Day 3: After I woke up I showered and I decided I would buff up. I examined my image and I look a little scrawny I am 5'9" and about 140 pounds. If I stayed on this ship I'm sure I could bulk up to 250 or 260. Especially since I have 8 years.... I spent 2 hours in the gym after that. Then I remembered about pour personal items we had limited space but I got my valuables. You know the stuff you can't live without. Well in the medium sized bag I managed to pack my phone that doubled as a hard drive. It had most of my computer on it. I also brought a few of my larger coins and a few decks of cards... its good to be entertained and to have a skill to practice... after unpacking I went to the rec room and checked to see if anyone looked interesting. I haven't seen Karen all day so I'm sure she was here most of today. I dint even hear her wake up. In the rec room I met a man named john he wore a classy suit and a brown overcoat. It was interesting. He talked in an accent. When I asked why he sounded British. He said he was. I laughed. His companion was a pretty blonde girl she was interesting she went by Rose. Such a nice name. After talking to them I walked around and saw a few faces I remember seeing at the meeting yesterday. I'll finish up later. Karen just came back.
Ok so Karen had been at the rec room all day. It is a big room I can see how I didn't see her. Well she didn't even talk to me when she came in she went straight to the bathroom and didn't come out for what seemed like an hour my clock showed 2000 hours so I was ready to go to bed and didn't want to seem rude not saying goodnight or acknowledging her so I waited and said goodnight and asked how she was she said homesick and lied down. After that I curled up in bed and slept

Day 2: I awoke in a daze and was confused as to why i wasn't at home on my bed. After remembering where i was i sat up and did a few stretches. a quick survey of my room told me 3 things. Karen was awake, the room was the same as i left it when i slept, and life was going to be getting repetitive fast. Yesterday when i boarded i gave up my to the attendants of this craft. I hadnt gotten it back yet. i briefly wondered where it was before standing up and after a few stretches i took a quick shower. the bathroom was nice it was stark white with a sink and a simple stand up shower. next to the sink was a small tube that had a plastic covering. there was also a button that said VITAMINS i pushed the button and 2 pills popped out. I left them there for fear of not wanting to take something i might regret later. i shaved and dressed myself in the same jeans i wore yesterday and a shirt they provided me with. i was still wondering where karen was when i heard a female voice say "SWEET! A treadmill" the gym i totally had forgotten about it. as i stepped through the door that led to the gym i was blasted from above with cool air. it was like the kind that they had in grocery stores like when i was a kid. after thinking on that for a while i looked up and saw Karen. "woah" i managed to stay. as my pants got a little tighter i re-adjusted myself and just stared. She was beautiful. Her shorts showed lots of tan leg and her shirt exposed her midriff i was pleasantly surprised that she looked so good. Then i heard that female voice again. the same one from the decontamination chamber. Would all residents of The Ark please wake up, get dressed, and wait to be escorted to the Rec Room. I stood in shock for a moment while i thought about what i just heard. escorted? are we some kind of sheep? then i thought of how big the ship was. "i probably would get lost" i said aloud "hey spaceman did you enjoy my ass?" Karen yelled at me from across the room. I couldn't think of a witty reply so i just said "we should go." as we stepped out of the Gym i was blasted by a second cool rush of air. then the reality of the situation i was in hit me. i was in the middle of a spaceship. Bound for a planet eight years away. away from my home. My planet. My earth. everything i had ever known was gone. i started to cry and laugh at the same time. i probably looked like a maniac crying and laughing like i was. i quickly collected myself and slipped on the shoes they provided for me at the entrance. After Karen got her shoes on the door slipped open and revealed what looked to be like the same man who brought me to the entrance.  "what happened to me not seeing you again?" 
"what do you mean sir?" The voice was different. Less robotic. More subservient and less demanding. " Oh nevermind. i thought you where someone else." 
"Follow me sir and ma'am. The rec room is right down the hall."
As we followed the man me and Karen got to talking. i found out she had a brother back on earth whom she had to leave because he hadn't qualified to board. it seemed like a sensitive topic so i didn't really push it but i think the water has something in it or something. Karen just gets more and more attractive. Once we reached the rec room we found we where in a room of about 1000 other individuals. At the back end of the room was a woman. She was wearing a flowing skirt and a button up collared shirt. she looked like a business woman who decided to go clubbing. as soon as we entered the room a fellow passenger approached me. "Hey, Man. You know what they did with our bags man?" 
"No" i replied quickly. the guy seemed grimy and i was a little worried he might pull something 
before he could say more the woman spoke. Speakers projecting from unknown panels of the ship boomed her voice and the room was instantly silent. 
"Hello, passengers of the Ark. I am Mia, the pilot. i will be flying this ship for the next 8 years. What I say goes."
I Chuckled "typical woman. Power hungry...."
"You will be receiving the personal belongings you took on board as you exit this room. Do not worry nothing was searched we only X-Rayed for weapons so we knew who had what. We also decontaminated everything. Electronics should be fine. If you do encounter a problem then you should take it up with one of the Arks Assistants and they will help you as best as they can. The ark runs on the 24 hour time system." she continued speaking for several hours on what proper conduct of other residents was and what action would be taken if we disobeyed. it seemed simple enough. be a sane member of society and you where fine. its not like we had to worry we where getting free food and entertainment. after she was done talking on that she said "This room is open between the hours of 0100 and 2300. there is a short cleaning period and then you may resume use." after that she told us to go back to our rooms and collect our belongings. I felt tired so after grabbibing my backpack i undressed and laid in bed and fell asleep.

Day 1: Upon stepping aboard the ark i found myself in a large decontamination chamber. The person at the entrance had handed me goggles and had asked me to put them on. Once inside the chamber the door on the other side lit up red and a speaker said "once decontamination begins please spin slowly to allow for total decontamination." As i spun slowly i wondered if i had made the right choice signing up for this. What if i miss home? the door flashed green and the speaker spoke again "You may now step through. Have a pleasant life aboard the Ark." The feminine voice was creepy and reassuring at the same time. after stepping through the decontamination chamber a pale well dressed man approached me. He spoke in a very calm tone and said "Hello, You have been chosen to live in Dorm 3483. I will escort you." 
I folled him down a long hallway passed several doors. at the end of the hall was an elevator we stepped in and he spoke once more. "I am here to assist you to your dorm and answer any questions. once we have reached your dorm you will not see me again. you have been chosen to live with female number 6489. She also goes by Karen. Any questions?" His robotic tome and manner was off putting so i just grunted "No"
The elevator stopped and we walked down a very similar hallway to an unmarked door somewhere near the middle. I had read about everything before coming here so figuring out where things where was easy. I told the well dressed man to leave and got no reply. i looked around and he was gone... "silent little fuck ain't he?" then i heard a voice. A female voice. "Hi I'm Karen" she wasn't the most beautiful in the facial department but the curves of her jeans and how her shirt hung down made me a little stiff. I told her my name and we got acquainted. She studied economics before she got onto the Ark. I told her i did to and we talked for a while. After that i showered and decided to start keeping a journal.
End of day 1
