This City Dweller

Have you ever asked yourself...

"If I could do anything at all, for three months, what would I do?"

I mean, have you ever really thought about that?  It's a great question, really because it doesn't just ask what you want, but to just suspend reality for a moment and picture yourself doing exactly what you've always wanted without the retribution of losing everything you have now.

I know exactly what I would do.

I would live in a city.

I have always been so drawn to city life.  I love the hustle bustle and the energy that seeps out of those urban streets.  I love the idea of walking and/or biking everywhere.  I love the idea of knowing the places only the locals know.  Meeting friends at a bar down the street or writing in a coffee shop.  Exposed brick, public transportation, street performers, the culture, the inspiration. I want to inhabit the bones of a city teeming with life.  I know there is a lot not to love about city life, and I don't know if I could do it forever.  That's why I just want to do it for three months.  Three beautiful months.

I'm right there with you. I always think I hate living out in the rice paddies and wish we were stationed at the base up in Seoul instead. Until I go there and I remember I hate people and would give anything to be back in my rice paddy again. There are a LOT of people in Seoul :| BUT the idea is still appealing. Maybe if I could do it without kids ;)

I'm not sure if I like city life. I do like being close to things... I better get used to it, since we'll be in a city for 2 years in Korea!

Beautiful pics! I love city life - I enjoy being surrounded by people and tall buildings, and always having something to do.

I love cities. And knowing the places the locals know. And knowing the locals. Wonderful. :)

I agree with you 100 percent. I might not want to raise a family in a city (though I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to it), but I think the urban lifestyle you described sounds wonderful!
