Awkward and Awesome Thursday

So Sydney over at The Daybook does this weekly awkward & awesome post and since I basically want to be her, I'm going to do it too.

- Being 21 and starting the SlimFast diet. What happened to being young and having a fast metabolism? Oh that's right, I got the sucky side of the gene pool.
- Trying to jog 2 miles and being passed by moms with strollers and old women who are CLEARLY in way better shape than I am. At least when Bella lived with me I had an excuse to suck at running. Now I'm on my own. It blows.
- Wearing pants that show my butt crack when I bend over. Jeans never fit me right. WAAAH.

- Less than two months until I'm a college graduate, thrust out into the "real" world without an INKLING of what I want to do with my completely useless degree. 
- Assisting with photo shoots for the magazine. Seriously. Awesome. It's nothing like what I always imagined it to be, but still super cool and I feel so fancy when I get to help like I did today.
-I get to see my smokin' hot boyfriend tomorrow. And I'm taking my Slim Fasts down to his house because I really need to get skinny before I have to fit into my Lily Pulitzer dress for Steeplechase. Nobody likes a fatty in a floral print. JKJKJKJKJK.
Sidebar: I think it's cool to see before/after Photoshop pictures, so for anyone who might be curious about my banner, I used this picture that I took of myself during the summer of 2009 and used Photoshop CS5 to turn it into what you see up there ^. =)



  1. Love your segment, and everyone sucks at running it's okay :) And I know what it's like to get the crap end of the gene pool. Huge bummer :(

  2. Hiya, visiting from Sydney's thread.

    I feel you on the useless degree (mine is Asian Studies, and did not help in the job market) but Im sure you will do fine.
