Awkward-

  • You ask a question and know the answer as soon as you open your mouth
  • When your goal for the day is “lotsa wurds for nonamiro or whatever you call that thing where you need to know how to english goodly”
  • When your mom throws a bottle of pump hand sanitizer at you and the pump drives into your arm and bruises you
  • When you’re in the middle of eating food, forgetting that you’re eating food, goes and plays piano for an hour, then resumes eating food.
  • Leaving space in your math book, title a new page, AND THEN NOT DO THE MATH.
  • Sliding on your kitchen floor and spraining your toe
  • When you read a quote that says “Forget your past” and you read it “Forget your PSAT” #juniorproblems
  • When a three year old tells you that Trump is the president, when you had no idea what a president even was when you were three.
  • When GoodReads tells you that you’ve only read 82 books this year
  • When you make the nastiest cup of coffee you’ve ever had just for the aesthetic of it
  • When FaceBook keeps trying to make you sign in when they were the one who DOESN’T let you sign in because you don’t remember the fake birthday you provided them

That Moment When-

  • you’re spending more time on Twitter than doing actual school because seeing other people NaNoing is wayy more satisfying.
  • you get a math problem where the units were vibrations/sec/lb.
  • a program expects you to write TWO 700 word essays as part of your application
  • Twitter tells you that 40% of the people who read your tweets have AT&T and 36% use Verizon.
  • #WorldSeries trends for a whole week after the World Series actually happened
  • Hillary has “hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, 2016 presidential candidate” in her twitter profile
  • Everyone on twitter on election day says they’re voting for Trump, then the day after everyone was mad about Trump winning
  • you’re discussing the Gettysburg Address in AP Lang and one of your classmates says “Trump’s speech” instead of “Lincoln’s speech”
  •  😂😂 IS THE 2015 WORD OF THE YEAR ACCORDING TO THE OXFORD DICTIONARY LIKE WHATEVEN
