1. I've come to realise I am pretty much incapable of not being awkward in photos. I don't really like taking my picture taken because I don't like smiling for the camera. I don't know why. I don't like smiling if I don't feel like it or something like that. So if I'm forced to pose, I usually make a face and ruin the picture and/or end up being super super awkward. Hands clenched into fists, pulling at the legs of my jeans, or just playing with my fingers.
I carved pumpkins with some friends for Halloween and we took pictures with our creations and for some reason I had fit of giggles and couldn't get it together. It took an embarrassing number of attempts in order to get one where I wasn't ruining it for everyone.
2. At the class I took last weekend, there were a bunch of teenagers and the instructor was talking about how when you're young you have to miss out on all these cool bands that play at 18+ or 21+ venues and he was like, "You guys know what I'm talking about" and pointed to me and the young kids. Um...too bad I was probably one of the oldest people there and am well over 21. Nothing awkward going on there. Just like the time a couple months ago when someone thought I was in the 7th grade.
