Good news, y’all! More emojis are coming to our fingertips soon! Before you know it, we’ll have enough emojis to eliminate words altogether. There are so many great emojis, but there are notably a lot of things missing from our fancy emoticon library. We’re especially missing diverse emojis, which is a huge problem. Apple announced back in March that they pledged to introduce more diverse emojis in the future.
Unfortunately, the new list of emojis released from Unicode (that’s what language emojis are) doesn’t really address the diversity issue. That said, there aren’t photos of the new emojis so we actually don’t know what the new ones will look like. There are several like “Black Down Pointing Backhand” that could hint at more diverse emoji options.
I use a lot of emojis to communicate, but there are some emotions and situations that are hard to express. I’ve come up with a few emojis we REALLY could use in our lives:
Cramps, Bring Chocolate
We actually could use an entire range of period emojis ranging from "PMS-Do Not Disturb" to "Sobbing Over A Puppy Picture." But a lil emoji of a girl holding her abdomen would be great for a lot of situations.
The surprised/embarrassed emoji doesn't cut it when it comes to your parents humiliating you in public.
BRB Stalking My Ex
There are no emojis to express stalking your ex online. None! What is that about?
Don't Bug Me, I'm Reading A New Book
The book emojis are useless when it comes to telling someone how much you need them to leave you alone when you're reading a new book. We need an emoji of a sleep-deprived person facedown in a novel for this.
My Heels Hurt My Feet
This is a very specific pain that deserves its own specific emoji.
Don't talk to me until I've had caffeine, kthanksbye.
Stubbed your toe on your dresser? Got a blister? Hit your funny bone? THERE IS NO EMOJI.
My Hair Is Wet Because I Didn't Have Time To Dry It
I'm thinking a little version of the girl from The Ring, no?
The clock emojis are dumb, and the running guy doesn't say "I'm sorry I'm late, don't hate me!"
There are praying hands. There are fists. There are peace signs. There are not two hands to signify a high five.
