sorry for talking...

Sometimes, you say something without thinking first. And it's embarrassing. You're sitting there in a group of people, and everyone's telling hilarious stories, so you feel like you need to join in. That's the first problem.
And then, you just say the first thing you can think of without planning ahead. 

Then, you realize your mistake. Because your audience usually looks like this.

It's time to make a quick recovery. You have to say something awesome. So, once again, you speak without thinking.

And it worked. Your audience is absolutely enthralled.
This is where we run into problem 4. Then what? You have to keep adding to your story, and your brain STILL doesn't seem to be functioning.

The story becomes a big huge lie, and it keeps getting worse. And worse. And worse.

Someone calls you out on the lie. 

And you're stuck. What started as an innocent story made all your friends think you're a complete idiot.

Terrible Roommate Saves the Day!! (loose interpretation of saves)

I'm guessing a lot of you have had bad experiences with roommates. There's usually one that won't do her dishes, leaves her stuff everywhere, etc. Well, this time, I'm the terrible roommate. There, I said it. It actually feels good to get if off my chest. Now, I'm not one of the roommates that refuses to clean or steals other people's stuff or anything. No no. I just sometimes accidentally ruin my roommates food.

Are you confused? I thought you might be. So, here's an illustration. Introducing, my second cartoon of the blog! Hooray!

So, one day, my beautiful roommate Holly was cooking herself a lovely meal.

Holly leaves to go to class. She left her baked potatoes in the sink. (Now, I don't think I'm 100% to blame for this one, because after all, potatoes don't really belong there.) This is the part where I come in.

I decided to be a "good roommate" and do my dishes. You'll never guess what happened.

Yep. Dirty dishwater. All over her potatoes. (I swear it was an accident.) I grimaced a little while she ate them... but she's still alive so no harm done. Right?

Okay, if that's not bad enough for you, here's scenario two. One of my other roommates has a missionary. She's the biggest sweetheart in the world, and decided to bake him some brownies and mail them to him.

While the brownies were cooling, I made myself a delicious feast of Ramen noodles. Now, I don't think all the blame should be put on my shoulders this time either. I was literally like ten feet away when I opened the little seasoning packet.

It exploded! Onto the brownies! I'm surprised she didn't notice the little black and white dots that now covered her creation. I wish I could see his face when he took the first bite. Who knows.. maybe it'll taste good.

And finally, the last incident that has happened (so far). I was minding my own business, looking for a snack in the fridge, when BAM! The biggest tub of yogurt I have ever seen comes tumbling to the floor. And of course exploded everywhere upon impact.

Seeing as we're all poor college students, I couldn't waste her precious yogurt. So, being the caring person that I am, I just scooped it right back in.

Oh, did I mention that we've only lived here for 2 weeks? And I've already caused this much destruction.

If any of you lovely people have hilarious/awesome/embarrassing roommate stories, feel free to share them in the comment section below!


Ps. If you're my roommate and you're reading this, I love you very much. Also, this post involves slight exaggeration. It's not as bad as you think....

...well here it goes

To begin my very first post on my very first blog... let me start with a disclaimer. This blog is not about my life, so if you came here with the sole purpose to stalking me or learning about my very very interesting and exciting life then I guess you should probably go back to Facebook. Most posts will be stuff I've observed about other people or cool stuff I found on the internet. I will occasionally make a cartoon about something interesting/embarrassing that happened to me, though.

And, in fact, this first post is about something that happened! I thought you guys could relate. So here it is. My first cartoon!

If you don't get it, it's about still having feelings for someone who dumped you. I guess it's a little depressing. But that's life. I promise all my posts won't be about hating men or feeling sorry for myself. They might even be funny sometimes if any of you share my unusual sense of humor.

So, to continue with today's theme, look at these awesome pictures!

Yep, I know, still depressing. Again, though, I'm assuming some of you can relate. And here it goes, the end of my very first post. This is why I love being a girl. (Click on the link.)
