It’s been wayyy too long since I’ve done an A&A! Trust me, it’s not from lack of content. I usually keep little notes in my phone of all the awkwardly awesome things that happen in my life and my list is quite long so I’ve just chosen some of my favorites to get me back into the A&A swing of things.
-A little while back I was home and had some free time so I decided to see what movies were OnDemand. To my delight, I saw that One Day was available. Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess. Win-win. And it was. Right up until the end, when that movie decided to take one little twist and rip my heart right out. I cried, sobbed rather; the mascara ran, the tissues were brought in, it was not pretty. And now the sight of either of them just makes my heart melt.
-In the excruciating process of changing my name I had to visit the wonderful place that is the Social Security Office. It was pretty dreadful. I was sitting next to another young lady who was most likely the only other person in the room who spoke the same language as me. She was there changing her name as well, this casually came up in the “Do I have the right form?” conversation that took place between us. Trying to be all nice and cheerful I asked her when she got married… this is when I learned that not everyone is living life in newlywed bliss, some people are bitter divorcees. “I’m getting divorced…”.. accompany that with a look that partnered disgust with total and complete disdain, and the tone, ohh the tone, that’s where you have the end of our conversation. And me, sitting there, with my foot in my mouth, and another hour of waiting. The next day at the DMV I thought it best to bury myself into my phone and focus on pinning.
-Baking makes me really happy. This week oatmeal chocolate chip cookies did the trick.
-I recently was driving around and found myself behind an old station wagon. I shared a little giggle with myself thinking about how badly I used to want my family to have one of these, for one very specific reason, the back seats that turn around to face backwards. When I was little there was pretty much nothing as cool as that turned around back seat. I always imagined those lucky kids felt like they were tucked away in the back of the car in their own trendy little club. I haven’t seen one of these backseats in quite some time but I’m sure they are still pretty awesome.
-I have discovered a serious perk of little-apartment living. I can plug our vacuum into one outlet and it manages to reach every last corner of our apartment. I am very serious. This is slightly sad, partially pathetic and all the way awesome. I kind of really hate to vacuum, but this is mostly just because I can’t stand having to go back and forth pulling the plug out (although seriously, I usually end up just pulling the vacuum too far away and unplug it as I scoot down the hallway). Now, lil’ apartment has proven that sometimes small is better, or at least a bit more convenient.
-Today equals one month of marriage for me and my mister. I still like him, so I figure that’s good :]
What’s been awkward and awesome in your life lately?
