    The Military Life

    My mother is in the military, so about every two years of my life I have moved. I absolutely hate it. I'm a really introverted person, so it takes a while for me to make strong connections with people and to really trust them. Every time I got close to people, I...

    I bought my home in 1999. Lost my job in 2005 due to outsourcing. Thursday  I went to court and was given 30 days. I am overwhelmed with it all, as I'm sure many americans are. I don't know where I will go or how.

    Moving is such a pain.

    There is so much to do. Unpacking, downsizing, and so on. It is so stressful and I have no time to stop and breath.

    I really hate moving.

    People always say "you'll make more friends." Uhm no! My old friends are like family to me, no one can't replace them. New school, new everything, it's tearing me apart. The loneliness kicks in. I just wanna go back home, to my friends, my true friends.
