Finished cleanup today, just in time too. Took soup again for lunch though. Tomorrow we should be back to blissful boring routine… on the other side of the kick.
Got off shift a quarter early. Drifted around the observation room. Shohs is beautiful from this distance. This may be the last we see of it; The last we’ll see of home for a long time in any case; Unless the kick fails of course. The orange and pink blend together into a brilliant point of light, backed by the stars and Hommel’s Nebula. There really isn’t anything like open space. Still a bit creepy though. Like being caught too deep.
Tomorrow we’ll be in a new system. New clouds, new storms, and of course new equipment malfunctions. After scrubbing decks, I’m really looking forward to it!
