    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.

    Been living in Spain

    for the last three years and then I lost my job and decided to go back to my home-country (an eastern european country where life is not really easy). So, it's been 6 months since I am back home, and I feel so depressed and like I don't fit in here anymore. I feel home-sick for...

    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.

    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 :)

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
