Jazelyn did a post like this last year [check it out here], and I wanted to do one towards the end of the year! Anyhoozays, let's get on with it!
Sign it like a boss!
Tip #1: H.A.G.S? Are you for real?!
Don't do H.A.G.S. I mean, sure we get it. "Have a great summer" and all. But, PSH, that's so boring! And besides, what if you don't see them again? And all you said is "Have a great summer". Actually, you didn't even say that! You said frikkin' HAGS!
My friend, [I'm calling him Pigeon. His name kinda reminds me of that, and he likes birds...] and my other friend, [let's call her... *random name pops into head* Sally]. Pigeon is moving away, so I'm not seeing him for a year. Sally is possibly moving away. I wouldn't just want to say HAGS to them.
Tip #2: Messages
There is this one guy I know. His name is J. He never signed the yearbook with the typical 'ol 'HAGS':
"You are artistic. You are artistic. You are artistic. You should speak more. Do you like Harry Potter? Have you ever been struck by lightning? You are artistic." - J
O.O He said "You are artistic" like 5 times...
Anyway, yeah. He would always do little messages like that instead. J would say weird things like "Have you ever been struck by lightning?"! Better than HAGS, am I right?
Tip #3: Please write neatly.
If you are giving someone your phone number, do you know how hard it is to figure out whose number it is, when you can't read the signature? This one girl gave a bunch of people her number, but no one knew whose it was, since her signature was like a scribble!
Tip #4: Know what you're writing with!
Sign it with a fat sharpie, it will probably bleed through. [Skinny sharpies might not, depending] Pencils can smear and rub off, washable markers can also smear and rub off. Also, with washable markers, one drop of water can ruin the whole message.
When I sign a yearbook, I think doing it in pen or a skinny sharpie would be best.
Tip #5: Dahling, boring is so last year.
Like I mentioned before, know what you're writing with! The type of utensil [that makes it sound like a fork or spoon or something... -.-] does matter, but don't stick with the standards.
Yearbooks that have just black writing is so boring. Make the yearbook a freaking rainbow!
Just don't use colors that will burn their eyes, kay y'all?
Tip #6: Cool signatures!
Sign your name in a cool way! Go from:
Tip #6: Just, no.
Why is yah name taking up the whole page? That is a big no-no. You can write big, but be mindful! Other people need to sign too!
Tip #7: DOODLE.
This one chick signed her name, and drew a unicorn. A UNICORN! It even had a rainbow and everything!
Draw little doodles! It will make your little blurb message thang stand out, and I'm pretty sure whoever's yearbook you're signing will love it. :]
Tip #8: So. Just be different.
In all seriousness, just don't be the same, run-of-the-mill yearbook signer. Be the awesome yearbook signer that everybody runs to.
[You know you want to be that person. Don't deny it makes you feel fabulous!]
