Alright, so I guess I should introduce myself and stop lurking. I'm Jesus and before you ask, no, I can't turn water into wine or walk on water. It's just what my friends call me and I like it. I'm a stuntman and I'll also be teaching a self defense class at the Wayne Gym. So, if anyone is interested, come by.

Okay, so I saw this earlier today and thought it'd be a funny ice breaker. So, google 'Florida man' and your birthday to see which Florida man you are. Mine is, Florida man charged with exposure at Pensacola strip club.

It’s never a good thing to come back to your building from classes to find a fire truck sitting outside and waiting to be given the clear to go back inside. Even worse when you find out that they were on your floor and in your hall.

Turns out one of my hallmates thought it would be a good idea to make instant mac and cheese without reading the directions, so when she put it in the microwave? She put it in completely dry. No water, no milk, nothing. And unlike the kind you do on a stove? The sauce in the microwave ones is powder. ...Powder in general is highly flammable. So it caught fire, which made the microwave catch fire, which made the microwave blow up.

It didn’t spread so I’m safe. But the whole building smells like burned pasta and it’s really hard to do homework or get to sleep. What was she thinking?

I recently had a painting commissioned of Alexander and I to put in our office at Pandemonium. I know it sounds a little extra; having a painting done when we simply could have put up a regular picture or something, but I've always been a little extra so we did a painting.

Finally went and got my hair done again today. I've been so busy at the clinic and The Agency that I haven't had much free time, but I made the time today and it feels so good.

New hair and loving it )


Also, speaking of the clinic, for anyone who might not be aware, we specialize in helping fellow dreamers who may not want to go to a regular hospital with injuries or other things that would be difficult to explain.

So next stop on the world’s worst tour that I’m convinced my Dreams have turned into is my parents house. We don’t find anything inside but, just like here, they have a lab out back and in there is an entirely different story. They must be better scientists in the Dreams than they ever could be here because they had a working pair of x-ray goggles, hopefully the girls there never realize exactly how I figured out they worked, and a pair of gauntlets that look pretty steampunk. I’m not sure what they’re supposed to do but we’re taking them because it can’t possibly be anything good if left with our parents.

And maybe here I’ll be able to figure out what, if anything those gauntlets do, since I woke up to them and the goggles on the other side of my bed. Also if anybody is wondering what the inside of a raptor looks like? You really don’t want to know. Take my word for it.

You really do have to love those entitled customers don’t you? We had one come into the bookstore today, pissed as hell because her order had been shipped to the store and not her house - we’re a small store, not a chain, so all of our orders get shipped to us - and when we got it out of the back for her she discovered that one of the corners of the cover had been damaged. In an effort to make her happy, the manager offered her a discount. I was the only cashier on right then with a line almost to the back and this woman goes shoving past everyone, including the guest I was checking out right then, and demanded that I take care of her right then. And of course the manager on duty didn’t back me up when I told her that she’d have to wait at least until I finished the transaction she interrupted.

So I was told to back everything out and start over processing this woman’s discount and God bless the man who’d been at my register because he was so patient during this entire fiasco. I gave him my employee discount as an apology, but what the hell was with that woman?

First thing I always have to do in the morning is take Zelda out for a walk. She's a tiny dog, she has a tiny bladder to match. I am not making her wait while I shower, eat, or any of the rest of my morning routine. If I wake up early enough, I even take her out to the dog park, since we live in walking distance, and leave a text so Armin knows where we are when he wakes up.

So today I woke up early and took her down to the park so she could run off some energy and play with the other dogs, assuming anyone else was awake that early. There is a dad and his kid there. I didn't really think anything of it. Families bring their kids all the time with their dogs. I let Zelda off her leash and let her start barking up at squirrel that she's never going to be able to catch. When this kid starts making a running dash for my baby girl.

I get it, she's cute. But it is never a good idea to let your kid run at a strange dog. Zelda's super friendly, but not all dogs like kids. Not all dogs like PEOPLE, due to past owners. Your kid could have gotten bit if she was any other dog than her goofy, pug self.

