Big K.R.I.T. - RED EYE
I adore this song
Okay. I really, really enjoyed the first season of LoK. I watched it recently in on fell swoop and just fell in love with it. So when I heard about the second season I was uber excited. Then I watched the premiere, and was sorely disappointed. But I brushed that off and went into this episode cautiously optimistic. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either.
- I loved the fact that Korra let her guard down and made up with her parents. She’s been really obnoxious and downright unbearable in my opinion but for me all was pretty much forgiven when she started crying and ran into her parents arms.
- Bolin and the weirdly evil twins. For whatever reason I love this dynamic. Tis awesome. And Bolin is probably one of the most easily likeable characters in the series.
- Meelo is so damn adorable I can’t stand it
- Korra’s blatant obtuseness at the fact that her uncle is a power crazed tyrant. I mean everyone sees it but her. A little ego stroking and she was putty in his hands.
- The Aang favoring Tenzin thing really rubbed me the wrong way. It was disappointing to me simply because one of the things I’d personally most looked forward to was maybe seeing some flashbacks of Aang being a dad. Considering how bubbly and playful he was as a kid I just envisioned him being a great father and it’s disappointing that that wasn’t the creators vision. It just seems so out of character for the Aang I knew and loved 60 or so episodes to so blatantly favor one child to go as far to actively exclude the others. Had he really changed that much? I’m disappointed.
- Where the hell is Ikki?
- For that matter where is Asami? I like her. And I would love to see the whole gaang back together as one.
*Also I need Lin to make an appearance at some point. She is by far my favorite character. I miss her fierceness.
Overall I still love the series. The ending was great and I’m pretty confident things will pick of nicely from here.
Looking forward to the second season of Legend of Korra. I loooooovvve this series so much. (Although nothing can top the original)
Also grown up Aang is everything. I <3 him.
Trying to adopt this philosophy.
I have an appointment to go to the doctor tomorrow. In my head I am already thinking up excuses as to why I shouldn’t go.
The anxiety I feel is pervasive.
"God I’m going to have to talk to people. People are going to be looking at me, I’m going to say the wrong thing. I’m so freaking awkward" Blah, blah, blah.The ever present negative chatter.
This to me is the most frustrating thing about having mental health issues, Having your fate ultimately be in your hands.There is no quick fix for me. Although medications may help some (so far for me they haven’t done squat). There is no magic pill to fix what ails me. And sometimes just getting out of bed is a feat within itself, People whom don’t live with it don’t understand. Shit sometimes even I don’t understand it. I just know often times I feel as if I’m drowning, suffocating. I wish so badly I could just be how I used to be…
I love these ladies. Their music resonates with me and is forever forever on repeat.
Ledisi - Her soulfulness, She’s beautiful, she’s strong, she’s confident. To me she is the epitome of “grown ass woman”. Class, dignity, epitomized. For me, she is like the ultimate personification of a beautiful black woman. She is what I want to be when i grow up. lol. Also her voice… is freaking out of this world.
Adele - Is the perfect example of good music being universal. No matter where you are from, your age group, social class, sex, religious background, whatever. You can listen to her music and be like “damn, I know exactly what you mean girl “. I heard Melt My Heart to Stone years ago and promptly fell in love with her. The fact that she’s cheeky, irreverent and not a total fame/attention whore is so refreshing. With Adele you just know ultimately, it is about the music. The art. I love her for that
Jazmine Sullivan - Her voice. That rich smoky voice, so beautiful. I especially love when she does those slow ass mournful songs. You know those ones that make you ache deep in you chest. Like In Love With Another Man, Resentment, In Vain etc.. I just love it. The fact that there is also content in her music beyond the norms of what most r&b singers touch on is great. Issues like domestic abuse, drug addiction, peer pressure and things like that, i adore. There needs to be a hell of a lot more of that in mainstream r&b imo. She gives that variety. I love her for it. Hope she makes her way back soon. I miss that girl
