    I'm 18 and I don't think like everyone else.

    My mind is so into analyzing and figuring out why people and things are the way they are. I'm VERY mature for my age and I don't understand why. The way I process thoughts and actions are the way a 30-40 year old would. I can see things from so may different perspectives and it...

    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...

    Ever since I was little I've been a complete

    perfectionist. I literally over think everything to the point where I can't control myself. I do diving and high jump in track. I have a really hard time with diving because I can't do half my skills because all I do is think about every single thing that could possibly happen...

    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...
