There are certain vacation destinations that have become a bit overdone; whether due to association (Spring Break hotspots) or just general popularity (tourism), it can be hard to plan a truly unique trip. But nothing screams originality more than a brand new island! If you’re a trendsetter who wants to be one of the first people to explore a new land mass, head to the coast of Tonga. After it was created by a volcanic explosion in December, scientists are saying this unnamed island shouldn’t be around in a few months. If you ever needed an excuse to take a vacation and tons of pictures, this is it. – Lauren

At this point in the summer, I can’t even think without air conditioning. I use it all the time and while I should feel shame about this, I don’t because I need it that bad. I’m intrigued by this DIY air conditioner tutorial on Buzzfeed. I could use a more fiscally viable option to the window unit. Has anyone made one of these? I may attempt to make my own—if it’s not too hot this weekend. – Vee

The Sharing Economy Goes Outdoors

If AirBnB went outdoors, you’ve got HipCamp. HipCamp connects owners of private outdoor properties with ecologically-friendly campers for a sharing model in which everyone benefits. Like AirBnB, HipCamp helps private land-owners create the perfect space for camping through photography, insurance, bathrooms, maps and more. Campers on a budget are even able to camp for free or at a reduced rate in exchange for maintaining and volunteering on some properties. Since over 60% of the USA is privately-owned, HipCamp really opens up your possibilities! – Mateo

Inspirational Horse Video

I’ve never ridden a horse. Nor have I ever really performed for a crowd (besides a middle school stint in my school’s production of Annie). I give this horse mad props. A 10 out of 10. This may sound absolutely ridiculous, but I genuinely felt proud of him when I watched this video. I don’t know this horse, I don’t know his story—but the overwhelming feeling of wanting to slow clap for the little bugger overtook my body (more so than my Friday vibes are currently doing). So if you’re feeling down in the dumps, watch this video and it’ll instantly perk you up. #nailedit – Chrissy

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Selected Songs

I remember the first time I saw Wet Hot American Summer in high school. Comedy Central would play it all the time and I wanted to see what other stuff the funny guy from I Love the 80’s was doing. Little did I know that this single movie would shape my comedic taste. I was completely hooked and had to absorb everything this ragtag team had worked on. From The State to Stella I couldn’t get enough. So I was just as excited as the rest of the internet when the new Wet Hot Netflix series was released. Now, composer Craig Wedren has put up a long list of songs he composed for the film and series. They’re definitely bringing my Friday positivity higher and higher! – Chris
