    Confessing About A Movie I Like

    I have been an atheist for nearly a decade now, and no matter how much time passes I still run into the same types of people when it comes to negative experiences explaining my beliefs. It's not people who tell me I'm going to hell or anything you'd imagine on that line. Rather...

    I'm now in the car with my dad's driver he's

    going to drop me off at my workplace. He's cute and pretty much older than me, so I get a bit shy and idk what to say or ask anymore lol. More awkward is when we both wanted to turn on the radio. There's still half an hour before he could drop me off. 😳

    One of my best friends started going out with

    people after starting college. She is in a serious relationship now. I didn't really care much because people can do what they want, but then her boyfriend put up a picture of them kissing passionately and it makes me uncomfortable because I never really imagined her being like...

    So I just woke up and I can perfectly remember

    the dream that I had; it left me with a really awkward feeling. I was at school hanging out with my friends and at the end of the day I for some reason got into my friends car instead of the bus. He drove for a bit and we got really close to my uncle's house so I told him where...

    It can't be helped. Sometimes you can just sense an awkward mood and before it sinks in, you try and lighten the mood... but you end up just making it completely awkward.
