Awkward and Awesome

Photobucket Photobucket Awkward:

-During art class this week, there was a particularly mischievous 6 year old who I kept needing to reprimand. I must have said his name Kaiyo about a dozen times only to find out when I asked him how to spell it that it was K-y-l-e. Opps. And now I believe there's a child across the room who needs my assistance!
-Eating a blueberry scone and then spicy lemongrass-flavored noodles for lunch all at once. Surprisingly, I didn't have tummy problems later. This is my life.
-Playing with clay, washing my hands, and then smelling my hands and thinking, "this does not smell like clay or soap...!"
-Continually to sniffing my hands to remind myself how weird they smell.
-All the times this week I pretended staring at my phone when waiting to be picked up. Honestly, I had no idea which buttons I was even clicking. I just don't like making eye contact sometimes, people, okay?


-Getting the long-awaited acceptance letter from NMSU yesterday. I just may be studying journalism there this fall! And I am beyond excited. I'm nervous, struck, and floating.
-Meeting the most adorable, innocent six year old girl ever. Her voice, that toothless smile, and those eyes.
-Eating fresh blueberries constantly.
-Wearing my new glasses out everywhere. I don't know if I'll ever go back to contacts
-My alarm clock suddenly stopped working, so I finally have a viable excuse for not waking up as early as I ought. Not that I want to sleep in late or anything, it's just that under the circumstances, I have no options.

My first time doing an awkward and awesome post. More will probably come in the future, when I actually document all the embarrassingly awkward things that happen to me in daily life. This should be fun!

Oh, and thank you, thank you for all of the amazing comments you all left on my last post. I read every single one and loved your feedback.
