It's been almost 9 weeks since I'm here, and I've had my fair share of awkward moments already.
Here are a few that I can remember for now:

First of all, I learned how to walk through the store with a calculator... That's pretty awkward to do...
And if that wasn't all about the store, we go with a suitcase cause we shop for our groceries once a week, so can you imagine how much groceries that gets us? A lot, and heavy bags are killing you when you have to walk back home for at least a 15 minute walk, so, a suitcase to put our stuff in was our solution. *awkward*

Another thing at the beginning was our English, WHOAT?! Am I serious? Yes I'm deadly serious, our English was so bad because of the nerves we had to speak English to people who can't actually understand Dutch is killing! You can't insert a Dutch word if you forgot the English one because they can't understand... It's awkward how you try to remember the word you're looking for and the stress ain't helping. *awkward*

Our flatmates, in the beginning it was all new and stuff, saying hi and how're you going were about the only things we knew to tell them, it was awkward then, what's awkward now, is that we haven't escalated that conversation skill... And it's getting more and more awkward to see them in the house, feeling forced to smile and say hi, ask them how they're doing and then awkwardly walk away when you're done with what you came for... *awkward*

Getting asked by cashiers how your day went and you don't know where to start... You end up saying "You know, same old, same old." As if they're supposed to know what you're doing all day every day, but telling them how your day went is non of their business, call me Dutch and asocial but it's just the truth. And they don't reply after that anyways, so why bother telling them how your day went when you know that deep down they don't give a shit anyways? They're just trying to come over nice because it's their job... *awkward*


When you're at a store for a specific item but you don't know what it's called in English and someone asks you if they can help you, you don't want to waste any time looking through the store for it yourself but you also don't know how to explain what you're looking for... What do you tell them? Knowing me, I try to explain what I'm looking for by telling them what it's for, what it does, what it looks like and mimic the shit out of myself... Finding out they don't understand either way... I had this with TWEEZERS yas, I translated it and as I always experience when I learn a new word, I find out through a video how it's called, this time, it was Grav3yardgirl on youtube with a make up haul and she had bought one too, and she said the word, it was the day when I got them already... If only that video was uploaded one day earlier, I would've known the word and I could've avoided that awkward moment, I also could've googled it before I went there but hi, not every mind is perfect! *awkward*

First time playing Shithead, I thought that after round one, you could throw up any kind of 3 as long as you were the first one to do so, I threw in a heart 3, it wasn't the right 3... *awkward*

Recently, about a few days ago, I was shithead, and so I took two cups to the kitchen, mine and Mark's, I thought they were both empty and so when I asked him to get something from my desk behind me I gestured to it with a hand where I held his cup, his cup wasn't empty, and I splashed water all over me... Luckily it was time to go home anyways. But still *awkward*

So these are my awkward experiences so far...
Hope you guys enjoyed reading this.

I took this at the harbor, you could walk some stairs and end up here, if you walked to the end of this path, you could have a really nice look over the harbor.

The stairs of a Graveyard.
This is in town, it's a huge and really old cemetery, really relaxing if you want to walk in nature on your own or if you want to talk some serious stuff with someone.
Mark and I used it to walk and talk about our lives here in New Zealand, what we were supposed to do and how we should get things done.
It was a deep talk and a relaxing walk.
Don't be scared of the dead.

I used to draw a lot, now I'm more into photography and filming.
Still love writing though! :squee:

Hello, I heard about your loss and I just wanted to tell you that you have my support. I have a dog and I love her. If you need someone to talk to about it or anything, you could send me a note. I know some about hard times. Been through a lot.
Anyway, hang in there. Be strong but know that it is allright to cry sometimes.
