    I feel trapped. I don't know what I am doing

    with my life and I feel unhappy. There is only one person keeping me here, and he's unhappy too. I just want to feel alive again. I want to feel the ocean on the tips of my toes. I need to get out of here. I'm tired of waiting for my life to start. I want it to start now.
