My last final is on Wednesday and I fly home on Thursday night. I'm looking forward to seeing my mom and Paul, but I will miss Annabeth. I don't know exactly when I'm coming back, because my mom bought my ticket home and told me she has a surprise for me when I get there and then she'll tell me when my return flight is. She's so weird sometimes.

[Annabeth]

I need your advice.

Ugh. Could have let Menelaus kill Paris and end the war, but no, that would have been too easy. Had to save him and make Helen love him again instead because of the stupid pledge. Sometimes Aphrodite can be a real pain in the ass.

Was this the face that launch'd a thousand ships,
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?


Helen. Yeah. Helen and Paris. Helen and Paris and me in the corner saying 'go on, sugar, it'll be totally cool if you run off to Troy with the hot prince. Menelaus will completely forget about you within the week'. Heh, yeah, that went sooooo well.

So yeah, I guess the lesson today kids is: shipping is all well and good but whatever you do don't try to actually push your ships together because you could start a terrible ten year war.

Out of all the Greek gods my father just has to be the sea god. So, yeah, apparently Poseidon is my godly parent in the dreams. We were playing a game of capture the flag in the woods, Clarisse and her buddies attacked me, but I defeated them after I touched the creek and my wounds healed. Then I got attacked by a Hellhound and defeated it by touching the creek then after all that a glowing trident appeared over my head, which meant that my father had claimed me.

Yeah, so wanna know the irony of this whole thing? Poseidon is my father and I have a freakin' fear of water! I should have known it'd be something like this.

There's not enough wine in the world to make me feel good about this last dream. I can't get my head around this woman and her thought process, apparently no one ever had the 'don't go looking for a date at your family reunion' talk with her. Then again she sprung fully formed from the sea and severed male bits, so either her brain never formed or it was water logged.

Bad enough that he's her father-in-law, but he's also her nephew and in the real world he's my cousin and then they're gonna end up having a kid. It's all just... wrong!

Tomorrow is my first college Homecoming game! I'm super pumped because it seems like it should be a lot of fun. It's kind of a big deal apparently. I don't even care about football, but I got some new school spirit stuff to wear and my roomie is hoping that I'll hang out with her group of people, but as long as I have Percy to talk to then I won't mind.

So, my dreams continued and I really didn't enjoy them very much. They were kind of scary and I felt completely helpless as I watched "little dream me" try to save her friends from the Cyclops. Luckily I'll feisty and I managed to help save my friends. But... as we made our way towards the protection camp there were too many monsters and my friend sacrificed herself to save us. She's a daughter of Zeus so he felt sorry that she had to do that and turned her into a pine tree that helped strengthen the barrier to keep monsters out. A pine tree - seriously? What kind of crazy father does that.

But the rest of us were safe and time passed quickly in my dreams and I grew up at the camp. Then my dreams kind of came back into focus when there was commotion at the camp and none other than my crazy friend, Percy Jackson, made his appearance into camp. My dreams ended with me taking care of him the nurse's tent after his battle.

I think I prefer real college over these dreams.

I shouldn't have had that brie before bed last night, gave me weird dreams. Like 'springing fully grown from a mix of sea foam and freshly removed dangly bits of a god, only to make it to land to be nearly sexually assaulted by somebody who looked like cousin Zachary' sort of dreams. At least I hope it was the cheese and not one of those kind of dreams like everybody else has been having.

Working with a company that actually respects me and my work, and even having time to work on my own projects, is nice. Seems like I loved it so much I sort of turned out everything for awhile. Sorry, all! Its been a good month so far, and I am definitely not complaining.

My therapist was shocked I hadn't done much other than be with my fiance and work, though, and told me I need to get out more, so... ah, hello, all, again! Name's Zach Jupiter.

Crap! Crap! Crap!

I think I told my friend that I liked her last night. I can't really remember. We went to our first college party last night and we were drinking and I think I told her I liked her. We've been friends for years and I don't want to screw that up cause she probably doesn't like me like that. Crap! I mean, she might have read it in my mind when she could do that. How do I even find out in case I didn't?

I'm just gonna hide here under my blankets until this headache goes away.

Hello lovelies! I'm Angel and I'm new to the area. Can I just say that I absolutely love SoCal? Because I do! I love everything about it! I should have moved here ages ago. Anyway, I'm taking the month off to enjoy absolutely everything I can in Orange County, and to go to cousin Zachary's wedding later this month.

Also, hi Zachary! I figured online was the best way to get in touch with you. We're going to be like neighbors now, isn't that fun? You should come over sometime, we can do some cousiny-bonding things, whatever they are. Oh, and bring Tessa, I want to meet her, my brothers are betting that she isn't real and I would so love to take them to the cleaners!

Anyway, anybody know where a woman can get an awesome piƱa colada in this county?

