What makes superhero exactly? The S on the chest the spider on your back or star plastered on your left breast. I truly don't believe it's any of those exactly, but the actions one takes that defines true heroism. Being a true hero doesn't just limits oneself to the pages of your favorite comicbook or manga but in everyday life with the very actions and choices you make. Big or Small your choices matter like helping the elderly, working in soup kitchens, doing your part in neighborhoods, also just being there when someone needs you most that's a true hero.

Why Blue lanterns, the best lantens and here's why. They are empowerered by the emotional spectrum, of hope. The first of many blue lanterns is saint walker, after learning of his planet imminet destruction, he hears a voice telling him to climb a mountain, and at the top walker would have the power to save his homeworld. He treks on with his family in tow, telling them to have faith. But one by one each one of his family perish during the hike. Walker missing them greatly never loses faith eventually reaching the top only to find stone instead placed.

Saint Walker reached the summit of the moutain, facing the stone before him, he lashes out and lamenting the lost of his family struck the stone. The stone begins to shine. It started reflect his image, that's he realizes that he was one who was to save his people. The blue Ring said he has the power to instill great hope.

Grey jedi, are they the true masters of the force? I believe yes they are. They understand true mastery of the force, by learning and dipping in both without truly mastering neither. The light side deals in compassion, order, and the pursuit peace. While the dark side deals in absolutes, power and betrayal. Grey jedi saw the weakness in both of the philosophies, and stated there can't be one without the other. So instead of fighting each other, understand the aspects of the force is both. There is no Dark side, nor a light side, There Balance in the force.

Why do I love comics?, Like any form of media, it's my form of escape. Growing up as a child with disabilities, I Saw Super heroes, as being different like me. The X-men for example are Mutants they are hated and feared for what they were. They wanted to belong, and that resonated with me as a kid! comics had compeling stories with gods, super powered aliens Comics had stories, that kept me entertained for hours. They were Heroes to aspire to, some had stories that reflected the times. They taught lessions: With great power comes...oh you know.

Heraclitus states that Everything is in Flux. What does he mean, exactly? He says that everything changes, that nothing stands still. As human beings, we hate and fear change but if what he say is true why do we still fear it? Change should be normal like putting on your shoes. The reason change can terrify us, is it can be sudden, no time to adjust. Only by accepting that change is constant can we truly conqueror it. What is bad change?, What is good change?, or is it just trivial, and there is no good and bad change anyway.

What is the meaning of life? The definition of life states the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death. So why do we truly live? My way of viewing life is like seeing beautiful flower. A flower wilts, and dies but at a time it's beautiful. We are wonderful, and as such we should bring joy, like the flower does. Spreading joy and love should be our main goal in life. We have to remember, that life is short and can be over. So Love.

Is there freewill or destiny? I truly think it's both really to some degree. We are Free to choose where we live, where we work, who we are to marry. But where does destiny come in to play in all this? destiny is defined as the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future so knowing this, not to be dark but we are all destined to be born and are all destined to die. We have to cherish our time we have and live a honest a full life because theres only one.

I always wonder if I will succeed in life. Will my contributions, truly effect the world in a big way? Maybe or maybe not I already know that, we are truly small In the grand Scheme of things, or that some religon keeps of grounded and gives us hope and dictates our moral compass. It's just that sometimes the weight of the world lays heavy on my shoulders. I always want to do more I want to understand. I end up going outside take a breath and watch the world go by and just watch the people go by everyday.

Everyone had a teacher, that teaches us and help us to learn but what is a good teacher exactly? A good teacher is a person who teaches us, to question our conventional wisdom. They don't want us to learn the scantron formula, or just write down what we learned and move on as they teach but wants us, to engage and question each other. The good teacher makes learning fun. Many philosophers of the age had someone to teach them. Socrates who taught plato, Plato taught aristotle and aristole even taught Alexander the great. Good teachers are really truly treasured.

Fire emblem has gotten a resurgence as of late. Fire emblem was popular in japan and started on the NES and the U.S didn't get the title until 2003 on the Gameboy. We missed 6 titles then the 7th title came out and Blew me away as a kid. Fire emblem got released one after the other on the new systems gamecube, wii, then it started failing.

Fire emblem started failing, they tried it on the DS another nintendo handheld at the time, and it didn't hit nintendo quota and they were gonna shelf it definitely to my dismay. So nintendo gave it one more shot, and said it this game doesn't sell it's over. So they came out with Fire emblem awakening as a last hurrah so to speak and the game selled like hotcakes, as a fan I even bought it I was glad to see my beloved franchise make a big return.

In class we discussed about about trump, and his inauguration. We saw two photos of different inaugurations, one of trump's and the other was obamas. Trump claimed his inauguration was packed, and also was proud of the numbers and support. Our teacher, showed us a video on kellyanne conway, at that moment we were taught of the term of Alternative Facts. At the end of the day, it means falsehoods or lies. Many people called her out, and our presidents claims on the matter including us, as well. We were taught to look and to question not accepting face value.

Videogame music, why do I love it so? It hits a cord with me, like a nastalgia bomb going off in my memories. It brings back a simpler time, when I was young, where the only evil I would face was on my screen. Videogame music can bring a wellspring of emotions that of joy, sorrow, and a mix of both. Videogame music keeps the player invested, in the story unfolding, all around them. This moment as I write I'am listening, to a track to one of my favorite videogames of all time. Videogame music is a motivator for me.

Fears, they plague is all, to the biggest adult to the smallest child. My greatest fear is failure. I'am not ashamed to admit this. Why am I afraid to fail, at life but not videogames is the question, I wondered. I guess life is only one shot, if you break you don't make it. While videogames, has unlimited tries, I make myself sick sometimes, at how I can keep going at a game until I succeed but at life I curl and give up, when I fail once. I have to view the world as a game because it is.

The Legend of zelda, a game that stands the test of time, it goes down as a classic and a lot of people favorite game of all time, it's definitely one of mine as well. The legend of zelda, isn't just your typical videogame it can teach you life lessons as well. Here's how I will start with some of zelda lore first. In Hyrule, the land at which the game exist, the land was created by three goddesses. The names of those goddesses were nayru, farore, and lastly din these goddesses went about created the world and all inhabitants.
01/29 Direct Link
continuing where I left off, After their work was finished, they departed for the heavens, but not without leaving their blessing. It was the triforce. The triforce was three triangles within a triangle. each piece represented an aspect of what the goddesses are. Nayru as wisdom, farore as courage, and lastly din as power. Those three traits, were bestowed upon three characters, in the game Zelda for wisdom, link our hero for courage, and ganon for power. The legend of zelda is adventure game of saving the princess at the end of the day but it's more deeper than this.

The legend of zelda requires you to explore dungeons with the main hero link, in the game you find items to get stronger and so forth but the kicker here is, you find secrets around the world in the game to help progress. It give me the sense of discovery of searching the vast world and coming upon the items I needed and feeling accomplished when I find them. Shigeru Miyamoto, series creator as a boy claimed playing in caves and exploring the forest was a huge inspiration for the game and I could totally tell and feel that ingame.
