"Well, That was awkward!" middle school is filled with embarrassing moments… how do you deal? What was your most embarrassing moment in middle school?

Middle School is FILLED with tons of embarrassing and uncomfortable moments. If I had a dollar for every time that I said something stupid or tripped in front of a cute boy, I would be rich. Although it can be very hard, in times of embarrassment it is important to shake it off and laugh at yourself for your mistakes. Everyone has some silly and awkward moments sometimes, and it's crucial to remember that. Whenever you're feeling embarrassed, think about how everyone feels the exact same way about the same little things.

One of my most embarrassing moments in middle school was passing notes in class- keep in mid, this was before we all had cell phones to text each other. My friend and I were talking about going to town after school and the cute boys in our class. My teacher saw the notes, took them, and read them, teasing us for writing about boys. Everyone else in the class saw us get in trouble and I thought I was going to be teased forever. However, that was not the case. I tried my best to laugh it off, and eventually, everyone else did too. I think everyone even forgot about the entire thing the week after. Because of this awkward and embarrassing moment, I learned to laugh it off and not make a big deal out of my mistakes. Everyone messes up here and there, and learning from the things you have done is the best thing you can do. Now I know to never pass notes in class and stay more engaged- although no one really passes notes anymore :).
