Me in ‘Murica

Look at me experiencing new things in reality. From July 3rd-8th I had the pleasure of visiting The Great American State of New Jersey on a first time leaving Canada vacation adventure (TM)!

Not gonna lie, those now long passed few days in the USA were some of the best days of my life. Getting away from my boring routine in lil ol’ Nova Scotia and seeing people in reality did wonders for my depressed old soul. The biggest highlight of the entire trip was meeting two of my closest blogger buddies offline for the fist time: Athena of AmbiGaming and The Shameful Narcissist. I can now confirm that these two are total badasses in reality! Definitely give their online blogs a follow.

Wow, though. The whole trip is something I never want to forget, and my terrible memory is already shedding details like crazy. I’ve decided to do one of those fancy travel blog thingys and here it is:

LightningEllen’s Adventures in New Jersey, and New York City. It’s like one of my video game babblethroughs except it’s real life stuff. Enjoy!

Pete’s Corner Episode 10 feat. LightningEllen (Me!!)

ZOMG! Super huge shout-out to Omar over at Drakulus.com for inviting me to be a guest on his latest podcast episode. It was so much fun chatting with him… and also so, so far outside of my comfort zone to verbally talk over the internet instead of type words. I had a blast talking to him!

Check it out below.

⚡Thanks for reading!⚡

Critical Warning: Mental Health Meltdown Imminent!!

Homer Simpson Meltdown
Ahhhhh!!! Wut do I do???

I’m so sorry, internet, but my mind is a freaking mess, no matter how hard I try to fix it. I haven’t been able to social media at all this past week… just focusing on work (busier than usual) and a neat IRL side project with an old college buddy (tight deadline on that one). My moods are all over the place: irrational rage, sadness, hopelessness, intense feelings of isolation, and my anxiety levels have been way over 9,000.

It’s a definite pattern with me. I’m on top of the world for a while, then I crash hard, push everyone away because it feels like they are pushing me away, feel lonely, feel bad about everything, feel really happy again… cycle repeats.

Anyway, detailed personal whining about the whys of what’s bugging me incoming. Feel free to ignore this post. I’ve hinted a bit about some medical things I’ve had going on lately, and this is the full lowdown now that my brain has finally snapped (again). I guess I just need to vent on the internet with this post. The important thing is that I didn’t delete myself from the internet this time. A definite improvement!

Reader discretion is also strongly advised since this post contains coarse language and depressing themes.
