I honestly have been blogging for almost two years now and have always wanted to start a blog with the greeting “howdy.”
So.... Howdy. *insert eyebrow wiggle*
Let it be said, in this very first blog post on my redesigned blog, that I am a little weird. Not like, serial killer following you around Walmart weird, but like, I definitely sit on the floor for hours at time when I am at half-priced books. I also like cold ravioli from a can.
So what is the point of this actual blog post, you may ask? Well I wanted to tell you all how I came up with the name “The Overwhelmed Midwestern.”
It was an accident really.
Let’s start with the “Midwestern” part:
I am from the Midwest, and I feel like us Midwestern folk get a bad rap. From using the word “Ope” literally all the time, to using ranch on everything as well as having the most unpredictable weather on the planet. There are just a lot of memes about us.
(Please google “Midwestern memes” and you will see what I mean.)
I for one, really love living in the midwest. For example, we get to enjoy all four seasons but all in a beautiful moderation. Unless our winter lasts seven months, like it sometimes does. That’s besides the point though. I am just a proud midwestern, so that part of the name came kind of easy.
The “Overwhelmed” part:
I get stressed out pretty easily. Whether it be over my house, my car, money, creativity, or relationships, I am just an all around stressed out person. My life span is probably fifty at this point because of it.
Nevertheless, obviously I did not like the name, “The Stressed Midwestern”. So I went to thesaurus.com and looked up words that were a synonym for “stressed”.
“The Overwhelmed Midwestern” was created
I hope you all enjoyed tale on how my blog name came to be.
Until next time,
