Statement of Intent: If bạn read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against đọc Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a Facebook audience of Những người bạn until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight những người hâm mộ hoặc readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough được ưa chuộng demand, I'm willing to write a similar bài viết about Bella Swan.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Smoke and Shadow #3)


I got to read this one like way back in March thanks to tumblr lol. But I decided to wait until I actually got a physical copy to review it on here.

Any how 10/10 *was satisfied with the amount of Azula*
As always, I really enjoyed the comic as a whole, I really liked this story line. The whole fear based theme and the Kemurikage were wonderful. I'd really tình yêu to know thêm about those ladies.

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope bạn take just a few phút out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling bạn about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

Preface

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.

“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother...

Writer Randy Jernigan recently shed some light on this reality while he was a guest on Donny Max's 'Lets Talk About It' radio program out of Seattle. Randy, who has been diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure, Chronic...

Who Am I?
By: Gabriela Acosta



Chapter 1
“How would bạn describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”
“Because you’re always so quiet around people. Not around me, of course. It’s like bạn shut yourself down completely, like bạn don’t want them to know who bạn are.”
“But bạn know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, bạn know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!
“Hey, bạn asked for my...

Author Randy Jernigan and Jackson
When I sat down to bữa tối, bữa ăn tối at a small Asian bistro with my old friend and writer Randy Jernigan, he quickly scanned the menu, searching for the healthiest foods. Today would not be one of his famous “cheat days” he shares on his social media pages–usually Mondays when he and best friend, Jackson Fackrell, indulge in what he terms a “free meal.” Today he opts for several veggie heavy dishes with less calories, and of course, minus the fried cơm, gạo and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

At the time I remembered our last...
