    Would I Be Normal Elsewhere?

    I live in a little village. This village is full of oil industry commuters, people who think shopping is a recreational pastime and has one pub which only has steak or pork on the menu. I am a vegan(ish) eco-friendly, would-be hippy who likes to shop second hand and...

    How does anyone expect me being normal again?  If you don't like my normal then deal with it!  I try being as normal as I can and do my best of my ability.  No one is 100% normal, anyway!

    No, I'm not. Even if I wanted to be normal,

    I couldn't. I never really caught onto the definition of 'normal' anyway. Really, what is normal?

    You want me to normal, be like everybody else. Do what they do, listen to their music, dress like them, be a regular girl who just follows the trends. Umm, how about hell no? Being normal is boring and I hate it. Why won't you let me be myself, Mom?

    My Past Is Crippling Me

    You Don't know me, and that's a good thing. I'm a wife and a mother of 2, my life seems very normal and happy on the outside, even to my husband and Children. Sadly, though, inside my head I'm in a constant struggle with myself and I feel like I'm trapped. Thats the only way I...

    When I was about 18 my elder sister bluntly

    said to me that I had to act more normal. I was baffled, although I was aware that I had always been at the edge of any circle of friends and actually preferred to have long bouts on my own, I thought I was as "normal" as I could. Besides, my parents never raised the issue. 20...

    What Is It!?

    What is with people! Everyone I know keeps telling me I should do this or that, or shouldn't this be the case - what they want, what they percieve of me. Well, sorry, but I am my own person and I'm going to do this my own way! It's my life, not theirs! If they care...

    What You See Is What You Get

    Sorry, But I'm what you see is what you get at the moment or any moment. I have many interests and more then a few studies. I enjoy lots of things Ball room dance to Martial arts, herbs to metal working, surf and sailing. Never try to put me in a box I'll never fit.

    I'm Not

    I'm not just saying this because I want to "feel different" either. It's obvious to me I'll never be normal to certain people. So If you don't like me... Too bad.

    No Such Thing

    "Normality"?? The only form of that is diversity. Sure some of us, (like myself,) are just little kids, perhaps even just toddlers/babies, at Heart, but who gives a fresh grown corn cob??!! I want to be a Ninja who can deliver pizzas And race competitions on a dragon-shaped...

    Uhhh.... Just What Does That Even Mean Anymore?

    Normal? I thought that was only defined in theory. Never actually in reality.  It's not normal to be normal if you ask me.  The whole snowflake argument comes to m ind.  No two alike... I am not abnormal. Unconventional? Perhaps? I hate semantics. Definitions can be so...

    So What Exactly Is Normal?

    Yes, That is the question i often ask people when they tell me to act and be normal. I then reply by saying that normal is relative to what all the other people around you are expected to act like and what may seem normal to some may not be so normal to others. "So...

    If I End Up In Hell, At Least I'll Be Familiar With It...

    As far as I can remember I haven't been a 'normal' person.  Prone to fits of rage, selfishness, confusion, hyper- and hypo-activity, elation and depression that pulls me down so far I don't even want to try to get out.  But I always do, at least part of the way - enough to...

    Not In My Dna

    Normal is not a gene on my DNA double helix, don't get me wrong. For a while back in middle school and high school - I wanted to be normal. I wanted that badly at the time because it was impossible for me to be able to conform. I tried but it just wasn't my nature. I was and...

    Put Your Analyst On Danger Money Baby.

    I've never said normality exists. Its a comparative. Average instead perhaps. I love my eclectic friends. I suspect that the more intelligent you are the more fractal reality can become. None of them are normal, most with issues beyond the dreams of analysts, and all highly...

    Everyone is weird in the eyes of another. No one is normal to another so therefore everyone is normal to be abnormal.

    Well I Thought That I Was Normal

    But according to all of the wierd people I know, I am not at all normal. Go figure... So, yeah I'm not the normal typical American teenage girly type you would find in my town. Maybe I am a little different, or strange, or whatever. But thats me.
