    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...

    Hum

    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!

    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!

    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...

    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.
