Have you seen Hunger Games yet? If not, don’t read this post because I just might make your expectations ridiculously high.

I LOVED it. I’ve seen it twice now and still have no complaints. The weird thing is, I don’t know why I love it so much it because it is sooooo twisted. I knew how disturbing it was when I read the book, but seeing the story on the big screen made it more real. The concept of the whole entire plot is well, sick and wrong. And for some strange reason I love love love it, can’t get enough of it.

They couldn’t have picked a more perfect cast; they couldn’t have done a better job following the book; the soundtrack music was incredible; and I have to say that while I was team Peeta in the books, I am team Gale in the movies. If you’ve seen the movie then you probably understand my logic :)


The Hunger Games far exceeded my expectations.

Go see it!

breaking news

I never thought the day would come when I would post an entry such as this one, but guess what?


It’s been a whopping three days now since the blessed event and I feel…well…pretty much the same! I know that sounds a little unenthused, but let me explain:

I think everyone has a tendency to picture the way they think their life is going to go. When i was little, I pictured what it was going to be like to have a boyfriend; Last year, I pictured what it was going to be like when Rob got home from Switzerland in the fall; Recently, I pictured what it was going to be like when I got engaged; and you know what? Nothing is ever like I picture! I think the thing I love the most about my relationship with Rob is that it has all come so naturally. And when he was down on one knee holding the most stunning ring I have ever seen in my life, it felt like the most normal situation in the world. And by normal I also mean best, happiest, most perfect, moment in the world.

I've always been a little anti post-a-picture-of-the-ring, but now i understand, haha.

It’s all so surreal. One minute Rob and I are talking about getting married with the world completely clueless to our situation, and the next I’m engaged and the whole world knows it (thank you facebook). It’s certainly been a strange couple of days, but I mean it when I say I have spent them on cloud 9. I feel so lucky to have found someone who is even more than my match.

March 16th (hole #7 to be exact) was as perfect a day as they come!

So that’s that. I’m engaged.

gosh i love tuesdays!

I’ve been sitting at work for 7 hours too long…

-Listening to a boy obnoxiously laugh at something that can’t be nearly as funny as he is making it appear

-Stressing about what final classes to take before I, can you believe it, graduate!!!

-Day dreaming about July 14th…129 more days until OBX!

-Blog stalking my favorite cooking blogs drooling over food that my computer screen separates me from

-Taking quizzes…doing horribly on the one I actually studied for and acing the one I didn’t

-Loading paper, checking out laptops, and pretending to know a little something about computers

-Wishing I was in NY to be with my sister when she has her baby tomorrow

-Biting my nails far too short

-Sweating to death because the computer lab decided it wanted to be a sauna today

-And watching the clock slowly but surely move to the glorious number 5 which means I can finally clock out and do something exciting with my day! Oh wait, I have class at 5…sigh.

I never thought I’d say this, but I can’t wait for Chinese food later tonight!

For those who don’t know my feelings about chinese food…click here.

It's a little harsh, i know; but thanks to this charming boy Robert however, my tolerance level is greatly increasing.

This week we had a lecture in class about fear in the media. And let me tell you something...

I hate scary movies.

There is nothing fun about being on the edge of your seat

Why would i want to be paranoid about taking baths or babysitting?

There is nothing uplifting about creepy music

Even if you do have a cute boy to hold onto, nothing provides enough comfort to keep you from being terrified out of your mind

Why would I want nightmares gracing my dreams on a nightly basis for a month?

Why would i want to jump 5 feet in the air every time i hear a loud noise or a phone ringing?

In what world would I want goosebumps on my arm for 2 hours straight?

Why would i want to watch a movie where my hands have to be in a close enough proximity to cover my eyes in a split second?

Who wants to watch someone hallucinate or get chased or shot or be followed on a dark trail?

Have i made myself clear?


Maybe i just don't like scary movies because I'm not brave enough to handle them...

But either way, i think i will stick with movie genres that don't leave me feeling disturbed for the next decade.
