Brain Fog From Isolation

I had mentioned in one of my walking video clips, that I had noticed sometimes feeling like I am in a fog, and that I am fairly sure it is from being often isolated from other people.

I first noticed it around the end of Dec. 2017, when I had been by myself for about 2 months. Little things like: What time did I wake up? What did I do earlier today? Did I eat?

The reason I am sure it is from being alone so often is because, on the rare events, when I have taken a bus and put myself in to the public for most of the day it starts to clear up.

This morning I woke at 6am (still sleeping at night and not all day, yay), cut my hair and walked to the store to get food. I got back and sat down and thought, “I need to cut my hair today”. Of course I then remembered I already had. However, waking up, cutting my hair, shaving and taking a shower, then taking the trash to the dumpster and walking to and from the store is a blur, dreamlike.

I know it all happened. I can recall every detail of it down to the people in the store, to overheard conversations I heard them having. I remember some cars that passed me on the street as I walked back. Even when I cut my hair, I recall the wire of the clippers knocking into one of the plastic hair clips, pushing it into the sink. So, it isn’t memory loss, just a strange fog, like it was a dream, or a feeling like it happened yesterday.

I have had long periods in my life where I have been isolated before. I seem to recall something like this from the past, but in the past my isolation was…well less isolating, haha. I do not dislike this feeling, I do not find it scary, and at times I almost like it. It is almost meditative. For example, when I am walking I have noticed I blank out from my surroundings and go into my own thoughts. Of course I see everything around me, it is just sort of unimportant compared to what I am thinking and I am simply moving myself across the landscape as I hear cars zoom by. It is very much like when you leave work, get into your car and drive home. You are suddenly home, but you don’t even remember getting off the exit nor most of the trip. That is how this experience feels, only much longer and much more often.

Anyway, it seems to happen more when I first wake and it is not a constant, it comes and goes depending on my activity and what I am doing. I guess if you are alone a lot and experience this, I am just letting you know that you aren’t alone in it and if you want the “trip” to stop, just hang out with someone haha.

Perfect Criminal and Bubble Pop

One of my favorite international cross over songs, from Russia, that temporarily became popular in the United States, in certain (limited) markets is “Perfect Criminal”.

Another international cross over song I really enjoy is HYUNA – “Bubble Pop”, from South Korea.

Breeding Painted Lady Butterflies

I was going through some old pictures of mine online and came across photos I had taken about 5 years ago when I was raising a ton of Painted Ladies.

I had ordered 2 kits of caterpillars (I will post a link below if you wish to raise your own).

They come in a container like this. At the bottom is their food. They stay in this cup till they go into a chrysalis. Many people confuse it with a cocoon. Butterflies do not go into a cocoon, moths do. You can tell the difference between a cocoon and a chrysalis because a cocoon is usually made with dried leaves and/or webbing the caterpillar makes before it goes into its pupa (which basically looks like a chrysalis, just called a pupa) and is hidden inside that protective soft cocoon outer coating.

After the first generation hatched. I allowed them to mate, lay eggs on romaine lettuce leaves in a box I had made for them. Painted Lady caterpillars eat several plant species, but romaine lettuce is the easiest to feed them since you can get it at the store. In this case organic is usually best, but I have fed them non organic and they survived just fine. If you can help it, you really do not want to introduce pesticide to them.

So the pictures start on the second and third generation I raised. All were released into the wild. Painted Ladies lay hundreds of eggs. In the wild of course only a few survive, but with my care and protection I was able to have greater success.

This is one of the caterpillars. I was trying an experimental diet with him, that is why he was alone in the cup. It survived, but the experiment was a hassle and did not produce the easy outcome I would had hoped for.

This is many caterpillars feeding on their romaine lettuce.

This is a picture of all the chrysalises I ended up with in the third generation and last. Two reasons for it being the last generation I raised. Summer was ending and I needed them to have time to be free and prepare for the cold weather that was coming. Also, I had no idea if the first generation I started with were related in anyway. If you keep breeding with siblings you will end up with inbreeding issues, resulting in infertile eggs, early death and/or deformities.

This is a picture of one of the Painted Ladies. I actually think this is one from the first generation that came in the cup from the company.

This is a picture of a group of them. I would move them to this netted cage before I released them. I believe these are butterflies from the second generation. I think in total I released about 500 Painted Ladies that summer, maybe a little bit more.

O.K., so if you ever want to try your hand at raising Painted Ladies you can get them a few places online, one of those places being here: Insect Lore 5 Live Caterpillars-Butterfly Kit Habitat

Go Ask Alice

While working on a project this morning I happened to click on this video on YouTube, just for background noise. I ended up watching the whole thing. They talked so much about their weight in the beginning I honestly thought it was going to be about anorexia, it wasn’t. If for some reason you would like to get this movie on DVD I will leave the link to that below.

Inadvertently, a fourteen-year-old girl in the late American 1960s is sucked into an odyssey of sex and drugs. She eventually seeks help.

“One Step Beyond”: The Secret

My friend Chris recently brought this series to my attention. I have been watching the ones available while I have been taking breaks from my usual activities. You can get the full series from Amazon on DVD though and it is not that expensive.

So far, the video below is my favorite episode. This series has a strong “Twilight Zone” feel to it.

Created by Merwin Gerard and produced by Collier Young, “One Step Beyond” was hosted by John Newland, “your guide to the supernatural” (also credited as “Our guide into the world of the unknown”). Newland, who also directed every episode, presented tales that explored paranormal events and various situations that defied “logical” explanation. Unlike other anthology programs, the ABC network series episodes were presented in the form of straightforward thirty-minute docudramas, all said to be based on true events.

Took A Personality Test – Still An INFP

I needed a temporary break today from some of the things I was listening too and distracted myself by taking a personality test, yet again. I guess I was just checking the accuracy of my test results from the past. I once again came up with the same thing, INFP. Then, I watched a few videos on the INFP personality type, to basically listen to characteristics about myself, which of course I already know. I just wanted to hear them anyway haha. I will post a video below of one video I found that tells some of my main characteristics. I have never watched this woman’s channel before, but she seems cool.

This is the link “down below” she was referring to in her video.
