I suppose in some places, I could be considered eccentric. An unmarried 30-year-old (on Wednesday!) woman, who is left-leaning, uninterested in having children, has a career in the evaluation and research of programs serving victims of violence, with a boyfriend in Europe, spending her vacations in far flung destinations, living in an apartment without a television (gasp!), and eating out way more than cooking in.
Yeah, maybe in some places. But I happen to be living in a city where I’m right in the mainstream, and probably am even on the boring side of the mainstream. It’s really all about your perspective, right? You do what you need to do, and you find the place where you feel like you can do it to the fullest. I was reminded of that this morning when I was reading The Bold Soul‘s blog. What is eccentric to some, is perfectly normal to others. I strongly believe that we all need to find that place for ourselves and keep on living it.
Lots more eccentricity at Sunday Scribblings.
