Abandoning Preciousness
The most important thing about creating art is to create. If you want to be at ease with creativity, you have to immerse yourself in it, and do a little bit every day. Even if that little bit is only to take five minutes while waiting for the bus to come and do a gesture drawing of a man reading his book across the street from you. Or to take the moment to scribble down a thumbnail rough sketch of a concept that occurs to you. Do a little bit each day. Train your brain to think visually.
It can be difficult at first, accustoming yourself to make this small bit of time, because you’ll think:
“I don’t have enough time for it.”
“Art is hard!”
“I’m not good enough yet for that piece I’ve always wanted to do.”
or
“I’m stuck. Artist’ block.”
These are all excuses. Yes art IS hard. Yes, you might not be good enough yet to do that masterwork that you’ve been dreaming of, but let me le

Abortion
     -That's right.  I'm writing a rambling about abortion.  This rambling will discuss the arguments and facts surrounding the evils of abortion and how it all links to pornography and contraception.  However, I'm not going to say ANYTHING religious in this rambling.  Nope!  I want to ensure you that I will say nothing religiously biased by speaking through the lips of science, meditation and personal opinion. References to evidence, like statistics, I provide will be marked with a number in parentheses and a link provided to the source in the author's comments.-
     Abortion has become a topic of much debate ever since it's start from the Roe v. Wade case in 1973.  Defenders of the unborn (Pro-Lifers) and defenders of a woman's right to choose (Po-Choicers) have clashed for years, each making legislative counter attacks against the other.   Arguments

A Priceless Future
A Priceless Future.
Pretty soon we'll need to make payments
Just to be able to walk the pavement.
This added to the taxes on our bank statements.
Proves that any sort of personal attainment,
Will be shared with the government agents.
It’s blatant, we‘re a part of a money laundering arrangement.
Of which there is an infinite number of replacements.
Who are praying and waiting for your disengagement.
Longing for the day that you will become complacent.
Because a filled position in this day in age will always be vacant.
I call this, the reincarnation of enslavement.

Mai's Ramblings - Sokkla
Mai on... Sokkla!
"Most popular support for the various Avatar: The Last Airbender pairings is directly based on the attractiveness of the couple in question, so it comes as no surprise that a speculatory romance between Sokka of the Water Tribe and Fire Princess Azula has captured many minds and hearts.
"Of his friends Sokka is most likely ACTUALLY THERE'S NO DOUBT I'M JUST SAYING THAT TO SOUND MORE SOPHISTICATED the biggest skirt-chaser of the bunch but then he actually has a good excuse for it OTHER THAN THE TYPICAL 'BOYS ONLY WANT ONE THING' MY PARENTS TRIED TO GET ME TO BE OPEN TO WITH ZUKO because all of the women he tried to score with either wound up leaving him or dying or both except for Suki at the end of the war but she only made it safely to home base because the spirits in charge of Sokka's bad luck confused her with Ty Lee and sent to the wrong girl to jail. I mean you have the melodramatic Princess Yue who Sokka lost for the first time because she was enga

Mai's Ramblings - Maiko
Mai on... Maiko!!!
"So for some reason out of all the ships on Avatar: The Last Airbender my own romance with Zuko has received a completely undeserving amount of attention, about 86 percent of which is overwhelmingly negative, even though we both really just wanted to snuggle together without being interrupted. So fine, let's by all means go over it and get it out of the collective system of the whole world plus Ty Lee.
"I met Zuko when I was just a little girl with ribbons in my hair OH SO CUTE NO WAIT I'M UGLY and hanging out with his psychopathic sociopathic inhuman THAT MIGHT BE REDUNDANT little sister Azula. Now you have to keep in mind that I was a shy little thing back then and didn't like to talk at all although I've gotten a little better at it but back then my favored method of communication was running and hiding. I would go over to the palace to play games with OR MAYBE JUST GET LIT ON FIRE BY Azula and her other friend Ty Lee and I started seeing Zuko around a litt

Mai's Ramblings - Azutara
Mai on... Azutara!
"The Avatar world has more than its share of strong, proactive women, and naturally quite a few of them developed intense rivalries with each other. One of the more amusing was between the two dominant females on each side of the War, the Waterbender Katara and the Fire Princess Azula.
"Katara and Azula WHO BOTH SEEM UNUSUALLY FOND OF THE LETTER 'A' have such a stunning number of similarities BESIDES THAT 'A' THING that one could be forgiven for wondering if the Spirits' original intention for one of the girls was to be the classic evil opposite for the other and while most would peg Katara as the original and Azula as said sinful clone because Katara is self-righteous and pretty IF YOU GO FOR THAT TYPE OF LOOK AND BY NOW YOU SHOULD KNOW I MOST LIKELY DON'T and Azula was EVEN I'LL ADMIT a horrible person with a talent for physical and personal destruction at least Azula never took the time to torture the supposed love of her life with a 'hard to get' ro

