How To Be Awkward: At The Office


Being the best awkward you can be takes a lot of feelings. Discomfort, paranoia, a need to prove yourself as not awkward and not knowing your place in the world all tend to create a good base for the perfect awk-sauce recipe. The best kitchen for your personal blend of awk is the office, especially if you’re new. You’ll have no idea who’s nice, who you need to impress, and who to steer clear of.

Instead spending painstaking hours planning your plan of awkward attack, take my  advice. I know you’re jealous of that girl with mascara stained cheeks at the office Holiday party. I mean how does she do it? Well, by following  a few simple steps you’ll be capturing her awkward-turtle flag in no time.

I'm a journalist, blogger and avid social media user. I love tweeting, tumbling and pinning. Although, my greatest passion lies in entertainment news and popular culture. Thanks to Syracuse University I tend to bleed orange.
