The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

The Good

  • Getting real letters and packages in the mail.
  • Christmas: an excuse to wear a super ugly sweater.
  • Bad jokes from third grade becoming funny again.
  • Drinking the last of the eggnog straight from the jug. #rebelstatus
  • They changed the back of the Cap’n Crunch box!
  • Making the yellow light.

The Bad

  • Switching the radio station only to find your favorite song is just ending.
  • Paying for haircuts you end up hating.
  • When your hair looks best just before you shower.
  • Going to bed early only to lay there for four hours
  • Pressing a button on a toy at the store, then walking away quickly because it won’t stop… Act natural!
  • Most of the jokes I know.
  • When you see someone you know outside of school and you don’t want to talk to them.

The Ugly

  • The constant struggle: do I wear a coat or just a jacket?
  • The only way to express your emotions is through a mime.
  • The ongoing battle of not wanting to be fat but simultaneously wanting to eat everything in the room.
  • Driving to school blind because there’s no room for you in the garage.
  • Having to skip breakfast and wait for B-lunch.
  • My face and hair all Christmas break.
  • Having to scrape ice off your car in the mornings.

My single most important goal in life is to get on Ellen.
