I’ve always wanted to run away.
Like since the age of four or five, I remember actively planning what I’d pack, who I’d utilize as help, and where I’d end up as a final stop.
I knew what bus routes could get me out of my city, county, and even state while I was in elementary school.
In middle school I saved money in hopes of a one way ticket away – to anywhere.
In high school I pushed myself to near exhaustion earning the highest grades I could because I knew a scholarship to university would take me away. I earned it.
In college, I ran away.
I’ve been running ever since.
