    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

    Gotta Get Away

    I want to move to Texas. The south is so beautiful. And most of all, it's not cold in the winter! I've started working on my plan this evening. I have a deadline.

    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 think about it more often then not.

    I wonder what else is out there and who else is out there. There has to be more. Everyday that goes by I feel more and more trapped by where I live. It's a small town with small minds and I wonder if I'll ever be able to get out. I've also wondered if leaving is really going to...

    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...

    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.
