Monday is my birthday. I will be eighteen, though now physically, I do not know what I am. I dream I am eight hundred. My body looks to be twenty-something. Mentally, I am probably somewhere between all three of those numbers.

What havoc these dreams have brought.

OH DEAR GOD.

So I'm walking home from my last class, when I hear the barfy noise. You know, that weird gulpy-gaspy-gulpy noise that people when they're gonna barf make? Apparently this idiot was drinking in the middle of a freakin' Tuesday, and was walking right toward me.

Thank god I have good reflexes, I managed to jump out of the way and maybe shove this other guy in front of me. I should probably feel like an ass for getting some other guy barfed on, but life's too short to regret not being vomited on.

College. Can I be done now?

I don't understand that new reality/dating/whatever show, I Wanna Marry Harry. These woman don't realize that isn't actually Prince Harry? Has anyone else seen the commercials for this show? I just don't get it.

Something hinky's going on.

My cousin's married to this English guy named Pete Wisdom, and one just posted online. They don't even look alike, but they act enough alike where I've got goosebumps.

And I tried to call her, but Navi's not picking up her cell, and she always picks up her cell.

I'm freaking out.

Should I call the police or something?

Just a hint for those of limited brainpower: do not expect someone to agree with your execrable, homophobic, xenophobic opinion just because they are religious. I happen to be of the novel opinion that we are all God's children. Not just the straight Anglo-Saxon males.

I don't know what's going on, as I get the impression I'm not allowed to know. But I've asked the priest at the church I volunteer at - St. Paul's Episcopal in Tustin - to keep the church basement open, if anyone needs a place to rest or pray. I wish I could do more.

I'm not one for this sort of thing, but, at this point, I'll take anything to try and fight off the boredom. And as introductions seem customary, here's mine.

My name is Rollo. I'm a rugger, out for the better part of a year right now because of some knee problem. Normally I'd go back in, but apparently I need to wait for the doctor's absolute okay. So here I am, with nothing better to do than join a community network.

Anyone know a good place to get a drink or two?

I have had a plan for myself since I was a child. At first, I wanted to become a priest. That plan changed over time; I became disenchanted with the structure of the Church and the misguidedness it occasionally foists upon its followers. However, my faith in God is still strong, and I still want to spend my life serving Him in some way.

My dreams have been so strange, though, by comparison. I dream that I am a Christian amongst Vikings, a favored slave of the village jarl. Recently, I dreamt of being taken to a temple and fed mushrooms, and tempted by a beautiful young woman. I was asked to deny Christ, and I did it - but then they found the cross around my wrist. They were going to sacrifice me, but upon finding my continued faith in another God besides their own, they decided against it.

I'm confused. Am I meant to serve God? Are my dreams a story of a believer finding his faith strengthened in the face of adversity? Or are they a story of a coward? What does it mean that I love a woman, that I've thought about spending eternity with her? Where does it all fit?

I'm starting not to know who I am anymore, and I suppose, well, that frightens me.

I'm not a super romantic girl, but I must say this: I will marry and bear about five thousand children to the man that takes me to this event:

What's more romantic than that? It's allegedly in North Carolina, and I have no idea where that is. Someone's going to have to start driving. I'll pay for petrol.

It's funny, I've been out of the marines for a few years now but it sometimes I feel like I just stepped off the plane. Like I missed more than I should have some times, though I can't wholly complain about it. Mostly pop culture. You're unlikely to find me whining that I missed planking or Bieber's balls dropping or whatever Snakes on a Plane was supposed to be about. But there are other things, great things I'm told that I've missed out on. Can't say I thought about it at all when I was in the service, I was mostly concerned with not getting shot, which I clearly wasn't very good at. But I did miss some things, mostly bad fast food, real seasons, latin mass in an actual church. If I thought about it I could probably come up with a list but there would be no point. I can actually go out and have or experience everything I've not been able to do in the last... ten years. Only ten years or so, it sure felt like a lifetime while I was living it. Here's hoping the next ten are more peaceful, and that I don't miss anything I don't have to.

One of the things I've already been told not to miss is this network, so here I am, not missing it. I'm Michael, nice to meet you all.

