Emojis… Are They A Language?

For the first part of the week 6 Student Blogging Chalenge I chose to make a story that you can finish in the comments if you like.

(ahem) Once upon a time there was a fish who wasn’t allowed to do anything. One day he was swimming along when a helicopter came and stole him out of the ocean! He was in the helicopter when he realized that there were other animals too. The one he specifically noticed was a turtle. He was still looking around when he noticed also in the helicopter was a girl. She was looking at a bee and talking to it. He couldn’t make out all the words but he heard: little pet, keep and forever. This was when he got really mad. He head butted the glass of his tank, and ended up on the seat of a bicycle. He then jumped of the bicycle and flew through the air back into the ocean which the helicopter was flying over! The end. Epilogue. Three years later the fish was sitting in his coral house eating ice cream when… (for you to finish!)

Here are the emoji prompts I used to create my story!


Now onto an emoji guessing game! All these emojis are really weird expressions we keep saying and people don’t always understand!An example of the type of expression would  be:  Under weather, for if someone is sick or not feeling well.

1. “It’s raining cats and dogs!” 2. “Kill 2 birds with 1 stone.” 3. “Penny for your thoughts?” 4. “Cost me an arm and a leg!” 5. “It’s a piece of cake!”

Now for the last part I made an emoji that I think I would use often. I like the rolling eyes emoji but sometimes it’s kind of hard to tell if I’m joking or not. To change that, my emoji looks like me and the mouth is kind of smiley. My favorite part of me (the emoji) is that it’s perfect for when you’re  joking that you’re  annoyed with someone and you don’t want them to get accidentally offended. I really think that for some reason my emoji really captured me in real life. I think that the expression on my face is one I wear often; I’m joking around pretending to be serious but you can still see that under all that there is a hint of laughter. I like pretending that I don’t find the whole thing hilarious and then bursting into laughter when I can’t hold it in anymore


Well, thanks again for reading

bye for now
