...hell if I will." She grinned. "So far things have been good, I must admit to a feeling of gratefulness for a lot of what I have been given."

She paused and took a sip of her drink and then lay back down on the sofa. "Recently I opened an old journal of mine and was able to find what I thought my life would be like when I was a child. I was surprised at how much more I got and to be honest humbled by how much I needed the little things in life when I was young." She paused again and contemplated things.

"Well I should sign off. This log has put me in a reflective mood. Computer end log."

When the computer chimed off she saved the log and then settled in pulling throw over herself. Perhaps a nice nap and then she might start unpacking tonight.
