Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

AW-w-w-wKWARD Moments!

Have you ever found yourself in a totally awkward, meaning AWKWARD!!!, moment—that moment when 'you wished you could wish' yourself back in time? Wiggle your nose and vanish to a new location, new place in time? Blink your eyes and the entire event simply disappear in a flash? The let me outta' here kind of feeling? Such moments happen all the time to some folks, of course more than others but usually when completely unexpected

Today you get to celebrate all of those moments you once wished at the time the ground would simply open up and swallow to oblivion. Why? Because...

March 18 is...

National Awkward Moments Day

For anyone and everyone who’s ever wished they could turn back the hands of time, Awkward Moments Day is a celebration of all those crazy, weird moments that made you feel clumsy, bungling, butterfingered, to sum it up in one word, completely maladroit! Those moments that delegated the response "Nice going, grace!

From walking out of a public toilet realizing you entered the men's room (you are a female) to dragging loose toilet paper attached to the bottom of your shoe as you amble along to realizing you’ve been speaking to someone everyday for a year when you suddenly have no clue of that person's name, life is full of awkward moments. They happen. Without warning, A.W.K.W.A.R.D. strikes! Ouch!

Although there isn’t much information regarding the origins of Awkward Moments Day, many people have commented on how interesting it is that it is the day after St Patrick’s day! Awkward Moments Day can boast a mascot though, the awkward turtle.

So, if anything awkward happens on Awkward Moments Day, be sure to see the humor of the situation and have a good laugh about it—before moving on to the next one!


Dare to share? There IS a comment section! What is your most awkward moment?

For me, it has to be when I was still a classroom teacher. It was on a day, of course, when the Assistant Principal entered my room for an unannounced observation. He quietly took a seat and almost fell out of the chair when I calmly instructed the students to take out their 'workshits!' OOPS! I meant to say worksheets! AW-w-w-wKWARD!
