    I think about it more often then not.

    I Want To Be Somewhere Far Away

    I'm so sick of my stupid little life here in this stupid little town. I just want to go somewhere else. I'm sick of people acting like I suck and I just want to leave. It sounds complainy and annoying and I don't even care. I don't care what I sound like. I just need to leave

    Rotting Roots

    Since 5-6 years I've been here, planted in this big space, in Earth's ***, I must think I never ever thought about being happy, having a good life or anything. In fact, I come to the conclusion I have lost way too much of my life as to consider what I've earned.But what is wrong...

    I Think...

    I think everyone has the dream of being whisked away to a place far away from everything so you can just forget it all. No more problems. No more pain. No more worries... if anyone else feels like that I think we need a vacation. lol :)

    I Want To Move But I'm Scared!

    It sounds silly to say but I'm scared to move out of state by myself!  I'm an adult, about 2 weeks away from turning 32, so I shouldn't be afraid for crying out loud.  But it's a pretty major life change and I'm intimidated by it.  I've known for a long time I've...

    Why I Want To Relocate

    I don't hate it here, I actually like it here. If you're curious I live in Indianapolis, IN. I hate the idea of living far away from my mom and my brother. I also hate the idea of living in Indiana for my entire life without at least taking a chance or even a visit somewhere else...

    I hate this. I hate being in all this negativity. I just want to leave and move somewhere where no one even knows my name. I want a new identity. I'm sick of this life.

    Far Away In the Country

      Somewhere where no one knows me. New people. Of course I would miss some people, but this is just to hard to stay. If I could have my way I swear to God I would pack up, not tell anyone and leave, but I won't go to a life on the streets, at least I don't think I will.
