    I know some of you homeschool. We use cloth diapers and baby wear, live in a smaller house than average and have a big family. What makes you "not the norm"?

    Don't have cable or satellite, no internet or land lines. Don't watch the news, or read the paper. I do not "do" commercials, I change the channel or shut it off. I am not on any medication, though some people would like me to be.....

    I do body piercings (since I was 15), have body piercings, don't do drugs or drink even though I'm only 21, homeschool, got married at 19 and haven't killed my hubby yet, paintball, am an excellent cook (according to hubby), hunt (not anymore, hubby was a bad kid enough said), fish, can weld, build stuff, and to top it all off am a Christian saved from suicide, addiction, and other problems by the grace of a Savior I don't deserve. I don't know how not norm that is nowadays, but based on all the other ppl I've met it's not normal. LOL!!!!

    Edited to add: STAY AT HOME MOMMY!!!

    Hmmm, I'm a college student studying to become a medical doctor. I'm also an EMT with a local volunteer squad.

    Other than that, I love the outdoors, I'm very much into fish (Keeping tanks and ponds), I horse back ride, and I love gardening. I also teach several alcohol and drug safety classes here at the school for students who get in trouble for having these sorts of violations. It's a pretty cool job.

    Oh yeah, I'm involved with exotic bird rescue! I work for a bird sanctuary and it's a lot of fun. I have learned so much.

    I'm perfectly normal just like everyone else. [​IMG]
  10. I don't know if this is unusual but here it is. I'm a former woman marine and now am a critical care head nurse and I train my own horses. I'd like to retire from nursing and just have my horse and chicken farm.
