I remember somebody once signed my year book. “You’re really weird, but I like you anyway!”
I dont know if I was more offended or hurt. A) I was weird..annnnd the connotation behind that isn’t a positive one. And B) apparently being weird usually makes people unlikable. As I have matured (like a good aged cheese) I have realized that my weirdness is what sets me apart in the best of ways. I’ve found people like me and I love my little weirdo tribe! I wouldn’t trade my weirdies for the world! Because these are the people that are happy! These are the people who know who they are and what they like. These are the people I like to surround myself around! I wasn’t happy with those ‘normal’ people anyway.
Embrace your originality. Embrace your WEIRD, because it is so wonderful! Also, if you don’t share your weird how the heck am I supposed to know if we are best friends or not?
So, Hi! I’m Rachel. I am weird. I enjoy all things nerdy. I have some weird obsession with honey, key lime pies, and tacos. I have a slightly co-dependent unhealthy relationship with my best friend. I only own 3 pairs of socks. I don’t know the lyrics to any of the songs I sing. I mean ANY of the lyrics. I can sprout off random ‘fun’ facts. I like to dress up and do Richard Simmons work out videos and themed parties to celebrate Tuesdays. Here is my bright weirdo light. I’m shining it. I’m waving my flag! Come!