Mai's Ramblings - Kataang
Mai on... Kataang.
"Take the two most cavity-carving twits in the show, buckle them both in chastity belts, and you have the main 'ship' of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
"Aang is an airbending freak with no hair and a body build like my little brother WHO'S TWO YEARS OLD, but he has a personality that could favorably be compared to an affectionate puppy so he naturally lights up Katara's radar like a firetruck with its siren set to 11. Katara was dark-skinned, exotic, as curved as a lamppost, and uninterested in getting some, so naturally the romance didn't progress much until season 3 when she suddenly discovered America and puberty set in.
"By that point, the two should have looked more like bunnies than humans, but my boyfriend showed up at their house and asked if he could stay 'til he cleared things up with his folks, so all the romance was put on hold until Zuko was no longer shuffling through the house in his Spongebob boxers.

Mai's Ramblings - Azuko
Mai on... Azuko!
"No one can deny that the Fire Nation's royal family was more messed up than a romance between a Bison and a Lemur, but one of the sickest conflicts was between Zuko and Azula, the siblings heirs of Fire Lord Ozai.
"Zuko and Azula were the only two offspring AND BELIEVE ME TWO WAS ENOUGH FOR THAT MARRIAGE of Fire Lord Ozai and the mysterious Mother slash Angel slash Freudian Excuse slash Unresolved Plot Point SLASH FREQUENT REASON FOR WHINING Ursa, who split up due to the most epic difference of opinion ever regarding the appropriate ways to discipline a child. As a result Zuko grew up always remembering the person he had been when his mother disappeared which was a cute but rather naive little prince while Azula flourished without anyone around to object to her habit of torturing small animals and older brothers and friends and servants and various members of military command THAT'S THE SECOND TIME I'VE GONE ON LIKE THAT BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF GROUND TO COVER HER

Mai's Ramblings - Teoph

"Fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender will exploit any and all possible connections between the characters as a basis for a 'ship', but by far the most politically incorrect example of this practice is a speculated romance between Toph Bei Fong and Teo of the Northern Air Temple.
"Now to begin with the Northern Air Temple isn't quite a Northern AIR TEMPLE nowadays because as we all know all the Air Nomads were killed by Zuko's family WELL THEY DID MISS ONE BUT WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE IT'S NOT LIKE ONLY ONE PACIFIST MONK CAN DO ANY REAL DAMAGE a long time ago because Fire Lord Sozin was really mad that Avatar Roku got to hang out with some Airbenders and he didn't and that must have really grated on Sozin because he had that unhealthy obsession with living Roku's life and so in his anger he used the power of the Great Comet to jetpack some Firebending mooks up the mountains to teach the Air Nomads some really fun tricks you can do with a lighter and a c

Mai's Ramblings - Ty Lokka

"Of the many, many ships on Avatar: The Last Airbender that went nowhere, the one that probably got the most initial hype was the simple crush held by my friend Ty Lee for Sokka of the Water Tribe.
"Ty Lee was always was some may call a flirt but others AND I DON'T NECESSARILY MEAN MYSELF HERE OH WHO AM I KIDDING may simply dub a floozy since she couldn't help but smile at every single halfway good-looking male that crossed her path and subsequently wink and tease them for as long as their attention span AND MANLY PATIENCE held out which as Ty Lee grew up and MATURED lasted longer and longer until she actually had to petition the Fire Lord's office for some restraining orders but then completely subverted the whole idea by having them scented in a perfume I'm told is favored by upper-class seductresses but just smells like apples to me. I doubt it needs clarifying I'M GOING TO DO IT ANYWAY but Ty Lee never favored any of said boys OR PRINCESS AZULA EITHER BUT

"No can deny that Fire Princess Azula is not exactly FIRING on all cylinders, but the full scope of her insanity can only be grasped through understanding her self-destructive crush on Avatar Aang, who I hear also happens to be the Last Airbender.
"Princess Azula didn't have what anyone would call a normal childhood thanks to her megalomaniac father's belief that children should be turned into unstoppable sociopathic killing machines and not heard and unlike some people DON'T WORRY ZUKO YOU KNOW WE LOVE YOU FOR IT Azula was daddy's little girl and went along with his plan THEY HAD TO GET RID OF HER MOTHER TOO BUT THAT TURNED OUT TO BE DEPRESSINGLY EASY and spent all her younger years learning recipes for human barbeques. Of course even human killing machines have human urges every now and then I MEAN IF EVEN I CAN GET HOT AND BOTHERED EVERYONE MUST HAVE A FRISKY SIDE SOMEWHERE and Azula was no exception but rather than falling for a rugged hero like her kind

