awkward & awesome


- Grandpa drivers. I'm just saying. It's hard to be nice + get where I'm going all at the same time.
- When someone tells you a story that they think is hilarious but really it just makes you feel awkward and so you don't say anything but try to laugh back and then the situation just gets more awkward.
- That moment when your paths cross on the sidewalk and neither one of you can decide which way to go and so you end up kind of dancing and glancing at the ground.
- We ran into a guy we graduated with and he asked if we were living together. We said, "oh, did you know we got married?" He said, "yes." We didn't really know how to respond.
- Walking behind a slow walker on the sidewalk when you're trying to book it to class. I kind of act like I'm a car and kick it in high gear to pass them. Sometimes I even make the "vroom" noise in my head. Just in my head. Not out loud, because that would be awkward. Oh, wait.

- The super ambitious attitude I get at about 11:30pm. Not really efficient, but ambitious nonetheless.
- Wednesday morning classes that allow me to sleep in slightly later than other days.
- The J.Crew magazine I got this week. A girl can dream.
- A girl I work with saying she liked my outfit today and that she wishes she could just take a picture of my clothes everyday. She doesn't know about this blog. Clearly.
- Warm-ish weather. It's inspiring. And hopeful.
- Hubby is getting me a flip cam (!) because...
- Tomorrow is my birthday. The big double two.


  1. Happy early birthday! Oh, to be 22 again. :)

    That's really weird that the guy asked you if you were living together...since when do married couples live apart?


  2. happy happy early birthday!!! and don't worry about the vroom noise- i make it too... and i always like edge to the center of the lane to check and make sure i won't hit anybody win i kick it in high gear to pass... i mean it's clearly just like driving a car lol

    and about those awkward stories, i've told some of those and it's just as awkward for them as it is for you lol, especially when you know your story is crashing to the ground... in flames... with a loud explosion haha :)

  5. haha well that's okay. everybody needs an awkward situation every once in a while. :)

  6. Haha, you're right, it's just like driving a car. I even stay to the right side of the sidewalk as if it were a lane. I'm glad someone else does it too.  And yeah, those crash and burn stories get ya.

  7. Yeah! That's exactly what we were thinking! I think he realized what a weird question that was after our response like "Yeeeeah?" haha
