    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    Before I go into what triggered this I feel I need to add a little background. My boyfriend and I have been together for just over six months.  We've had, so far, an amazing relationship based on an almost two year friendship and our common hobbies, likes...

    wanna go. I hate school more than anything idk why. I feel really crappy right now & I don't feel like being around a lot of people & acting like I'm fine bc I don't feel fine. I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed but it seems like I've been doing that every day now.

    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.
