A while back I got shot, and that really sucked. It put me in a wheelchair, and that really sucked, too. I've made pretty long strides since then, even gotten some feeling back, but this whole time my therapist kept telling me I should get some kind of animal companion.

Guess they make your mental health a less sketchy place. So Rose and I finally went out and got me a kitten. They're pretty low maintenance, you know, while still being generally warm and fuzzy. Better than fish, I guess. Hopefully I keep this thing alive.

Funny thing though, Logan. I'm gonna have to name this cat after you. Because look at this:

A few warnings about the Scourge.

They can't be reasoned with. They also cannot turn you into one of them unless you're exposed to the plague, which typically must be ingested. So don't eat any suspicious looking grains.

The typical ghouls are much faster than zombies you see in movies, and watch out for geists, who like to climb walls and attack from above.

I'm more concerned about the giants, abominations and frost wyrms, personally.

They're being led by a man called the Lich King. He's incredibly powerful and dangerous, so if you see a man in blue armor with a glowing blue sword, run.

You risk your very soul if you stick around.

Did you know that if you lock your keys in your car and a locksmith comes out and pops the lock for you, you can submit the receipt to your insurance company to get reimbursed?

I do now.

And I'm kicking myself for all the money I could have saved if I'd saved those damn receipts every time I locked myself out of the damn car.




(OOC: I actually found this out myself this afternoon after locking my own key in the car.)

OH man. I went to the store today and I am seriously starting to freak out. Like, who knew there were this many kinds of TURKEYS? Or stuffing? What's with all these nuts, and why are there so many cans of things out in the aisles?

I mean, I'm not even cooking it and the guy who is probably already knows what to put on the list, which like... I haven't actually asked for yet because I thought I'd do the shopping later in the month but now I am not sure at all.

Doing adult holiday stuff is like... really overwhelming, guys.

The dreams seem to leave me hanging for longer than I care to admit. I really want to know if I live. It's like waiting for a sequel that has been stuck in production for longer than it should.

Also, apparently I need to get out more. I've spent the last week working, so it's definitely time to do something else.

I know it’s been a while since I was a kid, but I… really don’t understand the toys that Madison and Laurel are asking for. Today they both said they wanted a poopsie doll for Christmas. Which is some weird mutant unicorn/human hybrid baby doll. That you feed. And it poops slime. I understand the unicorn part. Every girls go through that stage, I think? I understand the slime part. We’ve made slime together and I buy them slime from the dollar bins at Target all the time. It’s how you get from point A to point B that I really really don’t get?

Sometimes I wonder if I actually learned from the mistakes I made both in the dreams and in this life where relationships are concerned. Because sometimes it feels like I haven't, and other times I think I have.

Maybe I'm just being stupid, so perhaps I'll just mull it over a drink or two.

Dreams...

I feel like I slept, but I look like shit. I know what I'm doing now. I'm going to war in a Spitfire. I've got my boys with me and we are heading to Dunkirk ealy in WWII. The Axis has the British and French trapped on the beach, and they are trying to evacuate, but they are sitting ducks, so here we come to save the day. I'm not Mighty Mouse, but I'm good in a plane. Oh, and while I did take a hit that killed my fuel gage, I'm still in the air, ready to defend. Let me see, will I crash in the ocean or sacrifice myself? This is entirely possible.

I'm ready for another round, and maybe a drink.

So while I'm sitting on this cloud, as if I don't have a care in the world, it appears that I receive a letter from two children who are looking for a nanny. It seems to be the thing I've been waiting for as I fly down from the clouds to apply for the position! Even more, it seems that I literally blow away the competition!

I find that I've received a gift as well. Perhaps an early birthday gift? An umbrella. I must admit, as mental as it sounds, I'm tempted to see if my ability of flight has crossed over from the dreams. Such things have happened before, am I correct?

I tried to go on a date last night and it was kind of a disaster and she got arrested.

Lady, I don't care how hot you are, if you're going to knock over a liquor store don't take your date there, especially when your date is stronger than you and can hang you from the streetlight for the cops to pick up.

Finally had a long overdue meeting with the head of the history department yesterday morning. My “extended vacation” has come to an end and I’ll be back teaching at UC:Irvine this September.

Defending the county and waiting for the next shoe to drop has been fun and all, but I'm really looking forward to getting back in a classroom.

I didn't think becoming an EMT was gonna be the easy way out of making something of myself, I mean... I know I crashed out of college really hard, but there was a lot going on. That's not ALL on me, right?

Still, the online preparation courses start tomorrow and wow, this is gonna be really intensive. I'm kinda looking forward to it but also pretty terrified right now. Just gotta keep reminding myself that I don't have to be the idiot hanging from a tree while everyone else does something useful.

My dreams gifted me the robe and the staff I had when I last dreamed. I've had nothing new since.

