    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.

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
