Hi there! OneAwkwardYear was launched in January of 201o as a place for me to showcase my unique and irresistible personality via the written word over the course of one, you guessed it, awkward year. Yes, I do realize we’re now well into either our Third or Fourth Awkward Year (not so great at math around these parts) but I’m not going anywhere and, well, I can’t figure out how to change the blog title. So why don’t we all just stop worrying about the details and enjoy the ride.
I am 28 years old, I work in Manhattan in the book publishing industry and live in Brooklyn where I enjoy a plethora of farmers markets and artisinal goods. My favorite scent is Autumn and I look best in the color green. I once totaled my car in my parents driveway and I was named the second funniest girl in the Class of 2007 in a poll in our college newspaper.
I was walking down the street recently, rushing to get to Trader Joe’s, stock up on my favorite hummus, and a homeless man yelled out as I walked past. “Hey, Speedy!” he called after me. I didn’t turn around. He tried again: “Hey, Chicken Legs! Hey slow down, Speedy Chicken Legs!”
So I’d say that’s me in a nutshell: awkward, artisinal, almost really funny, Speedy Chicken Legs.
Also: I am actually a we, a set of conjoined twins.
Just kidding, that’s just two photos of me side-by-side.
Thanks for stopping by!
