    I Don't Act My Age

    I am not like many other teenagers.  I am more responsible and disciplined.  I am tuned in to the world and know what the world is about.  I think about the future unlike other teenagers.  I am completely more mature than all other teenagers.  I swear I...

    I don't know why and really it shouldn't,

    but this happened to me years ago and still it stays with me. It is not like this is a one time thing, but rather an ongoing theme, but that one time sticks in my mind. Years ago we had to shut down the office for a couple of hours for a termite issue. We have a small office...

    In Many Senses Of The Word.

    In my family, I feel like an outsider because I'm the only one who will have gone to a 4-year college, am more liberal, and am more intelligent than the rest of my family. I find myself arguing with them about things that I know would be pointless to argue about if they knew what...

    for me to be happy is to leave everyone and everything I have ever known behind. I have a loving family, good friends, a girlfriend who loves me, and a promising future, but I can't stay happy. There's a little dark pit in the bottom of my soul, hard and round, that never lets...

    An Outsider On The Inside

    Everyone, I think, feels like an outsider when they're at school because your hormones are going wild and your body's changing and you have your first crush on a guy and you're going through all this stuff that you think no one else is when really everyone else is. But I'm...

    I Feel Like I Don't Belong!

    I go to TAFE with my friends, at least I think they are my friends. I just feel like I don't belong anywhere, like I am an outsider looking in. That's how my whole life has been though, I am on the edge of everything and I don't quite fit into anything.

    I hate the city. It is like an artificial desert. They take away the water and the trees and grasses and shrubs and replace it with something that has never been alive or dead, like the sand in a desert. I want to be outside all the time, but not in the barren concrete. Barren...
