10 Daily Struggles of Being The Weird Friend

Every group of friends has that one friend that no one really knows how he/she became friends with them. But somehow they're here and now that they know too many secrets and have heard you talk about countless people behind their back, they kinda have to stay. Sound familiar? Well, in my group of friends, I am that person. I don't know why my best friends choose to put up with me or how I got blessed with them, but regardless, I'm glad they do and I don't know what I'd do without them. Here are some struggles I, as the weird friend, face every day, as told by the weirdest friend of them all, Andy Dwyer.

1. Your friends are always laughing.

Now, are they laughing with me because I'm funny.. Or laughing at me because I'm weird?

2. You're used to people asking "What is wrong with you?"

Nothing, really, I just don't know how to be normal.

3. Any time you try to be cool, you just end up being really, really awkward.

Alright, be cool. You don't want to freak these people out......too late.

4. Your friends think something is wrong when you're not being a total weirdo.

5. People are often confused by things you find funny.


Okay, so maybe I could've toned that down just a little... But then it wouldn't have been as fun. It'll be okay. They'll get over it.

6. "Stop acting like that, people are staring"

7. Your flirting is well...mediocre.

8. You're really good at making every situation a great time.

9. You have a hard time being a real person.

10. You have that one friend who always encourages your weirdness.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F24%2F635865822978176269904645751_giphy%2520%282%29.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=462&h=6bfff1eba01e961023f90adc9c1c7728a0537c4a1b03817e71adfa232d26719b&size=980x&c=1600560291 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F24%252F635865822978176269904645751_giphy%252520%25282%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D462%26h%3D6bfff1eba01e961023f90adc9c1c7728a0537c4a1b03817e71adfa232d26719b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1600560291%22%7D" expand=1]

There's nothing wrong with being the weird friend. To be honest, I'd rather be weird than normal. We keep the laughs going and make the silences awkward. Weirdos unite.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
