Besides the aforementioned, my essentials as of late:
1). Killer playlists to get me through hours upon hours of photo editing. On repeat:
On Top of the World // Imagine Dragons
Wagon Wheel // Darius Rucker
White Dress // Ben Rector
Dumb Love // Sean Kingston
2). Hilariously ridiculous videos like this velociraptor chase prank.
3). Distractions like this collection of notes written by kids to their loved ones.
4). And this collection of photographs depicting ballet dancers in random scenarios.
5). The sweetest song, penned by a 96-year-old man a month after his wife of 73 years passed away.
Sometimes I feel like quitting the internet, but more often than not, it's filled with good stuff worth passing along.
