5 Struggles of an Awkward Girl

If you are anything like me, graceful isn’t a word anyone would EVER use to describe you. You may be an awkward girl if you daily go through anything on this list…1.     You stare a lot.

Discrete is definitely not your specialty. If something is in your line of sight you’re going to stare. This is one of the many reasons you’ve creeped out so most of your crushes. It’s not like you mean to stare, it’s just because…

2.     You don’t know what to say.

Conversations usually don’t start because you can’t remember how to use words. When you do speak, it usually results in a string of letters that can’t be found in a dictionary. At least you have a knack for creating new words, right?3.     You spill and/or drop something at least once a day.

You have fingers and hands; you just regularly forget how to use them. I remember during the first week of school, I was casually  writing notes and some how drew a line down my neighbour’s arm. Woops, I apparently thought your skin was paper. Sorry about that bud.4.     You take interesting photos.

Most people have control of what’s going on with their face. You, however, find yourself wide-eyed, blinking or half smiling in almost every single picture.5.     You blurt things out.

People often think that you don’t have a filter because you’ll say the most random things at the wrong time. A first date is probably not the best time to mention your sixth toe…
