I Wish I Lived Somewhere Else

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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
