Came across this on the Facebook, and we’re sharing it here because we think it is beautiful. If we could all wrap our heads around the fact that we are all in/on the same boat, so to speak, we’d be better off IOHO. Anyway, it has been viewed almost 5 million times, so chances are you’ve seen it. If you haven’t, enjoy this spectacular vidya!
It is Halloween weekend. Though not a real holiday, since no one gets the day off (we should change this, Halloween is infinitely better than Christmas), it is still a celebration. Of course, they’re celebrating it on the Twitter, to fun results. The hashtag today is #FunThingsToDoAloneOnHalloween

Look, our current election cycle here in the US is terrible. So bad that there are articles about its effects on mental health.
There’s also @anamariecox on twitter to help us get through. When things get especially bananas, this lovely person fills her timeline with cuddles, fuzzies, funny and all manner of cute. The latest is #myselfcare which is full up with the aforementioned good stuff
Like, YES! to all of that. Treat yourself, even if you aren’t paying attention to this garbage election. You deserve it.
And thank you to Ana Marie Cox for being awesome.
