More than anything, I would love to have a juicy burger to celebrate. I am not sure what it is with me and burgers here lately…but it has apparently caught up to me. I am finding myself in the beginning stages of a health crisis, and if I don’t change fast, things will continue to […]
When I was 16, nothing was more important to me than having a job and my driver’s license. I did not waste my time on either. I had a job not even a week after I turned 16, and within a month I was down at the DMV. I soon discovered, though, that driving brought […]
At the beginning of the year, I left a job I loved. Unfortunately, it was no longer a productive place for me to be, and I felt I was on a sinking ship and had to get out–quickly! At first, I cried and cried and cried. I felt I had been forced to leave. I […]
Years ago, I swore up and down I would NEVER run. I thought runners were crazy, and I hated the monotony of it. My endurance was terrible. I was not a fast runner in the rare instances I had to run, and it was just downright uncomfortable for me. But in late April of 2018, […]
“What started out with good intentions soon became a major problem, and I found myself sliding faster and faster down this slippery slope called weight loss.” It is hard to believe that 2018 isn’t too far from being over. Wow, this year has just flown by! Many gardens are also coming to an end-of-harvest season. […]
A quick note: This is a brutally honest post. Please read with caution. I don’t mean to come off as a jerk or offend anyone, but grief has been on my heart here lately. I felt like someone needed to read this. I have a tender heart for those who are grieving, as I have […]
I guess when most people think of a strain, they probably think a leg or hand. Some kind of body part. Well, I strained my voice today. For the first time in 13 years, I sang in the most professional manner I have since 12th grade in 2005: the church choir. To me, that’s probably […]

I just turned 30, and I have some big goals for this decade!
I have been writing since I can remember, and it was something I always knew I was called to do. I enjoy writing fiction and memoir, and I have recently found a love for blogging.
Speaking of blogging, TheAwkwardDoe.com is just a simple blog about a simple 30-year-old who is an awkward individual who likes to share her life with others. I will write about whatever is on my mind, from my favorite recipe to our most recent camping trip to my love-hate relationship with running to more serious, taboo topics, like struggling with disordered eating along with grief and depression.
I am an honest person, and I believe my job as a writer is to be even more honest. After all, it’s not about me–it’s about creating an experience for YOU, my reader, and I do that through honesty.
I am fun to get to know, and I am sure I will amuse you in some sort of way with my awkwardness!
Browse around, check out my Archives. I am sure you’ll find something that interests you.
Thanks for stopping by!