Being back to myself is definitely helping me to not freak out. Of course, dying or trying to, tends to do that to one, I think. It was a trippy experience, and not one I want to repeat any time soon, or ever, again. I wish and I hope, that all of us will be free of such things from now on.

I haven't talked on here in awhile. Things have been pretty crazy, with a new job, and working on moving into my fiance's house, and various crazy weeks. But life seems pretty good now, especially now, in the wake of that week of weirdness.

So this is me, Zach, sending hope to all of you that you are having a truly awesome day, or will be.

If anyone has been curious, the cruise has been fantastic! Our ship has not broken down or been boarded by pirates, so Huck and I are both alive and well and on our way home actually. Should be docking tomorrow in LA then my birthday is Sunday. Normally I'd say we need to do something, but I'm banking on being pretty exhausted Sunday, so I think I may just spend my birthday in bed with Huck. Make him make me breakfast and all that fun stuff.

QUESTION: Does anyone know how to fix shoes or know anyone who does? Broke the heel on my favorite pair of boots on Bourbon Street. We were both pretty drunk and heels and being drunk really don't go well together with cobblestones. Luckily it was when we were going back to the hotel. The perk was that I got a piggy back ride back after that.

Alright, so we're going to go enjoy our last night on the ship and see you all again when we get back.

Of all the times to start having more Dreams. I'm starting to hate these things and Stefan, dream love or not. Has anyone ever figured out how to make them stop? I keep hoping mine just won't come back, but then there they are again, a month later. I could do without dreaming about my boyfriend killing people and me dating his brother, thanks.

You never know how much you miss something until it's gone. The world is in such bright technicolors lately, probably because I'm getting used to seeing things again. I spent about an hour yesterday at the library, just looking through the art books. It may sound a bit selfish or vain of me, but damn I'm happy to be able to see.

Though, I gotta admit that feeling the Earth was pretty awesome.

I am glad to say I finally managed to get a job, and get most definitely settled again. It's a engineering design and support job for the headquarters of a company that just moved into the area, called Genesis, Inc. They are small, but they seem really nice. Most of their business has been in Egypt and Greece, apparently, helping spread technology infrastructure in some of the more remote areas.

So, that's fun! I spent a lot of this month in training with them, learning their policies and their style of equipment and business. I am very excited about working with them and already enjoying this job!

It's weird what you can learn on the internet these days. Used to be a bunch of bulletin boards, linked up, and then more and more sites came online, and now, almost every piece of information out there is online. Without doing anything illegal or even immoral, you can stumble over almost any piece of information now.

On other news, still no job, but I finished working on re-engineering a new processor unit, and hopefully that will generate some revenue once it's patented and rights are sold. Being a computer engineer is interesting sometimes.

Finding another job is turning out to take longer than I thought, but that's okay. I have savings built up, and this is really increasing my time to work on some engineering projects. Not to mention rehauling my entire computer system from scratch. Weird, but fun.

The lacking powers thing was weird, and felt a little unsettling, but having them all come back at once was worse. Nothing like having thousands of years of memories hit you all at once to make your brain hurt. Nah, better not say that.

How's everyone else doing?

The other day I heard something rattling around in my sock drawer. Which was odd, seeing as socks don't tend to rattle. Upon investigation, I found an old Cambridge ring.

I say old because it looked quite well worn, and rather tarnished. I'm sure it isn't mine, as mine is silver and this one is gold.

I think I'll keep it as a good luck charm.

In other news, is anyone out there hiring for a moderately smart and hard worker in computer and electrical engineering, as well as programming, with three years experience holding together a company's aging network infrastructure? Inquiring minds want to know.

Cut for discussion of violence/nonconsensual acts )

I have since become aware that there is a colloquial definition for the term, which does in retrospect make the police use of that word quite offensive. I can adapt my own usage, and will, when discussing the subject in a colloquial way. I had no intention of offending anyone, and regret that I did. I never try to be deliberately cruel.

This is why I prefer dogs.

My therapist figures writing on here might help some. So, ah, here goes.

Dreaming of being another person is really weird. Of course dreaming this and seeing all the talk of dreams coming through and true is even more nervous making. I'm not fond of my dreamself. Not remotely.

What makes things worse is discovering the original copy of my birth certificate and that my name is not what I think it is. But the name of my dream self.

That... freaks me out. How do you even process that your name is not what you think it is. it makes this dream thing seem a whole lot less fun, even, than it was before.

Isn't this dreaming thing freaking fantastic? I mean really. What did I do in this other life or whatever to deserve this? Oh wait, I was forced to fight to the death with other children. That must be it. Everyone else gets to dream about being superheros and doing awesome things and I have to dream about a world were children are forced to murder each other.

How many times in life can a person draw the short straw? Yes, that's supposed to be a rhetorical question.
