A new year has started with an entire month having passed by. I keep trying to feel the effects of a new year. All I seem to be feeling?

Like I need to wake up before the whole year passes me by.

You are looking at the newest Junior Prosecutor for the LA Police. While it's the job I wanted the most I'm honestly surprised I got it straight away. I was fully prepared to have to start somewhere else then move sideways into the job.

Gwen, Merlin & Audrey
Are the three of you alright with this illness going around?

Does the offer to go running again still stand?

Thought I dreamt enough about Wilson Fisk my last round of dreams dreams, now the bastard shows up again. I guess it's sorta funny, though. This whole thing is different than that set, but there's a lot of shit that feels real damn similar.

Wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for the Devil.

I made the mistake of dozing off in front of my television after work only to wake up with a sore throat from screaming so much in my dreams. They'd tied me up, then my cousin Jed showed up and was about to kill me when he noticed the burn mark from my birth mother's necklace on my chest. He let me go, and I tried to leave before one of the mayor's henchmen grabbed me. Let's just say it's the last time he'll be grabbing anyone again.

I believe that with everything going on that I'm going to take a break this semester. I think that it'll overall be in my best interest at this point, especially since I've still not completely adjusted to being blind yet. The doctors still have no answers for me, and honestly? I'm tired of feeling like a pincushion.

I have been listening to a lot of Audible lately, their subscription is worth it in my opinion. I just finished listening to The Hobbit, it'd been a while since I'd read it, and now I think I'm on to The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I swear, these dreams are either comical or life threatening.... Sometimes, even a mix of both.

Dreams can be so utterly fascinating. Anyone around up for sparring? I think I need to work out some aggression before work this week.

I understand why guys in my position get dogs now. Running with a dog tends to get people to stay out of the way. When I run by myself, I have two options: run with my eyes uncovered while risking the stares or run with tinted goggles since sunglasses won't stay in place at the pace I keep.

And they still stare.

Weird thing? I never noticed until now.

So thanks to a new dog owner that I know, not naming names, I paid a visit to a shelter today fully expecting to walk out with a dog without a fuss. How little I know about the adoption process. Did you know there's paperwork involved? It's all quite intimidating. There were a lot of questions. I took the forms home with me. Do I own or rent my home? Do I have a yard? Have I owned dogs in the past? Am I able to provide daily exercise for a new dog? I'm feeling quite insecure at the moment. I think I'd be able to provide for a dog in all of the vital ways, but I don't have a yard and I've never owned a dog before. Are those deal breakers?

I spent the afternoon packing, and came to the realisation that I don't have much to pack. It's going to be an easy move down the hall in a few days. Almost feels like cheating somehow.

Things still ain't getting any better in my dreams. Hell, they only seem to be getting worse with each passing one. At least we're still surviving. I reckon that's all that matters, but damn if it don't feel like I'm spinning my wheels all the damned time.

After dislocating my shoulder going down a fire escape the wrong way, I seem to be on the mend. My sleep is undisturbed by dreams so far and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Every time I teach a class, I always end up with at least one student who thinks Archaeology is going to be an easy pass class. I'm not entirely sure how these particular students get into a class like mine. It has certain prerequisites that some of these students don't have.

Are there other professors this happens to or am I the only one?

It's been brought to my attention I have no 'social life.' I've been working on getting out more. That hasn't been easy lately. I'm blind which means the visual effect of the fog we had was lost on me. I still felt---wrong in it.

The sun shining on my face feels good to have back.

I hope I'm not the only one enjoying the return to our usual Southern Cali days.

My dreams have not been pleasant at all. Lots of fear, blood and death. The only good thing coming from them is the fact that I've been able to write more these days because of them. I'm nearly done with my first draft of my latest book, and I've already done an outline for my next one. Here's to hoping that, at the very least, they keep the writer's block at bay.

Court reopens for business as usual on Monday. I thought I'd feel better about that. Right now? I feel as if I could use a holiday to recover from the holiday.

Oh well, such is the life of the working stiff.

We're having a survey at the library through the end of August, and I thought I would bring it here to broaden the group a bit.

Which do you find more convenient for your lifestyle:
  • Books
  • E-readers
  • Audiobooks

    In an ideal world (where time and money were not a factor), which do you prefer the most:
  • Books
  • E-readers
  • Audiobooks

    Personally, I've been sold on e-readers since they came on the market, but then again, I've always been a fan of gadgets.

    In my dreams, my blindness seems to have given me enhanced senses. Not in the usual way, where your other senses sharpen slightly to make up for the lack of one, but in that I could hear someone's heartbeat.

    I'm not really sure how I feel about that. It felt utterly overwhelming, in my dreams.

    Why are textbooks so expensive? What are they printed on, unicorn hide? Good lord. I don't often wish I was back home, but after paying US tuition rates and then having someone slap me with a thousand dollar bill for my textbooks, I'm starting to wonder why I live here. (Oh, right, I love you lot.)

    Apparently I'm missing some very strange looking skies, at least according to my coworkers.

    I had some strange dreams. I dreamed about losing my sight again, but this time it was different. I looked about the same age. But my mother wasn't with me, and a truck carrying chemicals was involved.

    Very strange.

    Who wants to go shopping? I don't really need anything, I just want to wander from shop to shop and get something frivolous. Which is depressing to do by one's self.

    So I'm going to put my step-mother's money to good use and host a Independence Day party. I might even do some grilling. I'm going to rent out a large outdoor area and for what I'm paying, the fireworks better be worth it.

    Location

    Everything starts at 4pm!

    For those of you who encouraged retribution, I have an update: I have successfully stolen all but one of my coworker's pens. Every time he gets more, I take them. All but one.

    I have a desk drawer full of his writing utensils and he has no idea. I feel strangely accomplished.

    Apparently, blindfolded makeup challenges are a thing?

    First off, someone please tell me what they look like because this sounds hilarious. I would love to know how they managed.

    Secondly, who would like to volunteer to let me do their makeup?

    I'm doing this voice to post so please excuse any mistakes.

    I'm new here and have been told that the internet is a good way to meet people. So here I am. This is all pretty new to me so please be patient.

    My name is Capability but most people call me Capable. It's good to meet you all.

    Thank you to whatever coworker rearranged things on my desk.

    You're hilarious. Really. No one has ever done the "move the blind guy's stuff around" trick. My god you're so creative.

    I feel like I need to write some sort of Frequently Asked Questions page, just to avoid the rush of But you're blind, why are you on a message board? So let's address a few things that I tend to be asked whenever I venture outside of my bubble.

    Are you really blind?
    Yes, I really am. You can stop waving your hand in front of my face. I'm No Light Perception (or NLP) blind, which is exactly what it sounds like.

    How do you use a computer?
    The same way most people do, but with some added software. I have a screen-reading program that reads text to me, and a dictation program that I use to write longer documents. Shorter things, like a quick e-mail, I can type on a normal keyboard, and then have it read back to me to make sure my fingers were on the right keys when I was typing. Peer editing is also very helpful.

    How do you watch movies?
    I don't, technically. I listen to them, like you would an audio book, but with a buddy to explain the action. I usually like radio plays or just listening to music better, but I hear Netflix is introducing audio narration to some of their shows, so maybe I'll check that out.

    Am I missing anything?
