One reason I made this blog is to share my unusual life. I am not the average teen. I prefer The Clash to Rihanna, sewing to buying, and a good thrift store instead of Forever 21. I often get made fun of from kids at my school and sometimes people who I trust. I am not a follower of trends like everyone else, unless I actually like it. I have always been scared to admit to myself, and others, that i'm not the average teen.
A week ago (before I got the flu,,..) I went to my best friend's (from my old school) birthday party at the beach. I felt so out of place. All the girls, were wearing Forever 21 short shorts, crop tops, and a lot of makeup. I was wearing 50's high waisted shorts and a striped bow shirt. They each had their "clingy groups"and were talking about teenager stuff. One girl was taking about going to a party where everyone got arrested. I knew then that I was not like them. Even if I tried, I could never be like them. I had nobody to talk to.
I came home, and had an awful feeling inside. Why can't I be like them! Why can't I be normal! And in the end I new why. I am original. Not a copy. And I will always stay that way.
