Oh My Car

So my most recent awkward moments both have to deal with Betsy Bug. The first one happened a few nights ago. It snowed really bad so I was scared anyways and my brain was slightly flustered. We went to our friends house and I had parked in the driveway. Later, I put the car in reverse, went down the driveway and tried to turn my car and it wouldn't go anywhere! Turns out I hadn't started my car....The second awkward moment wasn't even my fault! (at least I don't think it was) I went to the gas station and opened my car door, from the inside, and my stinkin car alarm went off! and I couldn't figure out how to stop it! Once I got it to stop I opened my door again and it went off again! It proceeded to go off like 4 times! I was so embarrassed. Then I went and picked up my friends from their house and it did it again! I finally got it to stop for good. Thank goodness. It was so weird!!!

Legit Dinner

Ya. I totally made dinner tonight. All by myself! I know. I totally rock. But it wasn't easy.... I kinda struggle sometimes (which is the whole reason I made this blog). So part of the recipe called for a cup of bbq sauce and I had a hard time getting it out. So I grabbed a spoon and started hitting the top of it. My lovely roommates, Sally and Susie, then told me that it would be easier just to scrape it. I then got worried because I didn't know where a scraper was, so I shyly asked them, "Can I use my spoon?" Apparently spoons get the job done.
Dinner was an absolute success :)

Loser Starts with an L

So I was just messing around and trying to make an L on my head to call someone a loser and then I realized that even though when I looked at my hand it made an L, it definitely did not make an L to the rest of the world. Epic fail on my part. I then proceeded to run to my hallway and hide like i always do while I laugh hard!

Epic Moments in the Life of Kandace

So this story isn't awkward at all. K so there might be some awkward parts, but it was mostly just EPIC! So tonight was the institute opening social. It was fiesta themed and you could either eat nachos or a bean burrito. I had chips, a tortilla, and salsa (since I don't like beans). My friends and I were stuck sitting on the gym floor. It was entertaining. We then went home for a little bit until the dance started at 9:30. By this point the snow was coming down pretty hard so we took Wendy's car because it has four wheel drive. We ended up parking forever away and freezing our boot-ays off.
The dance ended up being a lot of fun. There were tons of people there and actually pretty good music (considering it was an institute dance). I saw lots of friends that I hadn't seen for awhile and meeting a few new people. Surprisingly the dance was a great success. The last song was a slow song (surprised? I'm not) and I ended up dancing with a boy from my institute class. He invited my friends and I to another dance party afterward, so we decided to be adventurous and try something new! We soon discovered that the nice little snow storm had turned into a blizzard!!!!
We decided we might as well still go. We went back to our apartment and at about 12:30, Wendy, Josefine, and I braved the blizzard. Wendy and Josefine both had coats, but I didn't want to deal with mine-so I was just in a t-shirt and jeans. Soon after we left, I got a text that said that the party was already over. So we turned around and headed back to the apartment. We were half a block away and all of the snow fell off the top of the car and onto her front wind shield and Wendy couldn't see a single thing! Super scary to say the least.
Wendy pulled over to the side of the road and realized that she was stuck. This is where the fun began. We all got out of the car and helper number one came and helped us. He was kind of...dumb. He fell completely down twice and then told Wendy to, "ride it out" which got her even more stuck! So he left. Out of the blue, helper number two walked up the sidewalk and gave us a skate board to try and shovel us out. It was very nice of her, but it didn't help much. Soon enough helper number three came our way. Helper number three ended up being my dear friend, Marshall, and his friend. I was ever so happy to see Marshall because I haven't seen him since like...November! Luckily they had chains. And Marshall let me wear his coat. Except Marshall kept running out of gas. That part was kind of funny. While Marshall and his friend were helping us, we had many other helpers come along. 3 more to be exact. One was even on a fourwheeler! Luckily we got out, thank you again Marshall!
The coolest part of the night...I got so much snow in my hair while we were stuck that I made a snow ball with it!!!! SO COOL! Overall-it was a night that I'll remember forever! Well worth the adventure!
Sorry this ended up being so was just super epic :)

