    I can FINALLY move out of my parents house this

    August. I am so looking forward to being away from my house and not have to deal with all the family drama. I can sit back in my own apartment, drink all the coffee I want, and chill! :D

    Some peoples lives are like a playground.

    Other peoples lives are battlegrounds. There are so many problems in my life concerning my finances, and my wifes poor health, that I sometimes want to escape. I just want to get in my truck and drive to "anywhere far far away". But my loyalty to her won't let me go. I can...

    It's a long story, but I want to run away from

    home. I'm on my spring break so this is the perfect time to do it before my home life gets worse. I have a place to stay (in Kansas City, Missouri), I just don't have a way to get there. I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If you have a car or want to know the whole story...

    Sometimes, like tonight,

    I look at my life and I wish I could just get up walk out the door and never look back. Take nothing with me. Leave every single piece of myself and who I am behind. I wouldn't even take my car I'd just walk and hitchhiker. Find a new identity and start all over from scratch...

    Everyone's temper is

    so volatile, and I'm tired of empathising, and trying to fix things, when they're not changing on their side But who am I to judge them, and say that they don't want to change?

    Yes - running away seems to be a frequent fantasy lately.   I know I won't do it, but I'm so sick of things the way they are.  I am not really unhappy, I am financially comfortable, have good relationships with my family, love my kids, love my home and neighborhood, the cars I...

    I hate how meaningless the routine of life is.

    We have jobs and obligations, we get up, try and create some economic value, get paid, pay bills and sleep again. If we have time we try and gloss over the cyclical meaninglessness by socialising over a few drinks or playing sports etc... all temporary simulations to hide how...

    enough away. Tonight, the voice of The Blonde will echo in my mind. Tonight, her vitriol and bitter words will steal my warmth. Tonight, in the battle between the Bottle and the Blonde, ... The Bottle wins.

    Sometimes I think about what it would be like

    to just go away and pretend to be someone else. I would go by a fake name and not share anything real about myself. This wouldn't be permanent but it would be a fun vacation from my life.

    I wish I could just run away from all of it;

    the pain, the abuse, the memories, the judgements, and everything else. Most of all I wish I could run away from myself, escape all of my thoughts and who I am.

    for a couple of years, but I don't have the balls to do it. I just want to go up one night take the car and drive away. No destination, no nothing, just me and the road driving into the abyss. It feels like I need a vacation from life itself.
