It’s not easy being me when everything I do seems to go against the social norms. I’m too much or not enough for most people I meet. I find it difficult to know when to stop talking or when to speak up. I can’t find my voice when I need it because I am terrified of rejection. Sometimes I say or reveal things I shouldn’t and sometimes I don’t give enough information. I am afraid of being rejected and disliked because it’s happened every time I’ve tried to connect with someone.

The Walking Dead begins when Rick Grimes wakes up in a hospital bed to find the world has changed beyond recognition and zombies now roam the earth.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender there are four basic bending elements, but what our characters do to expand these elements beyond their basic uses is incredible.

Freezing water

Freezing water is exactly how it sounds. The first time we see this bending style being used is in episode 2. When Katara attempts to freeze the Fire Nation guards. Because she is inexperienced hilariously freezes Sokka, her brother first.

Blood Bending

In Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra there are some characters that have certain impairments or disabilities. Despite this fact they thrive and don’t let their impairments hold them back. In some cases, even their impairments are what make them better in the long run. Some of these characters even go beyond what is expected of someone without disabilities. In this article, I am going to talk about the empowering representation of disabled individuals in Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra and why it is so important.

Avatar: The Last Airbender delves into some seriously deep themes that go beyond just being a kid’s show. The show is set in a time of war between the three of the four nations and the fire nation being the dictators of the war. There is no peace as long as they have control.

When Taylor was releasing her album reputation I had already heard about some of the things she was dealing with as an avid Taylor Swift fan I kept up with her even during her 3 year break from the spot light. I understood what she was feeling. She was by all accounts “cancelled” by the media, her own friends, and people she didn’t even know. She was in a very dark place. At this time I was being shunned by the group I mentioned earlier for no reason. One of the parents of one of the girls a 65 year…
