So, Where Do I Begin?

In my youth, about 9 months prior to leaving my family home, I was into keeping fit, going to the gym, I was a very adept boxer and an experienced kickboxer. This all changed as time went on...

In this and upcoming hubs, we will cover subjects such as:

  • Why I want to move out of my home town?
  • How I plan to do this?
  • What I have done so far? And,
  • How and why have the plans changed so far?

You'll also learn more about me, about the darkness that is beneath face value and about where my determination spans from.


So, why do I want to get out of here?

Well, it began three years ago. But let me take you back two years prior to this where I left home, I was fifteen years old (now twenty-one) and after spending months on the streets, at sixteen I was in my first hostel where I shared a room. My room mate, Jack, was a complete pot head. Prior to meeting him, I never once smoked it. After I met him, I smoked it every day and still smoke it now, I wish I hadn't. This is one of the reasons I wish to leave.

As you can already imagine, I am far from the conventional "good boy", but I have a good heart. I got in with the wrong crowd, three years ago. Oh, you thought Jack was bad because of the pot, no. I'm talking about thieves and worser, hardened criminals. Men and women and children who were into harder drugs and not a day went by where I wasn't shocked to see who is on "the wrong side".

A couple of years later, I find myself breaking into a house and long story short, I end up behind bars. That day I came out, I wanted out. I wanted out of my social circles and out of my city away from any criminal association. I feel I have nothing tying me down here. My motivation? My little girl.


So, now we have a bit of background... Stay tuned and we shall delve further into my mind and learn the reality of the darkest corners of the Western world; crime, poverty, spiralling mental health issues.

There is a lot going on.

In the next hub, you will learn WHY I want to leave, in depth. I will also be providing snippets of The Concrete Gardens, the real-time journal detailing the days leading up to getting out.

In my youth, here only fifteen years old shortly before leaving my parental home, I was often on stage performing spoken word. This talent soon diminished with my quality of life, amongst other aspects of my achieving personality.

      I'm one of a few admins on a site and we each have mupiltle computers, locations, and browsers we use.From what I can tell, your solution seems like it'll take care of all of that by just inserting your code problem is, where how/ does one use it?Obviously, I'm completely clueless on coding, I'm just a blogger who is tired of seeing 2/3 of our hits come from the admins (not to mention how much that's skewing the other results- notably time on site and bounce rate).Thank you for your help.
