Hello and welcome to "Entrial-Tales.com!" First, let me introduce myself! I'm Megan or I also go by Maroon or Maroon Caludin online. This site serves as my blog and personal site! I hope you enjoy it!
2885 have come to hear tales
Anyone that reads my blog, please be aware that sometimes I do rant about various things. Please don't take it in the wrong way or anything. This is just my place to talk about various things and sometimes vent.
Been a bit since I updated! Been either busy or lazy!
Anyway, right now currently on vacation from work! Woot! Though its more of stay-cation though we are doing little things.
So far just been lazing about and doing some little shopping here and there. And lots of reading. Right now reading "The Siren" by Kiera Cass. Rather good so far!
Also today is my sister's dog Piper's birthday!
Say happy birthday to Piper!
Got her what we call bally balls. Therese rubber balls that Petco carries with faces on them. They love them. My dog espeically goes nuts over them. In fact she's waiting for gifts. I got her some too.
Tomorrow we're going to Lily Dale! Which if you don't know its sort of a new age type community. They have mediums (or psychics) that can give people readings, services where you can randomly get a reading, some form of church service at the Healing Temple (where you can be healed! Its super awesome! ), and shops! We go every year usually. Not getting a reading though. But haven't for the last few years. I like the shops and the Healing Temple best. I shall perhaps attempt some pictures!

Oh man...so exausted! Was just bringing a bunch of my junk I had downstairs that my mom has been wanting me to bring up. Was very exausting! Plus before that fed the animals, put in some laundry. Also slipped down a couple steps when I went down to the basement to put the laundry in. So far seem okay. That's how I hurt my back some years back. Except it was going to the bathroom upstairs, and misjudged. I was half asslep and it was dark. Did that twice. Back has never quite been the same. Of course years of sleeping on the couch when I was younger probably doesn't help.
Anyway, just gotta put laundry in the dryer and then I'm done with my chores for the day. I do have to say I think my bullet journal is helping. I'm enjoying it anyway.
Also today is my brother's birthday! Happy Birthday! Even though he likely wouldn't see this. I got him some Batman figure set.
And one more day of work then I'm on vacation for a week! Not going away, mostly just doing stuff nearby. But I can't wait!
Was just rearranging some things in my room. Needed to find a place for my new My Little Pony castle! I managed to make it work. Had to rearrange a few things.
First here is my little cube shelfs! Its hard to tell (and not posting a before picture though probably have one), but moved my one angel figure off my desk to the one on the bottom right (above the drawer), moved my angel dreams music box on the shelf above.
Bow to my plushies! And yes, my calendar is still on June. Laziness! Anyway, I moved the My Little Pony carosel next to the plushies. Used to be on my desk. Also put away the orb lamp I used to have there.
I know the tv tray is so attractive right? Really need to do something about that some century. Anyway, the vase of feather roses took the place of the angel figurine. Moved around random stuff like pencil sharpaners, my Chrono Cross clock and my fairy coasters, and some Sailor Moon figures that cling to stuff. Next to the lamp where the carosel used to be is the castle! Managed to fit alright! In front of it is my major and favorite Sailor Moon figures. I like how it almost looks like Crystal Tokyo! Not a bad idea to populate the castle with Sailor Moon figures instead of ponies...though it'll be ponies for now with Sailor Moon characters in front.
And the rest of my desk. Arranged more figures. Also bow to my Lunar keychain figures! I'm proud to own those! Actually keep a lot of my favorite stuff on this desk. Like that awesome flower fairies carosel.
Anyway, other stuff I moved about, but those are some of the major stuff. I gotta go! Later!
Work was ugh today. I was feeling...way axious and stuff and work wasn't helping. Was so glad to be done!
Anyway, onto the good! Though I think it might do me good to rant here sometimes. We'll see in the future. Anyway! After work I went to Toys'R'Us with my mom. Needed a gift for my brother. His birhtday is Thursday. Think I found one.
And in usual Megan fashion found stuff for me too! I actually went and took pictures!
First the major purschae! The newest My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic castle, the Crystal Empire castle! Beautiful isn't it? It may be hard to tell, but it lights up on the bottom. Puts patterns of shapes. And comes with my favorite princess, Princess Cadance and Princess Flurry Heart! She's super cute! Of course now I need to find a spot for it...
And now here's more pony stuff! First is a notebook and a back pack. Next, a lunch box and a pencil case, and then more pictures of the backpack!
One thing I found cool was the sides. On the one side is Fluttershy and Twilight flying, and the other the sun. Thought that was cool. Plus it had Cadance!
I'm about broke for this week.

