Vanessa’s Team Pick:
Wanna have the best day ever? Duh, of course you do! What about having the best day ever… every day? Well Grace Kim, who you might recognize from this amazing personal essay or from Straddler On The Street, is committed to having the best day ever every day for a whole year, and she’s doing it in public. That’s right! Check out her beautiful website, Best Day Project, and get excited about her brand new webseries where you can watch it all happen in real time! The webseries launched today, and in it Grace is documenting her year of having the best day every day by taking on things she’s always wanted to do but never has before. In her words, “I’ve written out all the things I’ve ever wanted to do. Every week, I’ll pick one out of my jar at random, force myself to do it, and have the best day of my life while simultaneously making an ass out of myself for your viewing pleasure.”
So what is task #1 in this glorious new webseries you can consume with your eyes every week? Hit on a girl! But Grace isn’t the kind of human to do things half-heartedly…so instead of hitting on one girl, she decided to propose to 100 girls. With a ring pop. It’s kind of incredible. Here, let’s enjoy the video together (watch out for some familiar Auto-faces!).
Are you sold on this project? I know I am. You can view a new video every week, and you can check in on Grace’s journey as a whole at the Best Day Project website. There’s even a component where Grace wants to help you! Ten percent of her ad revenue and all the donations she receives go directly into a Best Day Fund which is used to give away the things people have always wanted to do through Grace’s Best Day Project Sweepstakes. “The more we grow, the more often we can give Best Days away,” Grace told me. “I want to make as many dreams come true as possible.”
