I was reading a friend's blog a few minutes ago, and it made me want to start mine up again. Not that I would actually go so far as to call this a blog rather than an online diary of my life, but still. Close enough.

I guess I'll start by saying: whoa.

I'm finishing off my second year of college and there's only about three months between me and the University of North Texas. It's a scary thought, moving away from home. I know I can do well on my own, but it'll still be weird to live five hours away from my family.

It might sound unusual, but I'll miss Cricket a lot. Seriously. She is my baby and I hate leaving her behind. Of course I'll miss my parents too and my brothers, but I can actually talk to them on the phone or webcam; there are ways for me to communicate with them while I'm away so it won't feel like they are too far. However, with Cricket, I will rarely get to see her and it's going to kill me. That dog is precious to me.

Final week is here. I am pretty confident in all except my biology class. I think I'll wind up with a B, but it's still on the edge. With a teacher I can barely understand and who bores me to sleep, it's hard to pay attention in class. I've been taking the last few chapter notes, but I doubt it's going to help me very much. She really fails at teaching. Plus, she pronounces things wrong. Tortoise =/= tortoys. Fail.

I saw Iron Man 2 with Sean today and it was great! The movie had me hyped up by the end and craving more, especially with the mention of Thor at the end of the credits and the Captain America shield in the middle. I loved it. I love how the end of each superhero movie with the heroes from the Avengers has a little scene at the end of the credits. So Thor will be next; I've already seen what he is going to look like and Chris Hemsworth looks delicious. Then Captain America after and I'm sure Chris Hemsworth will be The Sex.

Anywho, I really want to get to posting in a Batman roleplay I joined now. I'm playing Robin and the Joker in it. I'm so nerdily excited. I'm also thinking about buying Batman: The Animated Series since I miss that show more than I miss sweets. Mark Hamill is an amazing Joker and the guy who did Batman's voice is my hero. Plus, I miss Robin. ANYWHO! I'm out. Peace!

Did I just say peace? Ah well.

TALLYHO!

Scene Nine.

- Wide shot of Traci's house/the base. Text t the bottom says, "One Week Later". Allison's voice can be heard at first, and then it cuts to the scene. Traci and Allison are sitting in their usual spots in the base. -

Allison: He took me to Chili's last night and we had so much fun just talking and enjoying each other's company and...

Traci: - obviously not thrilled over the conversation - That's great, kid. Great. Now how about we...

Allison: He brought me flowers and everything! He's such a charmer!!

Traci: Yeah, cool. But hey, let's talk about...

Allison: He seems really interested in joining our team. He says it's hard working alone, ya know? And we could use the extra help ourselves...

Traci: - as if she had said it a thousand times - No.

Allison: - Sits up from leaning on the desk -  Traci! Come on, hear him out! He's really a good guy!

Traci: Allison, you've only known him a week.

Allison: And you haven't even tried talking to him yet! - Traci let's out an annoyed sigh. Allison, realizing she might be getting to her, scoots closer - Look. How about this. You let him work with us for...a week or so and see how things go. If you don't like him, then you win! He is no longer on the team. But if he's helpful and a good team player, then we can keep him right?

Traci: - letting out another annoyed sigh, rolling her eyes. - I don't know, Allison. I haven't had such great luck with...

Allison: Pllleeeeeaaaasseeeeee?

Traci: - looking daggers at her - Fine.

Allison: - squeals - YES! - Traci jumps at the sound -

Traci: But no pet-names on the job.

Allison: Okay.

Traci: And no googly-eyes or swooning sighs.

Allison: None whatsoever.

Traci: Actually, no romance at work no matter what.

Allison: Alright, alright already!

Traci: And he does all of the paperwork.

Allison: Alri...You mean...I no longer have to do it? - Traci nods - I'm no longer the rookie? - Traci nods again; Allison jumps up excitedly and starts dancing around. - I'm gonna go tell Wolfen! - Races out of the garage before Traci can say anything. On the way to Wolfen's house, Allison sings/dances to "Hands Down" on the way there. Cut to when she gets to the door, Adam answers at the climax of the song [hands down this is the best day that...] and have them together. -

Scene Eight.

- Allison and Traci are sitting at a picnic table in the park eating lunch. Traci looks very serious as she eats; she's really tired. Allison looks tired as well, and she looks uncomfortable with the silence. -

Allison: Maybe we should hire someone else to help us out? - Traci drops fork or whatever she's holding, obviously frustrated. - I mean...trios have worked before, right? Like...the Three Musketeers, the Three Amigos, the Three Blind Mice...

Traci: But partnerships have worked to, ya know. Bill and Tedd, Spike and Jett, Han and Chewy.

