The fireworks are dying down; it’s officially 2023 and it’s just you and me, camera…😁

Last of the Mohicans
Kinda digging the new glasses.
So long 2022! (And good riddance!)
Another year gone! Happy New Year world. 🫀
And happy 11 year anniversary to my blog!
Busted water pipe repaired and the water’s running again. Thought that was worth a smile if anything is. Merry Christmas to anyone who finds him/her/themselves at this dusty corner of the web! 🫀
53 and my first pair of glasses. 🤓
16 & 1/2 years. My bestie. 🫀
Cynical on my best days. Tintype: Straight out of the camera/SOOTC.
Joining the “letting my white hair grow out entirely” movement. Haven’t shaved my legs in over 20 years (yeah I did just say that, ’cause I’m a badass like that) so I figure I’d add another arrow in my quiver. Turning 53 has its rewards! You just don’t give a flying leap who thinks what about you and that’s freedom.
My self portraits over the past few years.
Today is pretty rough. My monster Nutrition assignment is overdue (it’s about 10 pages long, or, supposed to be) and it’s been relatively difficult for me to stay on top of my work. My focus has been seriously lacking since this car accident.
I’ve been playing this game called “Overclocked”. Intriguing. (I’ve been an avid adventure gamer for 20 + years.)
The protagonist is a specializing psychologist who has been assigned to a grungy Staten Island mental hospital. He’s simultaneously working on 5 inmates’ cases. They’re all catatonic with amnesia. As he uses hypnosis and various other techniques, he’s able to trigger a sequence of flashbacks in the patients- one at a time. You’re then able to play the role of the patient- pre- breakdown. With each new flashback that the patient experiences, they begin further back in their lives, so it’s as if you’re walking backwards through their lives- further- each time, only in reverse. It’s pretty darn cool.
It’s rainy throughout the game, and the mood is appropriately somber.
It’s highly entertaining though, especially for a sociology and psychology student. 🙂
