The Awkward Chronicles #14: the eight phases of crying

Alternative title: Once again, this is why I don't talk to people.  TL:DR - That Guy possibly has a girlfriend. People gossip too much. I cried because of period stuff. The end.  The funny thing about social anxiety is that even on the good days, you still have moments where you're like EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT … Continue reading The Awkward Chronicles #14: the eight phases of crying


The Awkward Chronicles #9

The Awkward Chronicles are part of the year of snark unfortunately. It wouldn't be me if there wasn't some awkward shit happening on daily basis. 30th December 2017 Did I pass the friend test?

Excuse me, miss 

I've already blogged about an incident that occurred between me and a friend of mine. She apologised and I reluctantly accepted. And that's it. Except, no, it isn't. If I have to force an apology from someone then it's not okay. And like I said in the linked post, I could buy that the initial … Continue reading Excuse me, miss 

Forgiveness is kind of strange.

Forgiveness is strange. We either vow to forgive somebody someday or we forgive quietly without even realising. I reached out to a former friend this week to say something that I needed to.
