I actually really love Avatar: The Last Airbender

I'm not afraid to admit it; I'm quite proud of it, in fact.

Second semester is here! I totally did not see it coming so quickly, but I have good grades! So all is well! Whee! Ooh! I started drawing again! I kinda deteriorated, but I will get better! I'm so excited. :3

I'm also very excited to see how Avatar: The Last Airbender will end. Toast and I just finished Book 2 yesterday. Toast and I are Zuko fans. :D I really hate the canon pairing of Zuko and Mei though. She's too mellow and boring. Zuko needs someone with enough feelings for both of them since Zuko's kinda mellow too. Katara's slightly annoying when she's angry, so she can't be with anyone but Aang. Aang will love her for just being her silly self because he's too blind nice, so they'll go perfectly together. Although, she's actually competent, so I guess I can't say anything about Katara. I actually like her a bit. And one thing is kinda funny: Sokka has kissed more girls than any other character in the show, but he's the one who's been made fun of about not having any girlfriends the most often. :P Also, one of my favorite characters in that show is Uncle Iroh. He's hilarious and awesome. His voice actor is also really good. But enough about Avatar, how's life been to you guys lately?
This is not the most flattering picture of him. It's just the brightest one with him not being uber angry.

Beneficial Organizations and Fear

That's a screenshot. I dunno why it didn't save the right size, but I'm sorry about the graininess; I had to enlarge it. Clicking on it will let you see it the size I wanted it to be. It's really fun, and you donate rice to places in need of food, like Haiti.

The World Wildlife Fund saves wildlife. Donating to them would be nice.
Look at what they did to Paris! You can see that the pandas are roped off.

Now to FEAR: Meme stolen from now we're living in the future.

