Recent Obsessions

     In case y'all didn't know, I'm obsessed with just about anything and everything, but usually I hide my obsessions and obsess discreetly (I'm a secret fangirl). But sometimes, I just can NOT get enough of some things and my obsessions spill out of me at full speed and everyone around me is swallowed up in an avalanche of fangirl-ishness. So, brace yourselves.

1. Social Media
Literally my life right now. I've been super addicted to Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, even freaking Google Plus (I know I know, who the hell has a Google Plus?). It's not even like I'm famous on one of my multiple accounts, I just love to go on them. Sometimes I don't even post anything, I'll just go on and stalk people. Is that bad? Meh. I don't know anymore.

2. Creepy Pasta
Does anyone else know of this website? It's and it's a FANTASTIC horror story website. People from all over the world can write their own horror story and it's posted for all to see, and rated. Ohmygosh it's wonderful and super creepy and PERFECT for campfires or bus rides. I can't get enough of it :) 

3. Youth Group
I don't know about anyone else, but I'll occasionally get these random bursts of religious inspiration. This month I've been attending my youth group a lot more than usual (it's fantastic and you should join mine if you know me) and I've been praying more and more. I've developed this newfound tolerance for people. I've begun to accept people and post more and more pictures of religious quotes on instagram. I don't really think this is an obessesion, but religion really has been affecting me. Meh. Idk. Thought I'd share.

4. Kit Kats and Crunch Bars
Halloween. Enough said.

5. Music
Now, I'm not talking music you hear on the radio, I'm talking about making music. Music has basically been taking over my life; I'm constantly practicing my bass clarinet for Area Band, practicing my piano for an upcoming recital, and learning how to play the bagpipes. I'm not complaining though. I love that music is taking over. It's better than drugs, right?

6. Catching Fire
If you haven't seen this movie, there's something seriously wrong with you. It doesn't matter if you haven't read the book or haven't seen the first movie; the entire backstory is perfectly explained. It's intense, emotional, and honestly, quite frightening. The revolution/rebellion scenes are intense. UGH IT'S SO GOOD

7. Candles
I'm such a typical white girl. Candles are the death of me. When I went to Home Goods the other day, I grabbed like 15 christmas cookie scented candles. It was probably the best day of my life. I don't know why, but candles make me feel all cozy and happy and safe. They're the most wonderful creations on this earth. They're the best thing since red velvet cake.
