About GirlontheContrary

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.

Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t.

And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would.

You see?

    So I’m trying to find blogs/websites—-whatever you wanna call them—- that would get me going, get me interested. Cuz I’m a noob here on wordpress.com. Anyways I just stopped by and was just wondering (seems I love the word ‘just.’ see if it’s true by going to http://justsarahlaura.weebly.com/) if this blog/website is worth while. Well, of course you would say that but I am in to writing short stories or just random stories and reading fiction, fantasy, mystery… and drawing. So that’s just about it and… what I said just now probably made no sense. But whatever! meh… -_- i failed so badly.

    -You only YOLO once (unless you a Greek monster ;D)

    I, too, share a love of the chili-cheese burrito (used to be called the “Chilito” back in the day). If you ever get up to Michigan, the closest I’ve found from my home in the middle of the state is in Clare and Oscoda. I have to travel 30 minutes one-way just to get my fix in. I say we start a petition to bring it back to all Taco Bell’s, eh?

    Nice blog! I enjoyed it. I think in a former life we could have been soul mates… :)

    I’ve nominated your blog for the Kreativ Blogger Award. While it doesn’t involve a trophy or a giant novelty cheque (I know, it sucks), you do get a funky little image to display on your blog to let readers know how awesome you are. There are a few conditions associated with receiving the award, so have a look here to make sense of it all.

    1. girlonthecontrary says:

      Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It’s better than any novelty check- you can’t even cash those. ;)

    Best Wishes & Happy Holidays

  109. Sandra Bell Kirchman says:

    GotC, wasn’t sure where to put this, so hope this is okay.

    I have picked you to receive The Versatile Blogger award. I received it recently and was thrilled to be able to pass it on to five worthy recipients, of which you are one. I believe you are eminently qualified to receive this award. Your writing is fun, cheerful, light-hearted and well written. You make me laugh out loud and it is healing laughter. Your irreverent approach to some issues are refreshing, and I enjoy your frank opinions on some of the goings-on of our day.

    If you would like more information and the rules surrounding this award, please go to my site here.

    So very very FUNNY!! I ‘pressed’ this to my blog, hopefully properly citing you all due credit/copyrights etc! Please do check, if I did anything incorrectly, I will delete the link posthaste- I am incredibly cognizant of plagiarism, (cannot abide it at all!) copyright issues, etc. Finally, I wanted to simply msg you this, as it’s not really a standard ‘comment’ per se, however, I loved this blog post so much I wanted to share!!!

    I love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and this is why I must now follow you. BUT do not get offended if I stop following you in the future. Lol

    1. girlonthecontrary says:

      Dont’ worry, I try not to pay too close of attention to who unfollows me. :)

    2. denise:) says:

      Hey, i was gonna say that! I’m going to follow you too, but don’t feel obligated to follow me back. I’m okay with my stalker-ish tendencies. If I stop following, it’s not because I don’t like you anymore, it’s just that I found another shiny penny.

      Love the goldfish!!

    Ah, my escritorial sister from another mister….reading you keep me from dwelling in my head and lets the Princess come out and play more often…keep writing. (Don’t worry–it’s inspirational energies only…I yam not a krook….)

  114. mustlovemusic82 says:

    I feel like we have been separated at birth. Love your blog. I too am socially awkward around cute men and love Alice. I think we should start a club, it would be da bomb. ;)

  132. Aquavista says:

    Stumbled upon your blog quite by accident, and just thought I’d say that I love your style, totally. Will be adding you to my blogroll and following you from now on. Great stuff – you are unique!

    You’re hilarious! and you have amazingly interesting thoughts! I only found your blog today, but I love it! Keep it up! :) :)

      1. waterliyl says:

        Ahh… I thought I’d read something similar in ‘Alice and wonderland’ I think. But even if they aren’t your words, it fits in exactly with your humour and style :D

  134. The Edmonton Tourist says:

    Hey CG, I nominated you for most “Stylish Blogger”. See my latest post for your 15 seconds of fame! This isn’t the Nobel Prize, but darn close.

  135. spidergirlxD says:

    Hey, nice blog!!!
    Alice is Wonderland is AWESOME, I’m glad someone else actually likes it beyond the movie.
    Stay (sic) xD
    P.S. – your ranting is epic
    P.P.S – your mother. (I’m sorry, I had to put that in.)

  136. amydipane says:

    I have this very quote, along with a drawing of The Mad Hatter, pinned up above my writing desk. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog!

  137. Christina Adleman says:

    haha, that’s great, truly ingenious, and I do believe that I agree with that 110%! Because I already follow that theory of nonsense for my own life… the only exception being is that I do have a world of my own, there’s no “if” about it… *cough*… what can I say?, I’m a daydreamer, and my imagination is more vivid than most people can claim about theirs. :D

  138. genevieve says:

    I love your blog – it’s so original and funny – I’m officially hooked! Keep it up, can’t wait to read more of your contrariness…

  139. OpentoAdventure says:

    I just wanted to leave a note to say thanks for blogging! I love your writing and hope to see plenty more of it!
    :)

    1. girlonthecontrary says:

      Thank you so much! I will definitely be writing more- I can’t seem to turn this contrary brain off!

  140. seosemwebservicesindia says:

    hey girl,

    love to see your blog and the way you’re dealt with haha..

    keep up, and always be original, which you love to be!

    Good luck!

  141. Whirlwind of emotions says:

    I stumbled across your blog on the freshly pressed page. Great blog, great writing and absolutely amazing content. Each post so different from the last. Refreshing read.

    Thank you fo the wonderful insights. :)

  142. Diane says:

    Average? Not!

    Please email me. I would like to see if you could do a weekly column for me. My daily online paper reaches a minimum of 60,000 readers per week.

    I’m not very rich, but I have a great following. Who knows where this could lead?

    Ah, I get it. Your world will only exist as long as your world does not exist. Because if your world exists it would no longer be different from that which exists, and will thus cease to exists.

    Thought you might like to see another blog on the same lines as yours.

    In many ways I’m a lifehacker. So, that would lead me to believe that you and I have much in common. But that can’t be, right? Because you’re contrary, including to me, and so am I, and therefore … what ARE we? Oh, hell, i give up.
