    If I Could I Would

    I love my family, all of my family. I love my friends, all of my friends. But sometimes, I just want to get far, far away from everybody I know and start over somewhere where no one knows me. I would pack up all of my stuff, throw it in my car (if I had one) and drive to one of...

    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...

    Just Go Somewhere Completely New.

    I've always had this dream to just move somewhere that no one knows who i am. It could be a chance to have a semi-new life. I could be a completely different person if i want. Even though i've always lived in a city, i've always wanted to live in a small town or a secluded place...

    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...

    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 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 :)

    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 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
