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 →

If only Anakin could find joy in snow, but no, he was still very much against snow. )

I don’t know who it is that keeps putting mistletoe over my station at work and on my car but I’m sick of it. When I found out who it is I’m going to make them eat that little twig.

Okay I'm just going to go ahead and say it now - Die Hard is not a Christmas movie. It is a movie that takes place at Christmas and that is a completely different thing.

Is there someone here who may be able to help me put the pieces of my spaceship together? I think I have all the pieces of it, but I'm no engineer. It's not a huge spaceship, it's actually a fighter-class single pilot kind of ship as opposed to a large starship.

Sometimes it sucks to be working with vets and animal shelters at this time of the year. At least this year I think I found a good forever-home for one little puppy. So, Stiles, come over. I have a surprise for you.

Everyone else, if you're thinking of getting an animal for Christmas, consider getting an older pet that might be overlooked, despite them being just as cute. They'll appreciate it and you may have saved your new best friend's life.

Hello there, my name is Caleb Danvers and I've managed to stumble upon this little area of the internet. I'm really not sure what all I should say in an introduction post because I doubt anyone actually cares to read through it all. I'm originally from Massachusetts, but I attend Cal State Long Beach as a history major. I also participate in the swim club there, but if anyone has any leads on a part-time job that'd be great.

Still a little confused about the snow, but hey, weird things happen with the weather all the time. But at least everyone on here seems pretty chill from what I saw when scrolling through.

There really ought to be some sort of rule about standing right in front of the time clock messing with your phone while waiting to clock in. Especially when there’s a line of people behind you waiting to clock in. You can’t clock in for 15 minutes and want to goof off on your phone while you wait? Fine. Go for it. I don’t care. But don’t do it right in front of the clock so no one else can clock in! We have to be in position on time if we don’t want to get in trouble with our supervisors! And it’s a bit difficult moving quickly in some of the costumes.

My birthday was last weekend and while I love celebrating my birthday, the last few years have been more than a little strange, on that day, because of my Immortality. I know that I've stopped aging physically and unlike in my dreams where I'm already hundreds of years old, here I've only been a Warlock and immortal for a few years. So it's still strange to think that I'll be watching everyone I love age while I stay the same.

On a lighter note, I did have a great birthday, as always, and don't actually intend to stop celebrating it. I figure eventually I'll simply get used to it.

At least the Snowmen are done with. I'm very much looking forward to going back to London to visit my brother for Christmas, then joining Freya and her siblings for New Years'.

I'm still not completely okay with knowing I'm a fictional character, but I have to say, the company that makes the game series I'm apparently from just came out with a line of activewear clothing. I may have bought one of the hoodies for myself. I'll just have to play dumb and say I'm a fan of the games or something. Or maybe I'll just have to play the games, save whatever one, or ones, I'm in because that would be too weird.
