"Is it weird in here, or is it just me?" --Steven Wright

I've always been weird. As a little girl I much preferred my own company and had a very hard time understanding my peers. I had very few friends but I had no problem at all keeping myself entertained with magazine clippings, construction paper and glue.

In my teen years, my weirdness started to really come through in my fashion. I wore fake nerd glasses looooong before it was cool. I wore tiaras, thrifted sports jerseys with mini skirts, men's neck ties and customized my clothes with paint and markers.

By then I knew I was weird and accepted it. I was picked on but I never fought back but I never backed down from being who I was. The other kids finally grew bored with picking on me a learned to accept me. I never tried to change who I was - I wasn't proud of it or even striving to be weird.
That's just who I was and I didn't know how to be anyone else.

Me and my daughter

In my early 20s I had a sudden awareness of my weirdness and I was ashamed. At that point in my life I was surrounded by total norm-core adults in a cubicle job at very nice bank with a strict dress code. I stood out so much that I was embarrassed to be me. I began to dress more conservatively to look more like them tried my darnedest to hide my quirks. I didn't do well. After moving to another position in the company I found myself being picked on for being odd. YES! Picked on by grown women!

Soon I had enough of being treated like poo for being different. I put in my two weeks notice and quit with a smile on my face. In my unemployment time I  began to regain my identity and learned to love myself again. I finally got my first boyfriend, a guy that loved me for me and who was just as strange as me. We married a year later and six years down the road we have two kooky toddlers that clearly have picked up our weird DNA. We're one weird happy family!
