    Just For A Day.

    I'd love to get away. To somewhere that I can be who I am. I know where it is I can. I need a place where I can clear my head. Stop panicking, where I can learn how to eat again, where this place will teach me how to stop cutting myself. A place where I feel okay. I realise this...

    Away From What I Have Yet To Understand....

    But just to shut it all off for a moment. The thoughts....the urges....the pain. I feel like a frightened little girl at the moment....I feel like I am on the edge. I don't know what way I will fall....and I don't know if I care. There is so much going on right now....and I am...

    I think when I graduate high school I'm going

    to take a cruise. I've just been really stressed out and I need to be away for a while. The days are becoming monotonous.

    When I see all of the violence,

    You Think You're Finally Doing Alright But Then Everything Falls Apart.

    I live in a busy town, my parents are always working and i'm basically on my own. This town i'm living in is a mess, I don't like it, it's cold and the buildings are so high.. it almost looks like it never let the sunshine falls on the street. I've been sailing many times and...

    Looking For That Bit of Solitude I Can't Seem to Find Here.

    I constantly seek the peace and quiet that my life lacks. It actually seems like a contradiction since my life is pretty much dull and uneventful already, but I'm talking more about an inner peace, an inner quiet - somewhere I could just be away from everyone I know and forget...

    It's my happy place. My two favourite people are there actually my three favourite people are there. I love them all so much and they are the ones who truly understand me yet I can't be with them. I need them. I need to get away for a while. I love you Jess, RJ and Bug:)

    Life Is Not Going Well Right Now

    I haven't been working for a long time.  I've been depressed for almost two years. It seems like everyday all I do is look online for a job, get depressed and cry.   Somedays I don't want to get out of bed.  I've been to therapy and it did help a bit, but I just need a job...

    Let's Get Away

    Sometimes I question life. I don't know where I'm heading to. I don't know what's the purpose in life. I want to get away. I want to get a new perspective in life or have an appreciation in life again.

    You know, pack my bags

    and just escape for a little bit. Go somewhere without a plan. Be spontaneous. Go to a city you've never heard of. I really wish sometimes I could just do this for a little while, maybe find some peace and maybe find myself some more.
