    I'm Not A Second-class Citizen

    I know why they want to keep me here. It's obvious that they're afraid to lose their children. But I've got to break loose. I am almost 19 years old, and I always told myself that when I was 18, I would leave my parents' house. I just knew that I'd move away to a University, and...

    Not Sure How To Go About It....

    Way back when, probably from ages 12-15, more or less, I used to think I'd move out as soon as I hit 18: get a job, get a house, get married, have a kid. Obviously, I was crazy, but that's a story for another day, lol. After 15 or 16 or whenever, I stopped having that drive and...

    Toxic Demographics

    For several years, I have felt discontent with the demographics of my parents' neighborhood. I felt the frustration bubbling up when I was in HS and wishing that I had people my age living on my street. Being the popular kid in HS, I was able to keep it at bay. Once reality of...
