Being Anomalous

What does “anomalous” mean?

The definition I like the best is, “deviating from what is standard, normal or expected.” It is such a beautiful word to describe being different. In our society, especially for young people, being different is the worst thing that can happen to you. People would rather be invisible than not fit in. Sure, I get the validity of being self-conscious. It’s perfectly normal. And being scared sucks. But what some people don’t realize is that you can choose to be neither. As soon as you stop caring about what other people think the world just opens up to you.

I first came across this word in high school. I found this word and I was in love with it. I obsessed over it for six months and on my 18th birthday I went out and got it tattooed on me. For me, turning 18, finishing high school, and turning a new chapter in my life was defined by this word. It was this time in my life that I truly embraced be different. I thought being different made me worse because guys picked the normal girls over me, or I didn’t succeed at regular things. I was letting being different make me miserable instead of happy.

These days, I’m anomalous and proud of it. I’m happy every day. I only wish everyone was able to feel what I feel. And that’s what this blog is about. It’s about standing out, doing crazy things, doing insanely lame things, being alone, being with friends, being content and just being happy no matter what.
