I'm not sure how she does it, but somehow Sarah C. Anderson captures my life in her comic, Sarah Scribbles. This summer, she's basically summarized my entire life in these 17 comic strips. Seriously, how does she know?
1 Other People
This is totally and absolutely me... other people in the sun? A light, golden tan. Me in the sun? Apply sunblock, wear long sleeves, still fry.
2 Man Bun Vs. MAN Bun
I have NO PROBLEM with the man bun. But I'm even more of a fan of MAN Bun. My hero!
3 Period Surprise
As if your day wasn't bad enough already, you summon your period just by being... late.
4 Deadline Looming
This is me, every day, with every deadline this summer. Ignore it as it bears down on you, and it'll go away... right?
Sure, I can now contour better than any Kardashian. And sure, my house is a wreck and my work's not done. But so?
6 Stupid Roller Coaster
This is so accurate it made me cry. Someone please tell me how to make it stop.
7 I Know These People
I know people like this. They frighten me. I mean, no one can really be that... good... right?
8 Natural Girls
Ha! Well, how are we supposed to know what "natural" means when we're getting so many mixed messages?
And I thought I had my life together, until I saw everyone's engagement photos, baby bump photos, and ... new baby photos. *le sigh*
Stress really does feel like a heavy stone, one you can't ignore or set down... one that you pretend for the world doesn't exist.
11 Every Time!
Why is it that even when I've got headphones on, people STILL want to talk to me? I need to work on my bitchface.
12 The Awkward
I do and say stupid, socially awkward stuff like this all the time. It's good to know I'm not alone, I guess?
13 After Every Haircut
I'm growing my hair right now, so naturally I'm envious of every chic short hairstyle I see. If I cut it though? I'll suddenly want long hair again. I KNOW IT.
14 Being Late
I'm not worried! Ever. Because I know if I'm late, all I have to do is wear white pants or shorts and leave all of my tampons at home, and it'll start.
I have no problem sticking to my awesome healthful diet all day long. But what happens at night? I eat everything in sight because I'm so hungry.
16 Over It
This happens all the time. Something bad will happen, but it's not just bad, it's the worst thing in the world. An hour later? I'm fine. Overly dramatic? Me?
17 Listening to Lyrics
This is honestly how I feel about my two favorite songs this summer, "Big Ideas" by The Boxer Rebellion and "Spirits" by The Stumbellas. Listening to them moves me. Singing along soothes my soul. Reading the lyrics? Meh.
