I have a lot to catch you up on so today will be a multiple posts kind of day. It’s been quite the week. Grab a drink & let’s get started:
Today is Friday the 13th. I guess it’s supposed to be an ominous day for the superstitious, but for me? I dig it. It’s my favorite day of the week with my favorite number. I do think it’s funny how it’s associated with the macabre when it’s just a day of the week. 🙂
But is that why I like it so much?
I’m not death-obsessed by any means. I don’t even do Halloween, but that’s probably more because I hate gore & horror. I have times where I feel suicidal (as you know) but that’s more of a release from pain versus “death is the shiiiiiit!” 😉 I was never into goth & I’m generally a positive person. My interest in it is purely scientific.
I am fascinated with different aspects of death. I’ve played with the idea of going back to school to become a medical examiner. That’s honestly my favorite part of CSI. 🙂 What’s held me back is the fact that I would have to work on bodies of children & that I can’t handle. I get fiercely vengeful when it comes to children & I know I wouldn’t cope well nor would stay within the letter of the law.
One of my bucket lists items is to visit the Body Farm in Texas. I think that would be badass. To see what the body does under different conditions is absolutely intriguing to me. To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m allowed to visit since I’m not a student but maybe I can shadow a local coroner for a day or something. OMG what if I could make the Y-incision? That would be so cool! 🙂
Ahhh! Love it!
