Fridays are even better when they’re the kickoff to a well-deserved three-day weekend after a grueling week of parent-teacher conferences.

Elizabeth Warren talks about how she got into politics, recalling a time when she doubted herself and the advice she received from a female senator:

She told me that women always think of reasons they aren’t good enough. “Men never ask if they’re good enough to hold public office. They just ask if they can raise enough money to win. Of course you can do this.”

Good thing it's payday, because you're going to want to buy ALL THE THINGS:
