HI!!! My name is Brittany and it’s cool you’re here!

I’m an aspiring humorist, baker, and homesteader lady-person that writes about supporting your self because DAMN, isn’t life weird? But mostly, I’m just a Midwestern girl in my twenties who now lives in the PNW and is trying to figure this whole life thing out.

Awkward Asshole is the brainchild of my uber-talented BFF Shelby Graam. Sometime in 2012 she started illustrating hilarious comics based on my life. They were much needed reminders for how I can be totally ridiculous and kind of an asshole at times. She continues to show me how to find humor and acceptance in the parts of myself I struggle with. She also gave me the perfect theme for this blog.

I WRITE in an attempt to write myself into well-being. There should be no stigmas about sharing experiences that have shaped who we are and who we are becoming. I want to live an examined life. After all, what is more interesting than understanding yourself as a human being?

I SHARE in an attempt to create a dialogue and connect with others. We are never alone! Thanks for being here and sharing your life with me. Life is hard and awkward. The only thing I know for certain is that being able to laugh at yourself makes life a hell of a lot easier.
