"well, this is awkward."
(illustration by: me.)
Unless you're some supreme conversationalist (and props to you, I perspire slight envy towards you), I think it's safe to say that most people find themselves in awkward situations/ conversations. Usually with people that are different from you, just because you don't think that you have any common ground to cover (totally disagree, but that's a WHOLE other post). Take high school: the "cool" kids rarely talk to the "dorky" kids and vice versa. And when they do, there's some sort of emphasized awkwardness between the two groups. Almost as if to emphasize that BAM, we are so, like, not related, like, duhhh.
I don't really identify myself with either of these groups, preferring to sit in the centre of the spectrum. But you know, I spy on my classmates. (But not actually. Stop thinking your thoughts, IM NOT A CREEP.)
BUT, I recently heard on the radio that the "weird kids" in high school turn out to be the most interesting people as adults because they ACTUALLY HAVE THINGS TO SAY AND OPINIONS TO SPEAK. I can totally see it.
TELL ME A STORY. A story of the most interesting person you can think of. Come back and tell me. I really want to know.
(p.s. if you don't want to tell me... then just scroll down and comment on my clothes or whatever.......... I didn't mean that in a mean way. Hah. Two 'means' in one sentence.)
