Update on my extended absence(s)
Hi everyone. So I know that this isn't something that people are obligated to do, but I wanted to let everyone know what's been going on and why I haven't been updating consistently. Since my last update of Entangled way back in October, my life has been in a whirlwind. Some of you may know or remember that I've mentioned I suffer from depression. To save you all from a lengthy story about why it's relevant, I'll give you the shortened version (and yes, what follows below IS the shortened version, believe it or not). If you want the full explanation, you can PM me.
In December, I moved into an apartment with my boyfriend and his 3 year old daughter. Everything was fine, or so I thought. Back in October, he had to pick up his daughter from his ex-wife because she didn't feel like she could take care of her since she was so stressed out. At the same time, she mentioned to my boyfriend that she didn't want to stay where she was at (14 hours from where we were). He suggested she move closer to be near their daughter. She thought about it, and in January, he told me that she was going to move to where we were living, and not only that, he had extended his generosity and invited her to stay in our apartment until she could find her own place to live, as she had to quit her job and was essentially living off of his child support money. Obviously, I was not okay with this and I told him my concerns. He told me that it wasn't as big of a deal as it sounded and that she and I could be friends since we shared interests. He brushed it off, telling me that I had two choices: Deal with it, or leave. (At the time, I didn't realize how horrible that sounded.) Being so in love with him, I "dealt with it", and accepted the fact. At the end of February into March, he went down to where she lived to help her move. Immediately after she moved in, trouble started. Every time he and I had a disagreement, he'd go and mouth off about it to her. This upset me for clear reasons. It was none of her damn business what was going on in our relationship. I started noticing other things, like he would sleep on the couch in the living room because it was cold in our bedroom - which it was, so it didn't bother me at first. A week or so after she moved in, he and I had a massive fight. Afterwards, when he was asleep, I went through his messages to her. Yes, I know it's wrong, but I think it was justified, considering. The texts consisted of him complaining to her about everything he didn't like about me and how he was confused. Furious, I woke him up and asked him about it. I also asked him about whether he still loved her because I know it's difficult to stop loving someone you were married to. He told me he wasn't sure. He went on to explain that his ex-wife when he met her was everything he wanted, but that changed, and I'm - or was - his perfect companion, but he couldn't see us having a future. A few days after that, we mutually decided to take a break. (This is skipping ahead, but a month after that, I found out he barely waited a day before sleeping with her.) What followed was an entire catastrophe of basically madness. On the 18th, we officially split. I made plans to move out, but my parents wanted me to have a new job before doing so, so I had to wait two months to completely leave. The following two months were hell. I spent two weeks after the breakup crying my eyes out every day. I was so miserable and upset that I desperately wanted to hurt and kill myself. I fell into a deep depression. He was my everything and even while typing this I'm tearing up. I spent my nights off getting drunk, and I'm pretty sure that I went to work intoxicated once. About two weeks later, I hooked up with our mutual friend who lived upstairs (I'd been waiting since the day I met him to hook up with him). I probably shouldn't have done that, because for about a week, I was crushing hard on him. I got over it, but continued to sleep with him since I was single. In the meantime, I spent my time off of work in a stressful home. I had to deal with seeing my ex every single day and know that he wasn't mine anymore. I had to deal with the fact that he loved her more than me. I had to deal with the fact that I was mere feet away from her bedroom door while on my computer and just know that they were talking about me or them, or their future. I had to watch the man I loved fall back in love with someone else. It tore me up inside and it still does. As for his ex-wife, she and I were civil, up until he and I broke up. Once that happened, it was basically a shitstorm almost every day. Particularly, a few days after he and I split, we were arguing one day and she suddenly started texting me about how I'm in the wrong and yadda yadda. It seemed like every week there was a fight between her and I. Nearly a month after the breakup, they had started to rebuild their relationship, which I hated, but I was also trying to accept it. One day, they had gotten into a fight and he was telling me about it. She was threatening to leave (like she did multiple times before when there was an argument). At this point in time, I was trying to be supportive of them. I extended my generosity to her, that if they didn't work out, she could live with me once I had my own