Adorable Penguin Couple Take Private Tour Of Chicago Aquarium Amid Closure

Published

on

I hope Disney and Pixar are paying attention because a penguin couple who spend their date night wandering around a closed aquarium sounds like a hit animated movie plot in the making.

The Shedd Aquarium over in Chicago closed earlier this week due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While that news is devastating for all aquatic enthusiasts, there are a few tuxedoed guests that are taking full advantage of the private time. Edward and Annie are a pair of bonded Rockhopper penguins on the cusp on nesting season who are using the empty aquarium as their romantic stomping grounds. The pair of penguins are traveling from exhibit to exhibit checking out some of the marine life they have never even seen before. The adventures of Edward and Annie are being documented by the aquariums Twitter account who also shared that the couple will begin building their nest next week. If I talk any more about nesting I will feel obligated to play Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” so I think I will just end it here.

Enjoy some adorable footage of Edward and Annie’s exciting adventure!

Need Some Good News? Millions Of Baby Turtles Just Made Their Way To The Ocean

Published

Finally, the universe shells out some good news.

Nature is pretty scary right now. There’s a mysterious virus wafting through the air around the world. There are things called murder hornets zipping to places they shouldn’t be zipping to. At any moment I am waiting for the dust bunnies under my bed to grow fangs and turn on me. Alas, among all the bad news there is bound to be some good news and today’s good news comes in the form of baby turtles.

Over on India’s eastern coast lies Odisha’s Gahirmatha Beach, a nesting spot for the endangered Olive Ridley turtles. Each year around this time millions of turtle hatchlings scamper through the sand and make their way to the ocean. The mass nesting typically attracts thousands of tourists who tend to disturb the nesting turtles but because the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the human activity on the beach, more turtles were able to lay their eggs resulting in one of the highest turtles births ever! Perhaps every grey cloud does have a hardened, turtle-shelled lining.

Check out the video of the amazing good news below!

‘Six Feet Apart’ Is A Heartbreakingly Relatable Coronavirus Song

Published

on

You can fit a whole lot of emotions in the social distance between us.

Quarantine has a way of jumbling up emotions leaving you unsure of exactly how you are feeling at times. Well, singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin took that jigsaw puzzle of feelings and laid them out into a beautiful, albeit heartbreaking, new song entitled “Six Feet Apart.” In the song, the Phoenix-based singer recounts the challenges of being apart from family, friends and loved ones and the emotional toll the distance is taking on all of us. He begins the song on the verge of a breakdown singing “they say distance is relative and relative to relatives I have I’d say I’m relatively close to breaking down because right now I feel so alone.” The chorus, however, gives a particularly hard tug on the old heart strings.

“Oh I miss you most at six feet apart when you’re right outside my window but can’t ride inside my car and it hurts to know just how lovely you are and be too far away to hold but close enough to break my heart. I miss your smile. Feels like miles. Six feet apart.”

Benjamin posted the song to YouTube and it has already racked up over 800,000 views with many of the comments praising how relatable the song is. One user commented “This hits different when you’re in quarantine listening to this understanding every word and feeling it.” Another simply said “This is what quarantine feels like.”

Sometimes sinking into your feels for a few isn’t such a bad thing. We have to remember that every colorful emotion is important during this time and deserves acknowledgement. If listening to this song once doesn’t fill your emotional quota for the day take a listen to another one of Benjamin’s songs, “I Built A Friend.” Oooooh that will make you feel some things I promise!

Check out the quarantine-themed song below and remember even thought it’s hard, stay home!
