Pop quiz: What’s your favorite day of the week? It probably isn’t today — but you know what? There are actually plenty of reasons to feel good on a Wednesday. Reddit knows it, so let’s take a leaf out of their collective book, shall we? In a post this morning in (where else?) the AskReddit sub, Redditor PhoneJazz asked everyone why they’re feeling good this Wednesday. S/he even provided some musical accompaniment (which, of course, prompted many South Park jokes) to enhance the thread experience. So tell us, world: Why are you feeling good today?
I’ll be honest: I kind of hate the whole “happy hump day!” thing. I think it’s kind of effed up that we live in a society where so many people hate their jobs — which we probably spend most of our waking hours doing — so much that the only way to get through the week is by thinking of Wednesday as “almost-the-weekend.” So here — let’s celebrate. Whether it’s the little things or the not-so-little things, and whether it’s a Wednesday or any other day of the week, there’s always something to feel good about. Check out some of Reddit’s answers below. What’s yours?
1. You’re Retiring in Two Days
Most people probably aren’t going to be in this boat, but if you are, congratulations! That’s awesome!
2. You Stepped Out of Your Comfort Zone
Good for you! That’s definitely something to be proud of.
3. You’re Moving to Your Own Place
All that other stuff sounds pretty terrific, too, but there’s nothing quite like finally getting a place of your own.
4. You’re Seeing Your Best Friend Soon
That was me during one week in July this year. I didn’t travel quite that far, but it had been about five years since I had seen one of my best friends, so it was a) long over-due, and b) a magnificent visit. Enjoy it, HoboChique!
Also, it’s vacation. Hoorah!
6. It’s Your Birthday
Happy birthday, iBleedorange!
7. You’re Getting Your Braces Off
When you have braces, it seems like they're going to be there forever. Getting them off, therefore, is definitely cause for celebration.
8. One of Your BFFs Shared Some Huge News with You
To which I can say only this:
9. You’re Spending Time with Your Favorite People Later On
