    Hate It Here

    I really hate it here. I hate the random annoying stupid *** people, I hate having no where to go. I can't possibly imagine missing this place. Maybe the food, but that's it. I've lived here all my life. I can't wait to move on. I'm considering moving to Charlotte, NC. I hear it...

    I actually thought that moving from Kentucky to

    beachside Florida was my final stop, no more problems right? Problems did follow me and some bad years, I could be happy anywhere under reasonable conditions if I am just honest with myself about what I do and don't like about myself.
