    And employers despise my history. So poor stays. Until a lottery won.

    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...

    When I see all of the violence,

    nonsense, whiners, lousy politicians, eroding civil liberties...I just feel like I want to buy up 350-500 acres on top of a mountain someplace, and leave everything and everyone behind. I own a 16 acre hobby farm right now, but I have neighbors and "urban sprawl" closing in on...

    I hate being in this area,

    in this country. Nothing is happening for me. It's so tedious. Wish I could just go to France and meet some new friends there and have fun...a new experience or an adventure. What have I got to lose?

    I am tired of everyday life

    and how we are supposed to live. I am supposed to work everyday and earn zero money. I walk with my dad and I talk to my dad but I never get paid by my dad. I just want to go off and take a vacation with my best friend

    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...

    I want to go to America.

    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:)

    Escaped to My Sister's House, Is This Far Enough Away?

    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...

    Do you ever feel like nothing fits

    and everything around you is uncomfortable? I stand in my house and the walls seem to close in on me. My drive to work feels like I'm going a million miles to nowhere. Work is work...nothing feels new or challenging. I feel like I'm in a bubble that is slowing deflating...

    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.
