Something for Awkward Girls Everywhere

If you've ever in your life been the opposite of cool (you know, said the wrong thing because you didn't know what to say, stood silently and grinned like a weirdo because you didn't know what to do, etc) you'll totally get The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, a webseries by Issa Rae. And I guess if you're super cool and always know how to charm your way through the most awkward of situations you can watch it too.

I'm so bummed this series only has five episodes so far - and I have to wait a whole month for the next one! - because this chick (Issa Rae) and this cast is seriously funny, especially the other awkward people she comes across. For more episodes or to watch from the beginning, check out her site.
If you only watch one more episode definitely look at episode 4: "The Icebreaker," which includes - from our protagonist's best friends rap - the following lyric:

Issa: I'm like Saved By the Bell--

CeCe: And I'm California Dreams

Any show that includes random references to the corny 90's teen shows of my youth is fine by me!


  1. "Does this girl live in the hallway?" HAHAH I love this - thanks for the link!

  2. HILARIOUS!!!! Wow, never heard of her before but she is awesome!!! THanks!

  3. Glad you guys got a kick out of it. I hadn't heard of her before Friday myself (but I'm so officially a fan now.)