Allison: I'm Han, right?

Traci: No, Chewy.

Allison: -lips- Dammit.

Traci: But you're missing the point here, Allison. The point is, two works just as good as three.

Allison: Then why do we have our work cut out for us?

Traci: Because...- pauses, trying to think of something - ...because we aren't...energized enough.

Allison: What do you mean?

Traci: We haven't trained enough. If we work harder, we can defeat all of the demons!

Allison: But I don't think it's our training that is at fault! I thinks it's just pure numbers. Demons are popping up everywhere; we need more people if we are going to catch 'em all. [Reference to Pokemon]

Traci: No we don't. We're fine the way we are.

Allison: But...

Traci: Allison, drop it!

Allison: Trac- - is looking off behind Traci; sees demons sneaking up behind her -

Traci: I said drop it, Allison. There's nothing more to discuss!

Allison: Bu- -is still trying to point out what's behind Traci -

Traci: That's it. You're doing all of the paperwork alone when we get back home.

Allison: - stands up fast - TRACI!

Traci: - snaps - What?!

Allison: BEHIND YOU!

Traci: - Turns, sees the demons - Shit. - Stands up fast beside Allison. Both start backing up. Hear something behind them, look and see more demons coming up behind them. - Double shit.

Allison: What do we do?! We're completely surrounded! - Traci is silent. - Traci?

Traci: I'm thinking! I'm thinking! - Both stand back to back; find a way to make the camera circle around them completely angling up to them. -

Allison: Say something!

Traci: Like what?

Allison: Anything! You're the boss!

Traci: - stands up straight, puffs out chest. - You can take our lives, but you can never take...OUR FREEDOM! - demons hesitate, confused, then keep coming -

Allison: That didn't work.

Traci: I'm all out of ideas...

Allison: We're doomed.

Traci: Yup. - Both are huddling up against each other, squinting their eyes shut as if waiting to get hit. As the camera stays on them while they brace themselves for attack, we hear the sounds of a fight going on [hits, punches, grunts, kicks, etc.] After a moment, Traci and Allison open their eyes one at a time to see why they haven't been killed yet. All of the demons are on the ground, not moving or groaning in pain. -

Allison: Whoa. Traci, you ARE good!

Traci: That wasn't me.

Allison: It wasn't? Then who was it?

Traci: - Nods towards a figure leaning up against a tree, acting cool. -

Allison: Double whoa. - Traci and Allison walk over to the stranger; Traci is trying to act cool while Allison is grinning and looking appreciative. -

Traci: Are you responsible for all of that? - nodding towards the demons on the ground -

Wolfen: That was me. - is looking at Allison as he answers -

Allison: - seems lost in his stare - You must be so strong! You defeated ALL of them!

Wolfen: It's all in a day's work. What's your name, beautiful?

Traci: - Allison is about to answer, but Traci interrupts - What's YOUR name, stranger?

Wolfen: - seems to finally take notice of Traci - I am Wolfen. Wolfen Sheepsclothing.

Traci: What kind of name is Wolfen?

Wolfen: You can ask my mom that question. Oh. Except she's dead.

Allison: Traci! Why do you always have to ruin a good conversation?! - turns to Wolfen - I'm so sorry about your loss. I'm Allison. This is Traci! We're demon hunters...like you!

Wolfen: You wouldn't say.

Allison: Oh yes I WOULD say! Thank you so much for saving us!

Traci: - mumbles - We didn't need saving.

Allison: We are very thankful! Aren't we, Traci? - nudges her -

Traci: Hm? Oh yes. Thankful. Hey Allison, you ready to get back to work?

Allison: Awww, is our break over already? - Traci nods as she grabs Allison and starts pulling her away. - Thank you so much, Wolfen! - Both walking away -

Wolfen: You two need any help? - Traci and Allison turn and at the same time say:

Traci: No.

Allison: Yes! - Traci glares at Allison. -

Wolfen: Sounds great. - Walks up to join them - But only if Traci doesn't mind. - There is an obvious show of dominance going on between both of them. -

Traci: - seems really grouchy and glares off in a different direction. Then turns and smiles. - Not at all! Why would I mind?

Wolfen: Cool. - Walks off beside Allison; Traci glares in the background -

- The song "Everyday I Love You Less and Less" starts playing. Traci is the singer; she is seen walking behind/beside Allison and Adam as if singing to them but they can't hear her. They are talking and laughing and 'getting to know each other'. By the end of the song, they are at the base. We see Allison hand Adam her phone number and Traci in the background scowling as she waits for her -

End Scene.

