Like a huge swath of quarantined millennials, I have embraced TikTok with my whole heart. Instead of spending the day doomscrolling, whenever I need a good laugh, I open TikTok and get my entire life. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite videos that I love to watch when I need a pick-me-up.
When One of Your Friends Coughs But It’s Reality TV
Every time I watch this video I laugh so hard I cry. One of my favorite TV genres is reality TV, and Boman’s take on it is so spot-on that I can’t deal. He’s actually created an entire series, including a reality TV show reunion special, so make sure to watch them all!

I Hate This House!
This baby and I are on the same wavelength. I know that staying in my apartment is good for the greater health of my community (and I’m also extremely anxious and paranoid about catching COVID-19), but lord, I HATE THIS HOUSEEEEEE! I WANT TO SEE MY FRIENDS!

Why Does My Neck Hurt Today?
The other day, I told Johnny that my neck felt really stiff and achy and I was convinced I had COVID-19 … but nope. It’s just me in every single one of these terrible poses throughout the day.

Iced Coffee Addicts, Assemble!
My one guilty pleasure I allow myself to indulge in a few times a week is my Starbucks cold brew (no milk/cream, two pumps vanilla). This is an accurate representation of what I look like before and after I get my coffee.

An “Entanglement” With August
So, a bit of celeb gossip. A few weeks ago, it was revealed that Jada Pinkett Smith and R&B star August Alsina were in an (in Jada’s words) “entanglement.” The memes quickly ensued, but this one is by far my favorite.

Trying to Have a Girls’ Night
Trying to have a girls’ night was already a challenge for new moms, but add in quarantine and your babies watching you, and you have a pretty hilarious video.

I had no idea Chinese streetwear was so amazing until I got on TikTok, and now it’s one of the most popular types of videos on the platform. Start with the one below, and then make your way down the list!
What’s the Hand Gesture For a Phone?
I just want you to watch this video and feel old AF with me. I cannot even believe this is a thing.

There has never been a more iconic video on TikTok. Honestly.
