Hey, what's up? My name's Layla, and my strategy is... Um... I dunno yet. I'm just going to improvise and hope I survive! Oh, and I read Homestuck. So much Homestuck.

It started raining a little while ago. I wasn't sure what to do, but I wound up finding a tree with a hole in it big enough for me to climb into. Maybe not the safest place to be in a thunderstorm, but for the time being I am dry. Well, mostly. I'm just going to wait for this storm to blow over before I make any major decisions.

Okay, wow. It doesn't appear to be clearing up... At all. I think I'd better get out of this tree before it gets hit by lightning or something.

Well, I am officially soaked to the skin. Words cannot describe how wet I am. But, I figured I'd make the most of today, so I made banana-leaf bowls to collect rainwater.

I just heard somebody singing the English version of "Magia" from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. And I thought I was the only one who knew that song! I think I recognize the voice, but I just want to make sure...

It was ridiculously hard to get a fire started in this wet, but I finally managed to find some dry wood. I made a leaf canopy to keep the fire dry, and began roasting marshmallows, the sacred food. I shared some with C-Rex before he went back to his own camp.

Friends, this is a true tragedy. I am very sorry to report that I... Am out of marshmallows.

I found eggs in a bird's nest that I am currently cooking over my fire. I must admit, I do feel guilty about taking the eggs, but food is food, and I'm out of marshmallows. Funny thing about marshmallows, you feel full for a while, and then get hungry again really quickly!

Rain stopped by my campsite. I guess she smelled the marshmallows. It's still raining. If I knew where to find some string, I might try a little fishing. I had a coconut crab earlier. Strange, though, that it wasn't in its burrow. I wonder what happened? Probably got flooded in the storm.

The fire eventually went out, and what? Oh, yes. I am wet again. AGAIN. My little leaf-tent collapsed in the rain. At least it's still warm. The only thing left to do, really, is to wonder why my journal isn't getting soggy.

I saw an Astro Norn talking to some strange gadget. I swear, it looks exactly like a mini-microwave. Better call it a night.

Woken up in the middle of the night. A frog landed on my face.

Woke up again. I think the storm's letting up. That's good. I'm still wet, though. Oh, how I hate being wet.

Didn't get much sleep last night; I woke up multiple times in the middle of the night. The storm is almost gone now, I think.

What little thunder remains now rumbles over more distant hills, like a man saying "And another thing!" five minutes after admitting he's lost the argument.

- Douglas Adams. Yes, I am 100% positive he said that.

I made a shovel... Well, if you can call it a shovel. I found a mostly concave stone and tied it to a branch. I dug a little cave in the muddy hillside. It's small and damp, but when the rain goes away, it will be nice and dry. Until then, however, I remain... Wait for it. Wait for it... Wet. Perhaps I should stop writing multiple short journal entries and write a long one? I'd probably fail spectacularly. I keep digging into the walls, enlarging my cave, which is barely large enough for me to fit into.

I just realized something very sad...

I'm in a hole.

I am exhausted. And my cave is only maybe four feet across and I can't stand up in it. Whatever. It's good enough. I'm going to find some food.

Took some long strips of very fibrous plant tissue to make string and attached that to a stick. Using some insects for bait and a sharp curved stone for a hook. I'm going fishing while it's still raining.

Caught a decent amount of fish, but there is no longer anything dry that I can use to start a fire, and I will NOT be eating it raw. I do remember reading something about the flammability of certain substances, however...

AAH! Run! Everybody RUN!!! Oh God, how can shaving cream be so flammable!?

Okay, so I found some shaving cream which I thought was flammable. I just didn't know HOW flammable. Needless to say, it caused a minor explosion and started a forest fire, but with the rain, the fire was extinguished fairly quickly. My cave was, for the most part, undamaged; mud doesn't burn. I'm just glad I'm not living in a shack or something. I might have some serious problems... As for my fish? Well, it's edible... Sorta like fish jerky. It's really not all that bad, but I'm not going to try that shaving cream stunt again, that's for sure. I suffered a nasty burn on my arm, but it's nothing major.

