To be fair, I don’t think Korra really knows why she feels the way she does. Toph is probably completely right, but Korra is so mixed up and she’s still hurting. Mercury toxicity is not a pretty thing, and the fact that there’s still mercury in her body (probably being stored in her fat which is why being hit and thrown around would release more poison and trigger hallucinations) means that her mental and physical state is still impaired. Maybe Korra needs that tough love, but chances are, she really can’t relax, she really can’t bare the idea of being reintroduced into society as the Avatar, she can’t actually figure out why she feels so horrible all the time.
Trauma does not go away overnight. Depression, whether triggered from biochemistry or psychological damage is reason enough for Korra to dread this potentially painful process. The healing process is not over and probably will never be. But Korra is strong, and she will learn to cope. She just needs support, which Toph is trying to give her in her own special way.
I think she will actually come out stronger though because maybe it will be like in the fight between rock lee and Garaa where rock lee lifts his weights and then without the resistance he like moves faster and stuff.
The story of My Little Dead Dick by Patrick Tasi and Madi Ju
This is an intimate photo diary captured throughout an entire year, about this couples relationship. They are both photographers who meet online, finally meet in person and feel deeply for each other wanting to move things to the next level. Patrick explains: “Madi and I were both big fans of each other’s work, so when we met in person for the first time, taking photos together just fueled us along and also was the basis of our relationship. The photos we took were not as beautifully composed as our past individual work, but I guess the casualness and intimacy of the pictures spoke to a lot more people who saw our work online.” They both decided they wanted to be together, so they both moved to a new location to start a new life and pursue their dreams. I truly enjoyed this series and it is very inspirational to the work I’m doing now. Their series brings the viewer into something we all experience but don’t get to see first-hand, inside others relationships.
Earth Day, All Day, Every Day
Earth Day was April 22, but that doesn’t mean we stopped thinking about our beloved planet. To acknowledge and celebrate the environment, Sasaki designers from all disciplines presented quick presentations on sustainability, offering a unique glimpse into each individual’s perspective on the topic. The result was a fun and engaging event with a breadth of ideas too inspiring to keep to ourselves.
For her Earth Day presentation, Sasaki architect Emily Goldenberg shared her thesis research on growing populations and the significant increase in dense, informal settlements around the globe. Understanding how to accommodate these densities and settlements, as well as design for future growth, is a significant concern. In addition to her research, Emily shared design ideas and projects that test solutions for these populations.

Never forget a woman that loved Mugen (and never forget the anime that shouldn’t end)"He's the man I'm going to marry. I'm in love with him. Bye bye. When both our journeys have ended, I'll definitely come to see you."
