    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.

    I Dont Know What To Do!!!

    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...

    Life... she has gotten very serious.

    Very fast. What happened? I am 23, finished my Honors degree at university and working as a Business Analyst and Project Manager. Needless to say, I am doing well. But I am not happy. I've got everything I want to buy. Not happy. I can feel my soul dying from loneliness and...

    "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

    Who Am I?

    Apparently, I'm an exhibitionist. That's the new story around my school right now. I don't ever recall wanting to expose myself, but apparently I sleep with people on roofs. How that is possible on my gravelly slanted roof I'm not entirely sure, but whatever. I'm sick of...

    Do I stay or do I go?

    I dislike my job, it's okay money and it's secure. But I just do not enjoy it, which is the first time in 6 years of working for this company that I can say that. I recently met a girl who has just quit her job and decided to go travelling. Travelling is something I've always...

    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.

    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.

    Anyone else think living alone on an island

    would be great? Living in the middle of nowhere on a 45 acre farm in isolation - completely desolate in solitude. No human interaction at all. Need to get out of here. The loneliness is unbearable.
