This probably sounds horrible, but I can't be like her. I don't want to be like her. A Cylon? Well, half-Cylon, at least. I just can't. I can't believe in the Cylon God, or all these prophecies about me, or even being a Raptor pilot like her.

People give you looks, you know. "Oh, you're the freak daughter of the Cylon on Galactica." Well, maybe people in ROTC don't, or at least they're nicer about it, but it still bothers me. I can still imagine it.

I just want to be a girl. Just a girl. Just a girl who Joseph Adama might want to marry date and not be ashamed of. Dad, I know you're reading this and you're probably thinking that it's all okay, but I know what you had to go through to be with Mom. I don't want Joseph to go through any of that to be with me.

So, I made a decision. I'm going to work harder on studying up on the Scrolls of Pythia and the gods -- especially the one I'm named after. I'm going to officially switch over from studying Raptors to learning how to be a Viper jock, once I'm old enough and ready enough to do it.

It's little things, I know, but I just want to be me. A human. Not a freak.

Please don't tell Mom until I'm ready to talk to her, okay guys? Thanks.

Love, Hera
