“So far this was the BEST movie I  watched with someone :)”

The Hunger Games takes place in a nation known as Panem after the destruction of North America by some unknown apocalyptic event. Panem consists of a wealthy Capitol and twelve surrounding, poorer districts. District 12, where the book begins, is located in the coal-rich region that was formerly Appalachia.

As punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol in which a 13th district was destroyed, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected by annual lottery to participate in the Hunger Games, an event in which the participants (or “tributes”) must fight in an outdoor arena controlled by the Capitol, until only one remains. The story follows 16-year-old  Katniss Everdeen, a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th annual Hunger Games in place of her younger sister, Primrose. Also selected from District 12 is  Peeta Mellark, a baker’s son whom Katniss knows from school, and who once gave her bread when her family was starving.

Katniss and Peeta are taken to the Capitol where their drunken mentor, Haymitch Abernathy, victor of the 50th Hunger Games, instructs them to watch and learn the talents of the other tributes. They are then publicly displayed to the Capitol audience in a televised session with interviewer Caesar Flickerman. During this time, Peeta reveals on-air his long-time unrequited love for Katniss. Katniss believes this to be a ploy to gain audience support for the Games, which can be crucial for survival, as audience members are encouraged to send gifts like food, medicine, and tools to favored tributes during the Games. The Games begin with 11 of the 24 tributes killed in the first day, while Katniss relies on her well-practiced hunting and outdoor skills to survive. As the games continue, the tribute death toll increases. A few days later, Katniss develops an alliance with Rue, a 12-year-old girl from the agricultural District 11 who reminds Katniss of her sister Prim. The alliance is short-lived: Rue is killed by another tribute. At Rue’s request Katniss sings to her, then spreads flowers over her body as a sign of respect—and of disgust towards the Capitol.

Supposedly due to Katniss and Peeta’s beloved image in the minds of the audience as  “star-crossed lovers”, a rule change is announced midway through the Games, stating that two tributes from the same district can win the Hunger Games as a pair. Upon hearing this, Katniss searches for Peeta and eventually finds him wounded. As she nurses him back to health, she acts the part of a young girl falling in love to gain more favor with the audience and, consequently, gifts from her sponsors. When the couple is finally the last two tributes, the Gamemakers reverse the rule change in an attempt to force them into a dramatic finale, where one must kill the other to win. Katniss, knowing that the Gamemakers would rather have two victors than none, retrieves highly poisonous berries known as “nightlock” from her pouch and offers some to Peeta. Upon realizing that Katniss and Peeta intend to commit suicide, the Gamemakers announce that both will be the victors of the 74th Hunger Games.

Although she survives the ordeal in the arena and is treated to a hero’s welcome in the Capitol, Katniss is warned by Haymitch that she has now become a political target after defying her society’s authoritarian leaders so publicly. Afterwards, Peeta is heartbroken when he learns that Katniss’s actions in the arena were part of a calculated ploy to earn sympathy from the audience. However, Katniss is unsure of her own feelings, and realizes that she is dreading the moment when she and Peeta will go their separate ways.

yesterday’s homily ..

After my exam yesterday I decided to go to church to let my soul be enlightened by the words of God. I went their with someone. We together hear the words of God. I was surprised by the priest’s homily, the priest said; “Even how many times a person can hurt you, you must be ready enough to forget what was he/she has done. You should not look him/her by his/her mistake it will only add burden to your life. You must reminisce  the past happy moments with that person who hurt you. You should look back what are the good things he/she has done unto you.You should forgive and forget, you never know when your life end. You should cherish the time given to you by God. You must not spend your time by fighting with someone”. that homily inspires me because sometimes I only look with those mistakes not with the good thing a person has done to me. I was being enlightened. The homily really make’s my outlook in life new. Thank’s be to GOD 🙂

reality ..

“Teenagers are growing up so fast, and they think they know what true love is, but the fact is that, they really don’t know”.

Young adults supposedly ‘loved’ each other, but then why is it that it didn’t last? Are we simply fooling ourselves over boredom and loneliness, or is love just a trend running through schools today?When you look into magazines and on TV, do you know how many couples break up over work and cheating, the likely hood of getting married from teenage hood is low, and we just need to face reality.In my opinion, we shouldn’t be caring about whose dating who, and who’s hot and whose not. We should be enjoying life, and being young. We only get to be a child once, and we shouldn’t just give love away like an article of clothing.

Yes, young love has happened, and can be true. But you have to ask yourself, is your love puppy love or real love. Young love is running in our society today, and it is not always bad. But people need to start realizing that there are more important things in life, than dating the popular guy in school, enjoy your childhood, because before you know it, you are going to be a adult, and you can’t go back, it’s not the end of the world, if you pay attention to your school grades and not on boys or girls. There’s plenty of time to find true love, and teenagers are getting too caught up.Maybe if teenagers today started focusing and loving themselves, they’d be a happier and more successful person. And eventually instead of them looking for love, true love will finally reach them.

They made me feel better

I end up to be in the hospital .. I was confined there for one day. Last February 23 After my class my best friend honey jane texted  me that we will meet. Unfortunately she didn’t came ..  I end up alone in the place where we should meet.. It feels so boring and I thought of watching movie with someone.  He then came up to see me . After watching, I went to the boarding house to make my report for the following day and to have some  rest for the long day was over.  But all of the sudden I feel  very cold and my body starts to tremble. I don’t know what happened to me. Nobody was there my board-mates  was out to have some dinner. I was the one left alone. I don’t know what to do. When I slowly feel better I then sleep. For the following day I feel better but after eating my meal my body starts to tremble again. I really dont know what to do because what I feel the other day was becoming stronger. My boardmates don’t know what to do. They got panic so they send me to the hospital. They then told my parents of what happened to me. So my parents went over to the hospital to visit me if im ok. After seeing them I totally get better. The doctor gave me some medicine to take in order for me not to feel that again. Being by the side of my parents make’s me feel real better.
