A few pages are out of order here. The ‘next’ link goes to page 10. And page 9 didn’t link to page 10 either.
Whups! Thanks for pointing that out! I set the date for page 10 for july instead of june but it’s fixed now! Thanks!
Bigfoot is both singular and plural, like the word sheep or fish. But also saying Bigfoots is accepted but not grammatically correct.
You know, he’s got a point. “Normal” isn’t necessarily what it’s cracked up to be, even though so many of us want to be that way. Of course, defining it in any MEANINGFUL way is pretty difficult, when it comes to people and society.
All I want to know about “normal” is how I can NOT be it! I grew up with the motto “Why Be Normal?” Nobody has yet given me a reasonable answer to it, so FUKKIT!
Wear your pants as a hit and yodle thru town
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS NORMAL. Seriously.
Normal = Setting on the clothes dryer.
For everything/body else… Fuggedaboudit.
No, no. All physics majors know that you are normal if you’re perpendicular to the ground. Therefore anyone standing is normal!
Does that mean I’m abnormal cause I’m lying down?
It’s a parallel concept.
Hm. I just noticed that on Page 5 Michelle says she couldn’t have survived the first few weeks without Merial, but here Michelle is saying her biggest concern the last week was finding her classes…
I might be wrong about this (esp. since I’ve never had to live in dorms), but why would that be her biggest concern if a few weeks already passed? Wouldn’t that week of finding classes have happened a few weeks past already? Or do you stay around the dorm for a few weeks before even starting classes?
At the college I went to, I usually moved into my dorm about a week before classes started. It might be a bit unusual to define two weeks as “a few”, but it would be a legitimate usage.
colleges often have the freshmen come in maybe two weeks early for orientation. that way you make friends and get to know the campus before classes start
After a while you realize that trying to be like everybody else is not the way to go. You’re who and what you are, and that’s a gift from God or whoever or whatever you believe in. You’re an individual. Hmm, I wonder how many Otherkin readers you might have?
Wow comments on this page are a bit preachy.
Deal with it.
As dreams go “being normal” is probably the wimpiest and the worst.
I saw a TED talk in which the speaker asked “What if the best compliment you could get is ‘You’re so normal!’?”.
Damn you, grammar. Yer makin muh punctshwaishun be weer’d.
I feel like she would not be so hung up on being “normal” if the others weren’t so damn blase about the whole thing.
They’ve had years to get used to it, and Jim has been a gryphon his whole life. This is their normal.
