    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.
