The CC Weekly Weigh In: We’re In Love

You don’t have to have a Valentine to celebrate on February 14th. The holiday is all about love, be that the love for a family member, a friend, or chocolate lava cake. It is a day to stop, think, and really honor the things and people in our life that we love. Yes, it is mostly celebrated by disgustingly cute and happy and perfect couples, but the rest of us can get a little love too.

This week, in honor of the day of lovin’, we asked our writers what they are just loooovin’ right now.  Me? I’m head over heels for Chelsea Handler, Thai carry-out and 2 Buck Chuck.


Gemma – NYU: I am love love loving on all the awesome tights from American Apparel!! I am SO sick of bundling up all the time, and with them I get to wear my dresses in the cold, and I can’t get enough!  Also, still lovin on Obama. And not necessarily in that order.

Coco: I love the warm weather streak in the middle of winter.

K – GWU: I hate global warming, but I love wearing flip flops in the North East in February…and having a reason to get a pedicure prematurely.

Lauren – University of Michigan: Fiber 1 Toaster Pastries. They are like healthy Pop-Tarts!

Ashley Elizabeth – CU Boulder: Kissing in the rain.

Brithny – Duke: I LOVE the new John Grisham courtroom thriller, The Associate. It’s definitely a must-read!

Donyae – University of Maryland: I love iTunes right now. I know it’s part of an evil empire but it’s just so easy! And efficient. Which is why I spend too much money on it.

Meregan – Brown University: I’m loving all the chick flicks coming out this month–I know they’re probably cliché but I can’t help myself, I have to go see them!

Erica – Kent State: I love being sober! Sounds crazy, I know, but it’s been a week and I already feel slightly smarter, more productive…and skinnier!

Liza M – Minnesota: Right now I’m loving my plans for V-Day weekend: Canada trip with boyfriend, his best friend and his girl! Perfection.

Carly – Grinnell: I LOVE the idea of going to pastry school. It’s probably a lot cooler in my mind than it is in real life, but whatever, I totally want to do it.

CJ – UConn: Lin-Manuel Miranda. If you haven’t heard of him, Google him.

Alex – Lakehead University: I love LIFE. But seriously, everything is perfect; I’m just so thankful!

Elise – Stanford: Shea butter lotion and Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Lipgloss!

Sarabeth – University of Texas: Music and, of course, my boyfriend.

Leah – Ryerson: I love my best friend who spontaneously bought a plane ticket to come spend reading week with me!!

Amanda – Reed College: I’m loving that video from SNL called “I’m On a Boat.” I’m also obsessed with my Laura Mercier gel liner – it’s amazing, I still can’t get over it.

Maddie – Tufts : Since I don’t have a real-life Valentine and I’m abroad in Madrid for the semester, I’ve been devoting all of my love to Spanish cheese and wine. Hopefully it doesn’t all go to my waistline, or else I’ll really never have a real-life Valentine…

S.E. – Fordham: Right now, I’m loving me some Red Bull. It’s like crack in a can.

John – UConn: Right now, I love my body. Despite the fact that I didn’t go to the gym today and I ate a loaded baked potato and I had fried eggs for breakfast and I just ordered some pizza right before bed because it was only eight dollars for a large, yes, I love my body. I feed the things I love.
