whtm-january17

Highlights-

  • 50 followers on the blog!!! Thank you guys!

50followers

  • Deciding to write the 7 in 2017 with a bar through the middle
  • Getting a new president (and me live tweeting the inauguration)
  • When all the people in your family finally get at least two digits in their age
  • Playing The Stars and Stripes Forever in band, and alternating between the first flute and piccolo part, which are both SUPER HIGH
  • Helicopters, and also finishing an entire SciOly event withing 2 weeks

Awesome-

  • When you realise that you’re basically British, because only the British say “realise,” “flautist,” and “numpty”
  • When you realise that Peter Hollins made a “Hallelujah” cover
  • Writing blogposts you CANNOT WAIT TO PUBLISH
  • Making cookies instead of doing school
  • SNOW (granted, it was mostly ice and there was about 0.5329849875cm of it, but who’s counting?)
  • Babysitting adorable kids
  • Finding out that your friend also does SciOly
  • Figuring out that playing scales while reading is the best thing ever
  • Having someone from “Harassment” calling your teacher during class
  • Not having flute lesson during the one week where you barely picked up your flute

Awkward-

  • Writing on your resume “assisting youth in creative endeavors” when in reality you helped 2 kids make crafts.
  • When you realise that the lyrics to “Baby It’s Cold Outside” are actually really creepy
  • When you ask a question in class and the teacher answers “Thank you for asking! I agree!”
  • When a spammer comments on your blog saying that the audio quality on your blog was superb?!?! EXCUSE ME I DONT HAVE AUDIO ON MY BLOG
  • Time signatures of 2 1/2 over 4 (WHO DOES THESE THINGS?)
  • Leaning over out of bed to turn on the radio, then falling out bed and bruising yourself.
  • When you get up to go to the bathroom during that awkward timeslot where it’s too early to get up and too late to go back to sleep
  • Google docs on mobile. Nuff said
  • When you’re the only one in physics class who know about the properties of mercury
  • Being the only girl in class
  • When you get all excited to use the stamp that’s been lying in your room forever…then realise that it’s a Christmas stamp and it’s not longer appropriate
  • When you twist your ankle really hard by standing up when your legs are both numb
  • When you instinctively double tap an insta screenshot someone sent you

That Moment When-

  • You have a blogpost scheduled to be published in 7 hours and you haven’t written it yet
  • You get a text that says “So I have something to tell you, but you can’t tell anyone (esp family members) and try not to scream ok?”

no-screaming

  • You’re logging hours for PE for this semester and realize that you literally haven’t done any PE since the first quarter
  • You open twitter to tweet about something, then tweet about something else instead but end up tweeting about said event
  • The teacher tells you to simulate testing conditions for your practice test, and you instantly turn on music
  • You find a bar of 4/4 in a piece of 4/4 music
  • When you spend 15 minutes addressing an envelope for a recommendation letter and then forget to give it to the person you’re asking the rec from.
  • You complain about how busy you are, then go do Chinese and find that you’re learning about the words “busy” “business” and “time”
  • You go to the computer to print something and end up eventually with a stack of printed paper 8 inches think…but you still don’t have that one sheet you were going to print
  • YOU FINALLY REALISE THAT THERES A WEEK BEFORE THE FIRST SCIOLY TOURNAMENT OF THE SEASON AND YOURE NOT READY

Quotes-

Me: “Is it socially acceptable to put gifs on resumes? Because I really want to put this gif on my resume”

million things i havne't done.gif

Me *looks at milk carton*

Me: “Man these milk people are good, they found a way to keep milk until 2017!”

*crickets*

  • Chopin’s Valse Op. 64, No 2; piano
