    Anywhere But Where I Am

    I was lucky, or maybe cursed, as a child that my father was military and I never lived anywhere for more than a few years. I have lived in many states and have been able to experience many parts of the country. Then I moved here, I have never lived anywhere that...

    Anywhere But Here

    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...

    I'm from a small town in North Louisiana,

    and I have spent my whole life here. I just wish that one day I could move to a new area far away from here. I think the most appealing thing about it is that you don't know anyone and no one knows you. Instant peace and quiet

    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...

    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...

    this town i live in is messed up. The damn people too. It's so freaking small that cities only half an hour away don't kniw who we are. It's pathetic. There is nothing to do. The closest form of entertainment is two cities away. So we have a post office and a park. Awesome. oh...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
