This is Me When-sday: 101

Wednesday’s back, so here come some GIFs describing how I feel in certain situations. (Also, if you’ve missed one in the past, you can always click here to see all the “This is me When-sday” posts!) So without further ado:

This is me when…

…winter decides to have one last hurrah:

froze

This is me whenI realize the upside is that I can work on my dance moves for another few days:

the only time i have good dance moves

This is me whenmy sister brings her kids to my apartment and I’m not used to being around children and their bodily fluids:

is anyone else seeing this

*Kidding. Kind of. I know she reads this. Love you! And your kids! Sorry I’m slightly grossed out by snot!

This is me whenI’m on a conference call at work and swear I just heard a toilet flush:

phone

Here’s hoping there are no unexpected noises in your conference calls this week!

This is me when…

…I realize I’ve done 100 “This-is-me-Wednesday”s:

sucked-one-year-away

This is me whenthe cashier gives me extra punches on my card, just because:

wow

This [was] me whenI was watching the award for Best Picture at the Oscars:

and-drop

For the record, LaLa Land and Moonlight were both amazing films*, and the part of me that likes cheering for the underdog was super excited, even if it lost me points on my ballot. 🙂

This is me whenmy friend says she’s in the neighborhood and is going to stop by:

cleaning-my-room

Although I feel like we all usually live a little less organized than we let on to guests, and maybe we should normalize the chaos more.

Here’s hoping you’ve got friends stopping by to see you this week!

*Am I turning into the kind of person that says “films” instead of “movies”? Maybe.

…my friend wins at our board game and I don’t want to be a sore loser but am also trying not to cry:*

cant-talk-or-ill-cry

This is [my weird sister] whenI’m visiting her but am also trying to get some work done while there:

This is me whenI endeavor to do my own hair for my friend’s wedding:
