    Freak Or Unique?

    For as long as I can remember, I have always felt like the odd one out. I've done all of the things I "should" do. I've had a lot of the experiences I "should" have had, but... All the things I "should" have been doing, meant very little to me whilst I was doing them. I went to...

    Definitely Not

    Whenever I sit in class, and the teacher hasn't yet come, I usually don't have much to do, when my friends are around I usually talk a lot. But then, I all of a sudden I just become quiet, and then I don't talk at all. I open my books, start reading. I don't know what it is. It...

    I'm A Rarity- Almost Even Unique

    At All

    I am so different from most people that they think I am from another planet sometimes. Literally in some cases. People like to find similarities to bond over, and as a result I have few friends. I am okay with that, I'm kind of a loner anyways.

    I Was Always A Little Different

    I am not like others.  I am the black sheep of the family.  I am odd and unique because I have a really weird sense of humor.   I am sarcastic, and witty, if I feel comfortable around the person I'm talking to.  I make a fool out of myself all the time, I...
