i can't afford a diary, so this will have to do
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
A note on Blog use.

Moderating questions for those who aren't just going to come here to stir you know what.
This is a reminder for those of you on PokéCommunity lucky enough to have blogging rights, and a note to those who can comment on them also. We would like to point out that the global PC rules also apply to how you present yourself within blogs. If you break rules seen on the list, you may be warned or infracted, and your comment or blog will be deleted. Please remember that blogs are there to be used in a constructive way, and any mis-use of Blogs may lead to further punishment, or termination of your access to the service.
Let me make something extremely obvious, myself, and others included do not buy into messages about "oh this blog isn't directed at anyone", when it's extremely obvious that it is. This blog is directed at all the recent reports we've received about blogs, not just extremely recent ones. In about 2 weeks there's been a number of blogs and blog comments using passive aggressive and pointed themes at other members and frankly, it's embarrassing. Blogs are yours to use as you wish until you use them to make a point about other members, or break rules. Remember that Blogs are not a right, but a privilege, and should be used as such.
I do not wish to discourage anyone from using the Blogging system, in fact, the more it is utilized the better! However we simply wish for Blogs to avoid becoming a haven for broken rules.
