[SOLVED] Memory Gaps: A Chronology

Days go by and still I think of you...


THIS HAS BEEN SOLVED. ANSWER IN COMMENTS. PROCEED BELOW MAIN TEXT AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU STILL WANT TO PLAY FOR FUN


Wow. It has been nearly a year and a half since I last wrote. A lot going on from a new job, to a new house, to a covid marriage re-ceremony, but I won't bore you. Yes, I still work on some of these maddening puzzles in the quiet depths of my mind and/or the back alleys of puzzledom. Long standing enigmas only. God forbid we actually take on a puzzle that can be solved.


Anyway, that brings me to what's below. Fenix started releasing monthly puzzles which sounded fun. After dropping the ball last month, Woodford covered for me. But I did a classic High-School-Cram-Job and got this one in on time.


This is a concept I've had for a long time. A puzzle presented as enigmatic journal entries of a narrator with some sort of memory loss. I wanted to make a larger scope puzzle with a bigger reveal, but I lost steam, so here it is. I wasn't able to weave in all the components I wanted, and lord knows I'm not a writer, but take it for what it's worth and I think you'll have an alright time.


Photos followed by a PDF. I'm not gonna tell you how to take your puzzles.

EDIT 08-01-23:

I realized 'find the password' was a little misleading. The password is not directly presented in the story or puzzle(s) there-in. Updated lingo related to figuring out the password.


EDIT 09-01-23:

First official 'hint' is in the comments if you're feeling stuck. I also replied to ATdreamer2112 on Aug 21. What I wrote in that reply could be read as two subtle hints.

Prize TBD. A gift card probably.

UPDATE: This bad boy has been solved. Congrats Dan Aarhus on the solution and thanks for providing the most concise and accurate write-up I ever did see. [below]

Honorable mention goest to Chad Porta for first to solve with some gentle nudges. (I'm not sure he would have needed them, but they happened, so here we are!)

2025 Sep I’ve been waiting since June of this year. That’s 3 months.

Feeling stuck? Here's some guidance: This puzzle has two separate parts that work together to provide an answer. It also has some “mini games” to help solve those parts. Pay attention to what more overt directions might exist in disguise as well.

I’m feeling left out. I’d like to buy a vowel, Pat.

First of all, congratulations on all your exciting new life accomplishments! With 10 days left in the month, I figured it was probably time for me to girl-power up and admit openly to you, myself, and everyone else on earth who can read this that I'm probably not going to figure this one out. It's not for lack of trying, I think I'm just terrible at puzzles (and quite possibly satire too)! That's okay though, I'm still having fun. I love the idea of whatever style this puzzle is and I'm intrigued by the writing. I hope you're working up the walkthrough now because I'm sure you've already been warned, I'll come asking for it at the end of the…

First off, my first reply was two subtle hints in one 😅. Posting official hint now!

EDIT 08-01-23:

I realized 'find the password' was misleading. The password is not directly presented in the story or puzzles there-in. Updated lingo related to figuring out the password. There is no impact to integrity of puzzle. Just making things a little clearer.
