A Skewed Perception of Modern Beautyokay, so I feel like I need to do a body image/ media rant right now, especially since I just got back home from shopping and it's depressed me a lot.A Skewed Perception of Modern Beauty3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm just so fucking sick of the media forcing girls to compare themselves to each other. Honestly, I am. This is coming from a girl who has struggled with weight and severe self esteem issues since 4th grade. Ever since I hit puberty, I've had radios and TV's and magazines telling me that I'm not pretty enough. After eight years of this, it really wears you down. It's gotten to a point where I can't even go shopping without just sitting in the changing room and crying my eyes out because I have to settle for everything.
I'm 5'5", I have natural curves, and I weigh around 150 lbs. The doctor says I'm at a healthy weight: not really overweight and not underweight. But how can I feel healthy when every image I see on billboards and adverts and movies and tabloids tells me that I'm fat and that I need to be "fixed", when, in real

"Stop looking so sheepish, Benjamin- for christ's sake, you're making me feel awkward!"
"I'm making you feel awkward? Oh I'm so sorry for embarrassing you with my insecurities."
"We promised each other it wouldn't be complicated."
"Yes we did, and I want to, but... oh god..."
"I suppose we should try and make this romantic..."
"What are you doing?"
"Taking of your shirt, tosspot."
"That's your idea of romantic?"
"Shit, this button's stuck."
"Well don't break it!"
"Then you take it off!"
"See, how hard was that? There, you look handsome without it- stop fidgeting!"
"Christ, okay, okay! Jesus, stop being so bossy, you're ruining the mood-"
"What mood, Benjamin? You're bumbling like an idiot and I'm frustrated!"
"And this is helping how?"
"Exactly! God, this isn't working. We'll make sure to be drunken next time we even attempt this."

Bolin and EskaJust to kick out the last journal... here you have a screenshot of Bolin and Eska ! I know it's a bit late for posting this, Bryan published it in his tumblr about 4 days ago... i haven't checked it lately...Bolin and Eska2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hmm... interesting... this could approve BolinxEska theory... xD. But, i just cant ship Bolin and Eska because... you know, Bolin is all energetic-goofy-GORGEOUS and Eska seems like the "Mai" of Legend of Korra.
Who knows, maybe a nice girl is behind that "androgynous creepiness"
And another interesting this to note is the background. I does not look like the south pole to me, it's more like they where in republic city. But both of them are wearing that big winter coats; it looks like the South pole has had a lot of reconstruction in the last 70 years...
What do you think about this?
Oh, and here you have a fan made animation based on that screenshot

Written by "American Born Chinese" creator Gene Luen Yang with art by Gurihiru Studios, the three-part graphic novel series wraps in September -- but that doesn't mean it's the end of Avatar Aang's adventures.what happened to zuko's mother?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This weekend at the American Library Association, Dark Horse announced Yang and Gurihiru will return for a second "Avatar: The Last Airbender" graphic novel series called "The Search," which explores the biggest unsolved mystery in "Avatar" lore: what happened to Prince Zuko's mother?
CBR News spoke with Yang, a longtime "Avatar: The Last Airbender" fan, about his work on "The Search," wrapping up "The Promise, his feelings about "Legend of Korra," the challenge of linking the two shows and their characters together and the return of Princess Azula.

Aside from worldly doom, I hope everyone is enjoying their winter break! I'm sure excited--except, I won't really be any less busy that I was. Got about 7 paintings to do between now and January 10th. I'm crazy.
Enjoy your break kids. Snuggle, eat chocolate, watch Les Miserables. And I don't care what holiday you celebrate, or you don't celebrate one at all (SEASONS GREETINGS!)-- Just have fun.

JACK FROST IS REAL!!!Okay, so I know this might be really weird and kind of childish for some people but I think he is! Here's the story why I suddenly have this conclusion. The other night I was talking to my sister who loves rise of the guardians, she told me that one night as she was checking her deviant art that one of her friends had said something that she had found interesting. Her friend said that she had another friend that loved the ROTG version of Jack Frost. So just to make her happy she went outside and said " Jack Frost if you are real put some frost on the ground tomarrow." And the next day there was. So then, my sister said that she had done the same thing only "Jack Frost if you are real put some frost on my window." The next day there was. Plus she had checked all of the windows in our house twice and there had only been frost on HER WINDOW!! So I found this pretty intersting, that night, I said "Jack Frost if you are real, give me a sign that you are real also let me see you in my dreamsJACK FROST IS REAL!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
