    I'm different. Very different.

    I may be human, yet I don't understand other humans. I don't understand why they feel love. Why they are scared of death, and other people dying. I don't know how to love. I used to love my family, but now... I just don't any more. I honestly could care less whether they die or...

    The Vibrant Mind Of The Calloused Soul

    I've always been different but by no means special. After all no one is truly unique. Pretending to be someone I'm not has never come easy to me so I don't say much. In the first grade I took an iq test and was never told my score. However, this past year I took another one under...