I hate feeling helpless or vulnerable. I hate feeling at all, really - crying is just bollocks. And I hate feeling like there's nothing I can do to make this situation better, because I didn't mean to upset him, I really didn't.

Mum thinks I should go to therapy. I don't eat when I'm upset, and I've lost a half-stone already.

No one told me tumblr would eat my life when I signed on to it. I was supposed to go out tonight but instead I've been sitting here for the last two hours looking at the weirdest things while downing this bottle of '06 Chardonnay.

For instance Pornhub Comments On Stock Photos. It's so terrible, I mean really really terrible, but utterly hilarious. If you click the link be prepared to laugh and cringe at the same time.

So wait, you guys live here, and you're throwing Halloween parties? I'm going to hide in a basement with a week's worth of canned food and a can opener. Unless any of you know where there's an unused, well-kept bomb shelter. That'd work too.

Ray, you can come. I guess. We'll have to repopulate the world or something.

Sometimes I wonder how I exist in the dreams. How she keeps breathing.

Which is weird. I've been through arguably as many awful things, and I don't wonder why I wake up in the morning. I do it for my future, I do it because I love my beau, I do it because that's just what life is.

Does anyone else find these dreams just ... exhausting?

What does one do when family members announce an intention to visit you, and you simply don't want them to come?

My parents intend to fly all the way over from England, just because I told them I'd been in a little street accident. Best not to talk about things like blue monsters with them. They said they won't try to take me home, but, while I may honor them, I do not want them here.

Help?

Good day fellow teens.

I'm Wensleydale and I've recently and unexpectedly moved here from England. Seems to me that's the sort of decision a family would deliberate on a bit. However as I'm sure you, as fellow teens, already know, parents are quite useless.

I should note that I'm writing this message under duress. It's been suggested1 that I, "Make some friends, get a job, do some activities, lose your virginity2, something," and it's with this in mind that I introduce myself to you now. This is not, as you may have already supposed, a suggestion. They're withholding my car until I comply. Which I bought, mind, and had to sell before we moved, but there's no reason I shouldn't get a new one once I've passed the driving exam.

So I'm thinking that I'll play along for as long as necessary, and then after a year I'll have earned the ability to move back home or somewhere that is - on principle - not here.

If there's anyone reading this that's approximately aged 16-18 and would like to hang out3, or could tell me more about this place, or knows a business that is hiring, I would mildly appreciate your assistance.



①: by useless parents, mentioned above.
②: Don't concern yourselves with this bit.
③: or whatever.

How many people out there really play this Candy Crush game? I mean it seems like every place I look there is someone playing it... Though I have to admit I have been playing myself. It started out as a challenge between the dance girls to see who could get the farthest and I still find myself playing more than I care to admit. Not so much now that I have beat all the levels available in the app.

Yeah, I need to find something else to do with my time. I do have a few new photo shoots coming up thankfully.

Here I am, hanging out and checking my email 'cause that's what I do, when I get an email entitled CROTCH CARE 101: POST BABY which is basically just this long DOOMOGRAM about how my vagina and bladder are going to be devastated by BABY NAPALM when I have the little one.

So... It's been a long time coming that I tell the world this. It's hard to accept it to start, even harder to ask others to accept it. A few of you know me personally and already know, a few of you I might have met and spoken to at one point. But I guess it's time for me to do this.

I am a female to male trans* man. I've been in transition for about a 13 months. That surgery I had? It was to remove my chest. I am on hormones and just trying to pass as well as I can. I know some of you might get uncomfortable, and I kind of expect that. But to those that accept me for this, and still choose to use the correct pronouns and name... Then thank you. So very much.

It makes my life easier and makes things calm. Hell, not like I'm telling anyone my legal name anyway.

Well! According to my dear husband, I am not being nearly as social as I ought to be.

So this is me, attempting to be social. Hello everyone! The weather's been nice, hasn't it? I'm quite thrilled that spring is here, really.

In fact, I've been meaning to find a good park where I can go and feed the ducks. Does anyone know of any particularly duck-filled parks?

Yours,
