My Full Frame Sensor is a crop sensor? Can you explain?

The lens projects a circular image. Your "full frame" sensor crops an arbitrarily shaped rectangle out of that circular image. Therefore if your photos aren't circular you're not using your lenses to their full potential.

"Crop" sensors simply crop a slightly smaller rectangle out of the circular image in exactly the same way.
