I love listening to international music and watching international movies and shows.
Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra are my favorites.

Message from Writer

"Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light" --Micah 7:8

Still I Rise Excerpt -- Maya Angelou
"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise...

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?...

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise."

Thank you all so much for believing in me, even when I didn't.

My hands shake as we stand in formation. There is no sound but the wind howling over our heads. My black military uniform is crisp and ironed from my mother's careful hands. My hat is soft and lightly sits on top of my head. I stand with a straight back amongst my comrades. 
Lieutenant Saito, Commander Rei, and General Towusaga all stand in front of the black-lined...

My stomach clenches tightly and I suck in a deep breath. Tanaka Masaru glances at me from his seat at the pilot console. The co-pilot, Yamamoto Riku, gives me a side look before turning back to the controls. He quickly...

I check the fuel tank for the seventh time, my fingers shaking as I unclamp the top of the container. I don't bother with trying to find Ito Kaiyo or Tanaka Masaru or even Watanabe Haru. There's no point; we're all going to the same place anyway. 
I climb down from the fighter's insides and jump onto the cement below. My heavy brown boots thud against the floor as I make my way...

Contest Número 1

FREE WRITING

Welp... looks like I'm posting a contest. Yep, totally original. I usually hate bandwagons, but I gave a prompt to Abigail Sauble as a reward for being such a faithful follower on my Dear Followers post, and I loved her response. So, I guess I'm making it a public competition. I hope I get a lot of entries! 

Prompt:Write about something that you don't believe in, but your main character has to believe in it. You can't ridicule or...

"That is all. Soldiers, prepare yourselves. Tomorrow, you take off," Commander Rei says softly, gazing at each of us with meaning in his eyes. I've always liked him; he was the kindest Commander that this army had. He was also a man of few words, so unlike Lieutenant Saito. "Remember, this is the most important mission that you soldiers will ever have to fly into. We wouldn't ask you to risk your lives if this wasn't...

Light #candleflame

FREE WRITING

Light fills even
The darkest corners
Of the world, 
Despite the lack
Of a flame. 

Light stretches through
The thick expanse 
Of time, 
Despite the few
Who spread it.

Light destroys much of
The futile resistance
Of those who deny, 
Despite the numerous
Who resist.

My little flame 
Will spread, stretch,
And destroy, 
Despite the many 
Times I've let it
Extinguish. 

Light and flames 
Do not rely on 
People like me, 
Despite what most
Tend to think. 

So, I held...

My Fall #risingfalling

FREE WRITING

    The only way for me to rise is to fall. That's what I was told since the beginning. That's all I know. I know nothing else. I never knew what Mama meant by that. I won't ever find out. But, I think I know what I should do. 
   
    Pushing through the crowded streets, I lower my cap over my face. Honking of cars fill my ears, but I refuse to be deterred by the noise. People...
