    Get Me Out Of Here!

    I am 17, and have truly can not wait to move out of the town I live in. Being apart of an alternative sub-culture, I see the true nature of man everyday. The people were I live are sad oafs if they have never witnessed anyone as such as myself. Living in a bubble that they more...

    Well... I don't exactly hate it.

    It's just I was born and raised here and I wanna venture somewhere different. It's impossible to move though because all of my father is here and he is my everything. I'm afraid of moving somewhere and not having the help I may need should I ever need it. Have you ever just...

    I live in Alaska... and I hate it.

    I am from the dessert, born and raised, and I miss it and my family. I live in Alaska with my husband and 2 young children. We are here because he makes about 3 times as much as he would in the "lower 48". When I first met my husband, he promised we would leave AK after we were...

    I live in rural Maine

    and I really really hate it here. I have lived around the USA and in europe and I moved to an old farm in Maine because it was free rent and I have horses. Seemed worth a shot at the time. OMG I am trapped here now. I have never liked it here but for the first 4 years figured...

    It's not that I completely hate

    where I live. It's just that I want to get out of Illinois and experience another place to live. Another job. Someplace that I can have it all, that I can make my own home in. The whole 9 yards.

    I just want to live somewhere

    Move Out Or Not?

    Life has brought me to a point today where I'm seriously thinking that I have to find a way out for myself and my loved ones. Today's situation has made me realize that we have been safe so far, but not anymore.... they're literally burning the whole country out :(

    He travels everywhere. One day he'll be in Florida, the next he'll be in Carolina, then the next he'll be in Pennsylvania. He motel/hotel hops. Never takes much with him. He doesn't have a lot of stuff to have to worry about. He doesn't have a big house to constantly clean...

    This town and every single person in it can

    kiss my butt. I hate it here. Every fiber of my being is aching to be somewhere else. When I drive through it, disgust swells up within me. Someone get me out of here. Anybody get me out of here. Get me the hell out of here.

    Depressed And Stressed In New York City

    I've always been miserable living in New York City. (even more so now with the rising crime rate this summer, but that's not unusual.) I long to be in fresh, open air. No crowds. To be able to walk out of my home and not be alarmed by a rodent scurrying along the sidewalk. I...

    West LA is a mixture of hipsters

    and the ghetto. It's not too bad. I mean, there's no gun shots or gangs too close by, but it still sucks. The costs of living here are high as ****, though. Who the hell would pay 500K for a one bedroom, one bathroom house in the ghetto?! The people... don't get me started on...

    could make someone so depressed, but it's happened to me. Two years ago I had to move to a small town in southern South Carolina (parent got a job). At first, I was neutral about the move. I thought it would be okay...a fresh start at least. But I can truly say that after...

    What Doesn't Kill You Tortures You

    I moved for a job to a very small town in Mississippi and I hate it. I am used to having things to do nearby not having to drive an hour at a minimum to everything including the grocery store. I can't even meet people my own age to hang out with. There isn't even a bar. It's so...

    I try not to. But it's hard.

    Often, it feels like a prison... I really feel like I'm going to need a lot of strength to get me through this next year. I find my strength through friendships. Empathy. Conversations. Laughter. EP is often my escape. I need you people.

    Aaah, it will feel so cathartic to write this.

    . I really, really, really loathe my town. (To such an extent it is perhaps worrying) I cannot stand the ugly (grey, neglected, appalling) town centre, I cannot stand some of the intrusive (also gossipy and small-minded) people, I cannot stand the 'malaise' of the town, I cannot...

    for years. In fact I was even born there. I always felt a bit left out the loop while I lived there and it made me quite... unique (read: unpopular). But then, I moved to this wonderful city with wonderful people that I hold very close to my heart. Too bad good things don't...

    Ireland sucks. Or at least the rural areas.
