    Getting Out Of Here

    I want to live somewhere else. I have had it having to drive back and forth 253 miles one way to see quality doctors and surgeons. I would love to move home back to Texas but my health will not allow me to for now. But later on this year I may have an opportunity to move to...

    Living In The Habitrail

    I want to move. I am like a hamster living in a habitrail who has explored every nook and cranny of its cage. There is nothing new here. Nothing exciting. No color. No stimulation. Just the same old woodchips, and as much as I dig and re-arrange the piles, it is still the same. I...

    I love the city I live in,

    and I love the area. I do NOT like my condo! Feels stuffy, no natural light and faces directly into another building.

    Just Want To Keep Moving I Guess

    I don't know why I want to live somewhere else. I'd be doing the exact same thing somewhere else that I am doing where I currently live. I don't know what it is - I just don't like living in any one place for long. I guess I get bored with the familiar surroundings. I have this...

    Have Not Left The Nest, Yet.

    I was born and raised in the city that I live in. I have seen many many changes in the city and the population explode from 400,000 to 1.4 million people. All I know is life in this city and one of my biggest dreams would be to experience life away from here. It is tiring, year...

    Boring Hometown

    For 22 years, I've lived in the same house in same neighborhood in the same city. It's actually an exurb, which is mostly residential and very little commercial. If you want to go someplace fun, plan on making a trip an hour away to the college town where the university is...

    A Place For My Freedom

    I want to be somewhere, where I can run as fast as I can, and spin and do whatever I like and watch the birds flying over my head, and the clouds smiling to me, and a place where I can  breathe fresh air, not pollution, and the smoke of cars every single place, and a place...

    A New Start

    I think we all have a sort of genetic code, as humans, that drives us to go somewhere else. If you live in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, or Detroit, you want to go to a small town or a different bigger city other than where you are from. Why is that? Who knows. Everyone has their...

    It's Irritating Here.

    I live in the Maldives and people love this place. White sandy beaches, the ocean, a bunch of small coral islands. I love it too, specially at night, but thats the only thing I like about here. It's too crowded and too closed up. Too much gossip because every house is a walk...

    Kyoto

    Right now I am living in Nagoya, Japan. I don't know exactly where I would want to live, but if I had to move right now I would pick Kyoto. I lived there before. Had a great doctor I really liked. Everything was convenient. I think I want to live alone.
