ATLA and TLK

Being an avid fan of the legendary show Avatar The Last Airbender that aired on Nickelodeon in 2005, i have always been anticipating a sequel to the show after it's four seasons of 61 episodes. I used to, and still do, love that show. It was kind of an Asian mysticism made into a Japanese inspired cartoon.




It's like my all-time favourite show, and this is just gonna be a brief introduction to the show.
The show takes place in a world home to humans, hybrids and spirits. The human world is split up into four nations, the Water Tribe, Fire Nation, Earth Kingdom, and the Air Nomads. Each nation has a distinct society, where some people can manipulate, or 'bend' certain elements. Like for the Water Tribe, some of them can bend water, same with the Fire Nation, Earth and Air. They tend to bend in existing martial arts style.

There is only one person in the whole world that can bend all four elements, or so known as the Avatar. When the Avatar dies, the Avatar spirit would be reincarnated into the next one of the four different nations according to the Avatar Cycle: Fire Nation, Air Nomads, Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom. The Avatar may be born as male or female and is required to master each bending art in it's seasonal order, starting with their birth element. Also, the Avatar can enter what it is known as the Avatar State, where the Avatar is the strongest. Where the Avatar is endowed with the knowledge and abilities of all past Avatars for a certain amount of time. However, if the Avatar gets killed while in the Avatar State, the Avatar reincarnation cycle would cease to exist. The Avatar is also the bridge between the human world and the spirit world.. There are also a total of four seasons.


Referring to my first paragraph, and thankfully, they made a sequel to it called The Legend Of Korra.
Korra is the next Avatar that was reincarnated after Aang. The Legend Of Korra is held in the fictional world of Avatar: The Last Airbender 70 years after the events of that series. The series focuses on Avatar Korra, a seventeen year old girl from the Southern Water Tribe. At the start of the series, she has already mastered all of the elements except for airbending. Thus has to complete her airbending training from her mentor Tenzin, the youngest child of Avatar Aang and Katara. The series is usually held at Republic City, the capital city of the United Republic of Nations. It is a state that emerged after the war in the first series. There is currently two seasons, and the third season is probably coming out in July ^O^

I'm really, really looking forward for it's third season.

2017

Two years of inconsistent blogging. I love blogging, I truly do. There's something about putting feelings and emotions into sentences that really appeal to me. Forgive me, in advance. I won't be blogging very much in the next few months, maybe years, probably, until I have time to sit down and just let it all out. I'm not saying that i'm quitting, but I merely do not have the time for it and it isn't one of my priorities at the moment. I'm working on myself, through academics, art, my social life(?). If it's necessary for you to be updated on how i'm doing, Twitter's the way to go. Everything's there.

Ugh, anyone else sensing that tension and disconnection between you and I? Gosh, I need to "up" my mood a little. HOW'S IT GOING? Life's been great for ya? It's 2017 and I'll be 17 this year. It's freaky how I'm almost considered a young adult when I barely feel like a teenager. I guess that's the scary part of…

Self-Worth

She showed me the importance of individuality. How okay it is to just stick out at certain edges or corners or curves that maybe others can't appreciate. That it's perfectly fine to be bursting with energy that people outright assume it as immaturity, or to have such strong emotions that overflow and fill cracks and openings all around, because that is what makes us individuals. 

update

Pretty late. I am really late. I haven't blogged in such a long time that honestly, it doesn't cross my mind often. This'll be just a short update, i guess.

The usual, school's been stressful. Art, other subjects and stuff. I am thankful that i'm able to handle the stress in a positive manner, most of the time. My health hasn't been really good lately. My knees were awful, they kept hurting and cracking and i had to see a doctor-two, actually. One knee was injured due to an old injury and the other was misaligned with the rest of my leg. Troubling, huh? That was during the first two months of 2017. About a month later, my throat got inflamed, i had a bad throat ulcer infection and it was so difficult to even swallow saliva. Lymph nodes enlarged a whole lot, too. Next month, eye stye. Not so much of a problem, but my lower eyelid grew a stye and the upper lid swelled. Healed afterwards, but currently I have another swollen eyelid. Gross. Kinda makes it hard to o…
