Why I Prefer Living in the City

While my husband would happily have us scamper off to the country and seclude ourselves in nature, I prefer the smog-infested city. I understand the negative aspects of living in the city, as mentioned: smog; but also, crime, overcrowding, litter, etc. I’m sure the list goes on for most. But despite growing up in the suburbs, I wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else at this time in my life.

Truthfully speaking, I love the bustling streets. I love the culture infused into the city. The fact that I can have a cuisine from a different part of the world for every meal for a week has me planted here. The events that a city provides: concerts, festivals, galleries; all things that give me purpose.

Raised by educators, I was exposed to a variety of experiences from a very young age. Perhaps because of this, I am unable to forsake the uniqueness of a city. Despite its blemishes, I couldn’t keep myself from having new experiences on a regular basis.

So bring on the beautifully diverse crowds and the freeway graffiti.   (And yes, I am one of those people who is lulled to sleep by noise.) I invite you to join me, as I continue to explore!

    1. Thank you! I don’t know any different, really. Except through my travels. I always thought the intimacy of a small town would be nice 🙂
