the awkward moment when...

hey ya'll! sorry this is being posted on friday instead of thursday. i had it all ready, but never got the chance to post it.

....when you can tell people recognize you because you work at the library, but don't acknowledge you. this just leaves us with awkward eye contact....MY FAVORITE.

....when the sun is so bright that you can't tell what color the traffic light is. this left me with the decision of "just keep driving and hope for the best." yes i know...that's bad.

....when you over hear a history teacher talking about sometime when everyone was "hooking up and getting pregnant"and my response "......."

....when you are looking outside and you see someone trying to be cool and dribble a basket ball. he then ended up completely dropping the ball entirely. then he proceeded to chase after it. hahahahahahaha ON HIM.

....when you're unraveling headphones and you practically whip your self in the process. may i repeat that, my intelligence never ceases to fail me?

....when someone gets completely irritated because they printed out the wrong thing, and they still have to pay. then when informed this gentleman that even though he messed it up somehow, he still had to pay and then just threw his coins at me.....not really, but he wasn't a happy camper.

....when you're posting a facebook status about said incident and it turns out that you put it as someones wall post instead

....when you think someone is coming to the desk to ask you something but it turns out they just left their water bottle there. and he tried to smoothly pull off the fact that he left something. i guess maybe more awkward for him then me, seeing that i giggled inside.

....when you sneeze and it echos throughout THE ENTIRE LIBRARY. and the silence afterward is haunting.

....when you trip and almost die over the CPU on your computer while trying to check something out to someone.

....when you catch yourself putting a book in the recycle bin. *sigh*

....when your art history teacher tells you about a piece of art and then proceeds to show an animated version of this painting. really??? REALLY. watching an animated version of the piece isn't going to change my feelings about it. and who in their right mind would even WANT to make an animated version of A PAINTING?

....when your studying in the library and the person behind you sounds like a grizzly bear every five minutes or so because he is stretching.

....when you're class mate is talking, rather loudly in the library about...*cough*...female things.

guest post: drama llama

hi friends. hope your tuesday is going well.....mine has been, well........interesting. but you'll here about that on thursday. :)

anyway, one of my best friends, Alyse (you can check her blog out here)

she begged and begged and begged to do a guest post. (not really. i'm a softy. kinda. besides, i need to put more up here then just once or twice a week.)

she is hilarious. we have such a good time together and so i'm super excited to have her posting on my blog. enjoy!!!


This is a drama llama:

The drama llama was thought to be nearly extinct, but recent events have proven initial theories wrong.

This rare beast is drawn to conversations and interactions in which there is sure to be drama.
When drama erupts, the llama raises its head, enjoying the confusion and turmoil.

However, it usually has a calming, if not absurd effect on those gathered.

The drama llama’s appearance is quite awkward and out of the 1,453,689 times it was tested with live human subjects, only 6 times did it not yield laughter. (For the record, those tests were conducted with the blind – who could not see the drama llama emerging – and the mute – who, well, could not laugh at it. But they sure did make some strange gestures in sign language.)

Where the drama llama originates from is still shrouded in complete mystery.

Researchers never actually released a drama llama into the room along with the participants, but nevertheless, the drama llama did appear. However, when it did appear, the closest participant was suddenly missing an arm. Researchers were horrified (but glad everyone had signed waivers). They discovered, though, that when the drama llama left, the person’s arm was there again.

If anyone has any insight as to how this may have occurred, please contact your local ‘drama queen’ to test your theory before reporting your findings to 1-800-XXX-XXXX. (If you see numbers instead of X’s, you are indeed special skilled enough to call the number you see.)

the awkward moment when.....

....when someone in you proximity, has yet another bad case of the Monday mornings. now i hate mondays JUST AS MUCH as the next person, but i don't begin my mondays fussing about something that has happened over the weekend. this is getting RIDICULOUS. this has been going on for two or three weeks IN A ROW. same person. holy crap..........

....(monday november 7) when you're writing a paper arguing against euthanasia, which is suppose to be five pages, double spaced, and all you can regurgitate only about three double spaced pages worth.........WHY MUST THIS BE SO HARD. and the kicker is that i have put in everything i wanted to argue (which was a lot) and it still didn't come out to five pages......growl.

