I P-shifted earlier this week. Usually, I would have jumped on here immediately due to the excitement of accomplishing another P-shift, (And I did it without ripping anyone's throat open. Yay.) but for some reason I didn't. I was excited, yes, but the shift also came with something unexpected. It came with weight. The weight of knowledge, I guess. Or, more specifically, the weight of OK, so now what do I do? Shifting was supposed to be the endgame. The accomplishment. Not the next foot...Read Full Post »

I hold a trash bag in my left hand. In my right is a garden tool for cutting weeds. I pause for a second, wiping the sweat from my forehead. It's well into dusk, and looking up a tree towers before me. It's covered with English Ivy vines that constrict it, thriving off its slow, painful demise. Scars run up the tree like lashes from a whip.
I put my headphones back on. Sounds pass through my ears, a variety of tempos, rhythms, and genres. Emotion fuels me. It reminds me to focus on the ...Read Full Post »

So I've mentioned that I'm a 'scouter' when it comes to going to new places and scoping out the supernatural environment there. I went out and lived in Colorado for 5 years during college because I thought going out there would help me find more supernaturals. Also Colorado is known for its wild wide open natural places, so I thought it would be a fruitful places to go.
Turns out Colorado wasn't fruitful for me. There aren't too many weres out there or vampires or anything for that matt...Read Full Post »

Spending time with my pride has really helped me over the past few months since we came together. I don't quite remember when we formed our merry band but it was sometime earlier this year, and we're not a physical pride but there's still something personal about our friendship. I didn't know cats could work so well together, even though all of us are so diverse and mostly solitary in nature. It's like we belong together like this. Like when young adult humans come together in close groups, b...Read Full Post »

As usual, I haven't wrote a new blog entry in forever. I've been going through some tough stuff lately, and when you couple that with AP courses it's hard to take what I want to say and gather the time to put it all into a blog.
But I'm here now, and I'm writing, so let's just jump into it. The first thing I want to address is the whole new controversy on a "shifting age." People have been going around claiming that there is a certain age a person has to be before he/she can...Read Full Post »

Very recently I've been trying to accept my new role as "werelion". I suppose the term "chimera" or "mutt" still applies to what I am but when I think of it it's easier to call myself a werelion. I am a werelion.
Let me explain... I haven't really called myself a "werewolf" in years but it took me a while to understand why I would feel a wolf-ish connection. I am a pack creature. I do act like a bear sometimes. These things are true and my nature does match with the na...Read Full Post »

So I was looking around the a philosophy forum to find a cool topic, and found this:
"Is it better to be a live coward or a dead hero?"
Here is what They think:
"One can pointlessly face danger so one can be or seem tough or brave. (I call that self-destructive pseudo-toughness.) But that's not generally what is meant by heroism. Similarly, choosing not t...Read Full Post »

So I was looking on the internets for a neat topic for this Friday, and I came accross this
Why is there all this stuff in the universe, and why is it governed by such exquisitely precise laws?
And why should anything exist at all?
We inhabit a universe with such things as spiral galaxies, the aurora borealis, and SpongeBob Squarepants.
And as Sean Carroll notes,Read Full Post »

I decided to bring this back! I used to do this a year ago.
So, let me make you think. Please discuss your opinion Intelligently In the comments!
So here we go:
1. SHOULD WE KILL HEALTHY PEOPLE FOR THEIR ORGANS?
Suppose Bill is a healthy man without family or loved ones. Would it be ok painlessly to kill him if his organs would save five people, one of whom needs a heart, another a kidney,...Read Full Post »
