*Insert New Emoji Candidates Here*

Friends and fellow I-put-an-emoji-after-every-sentence-er’s of the world, a new dawn is upon us. One involving new emojis! The Unicode Technical Committee revealed that it’s reviewing a list of 79 new emoji candidate’s. Which emojis will make the cut?

If I were a member of the committee, these would be some of my personal choices. Being that I’m the queen of emojis, it’s safe to say my opinion is the only one that really matters. * insert sassy emoji *    * insert crown emoji*

The Drooling Face EmojiScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 10.40.35 AM

Because we need an emoji to describe the Beckham’s, the Gosling’s, the Hemswerth’s and the DiCaprio’s of the world. The fact that this isn’t already an emoji is actually really upsetting. What have we been doing all our lives? Also, this might finally retire the “omg you are perf *heart eye emoji*” comments that we write on all our besties photos. Just throw in the drooling emoji and they will know that they are killin’ it.

The Face Palm EmojiScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 10.49.14 AM

For when we are having one of those days, where we spill coffee all over our white blouse, or when we show up to a meeting that is next week, or when we call our significant other our ex’s name. Face palm emoji.

Now we can all do the Kanye Shrug and stop using this, ¯\_(?)_/¯. That is so 2005. “Why didn’t you text me back?” * shrug emoji * “Where do you want to go eat?” * shrug emoji * Pretty much the indecisive girls best friend.

A SHARK EMOJI! FINALLLLLY! It’s about time! For all the stupid animals emojis we have (i.e 3 different goats, a puffer fish, and an ant), we might now have a useful one. With this addition, Shark Week is about to get even better!

The Avocado Emoji Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 11.10.08 AM

Although this might make all the #EatClean and #FitFam people WAY more obnoxious, it is still super fun. Given the avocado’s trendy rep, this one better make the cut.  Avocados are pretty much the new ketchup. Betches put avocado on everything.

The Pancakes Emoji Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 11.11.20 AM

Leslie Knope is sooo excited about this one. Now, IHOP and other pancake establishments can step up their social media games. Also, brunch photos and snaps are about to be the best ever.

The Cartwheel Emoji Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 11.19.12 AM

Not all of us can do cartwheels, but this can be used to portray excitement! I just got my dream job! * cartwheel emoji * Kylie Jenner retweeted me! * cartwheel emoji * When that soul sucking boy leaves you alone forever! * cartwheel emoji * The possibilities are endless.
