1. Always be prepared

You never know when you'll need a wig, or twenty dollars cash. Better to be prepared than regretfully without a wig in a time of need.

2. Mockery is the sincerest form of flattery

Or is it imitation? Your friends are definitely mocking.

3. You don't always have to keep up with pop culture

The Kardashian's are having too many kids to keep up at this point.

4. Comforting your friends is important

Even if you don't understand their drama sometimes.

5. Be self confident

No one else will believe how great you are if you don't.

6. Relate to others by using common interests

Although, maybe check about the other person's interests first.

7. Take some time for yourself once in a while

Everybody Hurts sometimes.

8. Never give up on your childhood dreams

It's never too late to become the hay king.

9. Consider advice before making a move

"Don't be an idiot." -Michael Scott

10. Accept your faults

And keep standing on bad days.

11. Enjoy the little things

And don't let anyone make you feel bad about enjoying them.

12. Mockery is still the sincerest form of flattery

Jokes on you, haters.

13. Don't be afraid to state your feelings

Sometimes, it works out alright for you in the end. Especially if you include a megaphone in your declaration.

14. Your time to shine will come

Although getting to the top might take longer than you want, and the goal might change along the way, things will turn out alright.

15. Sometimes you just have to hug it out

It's good to let people around you know that they matter (probably easier to do this when you're not concussed, but that's a personal choice).

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

1. "AHH...Stahhp. I coulda dropped mah croissant"

20 Thoughts You Will Never Get To Say Out Loud While On Vocal Rest

You don't realize how much you love to talk... until you're not allowed to.

2
views

Recently, after a trip to the doctor's office, I was not-so-pleasantly surprised to find out that I have laryngitis.

As part of the healing process, I was instructed to go on vocal rest, aka not talk/sing/whisper/use my voice at all, until I got better (although due to my sore throat, talking became extremely painful).

As anyone who knows me can tell you, I'm a very vocal person, and I love to talk, so this news did not go over well.

1. So not even whisper?

2. What if I really need to get someone's attention?

3. Okay, I SUCK at mouthing words.

4. Do I really not have a whiteboard? I don't want to waste a whole notebook writing down what I need to say.

5. I'm really gonna end up texting my mom while she's in the same room as me just to ask what's for dinner.

6. Not gonna lie, I feel pretty rude just smiling when people say "I hope you feel better soon!"

7. Day two of vocal rest: I have resorted to communicating by hand gestures: thumbs up = yes, thumbs down = no.

8. Currently texting my dad to ask if we still have my old chalkboard from when I was a kid somewhere in the basement.

9. Yes, I am 100% ready to communicate via chalkboard.

10. Might as well listen to some music to cheer myself up.

11. This is my favorite song!

12. Aaaand I can't sing along.

13. Should I wear a shirt that says "currently on vocal rest" so that people don't think I'm being rude when I don't respond to them?

14. ... I'm totally overthinking this, aren't I?

15. Am I allowed to laugh?

16. Because I really can't help but laugh sometimes.

17. Why is every song I listen to a song that I really want to sing along to?

18. That pharmacist definitely thought I was the weirdest person ever when I handed her a note that said "Hi my name is Sarah, and I'm currently on vocal rest so I can't speak. I'm here to pick up my prescription."

19. Is my voice gonna sound different when I'm able to speak again?

20. Seriously, how long is this gonna last?
