    I Don't Belong In This World

    The world is an unforgiving place for somebody like me. I'm 15 years old, yet I want to grow up, so I can go to university... I was always much naturally smarter than everybody else, and hardly had to try at all, but I was not socially smarter. I had few friends growing up, and...

    I'm half Spanish and half white.

    There will always be clicks in schools and you can totally see it in my school. All the white girls don't except me because I have curly hair and I have an accent on some words and all the Spanish people don't except me because I'm white and I have too many "white girl friends...

    I feel like I'm in the way.

    Everything I comment on turns out to be a disaster. Maybe I should keep everything to myself. I'll just go talk to a wall.

    I'm Weird

    I know I'm different. I feel almost overpowered by my emotions. It's not necessarily a good or bad thing because I've came to understand the balance of both but I don't fit in. People don't dislike the difference in me which is apparently extremely visible to all, luckily enough...

    I feel like there's something everyone else

    knows that I have never caught onto and people just never say anything about it because its assumed that everyone knows it. I feel like once (if?) I find out what this is it'll make my life a lot easier and happier. Any insight?

    I feel so lonely in this town,

    I don't talk to anyone anymore. Everyone drifted away. When I walk around or go out, I feel like a tourist everyone stares cause I dress different and act different. I wish I could go back to Oregon, that's where I feel like I belong.

    They say different is better

    than normal, but sometimes normal seems so much easier. Normal doesn't mean you don't have problems, but it does mean you can handle them civilly, or in a calmer more evenly tempered manner. Not saying being different means you are Crazy, but my different might. Crazy because I...
