My Most Awkward Memories From Teenagehood
From least painful to most painful.
- •Buying tampons in junior year, saw my cute lab partner.His name was Paolo. He was from Brazil and he was a senior and I had an enormous crush on him and when when he saw what I was buying he blushed and went to a different line. In retrospect, #rude
- •Tripped and fell on face in front of a gym full of people.I fell all the way down the bleachers. Everyone went instantly silent and no one helped me.
- •Boy thoughtfully told me my ankle was bleedingIt was lunchtime and I was sitting in the quad. I was in a skirt and had been sitting (daintily, I thought) on my ankles. Perhaps you see where this is going. He thought that I had scraped my ankle on something. I had not. It was my first period. I bled on my ankles. It was gross. My mom offered to take me home but I had a social studies test I didn't want to miss so I changed and stayed at school.
