    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 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'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...

    They say different is better

    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.
