The Awkward Files
Socially awkward? Introverted? Shy?
Why, yes I am, thanks for asking: and this page is where I share some of my most awkward stories with you, in the hope that at least some of you will be able to relate to them. Before I get started, though, I need you to understand that these are probably not the kind of stories you’re used to – you know, the big, dramatic ones, with plot twists and character arcs, and that kind of thing. Instead, these are simply just the stories of ordinary events and everyday awkwardness; the bad haircuts, disrupted days out, and other random acts of stupidity that still make you jerk awake 20 years later, cringing with embarrassment at the very memory of them.
If you’ve ever felt that life would be easier if you could just be a little bit more like everyone else, then, this blog is here to reassure you that you’re fine just the way you are. So embrace abnormality. Own your awkwardness. And, above all, know that it’s not just you: actually, as it turns out, it’s mostly ME, apparently. I have never intentionally gone looking for awkward situations, but somehow they always seem to find me, and I’m telling my stories because I know there are some people out there who are like that too: the outsiders, the over-thinkers, the socially awkward.
These stories are for you: because I do the awkward things so you don’t have to. Then I write about them…
