    literally 90 minutes of “no, wait … THIS is the best song.”

    “all eyes on me” in theaters was unreal.

    My final full day. If my entire two-week stay here was spent marveling at why I was here, and how I got here, then my final day was spent just appreciating that I was here. I was actually discharged a day earlier than I thought, so when they told me I was leaving "tomorrow" instead of "two days from now", my first emotion was sadness. Which is insane. Because I was terrified to come here.

    The day was spent…

    One of the new intakes was the specific type of faux intellectual hipster that I can't stand. At lunch one day, I was talking to my roommate about the Stanford Prison Experiment and hipster sat down at our table and said "Did you know that experiment was proven to be scientifically inaccurate?" and I said "How's that?" and he said "Google it" and walked away.

    The next day we were sitting on the back patio and someone started spraying…

    Paint Man came back from the hospital and within minutes was harassing people again, this time recruiting the patient he initially fought with as a little minion to report to him if people were bad-mouthing him when he was gone. All of the patients and most of the staff were annoyed to see him back.

    My roommate, a retired paramedic and proud gun owner, was in his element. He walked me through his multi-pronged plan of attack, telling me,…

    It was the woman who reminds me of my grandmother's final night. Some people said a few words and well-wishes at the end of the day wrap up group.

    I caught her on the back patio that night and told her that I was sad she was leaving and hearing her number (how she felt on a scale of 1-10) go up everyday made me happy. She said that was sweet and laid down on a picnic bench and looked at the stars.

    This movie is not unlike Brendan Fraser's "The Mummy"™

    A small group of patients sort of naturally started a little movie night group. I learned that asking the question "Wait a minute, there are how many Conjuring movies?" is a really great ice breaker.

    I left during the opening scene to sit outside. One of the new patients was in the middle of a week-long manic episode and wrote me a rap, folded it, and wrote "keep your head up" on the outside. Two days later she tried to hijack the transportation van and drive everyone to Las Vegas to gamble. I never saw her again.

    We replaced the strings on the only guitar and sat outside and took turns playing songs and swapping musical artists. My roommate leaned over to me and said "The only thing missing is a campfire".

    I went inside in time to catch the last 20 minutes of The Conjuring 2. One of the jump scares made the woman who arrived at the same time as me scream and almost fall off the couch. We all laughed and I thought…

    There was a fight in the group room (where the big TV is) over paint. One of the older patients dumped bottles of paint all over the counter and made a huge mess that the staff had to clean up. He came back in and got upset when he saw that they threw his painting away and started yelling and cursing at the female staff, prompting another patient to tell him to watch how he talks to women. Paint…