I'm missing most of the period between being returned to Malachor and the defeat of the Empire. I can make a few guesses, and I know I got to speak with the twins, but it's frustrating to miss pieces of your memory.

There was a planet called Mortis. Only three people knew what happened there, including myself. I think it's related to that last dream, and to that world between worlds Ezra pulled me into.

I'm probably not making much sense. I've received dream gifts before but I never expected these. I hate having more questions than answers.

Does anyone else have large gaps in their dream memories? I also have a lot of gaps of the period between the rise of the Empire and joining Bail, and making contact with Hera Syndulla's rebel cell.

You know what I miss? The good old days where if you wanted to get something off your fucking phone and onto your goddamn computer, you just used a USB cable and dragged and dropped. Why the fuck do they always have to make shit so goddamn complicated? I fucking downloaded like, three programs to figure this shit out and I still couldn't get the file off my fucking phone.

In other news, it looks like I'm going to need a new computer. And maybe a drywaller.

Know what's worse than being the sudden focus of an obviously bullshit tabloid story? Having said tabloid story brought to your attention by your own students.

Fortunately said students have enough brains in their skulls to know a bullshit story when they read one. Not that that stopped them from spending nearly the entirety of the class laughing and coming up with some (admittedly clever) barbs in my direction.

I'm just hoping the department head has as many brains, not to mention the university board...

...though, all that being said, I choose to take the compliment about my ass for what it is.

God, these Dreams really piss me off. Just picturing Count D's smug little grin grinds my gears. And he's obviously doing it on purpose. I dreamed that I arrested a pickpocket, and then the Count posted bail for him. The Count claims it was because the guy bought some animal from his shop, but the hell kind of business practice is not only sell animals to homeless pickpockets but to post their goddamn bail when they're caught in the act. And the Chief's one of his customers too. Why???

He's clearly just doing this to get under my skin. Well it's not going to work, you creepy little turd.

Did you know? The best way to be heard is to find those that wish to be heard themselves. To become more than they are. In our Dreams we are all someone else, someone far more special, but that should not stop us from becoming who we truly wish to be here and now.

You are all special... you have been chosen to be the alpha group for the upgrade of the new hit video game, Angel Sanctuary. Be the first to have the gift of a truly life-changing experience this Christmas. Copies are available for pick up at Emerald City Cafe for a limited time. Do not miss your chance to see the world anew.

So this is the place where people dream of strange places and fight things that come from them? Do you guys get paid to do that? I'd think that would really be quite the dream job. Do you have any openings, or is it one of those 'you snooze you lose' deals? I can see how dreams can affect you, though. Once I dreamt I was reincarnated as a car muffler and boy did I wake up exhausted in the morning!

Anyone else stoked about the meteor shower tonight? I hear this year it's going to be pretty stellar.

Your parents won't even miss you!" but now I'm thinking - woah there, those roads look REALLY unsafe. I bet they're too unsafe to drive down to San Diego, right?

I'm just going to imagine I'm seeing all of you nodding at me. "Yes, Jaune, they are." Hi, by the way. I'm Jaune. But you... probably already know that. Anyway - about that snow, do you think it's really going to stick? Cardin bet me 50 bucks it would, and I would really... really... like to keep my cash. What do you think?

There's a weird level of technology in my Dreams. We've got some tech that's incredibly advanced. Like the cell-phone device I got this morning? This thing is way better than my Samsung. It makes normal calls, does two-way, messaging, emails, takes and stores video, acts as a game controller or the game, you can even connect it to a desk and display pictures and maps and whatever else. While we do have cars in the larger cities, the main mode of transportation from one place to another is boat, airship, train, but mostly horses and walking. It's weird, but a kind of peaceful weird.

Ah, school dances. I remember attending a few of them as a boy. Granted, a few of those required stealing away to the school in town. Completely worth it, of course. I was pleased that my Dream self ensured that Beacon would also continue that wonderful tradition.

Dream me apparently has a problem with authority. Though, if you're going to show up in someone else's kingdom with your friggin' army just to flex your nuts to the world, you should really expect someone to pick a fight with you.

These Dreams certainly have interesting parallels with reality. I'm still rather new to this Dream-memory concept, but I will admit it took a few moments to remember just which world I was in this morning. They reminded me of my days as a young man back at boarding school in England. The professors were strict, the classwork enigmatic, and the physical training exhausting.

Then again, they never sent new students flying off of a cliff. Perhaps it is for the best that I am merely a teacher in this world, rather than a founding Headmaster. The liability forms alone would level what is left of our forests.

Last year, when I wasn't dealing with crazy monsters, or whatever, I was babysitting my nephew on the 4th of July. Which means I didn't get around to much celebrating. This year I'm hoping to hit up all the fun spots.

So. What are the fun spots?
