    I'm unique...like everyone else out there.  Which really isn't a comforting thought.  If we're all unique, then doesn't that make us all the same?  O.o

     Wow This Question Sum...

     Wow this question sums me up entirely. Everyone here drinks and acts stupid all the time, and their lives are so meaningless. I just sit here and listen to them scream and puke and have sex and it takes all the meaning out of my life too. Why can't I find someone like me?

    I'm like the only one in my grade who does have acne. Little kids are always staring at me. It's just so awkward. When people meet me they usually stare at me for a while before they say anything. Or talk to me but don't look at my eyes and look at my forehead. I hate it!!!
