I'm a winner of NaNoWriMo 2011 and 2012!
The various titles reference the song "Gods of War" by Def Leppard.

"You think Yoda stops teaching, just because his student does not want to hear?
Yoda a teacher is. Yoda teaches like drunkards drink, like killers kill."

Master Yoda's philosophy of education, from Star Wars: Yoda: Dark Rendezvous.

My current icon set features Toph Bei Fong, my favorite character from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I made some screengrabs myself and got a couple from avatarspirit.net!

Anyway, Toph's so awesome she's awesome. ^_^

after dark: This is a project that I was working on a few years ago, a crossover involving many of my creative properties.
art: I'm a graphic artist, so this usually will lead you to something I've done. Sometimes it's another person's work.
code 47: This term comes from Star Trek; it's a post that should NOT be discussed outside of its own comments threads. Top secret!
damies only: A slightly lesser security level, this is for my IRL friends' eyes only.
friendship: A post wherein someone demonstrates true friendship.
gaming: Mostly about tabletop RPGs, but sometimes about video games and other types of gaming.
icons: When I do an icon post, it's rare!
meme: I do a lot of memes. Borrow the format if you like!
omgdrama: Mostly about OMGDRAMA (unnecessarily extreme drama that others bring into my life).
open channel: Zero security...rather rare since I've gone to Friends Only.
pick-a-mix: Nothing that's worthy of a full-blown post, so a bunch of little unrelated snippets thrown together.
poetry: I enjoy writing haiku, tankas, and even the occasional bit of free verse from time to time. It's not my literary focus, but it comes out of my brain sometimes whether I want it to or not!
poker: I play online poker, and sometimes feel the need to talk about it or brag about my results!
polls: I do an occasional LJ poll.
quiz: I do a lot of quizzes. There should be a link if you'd like to try it as well!
rage: I'm a pretty mellow fellow, but sometimes I get really angry or screwed over and I've got to write the bile out of my system.
rots: RotS is my magnum opus...usually accompanied by the "art" and/or "story" tags.
school: Mostly referring to my student teaching experience. I should change it to "happy times."
story: Usually my prose efforts.
t2d: Test to Destruction, my anime/manga influenced property.
trek: I'm a huge fan of Star Trek.
video: I post video links regularly...I hope that you enjoy them!