I run up to get between them and try to be nice and tell the kid he needs to ask permission before going up to a dog he doesn't know. When he starts crying that I won't let him pet the puppy. That got the dad's attention. He came stomping over asking me who I thought I was and to leave his son and dog alone. Wait, what? Zelda, my Zelda that Mikasa and I picked out from the shelter together sophomore year of high school and who decided to sleep at the foot of my bed ever since, you are trying to claim that is your dog? He told the kid to take the dog and “let's go home”. The boy at least had sense enough to say they didn't have a dog. ...Why are you in a dog park, then? Seriously? Was your whole reason to come to try to STEAL A DOG? Who the fuck does that?

I quickly put her back on her leash while I cussed the guy out and threatened to call the cops when he changed his tune and offered $50. For my furry daughter. I don't think so, dude. He probably could legitimately ADOPT a dog for about that same amount, why are you trying to steal your kid a dog?

I do not understand some people. Does anyone know if you can get someone banned from a dog park? Because if they try this again when the park is busier and someone is distracted, they might get away with it or an innocent dog might get hurt. Or the kid, if they try with the wrong dog. Not his fault his dad is an asshole dognapper.

I was hired recently by a man who wants me to look into his daughter's personal life, specifically whether or not she's dating the right sort of people, so that he can decide whether or not to keep her in his will. At $150/hour plus all inured expenses paid, it was just too good to pass up.

I'll be following a lead from a very reliable source that she's very interested in volunteering, so I guess I'll have to check out places like Habitat for Humanity and the soup kitchen. Anyone else have any other suggestions?

This seems like it's going to be a very long, complicated case, and I just don't know if I can't handle it myself. How'd you like to be hired on as a consultant?

I swear to Christ, these fucking dreams are gonna be the death of me. My family is dead, and the ones alive, which had been my older sister (who was killed) and uncle who was in a vegetated state, turns out in the end that my uncle was lying about his condition, well not lying but he had been healing himself for the past ten years. Turns out he killed my sister to become the Alpha, so he's the reason for all this shit.

He's the reason the hunters came to Beacon Hills, but at the end of the dreams, I killed him... And became the new Alpha. Not sure how I feel about that.

It seems silly, but things like this discovery are really exciting, when it comes to seeing how people actually lived in the past.

When you're studying ruined cities it's easy to forget they were once vibrant societies. And that even the grandest city could one day be abandoned to time.

So I'm doing better in my dreams, besides this thing with an evil king wanting to destroy us all, but personally? Much better now that I'm away from my ex.

Rhysand and the others are training me to use my new Fae abilities, including the ability to shift wings and fly.

And I've never felt so determined to do something and so at home among these people and their gorgeous city. It's like I'm finally realizing how badly I was treated in the Spring Court.

And the flight practice is really nice.

But my ex and his people still want to get me back, and Lucien, one of those friends who'd looked the other way, tried to 'save' me from my kidnapper. Instead, I showed him what staring too long into the darkness looks like, which is what he wanted to see. Nothing like the darkness I've seen, the darkness in the way his master treated me, or the darkness of an Old God who weaves human hair and skin.

Maybe they'll leave me alone now. I kind of doubt it. But ... I find the darkness suits me. The night is dark, and filled with glittering stars and the people who I was told were evil are among the most good and kind I've ever met. And they showed me Starfall, the night every year where the sky is filled with beautiful falling stars.

I've found joy in the night after so much pain in a false paradise. And... my new family. We're all broken, we've all suffered, but we found each other. I miss them.

Training starts today, and I could definitely use people to make drinks for. You'll have to bear with me while I am still learning where everything is and the alcohol to mixer ratios.

Oh yeah, I'm working over at Pandemonium. Kinda excited about this...after my training, I'll be working the slower evenings (Monday & Tuesday), just to make some extra cash.

Also, it goes without saying, this message is for those who are of legal drinking age.

I got a lighter, a surfboard, and apparently, I joined the Navy. I didn't see the Navy thing coming, but I can say the dreams came full circle.

It's funny that it's been a long time since new things happened. I'm not surprised about some of it. It's always a murder mystery of some sort, always the ups and downs. My girlfriend doesn't trust me. We makeup and break up. If I don't do all the right things, we just don't work. I had totally forgotten about Dick though. He lives up to his name, but there are times that I wish the guy was really around. I need his sense of humor.

After all the stops and starts, and one more mystery - the girl and I end up together. I flew into the sunset and back to finish up my tour in the Navy.

Thank me for this cliff notes version.

Sooooooo... Dreams.

