|Quirks & Habits|
Jude has major OCD. Given his history, he can't stand to see a single thing out of place. This makes life a little challenging, but his boss at the Mighty Bean probably loves it. Jude also has a bit of a smoking habit. Maybe it relaxes him from his constant OCD. He's not quite sure why he does it, but he definitely isn't stopping anytime soon.

|Talents(T) | Strengths(ST) | Skills(SK) |
Strength Jude is a very skilled writer. Not only that, but he has a strong desire to communicate with others. This definitely gives him an advantage in his social life.

Flaws/Weakness|
Weakness Jude has a pale scar along his left shoulder blade. This combined with a slight social awkwardness when it comes to talking to girls sets him at a small disadvantage. Unless girls dig guys with scars.

|Hobbies|
Jude spends a lot of time writing, reading, cleaning, and spending time in social areas.

|Fears|
øFearø Jude is afraid of being alone. He could never live without roommates. If he comes home to an empty apartment, he might enjoy an hour or two by himself, but then he starts to get worried and calls someone to see if they're around. That, or he'll just go to someone else's apartment and see if they'll let him hang out.

|Secrets|
In all his life, Jude has never had a girlfriend. He would never tell the guys about this.
Sometimes he gets in moods where he likes to write some poetry.
He once got drunk and slept with another guy.

|Goals/Dreams|
Jude hopes that one day his writing will be published. Until then, he's taking writing courses at the local college to strengthen his writing skills. He also hopes that, one day, he'll be able to afford a comfy home somewhere.

|Personality|
Jude likes to talk. He's very outgoing and won't hesitate to start a conversation with anyone. Well, unless he's trying to talk to a girl he's interested in. Then he has no clue what to say. He enjoys going out dancing and hanging out with the others in the other apartments. A little bit of "liquid courage" might convince him to act a little silly. According to Jude, a challenge should almost never be turned down. He might be awkward when it comes to talking to girls, but if another guy tells him he wouldn't do it, then he's definitely going to do it. The same goes for sports and plenty of other ridiculous things.

At the local college, Jude enjoys his writing classes. He enrolled himself in them thinking that maybe he could gain a few pointers on being a better writer, but it only feels like he's there to show off his writing talent so far. It doesn't matter though because he enjoys sharing his papers with his classmates and talking to his professor about it.

Though Jude likes challenges, his mother gave him the greatest one of all when he was a young boy. "Be polite and use your manners no matter what." All his life, he's held doors open for girls, never forgotten to say "Please" or "Thank you," and other old-fashioned expectations of young males. He doesn't mind it since it often rewards him with smiles and pleased faces.

|Happiest Memory|
Jude's happiest memory was telling his mother what he really wanted to do with his life and deciding to move out. Instead of a dramatic and upsetting scene, his parents took it reasonably and helped him find the apartment he is currently staying at.

|Saddest Memory|
Jude's saddest memory was the day his oldest brother moved out. His parents made a huge deal out of it and told him and his siblings that they weren't allowed to talk to him. Jude didn't understand why they were acting that way and it scared him. He had wondered if his brother would be okay.

|History|

Jude grew up with other people constantly around him. The only time he can remember a quiet day at home was a sick day home from school. Their mother did most of the cooking and cleaning. She was also in charge of forcing the kids to do their homework and keep up good grades in school. With so many kids, it was hard to keep the house clean. If one thing got out of place, that whole room was falling apart because it wouldn't be long before his siblings spread the rest of their stuff everywhere else too. Jude assumes this is where he gets his OCD from. He always desired to get out and get his own place so he didn't have to deal with filth everyday. It was incredibly frustrating.

When he was a teenager in high school, his dad put a lot of pressure on him to learn what it takes to be a smart business man. This also bothered his two older brothers. They wanted to be boys and play fight all the time. Their father wanted them to sit down and talk politics and other things that they found boring. During this time, Jude spent a lot of time writing. It was sort of an escape for him. Since his brothers weren't too much older than him, they would all find ways of getting out of the house together. From there, they would get split up and do whatever they did.

When Jude hit 18, his oldest brother tried to convince him to move out with him. He said that they would get their own apartment, split the rent, and not have to deal with the pressure of being at home anymore. While the offer was tempting, Jude knew better. The oldest brother moved out by himself. An huge argument with their parents was what prompted it. Their father proclaimed that the oldest brother did not care enough about the family to take up the business, so they were not to contact him. Of course, Jude still talked to his brother. His second oldest brother found himself interested in running the business and pleased their father by going to school and studying what he needed in order to keep things running. By this point, Jude had found that writing was his passion. He started out by telling his mother that he was interested in writing. She took it well. He didn't know why, but she and his father were very nice about it and offered to help him find an apartment closer to the college. From there, Jude got himself a job at the Mighty Bean and has enjoyed living there since.

[LIVE WHILE WE'RE GOING]

“You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!”





A meteor shower!

