A new trend on TikTok is alive and well! Often exaggerating, people on TikTok have been sharing rules that they will have at their wedding. This could consist of “no big announcements” or “no kids,” but no matter what the rule, it is very entertaining to see what other people will not allow at their wedding. 


Mid-Century Mini



In 2017 couple Annie Kampfe and Cliff Donnelly decided to take up a hobby. Instead of trying golf, or learning to cook, they bought a kit and began building a dollhouse. The Mini Modern House aka the MMH, as they now call it, is fully customized with ten rooms and full electric lighting. You can read more about it here or on their Instagram @minimodernhouse.


“Adorable” Mail Trucks



The USPS is finally replacing their 30-year-old mail trucks. The USPS says this vehicle is “a part of a 10-year plan to improve customer service, achieve financial stability and better support the postal workforce.” All these amazing things said, Twitter describes these trucks as “cartoon-like” and “adorable.” Nonetheless, this change in the USPS is attracting a lot of positive attention.


Mega Gummy Bear



Created by artist Kevin Champney, this piece named “Gummy Bear Obsession” is built from 15,000 hand-cast gummy bears. It is one of Champney’s many works — some of his others include “An Apple a Day” which is made of 10,000  hand-casted candies, and “Remains Revisited” a skull made from, you guessed it — hand-casted skulls. You can see all of these pieces and more here at Champney’s website.


‘Renegades: Born in the USA’ — a new podcast coming to Spotify



Twitter rejoiced when they heard the news that former US president Barack Obama and famous musician Bruce Springsteen are teaming up for a podcast. This podcast will discuss topics such as the future of America, race, and fatherhood.
