Despite their bests attempts to do their own grocery shopping, and “stay grounded,” very few celebrities actually come across as being particularly relatable; they have 24/7 childcare, they take lavish vacations, and they spend more on awards show fashion that most of us spend on yearly rent.

While 2016 was a rough year, her light-hearted tweets made the brutal fifty-two weeks go by a lot faster. Behold, the moments when her twitter improved our lives:
