20 of the Reasons Why I Am An Atypical Teenager

I decided to copy some of my blogger
friends by making illustrations in Paint.
This is actually a very true-to-life

  1. I don't pay mind to fashion trends.
  2. I don't own a single article of clothing produced by Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostale, or American Eagle. Go cheap no-name brands.
  3. I don't own a single article of clothing made of denim. No jeans, no overalls, no denim skirts, shirts, or jackets. You're probably wondering now what my wardrobe could possibly consist of. See figure at right.
  4. I don't torture myself with high heels.
  5. I don't pay more to wear less.
  6. My parents become concerned enough to check on me when I sleep past nine, and would probably declare me braindead if I slept much later.
  7. I am perhaps the only human being who is not overly fond of pizza. This can be an inconvenience at social gatherings.
  8. TV? I've heard of it... I think.
  9. I can count on one hand the instances I have played a video game.
  10. I don't have a boyfriend, have never had a boyfriend, and have absolutely no desire to have a boyfriend for quite some time.
  11. I don't own a cell phone.
  12. I frequently engage in conversation with adults, and often find such conversations quite enjoyable. Often more so than those with people of my own age. Though exceptions exist, of course.
  13. I make eye contact.
  14. I have no intentions of ever drinking alcohol, smoking, et cetera.
  15. I have never worn make-up.
  16. My hair care regimen consists of shampooing, rinsing, drying, and brushing.
  17. My ears are not pierced, nor any other body parts.
  18. I possess no desire to drive, and have not made the slightest step toward achieving a permit.
  19. If I did drive, let's just say the results would be... quite frightening. (Oh wait. That's not atypical.)
  20. I cannot walk over a flat, stable, obstacle-free surface without meeting the ground up-close and personal. Gravity loves me, what can I say?
  21. I adore my schooling. One might say I am obsessed, even.
Please note that I don't necessarily frown upon all these things. There's nothing wrong with liking pizza or owning a cell phone. I'm mainly just listing my weirdness.

Do you have any to add? Do any of these apply to you?
And if none do... well, I won't come at you with a baseball bat or anything. ;)


  1. 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 17 all apply to me. 16 would except I don't actually bother brushing. Go atypicalness!

  2. I love the little picture you made. Lots of those things apply to me as well, except I love jeans and denim skirts.


  3. 1-Yes, 2-Yes, 3-Heck no because jeans are my entire wardrobe, 4-Yes, 5-Yes, 6-Haha no, 7-Pizza's okay, 8-I'm never allowed to watch TV on school nights past 7 so I basically never get to watch it, 9-Yes, 10-Yes yes and no-ish, 11-No although I am surprised my mom let me get another one since I sat on my last one, 12-Yes'm, 13-Sometimes, 14-ABSOLUTELY TRUE!, 15-Sadly no, 16-Wait so people do other things to their hair?, 17-Pierced ears, 18-Actually me and my parents were arguing about that today, 19-Well yes, 20-Yes, 21-I like schoolwork but I don't like my teachers/school rules/ID badges/fill in the blank
    That was actually 21 reasons. Do I get a prize for noticing? XD
    (My anti-spam word is "agatroil". Is that really a word? If it isn't, too bad. I'm using it. What does it mean?)

  4. I think, when I was around 13-15 years old, the vast majority of these things applied to me, except for the part about pizza. I love pizza. :P I always hated jeans back then, though, until they slowly became the only kind of non-formal pants that I have that fit me.

    And the part about video games. I've played quite a few of those, but I rarely, rarely play any games that didn't exist in the 80s or 90s.

    I've never worn make-up or high heels, either. Or had any piercings. Weird, eh? :P


  5. ZNZ, go atypicalness!

    Beth, hehe, thank you. XD

    Mercy, someone noticed! I actually sorta did that on purpose, since I decided #19 wasn't atypical after all. But for your observance, I hereby award you with the Observant Commenter Award!
    You may show it off on your blog sidebar. Or not at all. xD
    Agatroil. If that's not a word, we've got to make it one. XD

    Ian, never worn make-up or high heels? How odd! :P

  6. 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 20, 21 - YES! All true!
    3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 18, 19 - no...

  7. Yayzez! *hurries to blog sidebar*
    But what does agatroil mean? It sounds like agriculture ... and soil ... and hard work ... hmm ...

  8. Well, I put it on my blog, and, um, can you make it smaller? Like, a lot? I'm leaving it up till you can see it because it's really large. And strange. O.o

  9. Hmm... maybe it means farmwork, then? Or something of the like? Maybe just hard labor?

    Whoa, that thing is huge. O.o Is there not a shrink to fit option for it? Well anyway, here's a smaller version: If it's still too big let me know.


A blog without comments is a lonely place.
