Bernie Sanders wants us to experience a romantic life again- and the optimism is admirable

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 25: Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., speaks during a hearing on Capitol Hill examining wages at large profitable corporations February 25, 2021 in Washington, DC. The committee is looking at why many low-wage workers in America qualify for public benefits even though thousands of them are employees of large corporations.

Sen.Bernie Sanders ( I-Vt.)has not only been the subject of clever memes, he has consistently been an advocate for workers' rights, pandemic relief, the bipartisanship of Covid-19 in the Senate, and other matters in the United States.

Sanders urged that the federal minimum wage increase from $7.25 to $15 an hour within the Covid-19 relief plan but was rejected in the Senate on Friday.

However, on Saturday, the Senate passed the $1.9 trillion relief bill, which will increase the direct stimulus payments by $1,400, extend unemployment benefits, and will ensure that many people get the vaccine, to name a few.

But there is one other thing that he is advocating for that's super sweet— finding romance.

"@SenSanders on the Senate floor saying we must crush COVID-19 so that young people can start dating again (among a long list of other reasons)," tweeted Tara Golshan of The Huffington Post.

Now I know you may be a little confused but, I promise you that you read this statement correctly. Sanders is not opposed to us properly getting back into the field to date and potentially find that special person.

How lovely!

His statement on Thursday encapsulated everything that the pandemic has adversely caused, which is more than financial hardship. The pandemic also affected mental wellbeing.

"You got young people, who want to go to school, who want to socialize, want to date ... they've been unable to do that ... and that has resulted in a very sharp increase in mental illness in this country, something by the way this legislation deals with," said Sanders.

Due to Sanders' advocacy, many Twitter users quickly supported his initiative for some loving outside of what society could be accustomed to in the pandemic.

Moreover, Bernie Sanders shows us that his support for our nation's betterment transcends monetary gains; he wants us to experience joy again, which we all deserve to have, albeit in a safe way.

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

Mum of two, bar manager, and lover of wine. And tequila.

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.

The one work productivity method that actually works wonders for me—and it involves a timer

How to make the most of your time while working from home.

If you're anything like me, you might have felt that working from home has its ebbs and flows.

For one, you can work from the comfort of your own home or now, since restrictions are somewhat lifted in the United States ( I'm in New York City), you could go to a coffee shop if you want to change your scenery.

On the other hand, working from home can have its pitfalls because it can be easy to be distracted by your phone, television, or outside noises.

Essentially, productivity can easily fly out of the window.

But how can it be easier to make the most out of the day while working from home?
