New Year, New Resolutions

So a bunch of my friends were creating dreamwidth accounts and I was like "you know what, fuck it, let's do this thing" and thus [personal profile] talkingmotorrad was born. ~Tada~ Feel free to friend/add me there!

I've been meaning to update for the longest time but I just... never got around to it. I hope to post more this new year but ehh I always say that so who knows?

Anyway 2011 happened and what a fucking year. There were some high highs and some low lows, like lol really low lows. My depression hit it's peak, my relationship with my mom was torn to shreds, and I spent most of the year feeling like I wasn't able to do anything.

However, this year I also went to Feelingscon in NC to meet up IN REAL LIFE with nerd friends, I graduated from high school, and I not only survived but also enjoyed my first quarter of college?!!??! I stuck with water polo until the end, playing for over 4 years, and I joined UCSD's crew team!

So my resolutions (aka goals that I hope to achieve at least a few of) for 2012 are:

Drum roll please...Collapse )

Women Love Fest Post 2- Kino Fanmix

Kino is a traveler, a wanderer, a drifter. She is always traveling, and only stays at one village/town/city/kingdom for three days. She is a girl who has cut ties with her old life, taking on a new name and a new calling.

This fanmix is about Kino's growth from the young girl who didn't want to have her "operation" to the strong young woman who still thinks the world is beautiful despite- or maybe because of- all the bad things she has seen.

Songs were chosen based on both the lyrics and the feel of the song.

Cut for your convenience.Collapse )

My first post for womenlovefest: Katara.

Yes I am partaking in womenlovefest. Everyone else should as well- meta, fanfic, art, graphics, icons, etc. are all welcomed. This wall of text is meta.

(Screenshot from avatarspirit.net)

No! No way am I apologizing to a sour old man like you!

Katara is my forever girl. She is so fierce and passionate and she fights for what she wants. Katara’s ambition and drive is evident in the very first episode, when she asks Aang to take her to the North Pole to find a waterbending master.

Along the way she is constantly working on improving her bending on her own, going so far as to steal a scroll from pirates to learn some new moves. And when Aang masters not only the moves she has learned so far but others as well with ease she gets so angry and yells at him because she is jealous of his natural talent.

However she apologizes and soon masters a new move herself: the water whip. So throughout the whole first season we see how much Katara wants to master waterbending, how much she practices, how passionate she is about this.

And yet fandom says she is a “Mary Sue”. Why? Because apparently her mastering of waterbending was “too quick”, saying that there is no way Katara could have advanced so quickly after just finding a master. That there is no way her waterbending could be so powerful after a few episodes, despite her having shown before how powerful she can be when angry (like in the very first episode). It wasn’t this sudden rush of new power- she was always very powerful, but only able to harness that power when experiencing strong emotions (mainly anger). Yet it isn’t until she finds a Master to teach her how to use that power at will that she is finally able to tap into that power easily. Which makes sense if you ask me.

Meta about Katara- focusing on her growth as a waterbender throughout Season 1.Collapse )
I was gonna do a serious lj post but then I got lazy and instead found this meme!

Give me the name of a character (or characters) and I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character (BFFs, mentors, etc)
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.



No water polo = early mid-life crisis

I've been meaning to post for some time, but either I forget or am distracted by something else. So here's a quick update!

-Water polo is over. Simultaneous FUCK YEAH and AWW NOO. I miss seeing my teammates all the time, and I miss working out every day. Right now I'm working 3 times a week but it still doesn't seem like enough? IDK, I'm gonna have to figure out a schedule or something.

-Taking Turbo Kick classes at the 24 Hour Fitness near my school with some of my friends and fellow ex-water polo seniors.

-Have to drive my sister everywhere now. BOO.

-Hanging out with my friends more often and actually having time to see them <333

-I heard back from 3 of 9 colleges so far and I've been accepted by them! CRISIS AVERTED. I still have no idea of where I want to go.

-Physics and Calculus are kicking my ass this semester. CALCULUS WITH 3D IMAGES AND OBJECTS SUCKS.

-I have a huge list of things to read, reread, watch, rec, and write about... and yeah, it's not getting any smaller by me staring at it. I highly recommend watching Young Justice (currently airing on Cartoon Network) and I just finished rereading the first volume of Kino's Journey, and will probably make a rec post about it.

-BOUGHT POKEMON WHITE VERSION TODAY. PICKED SMUGLEAF AND AM HAVING A BLAST. I have a feeling the next few weeks are just gonna be me holed up inside my house playing Pokemon and Okami. (The icon I am using for this post seems very appropriate.)

And that is a shorthand version of the past two weeks.

'Sup LJ

I've been kinda missing from the internet these past two weeks because of semester finals and water polo, and I probably won't be around much this next month.

This is my last month of water polo, and it's gonna be busy and hectic and stressful and I want to savor every minute of it because, guys, this has been a crucial part of my life for the past 4 years. AS IN IT HAS PRETTY MUCH DICTATED MY LIFE FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS.

My last overnight team trip ended yesterday, and it is starting to hit me how much I'm gonna miss my team, playing games, practice, etc.; but I'm also really excited because I'll actually be able to have time for other interests and hobbies!

So this has been a post of me saying that I'm gonna be sparse this next month because of water polo, whom I have a love-hate relationship with.

Last Post of 2010

2010 was a really stressful year for me. So many things happened this past year and I'm still trying to adjust to most of them. Thankfully, I have most things sorted out now/am working on them, but I can't say that I'm sorry to leave 2010 behind. However, in looking forward to the new year I decided to talk about some of the cool things of this year!

Warning: feelings behind this cut.Collapse )

Anyways, I'm actually excited for 2011, and for graduating high school, going to college, and a bunch of other life changing events. Goodbye 2010, HELLO 2011!


So apparently I have a tumblr now? http://sandwichocracy.tumblr.com/

AND I AM ALREADY ADDICTED. I mean, who cares about completing college essays when I can be staring at pretty pictures?!?!!?
