You wake up one morning with a tickle in your throat. You:
Panic! This is officially the last day of your existence. You quickly compose your goodbye message and send it to everyone in your phone book. Goodbye, cruel world!
Worry a bit, but decide that this is your bodyâ€™s way of telling you to slow down and relax. One day of break time isnâ€™t too much and you have friends whoâ€™ll help you catch up with schoolwork.
Rejoice because you get to skip school and lose weight in the process. Woohoo!
You get your report card and discover that youâ€™ve failed one subject for the quarter. You:
Cry your eyes out and lock yourself in your room. You refuse to talk to anybody because youâ€™re too ashamed of your grade. Your life is totally over!
Mope the rest of the day. Your mood picks up the next morning though, when you decide to hit your schoolbooks to get a head start on the next quarter. Thereâ€™s always a way to pull up that grade!
Stuff your report card into your bag. Itâ€™s one subject! Who cares, right?
Your favorite ice cream flavor isnâ€™t available at the store. This makes you feel:
Sad because nothing else can make your day better than your favorite flavor. What will happen now? You think, â€œIâ€™m doomed to feel depressed forever!â€
Bummed, but not enough to keep you from trying the storeâ€™s new flavor. After all, ice cream is ice cream!
Excited to try you second favorite flavor. Nothing makes you happier than a double scoop of yummy ice creamâ€”who cares what flavor it is?
Youâ€™re on a road trip to the beach with you friends. The traffic situation is simply horrendous! You:
Frown and keep muttering under your breath, â€œGod, this is the worst road trip ever!â€ You hate being in a stuffy car with no leg room. Whose idea was it to go on a road trip, anyway?
Are pissed like your friends, but you quickly turn the situation around by playing fun road games. Who says you have to be bored on the road?
Scream how much you canâ€™t wait to get to the beach. This annoys your friends, but you keep jumping around in your seat and shrieking anyway. Yes, the entire way.
Thereâ€™s a cool concert this weekend. You ask permission from your parents, but sadly, they donâ€™t allow you to go. You:
Sulk and stop talking to themâ€”this is war! All your friends are going to be there and itâ€™s going to suck not being able to relate Monday morning at school when they all talk about it.
Think itâ€™s unfair, but youâ€™re still hopeful because you know your friends are going to call you when the band is playing your favorite song. Your parents didnâ€™t say anything about not taking phone calls, right?
Totally understand. Besides, you can pop the bandâ€™s DVD in your player and put it on full blast. Itâ€™ll be just like in Aranetaâ€”even better since thereâ€™s no one to disturb you.
After an entire day of fun and adventure at an amusement park, you discover that your digicamâ€™s memory card got corrupted! You:
Throw a tantrum and declare that youâ€™re stupid and canâ€™t even make a simple digicam work. You think, â€œWhatâ€™s wrong with me?â€
Get annoyed because you were looking forward to uploading your pictures on Facebook. But itâ€™s okay, you know you can just grab the pictures from your friendsâ€™ albums.
Take silly pics of yourself and dub the album â€œI had SO much fun today!â€ Youâ€™re going to flood your friendsâ€™ inbox with your self-portraits even if you know theyâ€™ll get irritated.
Your favorite pair of shoes finally gave up on youâ€”the sole is now permanently detached from the seams. You:
Get depressed because it was your parentâ€™s birthday gift for you. You donâ€™t want to wear any other footwear, even if it means taping up the sides of your shoes so they wonâ€™t fall apart.
Take a picture of it for posterityâ€™s sake, then browse online for new shoes. No need to cry over a pair, after all, your feet are getting bigger. Youâ€™re bound to get new ones, anyway.
Donâ€™t sweat it. But you tell your parents, maybe they shouldâ€™ve given you a more expensive pair because the shoes donâ€™t seem high-quality enough for you!

You got Mal!
