As my previous posts indicate, I am a soon-to-be social worker. I love what I do, and I know that it is what I am meant to be doing. That being said, it is really difficult work sometimes. While I see some great moments for people, I am more often present for moments of struggle, loss, or death. It is fulfilling work, but it is also draining. By the time I get to Friday afternoon I usually need something lighthearted, touching, or funny to separate myself from work. From now on, I will be posting things on Friday afternoon that make me smile or laugh. I think it will help me transition into the weekend, and I hope that it will help anyone else who just needs to see a little bit of good in the world.
I didn’t think of this idea until late last night, so I’m going to cheat and post today instead. 🙂
Remember this moment from Miss Congeniality . . .
So awkwardly awesome.
Yesterday, I saw this adorable video of a man finding out he’s going to be a grandfather. The look of pure joy on his face is priceless.
I LOVE Parks & Rec. It’s probably my favorite show on TV right now. All of the characters make me laugh for different reasons, and I appreciate that the show can be touching without being corny. This is a little old now, but it still makes me laugh:
Finally, I recently became a big Jimmy Fallon fan, and this video of jokes for a depressed panda cracked me up. I believe one of his writers is actually dancing around in that suit.
Now I’m off to Brewgaloo for a fun afternoon with friends. Have a great weekend!
