My (Weirdo) Life

Updated: Sep 28, 2019

To be clear, this is not Ohio

Just before I turned forty, I pledged to go “full out weirdo.” I’ve been working on it, and I think I’m doing a pretty damn good job so far. I’d like to share my progress with you, and I plan to do so here.

I used to blog about my monthly observations, and I miss doing so because writing—even unedited, stream-of-thought writing—offers a bit of clarity and perspective on our crazy world. Ironically, when I came back to Ohio to be nearer family and save a bit of money (the psychology attached to which, let me tell you, has been interesting), my blogging stopped. A lot of things stopped, actually.

So here I am again, after a few years away from regular blogging, and I’ll be posting weekly about my weirdo life, writing, yoga and meditation, and all the things that struck me as strange, sad, or wonderful from the week before. These posts will be short and strange. That’s about all I can guarantee.

I might reflect on world events. I might include a yoga video or a writing prompt.

I might just ramble incessantly about … say … the time warp of a restaurant I happened upon last night in an Ohio town called Upper Arlington. Known for its liver and onions, this restaurant has a “lighter side” menu that includes a cheeseburger or steak sandwich. Cinnamon rolls are served alongside regular rolls with iceberg lettuce, and the restaurant lighting is dim enough that no one can really see the food. Or each other. When the server yells at you, it feels as though you are being welcomed to the family. Eating there feels like an exercise of universal trust, and ...

In other words, I might also just reflect on my Ohio life and day-to-day adventures.

I hope you’ll join me. xo Jen
