I’m an awkward human. There’s a reason Lyric calls me Issa Rae of the Bay. It’s something I’ve embraced and learned to love about myself, but I also recognize that the awkward doesn’t rub everyone the same way. Snippet below from a convo with my brother, following my latest attempted foray into the dating world.
Me: I think I scared the boy away.
Me: With my awkward.
Kendal: Ah. Yeah, not everybody finds that endearing my guy.
Me: Yep, so I’m learning.
Kendal: And if they don’t, fuck ’em. *shrugs* Not everyone is meant to be in your life.
He’s pretty wise sometimes.
