Here’s what the Heave staff has been into this week:

I’ve basically been watching my Amazon order status all week, and today the PlayStation 4 is on a truck, coming to my house. I’m stoked. Now only if there was something really worthwhile to play on it.

Somebody shared this on Facebook earlier this week. It’s an animated guide on on how to interact with an introverted person. As someone who has been overly self-conscious, insecure and just uncomfortable in social┬ásituations┬ámy whole life, this was very relatable and hopefully something people can understand.

Though I’m sure your social media feeds are blowing up with word of Batkid as we speak, I’ve been glued to what might be this year’s best human interest story all day. A 5-year-old boy who was diagnosed with leukemia after barely a year of existing on this planet got his wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation today, where around 10,000 San Franciscans banded together to turn the entire city into Gotham City, allowed him to be Batman for a day, and even set up various villain busts in different locals. Get ready for a lot of dust in the air.
