I forgot how much of a pain moving across country was, in winter no less. This is miserable.

Anyway, my new boss suggested I join this group as a good place to meet people. I'm Elaine, so. Yeah hi.

Garden planned for spring already set, everything I need acquired. It's kind of nice having a lot of space to plan for a garden. I know I'll be spending time around the world, but, magic helps regulate the care of the plants.

I have a few meetings this month and possibly up for another trip overseas. The photos from the last were used in various magazines, and it feels kind of good to be working again.

So this week is a fail.

I blew out my computer. Forgot to pull my circle up around me before I went to work on editing. And some industrious critter, who must have been hungry, dug up half my garden.

I think I'll just go back to bed.

I am off on assignment for a few days. I have forgotten how much time I spend in my cabin when I go away on these, because I forget that I must be careful and mindful of my magic.

Day Two has gone well, however, I didn't manage to wreck the plane OR the bus I was on.

I suppose that is a success?

Hello everyone! My name is Adam. At least it is if I remember correctly, ha ha ha.

I am a friend of Victor Frankenstein's. Now that my recovery has reached a point where I am able to use the computer with some ease (though I do still have some questions about some of the applications and programs), Victor has encouraged me to join him on this Network. He says it is a good way for me to make new friends.

I am new here. I moved to live with Victor as his roommate, because he is my friend and asked me to. I was in an accident not very long ago and Victor is helping with my recovery. But I am doing very well! Still moving slowly, but at least I am moving.

I look forward to meeting all of you here.

Garden is growing well. House is comfortable. Cats are happy. I spent more time than I meant to out for work this month, but that's okay. I've enjoyed the peace and quiet of nature lately, my Dreams seem to be on repeat lately. As if I didn't have enough nightmares to begin with?

Next scheduled work trip - Yellowstone in the winter. I've got a few months to prepare, but am I ever looking forward to it. And if anyone wants to come with, I've been given a space for someone to join me.

I might actually be social around Halloween. Although it holds some interesting emotions, thanks to the dreams and all, but I think it'd be good for me to get out of the house.

or i'll be my hermit self. I haven't really decided yet. I have plotted out ideas for carved pumpkins, though.

Sometimes I wonder how my life ended up so interesting. Honestly it had a bad start but here I've met some of the most fascinating people. I am so thankful for that. I had the opportunity to take photos for a sales barn the other day. I'm using an older 35mm film camera, it doesn't break as easily around me, so this photo is not the best in my opinion. But I love it because you can see the scope of this little mare's jumping capability. Sometimes I wish I could learn to ride, horses are so elegant. So, meet Ty.

"Labor Day" should technically be "Labor Free Day", right? Seems to be a misnomer to me. Of course, I've never been one to labor all that intensively. I only take note of it because it amuses me.

Little amuses me.

I'll take what I can get where I can get it.

Well I managed to get my camera to work. Wasn't easy and I'm pretty drained feeling, but it works. And it's relatively safe from me. So that's nice. Took forever. It's not a perfect solution, but if it means I can keep my job for a bit longer, I'm all for it.

The problem with living out away from people is that I've become even more anti-social than I used to be. How dreadful. I haven't really been able to take too many photos lately, magic and my camera had issues. I'm working on a way to protect it, but I'm not there yet. Soon enough, I suppose?

So. How's the rest of the world doing?

Oh wow, it has been a long time since I was last on the Network, hasn't it? Between the Dreams and work and other stuff, I've been so busy I can scarcely believe it. I've finally managed to finish a pretty big project, which is a load off. At least until I start the next project.

I believe I've officially ever given up on having any good Dreams. I've left the Grey Wardens and have relocated to a City State known as Kirkwall. I've been working as a Healer in Darktown for a few months.

Last night I finally met the famous Hawke, as well as her sister and a dwarf named Varric. I was to meet a friend of mine, a man named Karl. In real life, we grew up together and he was my first boyfriend when we were sixteen. In the Dreams, we had a similar relationship.

Last night I dreamed the Templars had made him Tranquil, and at his behest, I had to kill him with my own hands. I wish we hadn't lost touch when I moved to Germany. Perhaps it would be strange to contact him after not seeing him for fourteen years, but I wish I knew how he was doing.

