There’s just something about adolescence — and I think it has a lot to do with hormones — that tends to bring out the awkwardness in people. Admittedly, I had my own awkward phase, but it was when I was nine. I was too gangly for my own good, with teeth too big for my small mouth and a terrible bowl haircut. Needless to say, it wasn’t pretty, but I think hitting a point in your life when you just don’t quite fit in or know how to act is about as normal as it gets. Were you one of the lucky few that skipped it altogether or did you have an awkward phase like me?
