On 'The Hunger Games': Bloodless, Sexless and Not Very Hungry

It's a shame that a quality piece of hyped up YA dystopic fiction has come on the heels of hyped films/books that are much less deserving of attention. I think most of the snarky comments and blurbs (e.g.: It's just like Twilight Royale and girls can't fight anyway OMG she's looking at two male teenagers LOVE TRIANGLE EW EMOTIONS ARE GROSS AND GIRLS CAN'T FIGHT ANYWAY) were written in the reviewers' heads long before they actually saw the film. The movie itself is almost besides the point. The actual story is just fodder for YouTube clips and hastily created Twitter hashtags of disdain.

On My Superpower Is Being Alone Forever

I met my boyfriend of three years on OKCupid. However, we did have to get through a week-long hospitalization (his) and a random desire to watch every Biggie/Tupac conspiracy video on YouTube (mine) before reaching a point of stability. Totally worth it!