That was what everyone had been talking about all week. Since astronomers had claimed that there would be a meteor shower on Friday night, everyone had been excited. Kids spent the last few days performing extra tasks and chores so that they could convince their parents to extend their lights outs, cafes and restaurants trying out new recipes that would correlate with the event to scrounge up more profit out of way too eager customers, and artists clamoring all week to come up with various performances and project leading up to the big day. Before everyone knew it, Friday had come along and well, San Francisco was as alive as it usually is on such a momentous occasion.


As soon as the citizens woke up, the streets were filled with more vendors than there honestly should have been on a simple Friday in May. Firework stands, food stands, and even that cute little old lady who does the palm reading your mama probably told you to steer clear of are all out. Particularly on a usually quaint little street that houses both a red and daffodil building. Everyone knows what I'm talking about. Where the coffee ain't so great, but the tenants will probably curse your name with the force of a thousand suns if you even think about bad-mouthing it. Yep, you know the place and those same people are just like everyone else. Perhaps, a bit excited for the carnival that just so happens to be going on nearby. Perhaps for the meteor shower that will light up the sky, if those pesky fireworks don't take up the limelight. Or, perhaps, they're more excited for whatever drama mother nature has decided to cook up between all of them. Guess we're all just gonna have to wait and see...

[ Last of the American Girls ]

"I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars,
And the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain of sand, and the egg of the wren,
And the tree-toad is a chef-d’oeuvre for the highest,
And the running blackberry would adorn the parlors of heaven,"








Katherine was trying to low lie for the day, she was sat in the back of a small café in the middle of town reading a copy of Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself' and was stirring a flavoured green tea with a tea spoon absentmindedly. She'd only just left the dance studio a few hours ago from her classes and the young aspiring actress was just appreciating a moment's quiet but she travelled down to go look at the meteor shower. A juvenile part of her character was thrilled about the idea of witnessing something so rare and beautiful but she didn't let it show or voice that to anyone due to a fear of looking childish, it wouldn't usually stop her but it was arguable how good her mood was today. She turned her page and pulled the ribbon place holder down the spine and set the book down in front of her on the table. She adored the poem in question but she just felt so distracted. In the corner of her eye, she caught a glimpse at a news paper on the rack and she sighed at another heart wrenching head line, another act of cruelty was being broadcasted nationally on the front page. She tried to over look it but these things always had a way of getting under her skin for a while. Her mother had always blamed it on her soft heart.

Kit sighed softly and picked up her tea and walked over the till.

"Excuse me? I'm really sorry to be a bother but could I get this to take away instead?" She asked the server politely and the eager waitress nodded lightly and gave her a brisk comment along the lines; 'Oh of course!' and Kit nodded softly and gave her a small thank you and made a point of dropping a few coins into the tip jar. She always came to this café anyway and dropping coins into the jar and listening to the metallic chime it created had become force of habit for her but she could say the same for her RSPCA donations and all the money she donated to any other charities. She was signed up to donate monthly to at least 4 and that's without the fund raisers she put time, money and effort into organising all the time. She always had some project going on and as she pondered about all her previous work and listened to the coins dropping into the jar, it hit her why she was feeling so gormless and glum.

She didn't have a project or anything lined up.

She had a couple of interviews for parts coming up but they were maybe two weeks away and Kit was a person who always felt the need to be physically proactive about something all the while- she wouldn't ever waste even an minute of anyone's time including her own. She chewed the end of drink stirrer thoughtfully and accepted the take away cup from the waitress and thanked her as she started her way out of the café, her mind whirling away as she began plotting new ideas for coming up projects she could have a go at.

So taking long, elegant strides down the road in skin tight jeans and a sleeveless top with her favourite pair of ankle boots, she made her way down the street thinking to herself about something she could do that day and debating if she felt like going to the carnival in the evening but more importantly, if she went who she could go with or get to tag along.

[ It's Time ]

"They say a picture can speak a thousand words but a song can sing a thousand more,"








Come the afternoon, Nathaniel was still padding around the music store, assembling guitars on walls and the drum kit which sat in the corner of the store. He enjoyed his job admittedly it was anything but impressive but the pay allowed to meet ends and that was all that mattered- enough to survive and he likes his job, he'd never dare complain about it.

"Yo, Matt you going down the carnival later?" Nate asked, shouting over at his college from the drum kit he was setting up and turning his head with an arched brow. The other guy shrugged and gave a muttered response which denied all knowledge of there even being a carnival. Nathaniel rolled his eyes and laughed and dusting his hands off, he stood having completed the job of setting up the nifty drum kit- it was a nice set and checking his boss wasn't around in the corner of his eye first, Nate quickly leaned over to hit a quick beat and looking over at Matt encouragingly and rolling his eyes.

"Go on bro, I've got you a beat free style it," Nate laughed and after a moment's consideration, Matt burst into a rap which mostly consisted of insulting Nathaniel's hair and drumming abilities but it was amusing none the less as far as Nate was concerned but spotting a customer by the door, both men instantly fell silent and tried not to laugh as they returned to pretending they were really busy and working hard. The customer looked at Nate accusingly and smirking a little but being the good employee he was, Nate made his way over to the customer and graciously offering his assistance and tried to strike up a sale some how. He was already five minutes over time but he didn't much, he could leave after this customer had gotten exactly the service they came for, he was a dedicated worker like that.
