Connor is your average, uninspiring man in his early twenties, who has been working as a repairman in a small repair shop, that doesn't has that much work going on. Interestingly enough, while being quite lackluster in theoretical field, he is quite talanted in practical work, even though he is quite young.

Connor is an average uninspiring repairman in his early twenties. Despite the fact that he, perhaps, never will be important, he decided that, perhaps, dreaming is not harmful, but it is harmful to not dream. And so he dreamed, that he will leave a mark in history, by inventing something that, if not groundbreaking, would still be an important enough to be remembered.

Limping Limb

- Restock medkit
- Look up first aid
- Look up giant centipedes
- Get a pocket knife

My knee almost doesn't hurts now, and I can actually walk without limping. I did, however, decided to inspect my medkit I have in my house. Inspection revealed that I don't have anything to handle serious injuries. I don't think some pills, including some expired ones and even one pack of unlabeled pills, as well as some bandages can count as decent medkit. Most of it went straight to the garbage, and restock of the medkit took some time and funds, just like the following refreshment on my first aid knowledge, but now if I ever get a serious injury - again - I can somewhat confidently say that I'll be alright.

Other thing I decided to do was investigate into giant centipede species, and I haven't found anything about it. Either the centipedes ate everyone who tried to investigate them, or no one found them until now. I doubt both are the case, because then people would still catch on, so there is likely more going on than meets the eye. I honestly don't want to think about it, because the more I think, the more ridiculous ideas come to my mind, like a doomsday cult worshipping those giant centipedes as deities or something.

It did spiraled out of my control into research into other insect and animal species. Thank God for modern technology and the ability to watch documentaries on animals from home, and not having to do the research myself, be it out in the open field or in the library.

Lastly, I got a pocket knife. Two pocket knives, even, one of which I keep near my bed at all times, and the other stays with my bag or in my pockets. This is completely normal behavior, and I don't care if anyone says otherwise - I'll listen to their opinion only when they will get bitten by a giant poisonous centipede.
