Laying calmly, this polar bear from Animal World collection has no fear of the cold with its fur of sparkling diamonds. Now at Harrods London.
thoughts on a plane at 7:18 a.m., December 3, 2013
I’m on a freaking plane right now. Its so much different than the last time I flew. I’ve grown up a lot, become a lot more aware of everything around me. Which only brings paranoia.
I’ve had nausea since yesterday that I’m sure has nothing to do with the flight. I actually rather enjoyed takeoff. The sensation, the rush. Makes me wish I flew more often.
So many thoughts are going through my head, but mostly that the flight is only an hour and six minutes, so whatever panic I have in the back of my head, will soon be dismissable.

It’s crazy to me, to look out the windows and imagine what we’re flying over.
Kids in school.
People in rush hour traffic, honking and cursing.
Meanwhile, all I see is clouds. We’re so high, we’re above them. It’s surreal. In 23 minutes I’ll be Chicago. Finally. For the first time. The city I’ve been drawn to for as long as I can remember. This seems like a (really) long time coming.
I must say, I kind of hate the ending. Like, as in the last 50 pages. (Give or take, cause I’m not sure).
And the epilogue? Screw that.
I have some kind of unsettling closure for this series. It’s not that I didn’t want Katniss to end of with Peeta. I think that’s the only part of the ending I’m actually okay with.
What I think I dislike most is that they both seem unlike themselves. Peeta, never fully recovered (but apparently to a great deal if he wanted to marry Katniss)…and Katniss is shrunken down to almost nothing. After everything she went through.
And seriously with Gale disappearing? Ugh. And Prim dying?! What good came from that?! I know the answer, of course.
I’m really eager now to see this turned into a movie, although it’ll be distracting how much they leave out.
