awkward & awesome thursday!

8 Sep


  • Guy at work: “Here, I have a present for you!” *hands me papers* Me: “Thanks, but I like flowers better” Guy: “I bet you like straight men better, too”
  • Texting someone saying something completely serious and getting “lol” in their reply.
  • Karla: “Sarah, I need your help” Sarah M: “I sure hope you mean the other Sarah”
  • Remember shower guy from a previous A&A Thursday? He hit on me. He was really awkward about the whole thing and what makes it worse is that he lives in the apartment next to mine.
  • Crying in Meijer. It had been a long day and I was missing my mom a lot. The crying in public wasn’t what was the awkward part (I’ve done that a lot in the past year), but it was the old couple that walked by and said “Oh honey, don’t you worry, he wasn’t worth your time anyway” Oh gosh. This is the point where I can never decide if I should tell them why I’m really crying or just move on. Thankfully this couple just moved on with their shopping and left, but seriously, can’t a girl cry in the middle of a store without everyone assuming it’s about a guy? Guess not.
  • Do you like my attempt to take a panoramic picture [above]? It didn’t work out as planned (but I like it anyway).


  • My eyelashes. I don’t know how to say this without it sounding like I’m bragging, but I have really great eyelashes. Over the past week I’ve had approx. 8 strangers and 2 friends tell me how great they are. Thanks, everyone!
  • Girls weekend!
  • Texting my dad “I just had butter pecan ice cream and it made me think of you!” and getting his reply “If butter pecan ice cream becomes my legacy i will be okay with that” I would just like to say right now that I have the best dad ever.
  • One of my favorite parts about going away for a bit is coming home. At first it’s so great to see the skyline and then to be driving along Lake Shore Drive, then pulling onto my street and then walking into my apartment where my own bed and shower and things are.
  • Friends buying me a Cafe Mocha from Starbucks when they know I’m going to be super super tired.
  • Leaving love notes for Danielle to find when she got to work on Wednesday. I love her and am going to miss seeing her beautiful face everyday.
  • Finally getting a chance to drink the wine that Sarah and Craig brought from Ohio and then spending the rest of that evening listening to Disney songs with a friend. (My specialty of the night was Mulan’s “I’ll Make a Man Out of You“)
  • This week I got to proctor an exam. I felt like hot stuff! “No, you may not use your cell phone as a calculator” “Yes, you may go to the bathroom, but you cannot take your pencil with you” “It is 12:15, you have 15 minutes left” Yeah, I got to say all that. It also wasn’t the worst thing that I got to read UsWeekly and other gossip magazines for 3.5 hours.
  • While writing this post I learned how to make font really, really huuuuugeeee! 🙂