Cross out the things you’re afraid of and put you’re score at the top.
  1. the dark
  2. staying single forever
  3. being a parent (I'd be an awesome parent. Harry Potter for bedtime stories!)
  4. giving birth (Geh! It's not so much the pain as the fear of killing it or the unattractiveness you acquire if you don't exercise the pregnancy weight you gained)
  5. being myself in front of others (Trust me, being me is the most awesome thing I'll ever do.)
  6. open space (WTH?)
  7. closed space
  8. heights (Holy crud, really high heights are frightening!)
  9. dogs (Only if they're rabid...?)
  10. birds
  11. fish
  12. spiders (For some reason, no. Unless they're venomous or just too large to squash.)
  13. flowers or other plants (WTH?)
  14. being touched (By pedophiles and strangers, yes. Hugs and stuff are fine.)
  15. fire (I want to be able to fire-bend.)
  16. deep water (I can swim.)
  17. snakes (Oh. My. Goodness am I afraid of snakes. Constrictors, venomous ones, etc. They all freak me out.)
  18. silk (What on Earth is that gonna do to you?)
  19. the ocean (It's a wonderland of life. Who am I to argue with Mother Nature? Even if it's home to parasites, jellyfish, poisonous animals, sea snakes, and all sorts of lovely beasties.)
  20. failure
  21. success
  22. thunder/lightning (I really don't understand the thunder problem. It's just the noise lightning makes.)
  23. frogs/toads (I don't understand this one either. I think they're adorable. Lizards, too.)
  24. my boyfriends/girlfriends dad (Don't have a boyfriend. Don't really want one.)
  25. boyfriends/girlfriends mom (Don't have a boyfriend. Don't really want one.)
  26. rats (I'm just afraid of the diseases and general gross they carry around. Not so much the messengers of death themselves.)
  27. jumping from high places (Oh my god. Nevereverever.)
  28. snow (Love it. A lot.)
  29. rain (Love it. A lot.)
  30. wind (Love it, but only when it's cool/cold. Preferable cold.)
  31. crossing hanging bridges (Yes! There were so many of these half-rotted things in China; I had no idea why some people were shaking them on purpose. Just walk across them as quickly as possible.)
  32. death (Not particularly. I just wanna know what happens to you afterward. Crowding around in some eternal mosh pit doesn't sound fun after the first hour.)
  33. heaven (If there was the slimmest chance that there was actually a place of eternal peace, why would you be afraid of it?)
  34. being robbed
  35. falling (Holy schmoly.)
  36. clowns (I understand they're trying to make a living, but this smile is only here to make them feel better. I don't think terror is my ideal way to be entertained.)
  37. dolls (Those freaking human- and baby-shaped dolls scare the crap out of me. Figuratively, but omfg. They're creepy, man! D: )
  38. large crowds of people (I don't think you understand what a "large crowd of people" is unless you go to China. And then cram onto a boat. On tour.)
  39. men (Only the pedos and rapists.)
  40. women (Only the pedos and rapists.)
  41. having great responsibilities
  42. doctors, including dentists (What's wrong with them? All they do is try to help you.)
  43. tornados (I don't really know. There's never really been any threat of them in my state.)
  44. hurricanes
  45. incurable diseases (No disease is incurable.)
  46. sharks (Stop making like a seal and they'll leave you alone.)
  47. friday the 13th (Stupid superstition.)
  48. ghosts
  49. poverty
  50. halloween (WTH?)
  51. school
  52. trains (Oh yeah, trains are totally going to run through my walls just to get at me. What kind of a fear is this??)
  53. odd numbers (W. T. F. )
  54. even numbers (WTH.)
  55. being alone (A little, actually. I've always been with someone, and having a twin just makes you all the more dependent, I guess.)
  56. becoming blind (Slightly. I'd miss colors, and if I were in chaos, who'd tell me I'm in danger?)
  57. becoming deaf (I already have glasses. If my sight deteriorates and I'm deaf...)
  58. growing up/old
  59. creepy noises in the night (Isn't this the main reason people are scared of the dark?)
  60. bee stings
  61. not accomplishing my dreams/goals (First try, then worry.)
  62. needles
  63. blood
  64. dinosaurs (If faced with a rampaging, carnivorous one, maybe.)
  65. the welcome mat (Pedos?)
  66. high speed
  67. throwing up (I know it's nasty and the stomach acid dissolves your teeth and stuff, but really?)
  68. falling in love
  69. super secrets (I don't understand what this is. Is it like "your dad's a spy and you never knew and now you have to avenge his death", or is it "I've been cheating on you for the last few years, I've never actually loved you, so I'll leave you impregnated with my child and your furious parents"?)
I am afraid of 10 things. How 'bout you?

If you repost this, it’s been requested that you title it “I’m afraid of _ out of 69 common fears”
If you get more than 30, I strongly recommend some counseling.
If you get more than 20, you’re paranoid. (Wait, this isn't even the right case to use the word "paranoid" in!)
If you get 10-20, you are normal.
If you get 10 or less, you’re fearless.
People who don’t have any are liars.

Adios, amigas!

Bad? Day

So like, good day and bad day?
Good-ish: Drama performance went okay; I sucked badly at remembering my lines, Been There, Done That's Wolfie actually had to prompt me, but I guess I acted well enough. Why couldn't my Drama teacher have just let us perform before the break? I was so ready. Then she postponed it and I stank. Everyone liked it because they didn't know how badly I failed. Chorus had a nearly-deaf substitute teacher and I just drew my friend's character the hour away. I tried eggnog for the first time ever.
Bad: The eggnog tasted like liquid banana pudding until cinnamon greatly improved the flavor. My brace brackets cut little pockets of infection inside my mouth. I also failed at making soup. My family lied unconvincingly through their teeth and said it was good. I actually felt awful that my mistake had to make the rest of my family suffer. I wish they'd tell me their honest opinion.
Good: Red Sunshine's post made my day. That post was simply freaking beautiful.

Life has really bad ups and downs. I see what you're doing, Life, and I don't like it. You give someone an okay day and then make it awful and compensate for it with something simply amazing. Or it's just me. Most likely.
Bear with me guys. I'm bloody self-centered.
