Anger (a Socially Awkward web comic)

Anger (a Socially Awkward web comic)

Everyone deals with anger differently

We all have different levels of anger. Our anger manifests in unique ways. When people push my buttons, I react swiftly. Like a fire, my rage burns bright and quick, then fizzles. Steve, on the other hand…

Well, Steve is like an immovable mountain. Things rarely get to him. I mean, seriously – the world could be crumbling around him and there he would stand, stoic and logical as always. Always one step ahead of the game. Except for that .0001% moment when something really gets to him and he flies of the handle. And EVERY TIME it’s some teeny, tiny, insignificant thing.

It’d be hilarious if it wasn’t so dang shocking. o.O

Vitamin D: catching some sun on a nice summer’s day…

My immune system and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship. Mainly, it hates me. Most days we are not on speaking terms. Because of this, I have a vitamin D deficiency. I take supplements (like, a LOT) but there’s no cure than good, old-fashioned sunshine, am I right?

Only, I’m also pale. Like, vampire pale. Like, just a shade darker than albino pale. So, while I need vitamin D, I can only handle the sun in small doses.

I’m not even kidding on this. I wear INFANT sunscreen – which is supposed to last 80 minutes before reapplication is necessary. Yeah, no. Try 30, if I’m lucky.

Makes going to the beach a fun time. 😉

Anyone else have this problem? Has anyone else considered one of those burkinis? Because legit, I have. What do you do to combat the harsh sun rays? Inquiring minds want to know!

Liberty for All (a SociallyAwkward comic)

Liberty for All (a SociallyAwkward comic)

Liberty (and justice) for ALL…

Sometimes I’m so tired. Tired of all the hatred, dissent, division, and fear. Tired of feeling helpless. Tired of praying and wishing for a better tomorrow, when it all just feels so… impossible. All in the name of liberty. But what is it, really? It is freedom: the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views.

Funny how people are twisting it and oppressing others freedoms in the name of their own.

Funny how people are forgetting that liberty is for ALL – no color barriers, no restrictions.

Except it isn’t funny. Not one bit..

And I will not be silent.

Game of Thrones (GOT) Season 7 Premiere – My Reactions

Ours is a staunch GOT household. We do not, as a rule, watch a lot of television. One show before bed (our living room TV has legitimately not been touched since last Thanksgiving. Or when our pet sitter stays over. But I don’t count that because WE aren’t technically the ones watching it…)

Anyway, all that to say that GOT is one of the only shows we will watch on the same night it airs. So when they finally – FINALLY, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! – aired the season 7 premiere, I was oh so ready. And I may have gotten a little excited during Arya’s intro. Or cried a little too hard at the scene with the Hound in the middle of the night. Or — well, let’s just say a lot of different emotions were involved. So, I thought I’d share them here. 🙂

What about you? Favorite parts of the episode? Least favorite? I’d love to compare notes!

P.S. Enjoy the comic! <3


Harry Potter 20th Anniversary (a Socially Awkward comic)

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary (a Socially Awkward comic)

Harry Potter – a lifelong love…

A couple of weeks ago was the 20th Anniversary of J.K. Rowlings beloved children’s series, Harry Potter. I myself am a diehard Potterhead. Steve and I (and the fur babies) watch the Harry Potter movies frequently throughout the year. It’s a long-standing favorite, and that will certainly never change (been going on for over a decade!).

So, this was my little tribute to the books and a nod to J.K. Rowling, for creating some of the best stories I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and living. <3

Best Dad (a Socially Awkward comic)

Best Dad (a Socially Awkward comic)

The Best Dad always has the same top qualities…

What makes a “best dad,” really? Simply put, I feel that a “best dad” is: (1) a provider, (2) a protector, (3) a teacher, and (4) a big old softy at heart. To me, a dad is a dad whether his children have two legs or four. Because, my Steve is DEFINITELY a “best dad” to our fur babies. If we could have kids, I know that he would be a “best dad” to them, too. <3
