    Getting Out Of Ones Comfort Zone Heals The Soul

    I love to travel. When I'm away from familiar surroundings I feel a sense of freedom. I'm able to hear myself think and de-stress. That's good therapy for me. It would also be great to have close friends to share it with.

    Cabin On The Lake

    I have often thought about where I want to live. As my name suggests, I don't really have a place I consider to be "home." I had an apartment while I was at school. I left school and am currently looking for an apartment and a job, while staying with my parents. I haven't...

    I feel like I already have a place away,

    but only mentally. I will exclude myself from everyone and everything, read a book or write, and have my earphones. For that brief moment in time I am in a place with the things I love and none of my problems exist. However, I'd like a place to go to physically. Where I really...
