This week, Jersey Shore’s Snooki was announced to ring in the New Year when she drops from the ball in Times Square, while the DREAM Act was deferred. However, the reality of your Six-Word Memoirs could not be ignored. Here are six six-worders we love from the week ending December 10. Click on each author’s name to check out more memoirs.

Most Seasonal : “I saw Santa kissing Uncle Dave.” —MissLoriJ
Most Modernly Meta: “He friended me. That’s progress, right?” —Staring Longingly, from SMITHTeens
Most Literary: “More books than lifetime hours remaining.” —SmartCookie
Biggest Oops: “Broke rule. Kissed coworker. Big mistake.”—Lost In Translation
Most Self-Aware: “Smart, sexy, a pinch of crazy.” —Girlgirl
Most Prophetic: “They called me emo. I cried.” —Nicolaaaa (profile image, above), from our new six-word project, Six Words on Pain & Hope, with the nonprofit, To Write Love on Her Arms.
