Get me out of here!

"I never really gave up on breaking out of this 2-star town" -"Read My Mind" by The Killers

I think that's my favorite line from that song. I personally interpret it as wanting to get the hell out of someplace that suffocates you. My interpretation is probably completely wrong, as it usually is, but it fits me :P

These days, all I can think of is getting out of this stupid little town that I grew up in. It's technically a small rural suburb of a city (but the city is small and completely useless), but life is so boring here! When you grow up in one place where the routine never changes and where nothing changes, you feel like you're suffocating. Whatever you do, you know your parents will find out within hours and there's pretty much no other way to get around except having your parents drive you around or driving yourself. All I really want to do is get as far away from here as possible and live in a big city, where I can decide what I want to do and when I want to do it. My biggest dream is to move to London, make a bunch of British friends (with awesome accents) and just hang there. Of course, that's not entirely practical, but let me dream.

My mom, however, says that she won't let me move further than a 30-mile radius away from home. Hm..that just might get me to another boring suburb if I'm lucky.


  1. I understand how you feel. I've lived in both a small town and a big city. Both have their charms and drawbacks. Cities are exciting, non-stop, and everything you could want is at your fingertips. But, they are also noisy, much more dangerous, and not very calming.

    I've always wanted to live by the water. :) Of course, I could do without the threat of hurricanes. :/

    Ugh, I guess there is no such thing as the perfect place. :(

    I'm so happy you found my blog--I'm now following yours as well. :)

  2. wow i can only imagine how suffocating it is for u. I was in the same position some years back, but thankgoodness i finally left for college last year and not only did i leave my city, i left the continent entirely. i left lagos (in Nigeria) for houston. feels good to be outside my parents radar for once lol


Your comments are like cake to me. I can never get enough.
