Embarrassing Moments


We have all had those moments where our faces turned bright red, and all we wanted to do was hide in a corner and pretend like nothing ever happened. After some time, though, our embarrassing moments become quite amusing and are quickly developed into stories that we laughingly share. I am constantly embarrassing myself, and I have more embarrassing stories that I can even count. However, for the sake of your reading (and my reputation) I have narrowed it down to 4 embarrassing moments that I will share today, so I hope you enjoy…

“Maybe a hundred bad days made a hundred good stories
A hundred good stories make me interesting at parties”

“100 Bad Days” song by AJR

/Parking Problem/  

It was only the first or second week of school, and I did an absolutely terrible parking job (crooked and literally on the line) right in front of the building. Then, another car came and parked on the other side of me which completely pinned my car in. I got dangerously close to the cars with every attempt that I made to move, and the driver of the other car paid no attention to me. I hollered out my window to get some random kid to help because I was desperate and had to get to class. Considering how big our campus is, I thought I would never see him again, but he happens to be in my English class this semester. We are actually really good friends now, but it is never ideal to be remembered by lack of parking skills when you formally meet someone for the first time.

“Oh, I remember you…” 


“Walking” on a Red Carpet

I made a grand entrance to my first prom by nearly face planting and tripping twice on the red carpet… I will admit that I constantly trip in the hallways at school, stores, and pretty much everywhere else, but who trips going into prom?

Direct Flight

I was at lunch with a group of people that I had just met, and we didn’t know each other very well. We decided to eat outside, and less than 10 minutes passed before a bug flew directly into my eye. I didn’t make a very big deal as I tried to handle it myself, but everyone was at the table started freaking out as they caught sight of my eye. All I will say is that it was a big bug. The waitress even ran over to see why they were all so upset as I quickly/embarrassingly fled to the bathroom to wash out my eye. It was swollen, red, and burning for the remainder of the day... Talk about embarrassing! Honestly, I still cringe at this memory.

Where Is All The Popcorn?

Please tell me that I am not the only one who almost always drops popcorn down my shirt at the movie theater…

Can you relate to any of these? Which moment did you find the most amusing? Feel free to drop some of YOUR embarrassing memories in the comments below (if you would like to). Also, photo credits to my friend, Claire! I know this has nothing to do with the theme of the post, but I still thought I would share because it is a pretty neat capture of my rehearsal. Have a fantastic week, and thanks for reading this lengthy post!

  1. Those are great! Yes, we definitely all have those moments. Sometimes I drop my metal water bottle at school and it is so loud, everyone looks, and I think I heard some gasp one time, so I understand. 😀

    1. Oh my gosh, I have definitely done that too.
      I have even dropped a water bottle that didn’t have the cap on securely, and water literally spilled everywhere. That was fun, haha. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing, and I am so glad that you liked this post!

  2. On my first day of pre-professional dance classes, I attempted a pirouette from fourth (at my school pirouettes are taught from second and then fourth and fifth), somehow ended up doing a super fast double, and then landed on my behind with a thump…and when I looked up, everyone was staring at me…and then they started clapping. I was so surprised and confused I blushed like I hadnnever blushed before. (Later, the teacher explained to me that falling is part of learning, and that dancers usually clap when another one falls while learning something).
    I’ve fallen many times since then, but I’ll never forget that first class, haha.
    You’re not alone…I, too, always end up with popcorn down my shirt, and it’s so annoying.

    1. Aw, I could see why you were confused when everyone clapped, but you are not alone with falling! I have fallen many times, but its always good to get back up and try again. Like you said, falling is part of the learning process, but it can be quite embarrassing too.
      Yay!! I am so happy to hear that someone else has that same problem with popcorn. 🙂 I loved reading your embarrassing memory, so thank you so much for sharing!

      Oh no, these are definitely not the worst of my embarrassing moments! These are simply the ones that I am willing to publicly share with the world… I am so glad that you enjoyed this post, and I appreciate your awesome comment. 🙂

  4. Once I read a quote which said “If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to laugh about when you’re old” so appreciate these dumb moments 😀
