    Journal Entry #13

    I graduated high school; I am now in college and looking for part time work to pay off college but have not found anything yet. It feels like a prison just looking at the same four walls. It seems that when I do go out it’s either to the grocery store or necessities that I need...

    I've been home-schooled

    for awhile and I'm pretty out of shape. But I've lost 30 pounds in the last 2 months on my diet, which is good I guess. I've been in an online school since 8th grade and started failing last year. My parents decided on not making me go back in September, so I didn't. I planned...

    I've spent my time in my house

    for days doing nothing, but watch tv, and play the Xbox every once and awhile, and not talking to anyone for days, and I'm getting tired of never having anyone to talk to.

    Homebody By Choice

    While I do have social anxiety, my desire to stay at home is mostly a choice, not a feeling of being trapped.   I work a full, 7-day week every other week (yes -- I do work), meaning I get weeks off in between.  During those weeks off, I will run a few errands on one of those...

    It's Occasional

    I love to go out and have fun with the few friends I have. I'm outgoing and love to make people laugh. I enjoy being outside with my dog or going to an amusement park randomly. From time to time, though, I will stay in my house and not leave for days on end. Not only that, but I...

    Feeling Trapped And Lonely

    I hate being inside without anything to do. I really want to go out and walk for a while in the sun and go to new places and chat with people, but for some reason I can't. I don't feel safe in my neighborhood and going other places takes money.
