If I ever for some crazy, weird, alternate universe or earth shattering reason gain any type of notoriety within the soccer blogging/podcasting/writing world I honestly hope that I always remember to check my ego at the door every morning. There is nothing worse than a pretentious soccer reporter. Nothing worse.
I logged in to check the length requirements of my World Lit paper and I found out the due date got changed to the 4th. Lawdy Hallelujahs the world is smiling at me today.
Stuff I should do:
Write my World Lit Paper that’s due tonight. My math homework. Take my Sociology Test, and/or Study for my Anthropology Quiz What I’m actually doing: lusting over the Shiro Hunger Games eyeshadows and talking to my editor about my Dynamo follow up post.
Is it kosher to call the US Sweepstates Co. and demand that they tell me whether or not they’ve done the drawing for the InStyle Hunger Games contest yet? Is that a thing?
Finish the Dynamo Article I’m working on before I start my World Lit paper that is due today? Yeah.
Finally got around to watching the new spot with Safe & Sound playing over it. Ugh I am going to cry so many tears when this movie comes out. Whatever. 22 more days.
In other news I ran across a copy of Nylon Guys yesterday at the grocery store so I bought it and read the article (which was actually really interesting and they didn’t even talk TOO much about the hunger games which was nice) and I found out that apparently Josh has already got the rights to adapt a book called Echo and he plans on writing, producing, directing, and starring in it. I...
I just want to watch Martha Marcy May Marlene but I have homework due at midnight and I left my computer charger at my office so I am at my parents house macking on my sister’s charger and I left my anthropology book at my apartment so I have to sit here until I have a full battery so I can go home and take my anthro test and still have enough battery to do more homework tomorrow. le sigh
true life: I can and do completely separate Josh and Peeta in my mind. Especially when he does interviews and they have the Peeta poster behind him. I find myself thinking “that’s not even him! what is he talking about?!” and I think that because I can do this I will enjoy the movie more.

I wrote this the day we lost to Ghana in the World Cup: For the Americans who have consistently put down Team USA because “we don’t deserve to be there, and are nothing Internationally” it’s time to remember that this sport is always evolving. If you love the sport so much, shouldn’t you be proud that your country worked so hard to qualify for this tournament? That your countrymen have trained so...
I should really get around to getting a new student ID. There are so many discounts I could be getting! Whatever I’m still bitter that I lost my old one when it had like $8 worth of printing credits on it in the library.
Hunger Games Midnight ticket Q's answered:
Tickets are SUPPOSED to be widely available as of now, but not all of the theaters have posted their movie times on movietickets.com or fandango. Keep checking before you buy at a theater an hour away from your house and then realize that your theater was having a showing after all. Remember that not ALL theaters are serviced through fandango. If your theater is not listed on fandango, look on...
Hunger Games Tickets Q:
Are you guys all just buying regular tickets or has anyone held out to get midnight tickets for an IMAX screening? Just curious because it looks to me like only regular tickets are on sale and the IMAX tickets are being put up later, but I could be wrong.

So yeah, help? movietickets.com and fandango.com are the sites that most theaters around the country use to sell their online...
I no longer have the ability to get excited when Lionsgate announces they’re releasing “new” stuff for the hunger games. It’s always just the same scenes in a different order, or mayyyybe a few seconds of new stuff. Or it’s an HQ still from a scene that was released ages ago. They prey on the fans excitement and use it as a way to create buzz without releasing...
Ugh the MLS is such a male dominated work force. I feel like the high concentration of women in the Dynamo front office has given me a skewed perception of the entire MLS work force.
Recently we’ve started seriously talking about moving to Dallas in the next 1 - 2 years. It’s kind of freaking me out, but only because I can’t imagine not being able to go to Dynamo games all season, and even though my group of friends isn’t HUGE like it was in San Antonio, I can’t imagine moving away from them. When I moved from San Antonio losing my friend circle...
heythereivannah replied to your post: Unpopular Opinion of the week: the toilet is that way.
Unpopular Opinion of the week:
I will never get over the fact that lionsgate is making Gale a main character. No. He was always a secondary character. He was always who Katniss kinda forgot about but then oh yeah what about Gale, oops. He’s not even a main character until Mockingjay. Just let Liam act as little as possible until then because he is actually awful.
Is there a shirt that says “I’m kind of a big deal in my world literature class”? Because I kind of am. Even when I don’t post until an hour before the deadline I get at least 5 responses and all of them fall all over themselves asking me about my sources and substantiating my theories. And then I get a 120 for every discussion.
I just read somewhere that colorful camo is one of Spring ‘12’s “most wearable trends” No. Just. No.
