There was a quote I found, by Brigitte Nicole, that state’s “Don’t underestimate me. I know more than I say, think more than I speak, and notice more than you realize.”
Okay, so this is officially my first post. I think it made another one for me with instructions. I was supposed to edit it, and I didn’t want to, but never went back to delete. So, this could technically be my second post, and my first post probably sounds like an odd drunk rant. So, with the first impression out of the way, Namaste.
The point of the name is to tell people that I’m you’re everyday girl in Jersey, stuck in my 30’s on the cusp of Gen X switching over to the Millennials. And yes, I’m from the shore, and no, it’s not like that. People do anything once you put a camera on them that wouldn’t happen normally. Plus, I’ve lived in many areas of Jersey, not just the shore, and it’s a great state and I wouldn’t leave it for the world. That, and you’re not going to find pictures of me all over the internet, with my smiling face photo-bombing everywhere I go, pictures of the food I eat, or act like I’m some sort of celebrity on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or whatever else our culture prides itself on using to make everyday people somehow confuse themselves as a Hollywood starlet. I’m not anybody, and don’t want to be. More importantly, I know I’m not anybody, and I know you don’t care what my breakfast looked like.
Anyway, I’m just like you. Only I have a story to tell. I’ve been through a lot, seen a lot, and have a lot of knowledge and insight to share. When I was very young, I always said that when I died, I wanted to change one person’s life. Just one person, for the better. This is the quest to do that. And I’m not going to throw a bunch of moral dribble or talk all about God or try to sell you an idea like you have to believe it. This is going to be fun, I promise 🙂
It may sound like a bunch of complaining at first, but I’m not. I laugh as I write it. It’s hard to tell emotion from words on a screen (but I will try my best) and almost every time I write, I encourage the reader to take a grain of salt, and see the humor. Of course, I may get into more serious things as well. But maybe the fact that I have such a fun personality and promise to make it fun for you, you will stick around if such darker stuff arises. Because, like I said, I have a story to tell.
The second reason I chose the name Normal Nobody is the pun of it. Everyone is a some one. And none of us are normal.
“Life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think.”
Some one told me that was Shakespeare. It’s not. It’s by Jean de La Bruyere, which is a lot harder to say than Shakespeare, but I got to give it to the right guy.
