Welcome to Opticynicism!!

I write because I enjoy it and I love to make people laugh.  Not all my posts are funny, but most are and I hope you enjoy every one of them.  I am a Veteran of the US Marine Corps and I support and welcome all veterans.  Browse around the home page and enjoy what you see, or get right to the writing and go STRAIGHT TO THE BLOG!!


All About Me


Opticynicism didn’t just happen one day.  There is a whole life of shit that happened to get where I am now.  Click the pic to find out a little more about me.  Yes, I am a nerd, and Denise knows that I like Bernadette better than Penny.  This was my birthday present!

Spotify has been paying attention to what I have been listening to. This is the list they have put together that they think I would like. Meh.

About a year ago, I got the opportunity to turn the tables on my psychologist.  It was pretty interesting and fun to do.  Check out the post, I Got to Shrink My Shrink.

Take Care of your Veterans

tapslogoThe Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) offers compassionate care to all those grieving the death of a loved one serving in our Armed Forces. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.

A Drill Instructor from my Company at Parris Island took his own life not long after I had graduated from boot camp.  He was not my Drill Instructor, but I had many interactions with him during my training.  He was a dedicated Marine.  His wife, rather than suffer quietly, took it upon herself to help other family members of veterans that have chosen this path as a way out.  TAPS is one of those efforts.  Please help the veteran who suffers by reaching out, and if you are a family member of a veteran who does or did need help, reach out to this program for support.
