    Stepping Into the Shadows

    I like to think up little adventures in my head that I'd never in my life get away with... It's fun to imagine what could happen, though. Who I'd meet, what I'd see, where I'd go.. I'd step into the shadows.. I'd walk out of my house one day, leaving a note stating that I...

    Gypsy Seeks Clan

    I always dreamed of reverting back to the ancient ways. I want to pack up a bag, join a group of travelers and go from place to place. We could leave rules behind, learn the dances and the stories. But nobody seems to think like me. :(

    It's so hard trying to be yourself around others

    who think they know you better than you know yourself. Others who fear change and are so closed minded to the fact that people change and people grow up. I do fear how others view me now but it's only because of what I've been through. I'm trying to shake it off but it's best...

    My dream one day is to move far away with the

    love of my life and children. Drop both sides of our family and just finally be happy together and see the world.

    Dream About It Every Day

    I want nothing more than to just take off. Start over. And do things right somewhere else. I could see myself living somewhere like Canada... I feel so trapped here.

    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

    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.    ...
