They've always said that i was a little different from everyone else. Who'dve thought that when they said "a little different" they meant almost in every categorey possible for any one human to fit under.
I have to admit, almost nothing about my life has been "normal" but i try my best to blend in with as much of societies norms as possible. Just to start it off, i am Asian. If you think thats weird..get this... i'm gay.
