For those of you who don’t know, star connector is a short term connection between the inside of the vessel and the outside of the vessel. Star connectors are made of plastic, made from steel, and are made of high-strength plastic. A little bit of an onion, garlic, and garlic cloves do them nicely for a couple of weeks after the vessel is sealed.
For the longest time I was a star connector myself. I’d have a quick conversation with my friend, and then I’d close my door and leave the vessel in his care. Then a week later I’d return to the vessel and he’d say “I think its closed.” Which meant I’d have to leave again. Eventually I made the decision to never again be a star connector, and I’m glad I did.
One of the biggest downsides to being a star connector is that if you close your vessel too long, your life will be over, and your vessel is the only thing that is not going to blow up. Some star connectors get pretty lucky though. The most recent star connector to blow up was the one who made it a point to always leave the vessel open at night, and the one who was also the only one to ever get stranded on Deathloop.
The only time anyone ever loses their vessel or has it blown up is if you die while your vessel is open. Unfortunately for the star connector, that day is far in the future. The only way you can get back into your vessel is to keep it closed for some time, and then just open it up for the rest of your life. While being a star connector seems like a pretty noble goal, it doesn’t seem like it’s very fun.
A star connector is someone who is constantly on-call, constantly on-leave, always on-call, and never on-leave. That’s pretty much everyone. If you are a star connector, it’s almost certain that you are also a time explorer.
Its funny, because we all have these expectations for ourselves, and to be honest, we think that everything we do is for a purpose. Star connector, its just you. Its a job. Its a job that will always be there, and while we may not like it, we have to accept it.
Now, there are some benefits of being a star connector. It makes you less likely to be laid off, and you can always find a new job. I’m not saying that its all roses and ponies though. It’s certainly not something you should be thinking about until you have a serious problem.
Unfortunately, star-connectors get laid-off at a rate of 1.5% a year, and the job market is a bit more competitive. That’s a lot of stress, and it’s not uncommon for people to wonder if their stress is related to star-connector stress. So let’s just say that you’re a star connector, and it seems like you’re not doing a great job.
Its not like a star- connector who is laid off doesn’t have a family. We live in a society where we’re all told that everyone is going to be successful and everyone is going to be the star of their own little world. Yet we still have star-connectors who still work hard to find jobs and get to their future goals. Its not like star-connectors can’t find jobs.
Star-connectors are just like you, they just don’t have a family. They just work hard and they just do what they have to do to be successful. They just don’t have a family. To be a star-connector your job is to connect the dots between the dots. It’s like having a jigsaw puzzle – you have to start with a blank canvas.
