I would love, absolutely love to rent this place on Maui. And even this place on Maui. But I don't have the money for something that elaborate. Not for a few years at least.

And after researching everything? I really think I would rather be on Kauai. It has less people, more nature. Less expensive too. Less cities, more towns and more space between them. And it has diving, waterfalls, hiking, kayaking, swimming and surfing of course; and even hula classes.

So this place it is! And it even has an extra bedroom in case Linette wants to fly out for a few days, or in case Mike or someone wants to visit.

Thing is, it's a little over my limit. So I'm going to have to ask someone for help or find someplace else. Neph helped with the tickets; maybe I can see if Logan has any friends that live on the Islands who have a place to crash for a couple weeks?

Dear Diary,

Finally found a place I think that I'll be comfortable with. It's more of a summer cottage, only one bedroom and the bathroom is small with a shower stall, but - but ooh, it's so pretty. It has a woodstove as well as gas heating so I can live there in the winter as well. It's secluded on three sides by all these trees and the forth side faces the ocean. And I can see it being filled with bright colors, big bright pillows, and sun catchers to create rainbows everywhere.

I was hoping for at least a two bedroom, but honestly? This is enough for me. Besides, I have oceanfront access, and big windows with lots of natural light so I really can't complain. It's at the end of this twisty, overgrown dirt road but all in all it's a good forty-five minutes closer to work than our house out in the woods is because I don't have to deal with near as much highway traffic. That has to count for something too. AND it's got this HUGE outdoor tub! Big enough for two almost. It used to have a garden but it's gotten so overgrown and wild that I don't know where to start to make it better. Read more... )

Larger sharks dominate smaller sharks, and residents dominate newcomers. When hunting, great whites tend to separate and resolve conflicts with rituals and displays.[23] White sharks rarely resort to combat although some individuals have been found with bite marks that match those of other white sharks. This suggests that when another shark approaches too closely, great whites react with a warning bite. Another possibility is that white sharks bite to show dominance.Read more... )

Sex, being a virgin, and all that. It's long and rambling, and typical me.(Neph, run away, run away now.) )

Diary entry, February 18, 2010.

Are we dating?

We can't be dating.

A bike ride or two isn't a date. Bringing him home to meet the family for the holidays? Perfectly normal. Meeting at the beach to enjoy lunch together - friends do things like that all the time! And he is a friend, one I've grown to care a lot about. One I've grown to trust. He's solid, someone I can lean on, or - I could if I needed to. I think. He's kind of like a mountain, steadfast, strong, honest to a fault. Gentlemanly. He doesn't pull punches, he calls things like they are. Calls me out on my nonsense, on those occasions that I start getting foolish. He's very common sense, very down to earth. Very real. Read more... )

Diary, December something, 2009

It's gotten so lonely here. Everyone gone, everyone readying for war, nothing for me to do except study (and I have, believe me I have) and clean or cook, and throw uneaten food in the fridge and reheat it in hopes that someone comes home in time to eat it before I have to throw it out and make more. Haven't left the house really since the hospital incident... the hospital incident.

The hospital. All those people. Those children! So many I couldn't save, so much I wasn't able to; and in the end? Even I had to be rescued. Even I - may God someday forgive me - even I picked up a gun, and aimed, shot at someone. I killed someone. Read more... )
