Soccer and Spring Break

Sorry for not posting lately! I've been busy with soccer practice all week and learned that I'm super out of shape and sore. My muscles hurt! Today we had a choice of doing Indian Runs or Sprints and we chose sprints... neither are very good choices but I would rather have had the first option because we could all run slowly and make it easy for each other (in an Indian Run, you have to run in a single file line and the last person has to sprint up to the front of the line and so on 'till everybody's done) but sprints would have been shorter so that was good. Anyway, they are killers! Thankfully soccer is done for the week because our coach will be heading off for vacation tomorrow and we don't have school Friday on account of spring break! Yay!
NONE OF THESE PEOPLE ARE ME!
I found this on Google.
Just some friendly advice,
never Google search "soccer girls"

I'm going to Pennsylvania to visit my aunt and uncle and their three kids just like we do every single spring break. But this time, I'll be seeing my new cousin Eliana for the first time! She is such a cute baby (at least from the pictures I've seen)! Where are you going for spring vacation(if you have one)? Are you planning anything fun? I really want to know where you're all going! I think that my aunt and I are gonna go to the Hunger Games again... at least I hope!
Remember to vote on the pole on the right side of my blog under the "What I'm currently reading" thing!

So I was shopping at a second hand shop searching for the good bargains tonight and I saw this really sweet bag that I want. It's from Guatemala because that is what the store is raising money for. Sadly the bad is a little expensive so I'll be saving up for a little bit.

Hunger Games Movie

Hey everyone! So yesterday I went to see the Hunger Games! Guess how much it made in it's first weekend. 155 million dollars! That is a ton of money and that's just in the US! So I was a little disappointed because they changed a few things and the movie wasn't as good as I thought it'd be... it was still good, don't get me wrong, but the book was much better in my opinion. Anyway, they added some unnecessary language that was not in the book and Buttercup, ya know, Prim's cat who's supposed to be ugly, was cute. Katniss and Peeta's fire suits were pretty lame in my opinion too. I liked my imagination picture of them better.
SPOILER ALERT! Close your eyes and scroll down if you haven't already read the book and plan to!












So when Rue dies, she doesn't even look like she is
in pain! She just gets hit by a spear and stands there looking shocked, pulls it out, and then faints. And when she is laying with her head on Katniss's lap, she isn't really crying. Well she is but she's not in any pain at all, or so it appears. I was also disappointed because Katniss didn't weave flowers in her hair. She just laid some on her chest.








































Ok you can look now! They changed the ending a little too. Plus the people in the row behind us were talking the whole time. And they weren't whispering, they were talking! Rude! It was funny though cause there was a little girl who had to go out of the theater a couple times and she had those light up shoes that you could see all the way down the aisle thing! Enjoy some new movie pictures! I apoligize in advance if the pictures are not in order. It's a pain to move a whole bunch of pictures around in my computer.

Hopefully you saw some pictures that you haven't seen before and aren't disappointed because I didn't add your favorite one. I tried to add some that just came out instead of those that have been out for a while!
Love,
July
PS I made myself a Team Gale shirt for the movie (just to hold me over till we make our official ones Sea and Christine!) and it is pretty cool! On the front it obviously says Team Gale and on the back it says Hey Catnip!

Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Hello! Or should I say Happy Hunger Games? Who's going to the movie? Or who has gone? Tell me if you like the book or movie better. I'm going tomorrow sometime and I can't wait! Sorry I can't post long today. I'm about to go on a serious date with some junk food! No I'm not fat, but I NEED food right now! As I told Sea J. I haven't had any junk food for a whole week and I'm craving it!

Chicks with Sticks!

Hey everyone! Remember a long time ago when I did the Fashion Faux Pas for a Megan (MDBC)? Well today Sea told me that I should do another one. So... I'm gonna do Cassidy's (also from MDBC) Chicks with Sticks! Except that there aren't many girls hockey teams around. So I'm gonna post lots of hockey mascots and other random hockey stuff that I find. If you don't know, in book one (I think) Cassidy and her family move to Concord and she is a total tom-boy. So anyway, Emma's brother Darcy helps sneak Cassidy into the boy's team tryouts (1. there wasn't a girls team and 2. because her mother didn't want her playing hockey) and she made the team! So later on, Cassidy with the help of Mrs. Bergson (an Olympic figure skater) starts a girls hockey program called Chicks with Sticks to teach little girls to skate and play hockey... So there you have it! Welcome to Hockey Town! 
New York Rangers:
How huggable!
Fun fact - the team has a plush mascot!

New York Islanders:
Boo! Ha got ya!

New Jersey Devils:
Um... ok. I wouldn't dress up in this costume.

Detroit Red Wings (my #1 team):
Yes, this is their mascot, he's not a person
though, he floats around the top or the rink.

I guess it's a special kind of octopus!
Nashville Predators:
Break dancing! Nice moves!

himself! I wonder if it's his kid ;)
Ottawa Senators:
Ooooooh! Somebody's in luuuuuv!
Close your eyes!
Toronto Maple Leafs:
Quick question: why is it a polar bear when the
team name is Maple Leafs?
Carolina Hurricanes:
Wow look at his skates! They're huge!
Then again... he's not the smallest creature in the
Hockey Town either...
Florida Panthers:
