Catching Fire

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

That was one of the best movies I ever saw! I went to Edwards in Mira Mesa tonight with Lovisa to see the sequel to The Hunger Games. I’m very often disappointed in the movies because they are nothing at all like the books. Like for example Under the Dome. I finished that book like a week ago and started watching the new TV series a few days after. 20 minutes into the first episode I was so disappointed. They changed everything! In the book “Barbie” is a good guy who has been in Chester’s Mill forever, but in the series he is an outsider and a murderer, but is still supposed to be the hero. They changed all the relationships, all the people’s work, and added husbands where there weren’t supposed to be any. It was a pretty simple story to begin with, why change everything except the Dome?? But these movies are exactly like the books and I recognized and understood everything. I want to see it again!!

Before the movie we went to Islands. They have amazing hamburgers, especially the Hawaiian one with pineapple and teriyaki sauce. Way too many calories, but today that was okay, because today was my goodbye to that place. If I am gonna leave this place in peace I have to say goodbye to everything and not go back wishing I would have gone to that particular place once more. I think I have to start to mentally prepare myself. It’s just 53 days until I leave for Hawaii!

My day before that was really nice. I stayed in bed while Chad went to the Sheriff shooting range to practice early in the morning. When he got home and woke me up we drove to Ponto and played a lot of beachvolley. It wasn’t very warm, but playing in shorts and a tank top was no problem at all. And I played really well today, even if it was a little bit windy. In the beginning could the tiniest of winds get into my head and totally disturb my playing. But today I didn’t think about it. I was just enjoying one of my last Saturdays playing beachvolley at the beach. Depending on the weather, I should have like 4-5 Saturdays left. But the weather is rather unpredictable this time of year. But today was nice, and I saw dolphins and I really hope that wasn’t the last time!

My hostfamily is in San Francisco now so I have the house all to myself until Tuesday evening. That also means that I have a four-day weekend now! It’s gonna be unbelievably nice to be home and just relax. No trips, just being home, reading, working out and sleeping. On Wednesday I have to work again, and then comes Thanksgiving. Another four-day weekend. Awesome! 🙂

I made a “Starburst” for the boy and it took almost an hour. There were many tiny steps and a lot of rubber bands to keep track on. But I did it!Rainbow Loom Starburst
