I've been listening to Space Oddity for about 45 minutes. I remember my old Physics teacher telling us that this song is mainly about drugs as it was written while David Bowie was on drugs. I can't confirm nor deny that, but even if he was on drugs, this song has a different meaning for me. I understand it as distancing yourself from the world when you realize there's nothing you can do about it being a cruel place. I understand it as losing communication with everyone when you see that you're different from them.

I've always known I was different, because I've never felt like I completely belonged somewhere. I don't know why I'm different, though. It might be because I've always liked different music. Or maybe because I bury myself in writing, TV shows or singing when I'm feeling terrible about myself. Or maybe because I adore Freddie Mercury and David Bowie. Or maybe because I despise small talk and would rather talk big all the time. It might be because I have trouble expressing my feelings in ways other than writing. I don't know.

But I am different. And after almost twenty years I decided that's wonderful, because I'm not the only different one. The world is filled with different people - people that don't fit the norm. And every once in a while you get lucky and meet them. I guess I'm not making much sense.

But if you understand what I meant with this jumble of words, then Hello there.
Want to be my friend and talk big
