In some aspects of my life, I am very mainstream. I live in the suburbs. I drive a Chevy. I have a stainless steel fridge. In other ways, I feel outside the norm but I am Okay with it. Quilters are not the norm in any society and I am proud to be outside the regular path. I like black and green olives and I am not ashamed. I don't have a middle name and I have accepted it about myself. But there are other ways which being mainstream has escaped me and I wish it hadn't. I think to rectify this I need to start somewhere. I've decided I need to watch more TV.
People post on Facebook about shows they watch. I feel out of it. The only talked about show I do watch is Downton Abbey and yet knowing I am behind all of England on it only further reinforces my out of the loop feelings.
Here they are, 8 ways in which I am NOT mainstream and I want to be! How about you? Anything you wish you had in common with your fellow human beings?
