You're gonna miss each and every shot you can't be bothered to take. That's not living life—that's just being a tourist. Take every shot. If it's worth caring about, no matter how impossible you think it is—you take the shot.
Clint Barton was born in small-town Iowa with one older brother. Life was quiet, uneventful and largely boring. By the time Clint was in high school he already had a minor reputation as a heartbreaker and troublemaker, not to mention his teachers' building frustration with his inability to focus long enough in class to actually apply himself. Clint wasn't much for 'learning', however. Sitting around in a class wasn't his preferred way to spend his time.

By his senior year, he was cutting class almost as much as he was attending it. Clint was always aware that he wouldn't be making himself some highly educated whatever, college wasn't on the cards for him, financially or academically, and that was fine. He wasn't that interested either. With a manual laborer for a father and waitress mother, Clint was under no illusions about finishing school and going straight into the workforce to help make ends meet.

The month of graduation there was a recruitment drive for the army; the prospect of an education with a purpose, the chance to travel and actually doing something worthwhile. Clint signed up on the spot. His mother wasn't especially happy, but the options in their area were greatly limited, and Clint knew he'd never be happy pulling the usual nine to five there.

Enlisting was, by far, the best thing Clint ever did. Joining the US Army built a much more settled nature in Clint, calming his rebellious nature somewhat. The army gave Clint a sense of belonging, equality and discipline, things that were largely lacking in his life. Taking to life in the military like a duck to water, Clint excelled in his training, working through his initial training into his first tour of duty, specializing primarily in on the field communications. Following his first four years, Clint spent only six weeks at home before resuming his second tour, stopping half way through a deployment in Iran to go through Ranger training on the recommendation of his CO.   Read more →

Just when I thought this state could not get stranger: now the rural portions of California wish to declare independence from it's Urban half and be known as New California.

It's kind of eerie how these dreams are paralleling my real life, right down to my divorce. Was that necessary? Now I can have failed in both my dream life and my real life.

I've met Jim finally though. In case you were wondering if he's as much of an ass in my dreams as he is in real life, he definitely is. Ask him about the Kobayashi Maru test.

What the fuck. I woke up with a can of Farrah Fawcett hair spray in my hand. What? Who wakes up with hair spray? It doesn't help that I was totally having dreams set in the 80's and my hair is out of control, but I'm the cool dude on the high school campus. I have the sudden urge to put on a Members Only jacket, put in a cassette and have a jam session.

What the hell is wrong with me.

I feel like I have a hangover, but I didn't drink anything. I think it's the dreams I had last night. I know this network is kinda odd about talking about their dreams, but I had some strange ones. I was growing up in the 1960's and there was even singing involved - we're talking musical worthy song break out. It was so odd and I don't understand why I'm dreaming about that.

I'm not entirely certain who to direct this to, but I received an item from my dreams that needs to be kept from falling into the wrong hands. Is there something in place for items of power like this to be protected? I will also say that it's not a weapon and it's not dangerous.

It's just not a Friday night until I'm hit on by at least two men, while I'm out, one of which can't listen when I say I'm not interested.


Which results in me breaking his hand and arm then his buddies nose and talking my way out of being arrested.for assault.

I have the best Friday nights..
