I go through phases of obsession with various and assorted things in life.
Here are five things I’m currently in love with, in no particular order.
1. Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal
Why am I obsessed with this? I really wish I could tell you. All I can say it’s kind of the greatest thing ever and probably the entire reason the internet was invented.
2. Gotye “Hearts A Mess”
“Your heart’s a mess,you won’t admit to it. It makes no sense, but I’m desperate to connect… and you can’t live like this.”
So good. On repeat all day, every day.
3. McDonald’s Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie
I hardly ever go to McDonald’s. If I do, it’s in the middle of the night with my friend to get drinks (generally coffee) before watching TV shows or a movie. On our most recent visit, I discovered their new Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie… *DROOL* I’ve had three in the past three days… I may or may not be drinking one right now. I know they’re probably super unhealthy, but I’m not looking. Ignorance is bliss… in my mouth.
4. ThisIsJustJo’s This Is Just To Say Vlog
This is my friend MJ’s YouTube channel. She moved to LA… uhh… way too long ago and I miss her face. Luckily for me, she created this weekly vlog which makes her face seem closer. I’m not trying to be biased here, but I think her videos are pretty quirky and endearing. I dare you to watch all of them and not want to hug her. Go ahead. Try it.
If you’ve been paying any attention to the media at all, I don’t need to tell you about the devastation that happened in my state just 5 days ago. While we’ve been through this kind of thing before, I promise you that this is on a new level.
The one silver lining of tragedy in this state is what it brings out in it’s people. I don’t even know where to begin – this community is unbelievable. Volunteers being turned away from the Red Cross because they have too much help, having to schedule appointments to donate blood because the centers are overrun, people driving hours across the state on a holiday weekend to spend their “time off” helping strangers collect what they can and start the rebuilding process… it’s just amazing. We have something special here in the heartland and it’s in tragedy that we shine the brightest. We will rebuild and we will come back stronger than before. It’s the Oklahoma way.
