    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,

    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...

    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...

    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?

    It must be nice to have an SO

    who surprises you with nice things once in a while. The husband of a friend of mine flew her to a major city (he's a pilot) for her birthday, where he took her on a shopping spree for a nice outfit, had appointments set for a massage, facial, makeover, hair appointment and...

    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:)

    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.

    A short trip away would be great.

    Just to get away from the Christmas Crap around me. It's not a pleasant time of year and I dread it every year.

    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...

    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...
