#BehindTheBlogger -- Where do I belong?

#BehindTheBlogger -- Where do I belong?

I've been debating ever since I got this prompt, what direction to take this.

There are MANY ways to take it. I could keep it to the blog and explain my niche. I could make a personal revelation about myself, that could either break what readership I have or bring in a slew of readers. I could go religious and explain why I strayed from the church I was born into... which I may still do a post about, away from this blog hop.

However, I'm not going to do any of them... at least not right now.

So, Where do I belong?

Well, to tell you the truth, I don't know.

I don't feel like I fit in with my peers. Back in school, I tried SO hard to fit in with the crowd. I mean, Don't get me wrong; I had my own thoughts, my own opinions, my own feelings. But, I never really went 'against the grain.' I did the same things 85% of my school mates did: My music tastes ran from Nelson, Def Leppard and Guns'N'Roses to Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson, with some Boyz II Men, Oasis, and the 90's 'Boy Bands' mixed in for good measure. I dressed the same as they did. I watched the same 'Teenage Drama' TV shows they did (#TeamBrandonWalshForever). I went to the same school events they did. I knew being disabled was working against me as it was, so I tried to be as normal as possible.

But as I aged, I started drifting from the peers. When most kids were listening to Hanson and The Bloodhound Gang and collecting Pokemon, I was listening to country and getting interested in technology. I didn't like The O.C. or Felicity... I was watching Daria and Scrubs. I went from trying to copy the fashion of the year to the style of 'Whatever fit me.'

Now that I'm in my mid-heading-to-late 30s, I'm not into ANYTHING that the people in my age bracket are into. I still wear whatever fits me. I listen to the music I grew up with (Matter of fact, as I type this up, I'm listening to 'Shoop' by Salt & Pepa). I have never seen an episode of Game Of Thrones, and the only Walking Dead I'm interested in has Clementine, not Daryl Dixon.

That's not to say I don't like some modern stuff too. I play the Candy sagas. I like 'Rude' by Magic!, Meghan Trainor, and I believe in Gay Marriage.

So, Where do I belong?

Right where I am... and I'm perfectly happy with that.
