look at all that coffee

Cultural Exchange With the Angara

This is the museum on Aya.  And these two are historians who put together an exhibit for the new neighbors from the Milky Way:

Here is their exhibit:

Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

A coffee machine, very important.  After all, one can’t do exploring without their coffee!

A soccer ball, or football.  Yes, sports are great community binders that many people can relate to.

Ah, yes, alcohol!  The most important social lubricant!  Very good for teaching angara about such unique elements of Milky Way culture, like the walk of shame!



Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
