     Yes. ...

     Yes. People have such a tendency to group others into categories. Problem is, I don't fit into any of their categories. I'm Christian, but I'm not conservative. And I won't try to force my religion on you. I'm liberal, but I don't drink or use drugs. I hate America's...

    I've never really been understood by people.

    Family and friends think I'm a little odd. Of course I don't give up info on myself easily sometimes. Maybe it's because people tend to be afraid to approach me in person. I look unpleasant at times or intimidating. I'm not that bad once you get to know me, honestly.
