    Runaway If You Want to Survive

    Wouldn't it be nice just to live somewhere where I can have healthcare?  Or maybe somewhere that I don't have to cringe whenever I want to breathe for fear I'm breaking some sort of law?  I know America isn't as strict as some other countries, but it's not exactly the...

    The Usa Is Not For Me

    I really feel I'm better off somewhere else. The government is all a giant mess, & I never feel all too happy or safe here. I would rather live in some "oppressive" third world than the greatest damn country on the planet! That's one other thing that gets me, The US is so self...

    Is it possible to start a new life alone abroad?

    It seems to take a lot of courage... And I really envy those people who dares to love overseas alone .... But how to I move all my things to another country? Do I have to be rich to do all these ?

    Sure, But Not For Good

    The thought of being somewhere fresh, new, and completely explorable is very alluring to me. But I do not think I would ever leave the United States permanently because I love this country, flaws and all.

    I don't think the United States is a "bad"

    place. It has it's good and its bad like everywhere else. When it comes to freedom of thought and the general behavior of the people, we have a lot of freedoms I think because of our "rights". Had I stayed in the Caribbean, I would've been bogged down by religious ideologies and...

    Usually, things I think about are not worth thinking about. So when there's actually something that should be thought about, I'll think about it for a good hour or so.
