"I wouldn't have such trouble adjusting to the world if the world made sense."

I'm reading Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner. I identify with the main character because she's a 19-year-old genius with no friends or social skills. Except I have friends and moderate social skills. And I'm not 19. And... well, okay, I'm not a genius either.

I've always thought that my thoughts would someday serve a great purpose in the world, but the more days that pass, the more unlikely it seems. I've considered starting a log of my thoughts and ideas, but I fear if I do, I'll feel obligated to run to the log and write down every thought I have, and it will become an obsession. Maybe I can limit it to ten brilliant thoughts per day. But I think picking the ten best could be hard.

If I wrote down everything I thought, I would have no readers at all.

Except if, as you say, blogs are for laughing at. In which case I would be here every minute.

I'm going to be 19 in a month and a half. I have friends and OK social skills. Hmmmm.
