Hey there, diary. It's me, Jerome Valeska. The one and only Prince of Chaos, the Clown Prince of Gotham. Today, I want to share with you some tales from my time at Haly's Circus.

Childhood Woes

Growing up in that circus was quite the experience. My mother was a snake charmer and my father...well, let's just say he wasn't around much. But hey, who needs parents when you've got a whole circus full of freaks to keep you company?

Finding My Calling

I always knew I was destined for greatness - or madness, depending on how you look at it. And Haly's Circus was where it all began for me. Every night under that big top filled me with a sense of exhilaration like no other.

The Incident

Ah yes, the incident that changed everything for me. You see, dear diary, sometimes life throws us curveballs we never saw coming - like getting framed for murder by your own twin brother! But hey, what doesn't kill you only makes you stranger.

Embracing the Madness

After that little mishap (thanks again bro), I fully embraced my true self - the clown prince of crime himself! Oh how liberating it felt to finally let go and give in to the chaos within me.

Rise to Infamy

From then on out it was nothing but chaos and mayhem as I carved out my own path in this twisted city called Gotham. They called me insane...but really all I did was show them their own inner demons reflected back at them.

So there you have it diary - just a glimpse into the mind of Jerome Valeska: madman extraordinaire and master manipulator supreme! Until next time...keep smiling 😉
