Happy Friday! I didn’t have a topic in mind for this week’s Friday Five post, so I decided to write about some recent events that have me scratching my head, or basically “things that make you go hmmm”. Enjoy!
A Judgement Free Zone?
Eric Stagno really took that phrase to heart after he entered Planet Fitness, took off all his clothes, and then proceeded to workout. Don’t worry, he was arrested, but mentioned that he thought working out naked was okay since the gym was a “judgement free zone”. I’m really starting to worry about the lack of common sense in some people…
Cops called for breastfeeding?
It seems like some people think that 911 is their personal calling service nowadays. I still can’t believe that someone called the cops on moms that were breastfeeding their children at a pool. I know that everyone has their opinions on breastfeeding in public, but it’s certainly not illegal and calling the cops is flat out absurd. I’m sure they would much rather use their time, you know, responding to ACTUAL crimes.
Quitting Social Media?
Earlier this week, Pete Davidson said that he was quitting social media because the “internet is an evil place”, and I totally don’t agree with that. There are both positives and negatives to the internet/social media. I don’t know much about Pete (he’s a cast member on SNL), but I’m always amazed when celebrities complain about social media. There will always be internet trolls, but that’s why I love the block button, lol. I also try to cultivate my Instagram so that it’s a very positive environment. When you put out positivity, you get positive energy back.
No Love for Shalene or Desi?
Don’t get me wrong, I love the ESPYs. It’s nice to see the best in sports celebrated on one stage. I also love that the survivors of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. But I’m very confused as to why neither Shalene Flanagan or Desi Linden received anything for winning the NYC Marathon and Boston Marathon. These were both huge accomplishments, especially for American women in running, and it would have been nice for them to be acknowledged.
Pick the Winning Lottery Ticket?
Earlier this week, there was a winner for the Mega Millions jackpot of $522 million dollars! Sure, you only get about half of that amount after taxes but that’s still a buttload of cash! I’ve often wondered – What would I do with all of that money?! It would nice to find out!
