5 People I Want To Be Like When I Grow Up

1. The runaway bride who reported an earthquake IN HER WEDDING DRESS.

I have no idea what she's saying, but anyone who leaves her own wedding to cover breaking news gets the prestigious title of Bad Ass.

2. This guy who river-danced on a moving bus.

River dancing is pretty impressive by itself; add a moving vehicle into the mix and you've got something out of a Hollywood musical. Also, I imagine this is what Speed would have looked like if it took place in Dublin. One can only dream.

3. Everyone in this video.

I can hardly imagine what it's like to lose both legs. Celeste Corcoran lost both of hers in the marathon bombings, and naturally, she was devastated. Who better to comfort her than someone who lost both legs himself? The man in the video, who is a marine, said, "There are so many opportunities that are going to come your way." That might be the best thing anyone could have said to her at that moment. Another man stepped in and, after telling her she was pretty (what a prince), he gestured to her legs with a hand saying, "This is just a change of scenery. The last few seconds are the best when Corcoran starts to believe that she might actually run the marathon in the future--something she likely would not have done before the accident. When you're a victim you don't want to be told you'll just be okay, you want to be encouraged to believe you'll be even better than before.

4. This sea lion. 

Huffington Post

This is more of what I hope to see in my old age--80 years old with the voraciously indiscriminate appetite of a sea lion. "Oh, you're working on something fancy? That's nice, I'm working on eating new things. NOM."

5. The Journalists at the Chicago Tribune.

When the Chicago Tribune bought stacks of pizza for the Boston Globe, they did irrevocable work in improving the bad rap journalists often get ("journalism was recently ranked #6 on the list of professions with the most psychopaths. Ouch). They included this message:

Buzzfeed

Before that, the Tribune's sports section printed a large graphic in tribute to Boston as a gesture of solidarity in a time of tragedy:

Buzzfeed

With simple, yet powerful language, the Tribune summed up the importance of being there for on another in a time of calamity, even if it is your rivals who are in need. The editors that decided to send the Boston Globe lunch, and the writers and graphic artists who put this image on the sports section took the time to see the Globe journalists as colleagues and not rivals. Long after people recover from the bombings, this will remind people that although we've got competition in many corners of life, we're in it together.
