20 Things Every Abnormal Person Needs to Do

{By Ellery Sadler}

I would not describe myself as “normal” or “typical”

… this list proves why (I’ve done almost everything on here – the crazier ones are a yes). And neither are you. Because no one is normal. “Normal” is a false construct we create to make ourselves feel safe, comfortable, ok-with-ourselves and just well, normal. But let’s skip the false construct and be real here – safe and normal can be boring, and who likes boring? (If you do, you might want to be reading a different blog). So do some cool and weird and crazy things. Like these. I dare you to.
