Concentration is one thing, but there is a thing as too much focus on the goal at hand. Classic case of overthinking, which explains the ghastly 58.5 percent at the charity stripe.

Quarantine has allowed us to pursue side hustles we didn’t know we had...me included. 🤓— Zharita Sese (@zharitamay) January 24, 2021
That being said, check out these sneaker/ball inspired greeting cards.
Perfect for those couples who find themselves in situationships and need some clarity for an upcoming holiday...🙄 pic.twitter.com/pGaeMYB3zD
In the 28 years I've been on this planet, the only time I've celebrated Valentine's Day was in my elementary school classroom, and these would have been at the top of my list even as a kid.

From a diehard Akron Zip, shout out to MAC alum and former Bowling Green State University Falcons standout Richaun Holmes. Though I still don't know what the Sacramento Kings are, I do know that dude brings energy and hustle on a nightly basis.

I'm sorry, I can't find the greatest caption for this one because I keep humming the "Bolt 24" commercial. I blame you, Dame.
