Is it me or are weekends getting shorter and shorter? My oldest went back to school this week and when Friday rolled around I (Keira) couldn't believe it, and that feels like it was yesterday. The older I get, the faster time flies. Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself to breathe and take a look around before life escapes me.
I'm pretty sure the week flew for Nikki, too. She went to the My Drunk Kitchen book event and said that Hannah Hart was amazing and hilarious and she almost cried. She also attended the Doctor Who World Tour and had a blast, claiming the episode was amazeballs and that she's still in love with Chris Hardwick.
I feel like I'm always telling you all about some fan-ish thing she's been doing, but it's awesome, right? We can all live vicariously through our resident New York native.
Here's what we've had going on blog-wise...

Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.
One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.
