Few vehicles can express emotion—especially on the internet—as succinctly and efficiently as a good GIF. Wouldn’t you agree? Words just don’t always do, and when they don’t, there’s always a quick little animated snippet of Beyonce being fierce whilst ten wind machines blow her glorious hair around, and there you have it: The feeling you get when you score the last pair of Jimmy Choos you’ve had your eye on for nearly a year at half off—the last ones in your size.

And so, we very much enjoyed this post over on HuffPo today, illustrating the 26 steps and emotions of the first few weeks of being engaged through 26 carefully selected GIFs. So fun.

What do you think? Did they miss a step?
