I'm going to be taking a break from school, so who wants to hire a very employable young adult? I can type around 93 wpm, am team player, have excellent communication skills, very good phone manner, can file like no one else, capable of using computers like a non-old person, and love to research. Also, I took self-defense courses at Snow's & Charming's School of Kicking Ass if that counts for anything.

Please hire me. I don't want to be a mooch.

Now what to do if it's both?

shes pack now

not sorry

alpha you start job yet? still want help?


That time has come, family of mine. MSF is sending me (us) to Syr Lebanon for a couple months. I'll have my phone and some network availability, but Chase'll probably end up with more free time than me since he's usually with the kids or doing jack-of-all-trades stuff. We're headed out this coming weekend.

Stay out of trouble, don't panic if you don't hear from me everyday and email me with general life updates? There's always teleporter options if there's an emergency, but it has to be an actual real emergency.

Make sure Liam stays up to date on his vaccines, and everyone get your damn flu shots.

[ filtered away from the raptors ]

So apparently, my girls are now human. There's no telling what that'll actually mean, but it'll be interesting. New world, new forms, and I still have no fucking idea what's going on entirely.

Either way, I'm Owen. I'm sorry for any shenanigans they get into. I'm working on it. Don't touch them or they'll try to eat you.

Also, anyone with a few extra pigs, let me know.

Okay, who wants to claim the raptors? Because I don't speak in screeches and they need to know my partner is not to be eaten.

I gave this lecture to my students earlier today, but given that we have plenty of students here on the network, I figured why not share?

It's nearing the end of the school year, and we're all sick of each other and want to go lay in the sun, but since exams are on the horizon, our suffering's going to continue. Sorry, life's not fair. However, here are some tips for studying that helped me when I was your age and hated smug bastards like myself. See, I'm not particularly smart. I do all right, but I leave the heavy thinking to my girlfriend. But you don't have to be smart to do fine in school if you have a few tricks up your sleeve, and no, I don't mean writing the answers on your wrist and then asking to go to the bathroom during a test; unless you have a goddamn doctor's note you're going to hold that, sir or ma'am.

But yeah, tricks. Tricks like:

  • Sleep. Not like, taking a nap forever to put off actually reading the chapter, but get at least seven hours of sleep before a big test. Your brain remembers shit better after a good rest because biology; I don't know why because I'm not a science nerd, but I swear it works.

  • Make up a rhyme to remember stuff. If you're really fucked, put it to music. Your brain is wired to remember words when they're attached to a beat, and to this day the only reason I remember how the hell the Spanish-American war got started is because I memorized "The Maine exploded and was damp / Cubans were sent to concentration camps / They were starving as they hung around there / but in the US, sympathy went spare / They had guns, they had men, they had knives that cut / and in hardly any time, we kicked Spanish butt". I mean, it's pretty terrible to rhyme shit around concentration camps, but I got a solid B on that essay, and I still remember it to this day, so whatever. You do you. Just don't sing it out loud because that's really terrible and offensive.

  • Flashcards are a classic not because flashcards are actually magic, but because you had to write them. Writing makes an extra area of your brain work, so you're more likely to remember whatever you write than if you just stick to reading it. Typing doesn't work the same way, so sorry - gonna have to be a caveman and write.

  • If you don't know an answer to an exam question, skip it for now. The teacher may have included information later on in the test that helps jog your memory. Remember, there's nothing wrong with partial credit, so just try to write something. Also, don't be like me and draw dinosaurs that look like your history teacher instead of answering questions. That shit got real.

  • Study with a friend, and by "study" I don't mean "make out really hard on top of a textbook". Osmosis only works in chemistry class. Probably.

so many regrets I think I've come down with the flu. If anyone needs me, I'll be in bed.

Help. I got followed home.

If you've never seen a dinosaur and a dog cuddle, you're missing out.

HPD, the gift basket of awesome coffee and chocolates are from me, don't let Parrish steal it all. But thank you guys for the appropriate "I'm from the future, here's my credentials" paperwork. And for not assuming I made everything up.... Since I only made up about 20%!

Now I have to work on my "trust me, I'm awesome" speech for DWB/MSF. I don't want to expend my dinosaur threats too early.

Family - you're all getting flu shots today.

Haha lame, portal. Time travel is only cool when you go FORWARD in time. But heyyy, waste not, want not.

Where all the hot young dads at?

(Friendly PSA: B&B owners are NOT hot. For many scientific reasons! For example, there's EW? And also, ewwww. Don't fall victim to the lies. Educate yourself!)

I'm used to getting pulled back to Hawaii for food and family squabbles, but not literally getting pulled back in time. Must be a major Mad Hook fight.
