    Square Peg, Round Hole

    There was this goofy cartoon back when I was 16... it was called "Square Peg, Round Hole"... even though, it was goofy, it's also true to my life. The Square Peg couldn't fit in with everyone else who fit into the round hole... so he goes and dig himself a square hole...

    I wasn't always like this.

    Well, I guess I was, but people thought that I was at least interesting enough to listen to my ramblings. When I was little, I would randomly walk up to people and talk about whatever I was thinking of at the time. But being a cute, bubbly child, they just usually laughed along...

    At least it feels that way.  I always feel awkward and think that people find me weird, and most times after they get to know me, they tell me that they do find me weird.  I know it's probably a lot to do about nothing, but I always feel like I have to adjust the way...

    I should accept that I will always be defferent

    As Much As I Have Tried

    I've never really fit in with any one group or type of people. I like so many different (and completely clashing!) things, that I really can't be put into a neat little box. Sometimes it's really hard to live like that, but other times I'm proud that I can't be classified.
