Like I need another pet. Oh well.

- The International Space Station weighs about 500 tons and is the same size as Kira!
- Kira is often used in place of milk in food photography, because milk goes soggy more quickly than Kira.
- Kira was banned from Finland because of not wearing pants.
- Japan provides over thirty percent of the world's Kira supply.
- Kira is incapable of sleep.
- Kira can drink over 25 gallons of water at a time.
- Never store Kira at room temperature.
- A lump of Kira the size of a matchbox can be flattened into a sheet the size of a tennis court.
- Two thirds of the world's eggplant is grown in Kira!
- Wearing headphones for an hour will increase the amount of Kira in your ear 700 times.
Hmm. I don't think that I've ever actually been to Finland.

Don't try to tell me that I don't understand what it is to lose something precious.Leave a comment
I am a healer. I have been one as long as I can remember. I was born with it, and it's never occured to me to just neglect my talent for it. I've never been able to stand aside while people were sick or hurt. That was why I got involved in the wars. I knew, without a doubt, that if I didn't go, more people would die. It wouldn't have mattered if it was only one, but I knew that the difference would eventually tally in the hundreds.
If I lived long enough.
Healers are generally spared, but not always. And even thought I never suffered a wound inflicted by an enemy, I have plenty of scars from those years. You can't see them, though. They're on my heart and my soul, rather than on my skin.
Most people are sad when a good man dies, but not many feel the loss like I do. It's something deeply sad, to be there when they finally let go... when their body just gives up, even when their spirit would fight on.
I became used to seeing blood. It doesn't bother me now. The dying still does, and always will. It's just not something I could get used to... something that I would come to accept so that it didn't make me feel such anguish.
I think that's why I've never dared attach myself too much to any one person. It hurts bad enough to lose anyone as it is, could I stand to lose someone who meant the world to me?
That's what I thought before, but I've finally learned that you can't live your life constantly worrying about what's going to happen in the future. Nor can you waste your life away by dwelling in the past, hanging onto old memories. Never forgotten, ever loved.
I know, I've gotten way too introspective lately. And depressed. I'm just not sure what I need to do with myself.