Is this the OC being weird? Probably, I guess. These are times I do not like living way out here on my own. The cats don't seem to be taking to this dark sky - but I trust animal instincts when things are wonky.

Survived the 4th. Was rough but I managed without only one panic attack. I swear they're ridiculous. Maybe I'll get past it someday. But not anytime soon, I guess. Spent Sunday recovering and had a Dream, no less. Ah this place, I can't get over how you pile on the stuff at once.

Solar stuff is working great. I've got the cats settled. The fridge is working. And so far my magic hasn't made things go boom. So I'll take it. It's been nice, listening to nature at night. I rather think this was the best choice ever. I know I keep saying it but I can't help it.

Have you guys heard of the hoodie with a cat pouch? Because it is absolutely perfect. I've ordered two.

I mean, I'll be cutting off the ears and the paw pads when they come in, but why has no one thought of this sooner. No longer will Sir Pounce-A-Lot have to suffer through sitting in my rucksack when I take him out with me.

Well, my dreams have certainly taken a turn for the weird. Though, given that I've been told where they eventually end up, maybe I should just take it and run with it. It only gets worse from here. I didn't think I would ever see the day that Grey Wardens and Darkspawn formed an alliance. A page for the history books, I tell you.

And if I never see another giant, talking Broodmother again (her name, of course, was simply "Mother." Because that's not at all what horror movies are made out of) and her creepy, creepy Children, I think it will be far too soon. Talk about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in my life. Uuuggghhh.

Land bought. Cabin plans approved by the zoning boards for the area, I picked an unincorporated area just for safety's sake, off grid plans made. It's near a little creek, and it's a beautiful location. One step to grabbing my life and taking it back from these stupid dreams.

I think all I want to do today is lay on the beach and soak up the sun. Friday was awful, I tripped down the stairs, almost bowled over one of my neighbors and spilled hot tea, yesterday was busy dodging people on their way to the parties and stuff, and I just cannot handle crowds right now but I can't cook at home and I needed food.

Some days I wish that the Dreams would just take over and leave me without half the stupid issues I have. Instead they just pile it on and basically say "our gift to you is MORE issues!".

Week one of every morning going out the park and doing some Yoga. So far, so good. I feel better. It's not helping the other areas but that's okay. My cats don't seem to care I'm lighting the apartment with light from the outside. Curtains drawn, sun coming in. It's actually really nice. Although I am thinking I need to move again.

Kind of rough it, go off grid or something.

Watching the news makes me miss my travels to remote parts of the world. I can't say I'm being altruistic when I say I want to be that woman risking her life - I don't have people who depend on me, I don't have family - instead of someone with two kids.

I would prefer to be that girl. I hate the thought of some of my colleagues doing it now.

Is that selfish? It might be.

I recently went East for a meeting. I had forgotten how beautiful snow is. I am worried, though, I won't be able to attend these meetings anymore. At least not by plane. Or well being in the same room. Sometimes. I really hate this Dream stuff.

I hate being alone in it

Anyways I figured I could share a few snow photos. They're vastly different than those we had here, I think. Perhaps because it looks natural to be draped in snow out there.

Packing up the bottles of red and heading out, because really? What better way to enjoy the day than spell books, pizza and wine? Thanks, Zee, for the well timed distraction!

Okay, so my little Moroccan-themed house is currently a mess because the Dream Fairies decided to literally take a book-shit in my space and dump a whole library's worth there. So many spellbooks and everything and anything related to the occult and mysticism. Who out there is a fellow friend of the hocus pocus and wants to come over and help me sort and organize into an actual library? I'll even order pizza. Or Chinese food, just no dark meat. Or white meat.

Dear Greenpeace, fuck off.

As a newly minted nature and human photographer for National Geogrpahic, even I know that you don't walk on the Nazca Lines sites. You just don't! The ground is fragile, and sensitive and ontop of it all you damage one of the lines. What were you thinking? You just don't do that. You damage a world heritage site for a climate change message?! It's an important message, Climate change is a big deal, but you don't use a freaking world heritage site for it.

You don't damage something so old, so important to a people.

What the ever living fuck is wrong with you? If you don't know what I'm up in arms about, go read this.
