    Where to Next?

     Now and again, when things get too much and I need a break, I like to drop out of sight, usually at night. I like to go into the mountains. I have some favorite secret locations I like to stay in. One is a cave. Other times when I need a...

    Today

    I wish I could vanish.  I want to melt into my chair...turn into air and reappear at home, in my bed, covers over my head.  I don't want to move, or breathe, or think.  I don't want anyone to see me today.  Whym is closed for business.  World...please...

    I Have To Hide..isolate Me From My Surroundings.

    Hi in here... I wish it was different..but I cannot live my life as most people do. Socializing, small talking, joining parties with people they know, and people they don´t know. I get stock within the first hour - and find it superficial and fake to small talk, and...

    Quiet

    Sometimes I drop out of sight just to give myself a break from life.  Sometimes I wish I could do it forever.

    Who Doesn't?

    I've joined or participated in several social networks, joined groups that grab my attention but every now & then I just drop out of sight(sometimes never to return). I'm sure it will happen on EP! This is because I give so much of my time & attention to them ...

    Time Out

    After a flurry of recent rejections I'm revenging myself on the universe by depriving it of me. My awesomeness has been subtracted from the total mass of awe available to keep the cosmos in harmony.  The homeostatic balance tipped slightly towards the mundane as I opted out; a...

    Socially Lazy

    I know I'm socially lazy and it's liberating to stay away from everyone else because I don't have to worry. I worry about offending people, looking stupid or frumpy or sad, or just being plain awkward. This habit is hurting more than helping. Sure I like my alone time very much...

    I'm Out Of Sight Right Now

    I dropped out of sight of everyone I know about a year ago. I spend my time a lone, reading, writing, cleaning, etc. I don't have friends anymore. It's best that way until I get rid of my demons.

    I Really Do!

    Just today, once again, I had to hear from a friend that I should remain in touch more. I should stop disappearing all of a sudden. So, I was thinking why do I really like to drop out of sight.I need it, and I guess, once in a while everyone does. The daily college routine wears...

    I Do This!

    My closest EP friends have noticed this about me.  I go through periods when I am very vocal and playful and may post a gadzillion comments on people's stories.Then there are other times when I am more withdrawn.  It has nothing to do with my friends - it is just a part of my...
