dear blog,

i have always been a little bit clumsy. i have broken many a thing by accident, tripped in public (sometimes while just plain standing,) spilled on myself, etc. there is a running joke at our house that a dinner is successful if i do not knock a glass over (but seriously, i knock glasses over a lot.) but i feel like this is getting worse. within the last week i have accidentally poured melted butter all down my front, dropped my glasses into my ranch-covered salad while eating, dropped my phone at least 3 times (as in the case, the cover and the battery all fell off,) today i was walking and i nearly fell down, i know for a fact there were more things, but i guess i've already started to block them out. it's not that big of a deal, but i can't help but wonder, WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME? it's like if i'm not paying 100% attention to what my body is doing that something embarrassing is bound to happen. did i not learn how to be a human properly? am i a 4 year old stuck in a 22 year old's body? did i do something to deserve a big daily dose of embarrassment? i think sometimes in movies it can be cute or endearing when someone is a little bit clumsy (i.e. the princess diaries,) but i don't feel cute or endearing when i have food down my front and i lose my balance for no reason.

so.... any tips? any reformed klutz's care to share their secrets to success?

but really.



  1. in the weight class i took over winter semester we focused on how certain lifting techniques help you to learn better balance. we focused on that and not getting bulky or 'hot'. it was way fun. let's do it!

  2. Were you texting while doing any or all of these things? Because we all know you can't text and do ANYTHING else at the same time :)
