N is for Normal (NO!)



Normal is subjective.  Normal is relative.  Normal is something I hope I'll NEVER be.  Normal is one of the worst names you can call me.  To me, normal is boring, conformist, and un-original.  It's everything I AM NOT.

Some people spend thousands of dollars and countless hours of their time trying to be normal.  They want to feel normal and look normal.  They want to be a carbon copy, cookie cutter image of everyone else.


There is beauty in being unique-in being YOU.  Why strive to be something you're not?  Why do so many people want to be an artificial dress up doll in a society of cutouts?

There is truth in honoring how you feel and what you believe in.  There is freedom and joy in following your own path.  I refuse to get in that line of sheeple, those "yes men" and head-nodders.  I will not wear what mass media spews over the airwaves.  I will not agree with the masses and hold my tongue when everything in my soul screams, "NO, that's a LIE!"

These are excerpts from something I recently wrote:

"I'm not your pearl clutcher,
not your Stepford Wife...

I don't want no part of
your cookie-cutter life..

No grey sedans
No minivans...

Gonna shave my head
Dye it Cherry Red..."

Oh, and YES I DID!

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  4. Well said! Normal is a word that shouldn't exist anyways. With so many people in the world, all of them being so different, how can we even define a normal?

    Just stopping by from a-z. :)

  6. Fantastic blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any
    user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I'd really like to be a part of group where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

Go ahead, make my day. Just don't be an asshole. This is a whine-free zone. Wine is always smiled upon though.