So I was listening to Skillet in the car, and this song came on. I've heard it many times already, but today is when the lyrics hit me. It sounds like me and Allison if you listen to the words clearly. Since the song doesn't specify if it's a guy singing to a girl, then I think it can be taken for friendship as well - well, min and Allison's anyway. Most of it does.

Those Nights

I remember when we used to laugh about nothing at all
It was better than going mad
From trying to solve all the problems we're going through
Forget 'em all
Cause on those nights we would stand and never fall
Together we faced it all
Remember when we'd

Stay up late and we'd talk all night
In the dark room lit by the TV light
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive
We'd listen to the radio play all night
Didn't want to go home to another fight
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive

I remember when we used to drive anywhere but here
As long as we'd forget our lives
We were so young and confused
That we didn't know to laugh or cry
Those nights were ours
They will live and never die
Together we'd stand forever
Remember when we'd

Stay up late and we'd talk all night
In the dark room lit by the TV light
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive
We'd listen to the radio play all night
Didn't want to go home to another fight
Through all the hard times in my life
Those night kept me alive

Those nights belong to us
There's nothing wrong with us
Those nights belong to us

I remember when we used to laugh
And now i wish those nights would last

Stay up late and we'd talk all night
In the dark room lit by the TV light
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive
We'd listen to the radio play all night
Didn't want to go home to another fight
Through all the hard times in my life
Those night kept me alive

Stay up late and we'd talk all night
In the dark room lit by the TV light
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive
We'd listen to the radio play all night
Didn't want to go home to another fight
Through all the hard times in my life
Those night kept me alive
Those nights belong to us
There's nothing wrong


Allison and I WOULD stay up late EVERY night and talk....talk talk talk talk. Sometimes the TV or radio would be on as well, depending on if we were laying down or not. And those nights are the ones I'll remember because we had/have so much fun doing it. We laughed constantly and we talked about everything. Our lives, problems, and random things. Not to mention, even the days when I dated David, I could escape the fighting and go to her house without worry of drama ensuing or anything. Never a fight. No controversy.

She is the Bestest Friend IN THE WORLD.

I love you Allison :)

Scene Five.

- A newspaper is being held in front of the face of Eva. On the outside cover, there is a picture of Traci and Allison's business. The Headline reads: Our Heroes At Home. Eva is reading the article on the next page. -

Eva: This is ridiculous. Who in their right mind would want to hear about their personal lives?! - Camera cuts to Deval and Angie who are both reading magazines on Traci and Allison, looking very interested. They quickly toss the magazines when Eva mentions that. Noticing, Eva shakes her head [we can see the top of her head above the newspaper]; sighs. - One of you...just bring me my mask - Deval and Angie both hop up fast, wrestle and fight each other to get the mask. Angie ends up getting it and Deval pouts as she hands it to Eva. An annoyed sigh can be heard from Eva as she takes the mask and puts it on. -

Eva: Traci and Allison are going to become somewhat of a nusciance if I can't get rid of them. - Deval and Angie can be seen screwing with each other in the back - They need to be...taken care of first if I want to continue on with my plans... - Deval and Angie's fighting gets more violent - STOP IT YOU TWO! - Both immediately stop. Eva jumps up from her seat and starts pacing, pondering. - Together they are too powerful. They are like...Dante and Nero...only stronger. To defeat them...we will need to tear them a part. Separate them. But we need a full-proof plan to do it...we need something...something big...something...hard...something...

Deval: Hairy?

Eva: No!

Angie: Smelly?

Eva: No!

Deval: Fat?

Eva: No no no no no no! We need... - Looks toward the book shelf where a magazine [or book] is sitting upwards. A picture of an atom is on the front; a reference to Adam who is playing Wolfen. Eva shakes her head and looks up at the wall, where there is a picture of a wolf. In the background, both Angie and Deval are fighting. - AHA! - Both Deval and Angie jump and stand upright again - I've got it! - Evil laughter - We are not looking for a something...we are looking for a SOMEONE! - More evil laughter as Eva goes and sits back in between her two henchmen. - The little hand says it's time to rock and roll! [Reference to Hot Fuzz] - From behind Eva, both Angie and Deval give her a weird look as the song "Mad World" starts up. Do the choreographed dance. -

Eva: CALL HIM UP! - Walks off as she says this -

End Scene.

Scene Six.

- View of Traci's house on the outside. Traci's voice starts the scene and it cuts to inside of the garage where Traci is sitting on the bench and Allison is sitting behind the desk with her feet up on it -

Traci: So if you find yourself cornered and I'm nowhere in sight...what are you going to do?

Allison: - Looking as if she is thinking really hard - Ummmmmmmmmm...scream for help?

