I live in a town called Brighton in merry old England. What I both like and dislike about this town is exactly the same... It reminds me of my ex-girlfriend. Cherished memories, but living inside a constant reminder of our past life here is difficult. In time they will become happy memories instead of painful ones, but until that day, I need to leave this town.
that's no fun, but you're right... in time, it won't be so hard to live there. the memories will be happy ones...
born and raised in la. LOVE the city for the culture and so many things to do here.
bad? too much traffic and too congested with people. Theres so much more beauty to our city than what media makes it to be...
We just moved here, and we like that it is close to work... we were driving an hour one way... now it's about a 5 minute trip. As for the town itself, we live right across the street from a 2 year college campus but it has no dorms huge facilities so no issues there. The bars downtown suck, you will spend more time in line at Wal Mart than you did in the store, Sears closed, and there are a million roundabouts. There's really nothing to do, however we are only ten miles away from the tourist trap of Wisconsin Dells, which again, there is nothing to do there when you live there because you've done it all already sooo many times. The grocery stores are quite expensive. We have turned into home bodies.
Like being close to work and that it's not crime infested and that it is quiet. Also thankful for Aldi's since all the other stores are insanely expensive.
I live in Newcastle upon Tyne in the Northeast of England. I like its Soviet sized monuments. I like its impossible accent. I like its pubs. The people always look agitated, though.
I'm originally from a small town outside of Boston. Talk about a disaster. Meth labs, prostitution rings, consistent and brazen break-ins. Everything is out of business. Entire strip malls empty save the occasional dollar store (with at least one letter not lit up) dotting the main drag.
Lots of baseball and softball fields, though. And a cricket pitch. That's befuddling.
I live about 45 minutes southwest of Toronto, ON. It USED to be a small town, but is now apparently 'the fastest growing town in Canada' which comes with my dislikes: way too many people with roads that are still small, when they do fix the roads they do EVERY SINGLE ONE AT ONCE, grocery stores never have enough lanes open, and EVERYWHERE YOU GO you se someone you want to avoid. Plus our movie theater sucks and took FOREVER to play silver linings playbook.
I can't even say i like it because my friends are here, because my closest lives the next town over and the rest are all away at school. I like that it's HOME I guess, and there's memories in that but.... not much else lately.
Though I don't live there currently, the town I am from (Bakersfield) has such a bad rap and causes such a terrible taste in people's mouths that I literally have to lie about where I'm from to avoid vicious slander and/or projectile vomit.
I have the same trouble. Technically, I am not from that town, I just went to school there, and grew up in a tiny town out in the county but the county has the same name as the only city in it, so I don't even tell people I am from that county. I say I am from just north of the city to the south, and that distracts them because of the tourist trap that it is. Everyone says people from where I grew up are all redneck and inbred and yeah, it's sickening to hear people who have never lived there yak about it.
I live in the fourth largest city in New Zealand, Hamilton. It's pretty much a joke to anyone who lives in the 3 larger cities, but I love it here because it's not full of Aucklanders, it's not horrendously windy like the capital Wellington, and we're earthquake-free and our murder rate is really low, unlike Christchurch. It's also the least crowded city in NZ, which is nice.
The only thing I really dislike about it is that Auckland is the only place that ever gets touring bands, so there's always travel involved with going to see international acts... and I guess it's a pretty boring place. Not a lot to do if you don't have an internet connection. :P
Well I am a fellow New Yorker. I live in the East Village and I would say that I love everything, well most things. I love that there is always something to do. I love that I can walk around the corner and find ten bars to go to. I love how anything goes. What I don't like is how ripped off we get. A friend of mine is renting a 2BR apartment in Albany and the whole apartment is 825 a month. It stings, but then again it is Albany. Still, though. Sometimes I also don't like how crowded it is. Sometimes I just want to go to a bar on a Saturday night and find a nice table with no hipsters dancing conversing on top of me.
