I MUST GO,
MY PLANETPALAVEN NEEDS ME
PAPA’S KIND OF BUSY RIGHT NOW HONEY
…and that’s how you turn one game, into every game.
I think I’ll have to refute a few things here.
NEET - Not in Employment, Education or Training
None of those are true.
I am self employed. I make an income running this blog you wish me to deactivate.
I also spend a great deal of my time self educating. I don’t have the luxury of attending any kind of school. In fact, my fake disease forced me to drop out of college, but I take pride in continuing to learn on my own. I have a rule that I must learn at least one new thing every day. My self education covers the gamut of astrophysics, philosophy, history, chemistry and, of course, photography.
In the past 2 years I have gone from knowing nothing about photography to having an advanced technical understanding of the major principles and techniques.
See this picture of my dog?
I did not just hit the button on my camera. It required balancing the exposure of the background with my artificial light source. I had to figure out the precise shutter speed to make sure the two would match. I used an external flash on a light stand off to the right. I set it up with an optical trigger and used my camera’s pop up flash to set it off. I used a small aperture to get deep depth of field, I used a low ISO to get the cleanest possible image, I lined up the tree directly in front of the sun so I would not get glare in my image. And I did this all while wrangling a spunky corgi with treats and a tennis ball.
No skills required to pull that off.
As far as other non-skills go…
I have 10+ years experience working with Photoshop as a graphic artist.
I have expert level knowledge in computer hardware and software. I have built many systems and repaired hundreds. I was a consultant for Hewlett Packard for a brief period before my fake disease got too disease-y.
I am a musician. I play guitar and bass and have had several years of vocal training. Here is an instrumental in which I played all the parts (minus percussion) and recorded it myself.
Here is a picture of my beard.
I think you will see that a good portion of it is on my face. So I am more of a neckbeard/facebeard hybrid.
And I think you also mentioned something about losing weight. I offer you this screen capture from my online health profile.
Does that say I’ve lost 18 pounds in the past 2 months? I think it might.
I’d like to thank you. Never before have I had the opportunity to brag about myself this much without looking like an egomaniac. Yes, I might have a fake disease that makes me feel crumby. And sometimes it prevents me from using a lot of the skills I have worked hard to master… but I’m proud of what I have learned. I think I have shown people that if you can’t go to school for whatever reason, you can still learn on your own and be pretty kickass at whatever you are passionate at.
And when you read the comments of this post and hear all of the people saying what a jerk you are… I have a feeling you will literally be a sad individual.
