I Was Told That I Was "Interesting"

    Hmm....interesting....

    I've heard it a lot of different ways. One in the tone of how Spock would say, "What a facinating specimen, I must put this under further investigation." Lol, that's my favorite. XD Some people have said it like I'm just weird. And then a few times people have said it in all...

    And I'm Proud Of It!!

    "Intersting". "Different". "Odd". "Strange". Yes, I've been called them all. Do I care? Yes. I like being called all that! I mean... all it means is that I'm not the same as all the other people in my town! So many people here are just... normal. And boring. They're hollister...

    Something That Bothers Me About This

    Just Before.........

     He sexually assaulted me. He said I think that you are an interesting person. Those are the words that I can't get out of my head.    I shudder to think what he would have done, had he found me uninteresting or boring!

    I was never told that I was interesting. Well, I can't say never because while back someone on here said I was. Which it was all cool!

    Um...thank You?

    Over the course of my life thus far, I've been told that I was "interesting" quite a few times. Honestly, I think that's flattering to say the least. Sure, I'm a weirdo but weirdos have feelings too.

    Hang Up On the Word

    When I was studying painting in Japan from a Kenji Ambo he frequently looked at my work and would say, "that's interesting."  I found that he would only say his work was good.  Everyone else's was at best intersting.  So, I have a hang up on that word...

    Real Meaning

    i've always been annoyed by the southern habit of sugar coating your meaning. phrases like "bless your heart," usually mean more along the line of "you idiot." i find interesting usually means how have you not killed yourself/been arrested? either that or you're a nutter. lol, i...
