IMPORTANT, DO NOT WALK THROUGH THE PORTAL.
READ THIS BEFORE YOU WALK THROUGH THE PORTAL:
I pray that you see this journal and grab it before walking through. I will leave it right at the foot of the portal so it’s the first thing you see. Khandi, if you’re reading this and I haven’t told you about it then I’m dead. I’ve accepted my fate and know that’s what happened. I’m sorry this didn’t work out but I think once the University finds out what I’ve done, you’ll get the full grant and for a 23 year old, that’s not bad. (Plus maybe they won’t close down our lab.)
You’ll notice above that this is Day 8 for me. To you, if you were on time to work today it will be about 8:00 am on Oct. 20th, 2015. I did the math, and for every minute that passes on your side, 4,320 minutes pass on Candyland side. I also did a number of observations and filled this journal for all seven days prior, but it rained last night and the top pages of the book were ruined and turned to sugar.

Anthony Dargay PHD. Studied and taught at the University of Minnesota, Mankato. His findings helped to further encourage M Theory as well as String Theory. Professor Dargay claimed to have the secret to Inter-dimensional Travel. He has been published in numerous scientific journals. He went missing on October 20th of 2015 along with his assistant Khandi Albright. Attempts by family members to collect his personal belongings from the University of Minnesota have been denied by the US Army with no reason given. A very questionable action.
Ben Revermann lives in southern Minnesota with his wife and children. He is currently working on his Associates degree and will be moving towards his Bachelors degree in English Literature. He has been published a number of times and hopes to one day make his living using the written word.
