    lately i just keep having these lousy dreams. they’re not “nightmares” in the traditional sense; they don’t cause me to wake up in a sweat in the middle of the night or anything.
    they usually involve me seeing or, worse, doing something horrible that seems perfectly normal in the dream, but when i wake up i realize how wrong it was and start panicking about what that dream could have said about me as a person or if it was foretelling some terrible thing i’m going to do in the future. after i get up i find myself trying to avoid people/things that were involved in the dream
    they’re never clearly related to anything that happened the day before, and by the same token reading/watching something before bed in hopes that i’ll dream about that never works.
    for a while recently i was having these random stupid bouts of stress every couple days, but that seems to have mostly waned within the past week or so; however, this dream thing started happening almost as soon as that stopped

    • July 1, 2020 at 5:21 pm

      Whatever it was, you’re not a terrible person and you’re not going to do those terrible things. Sometimes dreams are just WEIRD. What we dream about usually goes with what we are subconsciously thinking about.
      Maybe you were thinking ‘I would never do that’ or thinking of a person who did whatever it was.

      It doesn’t mean you are going to do that in the future. Like I said above, dreams are just weird🤷🏽‍♀️ I’ve had dreams where I’ve done stuff but I haven’t done it in real life.

    • July 1, 2020 at 6:48 pm

      I don’t think you should let your dreams define who you are, and who you will be. Maybe, after you wake up, don’t avoid the people or things in the dream, try and face your fear of what’s going to happen. A dream is not foretelling the exact future, maybe it’s trying to give you some hints that you’re having stress? But, don’t let yourself think that these dreams mean anything. Because you are in full control of what you decide to do. If you don’t want yourself doing these things that you do in the dreams, then you won’t do them in real life because you have full control of your actions. Don’t start being afraid of yourself, or others, or other things, because dreams don’t tell the future.
      The simple truth of things is that bad dreams are far better than bad wakings.

    I got scammed on Animal Jam today out of a pink long spiked collar, my rarest item. Someone was hosting a giveaway and earned everyone’s trust and then scammed me once I OFFERED my item. I begged them for give it back but they didn’t.

    I feel like an idiot because I know that those are sometimes scams and usually avoid them, but this was different. Now I am WAY less rare and I know for a fact that the moderators will only suspend them, which isn’t nearly enough. And I can’t even try to ask people to donate because they will think I just want attention.

    (Also since every time I make an AJ related post on the blog, people ask for my user, it is syd54321)

          in retrospect, it was way more effort than they should’ve been putting into obtaining items from a seven year old but like each to his own i guess

            i’m sure by now they’ve gotten much quicker at scamming seven year old’s

      • July 2, 2020 at 3:44 am

        Yeah I did, but what sucks is that I won”t get my item back. AJ’s policy says that they can’t give items back because we “should have used the trading system” and “know better”.

        I’ve been playing Animal Jam for over 8 years, and I am cautious. And the scam happened when I was using the trading system.

          I know! It’s sooo annoying! I really hate when aj is like “we can’t give items back blah blah blah” “you should use wikis to learn your item worth… (not what they said, but their reply’s have that aura)” THEY ARE AJHQ! They can release items whenever! Now they can’t refund your items?!?! Someday I am going to start a trade with AJHQ and say “Hi! Do you have Rare Forest Gauntlets? (On Animal Jam Play Wild)” and see what their response is! Probably they will be like “Hi Jammer! Blah blah blah” (I can’t picture the rest of their text)

    We just found out that 2 of my dad’s co-workers have tested positive for covid :[ one of which who my dad works closely with. And if 2 have tested positive, who knows how many other ones are asymptomatic. My parents are both healthy but over 50, so I’m ngl I’m a little scared. Plus, if my dad has it we probably all have it, and we’ve been trying to wear masks but what if we spread it to someone? :[

      Oh no, I’m so sorry Flame. 🙁 I’ll be praying for you. A lot. This is all so scary right now, like Clo said. I’m sorry you have to go through this. But please keep wearing masks. Not long ago someone at my little cousin’s daycare tested positive. And my little cousin’s dad, (my uncle,) has been around my step-dad a lot lately, and that had my whole family scared for a while until we found out it was a false positive. :\ sigh

      I’m sorry. <3 Do you know if those people are trying to have it confirmed, or if this is the confirmation?

      *hugs* <33


      • July 2, 2020 at 1:57 am

        There are two confirmed cases that we know of. They both definitely have it, one was sick and got tested and the other guy knew he was exposed to the sick one and got tested. My dad is going to get tested tomorrow.

        And yes, we will be wearing masks 😛 my mom essentially bleached the whole house, and she and my dad are getting tested and either way we’re self quarantining for two weeks to make sure we don’t have symptoms, and I’m actually wearing a mask right now :[ just in case my dad has it but the rest of us don’t (which seems unlikely to me), we’re sort of social distancing him (which is hard in a smallish house) when we can and wearing masks in the house. (which i don’t really see the point of, if he has it he’s going to be in the house for the next two weeks and there’s no way we’re not catching it then.) But, regardless, if we have it we’re not spreading it to anyone else if we haven’t already.

      Yikes! I really hope you don’t have it! I found out today that one of my cousins tested positive for Covid, luckily I haven’t seen him in months so I know I haven’t been exposed, but it’s still really scary to learn someone you know has it. I’m glad you’re wearing a mask, that’s one of the safest things you can do. Also remember to wash your hands a lot, stay 6 feet apart from others, and don’t leave your house unless it’s an emergency.
      *hugs* I really hope they find a cure for this virus soon.

