So you woke up this morning like you do every Tuesday with the thought: “Well, at least it isn’t Monday!” Maybe you checked in with Instagram and felt jealous of your friend who’s in Ibiza or Cambodia or somewhere you’ve never been. Then, perhaps your friend texted you a super serious missive: “NSYNC IS REUNITING!” You guarded your heart because getting pumped about rumors like this can ruin your entire week, but there is the news all over the internet. It’s true! You allowed yourself to lose your mind:

It was tearin’ up your heart so bad. It felt like Justin Timberlake, who is often thought of as the hold-out, was bathing in the tears waterfalling out of our eyes.
