    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...
