Awkward-

  • Dropping caterpillar skins and poop all over the floor
  • Coughing through the first note the band plays all year.
  • Deciding on a phone case cover design but not actually going to get a cover, so going around with a sheet of scrapbook paper taped to the back of your phone
  • Eating salad straight from the big salad bowl because there was one portion left and I was too lazy to wash another bowl. Besides, there wasn’t anyone around to watch me.
  • Finally figuring out what OPACY is after following the Orioles for a really long time. (It stands for Orioles’ Park at Camden Yards). Also, you would know this if you were following my Twitter because that’s literally all I post about).

That Moment When-

  • You receive an ARC that you don’t remember asking for
  • You write your physics assignment on your hand then wash it off before writing it down on paper, so you have to ask someone literally 20 minutes after class ends.
  • The three “suggested follow”s on Twitter are other baseball teams because you follow a baseball team. #whatoneartheven #itdoesntworkthatway
  • Abeka World History defines Islam as “A fanatical militant new religion that sprang from the fervid imagination of an Arab mystic.” #likewhateven #nobiasatall #yeahright
  • You mouse over an emoji and the description box thingie that pops up when you mouse over it is “face with no good expression, medium light skin tone”
  • You check the forecast and it says something like “53% chance of rain at 10:23 tomorrow morning, 56% at 10:47, 42% at 10:54” #WOEeven

Quotes-

Let’s just talk about Romans 7:15 for a minute.

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. ~Romans 7:15

Does this not describe everybody’s procrastination life, or is it just me?

And also this from the debate:

Clinton: “I have a feeling that by, the end of this evening, I’m going to be blamed for everything that’s ever happened.”
Trump: “Why not? Why not?”
Clinton: “Yeah, ‘Why not?’ You know, just join the debate by saying more crazy things.”
