3. As you wait for it to heat up, you go to the family computer to check Myspace.

4. After getting pissed that your computer got ANOTHER virus from Limewire, you go back to the bathroom and begin to straighten your hair.

11. Then, get to school and avoid the popular kids like the plague.


12. Now it's time to go to class. When you're supposed to be doing math problems, you spend that time writing song lyrics on your Vans.

13. In English, you spend your time writing angst-y poems about feelings.

14. In History, your teacher questions why your bangs are always covering one eye.

15. After that is lunch! At lunch, you sit on the ground with your other emo friends pretending you understood what the curse of curves really was.

16. Before you know it, the rest of the school day is over and you’re home taking new 🔥 selfies.

17. You can't decide between them, so you go ahead and upload several in an album on Myspace called "xx.Just Me.xx."

18. Then you change your Myspace song again, this time to "All That I've Got" by The Used because you're feeling a lot of emotions.

19. After that, it's time to sit at the dinner table with your parents while they comment on your eye makeup.

20. You neglect your vegetables, and then go into your room, put on your headphones, and drown out the rest of the world.

21. You end your night by posting a bulletin that urges your friends to pc4pc while you sleep soundly.
