Misfits of the blogs, unite!

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the
round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently —
they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or
vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change
things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the
crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that
they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs

Yeah, you know who you are. You’re the ones who doodle at meetings – and by “doodle” I mean that you probably create an entire new world while you’re sitting there – maybe you do the geometric shapes thing – fill the page up with pentagons and triangles and cool little stars inside the triangles – or maybe you create a fantasy world of snow-capped mountains and flying horses and flora and fauna never before seen by man. By the time the people conducting the meeting have gotten to their nifty little acronyms – GLE, ELAR, STAR, MYD, CIT, LO (if you recognize these, you’ll know what profession I am in) – you’re already deep into your own world, entertaining yourself with whatever it is that puts a grin on your face.

You do not want to be ordered about.  You do not want to be micro-managed. You do not want to be censored, regimented, restricted, collated, and stapled. You have a deep yearning to soar, to climb, to fly unencumbered by “statistics,” “data,” and “market research” and to explore byways and skyways not yet picked apart and researched by those dear cautious souls fearful of taking a step into unknown territory without their “data” in hand.

You yearn for freedom.  You yearn for fun. You learn because you want to. And you’re not afraid to use “to” at the end of a sentence, either…you rebel, you!

  1. Thanks, Ashley, wherever you are! You are my first ever blog “thumbs up”! And welcome to the land of Humoristia – the Holy See of the Humoristian church – sort of like Vatican City, but without the Pope. Or the actual buildings and stuff. Or an actual location on an actual map. Okay, and we don’t so much have the same place in history as the Catholic church – in the spirit of truthiness, I have to admit that we’ve only been around since August 20, 2007. But let’s remember that four years can be a really long time if you’re, like, a fruitfly.

    I hope you’ll join us again!

  2. I love that Misfits quote. I think it fits Humoristianity to a Tee. Or is that T? I’m too tired to think about tees. And t’s. It’s so confusing.

    Wait, how’d ya know I doodle? Are you the one that swiped my notebook? Hrm….
