re-reading The Hunger Games and I just realized that Katniss doesn’t tell us her name until she’s in the woods with Gale.

The paragraph before the main character name drop begins with:

  • "In the woods waits the only person with whom I can be myself. Gale." (6)




who you are in high school is not who you will be in college and who you are in college is not who you will be when you are 30.

when you accept that you are malleable and ever-changing, you will be less resistant to new ways of thinking and being and you will grow into the beautiful person you are meant to become.

resist the urge to remain stagnant. there are always things to learn about the world and yourself. let yourself learn them.
