Media This Month: January 2017

Usually I do a “What Happened This Month” recap every month, but this month I’m going to try something different. The WHTM posts are getting really big and hard to load, so I’m splitting it up into a “Media This Month” post with the new media I found this month and a “What Happened This Month” with a monthly summary and highlights and stuff.

We’ll see how it works.

  • 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”
