    Social Pariah

    I've always been a bit of a weirdo. I have ADHD and tics and that really affected my grade school experience. I went to a rich kid elementary school but my family was poor. I didn't have any friends until I think fourth grade. I'm in touch with reality but have always had a...

    Odd Paranoia To Anthropomorphic Trappings

    What if your possessions could tell your story? Recount everything they bear witness to. My computer would likely tell a story of a nerd, and one who is far too fascinated in bad music. My bookcases may moan about how, while I do read, I never read anything they store and allow...

    everyone is though...

    you're weird, I'm weird, we're all weird in our own ways. because "normal" is relative. your idea of normal is different from mine and vice versa. if we were all the same, we'd be machines, not people. but ironically it seems that the people high up in power want to make us...

    I never could quite fit in

    because I'm shy, outspoken, artistical, trusting, humoristic, observant, enthusiastic learner and absolute optimistic oddity. For this and many other reasons, I will always be proud.

    As far as EP goes, I maybe simply another

    Epeep; however, where I live and where I work, especially, I am seen as a friendly, yet eccentric, oddball. That's perfectly okay by me. If I tried to "fit in", it would drive me insane Then I'd be far more than "a little odd"!

    Of Course I'm Odd

    I love being a little "off ". Actually it's been my experience that everybody is weird. You just don't see it in most people because you don't get close enough. I prefer to use the word "eccentric" for myself because it's a happy word. Unfortunately the words 'odd' and 'weird...

    But it's usually a sign of genius.

    Being brilliant and creative frequently come with eccentricities. As though it were a detraction for being so ahead of the curve to balance you out. Maybe it's just part of the smart gene.

    (Originally posted on May 7,

    2013) My depression can make me do some strange sh!t. One night I was so depressed that I used my self-harm blade to not only cut myself but also I chucked it at the floor, just to see it pierce the carpet and stick up out of it. I then proceeded to draw a stick figure and...

    Misplaced Perhaps

    Heard of May-December relationships? Am in one - didn't matter at first, but now am mid-60s and she is nearing 81. Amazing how one's feelings can change over a couple of decades.

    I would like to think the amount of odd people

    out way the amount of "normal" but sometimes it's hard to find just the right kind and balance of "odd" that clicks. I cherish the friendship I have with one friend in particular because no matter how odd I maybe he rolls with it. He flows with the ups and downs of my moods and...

    and even say odd things on occasion. Some people accept it though and others don't.

    Generally I am a loner

    and very passive toward life. I have my own way of seeing things and others sometimes just don't know how to take me. I don't always try to make it easier for them. I just let life happen to me and thrill at the wonder of it all. I am what I am, and at this point I'm not likely...

    Ok, so. I've done a lot of weird things but one of the weirdest things I've done is wear a man bra in public. One day, I went to a camp and I was really shy, after a few days, I grew to be SUPER loud. I made new friends, those friends and I put on our bras and flooded our shirts...

    What Is Normal Without Oddness?

    To be truly odd, one must be normal, for without oddness, normal is non existent, and without normality, there can not be cat tacos. I believe normal people are stranger than normal people, because normal people are crazy, unlike normal people Odd people are like cats, no one...

    and act very traditionally yet I love listening to the hardest loudest rock/metal/screamo music all the time. I love it. But I feel like I don't fit in at the concerts.
