I, like most terrible people, use emojis all the time. I’ve used them sarcastically so much that I now find myself using them in everyday text conversations. I’ve become a real monster. While emojis are easy, some of us are purists in the text game and prefer good old fashioned emoticons. For those of you who aren’t ashamed of your life and don’t know the difference, let me explain through my sadness. An emoji is a tiny little picture you choose from a list, while an emoticon is a series of letters, numbers, or symbols that look like this :) ;)
To help you stay on top of the emoticon world, I came up with some new ones you can use on your friends. Some of them are for very specific situations so they’ll either be very impressed or extremely creeped out with your readiness.
