Chins Up, Smile On.

Happy Monday!

Usually, this is the day of the week that I hate most, but I got more than 5 hours of sleep last night and there are only 3 days until national gluttony day Thanksgiving so I'm in a good mood.

I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty low key, except for the fact that I GOT TO SEE CATCHING FIRE. It everything I wanted it to be and more. I laughed, I cried, I got mad that Plutarch didn't show Katniss his watch, but mostly I fangirled. It is every book lover's dream that the movie adaptation is true to the story line and it was for the most part. I want to see it again and again. What are you waiting for? Walk away from the computer and go see it - I'll wait. When you get back we'll discuss Finnick's abs and Effie's eyelashes.
Since this week is going to be kind of crazy, I'm writing my mini goals list here so I can keep myself accountable.

  • Deaf event essay - due Monday 5 pm 
  • Audiology online quiz - due Tuesday 2 pm
  • Online observation and language sampling analysis - due Tuesday night 11:59 pm
  • Evaluation report - due 12/3
To help you get through your Monday...

  1. Good luck with your goals! I haven't seen Catching Fire yet but I am so excited (my sister told me about the watch thing too, how annoying!!)

  2. I'm a HUGE fan of the book series, but I've been taking my time watching the movies because I'm so scared they won't live up! I'm glad you loved it though!

    I'm your newest follower :)

  3. I'm glad to hear it was good!! I'm going to see it either tomorrow or Wednesday, I'm excited :)

  4. Can't wait to see Catching Fire!!

  5. Just saw it yesterday and already want to see it AGAIN!

  6. I am going to see it tomorrow or maybe tonight! lol Can't wait!

  7. I can't wait to see it!! And good luck with your busy week :)

  8. But seriously, these GIF's!!! Man oh man I loved that. The elevator scene had to be one of my favorites with JLaw, I was so happy they left that in!

  9. We saw Catching Fire this weekend and loved it! Those GIFS are great :D

  10. Yeah, I giggled ALLL the way through the elevator scene. Boyfriend hasn't read the books yet (though I think I finally convinced him to after this movie), so he didn't find it quite hilarious as I did. Plus I think there is legit something wrong with him because he isn't nearly as obsessed with JLaw as I am, and I'm pretty sure that all normal and self-respecting people fancy themselves besties with her like I do, because she is basically the coolest thing ever. So there's that. Also, I just got carried away here. Whoopsie.

  11. I loved Catching Fire! It was awesome!

  12. ooh i can't wait to see it this week! they filmed it here in atlanta; some of it, anyway!

  13. I know this is probably lame, but I'll never forgive the casting folks for teasing me with Finnick being played by the guy who plays Dr. Avery on Grey's Anatomy (Jesse Williams.. UNF), and then instead it's some dude with blonde hair. UGH. When I re-read the book, I was happily picturing Jesse as Finnick, and then this post reminded me that they went in another direction. Boo!

    I mean, other than that, I'm so stoked to see the movie! I didn't mean to be a Debbie Downer! I'll just blame the fact that I'm still sick...

    K, I'm running away before you choose to hate me!


I love reading your comments and I try respond to every one. Thanks for reading!
