Before you’re ready to play their little games, they warn you repeatedly that the games are designed to be difficult. They’re right, but they give you tiny crumbs of success at the beginning before they start clamping down, and then when you’ve reached a nadir of despair, you get to move to a new game and have a bit of success before the nightmare begins again.
Do it for science. Hell, something may come of this in time to help you.
The other thing i do to try to keep my mind alive is take pics. Finally got a halfway decent shot of Mona Caron’s new murals on 14th Street, and yes, i coulda cropped the pic but do that rarely since it feels like cheating.
