As a digital native I understand all too well that the internet is the most beautiful place in the world, and of course, also the scariest.
So to ease your internet woes, here are the funny things I’ve found online that have made my day a little brighter, and I hope it helps you to navigate your complicated lives with a little more pep in your step.
1. My sister is doing the thing again
Throughout my young life, some of my most powerful crushes to date have been dogs. Dogs are the most wonderful things on the planet and I feel like this young woman is prone to that same very sickness/gift.
2. What I wish my therapist would say
Anything Lisa Gilroy does is just pure gold but this one really sent me running for my mental healthcare plan.
3. Gay shark

It’s just so cute. He is so kind. What a little angel. He is so hopeless, and I have never felt so un-maternal.
This is one of the first internet videos I saw that really broke my neck with whiplash (from laughter, obviously). I think I was about 14?
6. Quadruple threat
Reductress is such a wonderful receptacle of lols. Here is one that recently made my partner howl.

9. Lookit ze beans
Apparently children call cat’s toes “beans” and that is probably the most adorable thing ever.
