I remember you said, “Don’t leave me here alone,” but all that’s dead and gone and past tonight.

Hi hey hello,

I hope you all had a spectacular weekend! Mine was pretty good. Saturday was spent doing nothing but rereading Catching Fire and Mockingjay and listening to The Hunger Games Soundtrack. I love love love the books and so I decided to read them a second time to refresh my memory a little better. Sunday was spent out on the boat. We went out at Panacea and drove in the boat to Dog Island. Dog Island is an island that can only be reached by boat, there is no bridge or anything connecting it to land. It was a really cool day. I did sadly have to miss my good friend’s soccer game. I hope it went well Winston!

This is my last week before the mission trip. We leave a week from tomorrow. I cannot believe that in one week I will be finishing up my packing and getting ready to head out of the country. This is so exciting!

What did you all do this weekend? Got any big events coming up?



Took this heart and put it through hell, but still you’re magnificent. I, I’m a boomerang, doesn’t matter how you throw me, I turn around and I’m back in the game.

Hi hey hello,

Happy Thursday! As I mentioned yesterday, my friend, Kate’s, birthday was Monday. In celebration we saw The Hunger Games. We made shirts and everything. I was rather proud of mine. It was a black v-neck t-shirt with a spray painted red mockingjay symbol on it. It was faint so you could hardly see it. I LOVED it. I did seriously debate making a team Cinna shirt however. (Cinna may possibly be one of may favorites and I may possibly have cried at his fate.)

Something I did not mention was that my friend, Jenny’s, birthday was the same day as my dad’s. Due to the fact that I am an incredibly busy person and a horrible friend, I only just got her present to her on Monday. I made her duck print fleece pajama pants. Her initial reaction may have been the most amazing, priceless thing EVER. She said, “You made me PANTS?!” It was wonderful. Super simple and fun. She LOVED them. I may get around to post a picture of them, but no promises. 😛

Have a spectacular Thursday!


If only you saw what I can see, you’d understand why I want you so desperately. Right now I’m looking at you and I can’t believe, you don’t know you’re beautiful. That’s what makes you beautiful.

Hi hey hello,

Sorry for the complete lack of posting for the past two days. Sunday I was soaking up my last days of Spring Break, and Monday I was sick with a migraine. Hopefully I can power through the pain in my head to get a semi-decent post out.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Mine was spent doing about 142 things. Friday night, we had a surprise party for my mom’s birthday. I spent most of that day running around getting things ready for said party. It was really awesome and my mom loved it! She was surprised which was great because generally it isn’t super easy to pull things over on my mom. Saturday we had Diana’s birthday party. Hello Kitty themed and everything. It was fun, and though not many kids showed up, she had a blast, which was great!

I was actually productive Saturday night, I stayed up pretty late and worked on FLVS. I got a bunch done, which was awesome, seeing as I did NADA over most of SB. Sunday was the single busiest day… like ever. I left my house mid-morning Sunday, and my family and I were running around like crazy people until 6 pm. I was so unbelievably tired. Then my mom had me babysit while her, my dad, and Vlad went to see The Hunger Games. I had to wait a whole 18 hours before I got to see it. That was excruciating.

I went with Jenny and Kate, for Kate’s birthday to go see The Hunger Games. We officially decided that if they ever make another movie about a book we have read, the movie and book are two entirely separate entities. I LOVED  the book. And I really enjoyed the movie, but not together. There was just too much left out of the movie. Caught up in love for the story, I reread the first book, in two days. I would have read it faster, but I had a migraine and I forgot it at home while I was at school. It was very sad. I have not finished it and am itching to start the second one again.

What is your opinion of The Hunger Games? Love it? Hate it? Indifferent? Seen the movie?


May the odds be ever in your favor.
