#darker katara is really interesting  #a:tla feelings 

i finished my first ever watch of avatar the last airbender and now i have a lot of feelings, but it seems silly to talk about them cos everyone watched this show a million years ago and are also watching legend of korra, which i don’t really wanna watch, but i mean i guess i’ll eventually watch it when i have the energy to.

so yeah. that’s what i’ve been doing since graduation ended. that and working. LOL i really should start reading again everything i kept on pause.

"There’s a kind of political corollary to this. We’ve all heard the expression “one person, one vote,” used to promote the idea that every human being deserves a voice in the political process. Well, I like literature that’s “one person, one truth”—that each person’s experience, no matter how marginal, has the power to tell us something vital about what it means to be human."

Two lovers, forbidden from one another — a war divides their people and a mountain divides them apart — build a path to be together…

Yeah, I forget the next couple lines, but then it goes:

Tag: Five Things I Like About Myself

Once you get this you have to say five things you like about yourself, then send it to ten of your favorite followers (tagged by sampaguitagirl)

  1. Someone once affirmed me for being critical, yet kind. I carry that affirmation in my heart and I always try to do this in every single thing I do.
  2. I feel like I have a heightened sense of understanding of people. I empathize really easily, even if I don’t agree.
  3. I write and speak well because it’s important to me to say what I mean, and mean what I say. When it comes down to it, I am particularly proud of my writing.
  4. When I commit to something, I do it 100%. I hardly ever - if at all - half-ass what I’m doing. I’ve had moments of over-commitment, but I always try to push myself because I don’t want to let down those who rely on me.
  5. I’m funny sometimes, I think. LOL

I tag: idk. LOL do it if you want to, and say that I tagged you.

Summer Solstice

I haven’t been doing as much as I thought I wanted to do for the summer solstice, because having all those hours in the day seemed really nice. Earlier, it looked quite overcast and at first I was pretty bummed that the longest day of the year would be cloudy in Berkeley. But the sun crept out and it reminds me of summertime in Dublin. Part of the day could and would be overcast, to the point of rain, but by evening the sun would be out drying all the wet. Then, the sun would finally set close to 10 pm. It felt like a suspended evening to have the sun set so late, then rise in the around 3:30/4 am.

Funny thing, the idea of suspended time.
