    It's Kinda Funny, Really

    I have a lot of aunties on my mother's side of the family and I have a little sister who's going through high school. My sister and I have different voices. But on the phone, my aunties sometimes think that I'm my sister and my sister's me because they say that we sound pretty...

    All the Time

    I must have "one of 'those' faces" because every time I go anywhere I am always being stopped by people saying I look like someone they know. I don't know them and I'm really good about remembering faces. I have been called just about every name you can imagine, a lot...

    I Get Told I "look Just Like [insert Name]"

    OMG..how Idiotic People Are!

    This has occurred a lot. I don't know what is with my face/body, but people like to assume I'm some other chic. I almost even got beat up by a worker from a retail store because she thought I was some girl she knew. I hate this!!! It's like I have a recognizable gene or...

     I never used to get this but people have been saying, "I mistook someone else for you," or they come up to me and say, Them:Hey, _____! Me: -confused look- Them: Sorry, I thought you were someone else. Apparently I look like Winona Ryder too.
