    Hi~ I am a 19 Korean male student.

    I spent most of my childhood in a American school for 10 yeas. (I was dragged by my parents.) I am very familiar with American culture and atmosphere. But a couple years ago, I was (once again forced by my parents) to come back to Korea. I failed to apply for college and now my...

    I Hate This City

    The city I live in is hell. I can't stand it here, when I graduate I'm gone. I can't stand this place, I need somewhere open and less stressful. This city is a filthy hole, nothing interesting ever happens here, nothing good. I need to be free of this place before I go mad.

    "Home"

    I need to leave. I can't stay "home" anymore. I'm suffocating. That place, my mother, the whole thing has me in a choke hold. I can almost feel fingers around my neck when I'm there. "Home" is starting to feel more like "Hell." I need to get out. Soon

    Cut Ties

    I never put a lot of value in the opportunity to escape. I always figured it was best to stay, face your fears and problems in the face and deal with it. In spite of my vulnerabilities and weaknesses, facing all my demons seems like a pretty strong thing to do. Fight or flight...

    Sometimes I wanna run away to

    that place and I don't know if that place even exists. Am I even able to obtain it in this life? In this body? In this world? I don't know. It's like an even-lasting wanderlust for Wonderland.

    Everything has come to the point

    where I am so close to a sigh and walking out of this life. This is not me. I am invisible and I have not the strength to hold this mask any longer. I need to get out. Now.

    No Escape

    Alright I'll start of with a confession. I do some things that society doesn't like, and now doesn't like me for. I smoke weed. Hey I'm a teenager. Thats what we do right? Ignore our parents and try stuff for ourselves. That's how we learn. To make a long story short I got caught...

    I'm only 20, and many of you might think I'm just young and acting out, but I really need to just leave. I've never really fit in to society, always been an outsider and a loner. The only time people would ever come to me for anything is when they needed something. I've always...

    Finding A Way Out

    I have found a lot of comfort in the fact that I did not go to school in Florida, and that I, indeed, did go to community college. When I was sixteen, I wrote a particularly scathing little piece about my family life, which was a gross overstatement. And here I am, a little over...

    I Need A Plan

    I know I need to get out of this situation but honestly have no clue how. I have a two month old baby, no job and not a dollar to my name since he controls all the money. When a person is ready to leave an abusive relationship, how do they start?

    Where's The Exit?

    At home, I'm surrounded by madness. A madness that's threatening to consume me. And I want to leave, escape before I get swallowed up. I'm looking for that exit to paradise.

    I Don't Know How To Escape

    I think escape is the right word. I live in a three storey house, with a garden, and huge walls that surround it. I feel like I'm in prison. I hardly ever leave it. I don't even go to school. I study online. That was my choice. But I really don't know how to study in Arabic. I'm...
