'This Won't Be Awkward.' Well ...
by Jonathan Buckley
So I'm already awkward as heck, so when I walked into the YMP newsroom, which was full of new people who I was not sure if I was going to like anyway, I tried to be as unseen as possible. And then a teacher—I'm not sure what else to call them since we are students—named Emily had us play a game. I was thinking to myself, "Oh cool, I like games. This won't be awkward."
Then, we had to do stuff like touching people's noses with our fingertips and having elbows on each other's knees. When we did this, we had to talk to each other like this wasn't weird, and I was thinking to myself, "Are y'all CRAZY???"
When we did this, though, I met some pretty cool people who I am sort of friends with already. I really don't want to say friends because it has only been three days for knowing these people.
I guess the moral of the story is that no matter how awkward I am, there is something always more awkward than I am.
