Going On Vacation To An Amusement Park: Yet Another Presentation In GIFs

I LOVE going on vacation! Getting there can be a long and arduous task, but once you get to the amusement park/beach/city it makes it all worth it.  Let’s take a look at this process and fantasize about vacations that we will never go on (a trip to the Moon, anyone?) Today we’re focusing on amusement park trips!

So your parents tell you that you’re going on vacation and you’re like

And you immediately start shopping for clothes like

But packing them all is another thing and you’re like

Mr Bean Packing

So vacation day arrives and you have to wake up super early to leave like

And you have to wait FOREVER to check in with your airline like

And all of those airport security signs make you suspicious of everybody like

So you finally get to security and no matter how many times you’ve done it, walking through the metal detector thing makes you all nervous like

But when they clear you to go through you feel inappropriately triumphant like

So after making it through the entire airport you get on your flight and there’s that one annoying person who walks by you like

But you try to relax anyway up until the takeoff, and you’re all like

And once you get up in the air you try to distract yourself and read, but then you get airsick like

And you end up just sleeping through the flight like

But you finally get there and on the way to your hotel you’re like

You check in inside the lobby, and when you go up to your room and look in the mirror you look like

But once you freshen up a little you’re all like

So the next day you finally get to the park and you’re all like

And you speed off to your favorite ride like

And as you’re riding you’re filled with pure joy like

But later somebody asks you to ride the HUGE roller coaster with them and you’re like

But they make fun of you until you agree like

So you’re in line and your friend asks you if you’re ok and you’re like

You get to the car and the attendant straps you in like

And you’re FREAKING OUT like

And when the moment of doom hits and the roller coaster starts you’re all like

And you’re left at the mercy of this giant ride until the end like

So you eventually get off and you look like

And you’re on such a high that you walk away from the ride like an idiot like

And when your friend asks you if you liked it you’re just like

At the end of the day you and your siblings are bouncing off the walls like

So you go back to the hotel and throw up all of the cotton candy and ice cream you ate like

The Writing Process: A Presentation in GIFs

If you couldn’t already tell from my previous posts, I love GIFs.  That being said, I decided to make another one featuring GIFs that highlights the super-fun writing process! *insert sarcastic thumbs-up here* Let’s get started!

One day you’re just sitting there like

When suddenly inspiration hits you like

So you rush to your computer like

And start typing like a crazy person like

Then you lose track of time until you fall asleep and you wake up like

And at work/school you can’t stop thinking about what you’ve written like

So you finally get home all excited and ready to write like

When suddenly writer’s block hits you like

And you sit there staring at the screen and panicking like

So you desperately type out something, anything, like

But when you read it back its bad and you’re just like

You convince yourself that you’re terrible and sit there like

And you brand yourself a failure like

So you don’t write for a while and spend your time procrastinating like

Until one day you buckle down and write something and it’s actually pretty good and you feel like

And you tell yourself that you’re going to stay motivated and keep writing like


And when you finally finish it looks like

An Accurate Depiction Of My Life In A Band In GIFs

If you haven’t read some of my previous posts (shame on you), then you might not know that I am in a band called Spinning Jenny.  If you’re a Paramore fan, then you may know us as the winners of their “Still Into You” cover contest!  Regardless if you’re familiar with my band or not, I hope that you enjoy this post that answers a question I am frequently asked: “so, what’s it like being in a band?”

Lucky for you, I brought GIFs! *squee*

The process basically starts like this…

You want to learn a new song, so you listen to one and you’re either like

Or like

So then you have to learn it, and sometimes it’s easy and you’re like

But sometimes it’s really hard and you’re like

So you finally learn it and you play it all together for the first time and it sounds terrible like

But after you practice it a couple times you’re like

So finally it’s the day of the show and you wake up like

But as the day goes on the anxiety builds and you’re like

So you get to wherever you’re playing and sometimes there’s only one person there like

But sometimes there’s that glorious moment when a lot of people are there and on stage it looks like

So you gulp down your nervousness like

And you start to rock it out like

Then you notice people are getting into it like

So you start going nuts like

But SOMETIMES you get too into it and mess up a little and mentally you’re like

But when you look out at the crowd they’re still like

So you just move on like

You finish up your last song all confident like

And people are clapping like

And you think you look cool but really you’re just grinning like

So you take down all of your equipment and by now you look like

Reaction GIF: sweating, Robert Hays, Airplane!

But somehow people still want to talk to you afterwards and you feel like

And there’s always that one drunk guy who’s like

So you just take it all in like

And once you finally get home you’re just like

So when you wake up the next day somebody calls and books you for another show and you’re like

And so the process starts all over again!
