    I wake up every morning

    and it's the same routine. Get up, get dressed, go to school, pay attention, go home, study, watch tv, get on the internet, write some, go to bed. Wake up, do it all over again. It's the same thing everyday. I never thought I'd be living such a mundane lifestyle. How could I...

    House is too big, sits in a secluded area no

    neighbors around. Nice, but a lot to mow and take care of. I travel for my job so I'm seldom home, this leaves my wife to do all of it. Well that not fair. Time to downsize and get practical. Give her some mommy time with our daughter. She'll be gone in a flash.

    I'm ready to embrace the single life.

    I'm done crying. He may have left me but in truth I was alone for at least the last three years of our marriage. I didn't have to mourn the "death" of my marriage as I did that throughout the ten years we were together. What I mourned was the death of my hopes and dreams...

    I Need To Change So Much

    When my marriage started to fall apart I fell apart too. I've let the years of pain and anger change me, and I know there's no way I can ever be the same as I was before. I don't have to be so different, though. I think I've felt like I have to be broken and lost until my...

    Getting real tired of the place I'm in now.

    This just isn't cutting it, and I'm starting to loose my mind I swear. So instead of playing the poor me why me game I'm gonna get up, and brush myself off. Made a promise to myself that from now on things are gonna be different.

    I Don't Think It'll Ever Change.

    My mother told me the other day, after one of her drunken episodes, that my siblings will always think me as a child. It did bother me because I know that it's true, and no matter what I do, or try to do, they won't ever see me as a grown adult. Sure, they'll look at my age, and...
