Hello! We’re Rebecca and Thomas, the writers behind Becoming Weird.

We decided to give our blog this name because we’re on a mission to live differently–to live a life that is weird compared to the basic expectations for upward mobility in the United States. To us, that means embracing creativity and making art, living frugally, and reaching out to love and know our neighbors as well as we can.

We don’t write this blog because we know how to do all of those things; rather, Becoming Weird is a record of our journey as we start from “normal” and seek to grow a little weirder every day. We hope that by reading our blog you will be encouraged to grow in whatever way brings you joy.

Thanks for stopping by, and we’ll see you on the weirder side!
