…you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. 

Tomorrow is my last day at MAL.

The path that we’re on isn’t always clear. And I’m beginning to accept that even if you try to control and understand everything, you just can’t always know where the dots are leading you.

It seems I was lead to this place at exactly the right time. I can’t articulate the importance of the magical experiences & people I’ve met in the last year.

However, people & events aligned to tell me this is right moment to take a risk, to go out and try something I’ve wanted to do forever. I believe I’m finally ready to overcome the mental barrier that has been impeding my ability to make things… To figure out what those things may create… To accept that this is what makes me, me. 

It’s time to jump.

I’m tombot to some, tomarthur to others, often a goof, overly humble and incredibly stubborn at the same time. I can’t accept things for the way they are and I want to bring good things to life. 

You know I’m not usually one to quote people. But I feel like I’m finally understanding what Steve was trying to tell us:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your hear tand intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Here we go.

Amy Diamond is a student at a normal highschool of Nth New York (the namers stopped counting after 89th destruction through shenanigans) - a city full of life and lights. She is almost blind and cannot ever recover her vision, but she still keeps being cheerful and likes to be around people, despite the occasional bullying. She studies to become a captain of a starship and dreams of commanding one of her own - just like her father did.

TomBOT is a small A.I. robot who accompanies Amy wherever she goes. It was a gift from Amy’s father before his disappearance. It has a cheerful, yet a little naivë look at things and often fails to realise it is in danger. It tries it’s best to be the best helper and friend for Amy. TomBOT mostly functions as eyes for Amy, but does other tasks as well, like cooking, shopping and cleaning. It manages all chores with it’s small arms usually hidden in the circular compratments.

Our very own Tombot and the talented Ms. Justine Dorsey in their latest efforts via the marvelous folks of Steamy in the City (subscribe to their youTube channel here:  http://www.youtube.com/user/SteamyInTheCity?feature=watch ). It’s a cover of the No Doubt song, Settle Down, and if we do say so ourself it’s quite a nice rendition. Enjoy.
