I saw a question recently that asked "Would you rather be normal or weird?"
A lot of people answered normal. Even if I had wanted to say normal it would not be the truth because what is normal? Is it a label to define someones actions? Maybe a description of the way one culture tends to behave? Google says that it is "conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected"
I have never and will never be normal.
Yes, I may make awkward jokes and funny faces. I may be the person doing the robot on the dance floor. I may laugh too much and even laugh at the fact that I am laughing... but I never find myself wishing that I had just stayed silent. That I should have danced like everyone else, that maybe I should tone it down.
I have too much fun for that.
Lucky for me I found my very own group of weirdo's!
They understand and embrace my urge to spaz out every now and then. They join in my ridiculousness. We share amazingly creative snapchats. We then save those snapchat's to make one very interesting album of photos. We have endless amounts of shenanigans which maybe, if you stay tuned, I will fill you in on!
usual, typical, or expected
To some those words stand for comfort, and in lot's of ways it is nice to have a person who is all of those things. For me personally, I don't want anyone to feel like they can write the ending to my book while i'm still breathing. I want to be full of surprises and excitement. I will dare to be different. I will live my life to the fullest while enjoying as much of it as I possibly can. I will choose weird.
So, if you are hiding your inner weirdo, please know that you are not alone... and also you should probably let it out! Live a little! Have fun!