There's a very troubling beeping noise coming from nearby. I wonder what it is...

It's getting dark, but I can't sleep with that beeping. I'm going to go see if I can figure out what it is and switch it off.

Couldn't pinpoint the source of the beeping, but while I was looking, Lisha told me about some replenishing fruit tree. I didn't believe it at first, but there's no harm in checking.

I saw that Astro Norn again. She seemed really nice; she put something on my burn that REALLY helped, but her face maintained a blank expression the entire time. So weird...

I did a bit more fishing. Didn't catch as many as last time, but these won't be reduced to charred fish jerky. Turns out that replenishing tree was real! Gathered as much as my arms could carry before heading home. That norn who helped me with my burn, I think her name's Mip, is still hanging around.

Mip made a shelter nearby. She's REALLY good at that! The stuff she put on my burn works like a miracle. It's almost completely gone! It stopped raining yesterday, and now it's boiling hot. I am so glad there was still rain when I had that shaving cream explosion... I went to the pond to get water, and I fell in. In retrospect, upon mulling cinematic tropes regarding going to collect water from ponds, this outcome was a virtual certainty. Oh well.

I think Mip might be suffering from amnesia. She doesn't seem to remember building that shelter, or treating the burn on my arm. I'm kinda worried about her, but there isn't exactly anything I can do. Is there even such thing as a treatment for amnesia? I have no idea, but if there is, I sure as heck don't know it.

Apparently my campfire is public now. Eh, I don't mind. Pirate-Rob threw on a log every now and again, and I think my time on the island so far has been, on the whole, beneficial, although I now have a terrible fear of shaving cream... -_-

It appears the storm from when I arrived is now completely gone, although it's still a bit overcast. Ridiculously hot outside, but heat is something I can deal with. With food and water no longer a problem, I've decided to make my camp a bit more comfortable. I wove a hammock out of vines and tied that between two trees. It's probably the most comfortable thing I've sat in since arriving. Strung up a roof of palm leaves, suspended by more vines. I'm going to try and relax now. I just hope nobody flips my hammock while I'm not looking. Then again, who would do that?

I noticed a flier for some resort. It seemed nice enough, but I'm content with my campsite. Besides, I'd never give up my secret... LAST MARSHMA- Oh, now where did it go?

Alright.
NOW I'm out of marshmallows.

Mip gave me some mushrooms that she'd found. I was going to make fish stew and put these in. I also found some tomato plants, which I will use to make a sauce. Now if only I could find some rice.

My hammock keeps rocking back and forth in the wind. It was very relaxing until it blew me out... I'm currently covering a bamboo frame with leaves to try and block out the wind, but the leaves keep blowing away before I get the chance to tie them down securely.

I just found a really weird bug. They're not really spiders, but I don't know what to call them. They have 10 legs and eyes instead of 8, and antennae. They're pretty big, only a bit smaller than my foot. I accidentally stepped on one, and this blue, sweet-smelling substance came out. I don't dare taste it, but I'm using it as ink to colour in my drawing, along with this yellow mucus-like substance that is dripping from their nest. The nest is woven from navy blue fibres, but looks mostly yellow due to the slime, and the bugs have an intricate pattern on their backs that I will try my best to replicate. They're kinda creepy, but kinda cute.

Yesterday was foggy and humid, but today? Rain. Again. And I'm wet. Again. I've had to make a large tent out of tightly woven leaves, just to stay out of the rain long enough to dry off. And when I get dry? OH YES! A frog lands on the top and it all comes crashing down. Again. The good news is I did a bit of fishing. I got enough fish to, hopefully, last me through the storm, mostly dry. Oh, how I hate being wet...

It's stopped raining, finally. I've been having more problems with making a shelter, but Rain's letting me stay with her. Yay!

I really don't know where these spider things are coming from, but they seem to be everywhere now. I don't think they bite, though. We should be fine.
