Yes. Yes I am.
In fact, I’m writing this whilst drinking my peach no-bubbles Fanta at Burger King where I am alone with just this drink.
People that don’t know me too well say that I’m weird and people that know me a bit better say that I’m random. I guess that comes from the same spectrum so that transition makes sense.
I am random and that is exactly the reason to why this blog is called random chipmunk – the second part is because of my cheeks.
My teacher said this name was not searchable but look at PewDiePie. As long as you are passionate and make good content, everything is searchable. I won’t change it. I like it.
A question that I’ve always asked myself is if weird in actually a bad thing. Is it?
I don’t think so. I think weird makes me interesting…although…weird. Random is kind of a consequence of that. I like to be a spontaneous planner. I also like to lead people into seeing the issue into a different perspective.
I guess it’s also part of me being creative. Creative is about brainstorming and idea generation and creation. I am random so, I have all kinds of ideas and I love it. Also, I don’t get bored too often as I keep myself busy with these ideas.
It’s great to be weird and random.
However, it can be quite difficult to socialize when you are like this. I try to adopt a ‘normal self’ every time I am in a new environment and it can be a while until I reveal that unique side of me, worrying about what others think.
My personality motto is ‘Primeiro estranha-se, depois entranha-se’ (Fernando Pessoa). Meaning, first you may think it’s weird but then you start liking it.
It is also one of the reasons to why I find it very hard to be very good friends with someone or even date. Side affects I would say.
I am not really sure why I am the way I am but I’m glad to be this way. I have never had someone telling me my personality reminds them of someone else. It’s awesome but also bad at some occasions.
Isn’t that the case with everything?
