Awesome: A soon-to-be classmate helping me sort my living situation by linking me to various housing websites, giving me the low-down on who's looking for a roommate and advice on who has been rumored to be a bad choice to live with.
Awkward: Finding out she accidentally emailed the latter information to me AND the person under discussion. See you guys in the fall! This should be fun...
Awesome: As a result of my book on tape being read by a woman from Great Britain, my internal monologue is now often tinged with a british accent. Sweet.
Awesome: Successfully showcasing the culmination of the last 1.25 years of work in a poster presentation.
Awkward: Giving aforementioned presentation at a school I interviewed at but rejected.
The repeated conversation:
Me: So that was our general finding. Do you have any questions?
Distinguished Dude: Yeah, just one - Where did you decide to go to grad school instead of here?
Awkward: Being the only non-family member at a friend's going away party.
Awkward: Saying goodbye to the insistently self-deprecating employee
Her: "You're going to have so much fun at grad school, you're not going to miss us at all."
Me: Of course I will, I'll defini-
Her: No. You wont.
Awkward: Being caught by my coworker using Photo Booth as a mirror.
Awkward: Mirror poses. In the bathroom.
(What can I say? I liked the pairing of my old man sweater with my pirate shirt.)
Awesome: Seeing this posted on our break room bulletin board.
(You bet I shared my wombat research with my coworkers... Now, to figure out whodunnit...)
Awesome: Giggling as I composed a faux formal email in response to my friend's request for an more official link and password to some photos I recently took of him. It was filled with mock snobbery such as using his full name and sentences like, "I do so hope we remain dearest of friends, even when we're old and deflated like 5 day post-party balloon animals."
Awkward: Finding out the hard way the reason for his request... So he could forward the link and password to his entire extended family.
Awesome: This water-purification-bottle-filler-thing-a-McBobbin-station.
Awkward: Spilling all over myself when I tried to fill my bottle AND take a picture.
Awkward AND Awesome (but way more awesome): A pre-conference sleepover at my boss's house (wine, hot tubbing and glorious digs). She's the coolest boss I've ever had... Including when I was self-employed.
Awkward AND Awesome: Choking on my drink while reading your hilarious awkward/awesomes in the comments last week. I'd love to repeat that experience so leave em' in the comments!
