An Interactive Twilight Experience.
On August 16th, I am going on a solo road trip. I plan on driving down the coast for 6 days. Originally, I wanted to make it down to San Diego, but I think I am just going to go as far south as San Francisco. I have never been there and have always wanted to go. Here are my plans so far for my "me-cation".
Leave at 6am and head down 101. I will be stopping in Tillamook, OR for lunch with my cousin, who lives there. We will visit for a couple of hours as well,…Continue

I do not remember the details of my transformation that well. I may have been unconscious, because I woke up as a vampire, seeing the bodies of my regime around me.
I know that my regime and I were marching through the woods, on our way to our camp. We were ambushed by a vampire. I do not know his name, but I vaguely remember what he looked like.
He had dark hair and red eyes. He looked to be around 17, so definitely a young, less experienced vampire. Perhaps…Continue

After his final surfing competition, Solomon finished first. I'm was so proud of him, but I couldn't push away that void in my heart for not having my family in my life for almost 12 years. Just imagine that, missing all the marriages, births, deaths, birthdays...
That night we went home and I ended up crying…

I moved away at about 16, my junior year, unable to take the pain of losing my mother, Sarah. I decided to drive down to California along the coast till I came across Santa Cruz where I was enrolled for high school classes. I had a small one bedroom apartment in a secure building where I stayed when I was in school. …Continue

June 22nd is a day I'll never forget. Why you ask, well let me tell you.
Kim and I had been having a mostly quiet day at home. Knowing the twins were due any time we hadn't been venturing too far away from home or the Rez. Kim had a burst of energy that day. Something both our mom's and Tiffany had warned us could happen a few days before they boys would arrive. Kim was cleaning and organizing. The house was looking fantastic. I decided to stay out of her way, and…Continue

Though I was a vampire, I still found myself involved in the war for the remainder of its duration. It was because of pride. I was able to take down several enemies at nightfall. For awhile, I was a legend. My comrades had no idea I was still around as I kept a low profile. I worked in the dark. They came up with legends of the land being cursed. People were disappearing. They made up some story about Jersey Devil like creature snatching British soldiers from their slumber. I relished in…Continue
Being a nomad simply means one has no home and never stays in one place for long. Thats what I was up until a few years ago. I came to Forks, as a friend of Carlisle's, to aid in witnessing to the Volturi. Being opposed to the Volturi, I loved the opportunity to stand up to them, especially to save an innocent child. Soldiers fight for the innocent and protect their freedoms. Little did I know, I'd meet my soul mate.
I was married prior to my change. Martha was my world. We…Continue

Every day I am reminded of the fragility of human life. Today it hits home a little harder than usual because of familial circumstances. The Black family has been integrated into our family and because of Jacob's and Renesmee's relationship we are a true family. Blood is not all that makes a family bond. Today the infant daughter of Tiffany and Billy Black is in my care. She is 2 months premature and her lungs are not yet mature. She is on a ventilator and will be for at least a few days…Continue
I still think about him often. I'm moving on with my life, but still, I think about him and what could have been. I see many of my friends and other people my age settling down, some even starting their own families. I'm waiting for when it is my turn. Eric and I had it all. We even talked about the future. But, as people often do, we drifted apart. It was not by my choice though. It's easy for me to blame him, but I have come to realize that it happens. I'm…Continue
Wow. Who knew I'd be turning fifty one years old while expecting my 4th child? I surely didn't see that one coming. I guess I did see it coming but it just didn't sink in until today.
I went into the baby's room today and it really hit me. This is happening. A few weeks after my 51st birthday I will once again become a new father. It really IS new to me all this baby stuff. I don't remember how to change a diaper, I surely don't want to get puked or peed on and I don't know about all…Continue

Well, it is starting to hit me. It is the fear of failure. I guess it comes with any change in life. I am talking about my job as a teacher at Forks High. What if I am not good enough? What if I do something to muck it up? I really hate these feelings because they detract from my excitement. I have heard teaching is not the easiest job in the world. I cannot afford to mess up this opportunity. As my first day creeps closer, I am getting more nervous. Granted, I still have about 6 weeks. I…Continue

There has been some chaos in the castle lately. I fear the relaxed atmosphere that many of the guards have gotten use to is about to change. More duties, extra hours standing guard. Chelsea no doubt will be reinforcing the bond everyone has to the masters and their wives. It's happened before when other guards start to forget their place.
Mentally I have started to prepare for being sent away on a mission. It is no doubt what Aro will wish. The departure will be hard…Continue

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around." - Bob Marley
This happened to me, or at least I thought it did. Eric turned my world around the moment I met him. We were inseparable from day one and did everything together. He was my inspiration in so many ways. We talked about the future often and had high hopes. But, fate decided it wasn't meant to be. He broke up with me. Well, he stated we…Continue

So, my dad's birthday is next month. I wanted to get him something special. He has always been a proud man, mainly about his roots. You see, he's 1st generation American and was born after my grandparents came over from Scotland. They came over because my grandfather was involved in the trade industry and his work brought them to Washington, but they never lost sight of their roots and traditions. People say I get my pride from him.
I was psyched to find this, so I had to order it. It…Continue

"Oh you'll never make a career out of music," they said. Yeah, that's what my aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents have said. My parents continued to encourage me. Well, I can finally say I am getting somewhere. No more waiting tables for me! In late August, I start my new job at Forks High, teaching kids all about music appreciation and I even get to direct the glee club. My excitement cannot be contained. It's great to work at my Alma Mater, as I know many of the teachers there. For…Continue
