    Out On My Lonesome

    I wish I could just get me a place out in the middle of the cold nowhere forest. Build a house there and mill out the rest of my days there. LOL I'm so young but I want to pretty much retire and go rough it. Hunt my food and live at one with nature.  I'm just...

    A Difficult Concept

    My life began strange, I wasn't supposed to survive the heart condition i was born with. For the first few years of my life I was watched constantly and checked on, it was mind-numbing for my family I'm certain. Eventually the news came that i was going to be okay, and my family...

    Indiana To North Carolina...Or Somewhere.

    I don't hate my family, my friends, or my hometown. I love them very much and I know that they love me. And I know moving so far won't mean I won't have problems wherever I end up. I've just been finding myself feeling more and more unhappy lately. It seems that I've blinked my...

    Been there, done that a few times.

    I feel like I made a blank trip moving to L.A. I come where EVERYONE is familiar, & I STILL get treated the same dirty way as I got treated by my family. People here are hard & mean for no reason. I can't even spark up a conversation with anyone.
