    I can't really remember if I felt like this when I was younger but I do know that I was a loner most of the time. The feeling has got a lot worse latly though mainly because my 9th grade year we had A teacher who always looked at me different not in a creepy way but a way I can't...

    It Started Long Ago

    For no real reason, or maybe the silences, the unsaid, and the lies in the family. I saw my birth  certificate hundreds of time. My mother is my mother on it, and my father is the one my mother was married to when I was born. I know there're 50% of chances he...

    1 Out Of 5

    I've always felt like, not quite an outcast, but the odd man out of the group when it came to my family. I'm the only one that has a fascination with science, the only one who smokes green, the only one that doesn't drink, the only one who is socially akward and would rather...

    I Actually Am Adopted.

    I don't mean to insult anyone here or upset anyone. But being adopted and "wishing you were adopted" or even saying "i feel adopted" are separate things. I'm just gonna be honest, if you aren't adopted you will never know what it feels like to truly be adopted. It's like if you...

    I Sometimes Wish I Was Adopted...

    The only similarity I have with my parents is my physical appearance. Anyone who has heard about my parents and then gets to know me, asks me how I got to be so different from them. =/ I think differently, I behave differently, I perceive the whole world waaayyy differently than...

    This my brother, me and my grandma.

    The rest of the family has the same beautiful tan skin, but dad's a little bit fairer but not like my skin and whenever I introduce my little brother nobody believes it unless proven otherwise... I probably need to go out more...haha. Just sharing (^____^)/

    Even When I Was Little...

    I used to ask my mom if I was adopted... but we look too much alike, so that's a definite no, and always has been. I feel like I don't know half of me, which is true... I don't. What about my father? I always had his last name, but didn't know such a man existed until I was 12...

    I Don't Fit In With My Family

    They try to make it seem like I do, but to anyone with eyes it's clear that I don't belong. I'm a geek, they're sports nuts. I'm laid back, they're always frazzled. They always want to go on vacations, I just want to relax. Things like these (and many more) make me wonder if I...

    Always Opposite

    Especially with my mom because it seems like everything I think & feel is the complete opposite of what she thinks or feels. Like if I'm hot she's cold. Or if she wants to go there I don't. But most of the time I don't say so because for some reason me disagreeing with her makes...
