    In Order To Revamp My Whole Lifestyle, I Need To Close The Doors Of The Past

    Lately, I feel as though the place that I call my hometown no longer feels like home.  At the age of 30, I am stuck in a community where jobs are non-existant, the entertainment is lacking, and the average age of the townspeople is well over 75.It's so frustrating, knowing that...

    Nostagia Is Poison

    I've come to the conclusion that I'm in the wrong generation. A friend and I were talking about how things use to be. Naturally, things change, but what do you do when you just need to rebel a little? My boyfriend is ten years older than me and I listen to all these stories and I...

    So Long, And Farewell...

    I just want to walk away from it all (friends and family), and embark on a journey of self-discovery. Of course, I don't expect anyone to miss me.

    I've been feeling SO restless

    and frustrated recently. The strength of my feelings has actually scared me (really scared me) on occasion. It's like, I don't know, someone has been slamming my head into the ground, over and over again, or holding my head underwater, and I'm trying to keep control of...

    I Want To Get Away!

    Sometimes (like now!) I just feel the need to get away. And I'm not talking about hiding out in my room or going out for a ten-minute "cool down." I'm talking about going on a loong road trip, just me, myself and I, get a hotel and start a new life under another alias for a month...

    Get Away, Get Happy

    All I dream about is running away from everything. Running from my past, my baggage, my friends, family, home, memories. I need to disappear from every aspect of my life that I have tainted and fractured. Maybe if I wasn't there for a while, it would allow those places to repair...

    Just Want To Disappear And Start Again.....

    Everyday feels wrong to me here. I just feel like I need to run and hide. Nothing has gone right for me ever. It's come to the point where I feel disappearing is the only answer. Just walking out the door not knowing what direction I'm going or where ill end up. That to me seems...

    Every week seems to be the same thing: Go to school, go to work, do homework. I need to take a trip! Just go where I cannot be contacted and just stay there for as long as it takes to get my **** together, and evaluate my life. I want to go to the Fjords of Norway; just leave...

    I don't know where to start because we all know how complicated life is. I'm just desperate, desperate to feel beautiful, accepted, desperate to be listened to, to be understood. Aren't we all? Merry Christmas, right? I can't control the feelings inside of me from escaping into...

    Just Want to Run Away

    What I think I need is a very long extended vacation from my life. From everything and everyone. I wish I could just hop on a plane to some tropical destination and just lay on the beach alone. No problems, no drama, just peace. Just the sound of the waves crashing and while I...

    Sometimes... You Just Need To Get Away.

    Been stressed to the max. Dealing with new feelings I didn't know I had. And it's really unusual for me to feel like this. I'm a very happy, go-lucky person. So I think I just need to get out of town and do something. Visit friends or some such things. Gah. Ideas?
