    Start Again

    I just feel like, now that my life here is so messed up, and I have been so quiet and weird and awkward for so long, I want to move, start again somewhere else, make new friends, be a different person - the better side of me that I am unable to be where I am now. Nobody here...

    About 30 Minutes Away....

    Just far enough that family would have to call before coming over. Mahahah! I've never lived alone. I find that I'm craving it quite a bit now. I'll never actually do it though. It would crush momma & she can't afford this house without me. So I stay, but it is something I...

    Anywhere Else

    I know everyone disses small town but this just isn't the same. I don't hate this place because it's small, although I do hate that too, I hate this place because it's full of racist sexist ********. Conservative Christians who seem to think that they're God and they can judge...

    Not That I Don't Like Where I Live

    I do like living in Florida. I like the weather here, pretty much summer all year round. But I would like to have a house in Europe, probably England. I really do love it over there so much, but I don't think I could survive a winter over there, so I would still have a house...

    I Surely Do

    It's tough being where I am right now. It wears me down, it's draining and at times down right depressing. My heart is not here. It is with the woman of my dreams who lives in a little town very far from me. I want to go to her. I want to say to hell with my job. I want to leave...

    This is probably going to seem lame, but I'd love to live in Wisconsin. I've been there a handful of times and love the area and the people. The people I've always come into contact with were a total 180 from the people I'm around in my everyday life.   Besides, I want to...

    Sometimes

    I don't feel this way all the time, but sometimes I wish I lived in a big city.  Right now I am living in the town I grew up in, after being away for 7 years.  I don't hate it, well not as much as I did during my teen years.  I lived by the beach for the...

    I Am Thankful

    I have lived in this little country my whole life.  It has shaped me as a person.  It has exposed me to many things that I never would wish to see again, but within that it also give me this miraculous experience of seeing people move on after 30 years of war and...

    My Home

    I see this house it is on the water in a forest near mountains. It is on a 20+acre property that it shares with a small exclusive bed and breakfast resort that I also own. I see myself kayaking, hiking and eating dinner and talking to guests everyday. I don't know where in the...
