    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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...
