So how on EARTH is it the day before the last day of 2016?! Let’s begin, shall we?

whtm-december16

Highlights-

  • Cookie baking
  • Christmas concert
  • Doing Blogmas
  • CHRISTMAS FINALLYchristmas
  • Playing flute in the Christmas Eve and Christmas church services
  • Going on a family trip

Awesome-

  • When you follow 123 people on Twitter, 123 people on Instagram, and have 123 written blogposts at the same time
  • When you find Diego Rivera from the PSAT on a SAT/ACT prep question…
  • WHEN YOU LEARN HOW TO MAKE CLICKY PICTURES ON THE BLOGGY BECAUSE WORDPRESS DOESNT DO IT FOR YOU
  • When a guy tells you to go on Pinterest to look up something

Awkward-

  • That ONE WEEK you’re on top of things and post homework early, no one else does so you can’t reply and get full credit.
  • WHEN YOU DO WORSE ON YOUR PSAT THAN YOU DID ON YOUR PSAT 10
  • When you go for 4 days without checking Insta and Twitter and get so behind that you don’t even bother to catch up
  • When you forget to post on both Instagram and Twitter on Christmas
  • WHEN YOU GET A PRETTY DANG AWESOME SAT SCORE BUT GET A 3 ON THE ESSAY ON A SCALE OF 2 TO 8…. AND NOW HAVE TO TAKE IT AGAIN
  • When the first semester is officially over and I still don’t know how to pronounce the last name of my calc teacher, because asynchronous online courses…
  • When all the paperwork together for your online course is literally 8 inches thick, thus disproving the fact that online stuffs are more environmentally friendly
  • When an essay prompt is “Elaborate on your academic and personal experiences with science and tell us WHAT MAKES YOU HUNGRY FOR MORE?”
  • When colleges email you and ask you to apply but don’t tell you WHAT STATE THEYRE IN.

That Moment When-

  • You learn the hard way that unless you like really, really cold showers, don’t be that idiot that showers last.
  • You get flooded with blogmas posts to read and vlogmas videos to watch but still have to study for finals
  • You find out that it’s National Wear a Plunger on Your Head Day (LIKE WHAT EVEN)
  • You finally stalk the twitters of people you actually know in real life for the first time since you’ve made a twitter in 2014.
  • WordPress tells you to to upgrade to “rockandminerals4him.blog” for $22, when you could move to “rockandminerals4him.com” for $15
  • Colleges be like “Congratulations on your recent outstanding academic achievements, NOW COME PAY ME A LOT OF MONEY MUAHAHAHA”
  • Autocorrect changes “is” to “Ida” because OBVIOUSLY “Ida” is more commonly used than “is”
