As you continue to procrastinate studying for midterms, you scroll through your News Feed and see a news article shared by your friends. It’s not about the upcoming election or even world news in general, but a topic that just isn’t worth taking time out of your 15-minute social media break. In an effort to keep you up to date with trending news while giving you enough Instagram time, here is a quick roundup of the top stories of the week so far.
1. Sorry Prince Harry, your journey to the throne just got longer. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge, born Saturday, May 2, 2015. She is the fourth in line to the throne after her grandfather, father and brother – which you can see in this nifty little map.
2. Holy guacamole! You just saved some money in your extremely tight college student budget. Chipotle just released its famous “guac is extra” recipe.
3. If you had any presence on social media Monday, you would know that Vogue’s annual Costume Institute Gala took place. This $25,000-per-ticket fundraiser takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and all in attendance wore their Monday best, from Sarah Jessica Parker’s surprisingly elegant H&M gown to Beyonce’s near-nude sparkling dress.
4. Miley Cyrus dyed her armpit hair pink. You know you want to click this.
5. Here’s a feel-good story for you. During the Boston Marathon, the women at Wellesley College traditionally offer kisses to the runners. One runner, Barbara Tatge, was dared by her daughter to kiss a handsome man during her run as she ran through the town of Wellesley. Needless to say, the photo went viral and the search for the anonymous man began. Of all people, the man’s wife responded, ending the search. The couple wished to remain anonymous, however, and there were no bumps in the marriage because the wife knew it was just for good fun.
So now, you will be able to contribute a little to the small talk around school while still getting that A on your dreaded midterm. You’re welcome.
