    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 Am A Mess

    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...

    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...

    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?
