So I’d say I’ve had my fair share of awkward situations for someone who only goes out 3 times a month. *cough* Well I mean some of these were over the internet but yeah they definitely still count as awkward…
1. AWKWARD SITCHIATION NUMBAH UNO, A.K.A. I’m having an anxiety attack because I couldn’t get my fucking backpack
Last week when I was at me frens house I wanted to get something out of my backpack, which was in the other room, so I went “Hey, I’ll be back in a sec, I wanna show you something.” So I went out into the hallway and almost got to the other room, but their great grandma was just sitting in the middle of the hallway in her wheelchair, blocking the doorway.
She was inching slowly towards the room I just came out of, and she refused to let anyone help her (Not that I would’ve been able to help much, since I was standing in front of her and would’ve had to climb over her to reach the handles).
So I was essentially trapped, with my only option being go back without my backpack and wait 10 or so minutes for granny to get out of the hall. I know it sounds simple but it was extremely stressful, okay! I edged my way awkwardly back into the room and plopped myself down inconspiculously.
So yeah it ended fine but my damned social anxiety blew it way out of proportion so I was basically cowering in fear for like 15 seconds cause I was scared someone would notice I didn’t actually bring anything back and would ask what it was I wanted to show them. Logical, I know.
2. AWKWARD MOMENT NUMBER DUI, A.K.A. Crap they saw my sketchpad I have no friends anymore
Happened on the same day as the first one ^
My friends asked to look through one of my drawing pads
It was extremely stressful okay you have no idea what it’s like unless you’re an artist. I literally ripped out a few drawings first cause hell naw I ain’t lettin’ anyone see my 3 AM couldn’t-sleep-drunk-on-sleep-deprivation-don’t-have-an-eraser-deserves-to-be-burned-in-fire anatomy sketches.
Of course they still saw this dumb comic I made that probably made them think I was a fucking weirdo but we’ll get to that another day. Or never.
3. AWKWARD THING NUMBAR TRI, A.K.A. How the hell am I suppose to interpret this
SO my friend and I were textng yesterday and I jokingly went “lol is it weird we talk more on here than in real life?”
and she replied “yes it is”
LIKE WHY DUDE
NO “lol” AFTEWARDS OR ANYTHING
HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO REPLY TO THAT
SHE HATES ME NOW DOESN’T SHE
I BET SHE DOESN’T REALLY THINK WE’RE FRIENDS HHHHHHHH I’M FUCKING SPIRALING HELP ME
I just replied with a thumbs up emoji. I totally handled it well. I need cookies and hugs now.
Yeh I got over it afterwards lol anxiety fucking sucks tho
Just to be clear I’m pretty sure none of those were actually that bad, but at the times of them happening, I felt really panicked and awkward and kind of wanted to curl up into a ball and hide in my hoodie. Unfortunately my hoodie was sitting in the clothes basket all the way on the other side of my room so I had to make due without. I’m so brave.
Also I relate to this meme on a spiritual level
I’ve even go the same face and everything. My self image is very healthy lol
Anyway, hasta la pasta my dudes
