After a brief celebration, the pair must once again leave their friends and family in order to embark on a “Victor’s Tour.” While visiting the other districts and preparing for the 75th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss realizes that a rebellion is slowly creeping its way into her world.

Cupid’s Advice:

Depending on the type of lifestyle you have, it might not be possible for you to see your family and friends on a regular basis. A situation like this can be tough for a person to handle, especially if they’re used to spending time with their loved ones often. Thankfully, with the way technology is set up now, we are able to keep in close contact with the people we love. Cupid has some tips:

1. Call regularly: Whether it’s for an hour or a quick five minutes, call your family and friends just to let them know you’re thinking about – especially if you’re on the road constantly. If your schedule doesn’t really allow you the time for much conversation, send a few text messages. Your loved ones want to stay in the loop with your life and they want to make sure you’re OK. Keep them updated, it’s the right thing to do.

2. Video chat: Technology nowadays makes it possible for almost every individual to see each other face-to-face using a cell phone or laptop. Even if you by chance have neither of these, a portable webcam doesn’t cost too much. Besides, seeing your family in real time will be worth the money you spend on the equipment.

3. Snail mail: Sending a letter or postcard is your next best option when all else fails. Mailing off little gifts and/or notes to all of the people you care about is a little more personal than just a standard e-mail. Plus, your loved ones will have something of yours to really hold on to until you get back from your travels.