Usually, I get the same ones, but they have advanced a bit, and as I thought, I'm up in the sky alone. I lost my bothers in the sea, although it looks like they lived. Now it's just me and I'm not sure how much gas I have, so what do I do? I head my ass into a dogfight to get rid of the enemy so all the boys stuck on the beach can get away in the boats. I haven't seen the entire beach, but I'm staying out at sea. Looks like the ocean and I will meet soon.

I did find this tool set on my coffee table this morning. I have had to make some repairs on planes from time to time. It makes me wonder what I'm going to be doing. Maybe I do get to land after all, but I'm fixing something. I'd be a little happier if they were really useful, but they are from the 1940's and technology isn't quite the same. They also look like they are pretty beat up, but I'm cleaning them.

Credentials:
- BS in Aeronautics Engineering
- Former F-16 pilot
- Machine whisperer
- Aspiring cyborg
- "Top Gun" aficionado
- Space Jesus/Satan, depending on your point of view
- A fan of the place between the ground and outer space (I like outer space, too)
- Strong dislike of particulates (they ruin your engineering)

Sooo, if anyone has any leads, hit me up.

Initially I had not thought there was anything odd happening when my charity was getting more people coming to us for assistance. However, after talking with a few women that have come to us, I find out a few shelters have closed recently because of buildings being bought. I don't like the sound of shelters closing down, but I will not turn anyone away that comes to us. It just means more work for us.

Some time ago, I was gifted by my dreams a beautiful porcelain vase which I had purchased in China for my father, who collected such things. As he has the same inclinations here, I thought that I would send it to him as a surprise gift. It's not every day when one receives such an exquisitely made piece of Chinese porcelain.

Today I received his thank you note in the mail. I suppose a phone call, or even a proper letter, was too much to hope for. It seems as though he was rather pleased with it, which I am glad for. My mother let me know that he has it displayed among the rest of his collection; I hope that I will be able to see for myself sometime soon.

Last night, D managed to get himself kidnapped by fucking Peruvian terrorists. I went to save his skinny ass and somehow ended up caught up in whatever his grandfather got him into, which was, apparently, a trip to Lake Titticaca (hahaha Titicaca) to look for some golden city called El Dorado or something. We didn't find any gold, but we did find a whole bunch of golden, extinct fish.

How the fuck we didn't get murdered after that I'll never guess at. And I can't figure out what the hell D's family had to do with any of that.

I'm also not entirely sure how I'm going to explain away these handcuff wounds on my wrists when I go to work tomorrow.


In not dream related news, Chris has apparently been feeding this stray cat every day after school and today she decided to follow him home and won't fucking leave. I don't have the time or the patience to take care of this mangy fleabag but Chris nearly started crying when I told him he couldn't keep her so I guess we're stuck with her. For now at least.

In all the excitement of getting off my...house arrest I forgot to check in on here for the last few weeks. I've been out there actually getting to enjoy the beach right behind my house and going to the grocery store. Just all the little errands and things that I couldn't do for the past year. I still can't do much during the day but that's what all night markets are for. I never thought I'd actually be grateful to Amelie for something in the Dreams.

Well… it’s always fun to find out that everyone thinks there’s something wrong with me in my Dreams. A glass broke out of nowhere while Margo and I were sitting in the common room of the Cottage, so of course everyone starts worrying, and they have to bring the Professor to look at me. She gives me a clean bill of health but in a surprising twist - she thinks something is going on with Margo’s life force being drained because a wine glass shatters when set next to her. They want to know if she’s been involved in any sort of unprotected rituals lately, and it seems that she has.

I’m stoned out of my mind but decide to go with her, anyway, to talk to the guy she suspects. When we get there we find that he’s made a golem of her, a Margolem. Who honestly is a lot of fun to do drugs with in the Dreams. Margo says she wants to destroy her, so we take her back to Brakebills with us and I end up kissing the Margolem, and that’s when I find out that she changed her mind about destroying it because Margo walks in the room. I think the Professor is wrong about me though - there’s something wrong with me.

Well I think I just disproved my own theory that if I stayed busy enough I wouldn’t have any dreams this semester at school. I finally found out what the key in my dreams opens up! There was a little curtain off to one side of the hall, and inside is this little tiny door- maybe a foot tall- and the key fits it! I open it up and there’s this really beautiful garden on the other side and I lay there looking at it for a while, wishing that I could get in there but my head won’t even fit through the door.

