Hope everyone is having a happy and safe Fourth of July. Currently just hanging out in the backyard and having a BBQ, which is definitely nice and relaxing.

Morning started out weird with some more dreams of living in Roswell, New Mexico and gotta say dreaming about how weird high school was isn't exactly my ideal way to start up a Saturday/Holiday. Although doing an interpretive dance to protest Sarah Palin during homecoming senior year definitely feels patriotic. But at least it's now July and I'm excited to get started figuring out what to do my birthday!

One of the things I’ve always loved about the 4th of July is how into it my father has always been. Part of it was for me, but considering my parents aren’t originally from here, my father has always made it a point for us to go wherever there were fireworks and always had a bbq and all of that. It’s one of the many things I’ve always loved about my dad and the 4th.

And now that I’m an adult, it’s no different. I’m pretty sure I ate way too much this afternoon and we’re going out to watch fireworks later.

I'm not sure how I feel about fireworks this year. I think I want to go somewhere quiet, away from the noise.

With how bad the fireworks have been lately, I spent the last week of June at our cabin and probably won't be coming back for another week at least.

My dreams weren't even a war but they had the same effect.

I think it's hilarious that there is apparently a petition to have Confederate statues in New Orleans replaced with statues of Britney Spears. Could you imagine if that actually happened? That would be the funniest thing ever and considering the way this year has been, I wouldn't be surprised at all.

Alright. With all the shit this network brings us I figure I could at least take car troubles off everyone's worries. If you bring your car in to Out Of This World Mechanics and mention this network I'll give you a discount.

I've been considering taking students if anyone is looking for self defense classes. One on one's for now, potential for groups if wanted..but starting small perhaps is good.

The new Lady Gaga album, Chromatica, is GREAT! I had way too much fun listening to it a couple times while in the back room helping my mom sort things for the shop. It really makes me want to get out to the club and start dancing. I'm just excited about her getting back to dancefloor pop music.

So dream me also grew up in a circus. A literal traveling circus called Haly's Circus. My dreams seem to be all over the place as far as order goes, but whatever. I can piece it together I think..

Okay, wow. I had a really intense dream last night. It was almost a memory, but some of the details were wrong. It was...I don't even know. Unpleasant. I feel weird, now. Like I want to go back to bed, but I don't want to dream anymore. I'm sure it's just because of everything going on, but really.

So, this is where all the cool kids hang out these days, huh? I can't believe I let Leroy talk me into making one of these things. So, hi? I guess. My name is Nova, and I'll be starting at USC in the fall.

Honestly, this whole 'online journal' thing seems a bit like a waste of time. Why do you guys do it?

When I left California ten years ago, I went as far as I could get with the thought to never look back. I started a new life in New York, and it was a good life. It's my life, you know?

I never intended to come back to California. But now that I'm here, I'm thinking about staying. Why the hell would I do that? My childhood was miserable, there's so few good memories here for me.

I came back for my mother's funeral. I didn't come back to stay. But there's something...holding me here. I can't rally explain it even though I feel it. It's like I've already forgotten my life in New York.

So, yeah. Hi. I'm Alex. And I'm staying.

Normally, I'd think learning a language from dreams would be pretty cool. It's a new language and you learn it just from dreams, and that's pretty cool.

You know what's less cool? A language no one else will speak.

So I just got to the point in my dreams where I've obtained the actual autopsy on Rosa and the evidence is all pointing to Max given that it was his glowing handprint on Liz's chest when we reunited at the Wild Pony and that same mark is on Rosa's face.

I don't know if that's where Liz is in the dreams so not sure if I should share or keep this to myself?

Just when I thought things couldn't possibly get any weirder.

Woke up basically kissing the ceiling this morning, took about an hour for me to get back down, and now? Well, now I've frozen the door shut just by breathing on it. What the fuck is going on?

I'll also need a new desk because I definitely broke that in two.

I had wondered why a lot of you seemed to be so invested in your dreams, but I think I've figured it out. I'm generally pretty good at remembering my dreams, but this one felt more like a memory than anything else. It wasn't anything special, just a conversation with my mother which I'm sure I must have had here when I was a kid too, except we were living in Roswell, New Mexico (yes, that Roswell).

It was actually really nice. I miss having conversations like that with her.

As a veteran who fought in Afghanistan, anyone who says they can end the war there in ten days is completely ignorant of the realities of war. War is not simple by any stretch of the imagination. It's hell. Complicated, horrifying hell no matter how you look at it.

I am getting super annoyed with spam bots blowing my phone up. No matter how many numbers I block, there's still just as many each day as there was the last. Part of me wants to just keep my phone on silent to avoid them, but what if it's my parents, my boss, Alice, people I actually want to talk to?

And why do they have to blow my phone up when I'm trying to sleep? I have a month left of vacation before I go back to working towards two degrees. I'm not blowing your phones up in the middle of...



...You know what, is anyone here good at hacking? So we could figure out who owns these spam bots and give them the same wakeup calls?

So I have a question for all the dreamers out there. Okay wow that sounded like some really crappy thing a radio DJ would say but hey go with the flow.

How do you generally deal with stuff from the dreams turning up here? Like actual things? Things that were not there before you went to sleep?

Well, I managed to survive bartending during Pride at Pandemonium for the first time. It was definitely something. It's very different to be on the bar side of things instead of someone in the crowd celebrating. Everyone was in a great mood at least, only a couple bad seeds that Security swooped in for. Hope everyone who celebrated this weekend had a great time!

I'm definitely dragging my feet today, so hopefully the higher ups at my internship won't notice if I take a quick snooze in a dark alcove.

So, I need some advice from the hivemind. My friends are now on the network and obviously that means they're going to start Dreaming. Should I warn them in advance or just wait for them to start Dreaming? I'm not sure if one is better than the other and I'm not sure if they would believe me if I try to tell them what we Dream about.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This is a silly thing to post about, but I just can't with people these days. I love when people think that they can tell celebrities what they should and shouldn't be posting on their social media as if they're can't try to be like normal people too.

There's a dancer from Dancing with the Stars and she just got married. The other day she posted pictures from her bachelorette party and she had a penis shaped cake and half the comments were people saying how they thought she was more classy than that and how it was inappropriate cause she's a role model. People need to get a life.

And now I have to go pretend that I didn't just complain about people on social media.

I can tell you for nothing that being punched twice in the jaw in so many weeks is not fun.

Honestly don't know if the second one even counts when it happened in a dream though the reality of it suggests otherwise.

And reliving a break up? Super fun, by the way.

If anyone is looking for a new place to eat, you should check out Ortecho's Diner. It's a family owned and has some of the best milkshakes in the county and no, I'm totally not biased. Okay, I'm a little biased, but it's still true.

And if you've been there before then you probably agree with me about the milkshakes.

And for anyone who hasn't already guessed, yes, I'm plugging my parents' diner. I'm Liz Ortecho and have recently moved back after about ten years. It's kind of crazy how much has changed in that time.

Some days I think I could have been anything. An athlete, a guy who flips burgers, or a veterinary but no I had to go and pick the one vocation that means I spend pretty much my entire life in a hospital. That means my social life is pretty much dead in the water but that's what I get, I knew what I was signing up for, and yet I'm still complaining.

Go figure.

I mean I blame the fact I haven't slept in like... 16 hours for this rambling post of ramble.

Well, that was a bust. How hard is it to find somewhere decent to rent that has a parking space and doesn't have a dozen flights of stairs?

Three more viewings tomorrow, wish me luck.
