Being Katniss

I’m obsessed with Katniss Everdeen, the heroine from The Hunger Games.  She’s no damsel in distress, she’s a bad ass.  I fell in love with the books and surprisingly, the movie as well.  Because I’m always trying random things, I wanted to find my inner Katniss by taking an archery lesson.  Queens Archery is one of the only two indoor archery places in nyc.  Queens Archery is located in Flushing, Queens, which I have a soft spot for.  For one, I was born in Flushing; two, my grandmother used to live there; and three, my family and I go there often for Korean food.  For $20 you get an hour of shooting, a rental, and a brief tutorial on how to shoot.  It was incredibly fun and I became obsessed with hitting the x.  I never thought that shooting with a bow and arrow would feel so empowering.  I did feel a little Katniss inside of me.
