Don’t fret faithful fans! Lionsgate has officially announced the theatrical release date of “Catching Fire.”  The second installment to the wildly popular HG franchise will be in theaters November 22, 2013 which is also being filmed for IMAX digital release.  “Catching Fire” will begin it’s filming the fall of this year, three weeks of which will be spent on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

Rumors have been circulating like crazy about casting for new characters.  In talks are Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund for Finnick Odair, while Kristen Bell has openly expressed interest in taking the role of Johanna Mason.  Reportedly, the role of Plutarch Heavensbee has been offered to Philip Seymour Hoffman, a move that would greatly contribute to the franchise’s already stellar cast.  If you missed out on “The Hunger Games” be sure to catch it on DVD/Blu-Ray when it is released this fall.

This is seriously training for college.  I can feel it.  Like, everything has a different vibe- the array of teachers’ with different personalities (and separate demands requirements,) the whole enlistment thing (lol, duh) and, well, the workload obviously.

It seriously only feels like it’s the 5th quarter (or whatever,) as if we just came from a sem break- same class, anyway.  Same faces.  Except one, though.  (Or I guess, two, but I’m emphasizing on the one.  If you read this, you know who you are.  COME BACKKKK.)

My school really was is my second home.  I’ll miss it.


I’ll sleep early, yes?

The Mask of Reason

I noticed at Comics Alliance a nice article on Boggle the Owl.  This is a great blog for those of us who struggle with depression.

I have, throughout my life, dealt with severe depression.  For most of my life it was un-diagnosed.  When I finally got help, it was still a very difficult thing to live with and I know both before and after I got help, I hurt people I cared about to the point that I pretty much destroyed my life.  I really wish I had known about or found the Boggle site, as much of what he says would have helped me out.  I’m in a much better place with my life now, but the pain and suffering both I and those around me went through is something I have to live with for the rest of my life.

If you know someone with depression, or…
