6 Things I’m Really Loving Right Now

When I get really excited about something, I absolutely cannot keep it to myself. This happens every week. I find new things that pump me up, and I can’t stop talking about them.

Lucky for you, I just realized I can tell blog peeps about them now too. Muahahahahaahaha.

No, but seriously, I hope you enjoy these. :)

6 Things I’m Really Loving Right Now

1. Vlog Brothers, specifically this video about Net Neutrality

You guys, I’ve been wondering how all of this would pan out, and it’s not looking good. The FCC just passed a proposal with rules about net neutralilty in a 3-2 vote. But there’s still hope. Listen to Hank…


So, right now, I ask you to please go to this FCC page and tell the FCC that they should reclassify broadband internet as a telecommunications (or “Common carrier”) service.

Thank you!

2. The early screening of The Fault in Our Stars (June 5)!!!

the fault in our stars early screening


YOU GUYS!! Please go to this website and see if an early showing of The Fault in Our Stars is showing in a theater near you.

I just got tickets, and I want to use all the exclamation points. The tickets come with a charm bracelet and an exclusive poster. AHHH!!!!

3. Actually finishing two series (in a row!!)

This is a record for me. I struggle with non-finish-itis, and it’s fatal. On the menu – Graduation Day AND The One.

Coming up will be Ruin and Rising, The Retribution of Mara Dyer and Unmade (Lynburn Legacy #3).

4. Trying to cut out coffee and replace it with tea

So, this is a terrible idea, I know. But I recently achieved a weight loss goal that I’m super proud of. Part of my morning routine, is a cup of coffee…loaded with creamer.

In order to maintain my healthy lifestyle, I think it’s about time to see if I can kick my caffeine and sugar addiction.

Your prayers and positive thoughts are welcome.

5. Super exciting fall reads

Um, what is happening. It’s like publishers all back-loaded their YA releases this year. This fall is going to be busy…

6. This web comic by The Oatmeal about the Tesla Model S and the Tesla Museum

The Oatmeal is a genius. He knows how to harness his blog and his interests for good. In this latest web comic reviewing his Tesla Model S, he not only sells the cars killer features like a pro, but he garners the attention of one of the wealthiest and savvy businessmen of our time, Elon Musk.

I hope to visit the Tesla Museum one day. Ah-mazing.

What are you absolutely loving today??
