I can’t believe I let myself be duped so easily. I figured it all out… now before I tell you how it all went down, I just want to say that, I kind of, sort-of, knew it all along.
Remember that song that I wrote that said it wanted to kill me? Turns out, it was me all along. I was trying to kill myself without even knowing it. Sounds a little crazy, right? You’re probably wondering how that’s even possible–It is, and if you’ll give me your hand, I’ll take you there.
So everyone and their uncle knows that I used to sleepwalk when I was a kid. I would sleepwalk and then I would wake up on the stairs, in the bathtub, on the floor–you name it! I once heard a story about some dude who wore a bell to sleep, so his wife could keep track of him if he started sleepwalking; but one day, he didn’t have it on and he walked out of his front door never to be seen again. Well that absolutely terrifies me because this guy just liked to walk around, I apparently, like to make enemies in my sleep.
I remember a dream that I had now. I had forgotten it completely upon waking up, but a couple of weeks later, as Dmitrious and I were eating yogurt, it all came rushing back:
There was a simple villager who came to visit me. His world was a torn down place, shattered and on the brink of insurmountable ruin. My bet was that he was actually from Ishval–a place from this cool new show I’ve been watching. He looked pale and scared. Actually, this guy looked exactly like me—no, he was me. That’s what initially made me think that he came from parallel universe and also because his sense of fashion was way better than mine. But the words that he spoke… they were the same as the words in my song.
When I woke up, I was sitting in my computer chair, headphones on with my face in a pool of drool on my keyboard. I didn’t think that was too strange then. That sort of thing happens all the time. But after this time, It makes me think that maybe wearing a bell to bed isn’t such a bad idea actually.
I’ll let you know how it goes, Diary. Maybe Snowball and I will get matching bells and then go on adventures at night together. That would be amazing! I wouldn’t get lost because Dmitrious has volunteered to watch over me using his homemade GPS tracking device. The coolest part is that it’s almost completely undetectable by the human eye. Technology is crazy these days!
Oh yeah, one more thing. Happy New Year’s, Diary! 2013 was great and all, but I think I’m ready for a new beginning. 🙂
My resolution this year is to make new friends and to celebrate Columbus Day! Oh yeah, and one more thing. I need hang out with you more. Let’s make this year the best one ever together!
Your Best Friend, Alex!
