If we prove ourselves here in this first battle, even before entering the Recon Corps, surely they’ll promote us right up the ladder!

Yeah! Without a doubt!

I asked my best friend if we could go on a road trip this summer to see the Grand Canyon. It hasn’t even been an hour since we finalized this, and my anxiety is already creeping in. 

I keep seeing myself falling over the edge!!!!! OMG!

"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge."

I love the sort of sense it makes as a metaphor, and then no, no sense at all.

I really like this. This is actually really cool.

Dragons are awe-inspiring patchwork creatures found in the myths and legends of cultures all around the world.

In Europe, they are nightmarish fire-spewing reptiles, large and lizard-like, with the forked tongue of a snake and wings like a bat. In the legends, they are reviled and feared because they liked to imprison maidens, destroy villages and hoard over mountains of gold.

In the ancient cultures of Mexico and South America, a divine feathered serpent known by various names was believed to renew the world after each cycle of destruction.

In China, dragons are amphibious creatures that dwell in oceans, lakes, rivers and even raindrops. They are revered as life-giving symbols of fortune and fertility, capable of unleashing rain in times of drought. They are animal mosaics, possessing the body of a snake, the scales of a fish, the talons of an eagle, the antlers of a stag, and the face of a gilin—another mythical creature that resembles a deer but whose body is wreathed in flames.
