The book was very sad yet exciting, filling the post-apocalyptic setting that I tend to enjoy. Though very fast-paced, the book has slower moments where we wait with our main character, Katniss Everdeen, and learn of her life at home and the moments that make her herself. There was action, adventure, and a bit of romance. I'm learning that I am enjoying books about girls in tough situations that they somehow overcome, with skill and/ or luck. They aren't Mary Sues who have everything handed to them. And that's the kind of strength that needs to be shown to little girls. This book, though for young adults, has a strong dark side, a side of war that not many people have to witness or endure, where teenagers kill other teenagers for survival. This story makes the horror a lot more structured, but spares us no details of the horrific sights Katniss endured while participating in the games and surviving. I cannot wait to read the aftermath.

I really don't understand what goes through your heads sometimes. Ok, most of the times. Mostly because you seek out your prey, usually just standing there, looking for girls to eventually grind up. The reason most girls find you generally unwelcome is because you come at us like sharks at a carcass. You don't approach in a "fun" way, like dancing up to us or using your hands to point us out and shouting "yeah!" You're not even dancing half the time! You just sneak up behind us and BAM! Suddenly our hips are in the rather firm grasp of your hands. Please stop, especially if we tell you to. What middle school or person never taught you that "no" means "no." I get that most of us lady-folk like an aggressive man, but there's aggressive as in assertive and aggressive as in being pushy. We like our space sometimes, or sometimes we just want to dance on our own. If you respect this, maybe girls will dance with you. But since your aggressive tactics push us away from you (literally), you might think we're bitches. Well, some of us are. But mostly, we just want our space.

So, as usual, I make resolutions every year mostly based on the mistakes I make the year before. Though 2011 was fairly difficult, I achieved most of my goals and so now, naturally, it's time to make new ones. Here they are!
- Weigh 135 pounds by December 31st, 2012
- Maintain my closes friendships
- Bring my protein intake down to 25% (I was going to shoot for 10%-15%, but baby steps)
- Increase my intake of fruits and vegetables
- Bake everything in Babycakes by the end of 2012 (and blog about it)
- Post 3 looks a week on lookbook.nu
- Actually maintain my music tumblr
- Read 5 to 10 books
What are your resolutions?
