    I have two lists that I have built up over the last two years.Not on paper, but in my head. I should write them down, but I would just lose them. I always lose my lists, so I keep these tucked firmly in my brain. I figure no one else needs to see them anyway, because if I'm gone...

    I'm a little freaked out about moving to an

    actual "city". 200,00+ people is a lot to me. I've lived in a town with 472 for 5 years now...and before then it wasn't much better. At least I'm hopeful for the possibility of friendship and possibly a sense of belonging.

    I Need To

    This way of life is killing me, bit by bit. I have no purpose, no hope, nothing to look forward to. Sometimes it's hard to remember how it feels to be alive.