    I love the name Needleblaze and I think the nicknames Blazer and Needler (especially because this relates to Halo) are great. But Idk if I’ve lost sight of myself, or what…

    Quarantine changes people. :/

    I can’t figure out if I’ve changed or if I really am more of a Stormsong – Stormglow – Stormlily (or other… I’d still have to decide).

    But if I ever change my name again, I’m going to keep my purrsona a cream tabby for a while because I don’t want to be like that and I’m still searching myself.


    They say you can grieve about losing parts of yourself, but I don’t know if I’ve lost it or have just lost sight of it.

    *slaps forehead with irritation*

    Oh crud, I just realized that you have a similar siggie, Flamecloud — sorry about that, I didn’t know 😛

    Right now, my brain is telling myself Needleblaze. But then it reminds myself how Stormsong or Stormglow fit me better (NUUUUUUUU)

    I’ve been very exasperated about this ever since… well, ever since I created the name Stormsong for myself. And even more so once I swapped to Needleblaze. Because both fit me for completely different reasons. But I feel like I can’t change it because I literally just changed it and I had a rule for myself that I’d keep names the same for myself for, like, a year (ha, yeah, right… now).

      Go with your gut. What do you really want? Think about it for a few days and then go with what you really want. (I hope this advice helps)

      • July 2, 2020 at 1:55 am

        It… actually does, a little bit; thank you, Streamy!

        I’m obviously still going to wait a little while, as my problem with Needleblaze was that I rushed into the name. The name I’ve been thinking about in the back of my head for YEARS now is Stormtail, although it’s the name of a canon cat, and a canon cat who I don’t particularly like (I just haven’t mentioned it on the Blog because I doubted I would go with it for these reasons, and I didn’t mention it above because I’ve only, like, within this hour considered that I might need to go with my deepest gut feeling so that I don’t end up changing my name again). Also, I just changed my name, and would feel guilty about changing it again.

        But my gut is telling me Stormtail after years of waiting, so I’ll wait on it for several more days than what I did with Needleblaze, and then I’ll see. 🙂

        Popping in to say that having a bunch of alter egos on the blog is discouraged because it can be very confusing for everyone else (having multiple names is okay, but make sure that everyone knows they’re all used by one person 🙂 ).

      Oop I know I’m a tad late, sorry, but I’m going to rephrase what I said on discord.

      It seems like you dont really know who you are at the moment, and that’s okay, but maybe you shouldn’t commit to anything before you feel confortable and confident in yourself completely. I dont think it matters if the name you like has a Canon character, or if it doesn’t include the suffix -song, just do whatever makes you happy and that you won’t change your mind about every few weeks 🙂

      I dont think ive helped much on here/discord, but im excited to see the new name(or if you keep needleblaze) you pick out.

    Yesterday night I heard something that was probably a firework but it sounded so much like a gun and I was scared because I just had a nightmare and I woke up in the living room though I clearly remember falling asleep with Bramblestar’s Storm in my hands in my bed. It’s weird.
    Y’all will probably hate me for this but I am extremely short-tempered. I can’t even remember the last time I laughed, or even smiled. Most of the time I’m either yelling at my mom or attempting to do very dangerous things. So today was really rough aka the worst day of the 9 years I’ve lived. I wasn’t able to do “enough” homework, I spent most of my day yelling, and now my throat is sore. I didn’t get to do anything I enjoy, and my mom decided she would only let me come on the Blog when I’ve done all my homework for that week.
    Manga is really stressing me out; I can’t take a break because I’ll be letting so many people down if I don’t finish it in time, and it’s hard to balance things right now, with everything that’s going on in the US as well as Japan.
    I need hugs.

      No one hates you, Bright. It’s okay to be stressed right now, with everything going on in the world. Just take deep breaths and tell yourself it will be okay. And it is okay to take a break. If you overwork yourself you won’t feel good. Don’t stop working entirely, but giving yourself breaks in between several hours of work can be really helpful, even if the breaks are short. Things will get better, I promise.

      You probably started sleepwalking toward the couch! The same exact thing happened to me before! I remember falling asleep in my bed, and I woke up on our couch, apparently I was sleepwalking! Oh, Briar!! We would never hate you!! Especially for a little thing as being short-tempered!! And you don’t have to smile or laugh, but it’s nice to. 😀 Try to eat some honey for your throat, and try not to yell? I think they’ll understand if you don’t get it finished in time, everyone has their own personal lives, and they will understand that yours is not just about getting this Manga done. Everyone’s having a tough time during quarantine, and I don’t think they will be mad if you don’t put out a Manga in time! 😀

    I got a call from my boss today telling me that I have been exposed to covid-19. One of my coworkers has it. The chances I have it are really low because we all wear masks and social distance and sanitize everything but I’m terrified. I’m so scared that I’ve exposed my parents who both are high risk due to diabetes. I’m getting tested tomorrow morning and if I have it I don’t know what I’ll do with the guilt I feel at exposing my parents.

        I’ve been doing my best to keep away from them but since I live at home during the summer I’ve been in super close contact with them. Because of HR rules my manager couldn’t tell me who the person that potentially exposed me was but I have a theory it was one of our design team members who I worked with Tuesday. I’m really hoping my guess is correct because if it is I barely spoke to that person and wasn’t ever close to them. Thank you for talking to me : ) it’s been really painful because I don’t have a lot of people to talk to about it right now. So I really appreciate your support.
