    I'M Hoping The Last 10 Years Amount To Something.

    At last. I've been putting together the necessary steps toward leaving this shithole once and for all. I know how fragile these things can be, no matter how close the pieces are to all falling into place, so I'm trying to curb my enthusiasm. I live in a community that has done...

    One day Somewhere a little warmer Where people are less cold Even a thick jacket here Stands defenseless.

    Grass Is Really Greener

    Wish I didn't live here and do truly believe it would be better off if I was elsewhere, I'm in nj, and I feel I belong in New York, however I'm agoraphobic and can't get myself to leave, can't wait to kick this panic in the ***!!

    I can't wait until I leave

    for college tbh. Florence, SC is a great city but offers little opportunities! I'm always down for the recreational stuff which is something Florence lacks lol.

    Sometimes I just want

    or wish to get out the city of where I live. It's nice and all but living there for 14 yrs I don't think it's nice anymore. I wish to move to another state with better jobs and education. Still on the east coast though.

    No one at home really knows how I feel.

    I only want them to talk to me and spend time with me. I try my best to please them and I do a lot for them. Not even a minute of their time they give me if I tell them how I feel they think Im complaining .... If I tell them what I think they ignore me. But I still love them.

    Small Town In Louisiana

    I have lived in Louisiana for almost 11 years now and all I can say is I hate it more than anything. Most of the people here are homophobic, devout, alcoholic, pot smoking, hunting rednecks who love guns and big trucks. However some of the people here are the complete opposite of...

    I Hate Living In Maine

    Its hard to make a living and the winters are too long. The people are fine. It is the best place to spend summers. I long for sandy beaches and palm trees, but I am in love with a wonderful woman who likes it here.