Just One of Those Days

For those of you who know me personally, you know that sometimes I just struggle. Sometimes I say things that come out weird and do things to embarrass myself. People think I'm crazy-but I think I'm awesome. Just sayin. It mostly happened during dinner...
  1. My roommate, Betty, is a Food Network fanatic just like me! So we were discussing our favorite shows right before dinner. Our favorite is Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. I was talking about how my dream honeymoon is to go on a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives roadtrip. My other roommate, Gertrude, thought I was talking about my dream husband. I went on to say, as two boys walked into our apartment, "I don't really think about my future husband, just our honeymoon." sounded really bad! I just really want to go to all of the restaurants.
  2. I can't remember why I started laughing, but I was laughing and eating and accidentally spit out some of my food. EMBARRASSING!
  3. I was about to take my bowl to the sink and said something and moved my bowl-flinging soup all over the counter and my chair.
  4. This last one isn't very funny- but my friend, Fredrick, said I should put it on my blog. I was trying to figure out how to make a clappy noise one handed. I though you could do it my moving your wrist up and down. But Fredrick pointed out that it's impossible to reach your fingers to your wrist no matter how hard you try. It took me like five minutes shaking my hand up and down looking like the biggest dork ever to figure it out. So I guess you have to shake your hand sideways. Give me a few weeks of practice, and I'll figure it out.
Hopefully tomorrow is a little less embarrassing. I'm not counting on it though.

Random Thoughts During Dance Class

So today in class, my teacher said, "Make sure you use your dairy-air in everything you do!" and it took me a minute to realize that she was just talking about while you dance. During that minute of confusion, I was trying to figure out how that could actually work! I mean-no matter what your dairy-air is involved with what you do. But knowingly use it all the time? That's nearly impossible! Like I said, I figured it out a minute later. No worries

Awkward Moment of January 15, 2010

I was in Wal-Mart with my roommate on Friday and we were deciding what candies to put in the middle of these delicious brownie cupcake thingies we were going to make (recipe found here). I then saw my friend that I haven't seen for awhile. He came up to me and grabbed my ears. I of course asked why and he said, "Because it's awkward" and walked away. The end.

Awkward Moment of January 14, 2010

To show that I have awkward moments everyday (are you paying attention brother of mine) I am going to include the date of the awkward moment. I might write it on here a day late, but I will write it nonetheless.

So last night i was watching a scary movie with some friends. Except it was really dumb. So I made sure that I let everyone know that it was a dumb movie and I wasn't scared. Not two minutes later I scary part happened and I jumped, screamed, and nearly kicked my friend I was sitting next to in the face. I was two inches from breaking her nose, and her glasses. Everyone proceeded to make fun of me because I was saying the movie wasn't scary. But really, it wasn't, at all. Except for like two parts....O well, guess I better watch what I say during scary movies from now on...

Awkward Hug...

This story isn't quite as funny as the others, but it is very awkward nonetheless. I was walking to class and I saw a boy that was in one of my classes last semester that I would sit by occasionally. He was walking down the stairs, and I was walking up. For some reason he decided to give me a hug when he was a step above me. Probably the most awkward hug in my life for 2 reasons:
  1. I don't know him very well
  2. He was on a different step! I thought I was going to fall over!
I proceeded to let him know that it was a very awkward hug. I kinda think he felt bad. Maybe he'll learn that its weird to hug people that you don't really know, especially when they're on a different step!

Blast from the Past!

I decided I should probably include some old, awkward experiences because I have plenty to go around!

So a few years ago, I was at my grandmas house with my grandma, my mom, and a boy named Victor. Victor really liked me. My mom and my grandma were outside so we were inside. Alone. My grandma had a bowl of chocolate kisses and I was eating one. I figured Victor would want one too. So I asked: "Victor- wanna kiss?" His eyes instantly got all big and he instantly got nervous. Then I informed him I was talking about chocolate kisses. I hadn't even been thinking about regular kisses! I kinda felt bad for getting his hopes up....

Hey! I Have a Blog!

So...I'm not sure how this whole blog thing works... so bare with me. I've been thinking about making this blog for a long time, and after being bugged enough about it...I've decided to give it a go. To start off I will share some awkward experiences from last night.

  • First of all, I was at Family Home Evening and I thought I was wearing matching pants with a girl named Alice (Well her name isn't really Alice, I'm just changing all the names, remember?). Anyways as soon as I noticed I said, as the room went completely silent, "Alice! We're wearing the same pants!" I got a few strange looks after that, and it turns out they weren't even the same brand of pants!

  • Second awkward moment: I was on a date and we had gone to get ice cream (YUM!). We just ate it in the car on our way to the movie theater. He let me try his so i ended up having two cups of ice cream in my hand and he said, "Pound them!" So of course i hit the cups together with a very confused look on my face. I soon learned that "pounding" something also means eat it. He was telling me to eat them both! My bad!
