Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, friends! It’s supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow and Sunday, and I can’t wait. The weather has been pretty terrible this week–dreary, rainy, and incredibly windy–so the sunshine that’s bound to happen this weekend will be a wonderful break. Do you have anything fun planned? Comment below! In the meantime, here are a few awesome finds from the week. Enjoy!
Harry. Freaking. Styles!
Stop what you’re doing (“baby, it’ll be alright”)! The One Direction crooner released his first solo song this AM, and I’ve had it on repeat since it premiered. What’s not to like? His bold, raspy, soulful voice? Swoon. David Bowie and Freddie Mercury similarities? I’ll take it! Epic guitar solo? Yes, please! When I listen to “Sign of the Times,” I feel transported. It makes me want to take out a lighter (or my cell phone light) and sway from side to side. If you haven’t heard it, yet, take a listen here. I promise it’s a hit!
New Jersey high school senior, Ifeoma White-Thorpe, is just like so many other seniors who are finally hearing back from the colleges they applied to just a few months ago. What makes Ifeoma standout, however, is that she received acceptance letters from ALL EIGHT Ivy League schools: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, Columbia, and UPenn. This is an undertaking so many teens dream of, and I can only imagine how thrilled and maybe even overwhelmed she and her family are. Wherever she goes and whatever school she selects, I’m sure that institution would be lucky to have her!