Traci: - Lets out a long sigh and rubs her temples - Be serious. This is important, kid.

Allison: - Nods - I...fight my way out of the corner and as soon as I am in the open I put distance in between me and my enemy?

Traci: - Smiles proudly - Yes. Then you can scream for help. - Both laugh - Alright I think that's enough for the night. - Yawns -

Allison: - Looks relieved - Cool. How about a midnight snack before we go to bed?

Traci: Sounds good. - Both get up and walk inside of the house. Traci walks to the pantry. - I'm guessing Oreos? - Allison nods and smiles excitedly as she sits at the table. - I thought so. - Traci pulls out the whole bucket and sets it in front of Allison as she walks to the fridge to grab some alcohol. Sits down across from Allison and drinks. There is a long silence between them. Traci seems distant, starts staring out of the window. -

Allison: - Noticing, says quietly - What happened wasn't your fault, Trace. Yall were ambushed...

Traci: - Nods - Yeah, well...tell her that.

Allison: I'm sure she doesn't blame you. You tried to save her. - Traci nods, drinks some more, chugging the glass. -

Traci: - Finishes drink - Alright, I'm off to bed. - Stands up; Allison watches as Traci walks off. Traci, stops, turns. - Kid...you know you're the best partner I've ever had, right?

Allison: - Seems surprised, smiles. - I know now. - Pauses - But that doesn't take away the guilt, does it?

Traci: - Smirks - No. ...but it helps. - Starts walking off again, seems to become stoic again as well. - Your defense is weak. We'll work more on it tomorrow. Goodnight.

Allison: Night. - Continues eating oreos in silence. Scene fades out. -

End Scene.

I feel so pathetic lately. Really, I think I'm just lonely. Being single is fine, don't get me wrong. It's fun to have that freedom to look around and 'shop' for boys. But lately I think I've been wanting that special someone to hold. And that's not just it. I don't think I realized how much of a loser I am until I started making a habit of hanging out at Kroger when I'm not even working. I stand around, talk to people, and I can usually end up staying there for up to a few HOURS! It's really sad. I guess I'm THAT lonely. Either my friends are off to college away from where I can hang out with them on a weekly basis, or they are at work. I've tried hard to get Kroger people together after work so we can all hang out, but we always have conflicting schedules and busy lives. And usually...I'M the only one trying. That's saying something; it means no one else really cares. Which makes me sad, 'cause I love all of my Kroger friends and I wish I could see them more outside of work. But if they don't put in an effort, it's hard to get together.

With all of that being said...yes. I'm fucking lonely as hell. I come home from work and sit on my ass and do absolutely nothing. Yesterday, I watched all fourteen episodes of Spaced. Took me a good eight hours [probably more] but I spent the whole day doing it. Know why? Because I had nothing better to do. It's depressing; I'm not even kidding. After realizing how much of a lazy-ass I was AND how much of it I couldn't help...I just felt like shit. I STILL feel like shit. Like today...I got off of work at two. I went and grabbed Kristen and I Subway so I could have lunch with her in the break room. I talked with her until the end of her break...and ended up staying and talking to everyone for at least two more hours after that. If that's not lonely or desperately seeking something to do...then I don't know what is. It's so sad it's almost funny. Go ahead. Laugh. That's what everyone else does.

So. I think I'm finally losing interest in Gaia. No joke. I mean...I still love making characters and posting and stuff, but truthfully, I am tired of the people. No matter what rp I make or join, there is always someone that pisses me off or just can't write to the expectations I'm looking for. I know that may sound conceited...but after years of trying to do make good rps, it gets really exhausting. I just don't feel like gaia-ing as much as I do anymore. I mean...I'll stay on in the rps I am in at the moment. I wouldn't abandon people, even if I am not feeling up to posting. I'm not the type of person to do that. But you can bet your ass that I won't be making anymore rps or joining any. I am very wary of Gaia. Maybe this is temporary or maybe it's a new stage for me...either way I'll be focusing a lot more on my actual writing and on the movie script I started. At least that's something constructive. I must thank Gaia for helping me with my writing though. I have greatly improved since I started.

I really hope I'm not losing motivation again. It's the first step into depression, and I really don't want to feel like that again; it's not a good feeling, I'll tell you that much. And I have been SO close to hitting rock bottom and I don't want to go there. But I don't know what's going to happen at this point. Perhaps losing my interest in Gaia and talking more with people outside of the internet is a good thing. We'll see.

