Happy 2014! How is it going for you guys so far? If you just answered that question with "terrible" or "not great, thanks for reminding me" or "shut the hell up and mind ya business," then we definitely have something that will perk you back up. After all, studies suggest that 91 percent of people already hate 2014.*

For the purpose of this post, let's just assume your new year isn't going the way you wanted it to. Maybe you already skipped out on the gym and you're currently making some sweet, sweet love to an entire sleeve of Oreos. Or your resolution to meet someone new every day fell to pieces when you realized that you hate people, new or otherwise. Or perhaps you're still hungover from New Year's Eve. Whatever the case, there is a video of a baby panda riding a rocking pony just a few scrolls down that way, just waiting for you to watch and instantly feel better about life in general. 

We don't think you need more explanation about the video because "baby panda riding a rocking pony" is really explanation enough, but just in case, you should know that the end of the video holds an adorable surprise. Spoiler alert: the panda falls off and lands in such a cute fashion that you'll forget all about how you resolved to get off the Internet more often and go outside. Outside sucks. Fresh air is overrated. Who needs nature when you have YouTube?

Witness the solution to your case of the 2014 bummer-itis below:
