  1. I need to update this more often...

  2. Hello there everyone, happy start of February! Or, to another extent, happy very very late January! (Time zones and such). So I've wanted to start a blog like this for a while now, and given how I've been on Canterlot for quite a while I guess you could say I feel more comfortable in doing this as opposed to other ways to blog, for now anyway. If you didn't take the time to read the mountain of a description for this blog, (And I seriously do not blame you) then I'll quickly explain that this blog will essentially be a dump or, nicer word, for some of my random thoughts and occasional musings. I didn't want to start up a blog just to do that though, and given this is a blog in which I discuss things that I've learned and things that I'm thinking about, I'd like to possibly raise some discussions on the topics I start in these. With any hope I'd love for you guys to pitch in with your opinions on the subject matter, and maybe we can all learn things we didn't know and just have a pleasant time doing it So yeah!...New starts, as the title says. It's an admittedly a rather poorly timed subject matter given how New Years was an exact month ago but, January can be seen as a month of reflection I suppose. Oh and I just realised this blog will go up on Chinese New Year, so that was rather unforseen...yet awesome at the same time! (Happy Chinese New Year to anybody out there celebrating by the way). Can ya tell this was gonna be rambly before you clicked on it? Okay, now to the point! With the New Year come and gone and resolutions made and or not made I've been thinking recently on starting things fresh and new, and not in a "clear the desk, throw everything out the window" sense but "maybe read some more and not mutilate the desk" sense. I may just be paying more attention this year but I've noticed a trend in people I know, friends and family alike. A lot of them have taken some big and or small leaps towards decisions this past month, in like a variety of ways. Some people I know are producing more creative works, some people are exploring aspects of themselves and what makes them happy to a greater extent, and even some have just been obsessed recently with bettering themselves as part of either their New Year's resolutions, or just some impulse that came upon them one day. When New Year rolled in for me it was a busy time to say the least; what with loads of school work and a new environment to get back into, given I only started at my new school this year. However I tried to go in with my head held high and vowed to "Be the best me I could be!" and all that good stuff, but now that the month's went and gone I personally feel a tad, burnt out. It makes me wonder how some people (Including myself) can become so fixated on the idea of a new start that they feel they have to totally re-evaluate everything around them and to a greater extent, themselves. However I'm not condemning anybody's ideas of possibly bettering themselves, far from it; but when I look around at some people and myself and saw them burnt out from school work or other life stuff they had vowed to change, and then I looked at some people who seem relatively happy with themselves by the end of January I continued to ponder if this whole stigma of "New Year, New Start" is either misinterpreted by people, or simply looked at with such overwhelming enthusiasm that people can miss the point of it. Again I'm not condemning the whole concepts of "New Starts", because I think they can be a very powerful way for somebody to turn themselves or a situation around for the better; but for me anyway I've found it best to try and take things as they come, and if there is an opportunity for my own improvement that I should go for it when I'm ready, and not feel like I need to jump on every revelation and discovery of myself and the world around me and holding on like there'll never be another one. Also I wonder now if "Conor Colton's Random Ramblings on etc" would have been a more appropriate title for this...hmm...food for thought I guess. Either way, if you made it to the end of this blog, I salute you good Sir or Madame! And I hope you enjoyed it and maybe took something from it. If not, it was worth a try I suppose. Now comes the part where I wanna hear from YOU guys (Y'know if that's cool with you). Did you have any New Years resolutions/revelations? Have you endeavoured to make some decisions this year to positively effect yourself and those around you? If so, how have things been going with that? If none of those questions apply to you then, I hope you enjoyed the blog, and feel free to comment on whatever you feel would be relevant to this sort of topic. I can't wait to hear them CC, out!

    Once again....

