Music superstar Adele turned 31 on Monday and her birthday gift to herself should serve as an inspiration to us all.


In post on Instagram, the singer relished making into her 4th decade and she could not be more optimistic about the future.

"This is 31...thank f***ing god," the caption read. "30 tried me so hard but I'm owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all."

Life isn't easy for anyone, even the rich and famous.

"No matter how long we're here for life is constant and complicated at times," she wrote. "I've changed drastically in the last couple years and I'm still changing and that's okay."

Being in your 30's is awesome, and Adele plans on reconnecting with what's most important - herself.

"31 is going to be a big ol' year and I'm going to spend it all on myself," she said. "For the first time in a decade I'm ready to feel the world around me and look up for once."

Self-care is truly undervalued in our non-stop, hyper-stressful culture. But in the end, Adele stressed that we are responsible for our own happiness and fulfillment.

"Be kind to yourself people we're only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity," she advised. "Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I've only just realized that that is more than enough.

"I'll learn to love you lot eventually 😂," she joked. "Bunch of f*cking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you.
Chin up eh ❤️."

This is the wholesome, positive content we need right now.

The birthday wishes flooded Twitter.





Happy birthday Adele.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
