For years, I have loved watching other people create funny, cute, inspiring videos and upload them to YouTube. This year, one of my resolutions was to “Create a YouTube Channel”. Keep in mind I’ve said this for years, but I’ve always been scared of what people would say, or I would give up because I didn’t know what to film. I’ve always wanted to be on the screen. So finally, I created my channel. I created it around January 8th, and about two months later, I have around 250 subscribers. HELL YEAAAHHHHHH. Okay, obviously not the highest number you’ve ever seen a youtuber have, but it’s something! I hope you guys want to join me on my YouTube experience by watching my videos and subscribing!
Also, I suggest that if there is anything you’ve been wanting to do for a long time but have not gotten around to do it, DO IT. Stop pushing it away and start pulling it closer to you. It’ll just be the beginning and everything will only rise from here on out!
I know it has been four months, but I still look for you everywhere I go. Sometimes I feel like we could just pick up where we had left, right before we fought. We were bestfriends, but I guess if we were truly bestfriends, nothing would get in between us. So I guess we weren’t bestfriends, but it sure felt real. It felt like a breakup with a boyfriend, but worse because from my past experience, I truly believe bestfriends are supposed to stick around for the rest of your life. One time I thought I saw you. My heart raced, I couldn’t think straight, and I began to panic. That’s when I realized it still hurts my heart. From the minute we met, I instantly fell in love with our friendship. You made me feel confident, happy, and safe with you. I wish I could say I still felt the same. It’s been four months since we last texted. It’s been four months since I’ve seen your smile. Late at night, I tend to think about our lost friendship. It’s been four months, and I still miss you. I know it could never be the same with us. I know that if we ever see each other in person again, we will probably look the other way. I know that we have become strangers with memories I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thanks for a great summer and thanks for the year of friendship, stranger. If only you knew I was thinking of you.
I realize you guys don’t know me well enough yet, but this is something that happens to me a lot. “Awkward experiences with guys”. Luckily, I’m able to laugh about these things..
When it comes to guys, I’m pretty awkward myself, but now that I think about it, I’m only awkward because what they sometimes say make me VERY uncomfortable. I’m gonna split these “‘Super awk experiences” up to where each blog I post about these, it’ll be in one place each.
SPRING BREAK BABES
My Junior year Spring Break, I went to the beach with a few of my closest friends. We walk into a little shop on the boardwalk around 10:00pm, and talk up a storm with the girl working there. 30 minutes go by and some super cute guys walk in, and before we know it, we’re talking to them too. So the worker starts talking about how she has a taser (cool story bro), and how people ask if she can taser them (cool story bro, again). So this guy tells his friend “dude you gotta do it”, and the super cute guy is like “Okay dude”. So as she is about to tase him, he backs out (this back and forth thing goes on for about 30 minutes). So, I’m over here minding my own business, when the worker and ALL MY FRIENDS decide to use me as a prize? “dude, if you get tased, you can have her number! You don’t want to let her down, do you”? THANKS GUYS. 5 minutes later, he gets tazed (he gets no number).
Embarrassing enough? Think again.
Again, we are walking through the boardwalk, as we were passing by a huge group of black guys, along with a few cops. With cops very close by, we had no problem walking by the huge group of guys because “why would anyone do/say anything inappropriate with the possibility of getting in trouble”? Being the only one out of my friend group with a very short walking stride, I was falling behind all of my friends. As I’m about to leave the area of guys, I sense one approaching me. “bigger strides, bigger strides. Don’t make eye contact, don’t scream”….. A little black guy, (shorter then me, and I’m 5″3) who looked around 30 years old, came up to me, got in my face and goes “Hey little white girl, you like some chocolate” (obviously referring to himself)?!!!!?????!??!?!?!?!!?!?!?! I looked straight ahead and almost yelled “NO”. That, my friends, was the first and only time I’ve ever said no to chocolate.
Of course, all my friends had turned to see this whole thing happen, and we died laughing all the way back to the hotel. To this day, I haven’t lived it down. They literally tell everyone about it. Not lying. Everyone.
Once again, we were walking on the boardwalk, and I spotted two really hot twins. I had my Nikon camera with me, and as we were passing by where these twins were, one of them looked at me and was like “are you here to take my picture”? I laughed and said no… (I regret my decision very badly). Then he says “I can take my shirt off if you want”??? Do you know what my response was??? I LAUGHED AND WALKED AWAY, because I didn’t hear him. All my friends wanted to literally kill me, and once again, I haven’t lived this down. They all think I can’t hear anything, and I agree. So ladies and gentlemen, please keep open ears always and say yes to shirtless guys (only to some things though).
So these three lovely stories happened over spring break (along with some more guy experiences, but they were much better, so no need to blog about them), and I hope you’ll give this a nice thumbs up if you guys want to hear more extremely awkward stories.
XOXO, Courtney Leigh
