This is How I Feel, Volume 78

this is how I feel

If you’re new here (hello! hi!), This is How I Feel is the longest running series on here. It happens on Fridays, reflecting my deep, deep love of GIFs (I pronounce it the right way, with a soft G) and dumb captions. You can jump in right here or start allllll the way at the very beginning.


When this wrap dress I’m trying on is way too complicated.

When I’m only one on the road that apparently knows how to use a blinker.



Watching the Super Bowl halftime show.

But then my girl Missy Elliott appeared.

At a hair appointment, trying to explain that I want the same haircut, but just … a little different. Better. But not too wild. Nevermindjustdowhatever.

    BWAHAHAHA!!!! Yes, and AMEN, to the hair appointment one! I can’t believe my stylist hasn’t smacked me yet. I say exactly that. Every. Time.

    The first GIF is me when I first learned how to wear a sari at sixteen. And every time since. I may or may not still do that and I’ll be celebrating my 11th anniversary of turning 29 this summer. My mother still shakes her head at me and then practically blinks her sari on. :/

    Getting my hair cut today, and I think I’m going to tell my stylist EXACTLY that.

    We all seem to have reacted that way to Missy! I was just breezing by the show, staring in horror when her song came on and I froze and even said out loud, “Is that Missy?” Twenty minutes before, if you had asked me if I knew a Missy Elliot song I would have said no, but I apparently do and was so excited to see her!

    I just wanted Katy and her weird sweatshirt dress to slide out of the way so I could enjoy uninterrupted Missy.

    Yes to both the superbowl gifs–Missy Elliott for the WIN! I may have done that exact dance when I heard that beat play….

    Yes to Missy!! Literally the day before the super bowl I heard a Missy song in a movie and was like, “damn, where has Missy been lately? I miss her.” Guess I Jedi-mind-tricked her into appearing. You’re welcome.

    1. Hilarious as always. 2. How do you do this? I just think it would take hours to find all the GIFs. Do you find the GIF first and then think of commentary? Or other way around?

    Yes, yes and yes. Thankfully my stylist understands when I say that. ;)

    Brooklyn Nine Nine?!?! You really are my hero.
    The shark looks like me when I can’t find the sleeve while putting on my coat. Probably because I’m holding a one year old at the same time. The struggle is real.
