    Finally

    It has been a long time coming, too. I am 23 and since I was about 16 I have been desperate to move out. My mother and I just don't get along. And even when we do, it's phony. My dad and I talk a lot about my childhood, as well as my sister's, and dad seems to recall a time...

    Finally Getting Out Of That Hellhole

    I am moving out with my brother. I can't live with my parents anymore. My parents don't even care. They actually want me gone anyways. They will probably change their minds when I am gone, but I won't change my mind. I'm taking everything with me and never coming back. My...

    How do you do this? The moving out thing?

    How do you get money, *an apartment*, food, etc. I know you could just get a job, but as you can imagine, all this adult stuff seems easier said than done. I just don't know how to do any of it. (Seriously, how do you find a good apartment/house?)

    It's Time

    Normally, I can't stand Jennifer Lopez. Celebrities in general get on my nerves, jetting around, buying handbags that costs thousands of dollars while children starve. However, when she and Marc Antony separated, she said something that stuck to me. "I love myself to know when to...
