after a while i became convinced that the words were mocking me
I WAS PROMISED A BATTLE
*throws down gauntlet*
Edit: Went back. This is the best thing to happen to my dashboard ever.
Reblogging again because my followers need to see this. To be clear, rebog, go to your actual blog, then click the picture.
This is the best thing. Ever.
We know that Ke$ha has been in rehab for the past few weeks for an eating disorder, and we know that Ke$ha’s issues started when her team criticized her weight, but what we didn’t know was just how bad things were. Thankfully, Ke$ha’s mom, Pebe Sebert, is around to tell all kinds of truth about the situation, and this latest truth she told is probably the saddest, scariest truth of all:
"I’ve watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died. The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium levels were so low, they’d never seen it that low except with someone who’d had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn’t already dropped dead on stage.”
And another sad story:
"One time on a conference call, Sonenberg [Ke$ha’s former manager] was screaming, ‘You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do … take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!’ Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself.”
How can people be so awful? If this guy really did tell Ke$ha to do drugs to lose weight and/or “stick your finger down your throat,” then what kind of person is he? It’s one thing to dislike a person’s choice of clothing — what’s up, everybody — but it’s a whole different ballgame to tell someone to disregard her health because she’s maybe a few pounds too heavy for your personal taste. That’s absolutely disgusting.
One more thing from Ke$ha’s mom:
"At this point, she doesn’t care if she ever makes a record again. She just wants to be healthy and happy."
You do whatever you need to, Ke$ha, and we’ll love you regardless. Forget the douchebags. Stay awesome.

This is the entire point of the series. ATLA is full of powerful and important ideas, but this is the single overarching theme that dominates the story and is its most important reason for being.
And that, guys… that is why the Lion Turtle works.
Because Aang was shaping his own destiny. The world, his friends, his own past lives were telling him one thing. They were telling him that it was his destiny to kill the Fire Lord. But Aang said no. It wasn’t his destiny to become a murderer and an assassin, to end a long and bloody war with more bloodshed, and he knew it. So he refused. He forged his own path. He searched for an answer. He went looking for another way. He asked everyone he could think to ask, and was given nothing.
And then, in the final hour… he asked the Lion Turtle.
He didn’t have to. He had already accepted that this time, he wasn’t going to be able to shape his own destiny, and he was just going to have to take what the world had handed him. But he wasn’t going to leave any single option unexplored, and so he asked the Lion Turtle, too.
He asked for an answer.
And his persistence was rewarded. He was given an answer. Because he searched for it and struggled for it, he was given the power to reshape his destiny.
That is the entire fucking point of the story.
in my english class we have to fill in this chart and say how many hours we’ve been on the computer or watching tv and say what we’re doing and why and my friend looked at me and said “you should probably lie a little.”