And don't worry, guys. I'm not to the lonely point where I would suddenly jump back into a relationship with David. That shit is over. O-V-E-R. As lonely as I feel, I really think I've been a LOT happier since I've split with him. It certainly has had my spirits up higher. Loneliness just comes with the territory. But I don't MISS him. Not at all, actually. We still talk, and have had a few lunches, even recently. But I honestly just call him or go out with him simply because I have nothing else to do. I get so bored and need someone to talk to, so I just call my ex and see how things are going. I'd call Allison, but I know that if she's not online she's either studying, asleep, or busy with Adam - if you know what I'm saying ;D - so I don't want to bother her. I know she wouldn't mind if I did, but that still doesn't mean I would do it. If I really need to talk to her, I know where to find her :P

But yeah. This is what's going on at the moment. Nothing to big; and everything else I just have to wait out. By the way. Drew is so adorable. I wish he was mine. But I shouldn't dwell on it. Fuck. My. Life. :P Can't wait until the last weekend in April. Epicness awaits.

I'm out.

Scene Four.

- Fades in from black to a crime scene. Cops are standing over dead bodies, a detective is walking around investigating, and there are a few photographers taking pictures. Traci and Allison enter the scene. The cops see them, speak amongst themselves for a moment and then meet them before they can get to the bodies. -

Officer 1: Everything is under control, ladies. We can handle the rest.

Officer 2: Yeah, there's no ghouls and ghosts for you to interview here, so yall might as well be on your way. - Both cops snicker and laugh as if they are so clever. Allison looks extra offended, glares at them. Traci ignores them and keeps walking, wanting to investigate. -

Officer 1: Hey! Did you hear what I said, girlie? This isn't your field!

Officer 2: Yeah, it's regular homicide! Committed by humans. We don't need your kind. - Allison looks to be getting more agitated by the things they are saying, and Traci continues to ignore them and examine the bodies and crime scene. -

Officer 1: Oh! Look! - Baby voice - The little girl is getting angry! I think she wants to fight! - Allison loses it and is about to run up and attack them, but Traci holds her back. -

Traci: Allison! - Allison calms down and turns back to try and concentrate. - Stay focused!

Allison: Okay. - Turns back toward the crime scene to examine it with Traci. Both are bending over bodies, examining things. Cops do the cat call as they watch the girls. Traci and Allison give each other a look but continue to work. The cops continue to harass them with taunts and whistles as they try to work. -

Traci: - Let's out an annoyed sigh. - Look guys, do you mind? We're trying to work here.

Officer 2: There's nothing here for you to work on...unless of course you're just here for our entertainment.

Traci: Your ENTERTAINMENT? Seriously? You think so? - Traci looks back at Allison who is folding her arms and smirking. - Well, boy, you have another thing coming. - The song "Entertainment" starts playing. Traci is the lead singer, but everyone sings at the chorus. Make a choreographed dance for the chorus and maybe some of the verse; the two dead bodies [who should be girls] get up and dance with Traci and Allison as well as the detective. When the song ends, the bodies get back into place and resume being dead, the cops are in awe/speechless. Traci and Allison get back to work with smirks on their faces -

Traci: Here. Found something. - Allison walks over to her and kneels down next to Traci who is also kneeling. There is some kind of mark on the cement [make it look like burns or skid-marks or something]. - These marks...I've seen them before.

Allison: What is it?

Traci: It's a mark from a portal.

Allison: A portal? Like...from across the world?

Traci: More like from another world.

Allison: Another world? That sounds like something out of a fantasy movie...

Traci: Allison, we fight demons for a living.

Allison: ...so? - Both shake heads - How do you know it's a portal?

Traci: Well, every time I have seen a portal open up, these burn marks are left behind when it disappears. This tells us two things.

Allison: What? That portals make a mess of our society's infrastructure and that they can kill people when they open up?

Traci: ...um. No, not exactly. It tells us that these people were killed by whatever came out of this portal. They were probably just innocent bystanders when the portal opened up and something nasty came out.

Allison: Oh.

Traci: Whatever did this is long gone. - Stands up and turns to the Detective - Our work is done here. Thank you, Detective. - Starts to walk off; Allison gets up, confused, and follows -

Allison: Wait, that's it? Shouldn't we look at the bodies...study the crime scene...take pictures...or something?

Traci: - While they walk - There's was nothing else to see. A demon came out of that portal and killed those people. There was no evidence to WHAT type of demon did it...we just know it wasn't a regular homicide. All we can do now is wait.

Allison: But...but what if it strikes again?

Traci: We can't really do anything at the moment. Can't save everyone no matter how much we might want to. - Song starts playing in the background "Life is Beautiful". Traci lip syncs it to Allison as they walk down the streets, etc. Scene ends with them arriving at their base in the evening and closing the garage. -

End Scene.