....when someone says hi to you, and apparently you cannot speak that day. my "hi" came out a cross between a "hi" and a "hello", making it a 'haullll" of so
me sort. good gracious. i swear my intelligence amazes me to no end.
high five in the face for me please!

....when someone is riding your tail, and you proceed to LOOK INTO THE REAR VIEW MIRROR AT THEM and yell. the awkward part is the fact that they slow down as soon as you do this, making you think that they actually heard you......

....when you're pumping gas into your truck and you hear the music over the speakers, suddenly begin to skip. that's classy, playing a scratched cd over the sound system. and i thought gas stations generally just played the radio......

....when you're reaching for the door handle and it is farther away then you anticipated. i then proceeded to claw at the air and nearly fall over just because of MOMENTARY LAPS IN JUDGEMENT.

....when you see someone that you have met a couple times, so you say "hi! how are you?" then they say "good" and look at you like they have no idea who you are. COME ON. you do too know who i am, DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T. poop face.

....when the drive thru lady goes to hand you your order, and she DROPS IT OUT THE WINDOW. granted, it WAS and accident. but she then proceeded to dangle herself out the window to see if she could grab it. thanks but no thanks, i would rather awkwardly get out my car to grab it rather then you falling out of the drive thru window ON YOUR HEAD.

....when you see someone having a genuine rock out session in their car, and you laugh at them. then you realize that you do THE EXACT SAME THING

....when your teacher pulls and random and unnecessary crude joke in your class. REALLY? come on.........

....when you're walking to class and you see someone running with their arms extended but bent at their elbows. juuuuuusst picture it...........


i was told yesterday that i have a beautiful smile! my day was made, especially considering that my smile made someone else's day. thank you friend for the kind words!!

and with that, i'll leave you with a smile.

have a beautiful day!

why pens are so important...

i saw this on facebook but i'm going to elaborate a smidgen.....


in life, a simple pen makes ALL the difference, especially when your a student. if you loose your pen then...well, you have no pen. that's obvious. for a student, THIS IS BAD. VERY BAD. if you have no pen, you have nothing to take notes with, because of course, we college students no longer resort to mere pencils.
without the ability to take notes, you will have nothing to study when quiz or exam time comes around. once again, VERY BAD. so with nothing to study, you inevitably fail, unless you were blessed with a photographic mind. if you're one of THOSE people, then this isn't for you.

let's recap: lost pen. no pen. can't take notes for lack of pen, therefore you fail your classes.

for us with no photographic mind WHATSOEVER, we fail with out a pen, meaning, there is no diploma for the future. if you have no diploma, there is a VERY HIGH chance that you will not be able to get a job. no work means no money. THAT'S ALSO VERY BAD.

if you have no money, you will have no food. and with your lack of food, you will be super hungry and get super skinny. and being super skinny will make you ugly. JUST SAYIN.

being ugly (according to the crap world that we live in) means you will not find a lover. that stinks, doesn't it? if you have no lover who then will you marry? NO ONE. this also means that you will never produce offspring. and if you have no children, you're left alone. being alone all the time is a cause of depression.

because of this depression that your doctor will diagnose you with, you will not take very good care of yourself, leaving you prone to illness. you'll get sick, then die.

so what is the moral of this story? if you loose your pen, you'll die.


hold on to your pens. they just might save your life.

the awkward moment when.....

most of these happened on a monday. probably about half. WHY DO THESE ALWAYS HAPPEN ON A MONDAY?

....your at walmart, and APPARENTLY your pay check has gone through juuuuuuuust yet. and i was at a u-scan. which decided to share the news that i was broke with EVERYONE AT WALMART. those things are so annoying, aren't they? i feel lucky when i find one with the sound TURNED OFF. that's rare.

....when your pulling your heavy bag up off the floor and make a grunting noise because it is so heavy. a quiet-ish grunt, but A GRUNT IS A GRUNT. right as i made this noise, an attractive guy comes around the corner. RIGHT AS I GRUNT. no sir, i am not a pig, MY BIG IS SUPER HEAVY.

