    I Have Always Been A Little Different

    I feel very odd compared to other friends and relatives my age.  I'm 52 but I swear with all I have that I don't feel 52.  I feel like when I turned 20, I stayed there, lol.  When I'm on my computer, I have to have my headphones connected to my head.  I HAVE...

    I'M Rather Weird

    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...

    I Am A Little Odd

    because I have Asperger Syndrome, and therefore think differently than most people do.I collect "different" things, and I dress oddly, oftentimes- especially enjoy wearing capes (especially in cool, cold, or rainy weather), and wear rumpled clothing, like Albert Einstein used to...

    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.

    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...

    Odd Paranoia To Anthropomorphic Trappings

    I grew up in a really small town in Montana where my father was the town crazy. As a seemingly direct result of this I pretty much had no friends. I would make friends on the first day of school each year with the new kid, but by the end of the week they had been fully informed...

    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"!
