I stole this quiz from Hez. I'm surprised at how well it came out!

Persephone.
I ended up on Persephone a few days ago, when I went to visit Hezekiah and the Whip ran some cargo.

One their crewmembers was out in a spacesuit, and was almost trapped out there. Thankfully, Captain Chi-Ling and Miss Azura are both very competant, and Shame was brought back inside with no mishaps. I don't think Hezekiah could survive losing somebody else that he is close to.

I found out that my family are still doing well. The information I was able to glean from speaking to locals was little, but positive.

I also met somebody new. Van. Our first encounter was... interesting. He's charming and has a way with woman, that's for certain. When we originally met, I was off balance and (it must be admitted) somewhat vulnerable, and I let myself be bowled over by his ways. Since then, we have met a few more times. He is a nice enough distraction, and seems willing to keep it to a nice, casual relationship. Since that first meeting, I've found my footing... and he complains that it isn't fair that I distract him so.

I think there is a lot more beneath the surface than he shows. Some of that was confirmed last night when I ran into him here on Shadow... he was being protective of a young girl that Adam was taking with him. Van made a comment to me later about how he couldn't let big things happen without trying to do something about it.

I am glad all over again that I came out here, instead of staying in the Core. There are many people that are purely selfish and only out for themselves, but there are equally as many who have hidden depths that I enjoy discovering.

Blue Skies.
I have been having an odd sort of time.

Spending a lot of the moments that I am not working on a ship. The Nephele's Whip, to be precise... the home of Hezekiah. I haven't seen Anjali as much recently ... either one or the other of us is busy, it seems. Still, our relationship remains close, and I cherish the times that I do get to spend with him.

Hezekiah seems to be doing better. I wish that I could take away his hurt. It pains me so much when I say or do the wrong thing and only cause him more distress. I freely admit to myself and to him that part of my reasoning for spending time with him and working to help him is because I need him to do the same with me. As wonderful as Anjali is, Hezekiah is something else.

I do need to be careful. As much as I remember the lessons on not becoming overly attached to somebody, they seem to be slipping away. It would be easier if he did let me into his bed as a lover... I won't push it, though. Even I know that would do much more harm than good.

What is it about him that attracts me so? Perhaps it is because I cannot have him. I don't know.

Perhaps I can work it out. In the meantime... I have plenty to do.

Musings.
My time here at the Academy is far too quickly coming to a close, and I find myself increasingly lost in self-reflection. In an effort to free some of that much-needed space in my (admittedly moderate) brain capacity, and ensure there is room for the facts and useful knowledge that I will need, I am going to begin writing some of it down. Or typing it down, at least, for we are in an age of electronics.

Sihnon is the most breathtaking and beautiful place that I have ever been. At night, the city is like a forest filled with fireflies (The insect variety, not the ships!), some of them in repose on the shadowed branches, some of them darting about, dancing with others then pulling away to continue their solitary journey. In the distance, mountains rise, gridelin sentinels against a celeste and celestial backdrop of sky. I can hear the songs of birds from my room, their full-throated chorus greeting me each morning. It has a very special... je ne sais quoi.

Persephone cannot even begin to compare. The constant sound of ships coming and going is terribly mundane compared to the crash of the ocean waves, and the conversations - if I may even use such a term for the gossip - that the nobles have is akin to the babbling of children compared to the enlightenment here.

However... as the final tests all-too-rapidly approach, I find that I am beginning to be apprehensive. I am by no means the least progressed or capable of those at the same age as myself, but still I find I have a disadvantage. That of my sometime volatile nature. A journal is a private place where one may be honest without fear of her words being used against her, so I will be honsest, in all its stark pain. I have already been diciplined for my temper, when I have been unable to bite back comments at the idiocy of some of the other girls.

Any more outburts, and I may be facing expulsion.

However, I am not so maudlin as it may seem. I do have confidence in my own willpower, and I am determined. I will take what comes, and follow the course of my life. I believe God does have a purpose for me, and I will follow His guidance as I continue the path of my life.
