If I see ONE MORE Twilight/Hunger Games relation....

I'm going to punch the person square in their fucking face.

Why is everyone relating Hunger Games to Twilight? Can someone fill me the fuck in, please? How on Earth are these two trilogies at all the same?!

All I've been hearing since Hunger Games announced it's movie:
Is Hunger Games finally going to replace Twilight? 
Hunger Games is so much better than Twilight!
I like Hunger Games better than Twilight!
I liked Twilight better than Hunger Games! (FREAK.)
Is Hunger Games the new Twilight?

Okay, idiots who keep comparing the two, here's the deal:
They are NOT in any way, shape, or form the same type of story. The only relations the two have is that they are both "Young Adult," trilogies, written by women, and went from book-to-movie.

That's it. Do you see any sort of comparison, here? Why relate the two? Just because of these familiarities listed above? If that's it, you might as well related Hunger Games to like 60 other movies. If not more. Probably a lot more. Someone told me that it's because both went from book to movie, and I just don't get why compare the two because of that? I mean, again they have absolutely nothing in common with their plots.

Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend (not my words, but can't find the direct quote). It's about a love triangle where a greedy, ignorant girl takes 3 books to decide which guy she wants to be with, and then when THAT finally happens, it's about if she wants to be a vampire or not.

Hunger Games isn't even supernatural. Everyone is human. It's about a girl who tries to gain the civilians of Panem freedom from their corrupt government that gives little to no fuck about them. It's about survival, the importance of family, friends, and standing together against a stronger evil. It's about doing what's right even if it's not what you want. It's about doing everything you can to keep your family and friends alive, and putting them before yourself.

So again, I'm completely fucking lost as to why EVERYONE is comparing the two. There's nothing to compare! Imagine if everyone was saying, I liked Hunger Games more than Titanic! Well, that's nice but how are the two plots even relevant?

I know I now sound like an over obsessed Hunger Games fan, but I'm not. I loved the book as much as the next person, but it's fucking annoying hearing everyone compare two totally different stories.

So it was my birthday mid February, and Mike took me to a shooting range! Unfortunately I only have one picture, since he didn't upload his own picture because he's got family on facebook and doesn't want them to know lol.

Okay, okay.

It's been months. MONTHS! I'm not usually this bad, and I have a really good reason!

I'm fucking tired. This semester is a no-nonsense semester. I've got accounting at fuckin' 8 in the morning, everyday, Monday through Thursday. As if accounting wasn't bad enough, it's early. I have to wake up at 6. I know, I know, there's a billion other people who wake up earlier than I do, but that doesn't make it much better. Then I've got math. We literally went from numbers to dividing and multiplying letters.

LETTERS. Is that even possible?! I swear they're just making this shit up so we have to stay in class longer. Oh, and the class is almost 3 hours long, with a not-so-merciful 10 minute break (I got a longer break with my 2 hour class!) Oy. At least the teacher is good.

Though I am being a bit of a wuss, since on Monday/Wednesday I'm home at around 1pm, and then I have a 3 day weekend... BUT STILL. I only have 3 classes, but they total 12 units, which is a full semester. Thank God I dropped my business class, or I don't know what I would do. Probably complain to Mike, which I already do quite often. Oh, how he puts up with me ♥ 

I've also been putting in job applications, which has worked and not worked. The first three places, to remain anonymous, had signs outside their little stores with "NOW HIRING!!" hanging. So I applied, like any other college student who's desperate for extra cash. Business number 1 told me, "we're not hiring right now, but we will be in a couple weeks. We're just accepting applications right now." That's great, so I went on my way, and called back 2 weeks later. Still not hiring, but they will in another few weeks! Call back a few weeks later, nope. Not hiring. 

Business number 2, a popular general department/drug/grocery store again had a nice big sign up for everyone to see, "NOW HIRING!" So Mike, even though he's been hired to a security company, decided to apply with me. I think it was to convince me to apply (though I didn't put up much of a fight :P) and the way their online application process goes is they have a list of all their positions, and you click on the ones you wish to apply for. Every single one, even the manager positions, weren't hiring. Mike tried his, too, and the same thing. So he went to ask one of the employees about why it's not working, and they said, "oh yeah, that sign is always up. We're not actually hiring."


Third place! Same scenario, had a sign, applications to take and fill out, etc. I do just that, and turn it in. Call back a couple weeks later, speak to the manager and he says, "I'm busy right now, but if you give me your name and number I'll call you back." He never did. So I decided to call back again, and surprise surprise! "Oh we're not hiring at this location." 

Like, fuck that. And I went over there a day or two after that (it was on the way to the grocery to Mikes old place) and guess what? They still had the sign up. 


Sadly, I'll still eat there because their food is delicious. Bad for you, but delicious. I can't win!

So, chop chop, I'm going to upload a bunch of pictures, and I'll put them on a schedule so they can update one a day or so, that way I won't bombard you. I've got a ton of them, most still need editing which I'm going to do now. 

Unless I fall asleep.
