Living Life In A Rom Com, minus the Rom…

One thing that you should know about me is that my favorite kinds of movies are Romantic Comedies. The other thing you should know about me is that my life is one big screwed up Rom Com. That sounds great, doesn’t it? HARD NO! I’m a hopeless romantic living in a world of realistic people.

I’m just a girl… standing in front of the internet, asking someone, anyone (okay not anyone), to love me.

You’re probably thinking “this is literally every millennial girl, you’re not special.” I mean, you’re not completely wrong, but let me drop some facts. Just picture every uncomfortable, awkward with boys, doesn’t know how to flirt girl in every RomCom you’ve ever seen. That’s me. I’m clumsy as all hell and quite frequently find myself in uncomfortable and embarrassing situations with members of the male species. The guy I like NEVER seems to like me back, and whenever he does, one of us f**ks it up. I’ve been stood up, left on read, friendzoned (I hate this word, but it’s accurate to my life), I’ve been used to give advice on how to hook up with my friends, you name it, it probably happened.

All that aside, there have been situations in my life that would make Rom Com writer’s checking accounts go up a few dollars. Let me set the scene. Freshman year in High School Sarah. Literally week 2 or 3 of high school. I was getting ready to go to Field Hockey practice and literally, all of the varsity and junior varsity football players were getting ready for practice in front of the gymnasium doors. Their equipment and helmets were tossed haphazardly across the ground, waterbottles lay rolling around, and they just stood there talking and waiting for practice to start. I walked out of the Field House, talking to my friends and not paying attention. Not even two steps later, I stepped IN one of the helmets laying on the ground and fell flat on my face. I got up with a twisted ankle and a smidge less dignity.

All in all, this post was mostly just to make some people laugh. I didn’t really know where this post was going when I wrote it, but now it’s here so thanks for reading I guess! I don’t even know what to categorize or tag this post, so I’m not even going to. Writing 3 posts a week is hard folks!!!!
