I have perfected the art of being awkward. I don’t know why I can’t be cool Jessica, who always says the right thing, who doesn’t always do things that make everyone around her uncomfortable… but I just can’t. Ask anyone who knows me: I am an awkward person – and I’ve finally learned to be fine with it.
But being awkward is… well, awkward. The positives? It makes life interesting and hilarious almost all the time. I have a lot of embarrassing stories that bring much amusement to my friends and family. The negatives? I almost always look like total doof.

Every time I try to dance at a party, I look like this:
When I say something weird to a stranger and they look at me like this:
And then I’m just like, “Um, okay, bye!”
When my crush compliments me and I’m so happy I don’t know what to do, this is usually how I react:
When I’m on a really bad date, it’s like:
Or maybe it’s like this:
That time I walked into the wrong house (again, don’t ask), it was like:
When I try to drink and look happy at the same time I look like this:
My response to basically anything I do:
And everyone else is like:
