    Waiting For The Flip

    I call it that, Waiting for the flip, because all my life I have been waiting for just that ...the flip. The point in time when I will feel like I am part of this common human experience that is going on. I had a pretty normal and good childhood and grew up in a stable home...

    The Inbetween

    I seem to be living in the inbetweens of the world.Neither in the light, embracing everything and shining through, or the dark, skulking in shadows cowering away from the energy.Nobody knows me because nobody bothers to look in the nooks and crannies.I walk down the street with...

    in anywhere, esp. right now in my life, but I know I fit in somewhere and have fit-in society in the past. I live in America, the most diverse and progressive country on earth, so to be considered unusual, different, atypical here REALLY puts you in a small corner demographic.I...

    Seriously, Don't Try

    But if you do decide to try to friend me on here, it better be for a god damn good reason. You also better prove to me that you're serious about wanting me as a friend.  Otherwise, if you're not human (for whatever reason) and if you're not already in my "Friends" list, don't...

    It's True.

    I never fit in at school. Even among my friends, I feel like no one "gets" me, with a few exceptions. I definitely don't fit in on the internet, and probably won't fit in here.Here's to not fitting in: ouch! yay!

    This  group suits me perfectly.It's true, I do not fit in anywhere. I'm different to the other people out there. I don't share the same interests as other people. I don't do the same things as other people. At work I feel like the odd one out sometimes. Maybe it's because I...

    I Feel Cheated

    I was told all my life that nerdy is the new cool. Unfortunately, by "nerdy" they mean well-groomed normal people with odd interests and not REAL, eccentric nerds. I wondered why I never fit in despite the fact that I went to a "nerdy" high school. I may never recover.

    It'S A Chore

    I have autism which means that social interaction for me can be a bit of chore as is trying to get a job since autistic people cannot work. Sometimes I feel that not many people can relate to me at all.

    I am starting to realize

    that it's not that I don't fit in anywhere, it's that I try to fit in too many places at once. Too much breadth, and not enough depth. Because I try to fit in everywhere, I don't feel connected or close with any one group.
