    The World You Love

    I'm lost, plain and simple.I can't make up my mind on anything and when I do, ask me again in a week and 9 times out of 10 my answer will have changed. But of course no one I physically know knows that. They just all assume I have the same opinions as I did when I was 4, and I'm...

    Stranger In A Familiar Land

    Not exactly sure what prompted it in the first place, or if it was actually the default state of affairs, but I've always felt like something vaguely alien to this world. Not in the sense of "I'm not sure what I should be doing in this situation" but in the sense of "if I draw...

    Where Do I Belong Now?

    I've always been an ugly child, and an even less attractive teenager. (My worst years were my "tween" years.) And now that I'm finally reaching 20 and soon will be expected to let go of my childhood and all that that implies I feel kinda lost. Being an unpopular girl I grew into...

    I Don't Fit In But I Don't Care

    I have never fitted in to a specific mold but why should I. I'm not sporty enough to be a jock, not smart enough to be a geek, I don't wear the right things talk the right way or listen to the right music but why should I? Why should I listen to pop, wear designer labels and...

    I Like Being Unique

    I don't even try to fit in. I like being me.  I am unique and there is no one out there like me.  I am proud of that fact.

    Just A Little Of Everything.

     I don't, not, fit in anywhere. I fit in with a lot of people and groups. I have a very open mind and I dont dismiss anything until I have tried it. I love trying new things and meeting new people. I love having a new and odd story to tell people and new memories to have. I...

    I don't quite belong to a social group

    nor have any good friends. The best friends I do make seem to turn out to be rude or abusive. I'm fairly smart but not smart enough to hang out with the intelligent kids. I can decently draw but not well enough to hang out with the artistic kids. I don't really fit in anywhere.
