I know I mention my love for theSkimm continually (for example here & here), so I will spare you this time… BUT, if you did by chance read theSkimm this morning you would have learned that today we will have a Leap Second!
I’ve never hear of a “Leap Second” before, but I did a bit of research and it’s actually pretty interesting! Leap seconds were created in 1972 as a way to compensate for Earth’s rotation slowing down.
No, don’t worry, the Earth won’t stop spinning any time soon :) but since 1972 there have been 25 Leap Seconds! So if you ask me, today is a pretty special day, right? :)
What will you do with your extra second today?
Here are just a few ideas that come to mind:
- Take a bubble bath
- Read In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume (I’m currently hooked!)
- Call my mama
- Go for a run outside
- Go to happy hour with my girlfriends
- Cuddle with the boyfriend
- Relax with a glass of wine on my balcony
Yes yes, I know I can’t accomplish any of these things in just one second, but you get the idea :) Make the most out of every second you have in life by doing something you love.
And tonight when 23h:59m:60s rolls around, enjoy your extra time on this beautiful earth :)
