Happy Friday, once again! This has been an emotional week for me. What with the tough matchups Teen Movie March Madness and the actual March Madness in which my alma mater played with my emotions and ultimately ended up getting knocked out of the tournament. But it hasn’t been all bad. Like how today I got a cookie from Michelle Obama. I mean, indirectly, but still. It is shaped like Bo. It is now my most cherished treasure. But enough about me, let’s talk about the internet. And all the things happening there!
