For a good majority of my life I’ve felt a little quirky. Throughout the first 20 years of my life, I’ve gotten asked why I do things the way I do them, or why am I not doing something the way everyone else is doing it, and I used to take offense to it. I’m not a chemically-imbalanced sociopath who’s off their meds; there is a method to my madness and I do put thought into the things I say and do (most of the time at least). Because I think a lot of traditional social etiquette is, well, stupid, my perspective tends to be unpopular. Go figure. Fortunately, I’ve gotten to a good age where being unpopular doesn’t really affect me the way it used to.
This blog is about adding a slightly different perspective onto daily encounters, people, situations, or events, pretty much in a suburban setting. I’m not talking politics or religion, that stuff is just too messy for me. I’m talking about the funny, who gives a crap, social events of everyday life. In this blog, I plan to write about events, that in the grand scheme of things, are so insignificant that I’m bewildered onto why people really give me grief for it. This happens to me a lot. I either find it funny or annoying. I’m sure you’ll catch the undertone depending on the topic of the post.
Don’t take this blog too seriously. In fact, I hope you get a few chuckles from it. And who knows, maybe you’ll gain some perspective or even a new opinion on a topic or two. That’s part of the joy of reading different articles now isn’t it?
