The Honest Phases of Yearbook Signing

Did we get it right?

1. It’s one week until school is out. Your love for your fellow classmates is deep and real. You even love your nemesis, Nancy, who makes passive-aggressive comments about how you can’t pull off overalls. HOW WILL YOU SURVIVE WITHOUT SEEING THESE KIDS ALL SUMMER!?

5. Your brilliant brain is fading. You start making up inside jokes you’re not quite sure happened. Oh well.

6. You’re so so tired. Decide you deserve fries and mac and cheese at lunch for all your inspired work.

10. He writes “Have a good summer, Lauren.” Your name is not Lauren.

11. You just don’t have any more left in you. You dream of being free for summer, tanning in Bora Bora with Mr. L.

12. Skratch Mr. L. He’s dead to you.

13. You officially don’t care if you ever see any of these kids again. Get me to summer.

13. Your BFF finally hands you her yearbook. You tell her you’ll do it later.

14. You get a second wind after watching 23 rerun episodes of Friends that night. You think about how your BFF is the most magical creature on this earth. You type out six drafts of the perfect yearbook letter to her.

15. She distracts you with disgusting, yet amazing pimple pomping YouTube videos the next day. You forget to sign it.

16. 5 years go by. You have still yet to sign it. But you’re still BFFs…and majorly regret your crush on Mr. L.
