Besides being blog-obsessed, I really love the news and knowing everything important and “newsy” that is going on around me, around the country, and around the world. Therefore, I pay close attention to the news and am always looking for news sources that really interest me. One news source that I really like, and probably because it is in a blog format, is The Huffington Post.

Being young, I love news sources that have breaking, serious, important news as well as funny, interesting and entertaining news. HuffPost has all of these kinds of stories. There is something for everyone to enjoy on this site.
There are breaking news stories on important political stories: Largely White Audience Turns Out To Hear Rand Paul Speak At African-American Outreach Event.

There are random yet still newsworthy stories: Newlyweds Elytte And Miranda Barbour Killed A Man For Fun, Police Say.

And of course there are those silly, not-so-important yet entertaining stories: Miley Cyrus’ Jingle Ball Performance Of ‘#Getitright’ Features Santa Twerking And Plenty Of Glitter.

The time has come. Thanksgiving has passed and now Christmas has the full attention of all those who celebrate it. And now that it is December, winter is officially here (even though it’s in the 60s here in Columbia, MO). There is a blog that I’ve been following for years – yet another picture blog – that gets me so excited for winter and even more so for Christmas.

The tumblr account winter has pictures of everything winter and Christmas related and just makes you fall in love with it all. This blog has thousands and thousands of lovely pictures that represent the magic that is Christmas time.

Like the fall tumblr account, there are a lot of pictures of winter/Christmas treats (and who doesn’t love those),

there are many photos of furry animals playing in the snow,

and, of course, plenty of pictures of Christmas lights.

There are so many beautiful things about this time of year, and I love having a place I can go to look at all of it at once. One thing that would make this even better is some Christmas music playing in the background!
