I got an email the other day telling me that I need to renew my domain name.  That means this blog has been up for yet another year.  What have I learned? NOTHING!

Anyways, I am writing because I get gloomy sometimes.  It sorta helps me write down my thoughts.  Lately, whenever I get this way…I feel like running away.  Do you remember thinking about running away when you were little? I mostly remember having those thoughts when my family moved from Maryland to Florida.  What a change that was.  At first I was excited that we were moving.  Moving was always kind of an adventure when I was little.  My dad would get a new job, and we would pack up our things.  There would be a new house, a new room, a new neighborhood to explore.  But overall moving is not something you want to do that often when you are young. It has been something I have learned the hard way.

It was going to be the 4th elementary school where I was the new girl. I had no friends again.  My new school was Sweetwater Elementary.  It was definitely a downgrade from my old school.  The kids just didn’t seem too bright and they just weren’t as nice as my old classmates.  Even the teachers were unlikable. I remember thinking almost everyday that one day we would move back to Maryland.  Eventually, I realized that wouldn’t happen.  I was depressed to the point I actually thought middle school would be my savior. Middle school?  What a joke, but that’s a story for another day.

Apparently, there is no such thing as recess in these crappy Dade schools.  Ladies and gentleman your kids are missing out!  Also, P.E, what the heck is that?  You mean gym?  You know, that class we had in an actual gym… yeah that was not 100% pure torture like PE is here.  Also, PE is not a substitute for recess.  Recess was fun, we played on the jungle gym, kick ball and other fun games after lunch.  Maybe your kids might like that sorta thing?  In conclusion, Sweetwater Elementary sucked, College Gardens Elementary ruled 😛

Now I’m an adult and have yet to plant my feet down somewhere stable.  Living in Miami requires a ridiculously good job, a roommate or a significant other to share your expenses with.  Cut a girl some slack.  I don’t think I will live here past March so that has me thinking what I will do with myself.  I would like to ditch this city.  But I’m a big chicken.  A change is definitely needed.  What’s stopping me anyways?  Other people seem to do it. But I notice they have some sort of support or friends in other places.Well it is in my experience that if you don’t make changes, it will be forced upon you by something or someone.  And it may not be what you have been wanting.  Soooo…let’s see what happens.  There are already forces upon me.  Maybe I will talk about them some other day.  Anyways, thanks for reading.  🙂  Leave comments.  Leave experiences.  Say hello.  Thanks!

  1. I STILL feel like running away, so don't worry. Definitely not alone. I say you hit the road while you still can. I'm still trying to figure out how to do it once and for all. You won't have trouble finding work elsewhere. You've been in a steady position for forever. Just put yourself out there. You never know! Where would you considering going btw?

    • Yay! Thanks for replying. I'm not sure where I would like to move. I only really know ppl in NY, Cali and Texas. NY seems fun, but it may not be a good fit for me. The good part about your case is that you have a partner in crime now. I get nervous thinking that I will have to move to somewhere where I don't know anyone. You will at least have your mini family. P.S. If you move somewhere, maybe I will follow you 😉
