He’s suing me! My former landlord is suing me for breaking the lease when I moved out early! Can he do that when he’s the reason I broke the lease though? And there’s something in there about my jeopardizing his livelihood, because I told the school what had happened so that they would know what he did before allowing him to advertise his room to students. This is too much stress when I’m trying to get on Chopped so that I can hopefully win prize money and start towards opening my own place

I cannot even begin to believe that this is a question my employees are asking, but NO. I will not close the restaurant or the clubs down just because you want to go see Infinity War this weekend. No, I don't care that you've waited ten years for this movie, you still have to work your shift or you wont have a job in the morning. No, I don't care that I'm being unfair.

My dreams came back. Besides being sickeningly adorable with my girlfriend, I've been hard at work planning the rebuilding of the city after Kuvira's attack.

The president has been both an obstacle and taking credit, and is pushing us to get the job done in a time frame that's next to impossible. He just wants to win reelection and I just want to strangle him.

It doesn't help that I've been getting threats from one of the Triads. Protection racket, that sort of thing. Nothing I can't handle, though it took some convincing to get Korra to realize I can still handle myself.

The worst part about moving so far is trying to get my crock-pot back from the neighbor. How do you forget that it wasn’t yours? I mean honestly. How? When you have to call someone to ask if they have one you can borrow - you can’t really expect the person who loaned it to you to believe that, right? The sad part is if she’d asked me flat out if she could have kept it - I’d probably have let her. I mean I have two after all and loaned her the one I don’t use very often, but kept just in case something happened and the other one got broken. I just don’t like being lied to and manipulated like I think she was trying to do.

Well, I have to say my dream lover actually does romantic marriage proposals very well. He does know his flowers. A red tulip symbolizes a declaration of love. Now I am certain my offering to run across London collecting flower samples to fill his herbarium was no mere accident. I sense a set up on his part.

Though I simply must send my brother a bouquet of narcissus flowers. He most certainly loves himself above all else.

Either I'm really high or that was the most realistic and most boring dream I've ever had.

So I... I guess I've been here for over a semester now. Life here in California is so different than Seattle, and I think I'm never going to get used to this much sun. Or the random boughts of snow. I got some gorgeous photographs of it in December. It reminded me of this old snowglobe my friend used to have. That probably sounds kind of... stupid, really, but it does.

Life on my own is kind of okay, I guess, but I thought I'd love the freedom and instead I just keep missing my parents and their company. There's only so much space you can fill with tiny little squares of analog photographs. That's why I signed up here, so... hello, valar net. I'm Max... and I don't have any strange dreams to talk about. This place is pretty strange, but I guess you all know that already. I'm bad at this, so... what's your favorite photograph?

Okay. I don’t care if it is going to eat up most of my savings, I can’t stay in this house one more night. I’m renting a room here, I’ve gone along with everything the landlord’s asked as far as how the public areas of the house are kept, it’s his home. But when I come home and he’s gone into my room and rearranged my personal things to “make it easier” for me to find them... that’s way past the line of what I’m comfortable with.

I’m going to be late to work tomorrow. I’ll try to keep apartment hunting to my days off though.

Took a nap and now I have regrets.

Had a Dream. We were led into an ambush, a trap. I can't begin to even calculate the casualties. Woke up with the image of the wreck of my ship seared into my retinas.

Beamed up to the Enterprise here. She's my one, true love.

Did anyone else watch the men's halfpipe yesterday? I can't even begin to imagine how one does flips and shit like they do. It's crazy, but so entertaining. I hadn't intended to watch it, but then they mentioned Shaun White and I kind of had to see if he was gonna win.

Ha, a former student came into the diner today and left me with this:

Never was there a tale of more woe
than that of Juliet and her Romeo

Never was there a tale of more strife
than that of Macbeth and his stabby knife

Never was there a tale of more sad
than that of Hamlet and his spooky dad



I have also been informed that, should I decide to sell wine at the diner (which, it's a diner, I don't think wine goes?), to get 19 Crimes because there is apparently a mobile app for it for augmented living labels where you focus the camera on the label and it tells the story of the criminal on said label. History and wine, I could get behind that even without selling it at the diner.

One of my neighbors asked me to make a custom cake for their daughter’s birthday. An Oscar the Grouch shaped cake which I’m pretty sure I can do easily. I asked how old their daughter was turning and found out that she’s going to be 40. This is the kind of thing my parents would do if they lived out here, and I love it.

I am exhausted. The bakery looks like a Cupid vomited all over it--pink crepe paper and hearts and red and white balloons... It was worth it, though. Definitely ready for a Valentine's day celebration after the crazy of the last few weeks!

Who else is looking forward to pink frosted cupcakes?

Glitter is the herpes of crafting supplies. It can lay dormant for years, but once it's out it spreads everywhere and is impossible to get rid of.

I could have lived without a talking cat showing up in my dreams and trying to stick his claws in my baked goods. And trying to convince me to put fish in my desserts. At least I had today off from work so I could get some housework done and not need to worry about cooking anything.

Christmas in Florida was great. Got to see and catch up with my folks. Then somewhere between Orlando and Los Angeles I picked up some kind of really, really nasty cold, or maybe the flu. Probably the flu. And probably from the guy sitting behind me on the plane, who, I swear to god was emptying his sinuses the entire damn flight. There is not enough hand sanitizer in the world for that shit.

I can’t get away from baking even in my dreams. I dreamt about the making the most delicious lemon tarts last night, and I woke up this morning almost able to taste them. I had to stop by the market on the way home just so I could try and recreate them. I’m pretty happy with the results cut to save friends page but not filtered ). I’m not so happy with the fact that I had to let them cool for over an hour while trying to find my camera in my room. I could have sworn I left it on top of my desk and not in the drawer of my nightstand.

So as a welcome home gift my sister's dog has brought me a kitten:

Literally. She went out for her evening walk with Carolina and when she came back she deposited this little ball of fluff in my lap.

I know that I haven’t been going to church regularly lately but I don’t see how being greeted at the door as a first time visitor by one of the ushers who called me by name to show they were just joking around is going to encourage me to start coming more often. If anything it makes the idea of staying home with a cup of coffee and enjoying the quiet of nature from the backsteps while wearing my pajamas a lot more tempting.

Did they really need to do another Saw movie? I get that it makes them money but couldn't they make money with movies that are more than just mindless gore?

I really don't want to work on Halloween. What are the odds of this place being quiet? I just want to see my son's first one. Is that too much to ask?

I know that this time of year pumpkin spice becomes the in thing, but there's got to be a limit. There is no way my bar is trendy enough to serve pumpkin spice alcohol.

I have advice for everyone here. Never let Eliot and I administer tests of any kind. I won't lie, we thought it was the best thing in the world; especially watching Q and his friends run around like chickens with their heads cut off, but I don't think anyone else would think it was fun.

I never thought I'd be saying this but I think I need a break from the kitchen for a few hours. I just told my coworker that I still needed to do stuff to the caramel before the dessert would be ready and it took me a couple of minutes to realize why they were looking at me strange. It made sense in my head! I knew what I had to do and summing it up as 'stuff' saved time.