....when said attractive guy goes to the water fountain AT LEAST five times during is tie in the library. (disclaimer: the water fountain is past the circulation desk where i work, so i ALWAYS see who comes and goes to the water fountain.) we will call him "mr attractive" for security purposes. SERIOUSLY mr attractive. have you NOT HEARD of a water bottle??? although, later on, THAT SAME DAY, he came back up to the water fountain with a cup. i was having a proud moment for someone i didn't know. i am so weird sometimes.

....freaking out THIS SAME GUY (mr. attractive) when checking out head phones to him. first, because i was at the computer, HE DIDN'T EVEN LET ME KNOW HE WAS THERE. so immediately i felt horrible for not seeing someone was standing there. he just needed a pair of head phones. so second, i check out a pair of headphones to him, but right as i'm handing them i realize that they didn't scan properly. IN MID REACH, i snatch the head phones out of his grasp saying "oh dang it, it didn't scan properly" kinda of loud, i guess. so once i scan the pair of head phones properly, i hand them back saying apologizing. HE JUST STARES AT ME. then he HESITATES to take them back. he takes them and i apologize again. AND HE SAYS NOTHING. making this so much more awkward then it already was. THANK YOU SO MUCH. jeeez..........

....someone in your general proximity has a VERY BAD CASE of monday mornings. and they are VERY audible. lovely. way to make mondays even better. YOU ARE SO HELPFUL.

....when, on Halloween mind you, your friend walks in the library wearing devil horns. then a coworker proceeds to say "oh that little devil is Caroline's friend" think about it. HOW DOES THAT SOUND? i personally thought it was hilarious. :)

....when you stick your hands in the new, fancy schmancy, hand dryer in the bathroom, and it sounds like a CHAINSAW about to SAW YOUR HANDS OFF. who would even WANT to use that? it scared the living daylights outta me, i'll tell you that.

....when you sneeze and your eye twitches almost immediately after. strange feeling, that is.

....when someone walks by and smiles. that's not awkward, except for the fact that he had FLOSS STILL HANGING FROM HIS MOUTH.

....when your walking to class and you see someone sitting on a bench. so how is that awkward, you ask? well, instead of one pair of legs, i see two sitting in the same spot, meaning that someone is sitting in another person's lap. the awkward part is that i realized i had been STARING AT THEM THE ENTIRE TIME i was processing the seating situation. *queue pulling out phone and playing with it so you look busy.....

....when you find out that screaming that you heard in the bathroom last week (you can find that awkward moment here) REALLY. DID. HAPPEN. and that you weren't just imagining it, but now you wish you did. AND THAT'S ALL I'M GONNA SAY ABOUT THAT.

....when your looking at your DISPOSABLE starbucks cup, and it says DO NOT MICROWAVE. what? am i gonna die from microwaving it? i ALWAYS microwave my coffee in that cup when it gets cold. POOP.

....when your walking in the library and someone notices you and looks at you as if they are saying "why are you looking over my shoulder?" when in fact, you ARE NOT LOOKING OVER THEIR SHOULDER. are you doing something you shouldn't be? why do you look so guilty?

....when someone checks out a book entitled "the tequila worm". and it's from the CHILDREN'S SECTION. need i say more.

....when someone comes up to the gamecock bobble head at your desk (yeah that's right CLEMSON fans. A GAMECOCK BOBBLE HEAD. be jealous.) and makes it's head bobble. the just stands there STARING AT IT. creepy much?

....when you can't burp. not WON'T burp, CAN'T. trust me. i would LOVE TO BE ABLE TO BURP, like a normal person. but, except for something SUPER QUIET and rare, i can't do it. AT ALL. and it is uncomfortable. it really is. so instead i hiccup, or just have this massive amount of burp air that i can't push up without making my self vomit. tis a sad life i lead.

....when you look at the mole on your finger at a certain angle and learn that it looks like a pregnant lady's belly button. with hair. delightful, no?

....when your driving fast in the slow lane and some mini van from Connecticut passes you. and the drives is like 100 years old.

....when you get a sweet tea from bojangles and learn that their tea ISN'T AS AWESOME has i had been told. not that i won't drink it,because i am a firm believer in sweet tea. it's just not near as amazing as Micky D's or subway's. OH YEAH. I WENT THERE. WHAT NOW?

....when you talk to yourself in the car as if there is someone else in there with you. and then you answer your self. *facepalm*
