    I Have Always Been.

    What Makes Them Think That?

    I used to wonder why I was never part of the

    'cool kids group'. Then I realised that I couldn't care less about following styles like a sheep because that's what the 'in thing' is. While they drool about boys and skimpy shorts, I'm here considering my University degrees and voluntarily teaching myself in the summer...