I finally quit laying on the floor, wishing, and go back to the table I found the key on and now there’s a bottle that has a label that says Drink Me on it! I know it wasn’t there when I first got the key, but it is now and it’s not labeled poison, so I drink it and it tastes pretty good. And after a minute makes me shrink down to the right size to fit through the door but just my dreamluck - I locked the door when I went back to the table and left the key on top of it, and can’t reach it anymore. And no matter how many times I try to climb that table I keep slipping back down to the floor and I finally just give up and start to cry.

And that’s when I woke up here. And found that same bottle on my pillow next to me. A part of me really wants to take a sip and see if it will make me shrink here like it did in the drams but the rest of me is saying “Don’t be stupid Alice. You have no way of reversing the shrinking and can’t take care of Kurt if you’re only ten inches tall! And you definitely can’t go to classes or auditions if you can’t be seen!”

People can say whatever they like about China - but they know what people want. They built a 250 acre solar farm, which is pretty cool on it’s own because that’s a lot of solar energy instead of fossil fuels. But they went one step further according to the article I read - they built it in the shape of a giant panda. And everyone loves pandas. It’s a fact. And not only did they build one - they have plans to build two more massive solar farms that are shaped like pandas.

Show up any time starting after 5 pm Friday and stay for as long as you want. Or until I have to throw everyone out Monday to get ready for a meeting with a director at my house. They better be offering me the part or I will end up in trouble that I'm fairly certain an entire law firm and Amycus couldn't get me out of and cover up

No sooner am I made Lord of the Sith, than Darth Thanaton of the Dark Council wants me dead because he sees my views as a threat. He very nearly succeeds by having a lacky lay a trap, except my people manage to get me out. In need of more power if I've a chance to survive, let alone make change in the Empire, I learn of a ritual that would make me strong enough to take this man on and defeat him. It's called "Force Walking" and involves communing with the ghosts of long dead Sith Lords, and in fact binding their restless ghosts to the living in order to harness their power.

This will surely go well.

In other news, I have my first apprentice! A Togruta padawan named Ashara Zavros. A former Jedi! How marvelous.

Just when I think I'm in the clear, that maybe the dreams have stopped, they prove me wrong. I don't know how much more of this I can take. Waking up screaming the way I did... That's not normal...

Private to Mitch

I'm so sorry about last night.

There are definitely times when I am relieved I'm not on social media like Twitter all that much and that I'm not a well known theatre name outside of Orange County. Because the entitlement you see in people is absurd. Yes, I understand the planning it can take to get to New York to see a show on Broadway. Yes, I understand wanting to see a performer you really like or that 'big name' and finding out they aren't performing that day can be disappointing. But that gives you no right to then harass them on Twitter for daring not to be at the performance. Actors are people, and this is live theatre, which means that life happens and you are not entitled to an explanation of illness or family emergency. Get a refund if you're that annoyed (even if that's ridiculous as well because of the very nature of theatre and it's not just one person and you never know who you might discover in an understudy) but don't attack people on Twitter or social media and expect not to get called out.

Dieu.

Well that's one mystery solved. For the past few months, a number of my former students would stop by the diner and just give me some type of fruit. No reason given, nothing. Just told not to worry about it. I go along with it because well, fruit can be expensive so I'm not about to turn down free fruit. Even if it was getting weirder. Talk of offerings. A meme as an explanation.... And I mean, it's Orange County so there's always something weird going on.

And now I finally have an answer. No weird Orange County shenanigans this time. No. It turns out it was because of a game of 'Truth or Dare.' No idea who came up with the dare but kudos to them for the ingenuity.

Those dreams you guys talk about…do you just know when you start having them? Because I think I’ve had a couple the last few nights.

My mom was pretty upset at me for bailing on her so soon after dad died, but we've been having dinner together pretty often since I managed to get my head on straight. We've been talking a lot, and I don't think she's handling living in that huge house by herself very well.

So, I've decided to move back home. At least for a little while. Me and my mom were never close growing up, but I think that'll change now that Dad's not around. I don't want to give up my apartment, especially since I'm so close to owning it outright now. Does anyone want to sublet it for cheap? Decent location, fully furnished.
