    In college there was an impossibly handsome guy

    named Jacob. We went to a huge college , a myriad of people who belonged in different groups like goths, emos, jocks, athletes. And then tehre was me. I didn't really fit into any category. " You're different" Jacob told me. I smiled and shrugged it off. I had been " different...

    Hey to you girls out there

    who has been lied to and cheated on and is now hurt or broken. Well I just wanted to say not all guys are the same. Some are better and more mature than others. Some are boys and some are men. My opinion is boys cheat and men don't. So don't go around and thinking every guy is...

    I feel like everyone's different.

    .. Which also kind of makes us all a little similar if you think about it..

    Senpai Made The Sea

    He was 15. I was 13. I called it "love." But it was lust. He felt it too. I lost it. He did not. I said "no." He said "yes." And so...a dragon lost the war. I became the sea. No one could understand me, and my pain. So I became distant. No one can tame me. No one can own me. For...

    How Do I See Myself

    I'm different. In one way I'm there in others I'm so far away. The mind is the 'leader' of the body. The mind decides and sometimes the heart decides. I'm modest, some might say prim and proper. I'm also feminine, adventourous and lovable. The real me is somewhere in between...

    I seem very normal on the outside,

    but inside I'm very different. I am drawn to strange and obscure things, not to be a "hipster" or anything but because I like feeling unique. Usually I do genuinely learn to like those things(I've found that if there is something that somebody finds interesting, you can learn...

    Usually the typical shy girl

    who doesn't talk that much (school wise and also EP wise) and replies with short answers, but once you dig deeper and know me more I can actually be really fun :) Just have to put some effort and not make me do everything aha!

    I sometimes talk to myself,

    as if I'm talking to another person. I guess it's because I've been alone (mentally) for the majority of my life, that it's almost as if I've actually become my own best friend.

    being different from other people is ok

    because you gain more power then others of the different ways that you are different. Also by being different gives you a lot more courage then before you were maybe normal or who you were before you changed to become different.
