"You've heard of Ebonics? How about Utahnics? The Utah accent is really hard to reproduce in print but it's kind of like a choppier version of a Valley Girl accent with more frequent abuse of misplaced glottal stops. Mountain: see, Mau-en. Clinton: see, Cli-en. Also: pillow, milk, crayon, and mirror = pellow, melk, cren, and meer. There's also a very special intonation called "church voice" that is a little bit like the Yiddish verklempt in that the voice gets all quiet and wavery, but with the added Utah effect of being full of "the spirit" and full of "telling you what to do." Utah accents are funny haha, but Church Voice is funny gross."

(sorry about the crappy quality)

(also, sorry about the long awkward pauses, I was ~deep in thought trying to remember examples of the Utah accent XD)

Damnit, I forgot about Layton! Layton is a city in northern Utah, and I say it like "Lay-uhn" ;)

Have you ever considered converting to another religion?


I was raised in a fundamentalist Mormon group (a.k.a. cult), then my family left the cult and since then I've been back and forth between neutral agnosticism and full-blown atheism. Knowing what I know, and going through what I went through, I don't think I'm ever gonna go anywhere near any religion ever again. I can appreciate the mysteries of the world as they are. I'm here to enjoy life, not to try to force my beliefs about it on other people. I like balancing the known and the unknown, and I'm in no hurry to try to find scientific proof of the existence, or lack thereof, of a supreme being. Just leave me alone and don't preach your bullshit at me.

Guys, I'm making a decision.

I'm going on hiatus.

This is something I have to do. This computer is sucking the life out of me and I can't do it anymore. There are more important things going on in my life right now and I really can't spend all this precious time on the internet. I have to finish Environmental Science and World History by March or I lose those credits. And I can't lose them. I can't keep putting my education, my future, off. I hope you guys understand.

I know I won't be perfect with this. I know once in a while the temptation will be strong to get on the computer. But I'll try my hardest not to. If I do, I hope it'll be just to get on the Keystone website to turn in crap and to research and stuff like that.

This will last until I'm done with what needs to be done. I'd appreciate it if you guys didn't send me e-mails or anything, because I just need to cut this off completely and if I hear from you guys saying how much you'll miss me... I just can't hear it. You get it, right?

Okay, after I post this I'm going to turn off my computer. Please don't be sad, guys, because if any of you really love me, you know that this is the best thing for me.

See you soon.

Just a little reminder for everyone, even if you've heard it before.

SHOULD HAVE = SHOULD'VE. It is not should of. NOT. Not. No, nono. SHOULD HAVE. HAVE. HAVE. Okay?

YOU + ARE = YOU'RE. Not your. NOT NOT NOT. FOR GOD'S SAKE PEOPLE. GO BACK TO 3RD GRADE ENGLISH.

I know there's more, but I can't think of them, and I think my brain might explode if I do.

FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS AND MUHAMMAD AND BUDDHA AND VISHNU AND QUETZALCOATL AND ZEUS, GET IT FUCKING RIGHT! Jesus fucking Christ.

Title: Heal
Characters: Kensei/Adam Monroe
Rating: Nothing bad, probably PG - PG-13
Spoiler alert: Spoilers up until 2.10
Summary: Adam remembers how it used to be, and plans for the future. Adam Monroe character study.
AN: I'm really proud of this. After going through a dry spell, I stood on my doorstep in the rain and this idea just hit me and I knew I had to write it. I hope you enjoy!
