    And I Will

    I am so ready to leave. Had enough of this place and these people.  Working some more, saving up some money and then I am gone.  Just have to work out the details.  Such as where I'm going.  You know.

    If I could live anywhere I'd move to the UK

    because I'd be in utter bliss just listening to their accents all day long.

    Living in the city, i feel lonely,

    whether im standing or walking in a crowd or surrounded by friends and family. Moving away may or may not solve my loneliness but sometimes i just feel like hopping on a plane and getting away and starting anew

    Moving!

    Caught, in Iowa, in the middle of my most depressed state. I needed out. I needed to get away from it all. My sister came to the rescue and let me move to Missouri. Everything is going so much better and I can actually smile without it being fake. Although I didn't move too far...

    To Be Happy...

    I think what I need in my life to be happy is to move. Not just down the street, but to another state. I can see and feel myself getting happier if this were to happen. I've got so many toxic relationships here at home that I think a fresh start would be best.    ...

    I'm tired of my life.

    I want to move away from where I am. Never been close to my family, people are cruel, no one is real or genuine. I feel like I'm strangling, cannot breathe, I just want to be where I can relax. I do not have to explain myself, no more struggling to pay bills. So tired

    Australia

    I would love to move to Australia when I retire from military life.  Sell all my worldly possessions and move to the outback.  Buy some property on the water and open up a fishing tackle shop.  Maybe even fish every once in a while too! Can't wait!

    I Want To Move Far Away

    It's odd how we tie our current goals, fears, and so on to things that have happened in our childhood. I find this strange. I have always had the desire to move far away; whether it was to England, Brazil, Australia, and more recently Japan, I've always had this desire to escape...
