While having a job is fulfilling and necessary for most, it can be a total slog at times. Bosses are bossy, coworkers are nosy, and technology only cooperates when it wants to. When work just won’t throw you a bone, know that you’re not alone. Not to quote High School Musical, but “we’re all in this together.”
Here are 13 memes to make your workday a little easier.
1. “Oh, I’m sorry, I must’ve forgotten that horror movie discourse isn’t my job, rather just an interesting and mildly-fulfilling hobby.”
MY BOSS: why haven’t you completed any tasks for a week and a half
ME: did you hear the news? horror movies are about grief and trauma now
You probably already know this, but there’s more to life than laboring inside a cubicle 40 hours a week. In fact, it’s likely that you already catch yourself daydreaming about packing your bags and exploring the world.
But who’s to say that you can’t? Traveling to the other side of the globe is not an impossibility. You can do it and live your best life, all while making money at the same time. And how, you ask? The answer can be summarized in just four letters: TEFL.
Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is a career track that hundreds and thousands of people have found success in, and it’s not hard to see why they did it. According to the British Council, 1.75 billion people worldwide are already speaking English, and that number is predicted to rise even further. The organization posits that by 2020, at least two billion people will be using it — or learning to use it. Read more…

Mayor Pete husband’s Chasten Buttigieg is a rare thing: a Twitter celebrity who deserves his fame.

As a New Yorker, I’m not ashamed to admit that my city does so much incorrectly: our rent is too damn high, our commutes too damn long, and rats, not the mayor, rule the city.
If there’s one thing this 8-million-plus-person hellhole mostly gets right…

Trump’s back on the cover of Time, but now instead of drowning in the Oval Office he’s shown walking outside, singing in the rain.
Since 2017, Time Magazinehas visually depicted the president’s controversial, ever-changing narrative through dramatic cover art illustrated by Tim O’Brien. The imagery has grown increasingly troublesome for Trump over the years — with the third installment, titled “In Deep,” essentially showing him drowning in his office — but the latest cover took quite a turn.

The only good news is candy news, so it’s wonderful that two new Reese’s cups will hit shelves soon.
Chocolate Lovers and Peanut Butter Lovers cups, which will be available beginning mid-April of this year, cater to those who crave slightly more chocolate or slightly more peanut butter from their Reese’s experience. They’re not shaped differently than a standard cup — we have seasonal Reese’s for that — but they are fun little variations on an already good candy.
Let’s break them down:
I have never sought out a Reese’s cup for the chocolate. It’s the peanut butter that sets the candy apart. So I was not particularly excited for the ” thicker chocolate shell,” which I felt would further ruin the chocolate-peanut butter ratio, nor the “richer, darker milk chocolate.” Read more…
