…a place where the strange ones go.
“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.” – Sylvia Plath
Hello there! My name is Kelsey Yates and somehow you’ve stumbled upon The Strange Ones, my personal blog where I write about a variety of things that interest me. I originally started this site to focus on all the bad-ass females that inspired me – whether it be creatively, mentally/intellectually, spiritually, even physically. (You can read more here on how I got the idea for the blog.) But much like the Sylvia Plath quote above, I hate being limited and although I will continue to feature incredible women, I really just want this to be a place where I can be my strange self.
I live in Vancouver, BC with my husband & two pugs. I work in the aviation industry in Communications and am also a part-time Communications student at Simon Fraser University. I’m a sucker for nostalgia, addicted to potato chips and love everything and anything design-related (especially typography & patterns).
