This is my attempt at trying to blog more frequently, so I'm going to try to do a "Lessons Learned From..." series. We'll see how it goes.
First up is Catching Fire. Oh my. Here are the lessons I learned from it:
1. Tearing up comes naturally when Jennifer Lawrence is onscreen being emotionally distressed.
2. Wearing a mockingjay necklace to the movie is totally cool.
2b. Until you walk out after the movie and a line of people is there staring at you as you leave.
3. Peeta is, and always will be, the obvious choice. At least to me. (He bakes, he's caring. Only problem=he keeps almost dying, but, I mean, everyone has their flaws.)
4. Stories are almost (almost) always better when characters tragically die. It pulls you in.
5. The word "catnip" will never sound cool, no matter how many times Liam Hemsworth says it.
6. Even shallow people have deep feelings. *Oh, Effie*
7. Sometimes making friends comes easiest when you don't really want to make friends.
8. Keep people that are close to you in the loop.
9. Keeping people close to you doesn't always mean they won't get hurt.
10. There is always a bigger picture. Your plan is only a tiny part of that bigger picture, and sometimes, it's not even in the bigger picture. It's like, your plan is right outside the force field that is the bigger picture, and you don't know about it until you shoot a kink in it and a plane comes down in the hole you shot in the bigger picture and takes you away and you wake up and then someone tells you the bigger picture.
Phew...did that one make sense?
Also, Catching Fire is just a really good movie. Go see it while you have the chance!
