As a manager of digital content for a news station and a blogger, my life can get hectic very easy. Luckily, I have recently hired my sister for help, but finding time to do the things I love can be tough. However, with HBO, I can still find time for my favorite shows for inspiration or just to let my mind rest.
A typical day for me doesn’t have a lot of wiggle room, unless my motivation is lacking (which does happen).
The most important day of the week for me is Monday because it sets the mood for my entire week. I start my day by waking up and meditating for about 5 minutes to improve my energy.
As I am getting ready, I watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, so I can get in the news mindset for work. It is so easy to watch HBO Now on my iPhone with my HBO Popsocket as I am brushing my teeth and putting on my makeup.
I just recently caught up on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and it was super easy because HBO has their entire collection on HBO Now! They also get new movies every month!

I always try to wake up early so I can skim through some of my favorite blogs in the morning. And of course, my favorite thing in the morning is a big cup of coffee.
I have way too many mugs – my sisters always judge me when I bring another one home, but I just cant help it. It is crazy how the simplest part of your day, like a cool mug, can put you in a better mood.
HBO is airing for the first time A NIGHT OF TOO MANY STARS: AMERICA UNITES FOR AUTISM PROGRAMS. With an estimated 1 in 68 children currently affected by autism, NIGHT OF TOO MANY STARS was created by comedy writer and performer Robert Smigel to support autism schools, programs and services and has raised more than $24 million to date. The benefit was originally presented on Comedy Central and has been hosted by Jon Stewart since 2005.
You can watch the event live on HBO on November 18 at 8 p.m. ET. The event will also be streamed live on HBO Now and HBO Go.
The event will include stand-up performances, sketches and short films. NIGHT OF TOO MANY STARS: AMERICA UNITES FOR AUTISM PROGRAMS will feature appearances by Stephen Colbert, Abbi Jacobson, Jordan Klepper, Hasan Minhaj, John Mulaney, Olivia Munn, John Oliver and Adam Sandler.
I am also excited to announce that I am working with HBO to giveaway two tickets to the event.
Join the cause and you could be in the room with too many stars, live from The Theater at Madison Square Garden, by sharing a photo of the “too many” in your life. Too many shoes, too many laughs, too many shows to catch up on? Let HBO know on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #NightOfTooManyStars and #Contest.
No purchase necessary. Ends 11/8. Open to residents of the 48 contiguous US and D.C., 18+. Rules NOTMSContestRules.dja.com
This is me and my too many mugs:
I was so excited to be given this opportunity to work with HBO and be an ambassador! As a huge fan of their network, I was happy to promote a good cause and a great content creator.
After my morning routine, I head into work and put out any fire the world of digital media has brought to me. My job is constantly changing – sometimes I am in the newsroom, sometimes I am in the field and sometimes I am traveling.
When I am traveling and stuck in a hotel room, I always go to bed with HBO Now and Game of Thrones or Veep.
And then, when I am lucky to be at home, I get to watch Game of Thrones with my favorite pups, Fiona and Schmidt.
What is your favorite HBO show?
