I like to consider myself as a pretty positive person. Someone who tries to see the bright side of things, someone who reserves hysterical weeping for scenes in films where cute animals die, someone who, when the chips are down, can pick herself up and say: “well, it could be worse”.
This is how I think of myself, except when that one week of the month rolls around… you know which one.
Yes a woman’s period has the ability to turn her from a normal human being to the wicked witch of the west. It can make her cry – literally – over split milk. In times such as these (and for me, I mean TODAY) you want a way of explaining your inexplicable misery through something other than tear chocked words and the throwing of heavy objects.
Luckily, tumblr has been dealing with ‘feelz’ for a long time, ever since their first OPT (that’s ‘one true pairing’ for those of you not in the know) didn’t work out or died. If tumblr has taught my nothing else, it’s that there is a .gif for everything, including hormonal misery.
As an example, here is how my day can be summed up so far:
You then take all these feelings and make a blog post all about them, rather than actually doing something productive like try and salvage your degree. I couldn’t find a .gif for that part of the day.
All images come from various bits of tumblr.
