The World Is Pretty Messed Up Right Now, But Here's The Good News

With all the bad stuff going on, its easy to forget not everything is screwed. Here's some Good News!


A once-in-a-thousand-year hurricane is swept through Texas and another is crashing into the east cost. We’re still reeling a bit in shock over the events that occurred in Charlottesville, North Korea is launching ballistic missiles over Japan for the heck of it and our all knowing Commander-in-Chief seems to be about as out of sync with his priorities as ever it - feels like the world's pretty messed right about now.

With all the crap, depressing news that is really just the world saying, “Hey losers just in case you forgot - I’m an asshole” I thought we could all use a bit of a reminder that there is still some positivity going for us in these times where the only certain thing is that the times are uncertain.

So, here's some good news.

Small animals are still adorable.




Aaand on that note – small adorable animals are doin’ pretty OK even after Harvey.

And still on the theme of people taking Harvey like champs:

These Pizza Hut employees were really "pie-ing it forward" when they paddled out into knee high waters with 120 pizzas and handed them out in a community stranded by flooding and running low on food. You can click on the article from the Good News Network here.

And, lastly, what could be more heart warming than surprise videos?

Simple – surprise videos starring John Cena.

Long time fans that were deeply touched by his work as a professional wrestler, as well as an entertainer and all around cool dude, surprised him after he read letters they had sent to him. The video in itself is an advertisement for Cricket Wireless but it really only has their logo on it at the end so it's really not that bad. Check out the video here.

And THAT was some good news for the week. Hope you enjoyed.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
