Have you ever had an assignment that makes you think? Worse. The assignment makes you reach back into the saddest memories that you can remember? Imagine being asked about the first time you were made to feel different. Then, pretend that you are me. Exactly which time in my life do you want? Because, with each interval of my life, it brought a new first time to feel different. I suppose that I will have to start from the beginning, but, in truth I already feel incredibly alienated now. Why would I want to go through this again? Oh, right. Because it may help someone.

I guess I have to go back to that time…whichever one it was.


So what about you, reader? What was your first time to feel different? Tell me yours, I’ll tell you mine.
