We know how you feel about Monday morning -- not the greatest day, right? You fumble for the coffee, stare bleary-eyed at your overstuffed inbox, and wonder why you aren't still wrapped in a blanket cocoon on the sofa watching reruns of "Mad Men." We'll ease your pain and let you in on some of what this week has to offer.
MONDAY: New York City hosts the 10th annual Games for Change festival, which brings together funders, educators and developers to collaborate on how video games can be used to promote better education and social good.
TUESDAY: Kanye West debuts his sixth studio album today, called "Yeezus." Between that and his brand-new baby daughter, the celeb has a full plate!
WEDNESDAY: Today marks the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth, also known as African American Emancipation Day or the end of slavery. It has been celebrated since 1865.
THURSDAY: Today is the Jodi Arias status hearing, where the judge will check in with the attorneys to discuss their preparations for the new penalty phase of her July 18 retrial. Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, but jurors couldn't reach an unanimous decision about whether she should be sentenced to death or life in prison. If the case is retried, a new jury will only need to determine her sentence.
FRIDAY: The 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest will be held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Owners will gather to show off their homely pooches and compete for a $1,500 cash price.
