4) That time she included the likes of Aretha Franklin, Destiny’s Child, and Hamilton on a Spotify playlist.

5) That time she also shared her workout mix and it included freakin’ “Whip My Hair.”

6) That time…just…whatever this dance is.

Presumably, she will be continuing her social media life after she leaves the White House, but if not, let’s try to enjoy her now. Turnip for Michelle Obama.
