About Me



Hey there! I’m Courtney 🙂

I am a 19-year-old homeschool high school graduate. Currently, I am taking steps to indulge in a gap year in which I will not only be taking a much-needed break from the world of academia but investing in exploring the world (and different parts of myself in the process)!

If you are one of this blog’s day one’s, you know that this is just about the 20 billionth time I have written/edited an about page for this blog… (I cringe a little inside as I write that >.<). Truth is, I find it hard to sum myself up in just a few short sentences… and I’m quite surprised it is so easy for others to do so.

I feel that we are all constantly growing, evolving, and discovering different parts of ourselves as life unravels us. So instead of telling you about who I am today, I’ll tell you about  how my particular path has lead me here. IMG_3140 I started this blog right after I had decided to go through with “the big chop”. For those of you who aren’t familiar with that term, it’s a term used to describe the cutting off of all of one’s (normally damaged) hair in an attempt to grow it all back as healthy as possible.  I’d reached this point in my life where I was tired of always altering myself to better fit my own preconceived idea of what beauty really looked like… which until that point, wasn’t me.

Thinking this blog would be my sort of self-love and acceptance despite social norms/hair journey diary; I named it “The Curly Anomaly”. I didn’t intend the name to be a self endowed nickname for myself, but as I wrote/grew more and my main topics began to evolve into what they are today, I realized that it unintentionally became so!

So welcome to “The Curly Anomaly”! A lifestyle blog that follows a music obsessed, personal-touch styled, hungry for new heights and sights girl as she journeys through adulthood. All the while, sharing lessons, tricks, and passions she picks up along the way!

Here are a few extra facts about me:

  • Favorite Music: I love everything except screamo (and sometimes country).
  • Life Mantra: “Still, I Rise”

  • Favorite Season: Winter
  • Astrological Sign: Leo
