It's normal to have several credit cards. It's normal to charge most purchases and pay them back when convenient (if ever).
It's fairly normal to buy a Starbucks beverage (or 2) four or five or seven days a week. I know a few people at my office that do. Do you know how much money that is?!?!
My husband and I used to go to movies at the theater every single week (gee I wonder why we've so much debt). He grew up doing this. When he spent time with his dad on the weekends it was always at the theater. This was normal.
More and more its becoming normal to experience life through a screen. We don't see the places we travel to anymore. We photograph them with our phones. We don't watch events we attend anymore. We record them with our phones. We don't talk to people we're spending time with anymore. We text them with our phones. (you know you've texted someone sitting at the same table with you, or just in another room of your home. You are NOT normal if you haven't) Heaven forbid we speak to strangers at the store or the bus stop. We can just text people we know. Meet new people??? NO! That movie wall-e came out in 2008 and those space people seemed insane. Now with the advancement of cell phone technology we're actually quite close to living just like they did. All we need are those floating chairs (and in most cases a few more pounds).
It's normal at least television shows, movies, and commercials would have one believe to purchase new shoes once or twice a month, to get a new cell phone two times a year, to buy a brand new car every year or two. Buying, having, getting, consuming, and not interacting is normal.
I think it's Dave who says it often: Normal is Nuts!
I don't want to be normal. I don't want to raise a normal kid. I don't want to do things as we're told we should be doing them or to live life the way everyone else does. Lets be weird folks! (I know alot of people who are reading this blog are already weirdos... props to you all!) Thinking to myself today and asking you as well, what "normal" thing might you be doing that's actually nuts? There's always room for change.
… Being implies change, i.e.… being is becoming. Living structures can be only if they become; they can exist only if they change. Change and growth are inherent qualities of the life process.
