Hey Internet, Keep Being Awesome

So hello everyone! Now that I'm getting back into a routine with the kids back in school, I wanted to bring back Hey Internet, Keep Being Awesome but also change it up a little. Instead of just sharing a lot of headlines, I'll likely include a smaller collection of headlines + a brief commentary on why a particular article, video, or series of images caught my eye. I'll also sometimes direct embed videos, because hey, that's way easier for your viewing pleasure, right? I hope this is helpful for your perusing! Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
