Hulu Is Releasing A Series Based On John Green's 'Looking For Alaska' And I Have HIGH Expectations

The other day, I was minding my business watching a cliche Hulu show when an advertisement popped up, as usual. Now, this wasn't any old Hulu ad, it was an ad for the new series "Looking For Alaska."

When I tell you I screamed, I screamed. To put this into simple terms, I did not know what to do with myself. I was in the middle of getting ready for school with half my contour on when I had to pause my whole life to google if this series was really happening.

I was in 9th grade when I read this book. I was obviously a little late because the book was released in 2005 and it was probably 2014 when I read it.

Nonetheless, I read it and enjoyed the heck out of it. I normally get pretty sad and empty after I finish a book, but this was just different. I felt lost for a few days after finishing it because the book was just that good.

Also, I was in 9th grade and I was angsty to begin with so you can't expect much. I specifically recall researching whether or not any movie would be made about it and to no avail nothing was being made. I was heartbroken, of course. I eventually got over it because it's just a book.

I cannot imagine how the people who read this book when it first came out feel, considering how I feel just 5 years after reading it. Many of them may be well in their 30s and late 20s.

They would have been waiting much longer than I have. Why did it exactly take someone so long to turn this book into a movie/series? I have no idea, considering many of John Green's books have been made into movies way sooner.

Was the book just so good that nobody had the guts to turn it into something more and feared failure?

From the looks of the trailer, I have high hopes. Now, I'm not a very critical person so I am more than positive that I'll be pleased. However, not everybody is like that. This is a beloved book and Hulu is going to have a lot of weight on their shoulders.

I think they can carry it. The book offers an amazing plot that is not going to be hard to follow. With it being a series, Hulu has more opportunity to not leave any details out.

If they were to choose just to do a movie, things would most definitely be left out, which every book reader dreads when it comes to movie versions. I am very happy that they wisely chose to do a series.

Hulu, I am thankful that you stepped up to the plate. I will be cheering you on through my computer screen.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.
