Story Time: IN WHICH I GET STANLEY CUP TICKETS??

So one of my students wants to transfer to Columbia to be closer to his fam and asked if I would be willing to edit his application packet (they require 5 different essays, ridiculous). Of course I did, because he’s one of my favs and could definitely excel at Columbia.

Well he pops into my office today and was like, “Hey I’ve submitted all my stuff and I wanted to thank you for helping me, I really appreciate it. My family owns Ticketmaster, so if you ever want free tickets to a show let me know and I’ll get you whatever seats you want.”

And at first I was like, that is ridiculously generous but I’m not a concert person so no thanks but then I was like. Wait. Can you get hockey tickets from Ticketmaster? Yes. Indeed you can. Can you get…Stanley Cup tickets? Yes. Indeed you can.

“Just let me know when they go on sale.”

What even is my life.

The light of my eyes, I said, light of my eyes, light of the world, that’s what you are, light of my life.

i made a helpful diagram for everyone 

  • The male benders in ATLA: Really good. They worked hard to get where they are skill wise and while it hasn't always been easy, they are capable and can hold their own in a fight. One of them was even the Avatar, which is pretty impressive since he mastered the elements at age twelve, rather than start learning at 16 like most Avatars.
  • The female benders in ATLA: Inarguably the most powerful and unmatched humans in the entire world. Prodigies, masters, and creators of subbending styles. One was compared in skill to the Fire Lord at age EIGHT and able to perform one of the rarest and most difficult forms by 14. She couldn't be defeated by another's (even the Avatar's) bending alone. Only faced defeat when fighting two other master benders while on the verge of a complete mental breakdown (officially being defeated by different female bender). Another held an entire city up by a single turret while standing on unstable ground, and then went on to invent her own bending style at the age of twelve. One mastered her element in mere WEEKS, mastered bloodbending and defeated the woman who INVENTED IT the FIRST TIME SHE EVER ATTEMPTED IT, held her own against a master waterbender without ANY TRAINING, and fully healed someone from a fatal wound, making her a master at two vastly different forms of waterbending at the age of 14. A female Avatar quite literally reshaped the planet and created her own ISLAND. AND MOVED IT ACROSS THE SEA. These women shown in the show are not only the most powerful and talented females in their universe, but also in almost any known piece of television or fiction, all while being completely fleshed out and complex characters, not being defined as nothing but 'strong'. Each has their own personality, strengths, and weaknesses.
