About Onward & Awkward

Welcome to Onward & Awkward, a place for exploring the everyday awkwardness that comes with being human. The O&A journey is starting in 2021, a year which has a few of its own quirks, but is on the heels of a year that rattled even the most unflappable amongst us.

This site is not a response to the craziness of this moment we’re slowly emerging from, but I do hope it offers some sense of community and commonality after one heck of an isolating year. We may all have our differences, but I think we can all agree (if we’re being honest) there’s going to be a lot of awkwardness as we figure out this new normal. Might as well embrace it.
