    See myself? A non-conforming

    Others? A geek/dweeb.

    I'll start...

    I saw myself as the pissed off at the world, typical metal head, skater punk
    dressed in all black with some converse (or Airwalks). Never liked the whole
    popularity contest, or gave a shit what people thought about me.
    I was "the loner".

    Most kids never knew what to think about me. I'm pretty sure they thought
    I was "the kid who took 6 years to graduate" (although I didn't).
    For some reason, they were also scared of me.

    I moved a couple of times.

    In middle school (TX) I was a nerd. In fact, I was the kid the nerds picked on to feel good.

    In Hawaii (8th-9th) I was sorta popular, but only because I was over 6' tall (they called me Eiffel).

    In WA, I was one of the kids whom everyone knew and liked, but didn't really fit in with a clique.

    Rebel brainiac, that was a bit scary. (I only know this because someone I met 20 years later was surprised that I seemed normal.) :laugh:

    Not at my school.
    Small town full of cowboys and uppity kids whose parents ran the community.
    I didn’t care to play the game so I dated girls from the neighboring towns.

    Every person, cares to different degrees, what others think of them. People just want to be liked, accepted. By somebody. By Others.
