A Series of Awkward Events

My life is a series of awkward events.

Every day something new and strange happens to me. When I tell these stories to people, most think I’m making it up or, at best, embellishing. The truth is: I’m not. I don’t need to embellish because the weird shit that happens to me is so weird if I embellished, I’d probably end up in an institution.

That being said, I’m making this page to tell the stories of some of the strange occurrences in my life, and maybe, just maybe, make a few people laugh.

So here goes nothing.

Another day, another dollar…oh wait I’m broke

Hey, guys!

I’m writing this from my bed with a mug of wonderful tea beside me. I consider this a huge accomplishment. No, not because I managed to walk across my dorm and not spill hot tea on myself, but because it is 12:13 am, and I’m actually showered and laying in bed RELAXING. This is so rare for me that I can’t remember the last time it happened.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m an editor for my campus newspaper. That means on Wednesday nightsaffectionately referred to as BV Wednesdays by the editorial staffwe spend the night (starting at 7pm) in the newsroom editing, doing layout, formatting pictures, etc. It’s a lot of fun most of the time, but some nights we just run ridiculously late, and I have an 8:30 am class…so I don’t like being there past midnight—especially when I have to go back to my dorm and shower and do stuff.

However, not only did we finish both pages of edits (from the Managing Editor Nate and the Editor-in-Chief Kevin), but I was back in my dorm by 11:30. Finishing both pages of edits means that I won’t have to go down and spend hours in the newsroom tomorrow like I normally do. HALLELUJAH. Another great thing about tomorrow? My 8:30 am and my 2:30 pm classes are cancelled! Now, those are my two favorite classes…but this means I only have one class tomorrow, I don’t have to go down to the newsroom, and life is just good.

So I’m celebrating by relaxing for the first time in God knows how long.

This is nice.

A day in the life.

Life

So I’ve decided that I want to start blogging about my life more. Where better to do that than my creative writing and fun stuff blog? I’ll still be posting poetry, photography, ect., but I’m just adding in my personal life updates, so if anyone cares, they can get to know me a little bit more!

Basically, get ready for the shit storm that is my life.
