Congrats ladies and gents, you’ve survived yet another long tiresome workweek and the weekend is just within your grasp. Before you skip off to your well-deserved freedom, let’s take a look at some of the good news from this week (because it’s not always about politics). These are just a few of the many reasons to start your weekend off with a “hell yeah!”
1. This adorable toddler waiting for the beat to drop
Maddie might be the most adorable dancing toddler we have ever seen. Not only does she have some seriously killer dance moves, but she’s also very precise when it comes to timing. She listens carefully to what we can only assume is one of her favorite songs, “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, and has her tiny fingers at the ready waiting for the beat to drop. As soon as it does, little Maddie starts grooving uncontrollably—much like we do when we hear our favorite tune.
2. This teacher’s hilarious extra credit questions
“One anonymous statistics professor became an internet celebrity last year when photos began to circulate of his/her unorthodox and entertaining extra credit questions on tests. With questions that ran the gamut from Full House to The Beatles, the internet was utterly charmed by this teacher’s admirable efforts to make things fun and challenging for their students. Now, the questions are going viral once more on Imgur, and it’s time for all of us to see how we stack up to these tricky extra credit questions (which involve zero statistics knowledge whatsoever, so don’t worry).”
3. This mom who called out her daughter’s principal
Though it’s been several years since I’ve walked the halls of grade school, hearing about the dress codes in place these days is ludicrous. Sure, we had certain guidelines our attire was expected to meet, but things have gotten way out of hand. In fact, one mother has had just about enough of these unrealistic standards on school wear. After her daughter was ridiculed for her “inappropriate” shorts and threatened with detention, she called out the principal—requesting that she be the one to take her daughter shopping.
4. The Rock’s story about losing his virginity
“Long before he was selected as People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2016, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was struggling to to cultivate the smooth and charming image we all know and envy today. Turns out, The Rock went through an awkward phase just like the rest of us — particularly when it came to romancing the ladies. During a recent interview with Elle, Johnson discussed losing his virginity, and how the whole situation devolved into a pretty embarrassing liaison.”
5. This woman inspirational message about body image
“Food artist Lucy Litman recently went through her closet and discovered an old dress that was now too small for her body. But, instead of freaking out and ruing her weight gain, Litman decided to use the opportunity as an example of the importance of self-love. She posted an Instagram photo of herself in the half-zipped sundress, along with an important caption about her body image and relationship with food.”