Blah, so tired! I'll be heading to bed soon. Plus I gotta work tomorrow.
As a major Lunar fan I enjoyed it. But it was so different! Some bits were simiar to Lunar Legned, and honestly the other versions of the first game considering they all are simiar in ways. But it kept it refreshing.
In the afterword the author and translator seemed to imply that the other novels would be done. This is all the way from 2010. I hope they still plan to. I'd love to read them! I mean its Lunar! But, realistically its hard to say if they will or not. I mean I guess it depends on how well it sold. Lunar sadly isn't super well known outside of the Lunar community. I mean it is a popular series. But sadly, a lot of people have no idea what it is. Kinda sad, since its so amazing and honestly a classic. PLAY IT! Seriously. Its my absolute favorite series.
And on the subject of Lunar finished Lunar the Silver Star for Sega CD. Onto Lunar Eternal Blue also for Sega CD!
Anyway, finished that off finally. My one complaint mainly was the chapters were way too long! I like shorter ones that I can finish in a sitting.
But since I finished that moved on to "Happily Ever After" by Kiera Cass. Good so far!
Also my bullet journal came yesterday! Set it up and started using it. Its a bit confusing, but it gets easier I think. Just took me a while to get it. I think I rather like it. I did finish everything today. I'll keep using it!

Not a very productive day for me today. But I at least was able to shower (I do it twice a week usually), got in some time on Lunar the Silver Star for Sega CD, and got some reading done.
Don't think I ever did mention what I'm reading now. "Lunar Silver Star Story Volume 1: The Call of the WInd" by Kei Shigema. At first I was meh about it and at times I still am, but for the most part am enjoying it! Love Nash in it! Probably cause he reminds me of my character Kyle. Its a shame they didn't translate the other novels. Though I am proud to own them all!
Zoo is back so been watching that. Its been pretty good! Its kinda neat knowing some of the stuff going on having read the books. Though way different, but they have simiarities and such.
Tonights episode was pretty cool. Though all the ants made me feel all crawly! Plus I think there was a spider on a web near me. It looked like it. Knocked it off. But still felt crawly! Regardless, can't wait for next weeks episode! I love this show!
Happy 4th of July!
Not much going on here for 4th of July. Just the usual. Though my mom and sister are doing a bon fire and doing s'mores. I might go out for a bit. But will be heading to bed soon. Tired and gotta work early. So tired!
I did order myself a bullet journal notebook from Bullet Journal.com. After reading about it on Pauline's blog I poked around about it a bit, and decided I might give it a true. Kinda excited! Gonna get some nice markers for it! I have some, but might get more. Can't wait for it to get here!
Which reminds me, been trying meditation again which I also read about on Pauline's blog! Been wanting to again and had an app been meaning to try. Its meant for kids, but I figured it might be good for me too. Anyway, its Well Beyong Meditation for Kids. I did one and it seemed nice. Have some others I'll be trying as well. As suggested by Pauline I downloaded Calm and Head Space. Also downloaded Calm Down. It seemed like it might be good too. Maybe after this I'll do one. And maybe see what everyone is doing. Then I'll feed my frog and likely head to bed.
Hope everyone's 4th is awesome!

First off as you probably have noticed I changed the layout. Now, I'm sure you may be confused on why it says "Dook Land". That's because its an layout I used for an old site. I decided to re-use it cause I love it. Plus, I probably will be re-using all the old layouts I got. Anyway, features Lina and Gourry from Slayers! Though I will miss the Kyle one.
I also updated the about section and added the past layouts section.
Not much I feel like writing at the moment, so that's all for now!

Yeah, wasn't sure how I wanted to start, so yay random noises!
Anyway...as usual not a whole lot going on. Did just watch the season finale of Sailor Moon Crystal. Was awesome as usual. And that cute smile Chibi Moon did? So cute! And the opening insert? Awesome! They need to release another soundtrack! Hope the next one comes soon! Can't wait!
Ear is slowly getting better. It doesn't feel quite as blocked. And its been doing mini pops. Also made an eye doctor appointment. Gonna get new glasses and maybe some sun glasses. And my one doctor switched my axiety/depression medicine to one I used to take (I had switched cause it was too much, but now I have insruence and what not). Current one I was on wasn't doing much for me. Hopefully it helps.
Bla, I wouldn't mind going to bed...so tired. I slept bad. Plus I went to bed late too. I swear, Sunday's I always sleep bad!
And tomorrow Zoo returns! Woot! Can't wait!
Oh! And I finished "Ghost Boy" by Martin Pistorius. Was quite good! Really enjoyed it! Now, onto "The Heir" by Kiera Cass. Really loving it so far!
Well, that's it for now!
