Guess Who's Knockin'.
Last week, for National Polar Bear Day, a zoo in Japan posted this YouTube video of one of its polar bears being awesome.
And while, sure, National Polar Bear Day has come and gone at this point, there's plenty we can still learn from this happy-go-lucky little dude — like how, given little more than a cruddy yellow pool noodle and an old Hippity Hop, he makes the most of his situation and comes up with all sorts of fun new games to entertain himself.
Finding ways to keep yourself busy this week, turns out, is much easier than even that. Unlike Mr. Polar Bear, you've got the following list of activities to entertain yourself. You've got little excuse, then, not to take a page out of the bear's playbook and make the most of your week.
