How long did I sleep? I look out the window, no light shines in. I wonder about that. The forest outside was so entrenched that not a droplet of light shone through. I wonder how it is I can see…some light is coming through, but it looks like nothing more than a misty glow. The … Continue reading
I tried to leave quietly. And as I left, I lit a candle and left it in the hallway…out of sight, but giving shadows. I don’t think she cried. At least, not while I was nearby. What does crying sound like anyway…. What would it feel like to cry? I think back on my howls, … Continue reading
I can see her eyes. She is squinting and trying to look at me. I slowly turn my head from side to side. No light. I don’t think she gets much. She has to feel my breath though, she has to feel how close I am…I am in no way small…I make an effort not … Continue reading
Katniss Everdeen is not a typical girl! (this article was written after my blog) 1. When I first read the first chapter I wasn’t sure if Katniss was a girl or Gale was a girl….. 2. She can’t lie: Notice how she’s always the last to know about the real plot (wait Peeta is actually … Continue reading

Ever notice when Cinderella is about to whoop Lucifer? I’m not a fan of animal abuse, but it seems to be pretty gutsy!
“I have no idea where I’m going” I mutter these words to myself and hear my mother step outside just behind me. One day I’m home, and the next I’m here, muttering to myself.
