    A Mild 2am Rant.

    Perhaps it has always been my over active imagination. I've never sensed that was completely it though. It's just one of those things where you can never win. I don't belong, but I sense that I did once. I'm not religious by any means so spare me that talk, please. I remember...

    Like I'm Not Even Human

    I love creating art... and when people ask me to draw portraits or have people subjects, I always turn it down. But when I tell them I can't do that and they ask why, I always feel this weird pain inside and I know I can't ever tell them the real reason. I can only make this...

    Why am I here? I'm really not sure how I ended

    up here on earth, as a living being. When I look around everything, the plants, the buildings, the walls etc seem so fake. What is real? I don't know. I feel like I'm just living inside the matrix and this is all just a big game to someone.

    Out There

    What can I say? I never felt as if I was born here, sure I was born but I always felt like I belonged elsewhere. I don't know how to explain it, as I'm sure most of you guys feel about it. Maybe it's my depression or my weight issue, but deep down I know I'm in the wrong place. I...

    Yeah.

    No Hometown

    During the course of my 20 years so far, I have never belonged. Up until about 2 years ago, I always had valid excuses but even then I knew something wasn't quite right. When I was a child I grew up in Oregon with an abusive mother and a family that looked the other way, when...

    Reincarnated As A Human?

    I have been thinking about this for quiet some time now, the thought of "Am I an Alien reincarnated as a human?". This thought process started taking place after I spend 1 year reading about the Anunnaki in Zecharia Sitchin's books, which deal with Ancient Astronaut theories. I...

    I Don't Belong On This Planet And I'm Waiting To Go Home

    For as long as I can remember, I've always felt homesick no matter where I was. I always knew home wasn't here on Earth. Even as a child I'd watch people, how they interact with each other, examine their features, their behaviors, and I've wondered why I'm so different, why I don...

    Self Loathing
