    I'm Not Buying What The World Is Selling

    I don't buy 99% of what the world is selling me. I don't think most people are authentic simply because they are fearful, afraid to strike out from the crowd, so they go along and do nothing very interesting or creative, or passionate. I don't subscribe to the traditional...

    Money Spell

    Not So Happy To Be Eccentric Sometimes.

    Okay, I don't wanna rain on the weirdo pride parade that I see is going on here, but I have to be honest. Sometimes I have a hard time dealing with it. I know I shouldn't feel this way but I grew up in a very small southern town so I spent a lot of years thinking that I was crazy...

    I Used To Think I Was Unique

    Unique is just a way to put a positive spin on weird. The truth is that I am a walking, breathing freak show. I can tell by the way that I am treated and the way that I can't really relate to anyone. I didn't ask for this. I am interested in what I am interested in. I can't get...

    My Story: Lost In The Sea Of The Modern World

    Quite honestly, I do not belong. It seems time has misplaced me; my persona does not conform to the rifts nor to the tides that turn in this modern era. Thus, my life is truly a tragedy. I'm a speck of blue in a world of black and white; a fantastical dream amid blunt reality--a...

    Reasons I Am Eccentric

    Our Haunted Home

    Opinionated And Eccentric

    I dress how I like. Act the way I wish. Don't care what others think of me. Have been called "weird" more times than I can count. It's who I am .. "Eccentric"  sounds much nicer.

    I'm A Nut!

    I draw people in with my big smile and pretty looks, and then it's like: "Suprise!" I am a wild one and completely unpredictable. But I guess that's what keeps life fun and exciting, right? Like it or leave it.

    My bf said that I am eccentric I always knew I was kind of weird but never categorized it as eccentric. Perhaps this is why I don't have friends and my family is always a little distant when it comes to me ya know I think I like it that way too. : )
