Hi everyone! Or, most likely at this point, no one. This is a blog. I'm not exactly sure what having a blog entails; I didn't think about it much before starting one up. I assume this is a place for me to share my thoughts, rant about whatever strikes my fancy, and otherwise imagine that people might actually care about what I have to say.
If anyone out there actually happens to stumble upon this and (by some small miracle) enjoys it, be forewarned that I am fairly attention deficit, a huge procrastinator, and all around lazy, so the chances of me regularly updating are slim to none. But you surely don't care about that at this point; I haven't even said anything interesting (yet?).
So I'm feeling a smidgen guilty about the title, "Strayed Past the Norm," because I happen to have an uncle named Norm, so this is a play on his name. He's not particularly special to me, in the sense that I specifically wanted to dedicate my blog title to him; it just happened to work out that way. As I said, I didn't think about my blog much before signing up to have one, so I panicked when I had to come up with a title. I'm sorry, Norman. If you ever start a blog and want to use this clever wordplay I've created, I will give up my title rights (maybe).
Today my mom is bringing my three-year-old brother over to my dorm to hang out with me while she goes cavorting with some guy who has a house on a lake. I have no idea how to keep a three-year-old entertained for three-and-a-half hours on a college campus. Wish me luck. Maybe there'll be material from this to motivate me to make another post.
Okay, thanks for your time (if you're actually there),
