Korranation's Discovery in the Spirit Realm


Korranation

Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow rebels!
This is Korranation signing on for another challenge.
I've decided to set up shop here in the druid guild for a change of pace. Instead of traveling with the adventurers, finding some balance and peace is a better route.

For those of you who don't know me here's a lil background:
I'm a college student living at home with the folks. I live with my dad (The Fatherlord), sis (mini me), stepmother (Maleficent) and stepsister (Lilith). I've switched majors a few times and finally decided to settle with multidisciplinary studies since it's more diverse and rounded than most degrees. A lot has happened during my time at college. I've gotten in a car accident that put me behind a year, my grandmother passes away last year and I've been taking care of my grandpa (Iroh) since then. A few months ago I got a job and that's helped me manage my time better. Still dealing balancing school, work, and family has caused me to put healthy choices (like good food and exercise) on the back burner.

My main quest is to lose 50 pounds before next year or lose x amount of inches so I can steal borrow my mini me's clothes. I've got some good motivation pulling me on this challenge. I'm hoping to have more energy, get outside more, give my family a healthier life (cooking and having them cook), and one day looking in the mirror with pride (and admiring a six pack instead of a muffin top).

I've been reading Steve's new book and want to use this as a groundwork to be the Hero of my own story for once. I'm still going through it so there will be a lot of construction for this first thread.

X lived a humble existence as a nerdy pet store cashier. Like other superhero origin stories, the hero struggled with getting started/ shit done. However, as the prophecies of old foretold, change was coming. Thanks to the new NF book, and the amazing tutelage of the ridiculously good-looking, clever, and modest mentor, Steve, our hero transformed, creating Korranation to protect the lives of his/her loved ones. Although our hero lives out an ordinary life by day, at night he/she is an absolute badass, known for cooking meals of epicness, traveling the spirit world, and one time even winning an ironman challenge.

Thanks!

It all started with a pun and the monikers soon followed. I've been tempted as of late to renickname my stepsister as Azula and stepmom as Kuvira.

My days are gonna be pretty packed , but If I can keep up with my thread I'm going to be narrating my challenge thru my avatar.

 

When I'm studying using the pomodoro method I'll be conquering waves of bandits that are trying to raid Wan Shi Tong's Library.

When I talk about work I'll be talking about visiting the spirit realm villages where people are coexisting with spirit companions (pets). [since I work at a pet store]

And I'm thinking of using batch cooking to save time on breakfast, lunch, and snacks (and since I'm sensitive to processed foods) I may talk about spirit realm foods and how they may or may not have 'status effects.' 

I'm still figuring out how to input the doodlie pvp scavenger hunt into the narrative, but for now I'll simply stumble across the items or find them simply bc they relate to avatar things (e.g. meditating, yoga, mindfulness)

Batch cooking is so nice, when I can get myself to do it! I have been managing to make all my lunches for the week on Sunday, though. It's nice to just be able to grab something from the fridge and head out to work.

I've made my list for my next batch. I'll stop at the grocery store before work for snacks and soups for lunch. I'll do prepping after Wednesday once the stress of last minute cramming for quizzes, assignments, and exams are done with.

Now that's a bit of a monster XD. What kind of tea has Uncle recommended for your challenge?

Nothing but the finest jasmine tea from the Jasmine Dragon.

If I run out of Jasmine tea I'll start using green tea.

Sorry about the long update. It's been a long week. I've been meaning to write a narrative, but I still don't have enough time and being a perfectionist I know I'd spend a good two hours writing it out. I'll give a synopsis anyways. 

 

I was going to detail about the changes in the spirit world and the material world, describe how a new spirit market opened up and Korra was one of the people left to moderate it since it's new and all. Any further descriptions would have been about the customers I deal with irl. Like a few days ago... I had a woman blame me for company policy I have no control over and yell at me for being incompetent. (I would have spent a good half hour fuming about that on here.) After discussing the new market Korra would stumble upon/ receive a call from Wan Shi Tong's library. Korra  finds him in injured and in distress, having his books stolen and the new human technology too powerful for him. Luckily Korra  finds a clue to the bandits whereabouts. Korra  tracks them down and find a small camp. After defeating the small group Korra  finds a book detailing a network of bandits of their schedule of gathering tech and timed bandit raids back to the library. Turns out someone is paying them a lot to get this old information. Korra  continues the hunt for these bandits and eventually find out who is behind this, what knowledge they are after, and why. 

 

I've been more thorough with my time since looking at day to day life through my hero. I see work at time spent in a new spirit market and angry customers as dark spirits. I see my study time as me hunting down and finding small niches of bandit camps. I've been using a pomodoro app to keep track of time. This feels like the ultimate S.M.A.R.T. goal. its specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. I used this method yesterday to write a three page paper in under two hours.

Humans are pretty cool and interesting beings, until they patronize a business, at which point they transmogrify into sludge yelpers. :(
