57 Ways to Say Weird

8 years ago

No matter how you phrase it, anything out of the norm (whatever that is) earns you one of many similar monikers. Odd. Weird. Unique. Different. Quirky. Abnormal. 

Here, that is not a curse. Being odd has no negative connotations in my world. Nor should it in yours.

If anything, differences highlight the very essence of our human condition. A room full of wire-haired, sallow scientists may come up with a way to clone my body, but all those things that define me can never be replicated.

This blog is dedicated to the off-beat, absurd, and quirky women who could care less about being normal, and instead, strive to just be uniquely themselves. Comfortable in our own skins, we seek to connect with other odd-balls, not in attempt to create a new conformity, but rather to relish in our differences.

Don't get me wrong, this is not a call to arms or a guide to being different for-the-sake-of-being-different. This is just about me, letting myself think, act, and feel how I want to feel without my inner-critic shouting "that's not normal!" If you wish to join me, so be it. If not, you are welcome to stand on the sideline and mock me, if that's what you really want to do :-)
