Weird Things About Me | Part 2



Hey Guys x

Back in March, I wrote a post called : 'Weird Things About Me' and a lot of you guys seemed to really like that!

Originally, this post was called 'Normal'. However, after writing it, I saw that it turned into another post where I tell you all of the abnormal things about me. So I decided to just make it a 'part 2' of the first weird post.

I'm not normal.

That's such a weird thing to say but I'm saying it nonetheless.

Because, what does normal actually mean?

Dictionary.com defines normal as someone who conforms to the standard or common type. In other words, someone who does what everyone else is doing so that they don't get pinpointed as being different. As standing out.

Now, I'm not the most confident person, at all, and I don't really want to stand out. I don't do anything to purposefully stand out.

However, I'm so different to practically everyone else that I know, that I could never be described as normal.

For example, I prefer to read books than to go out clubbing.

I play Sims a lot more than I should.

If you're not someone I like, I don't really want to socialise with you.

I hold grudges. I hold them for so long that you'll forget who I am, and I'll still be hating you.

I prefer 90s music to the music of today.

I obsess over youtubers and movies and actors rather than rappers and dancers.

I feel like I was born in the wrong era.

I'd rather have children than have a career.

I'm writing this blog post even though I should be revising because blogging means a lot to me.

I can't accept the fact that I may never write a book.

I smile at people I don't know, just because I can.

I'm easy to ignore. If the last 7 years at school and college have taught me anything, they've taught me that.

I've spent the last few weeks watching movies that Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans have been in because I'm currently obsessed with both of them.

I'm not very good at making decisions.

I get jealous. A lot. I can't turn it on or off because I don't know how.

My blog and wattpad accounts are two of the only things in my life that I'm actually proud of. Because they come directly from me.

My brain is my favourite place to be. No matter where I am, my sarcastic thoughts and ability to daydream on cue constantly make me smile.

My anxiety is worse than I let on.

That's just a few things that make me less normal than other people.

I never try to stand out, but I always do, and hardly ever for the right reasons. To be honest, I'm more noticed for the things that I don't say rather than for the things that I do.

And honestly, I'm so eager to leave this part of my life behind - to forget who I've been for the past 7 years, that leaving the education system in two weeks doesn't feel as scary as it should.

It feels... relieving. After 7 years, I can finally be who I am. And I can't wait!

Thank you for reading

Comment below weird things about you so I know that I'm not alone!

Keep Smiling - Lou xx

  1. I love this post so much!! To be honest it's great that we're all a little weird ;) Weird is good <3 I personally feel the same with wanting to move on. I'm going to school but sometimes I just feel like I want to get out and go somewhere new where I can find who I really am.

  4. I think, that things considered normal are those, that people admit of being or doing, and for some reason many have this impression, that if an opinion is not voiced, that it either doesn't exist or isn't common.

    But this normal is boring. I find many of your "not normal" things better and more realistic than what's commonly accepted. I mean, obsessing over actors seems the most obvious thing to do, whereas dancers? I don't even know any, except for "that bald guy with a funny surname". And I remember watching a movie, where the main character wanted to live in the 20s. I think the title was Midnight in Paris..

    Weird is better. It's what makes people write books or invent stuff. If you're not standing out, how can you ever make a difference?

    As for my weirdness... o_O
    When I daydream, I actually just think up fanfiction, but almost never write any of it down, because it feels too personal.
    I only listen to soundtracks, and if by accident I'm aware of any "normal" music, it's because my sister was listening to it long enough for me to remember.
    And I barely know any celebrities' names, but still know many of the lyrics of their songs (if it's a musician).
    I also don't know most of my neighbours, which is embarrassing, because they knew me growing up. xD
