Nothing out of the ordinary…
My name is Mike. I am a 30 year old boy. I call myself a boy because I don’t feel like a man yet. I’m not sure what being a man feels like, but I still feel like a boy.
I’m just a normal boy. I’m not incredibly fascinating, but I’m also not too boring either. I don’t have special talents, but I do have regular talents, and I’m adequate at them. I’m sort of like a Jack of all trades (master of none), but more like a Jack of some trades, definitely not master of anything. Oh, except that I have master’s degrees in mathematics and statistics, and my name isn’t Jack.
My favorite book is “The World of Normal Boys” by K.M. Soehnlein. The name of this blog is based on that book. I immediately related to the main character of the book after reading just the first chapter. The book is about a boy named Robin, growing up gay and feeling like the world is full of normal boys (of which he is not one). The irony, of course, is that Robin (like me) is actually just a normal boy, coming to terms with himself and the world in which he lives.
