Quickwrite - Tangled Christmas Lights

Its that time of year, Starbucks has just run out of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and I can smell the creme brulee in the air. My little sister is being such a drag, especially because I have so much to do this week. First of all my Uggs boots need to be cleaned, I have to find the perfect scarf for this amazing sweater weather, and of course, my Christmas lights need to be hung in my bedroom. My parents made me crawl all the way through the dirty, dingy cupboard beneath the stairs to find the perfect pair of all white lights, and just my luck when I finally get out, the entire string it tangled. This is going to take me years to fix, and I was supposed to go to the mall tonight to get the best little black dress for the Christmas party. They'll definitely be closed by the time I finish. I should just make my brat of a little sister fix them since she put them away last year. If I don't get them up soon, I won't be the first to set the trend of Instagram and my senior year will be ruined, I can't be popular if I'm just following everyone else. But, they are so tangled and I am so frustrated, like how do strings even get tangled, who decided this would be a funny idea? I wish the would just untangle themselves, my life is way too stressful to be going through this right now, I might even have a breakdown, and then my perfect holiday makeup will be ruined for my "selfie" later. Its like an endless not, how did this happen to me! Oh wait, there's only one tangle left.. I did it, I really did it, wow I'm a superstar.

  1. I overheard you say that you basically described a "common white girl," I think you did a pretty great job!

  3. Even though all of these things sound totally idiotic girls these days are actually like this. These girls are walking the halls in our schools with their perfect curls, infinity scarf and starbucks in hand.
