    Far, Far, Away....

    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.

    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...

    Im 24 and recently (willingly) moved back to

    Ohio in March after graduating school in New York. I love it here and the cost of living is much more affordable than in NY (obviously). I've been staying with a friend (i pay them "rent") and I finally got so fed up with the situation that I got an apartment. I have a full-time...

    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...

    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.

    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 :)

    All of my closest friends have moved away. I'm single. Work at a pizza place and live with my lesbian parents. Thinking I might just go ahead and kill myself.

    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...