Mai's Ramblings - Ty Zula
Mai on... Ty Zula.
"No matter how hard, fast, and consistently Nickelodeon denies it, one of the canon ships that snuck past the censors was the illicit romance between Princess Azula and Ty Lee, the two fruitcakes I have the misfortune to call my best friends.
"Azula had a rough childhood that consisted of being the Fire Lord's favorite person in the whole world and so got away with every single antic she perpetrated in service to her inborn misanthropy. She might give you a spiel about how she never had her mother's love and that it resulted in a lifetime of sociopathic rampaging, but the truth is that torturing her big brother Zuko with a sharp object relieved all her stress and kept her a happy child.
"Ty Lee was an airhead who finally proved the old wives' tale that mothers shouldn't drink Cactus Juice while they're pregnant. She has an attention span that makes a Lemur look positively scholarly and a color-based outlook on life that really sent all the wrong signals about

"Some of the people in Avatar: The Last Airbender are simply too dangerous to be left running around without restraint. In an odd case of fighting a forest fire with more fire, I think it would be a good idea to fix up General Iroh with Hama the crazy Bloodbender.
"At this point I'm getting really tired with talking about the various ways my nation ruined the lives of everybody AND THEIR BROTHER in the entire world so I'm going to go with the version of Hama's past that would have been in the history books if the Avatar had lost the war and let everybody fill in the blanks themselves because anyone who's actually read all these ramblings of mine is either very intelligent WHO ELSE WOULD LOVE ME SO MUCH or a moron looking in the wrong place for grammar tips. Anyway Hama lived her whole life at the South Pole as a Waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe but soon enough the Fire Nation got around to visiting the place on a humanitarian mission to offer all t

"If Zuko making some good decisions and preteens scoring kisses from fourteen-year-olds aren't enough to convince you that Avatar: The Last Airbender depicts some pretty unlikely things, my lifelong friendship with the rather strange Ty Lee should seal the deal.
"Ty Lee and I are often thought of as some kind of dynamic duo TO THE FIRE POLES TY ROBIN who stick together through thick and thin and sometimes even situations of medium thickness but to be honest we haven't spent as much time together as all the boys would like to think AND THE ROYAL ACADEMY DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A LOCKER ROOM SO THERE. Ty Lee and I met back when we were fairly little but the public details are obscured by the mists of time OR MAYBE IT'S A FOG OF WAR so very few people can set the record straight and I'm one of them so you're very lucky. Ty Lee and I were going to the Fire Nation Academy for Girls and I'm not sure why they separated boys and girls at that age because none of us we

Mai's Ramblings - Sukka

"Sukka- the Avatar ship for people who like their men girly, their women desperate, and their heat level higher than Ozai on Cactus Juice.
"Sokka has the unfortunate luck to combine the sexiest male body on the planet with a personality so girly even Ty Lee got jealous. Early in his adventures he meets a girl named Suki and falls head over heals for her, drawing yet another disturbing comparison to Ty Lee with both his agility and love for people in CLOWN makeup. Suki is the greatest warrior on the planet, and also the hottest girl on the planet IF YOU LIKE THAT SORT OF THING, and wiser than three Avatars in a barrel, so of course she gives in to whatever chemicals are pumping in her brain and gets with Sokka solely for his hot body.
"Sokka isn't so manly than he doesn't have a fear of commitment, so he spends the next season and a half running as far as he can from Suki and getting it on with everything in a skirt short of his sister UNLESS YOU LOOK AT THE SUBT

"It doesn't take a genius to see that Katara of the Southern Water Tribe and I are two very different people who would have had a hard time relating to each other under even the best of circumstances. However, fate seemed to take some kind of perverse pleasure in constantly putting her at odds with all of my few real interests.
"I mean really you couldn't imagine two more different girls who come from the same planet although I do recall reading a piece of war propaganda at one point that alleged that the Water Tribals weren't quite Human and since we don't have any interdimensional doorways sitting around AT LEAST NOT THAT I'M AWARE OF BUT I ADMIT I HAVEN'T CHECKED EVERY CLOSET IN THE WORLD YET that leaves flying saucers FROM SPACE as the only other option for their origin unless you count whatever racist evolutionary myths I currently believe but can't be bothered to remember right now.
