Oh yeah, getting emo again, (slashes wrist.....just kidding) I think at a certain point in our lives we were in a place we hated and we wish we were somewhere else or there was this even you want to witness with your nekkid eye but you cant. Lets say a concert or sports event you want to watch live but you cant, TV is your only way, Or maybe the birthday of the person you love, but you cant because you have work, Your mind wanted to be in another place but you cant because of conflicts, responsibilities and more issues. You wanted to be somewhere else or witness something in person but you cant. Anyone who wanted to share their experiences regardless in a situation like what I said, A certain moment you wish you was there but its on the other side of the world.

Hello there. long time no see. Sorry. Well, I have too many. Last year my favorite band came to the US. But I had bills to pay, and dealing with some other things that I couldn't spend my money on the concert. So, not only that it was their last tour, they are going to retire, and I will never have the chance to see them live ever again. In fact, I have never seen them live. Ugh! That's what happens when you are a huge fan of bands that are 40 years older than you.

Hey long time no see, Hope to see you more again, At this moment I wish i was on the beach soaking under the sun but here I am, In a cold boring office because I want to live, I have bills to pay and everything as well. I had missed so much stuff like concerts and even video game tournaments (I use to be active)

Hey, sorry. I moved to another state, been trying to settle in and all. I am going to be more active. The beach, that's a nice place. My new home is close to the ocean shore and is paradise.I wish I was there now, but I am here instead unpacking a few boxes.

Haha! I have lots of moments like that! One of them is when I was jobless. Every year, we a a festivity in which we (I and my college friends) used to be together celebrating with the occasion. We have the pastillas and lechon festivals. There is street party. I hated it because I was jobless then that time and I wanted to go meet them there but I just couldn't. Last year, I still wasn't able to be there cause of my work.....

There is a certain point in my life were I was Jobless and it drives me nuts to stay at home all day. But things get worst when you have a Job and your working hours gets longer.

I agree. I am so stressed out now. I always wish that it was the end of the school year so I can take a rest and face the computer all day like I used to do when I was jobless.

Hi Captain, Many many of these for sure... Because of whatever - my health, my being jobless or whatever, but there are many places I want to be but I cannot... My dearest cousin got married and I could not attend the wedding because I cannot travel in the winter to that city(the Recent), The accident of the Purushottam Express in 1995 and I wished I was not on that train(the Past)

Accept your fate! (nostalgic of a corny moment in a good show) Kidding, you can only make the best of your life at the moment and in the future. I've suffered from depression since I was thirteen, been on meds and off of it. The trigger? Well I was stuck in a place and couldnt get away, literally. I was in a country where fast food franchises haven't touched down on, department stores dont exist and there was only one school to go to with 25 kids in your class clumped in groups of boys and girls. When your group rejects you then there is nowhere to go, you're and outcast and the other outcasts are just as messed up about it as you and dont want to be near you. TV was no escape there were only five english channels and none of them satisfies your anger and you wish that you could just go away but you dont want to ruin your parents happiness because they like it there and your siblings have friends there and where do you have to go anyway? You have a responsibility to stay strong for those people... But in the end it bites out of you and you feel like imploding. In life you have to make choices. You should do what makes you feel happy, and if other people cant understand that, then you know how much they care about your happiness, and you can continue to live because those people arent as important as you think they are. The key is to explain it in terms that they could understand.

Few months ago I have a vacation and when I realized its my last day, I felt so bad, Its like wanted it to last, a life were I was carefree and have no worries. I kinda knew your situation, You know the pressure of school, The groupings of boys and girls and you have to endure making friends with them even-though you hate them to prevent being miserable. There are only 3 English speaking channels at my place and TV plays nothing but soap operas about Poor girls who fell in love with rich boyfriends with families who doesn't like her because she is poor. I'm in a country where everyone wants to play MMORPG videogames while I love console and arcade games. I also hate the music industry is heading to, wishing I was in a country where people buy music that doesn't suck. It feels so good to release what is inside our chest isn't it? I just want to release this.
