I'm severely lacking in the social aspect of life. I don't like most people IRL so whenever I need to communicate, things don't go so well. So, I'm trying to voice what I think instead of just keeping it because it might be harsh.
So yeah, I fear that my nature will leave me all alone in the future. Unsure if that's actually a bad thing, tho.
So if you recall, my father died when I was young.
What did I do afterwards? Steal stuff, being an asshole to everyone and did "pranks". Pranks meaning evil stuff like ruining postal boxes. That lasted for a while and really, thinking back on it, that really shaped up how I am today. I'm the polar opposite of what I was (learning from mistakes, once again).
Really, that was a really shitty way to cope with death and now I'm generally good at managing my emotions (baring a few exceptions), at the risk of of being "cold" most of the time.
Considering my outlook on people, I hardly have (had) any heroes. I am boring like that. However, I do have some people that I look up to for different reasons. For exemple, Bill Gates. Somehow, the guy can become rich as hell and maintain a down to earth attitude. Even better, he's been donating tons of time and money to causes that don't really touch him directly. That guy is awesome.
Aside from that, not that many people I can speak of in that manner.
[Of all questions, I think this is the one that had me thinking the most... oops]
I'd probably be the calculator type. I mean, there are a lot of things to think about: supplies, weaponry, shelter. Supplies would be especially difficult to secure, as I think that's what most people would go for, first. Then, you need to think about the long term: how do you secure more food? I'd go loot a big garden or something.
Weaponry would be hard to come by where I live (Canada), so there would need to be some creativity there. I'd try to find someone who can figure that part out. Then there's shelter. That part really depends on how the zombie infection works: is it instantaneous or is it delayed. That's important to know. If it's instantaneous, you can create a fortified shelter with a decent amount of people (that leads to other problems, as human interactions are not all that great). If it's not, I'd be weary of getting in a closed space with potential zombies.
There's also the zombies themselves. What is their behavior? Are they attracted to a certain smell? Do they move towards noises? Both? Maybe they just move around randomly? Hell, maybe they are actually smart both need to move on instinct?
How sturdy are they? Can they be killed easily? What kind of "weapon" is needed? Maybe they're weak to something stupid, like water (lol).
But, really, I'd try to gather as much information as I possibly can (after gathering supplies). I'd try to figure out what the military is up to. If it goes in any way like movies or games, there might be a nuke headed my way. I'd rather not have that.
So yeah, as a survivor, I'd be the one who forms a detailed plan. If a group needs to be formed, I probably wouldn't be the leader (but some people I know have told me that I can get the point across pretty well with my short speeches, so who knows)
Been rather busy with work. Basically, in the last 2-3 months, I've been testing DAL B software (read: software failure = Hazardous). Been going pretty well. Now I've started working on the design of such software, which is a bit harder.
So I've been reading, and reading and reading and.....