place. A week or so after that (this is about mid to late April), they get into a massive - and I mean massive fight. He told me that they were screaming and throwing things at each other - something he and I never did - and one of the many reasons I (and the few people I've told the story to) don't think they'll last. It's unhealthy. At the beginning of May, I got an official job offer, and my life was finally starting to turn around. A few days after, he and I were chilling out on our computers. She comes storming out of her bedroom and slams his phone on his desk, nearly shattering it, as it was partly made of glass. He goes after her, and the next thing I hear is her screaming at him about how he was talking behind her back about her. The next day, I found out that apparently she had gone through his texts messages to me (more lack of trust) and got angry over things that he and I had said about her from two years ago. Sure, I shouldn't have been talking about her, but I think it was incredibly petty and immature of her to get mad over something from years ago. I honestly wanted to pack up some things and take their daughter with me away from their yelling. She didn't and doesn't deserve to be in a household like that. At this point in time, I'm away from him and his drama. I started my new job about two weeks ago and I'm happier than I have been in the past few months. I barely talk to him anymore, if I do, it's because I can't find something that I thought I packed and I ask him about it. I feel like we aren't friends anymore, like he said he would be. I don't even feel like we have a relationship at all. It's like...I never met him. I can't say I'm truly happy about breaking up with him because of everything he put me through, but it's made me a stronger person, it helped me get a new career, and I realize what I have to work on with myself.
Anyway, this long ass paragraph went on forever, but I promise that is the short version. I am going to work on writing again, and hopefully I can have a chapter for something posted. Thank you to everyone who has supported me.

Changes- Update coming very soon! 10/28/15
Wind, Sound, and a Cherry Blossom - Yes, I did type that correctly. This was one of my earliest stories and I went back and re-read it. I cringed. A lot. So much so that it made me decide that I want to rewrite it. The story had a lot of potential that I kind of wasted with it turning out to be nothing less than a crack fic, and that wasn't my intention. I was like 14 give me a break xD. So I deeply apologize for that. I hope to get around to fixing things sometime, unfortunately, it will have to be once I've finished Entangled and Cycle of Bane. 10/28/15
Notes from a Killer - This one too! No joke! So, some of you may have noticed that my story is now the number one reviewed and favorited Halloween story. (Love of a Killer, the previous holder of those honors, was taken down some time ago, which upset me because that Halloween story was the reason I wrote mine.) This makes me very happy. However at the same time, I don't think I deserve it. While I'm proud of the story for what it is...I really don't think how I wrote it is worth the fame. It's a whole bunch of silliness and things that don't really make sense especially when talking about Michael Myers. To rectify this, I plan to edit the story to make it what it should be. Much like Wind, Sound an a Cherry Blossom, I wrote the story when I was 13 up until I was 16/17 ish. And I didn't really know or have the writing skills I have today. So, long story short, I plan to make it the story it was meant to be. It will take time, but I will do it. Promise. 10/28/15
Name- Callen. You can call me Cali, or Calieesi (ahahahah...pun.)
Birthday- December 13th 1991
If you'd like to stalk me more (Lol, jk), I have joined Tumblr (and have been sucked into the dark world)! My URL is xxfireandbloodxx.tumblr.com. Just a way for me to -if you guys want- interact more and so you can learn more about me and how I fangirl over things. :)
Basic Author Info- I try update my profile regularly (monthly), so all of this information pertaining to my stories is very recent. Always be sure to read my author's notes in each chapter. I do tend to babble on occasion and my notes can get long, but I assure you pretty much everything in those notes are important information. Don't hesitate to ask me questions, I love answering them! It gives me something to do XD Besides, it lets me know you've actually read into the story and you aren't just reading the words on the screen. It means you're interpreting my writing. I like when people do that. So please, do that. XD I'm the type of writer to write what is important and move on. I don't like to drone on about how a character's hair flowed in the wind or how their angst was so terrible it was like killing them. I'll include stuff like that but I'm not going to make paragraphs about it. It's irritating and kind of a waste of space in the chapter. My chapter lengths vary chapter to chapter, they are never consistent length. They are the the lengths they are for a reason. Please don't ask me to write longer ones, it will not happen.
Song I am obsessing over right now- Stone Cold by Demi Lovato
Male fictional characters I think are hot for some reason-
