The Gist of Me

I’m an amalgamation. Simple right. I mean it’s not simple being an amalgamation of so many different things, but you get the gist.

So what is my make up? I mean you know one part already if you’re here reading this blog post. But where to start? I could tell you I hail from the great (I’m a football fan so I do still consider it great, it’s complicated) state of Nebraska. I was born in the capitol city of Lincoln and raised there for ten years until I moved to Windsor, Colorado. I could tell you that even though I’ve never gone through an ancestry site to figure out what I’m made up of in the far reaches of history that I have a lot of German in me apparently. Also a tiny, tiny amount of Native American (dude it’s such a small amount I used to call myself a redskin because when I get sunburned my skin stays red forever, which I thought was funny). Yet…

When it comes to calling myself an amalgamation (something I’m sure you can say of yourself) I’m thinking of so much more than where I’m from and what my ancestry is. I’m thinking of the books I’ve read, the things I’ve seen, all I’ve learned (I’ll get into that later), experienced, left behind, called my own, etc.

I think of myself as so many things and yet I have this feeling that if I tell someone that I’m schizoaffective then that’s what I’m going to be known as. Hell, depending on the person it may not even be that it may just be “that crazy guy.”

Red Dead Redemption and The Greatest Video Game I’ve Never Played

It all comes back to this. I’ll never forget the first time I saw this trailer for the greatest game I’ve ever played, Red Dead Redemption 2. The way the music builds and swells right around the time Arthur Morgan begins to speak, saying “listen to me, when the time comes, you gotta run and
