My name is Amanda and this morning I spilled the coffee I was carrying all over myself because I walked into a wall. Just turned around and stumbled right into it. One time, I won a restaurant food challenge by accident. I wave like the Queen of England when I see people I know because I don’t like being hugged. Recently, I forgot I was on a first date and burped like a beer-bellied, middle-aged man.
It’s safe to say I am a card-carrying member of Club Awkward.
Here on Awkward & Aware you’ll find my illustrated tales of travel plans gone awry, feeble attempts to be a cool kid, ill-fated experiments with online dating, and oh so much more. I’ve also started a series called, Anxiety Adventures, which is my way of demystifying and de-stigmatizing mental illness. I’d like to note, however, that I am drawing from my personal experiences, but hopefully they help someone else out there feel a little less alone and slightly more understood.
