"Well, that's not normal."This is a phrase we hear on a nearly daily basis, be it on the news, print media or from our very own lips. This simple, carelessly uttered phrase got me really thinking about 6 years ago. So I started the Semi-Abnormal Chronicles back in college (on Xanga.com) to share my daily thoughts and adventures, where I not only explored living "outside of the norm" but embraced it.
So, join me as I continue to explore this wonderfully mixed up, messed up world, no longer in search of being "normal" but loving what it means to be ME: the a semi abnormal gal, Jess.
