when did i stop believing? that there was something beyond the air I breathe, beyond what I see, behind the tree or past that lane, beyond the water with the little bubbles in the bathtub. Perhaps when I flush the water the bubbles go to a mermaid realm far deep in the ocean where there are mermaids and merkings and all kinds of strange creatures undiscovered. I filled my water with foam and bubbles the other day, apple flavoured but they did not sparkle they should have. I hear you only stop believing after you are traumatised enough to never believe again. And where are my parents? where are my grandparents? they are all dying now. What will I do all alone? Who will remember me? I will be like a blank canvas, with no past I will have no future. With no family I will have no future. What if everyone believed? what world would we live in then...what would be on the news? And why am I so alone? is that why I don't believe? I still believe occultism and psychics and magic and I still want to be a detective like nancy drew and I promise I'll work but please don't let me stop my world...don't ruin it. It's not a game, it's not anti-social, it's just magic.

Hello...is there any body there? I don't have much to say except that I studied to be an art teacher, and it didn't work out. I don't remember much of my childhood because a lot of the moments were rough, so I wish for a second and I think I'm getting it now sitting home on disability all the time. Anyway...post more.

As Christmas and my birthday draw closer, I have been feeling more and more alienated. I feel less than enthused about what should be an exciting, joyous time of the year. I’m lucky enough to have been born right before Christmas. This year, though, I have been so un-excited by everything. I think I’m “growing up,” as they say. Sigh. I’m not happy about this change. I think that I need to rekindle my childlike spirit. Quickly! Are any of you feeling similarly? What have you done to remedy your situation? Here are some tips and tricks that I will attempt over the next few days. Feel free to do so yourself and let me know how they work for you!

 I'm 23!  Next month I'll be 24!  WHAT?  My teacher in the Children's Lit class I took was talking about the book Tuck Everlasting and asked what age you would want to stop growing at.  He said "probably not 5, but maybe 18." And I was thinking "No! I want to be 5!"  But that's what it feels like when you're young, that you've been 5 FOR-EVER!  So how come when we get older time speeds up.  I thought, and I don't know, it might be because we don't take the time to appreciate all we do in a day.  So I'm making an experiment where I'm going to write everything I did down on a list at the end of each day and take time to think about it.

My other idea is that maybe time will slow down again if I start my day early and watch cartoons and eat cereal and play with to cars before I work like I used to before school.  I am not sure if these things will work.

Oh, maybe it's because when you're a kid you want to be older and waiting makes time seem slower.  Maybe I should try to get really excited about being 100!  That'll slow things down.  Maybe I should do tedious math problem worksheets form September to June so I start looking forward to summer more.

I want to introduce you to a charming community called yay_potterkids. It was started by an artist called leochi who is a teacher by profession and an artist by avocation. It focuses on the Potterverse but it’s vastly different from the majority of HP fan sites. It’s a place where you can rediscover your love for the innocent pleasures of childhood and a place where you can safely send your kid to read Potter-related fanfiction or enjoy G-PG-rated art. Won’t you check it out?