    Heya Lilia. I know you don't know me very well, and we've never really talked but, I wanted to hopefully share some insight on this situation that may be of use to you. A year or so back there was a situation like this for somebody close to me, so while I can't empathise entirely on this matter I'd like to try the best I can to hopefully give some helpful input. First of all I want you to know that things look bleak now, and that's okay. If we never went through hardship in our lives we wouldn't come out as the stronger, smarter individuals, and even from what you're saying and how you're communicating your emotions I know you are a strong and smart individual, and I know it's asking a lot to trust me but, things WILL get better. In regards to the matter at hand, I'm very sorry to hear about it. It definitely sounds sucky, that much is already established, so in my opinion it'd be best to look at the situation not as "Why has this happened or what's wrong with me?" but as "What can I do about this and how can I go about doing it?". Things will get better if the steps are taken to make it better in my opinion. I can't speak for anybody involved in this whole business, only thing I can speak of is what I know from experience of seeing situations like this and experiencing feelings of unrequited love as well. I'm sure you're right in the reasons why somebody would wish to be with you, and I'm sure you are a great listener and a great mother, otherwise you wouldn't even be worried in the first place (Which would be far more scary I might add). You have to realize that these are good qualities that make up YOU, and that you define YOU and anybody who doesn't love you for YOU isn't worth pursuing for a relationship. I know it's easy to think you're somewhat at fault for all these events taking place, but with time and reflection I'm sure you'll be able to see for yourself that you are an individual, a unique and ultimately beautiful person, and that you shouldn't let anybody take that way from you, regardless of devoted time or connection or anything. From what you've said it sounds like this relationship is somewhat of a handle on you, and I would honestly advise that you don't let yourself be in a situation where you're finding yourself dependant on somebody who won't love you for you, I've seen people try and work that way before, and it doesn't work in the long run, ever. My advice would be basically, don't make somebody your priority if you're only an option to them. It's okay to be scared now, and it's okay to feel bad (again if you were being totally nonchalant THEN I'd be worried) there is likely some rough times ahead, and it won't be easy, but in my opinion you have to build a resilience within yourself. From the way you've talked about life, and your son, and everything on here it's clear you have an acute sense of compassion and appreciation, and that's good, those'll carry you far, so long as you use them wisely. As for the best option right now, in regards to your question, I would advise you do what you would judge as best for your son. That doesn't mean you exclude yourself of any comfort though, quite the opposite. I commend you for saying you'll bring your son with you if it ever comes to having to leave, and I do believe you have the right attitude to be able to take care of him. If it's an issue of practicality, like living arrangements and or ways to live then I wouldn't object (nor would anybody with half a brain) to reaching out to trusted individuals. Friends, family, community officials and workers, people who do honestly have your best interest at heart. Don't be afraid to step outside of comfortable confines, life's waaaay too short to live it looking through a window, as opposed to being outside. Try and look at things in terms of how you can do good by your son. You've displayed wonderful, caring values in how you're speaking, so instil those on your son through your actions, be a strong individual, and if it comes down to it a strong independent individual. Don't think of this as the end of something, if anything this has the potential to be the start of something great for you and your son in my opinion, even more so given how he's soo young. I know it sounds corny but honestly if you work on your strengths, and do what's best for you and your son then things will work out. There's a wide road ahead for the two of you, and it's scary, and uncertain, but every big step in life is (I think anyway). The world will always welcome you back, regardless of how long you've felt disconnected from it. Listen, I'm sorry if I just rambled a lot here but after reading your post I couldn't bring myself to just go about my day. I spoke my God-honest opinion on all this given what I know (Which may be very limited for all I know) but all I can hope for is that you find it helpful. Whether you wish to take any, some, or all of it on board is up to you, and I trust you're a smart enough individual to figure things out Best Regards to you and your son, Lilia. If you'd like to talk, outside of staff stuff, my door's always open. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you ever want to. But, regardless, best of luck.
  7. Christmas Break starts here! Let's kick it into high gear! Happy Holidays everypony!

