Introducing: The #THATAWKWARDMOMENT Column


Everyone that knows me is well aware that I am a huge fan of romantic comedy films. I don't care if it is ridiculous or not. I will watch every single romantic comedy film that has ever been made. I'm a Libra, which makes me a romantic at heart. The idea of love surrounds my life. Better yet, love is without a doubt the central theme of my life forever.

With that being said, I'm so looking forward to watching the romantic comedy film That Awkward Moment, which comes out January 31st.

It stars Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller. I have followed Zac Efron's work since those High School Musical years. I will be honest and say that this will be my first time seeing Michael B. Jordan on the big screen. I'm somewhat scared to see Fruitvale Station, due to the real life story that the movie is based on, and the tragic dark conclusion to the film. Things like that are too deep for me to bear. I'm new to Miles Teller as well. So this is going to be interesting experience.

One day, I was browsing around the Facebook page created for the movie. There were a few, but not many funny promos featuring the cast where they talked about real life awkward moments. My favorite was when they talked about the awkward moment when someone is waving at you. You wave back at them. But then you turn around and realize that the person behind you was the one they were actually waving at. Not you.

These promos were tiny, yet so funny to me. I loved how these promos covered topics that were so relatable and so funny at the same time. It made me begin to think about the awkward moments I've ever experienced in own life.

All of a sudden, I was riding the subway train back to my apartment. Midway there, I had this idea for a column that is also a celebration, love, and support for the movie.

So starting Monday, I will be counting down the release date of That Awkward Moment by posting stories about awkward moments that I've experienced throughout my life. I maybe young but I do have plenty of awkward stories to tell.

Enjoy the ride and be sure to go to the movies and watch That Awkward Moment when it hits the theater.
