    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?

    They say different is better

    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...

    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 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.
