    I don't like blending into the crowd.

    I dont care who doesnt like me. True friends will stick with you no matter what. The rest are not important

    We are all outcasts, yes?

    Then please let me share my way of dealing with it. Firstly, we all have ways that made us outcasts, so no need to share my story. This is just how I, the San Franciscan outcast live. 1. Keep your head down, but your eyes up. This is how we walk. They think I'm ashamed to be...

    I use to trick myself into believing

    that I was the worlds happiest loner. I told myself that I was tough, strong, and could stand on my own two feet without anyone's help. I surely didn't need anybody to care about me, love me, or notice me. I was all I would need for the rest of my life. But not until recently I...

    I hate myself sometimes.

    I'm basically a terror on my school. I find it fun and it helps make life less boring, but the feelings that come with it... I'll admit I'm not pleasant to everyone. That's clear and no one is pleasant to everyone. Me, I go around the school saying "Hey" to strangers. Students...

    Honestly I think I've come to enjoy being an

    outcast. It took a while to get used to, and a lot of problems. But its not that bad. Because now I have someone to share it with. Hopefully you guys do too.

    I enjoy it sometimes,

    but mostly, I feel as if my sense of adventure was growing restless, because of my lack of activity. I'm not an outcast by choice. A lot of stupid mistakes, can make you walk that path, of loneliness and alienation.

    I have never really "fit in" to the trendy

    groups, so to speak. That's not a good or a bad thing; it's just a fact of my life. I have always kinda been a quirky, awkward person who is simultaneously a hardcore introvert. I have never been into trendy things like pop music (er, well, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera are...

    I guess you could say over the years I gotten

    used to it. Wow that makes me sound old, when I'm only 17. I came up quiet and not really talking to anybody, I use my sketchbook or play games if I want a decent interaction. should I feel ashamed of this?

    I was an outcast during my high school years.

    All because I stood up for these two girls who got bullied by the whole batch. I felt sorry for them at first, that's why I befriended them. But after getting to know them, I found out that we were more alike than we thought we were. We got along pretty well although our...

    I'm the outcast in my grade.

    No one really acknowledges my presence. A lot of times I try to be strong about it at school, but when I get back home I cry and feel helpless. Guess it will be like this for the rest of my junior year and my senior year..

    I am currently homeschooled,

    so it doesn't matter much, but while I was in public school, people saw I was special. Maybe it because I corrected the teacher on things they got wrong, maybe it was because I helped clean after school. I was avoided, except for other's personal gain. I took an online IQ test...

    I've always been an outcast.

    Even at the age of 27, I'm still an outcast. I could easily be the creepy guy in the creepy house just outside of town. All the kids in town would say that my house is haunted. The parents would say, "Stay away from there. He eats little kids."
