    I Have Always Maintained My Face....

    I am growing up in a society where you are forced to be someone else to be recognized. Stigma is highly associated with people who try to maintain their ground in what they strongly believe in and doing what their conscience leads them through. I am one person who is not bothered...

    The Word Weirdo Seems To Follow Me Around....

    I can remember being called a weirdo as an 11 year old somewhat affectionately by friends, and it made me nervous. I think they called me that because my sense of humor was different than theirs, I read a lot of books and played elaborate imaginary games with dolls and friends...

    What world I'm from I don't know,

    You can tell just by looking at my kindergarten graduation photograph. Everyone who sees it can instantly tell which one is me. The only one standing just a little separated from the group with this incredibly obvious "why the hell do I have to be here" look on my face.

    I Want To Be A Minority

    I have always been different and that's the way I like it! Why would I want to be a copy of anyone else? I am my own man with my own opinions and that makes me proud. I will not be a carbon copy of anyone, I am me, I am different, and I am proud of that!
