Bloganuary: Jan. 12, 2022

For the month of January, I’m participating in Bloganuary, a daily blogging challenge.

Today’s prompt:

What emoji(s) do you like to use?

Goodness! I don’t think it’s possible document all the emojis I enjoy using. But, I’m going to try.


Sometimes, I feel like I use this as a period at the end of sentences. I intend it as a gentle, kind way to finish a statement. This is definitely my most-used emoji.


I have correctly set expectations with those whom I have text conversations that jokes and puns are commonplace. For all the hilarious texts sent and received, the ROFL emoji is a typical accompaniment.


I have adopted this emoji as representative as giving a hug. I love hugs, so this particular emoji is very well-used. And furthermore, the fact that it looks like I’m giving jazz hands, makes me giggle every time I send this to a loved one.


This one’s relatively self-explanatory. Rainbows are simply incredible!


Oh, the growing heart. I use this when I get that warm feeling of gratitude towards someone. It’s my way of showing my appreciation, as well as my love.

In addition to these, I have a plethora of favorites at work. At the time of writing, my company’s Slack instance has a whopping 22281 custom emojis. I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of all the modern hieroglyphics at my disposal, but I feel quite confident I’d be able to have a full conversation with my colleagues, using nothing but emojis.

Suffice it to say, I enjoy my emoji usage. Even when I’m having a conversation with someone in person, my face will automatically assume the expression represented in an emoji. I love it!

Jazz hands, friends 💗
