Boyfriend Chronicles: Part 1
My first boyfriend’s name was Marcus. Our story took a lot of twists, and he's the one relationship that has the most history. I wouldn't call this story tragic...I wouldn't even really call it sad. If there was one word to describe it, I would say it was just "interesting".
Coldhearted, Still Hurt
I work so hard at making myself cold. On hardening my heart, bottling feelings until I'm numb. "It doesn't bother me anymore."
Stupid Does Not Mean Unwanted
The other day, when we talked, I mentioned that I thought relationships were stupid. You responded saying "No, you don't."
What I'd Rather Not Remember
I still see the day you left, Stuck in my head, can’t forget Your icy words that left me dead inside and the tears I shed
At You: Things I Love About You
I love your smile. I love seeing it, and especially love being the cause of it. I love it, especially when I can watch the smile grow like when you're realizing something exciting or you've just gotten good news. I love how I’ve memorized it and even just thinking about it brings a smile to my own face. I don't know why it happens, but sometimes it’s all you have to do to fix my mood. You just smile, and suddenly I can’t be mad and I can’t be sad. I can’t even fake it, because I just end up looking at your dumb face and smiling back.
Like, Love, Lost
It's falling asleep to the sound of your voice, to you singing our favorite song, It's falling asleep to the sound of silence, our best memories long gone,
An Evaluative Approach to 'Zutara'
Avatar the Last Airbender is a popular animated series co-created and produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Running from February 2005 to July 2008, the show gained a sizeable fan base, including teenagers and adults, despite being aired on the children’s network, Nickelodeon. It takes place in a world where people are divided into four nations, each aligning with one of the four major elements: earth, fire, water, and air. Certain individuals are born with an ability to control one of these elements, a talent referred to as “bending.” The “Avatar” is a reincarnated soul, able to control all four elements and tasked with the duty of maintaining peace. Avatar centers around a 100-year war between nations, with the Fire Nation being the main antagonist, and follows the current Avatar, Aang, as he struggles to master the elements. Two of the most important parts of the show are the depth of its characters and the relationships they formed. Viewers especially took interest in the romantic relationships in the series, sparking much debate about the “canon,” or official, couples. The most highly discussed debate is whether Katara, one of the main characters, should’ve ended up with Zuko, the fire nation prince, rather than Aang.