    Heya Lilihierax, sorry to say to you but this isn't the place for work in progress characters. Given you want to apply a Peryton character I'd suggest either looking into the Free For All Roleplay section, the Crossover Roleplay section, or the Canterlot Chronicles section for Roleplay we have here. If you want to transfer all you've done here into an actual character application you can do that here: http://www.canterlot.com/forum/366-chronicles-applications/ Sorry for any confusion. If you have any questions on what to do or where to go from here, feel free to send me or any of the staff here a Private Message, we'll get you on your way

      WOW That is one heck of a glitch XD

  11. December the 1st, the countdown has begun!

  12. A lot to say, yet saying nothing. There's Conor's random musing for you.

  13. With his back firmly pressed against the somewhat comforting bark of a nearby tree, Sterling felt he only had one real choice in this situation. If his extended hoof could be described as anything it would likely have been compared to a large wooden plank, seemingly too long to even keep upright with just one hoof supporting it. Regardless he rigidly and briefly shook this creatures paw; that last thought sending more unpleasant thoughts into his mind than it had any right to. He would have gulped again if he wasn't practically breathless. Also what the heck does a mid-pleasure even mean?! He was very, very confused right now. "No no...pl-pleasure's all mine, Errare..."...the name didn't exactly roll off his tongue with gaiety. He felt he couldn't avoid the obvious any more, and was oddly compelled by the creature's seemingly sweet smile, "...Why...why did you uh...freak me out?...And...why are you...here, standing, in a park...with me?" he said somewhat frantically, picking his words wisely.
  14. The white pegasus stallion couldn't help but chuckle in response to Sage's self-realization of her own ramblings, and somehow little bits of personality amidst the conversation made this seemingly boring task all the more eventful. Her talk of older stallions gave him pause. Colton was still young by adult pony standards but this dry spell of adventuring lasted for much longer than it should have, yet oddly enough it didn't feel like it. Compared to past escapades and crusades he and his avian companion went on, the time in which they were out of commission seemed to fly by a lot quicker; which was strange considering this absence from excitement lasted longer than any one of their jobs that had come before. It made him wonder about an every-ticking clock of sorts, hovering around him and driving him forward constantly, a fixed reminder that would occasionally prompt him to pursue seemingly random acts of adventure, and he even had the small cuckoo bird, or at least an equivalent by his side in the form of Sparks. "Funny thing is, one of these days I may end up becoming one of those older stallions that like to talk. I'm pretty much halfway there on that description already, just need the factor of old age to kick in one of these days." he chuckled somewhat remorsefully but without a hint of sorrow at all, "Makes me feel like a bother already, that I'd be going into fine establishments like yours and badgering the ear off some poor young mare." he shrugged with a sincere smile in Sage's direction. Before he could continue to ramble and contradict himself by doing so Sparks gave him an almost playful tap across the ear with his minuscule wing. Colton turned and tilted his head quizzically, being met with a straight point of Sparks' wing towards a the book, as if it were some form of stick or presentational equipment. The stallion leaned down towards the book, looking all the more confused, "...Sparks there's nothing here." he commented. With a seemingly large amount of distaste for his master's negligence, the young sparrow swooped down and began to lift the pages; backwards. Colton felt the need to interject, "Aw c'mon buddy we just went through all of those pa-" he was promptly silenced as Sparks raised a wing, as if to say 'Give me a second'. Said second passed and the tiny bird clamped a claw down on a certain page, pointed at a rather familiar symbol, "-...Oh." Colton remarked in a rather embarrassed fashion. It was at this point he wondered how he could have missed it. Did he just lose himself in his thoughts? Has he ever been so careless before? Did Sage notice? There was an air of professionalism wanted to keep up but, it would be safe to say he didn't want to be seen as a fool for the sake of not being seen as one. He locked his eyes back and forth between the mare and the bird, the bird and the mare, before finally clearing his throat and pointing, "Nice find little guy." The seal was there alright, clear as day, and the family name, inscribed in rough early Equestrian was written below. He attempted to translate: "...Family of...many mysterious herbs..." he facehooved. Sparks quickly reassured him, pointing to a bit more information. Colton read again, "Ever....Free..." he blinked a few times then turned to Sage.
