My Current Obsessions

         Obsessions: a compulsive preoccupation with something (or someone).  We all have them and it's time for me to share my current ones with you.

1// Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
She has become one of my all-time favorite authors!  Seriously though, her ability to draw the reader into such a detailed world is genius.  I was wrapped-up in the story by the mere second page!  If you haven't yet, you need to read the series: Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant.

2// The Star Trek Movies with Chris Pine
Thanks to my awesome roommate (who likes to stay anonymous), I am now obsessed with these movies.  Honestly, I can't tell if my obsessions lies for the story as much as Chris Pine's Face.

3// My Camera
For the last few weeks I've been feeling a little under-the-weather.  One thing that happens when I get sick is I get grumpy.  In order to stop myself from saying anything I'll regret, I've recently been going for short walks around campus to take random pictures.  I've really enjoyed this personal 'me' time, and I've taken a few really cool pictures because of it.

4// Crew-necks
With cooler weather heading our way, I've recently found great comfort in crew-neck sweaters.  I currently own around 5 of them, and I love them all.  My favorite would have to be my grey one that says "Short Girl Swag".  It's definitely a one-of-a-kind on campus.

5// Footie Pajamas
The roommates and I like to keep our room slightly colder than usual.  This obviously isn't a problem with me, because I'll take any opportunity to cuddle-up in my comforter or wear my footie pajamas!

6// "Story of My Life" by One Direction
Not only is the song awesome, but the music video almost moved me to tears!  I was actually really apprehensive about this next album, because it's true to say I'm not as 'obsessed' with them as I used to be.  Like all good obsessions (The Jonas Brothers), my One Direction obsession has died down a bit.  However, this song is awesome and a lot different from their past music.  I don't know if this is a permanent twist in their musical journey, but I would love to hear more songs like this.

7// Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Now that I've finished (and recovered) from the Divergent Series, I've picked up Fangirl.  I've only got through a few chapters, but I can already tell that the main character and I are very similar.  No, I don't write (let alone read) fan fiction and I'm not nearly as big of an introvert as she is; however, she is like the Lizzy inside of me.  Thankfully, I have found a way to suppress her so I do have a social life outside of reading and writing.  I haven't finished this yet, but I have already fallen in love.

What are some of your recent obsessions?


  1. Divergent, ahhhh! I love that book! One of my all-time favorites. Same for Fangirl!

    1. They were both amazing! I actually live where Fangirl was set. I plan to go see if there's anyone who works at the downtown Starbuck's named Levi :)

  2. Ohh pajamas are my obsessions too! Soft & comfy!
    Honestly, One Direction surprised me by this song. I can't stop listening to this song!

    1. Same! I was expecting another 'Boy-band love-struck' song, but this was actually really cool! With a good message too :) Thanks for visiting!
