Least Favorite Actor:

John Borrowman. I just don’t like Jack at all and I’m not really that into Torchwood. Not that I’ve seen any of the other shows or whatnot that he’s acted in, but I just don’t like him all that much.

I’d elaborate more, but I just woke up and I’m all sore. I’ll just go watch more Big Bang Theory. This is what happens when they make me go this long without new Doctor Who, I begin watching The Big Bang Theory. I can even sing the entire theme song thing. Hopefully everyone is correct and the new Doctor Who episode will air a week from tomorrow. I’m hoping to be able to have it on that day instead of wait a week like most Americans have to. Of course, this will also mean that I’ll have everyone I know begging me to let them watch it because they don’t have the resources that I do. I have a lot of power over them in this way… >:)

I’ve had this kind of reoccurring dream over the course of my existence involving a maze/labyrinth in a forest that isn’t really a forest. It’s not really a maze or a labyrinth in the usual sense, but it is a series of rooms in a building and it’s hard/impossible to know where to go, not that my dream self knows that there is even a place to go. The forest part comes in as the walls are painted to look kind of like a really dark forest, but whenever I dream about it, I think, “Oh, hey, I’m back in the forest”. I guess it’s worth mentioning that I always know that I’m dreaming when I’m in a dream. Like some people wake up from a dream and go, “Oh, good, that was a dream and wasn’t real”, well, I don’t do that. I can immediately spot a dream when I’m having it.

Anyway, in a dream that takes place in “the forest”, I am usually trying to get from point A to point B for some unknown reason and I can’t ever get there. Well, I should say that I can never get there unscathed. The only time I’ve ever made it where I was going, I was first attacked by a pack of wolves and then I went insane, so reaching the place I was going did me absolutely no good.

Insanity- Another reoccurring theme in my dreams.

This time around with “the forest”, though, I wasn’t trying to get somewhere, I was trying to get something. Like I was going to dash in and then come back out, the problem being that I couldn’t do that for some reason that was a little fuzzy during the dream.

The point is that I actually like “the forest” quite a bit. There are a bunch of different places that I dream about frequently, but I really like the forest because for some reason, I can always get out if I need to. Even though it’s a maze/labyrinth thing, I never get stuck in there. I frequently end up where I started, which is frustrating, or I just can’t find what I’m looking for, but I always come back out. It’s probably a metaphor for something, but I’m not very knowledgeable in dream-theory, so…

Another theme I really like, whether in dreams or literature or television shows, is time. There are a few songs about time that I really like that I’m going to use as basis for books that I will write someday (but I haven’t yet). But there is this poem that I have to analyse for my AP Literature class that talks a little bit about time, death particularly. I also like the idea of death, I mean besides just killing most of my characters off at the end of whatever story I am writing. Someday, I will write a book that is so overwhelmingly nostalgic that everyone will cry. I’m just not sure how to do that right now.

Last of all (chronologically, but weirdly mentioned first…), I dug around in the garden today and found some worms. Worms are awesome.

I read this article recently… well, I read most of it. It is a very thorough article.

I like the idea of not talking about the things that are the most important to you. Admittedly, I do understand why people say that you should tell the people that you love that you love them because if they don’t know, they might wonder and then someone might die and it’s also nice to know, but there are some things I definitely don’t talk about much either because I don’t understand how to or because I avoid sentiment wherever possible. I swear, if humans could communicate via emotions, half of our problems would suddenly become solvable. Some things just sound stupid when you try to talk about them because usually the only phrases or words that you can find to express things are cliches and very annoying. I find cliches meaningless, even though they really aren’t and even though it’s nearly impossible to explain things without phrases loaded with connotation. Language is imprecise and not at all user friendly, in my opinion, and I’m a sort of word-inclined person. Music is a little better because tone is more flexible, but it’s too easy to misread or misunderstand the message, if indeed there even is one. This is why people have a hard time communicating. At least when it comes to important things. Humans are EXCELLENT at communication when it comes to unimportant things. This is why I think teenagers talk so much. They haven’t really matured for long enough to find something really important to not communicate about, but they feel that insatiable need to communicate, so they just communicate about everything. So, conclusion number one, humans are usually just awful. Conclusion number two, even having realized this, I am unlikely to discontinue my journey toward the perfect communication of at least one, small thing. That’s why novelists write such huge books. We know that it’s unlikely that we’ll portray much meaning, so we write a lot in the hope that at least one small thing will get across.
