The Bravest Thing

What's the bravest thing you've ever done? I personally have been giving this some thought lately and for me personally I think the braves thing I've ever done was move to a different country and take a job where I have to speak a language that isn't my first language or even my second, but my third...

Re: Introductions!

Another late starter I suppose - also utterly sans humor switch, though Kendra and Sky sometimes seem to think otherwise. No idea why.

Deja vu

I have never met anyone who hasn't had a deja vu. For me they happen in clusters. I won't have one for months and then in a week I'll have three. It's a rather interesting feeling and the situations where I have them can sometimes be quite interesting. And it made me wonder: When do other people hav...
