That'a a very interesting Question...and Ya,I'm not really suprised they say that^J^ My city has 36 000 people in it so some of us know each other.I'm known द्वारा about 108(the only ones in my city who are aware of my existence) people as the हेतालिया Fangirl:D
Well, in my school I have most definitely left quite a mark, being rather infamous, but in a good way...? I don't live in an extremely large town, not at all, but I live near the city, so not only is almost everyone too stuck up या in a rush to notice me, not a lot of people know eachother, so it's really only a few hundred kids who know of me. Most of them don't know me personally, but they judge on what they've heard of me so I really only have a handful of फ्रेंड्स in town.
Anyway, in my school I'm pretty much known for being a total weirdo who sits in the पुस्तकालय and reads atlases like they're an amazing novel and sings in Japanese. And for tons of other weird stuff since kindergarten. But mostly for being "The गाना Girl" या "The Foreign Culture Loving Nerd" या "That Girl Who Likes Japanese Stuff".
And in the summer we stay in the city, where probably a million people live and another million come and go every day. I'm practically invisible then. Trying to walk to the bookstore in the city is total hell =.= People just run into me, it's like I'm not there! But then again, that happens in town too T.T
No.... I think a total of 10 people in my town even know who I am -.- and they probably have a hard time remembering me. And yes, before आप ask, I'm Canadian and YES I have to wait for people to finish talking before me even if that means never talking at all. But no, I don't have a pet bear. *is sad because she wanted a भालू like Mr Kumajiro*
