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 →

Tony has the COOLEST STUFF EVER. He has this super secret lab with all this cool stuff in it and an iron suit and there's a ship from Wakanda! I want to fly it but he said I can't because I'm too little. That's okay, i found these super cool gloves and I can go wherever I want! I went to a park and then a bakery but I didn't mean to but I wanted cookies. I also went to DISNEYLAND ALL BY MYSELF!

OOC: He popped into Baxters at random then disappeared a few minutes later. Anyone is welcome to have seen or talked to him lol

Well no one should ever go to a party with my dream self if they expect to be told anything important, like the wine being spiked with vampire venom, in a timely manner. Sorry about that, Harry, wherever you are - I swear if you show up I will try much harder not to let you get poisoned by vampires that hate us both and want to drink your blood when we go to a costume party.

First off, to the people responsible for the chrome update: Thanks, I hate it.

I don’t just mean the way it looks (although I will be perfectly honest and say it reminds me of everything I didn’t like about the family computer that was still running Windows XP until Mom finally got herself a laptop. I’m looking at these tabs and wondering what year this is.) Since it updated, each time I try to switch tabs, my entire computer freezes. This isn’t normal. I’ve done virus scans, spyware scans, and everything's come up clean. I’ve cleared out the cache. And it’s still doing this. And god forbid I try to watch anything on youtube, that’s it’s own set of issues.

It would be annoying enough to deal with if it wasn’t for the fact I’m trying to do my homework. Something that involves looking up things. And I’m trying to do it in google docs, so I can access it wherever. And it requires me switching tabs. Which makes me unable to do anything for anywhere from two to five minutes.

And apparently gmail is also going to change in two weeks whether I want that update or not. So. That’s going to be fun.

I’m enjoying my new job, working in the library of the girl’s elementary school. It makes more sense for me to be the one taking them, since we’re going to the same place. But instead of putting their car seats in my car, Am’s decided to take the lazy way out and just switch cars with me. ...Although from what I understand about car seats, they’re nearly impossible to get in right so I kind of can’t blame him for that. It still is weird, I’ve had my car since college.

Being a library assistant in elementary school is a completely different experience than working in a college. I don’t just check books in and out or reshelve them, I’m also having to teach kids how to use the library. You can tell which kids don’t come from families that read a lot, they’re the most lost about the whole process. I’m trying to suggest books to them more. I’m hoping it might help make book lovers out of them.

Maman asked me to go through some photo albums with her to try to pick the pictures to put in her new frames so that she could see them easier if she relapses again and show them to visitors. As we were flipping through the last ones we took before moving, we came across this picture of Antoinette as a puppy with her maman.

Cut to save friends page - not filtered )

I’m pretty sure that was the day I knew for certain Antoinette was the puppy I wanted to keep from that litter.

Alright so whoever had their money on Claire being the first one in my Dreams to figure out I was a ghost - please come by the house to pick up your prize. DreamMichael is an idiot but I think we can all agree that is more than well established by this point. The teenager that we took into the house to protect - caught me disappearing at sunup. Well actually she saw me die, because that’s something I enjoy reliving in every dream that I have thanks to whatever is behind this crap, and then disappear but not before I begged her not to tell our other roommates that I’m dead. Because it’s not enough that I’m lying to my best friends there, I have to drag this kid into lying for me. Nice. Real nice DreamMichael. No wonder that fucking vampire killed you and no one realized you were gone.

And because of course that can’t be enough, Brandon - the vampire that wants to kill Claire for insulting one of his people, follows her to the house. And when he can’t grab her he takes Shane hostage and threatens to kill him if we don’t send Claire out. But Brandon isn’t the brightest guy apparently, since he’s making this threat while standing on the porch of the house right in front of the doorm so I can reach out and grab Shane and yank him into the house. You’d think that would be enough tempting of fate for me but no - I have to threaten the psychotic stalker vampire.

That night after everybody else goes to bed I talk to Claire about what she saw me do and tell her how I died, because that’s a cheery bedtime story right. And then I warn her to stay away from Brandon because clearly she can’t tell on her own to avoid crazy assholes right? I mean trying to stay away from people who want to hurt her is why she moved into the house with us. And in sticking with the theme of this oh so cheery bedtime conversation: I made her promise to kill me by whatever means necessary if I start craving blood because that means I’m turning. And in Morganville of my Dreams? That’s not good. At least not with the people I love there.
