Maybe I'm over analyzing this, but we are ten days into 2017 and Valentine's Day is over a month away. But everywhere I look there are red and pink decorations, sales on chocolate, teddy bears, and all the other cliche stuff that girls (and guys, I suppose) are meant to expect as a present. People always talk about how much pressure there is to have a good time at Christmas, but there is just as much pressure to find someone this time of year to avoid being single and feeling left out.

It's ridiculous.

Hard to believe that it's nearly 2017. I'm not sure where the year went.

I hope you all had a wonderful one, enjoy tonight and here's to a wonderful 2017!

As though this week was not bad enough with the election results, I was so wonderfully disowned by my parents last night. I believe I will just sleep this weekend away. After that, then I need to start looking for a job. And making my stay here more permanent and not prone to being deported when my student visa expires.

So I think I’ve finally gotten over the most awkward way ever for my parents to find out I’ve gotten really serious with the guy I’m dating. They heard him in the kitchen making breakfast for us when they called to wish me a late happy birthday, and wanted to know why he was there so early and sounding so happy. I don’t think they liked hearing he was there so early because he’d spent the night. Which was also probably why he sounded so happy but I didn’t tell them that part. I think they might be willing to actually talk to me instead of shouting in about another week.

As much as I try not to think about it I can't help it.

I think Halloween will forever be scarred in my mind as the day that I die in my dreams. It's a horrible thing to mar a holiday I truly enjoy, but such is life.

The small bright point is I can totally dress up in my school robes and carry around my wand like it's a regular day.

Lily isn't really into the traditional "girl" stuff, and she really never has been. Sure, she likes dolls and princesses well enough, but she's always gravitated to other characters that most people would say are for boys.

I've encouraged her to love what she loves and not worry about any of that, so when she asked to be Han Solo for Halloween I went out and bought her all the stuff that she would need. And last week when she asked if Yoshi could come trick or treating as her Chewbacca I got online and ordered a bandolier for the dog.

She's been so excited to wear her costume to school, so when I picked her up this afternoon as she was in tears I asked what happened.

Some kids made fun of her, called her names, questioned her sexuality (she's six), and have convinced my sassy, amazing, spirited daughter that she is weird and that she shouldn't go out Monday with the other neighborhood kids because they will also make fun of her.

I'm appalled, angry, and heartbroken all at once.

Halloween. Help! I don't know what I'm going to do. I mean I have to do something. I was thinking of dressing up as the Lady of the Lake but I'm not completely sold on this idea.

I cannot wait to start dreaming myself. I am highly curious about the lives that I have lived in the past. I am assuming that this is the sort of thing these dreams are or at least it makes the most sense to me.

For now though I have school work to complete.

Hello, beautiful America. I've learned that this, apparently, is the place to go for all newcomers to the area. I am very new. My name is Hernando, I've just moved here because apparently I'm going to be a writer. If you must know a bit about me, I like cardigans, and very sincerely love to walk on the beach, and I will never say no to champagne.

Now, you must tell me, where are the best theaters, the best art galleries, the best bookstores, and the best restaurants?

Holy. Shit.

I had a Dream that my cousin and I performed some sort of ritual where I ate a worm that had fed on the blood of a dead girl. My cousin tied me to a chair. Seconds later I channeled the spirit of that dead girl and told my cousin about the last few minutes of her life. My cousin is trying to solve her murder, you see. We think something called a vargulf is responsible.

Anyway, I woke up from that Dream and threw up. It's always a treat when your Dreams make you puke.

I got the news today! I will be promoted to the corps de ballet! This is fantastic news because it means I will be able to audition for the winter production of Swan Lake. I've never danced in Swan Lake before! Wow. I can't believe this is real. I'm going to be dancing with a real ballet company. What a rush!

It's official. I've declared education on top of my history major. So there goes my long sought freedom after this year, and hello another two years of school before I get to be the one inflicting this sorrow on the masses.

Fat-shaming is never okay. But it's especially not okay in a video game like Pokemon Go. I decided to play while I was walking Whit at the park and came across a nidoran, cute little bunny unicorn and I didn't even think anything about catching a second one because hey experience points right? Anyway! When the information came up about her she was marked XL. She was maybe 1 kg bigger than my other one and there was nothing on the first one about being large or anything like that. Not cool Pokemon Go. Not cool.

Willows whiten, aspens quiver,
Little breezes dusk and shiver
Through the wave that runs forever
By the island in the river
Flowing down to Camelot.
Four gray walls, and four gray towers,
Overlook a space of flowers,
And the silent isle embowers,
The Lady of Shalott.

By the margin, willow-veiled,
Slide the heavy barges trailed
By slow horses; and unhailed
The shallop flitteth silken-sailed
Skimming down to Camelot:
But who hath seen her wave her hand?
Or at the casement seen her stand?
Or is she known in all the land,
The Lady of Shalott?


I absolutely love that poem. It's only the beginning of it but it's always such a joy to read. Does anyone have favorite poems that they would recommend? I'm trying my hand at writing some myself. I might post them at some point.

Hey guys! I'm Belle, and I'm new to the network. I heard all the cool kids hang out here, so I figured I'd check it out.

Also, I'm armed with pirate jokes. So beware.

The unfortunate thing about starting a new job is that when you have the itch to travel, as I currently do, you can't go anywhere.

It's just as well, Lily starts school soon so it's certainly not the best time to jet off to Europe. But Paris would be wonderful this time of year.

Wednesday Don Quixote starts its run! I'm getting closer to finding out how true those rumors about me are. Exciting, isn't it? My career depends on whether they're true or not. Of course, even if they don't mean to add me to the corps, I'll still be an apprentice and someday potentially be in the corps, so there's a silver lining no matter what.
