    Black Men, White Girl And Sexual Harrassment

    I am sick and tired of being verbally raped by black men on a daily basis. Every day when I walk to work, I get sexually harrassed by at least one black man. And it's different than when a white man harrasses me. The white man gives up when he's ignored. But these black guys...

    My Turn to Run

    Sometimes I just feel like running. I want to get away from the world I live in. I'm not depressed, I'm not lonely, I'm not angry; I'm just bored with where i'm at and want to do something new. There are times when I feel like I'm not needed anymore so, running from it all...

    Most of today was one of those days.

    I started thinking again. Wayyyy too much. My alters weren't helping. They didn't make things MUCH worse though... Not today. Sigh. For most of the day I wrote in my journal that my friend got me for Christmas. Best present I've ever gotten. I wrote three or four pages in it...

    To Find Me....

    I'd like to go away, and find myself. I've moved to a country for a guy and that didn't pan out. Then I started seeing someone else. I've never given myself the time to get to know me, away from distractions. I'm in a relationship with a wonderful guy but my old skeletons...

    Life Is Too Short

    I believe life is too valuable a gift, not to use it to the best you can.  I think that my gift of life would be enriched through travel, as it is too short to remain stagnate and in one place.  I have been discussing this a great deal with a very dear friend lately...

    I Want To Disappear.

    I am so tired of this life. I wish there was some way that I can disappear into thin air and be gone forever. I wish I had never been born. I don't know where to turn and I feel like I'm going insane.. What the hell should I do..

    Just For 2 Days

      I'd like to go to the nearest "city"-where nobody knows my name and with 2,000$ in my pocket-just to shop, eat, pray and meditate. Fill my car up, and just drive and think. Now, don't get me wrong-my home life isn't terrible (it's only me and mom)-but just to re...

    I want to get away from the world.

    The only way I've been able to do that is by listening to music. As much as I love reading it's not the same. As much as I love movies they're not enough. Honestly I've thought about drugs. I have, I confess. Alcohol doesn't have much of an effect on. Other then be...

    A Break.

    I guess we all deserve A BREAK. A time where we can be all alone, can go some place far away, a place where we can reflect , a place where we can be what we are and think about what we're supposed to think.

    I'm rarely overwhelmed. Today is different.  Right now, as I sit here, my heart is heavy.  There isn't even one specific reason for this feeling.  Yet it's there, circling me, weighing me down.  This feeling that I am unfamiliar with wants me to just run away.  Leave it all...

    Were My Ancestors Sponges?

    I have this unquenchable desire to pursue the unknown, it is as if my brain wants to soak up every possible piece of relative knowledge it finds. So that leads me to have this need to get up and go somewhere constantly, be it to the next town over or thousands of miles away.
