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 →

I love the kids at the parties I work - they don't even question why, when I'm dressed as Merida, I don't come in on horseback or carrying a bow. Or if they do ask where Angus is they're very willing to accept that he doesn't do well in traffic so I found another way to travel.

I have to say there's nothing quite like waking up to breakfast in bed and homemade Father's Day cards. I'm so lucky to have the family I have and I try hard not to take that for granted.

I hope everybody else who celebrates it had a good day too.

All of you talking about your stupid dreams did nothing to prepare me for my own.

Though except for living in some kind of medieval world on the human side of a wall blocking off Fae kingdoms, there wasn't much different in my life. Still me taking care of everyone else in my family.

It's not every day that a girl gets to save her sister from falling off a clock tower! I'm really concerned about Elsa in my latest Dreams, man. At least they're not so cold!

In other good news, Objection's fourth episode is airing tomorrow night! For everyone who's tuned in, thank you for watching! I hope you like it! I won't give any spoilers away, but it only gets more dangerous for my character from here on out! Stay tuned to see if she and Trent admit their feelings for one another amidst the turmoil of the firm's blackmail scandal!

So like pitched battle, sudden surprise returns and the fate of the world. I didn't get a chance to talk to the person that returned as I had to go stop my bitch of a biological mom who's in some unholy alliance with the bitch who killed my friend and destroyed my school from accessing some powerful relic of knowledge.

Li remind me to tell you more about that you might have some ideas.

How many cars does a person need? As though the Alfa Romeo 4C wasn't enough, I now have a Mercedes convertible as well. My dream self seems to rather enjoy expensive cars. Though I suppose the Mercedes is a bit more practical than the Alfa Romeo, but even so.
