    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...

    Stuck In A Rut

    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...

    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...

    I am so trapped in this hell hole they call

    home. I am being hit and shouted at almost everyday. Seriously. I seriously need to get away from this place. If there is anyone who can help me, I would you my life. If they dont kill me here, I might as well kill myself.

    I Shouldn't Have This Much Stress Right Now.

    I'm stressed out by people always expecting everything from me. I'm expected to keep perfect grades, I'm expected to be in band and be a good Band Captain, I'm expected to have money even though I have no job, I'm expected to be at church every Sunday morning, Sunday night, and...

    I need to get away, not to another location,

    but from certain patterns. I'm too patient, too forgiving. As someone very influential in my life and extremely intelligent and experience once told me, you can't be a pleaser the rest of your life. You need to think about your own happiness, but what if what makes me happy is...

    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?

    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...

    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...
