As I walked into the common room of this "facility" I felt my steps nervously slow down. Before me was a large group of people who were "patients" just like me interacting with each other as if they were all at the popular local hot spot. There were groups playing card games, telling stories to each other, and sharing in the amusement of the most...

Today I had a bad day.

I've come to a rut in my existence that I can't seem to break out of. The sky is falling around me and though I know I should feel sad my endearment for the world I exist in keeps me wondering why. I am an active participant in the greatest mystery anyone could ever know yet I...

Keeping my fingers crossed that they'll find nothing serious during the colonoscopy. And don't we all tend to become somewhat complacent from time to time? I do, and whenever it happens I need someone to kick my butt to get back on track.
darquan223:
Thanks for the concern Baal. I think it's human nature to just get too comfortable where we forget what we are taking for granted. It shouldn't be anything too serious being that I don't have any other symptoms besides the pain. They told me it's likely colitis or something like that. Still enough to scare me though.

Not long ago it was my birthday and I hit thirty five years old. Its a strange feeling and it causes me to look around me to see what I've accomplished in those years. I don't really value money so long as I have enough to live so I'm feeling pretty good about that aspect of my life. The one part I...

Happy belated, honey ❤ I'm the same way, sometimes I get so caught up in life that I tend to let my social life fall to the wayside. You can always chat it up with me! Good luck on the novel!

I am a citizen of Earth.

This rocky, gas encased fishbowl we inhabit has sustained our species for thousands of years despite our lackadaisical attitude for its well-being. It is because of our arrogance that I always liked to think something would happen to interrupt our firm grasp on this planet through every level of existence we know. Not only did I believe it would...

Wow...really good work! The story got me hooked right away and I'd really love to read more. :)

Wonderful style! I'm really anticipating this.

I would just like to say I firmly believe we, as humans, deserve far better. We should expect more than to be slaves for money supporting a grossly overextended corporate government.
The only problem is most people are on such a steady diet from the propaganda machine they don't even see anything is wrong

baalseraph:
I think most people don't WANT to see anything wrong but instead enjoy floating with the current. It's much easier.

Well said.

While I've probably mentioned it before on this blog I'm a writer. I bring it up now because I've been hard at work lately writing one of my more new projects that has since snowballed into something near completion. While I'm only done with writing the rough rough draft it will still be the first full novel I've written in...

This honestly sounds pretty interesting, even though I think that the zombie theme is a little overused. Don't get me wrong, I love zombies, but they're friggin' everywhere! But as far as I understood, the story is not centered on zombies but on Steven and the question whether he's been in an zombie apocalypse or been in coma for the past few years. I definitely would give this book a try because of the concept you described. :)

While it might be obvious by now to anyone who has read my previous blogs I like to play video games and write for hobbies. Unbeknownst to many outside my own social circle however is that I have yet another hobby, building a bug out bag. While I'm not really expecting any apocalyptic event in the future I've found that learning about survivalism...

Looks like you are quite well equipped for a "just-in-case-that"-scenario. It's always a good idea to be prepared. I don't have a pack like yours, but I collected some stuff over the past few years which is placed all over my appartment and can be collected in around 15 minutes. I added some water purification tabs (although I'm a little skeptic about those), a compact water filter and a small and light (easy to carry) tent. No katana (I have one, but it's not usable) but a machete and a tomahawk by Walther, can opener, a knife (Walther again), mess kit, fire steel....and so on, and so forth. :)

I've been living in my apartment now for about two months and things are so far going well. My room mate and I don't see each other too much but when we do we have little trouble getting along. Bills are being paid, work is being done, and I'm slowly rebuilding my life again. I'm actually getting to the point now...

Sounds like you are getting some kind of "settled and content", if you know what I mean. That's a good thing, especially when reading the rest of your blog. You seem much more....positive. :) I played The Vanishing of Ethan Carter for a few hours but stopped for I have the feeling that this game requires my full attention instead of playing it besides two or three other games. It's not only visually stunning but also has a great and unique atmosphere. I think I'll give it another try soon. :)
darquan223:
I'm starting to feel like myself again, the man who realized just how ridiculous and enchanting the world can be rather than focus on the inevitable bad. Ethan Carter is an awesome game and I'd recommend it. You are right though, the intriguing journey it will take you on will require your full attention. It might be a short game too but I guarantee that once you put in the time you won't soon forget the experience.

I will be moving soon, though to a familiar city so it won't be that bad. This will be my official restart of my own life since my last breakup though and I feel like I've aged decades since then. It's hard to believe that it's only been a year and also that it's taken me this long to recover...

I think I've finally gotten to the point where I wonder what sanity is. I have reached a point where I can see the things and people in this world will eventually mean nothing to me because my mortal body will have expired. Yet just beyond that grim horizon I see a force so divine it stirs a passion in me unlike anything. It...

"The Walking Dead" got me hooked immediately with the first episode of season one, and the fascination for this game continued with season two. It's clearly a masterpiece, all the more considering the relatively low budget Telltale Games had at their disposal. I really love it and can't wait for season three to be released! :) I can also recommend "The Wolf among us", another Telltale Games production, which is in many points very similar to "The Walking Dead", but is based on fantastic comic book series "Fables" and has it's own dark and gritty atmosphere and excellent storytelling. :)
