    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...

    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...

    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...
