    Tough Questions

    Most of us seem to get by pretty well without asking the really difficult-to-answer questions too often. What is a human being? More impatiently, what am I?  These questions manage to remain at the forefront of my mind for months at a time with only brief emotional...

    Different

    Yes, I am different from others and many people are in real terms. I hated living where I did as a kid. I was different in school not fully adjusting to the boys who thought other wise. I got my butt  kicked as they thought just because Icame from the other side of the...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 Rare

    I pronounced words different from others; I have my own voice which is somewhat deep voice but feminine. I haven't watch most of the oldies movies like "gone with the winds" and "the west side story". I think I did watch half of Casablance; didn't like it; found it boring. I...

    I'm A Rarity- Almost Even Unique

    Throughout my whole ******* life someone's been telling me that they've never met a person like me. This is NO JOKE!! I've always seemed to be a rarity in children my age-my mother even called me strange!! My Grandmother said she's never encountered a person like me. Every kid...
