Have you ever taken the time to see what weird holidays you can celebrate in January?
In the mood to toss out that disgusting fruitcake your grandmother made for you over Christmas? There’s a day for that. Like dressing up your pets in the cutest (and weirdest) outfits? You can do so on 14 January. Want to answer all the questions your cat mews at you? Yep, that day occurs toward the end of the month. See, we told you there were some pretty weird (and secretly kind of of awesome) holidays that happen in January. You can bet we’ll be celebrating all of these – and more – to make life at the office a little more interesting.
You know what else makes life a little more interesting? Twitter. Not only does it allow us to follow what’s happening in the world with ease, but it also allows us to keep up-to-date with our favourite celebrities and creators. Sure, some might say it’s a little invasive, but we like to think of it as getting to know those we look up to a little better. Through the funny, boring, entertaining and sometimes quite personal tweets they share, we get a sneak peek into their world, and with Tweets of the Week we share the best of the best. With that, let’s jump into it!
Who else is genuinely in awe, bows down to, feels not worthy in the presence of those that can curl their hair with straighteners 😂
— Helen Anderson (@HelenAnderz) January 12, 2020
We honestly have no idea how they do it, Helen Anderson! Whenever we try to curl our own hair with our straightener, we either burn pieces of it right off or look like we’ve decided to walk around all day with bedhead, both of which are definitely not good looks.
We LOVE sleep!
I am now in the weighted blanket cult.

Welcome to the good side, Rosianna Halse Rojas! We always thought people were over-exaggerating when they told us how good weighted blankets are, but then we bought one for ourselves. They are heaven; we’ve never slept better!
It’s breakfast dinner tea not breakfast lunch dinner and am willin to fight to the fuckin death about that lets av ye

Whoa, whoa, whoa, Jesse McNamara! We have a MAJOR problem here. Anyone who thinks it goes “breakfast, dinner, tea” is 100% wrong. It’s a proven fact it goes “breakfast, lunch, dinner”. Sorry, not sorry.
Essay writing is the worst
i think i’d find it so much easier writing 7,000 other things my lecturer could be doing instead of reading my essay than actually writing my essay
— byron (@tbhbyron) January 6, 2020
This was our thought every time we had to write an essay in university, Byron Denton. Graduation couldn’t have come any sooner. (Thank goodness, it’s over!)
When I worked an office job I’d easily do about 15,000 steps a day without even trying. Now I’m self employed I only do about 113 steps a day and that’s mostly just me going back and forth to the kitchen to get more hobnobs

Calum Swiggan is a prime example of what happens when you become self-employed. Gone are the days of accidental exercise caused by having to do a million and one tasks whilst at work. Now, if you want to be active, you actually have to make an effort. It’s so tedious.
brain: somethin bad’s gonna happen!!

It’s as if we tweeted this out ourselves, Luke Cutforth! Waaaaaay too real.
Pets are the best
me to my cat: i want to be with u always. i love u so much. do u love me back? if u didn’t i would die. i would give my life for u. god i hope u love me
me in every intimate relationship i have ever had: get the Fuck away from me
— savannah brown (@savannahbrown) January 11, 2020
You’re not the only one to prefer animals to humans, Savannah Brown. Why be in love with a person when you can have a cat or a dog and never have them hurt you? (Y’know, besides accidentally scratching you with their sharp claws and biting you when they’re angry…)
Our dream shoes
Just requested a pair of heelys for my 28th birthday.
Repeat after me: QUARTER. LIFE. CRISIS.
— ˗ˏˋ niki albon ˊˎ˗ (@NikiAlbon) January 12, 2020
Why are you calling this a quarter life crisis, Niki Albon?! Heeleys are the best shoes to have ever existed and we still wish someone would buy us a pair. We hope to see you rolling down the streets soon!
i feel like ur 30s are what you expect your 20s to be like when you’re 15
— corry 🛸 (@notcorry) January 12, 2020
This is the realest thing we think we’ve ever read on Twitter, Corry. Scratch that, it’s the realest thing we’ve ever read, period.
2020 resolution is to stop doing things in halves, if you can't / don't want to put 100% into something then it's not worth doing at all

This is something we too are going to try, Connie Glynn. Why do something if we’re not willing to give it our all?
So there you have it…
