{Instructions} A Hypothetical Scenario

Dear Reader,
I thought since this week in class we're learning how to write instructions, I'd write some for you. In order to challenge myself, I thought I would write them about something I know next to nothing about. So, this is a hypothetical situation to which I am not in the least familiar.

How to Set Yourself up for a Stressful Week:

  • Yourself
  • A co-Sunday School Teacher
  • Your physics book
  • A skirt
  • A car
  • Siblings and/or a parent
  • A missing memory (if you don't have one, you can borrow mine... if you can find it. Although then it wouldn't be missing.) 
(See, this will not be complicated.)

Step 1.) Procrastinate both your physics tests until the Friday before they are due.

Step 2.) Forget to correspond with your co-Sunday School Teacher about who is teaching what in class until late Saturday night.

Step 3.) Wear a skirt ice-skating. (If you're a guy, this could be especially stressful, just saying.)

Step 4.) Go driving with your little siblings who are convinced they are going to die while you are at the wheel. ( If you don't have little siblings, another option would be to go driving with your mom, who is equally convinced of your prominent peril.)

Step 5.) Arrive late to Sunday School

Step 6.) Forget to blog until 10 minutes before the deadline.

Step 7.) Happy Stressing!

If you are still convinced this is a hypothetical situation, then I like you!!!


  1. Aaaahhh, Hannah, your posts refresh me so! But seriously. This situation sounds so familiar it's not even funny!

  2. Hannah, I love how seamlessly you mix honesty and humor! I don't feel particularly inclined to follow those instructions, but I can certainly identify with procrastination, lack of communication, and a faulty memory.
