On my way to the Detroit convention!
Hey, so what should we do to make the ratings go up?
I KNOW! I KNOW! ADVERTISE KORRA MORE! MORE PROMO'S, TRAILERS! MAYBE MOVE KORRA TO-
Your absolutely right, lets release leaks, then be totally careless about them, then show korra out of the blue, then make it a one hour special each week, not have it online, then totally put the entire show on hiatus and lets not tell them why or for how long, and then only show one episode this week, that should do the trick.

She can’t be real.
Late night conversations are the deepest…
When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, to think as a child, to reason as a child; but now that I have become a man, I have done away with the traits of a child. (1 Corinthians 13:11)
This scripture is so applicable to my life at this moment. I know that it is only God’s active force in my life that is allowing me to persist in this faith. I thank Him for getting me to where I am today.
I am currently lounging in my bed and reflecting on a conversation I just had with my mum. From that, I’ve reached this conclusion: I am no longer a child. I don’t think like a child. I don’t act like a child. Still, I am surrounded by contemporaries who engage in childlike behavior. And my patience has worn thin.
For years, I thought I was part of the problem. If I changed who I was, maybe that would get people to like me more. If I liked the same things others liked, then those commonalities would foster relationships. Now I know that’s childish thinking. If I change myself to please others, then they aren’t liking me for who I am. By putting out a false version of myself, I am disrespecting the real me. I’ve learned that being genuine and confident in who I am is never wrong. I am worth celebrating. I know I am capable of being a good friend. I have friends that still regularly keep up with me from high school. I never had personality conflicts or opposition in school. If people can’t welcome me in their lives at a mutual place of worship, then they’re part of the problem and not the other way around.
We are a family in this faith. There’s nothing closer then the bonds our faith creates. That’s why I can’t grasp how some can choose to exclude and isolate others. How can people afford to be so judgmental and exclusionary when there is so few of us? We don’t have lots of other options. Moreover, I don’t know how parents can allow their sons and daughters to exclude others. I used to think that perhaps they were just oblivious to what was going on, but now I know that cannot be the case. They see that certain names are consistently absent on invite lists. As far I’m concerned, by allowing that to go on, they’ve condoned that behavior. By not incorporating all younger ones at functions, they’ve promoted a divisive and unwelcome atmosphere.
I am done with childish behavior. I’ve done nothing to warrant years of exclusion and judgement. I am who I am. I know I’m not going to be everyone’s best friend. But I do think I am entitled to some respect. The fact I’ve made it to baptism and have continued on after twenty years is worth something?
Of course, I am in no way suggesting this behavior is the case everywhere. This is only my personal experience right now. Truthfully, I have forged bonds with fellow JWs that I will never forget. I just needed to get this off my chest. Jah has kept me going this far, and I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. Love.
