    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'm sitting here while my children sleep

    and my husband is on the couch next to me. He has no idea how unhappy I am, although I have broached this conversation many times. I grew up in a small town in New England and, of course, wanted to leave as soon as I could. I went off to a larger town and then to the suburbs...

    I hate Philadelphia. I've had the opportunity

    to meet the rudest, most uneducated, arrogant, and bitter people here in Philadelphia. Please, take into account that I have lived in different cities in the US. I am living here because I have no choice at the moment; I would run away if I could!

    It is hard to find many people to relate to in

    my state. Words like "creativity" and phrases like "think outside the box" are rate concepts. There is not much substance past high school football, hunting season, and cookie cutter beauty pageants. Ready to skip town.

    I was born in, and now live in Southern Alabama,

    the ulcer in the gastrointestinal tract of humanity. Here is a list of reasons: 1. Climate The temperature will fluctuate from searing hot to frigid in less than twenty-four hours. My body cannot adapt to this. 2. Religion It's truly ridiculous. There are far too many...

    I abhor where I live.

    It feels good to blurt it out. I'm sorry, I can't help it. Gray everyday and cold. Tons of snirt (snow and dirt). People are audaciously rude with dogs that bark constantly. Poor area, no education, and nothing to do besides shovel. I am stuck. I like it hot and sunny. I...

    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...

    I live in a urban, but very poor area. Some areas don't even have proper sanitation, everything is filthy (lot's of garbage in the streets), it's dangerous, you can't even go out at night alone without fearing you'll get robbed. People are petty and conservative; men are...

    Move Out Or Not?
