(Sorry.......I wrote this post last week sometime and never got around to publishing it. Nevertheless, enjoy.)
|On our way to Jersey and N.Y.C in the background|
(And yes I did just put a period after "Well") Low and behold, it's a t'shirt full of FREAKING SNAKES!! I NEARLY DIED!! OH YES. SNAKES!!! (Well, honestly I don't know if it was more than one snake or not, but he was carrying it like it was either (a.) A Big Snake or (b.) Tons of snakes. I guess it really doesn't matter. He had a SNAKE on the subway. Who does that?!)
After this experience I realized New York and I could never work out. Vacation? Yes. Living? No. So, after all of this I came up with a my top 10 reason why, I could never live in NYC.....
Reason #1- Very dirty. Trash and sanitation is ridiculous....
Reason #2- Waaaayyy too many homeless people. What the hell is their government doing or not doing? Get these folks in a shelter.
Reason # 3- I couldn't figure out if I was in the hood or not. Everything looked a little ghetto-ish to me. Sorry New Yorkers!!
Reason #4- The roads are absolutely horrible
Reason # 5- Everyone looks angry. Okay, maybe not everyone, but the majority. Can you blame them though?
Reason #6- Cost of living is waaayyy too high.
Reason # 7- I felt unsafe and safety is on the top of my priority list.
Reason #8- From what I've heard, rats are a big problem and rats and I could never cohabitate. Sorry!!
Reason #9- Too much noise. When I go home, I want to go home to peace and quiet. Not boom boom booming coming from a party down the street.
Reason #10- Would never feel like home.
Okay. So yes, I may have been a little over the top, just an incy wincy bit with my list. However, this is strictly my opinion, I know that New York is for some people. JUST NOT FOR ME!! For instance, my best friend loves N.Y.C. Now, like I said before, I can visit N.Y.C, but I can't live in N.Y.C. I will definitely visit my BF when she moves out there, but that will be all I'll be doing.
I think it takes a certain type of character to live there. Maybe, it's not even a certain character, but you have to have some type of purpose to want to live there. I feel like people who aspire to move to New York, it's because they have a personal mission or a goal they have to achieve. Because it's definitely not a place you can look at and say, "This is home". However, I could be wrong, BUT I'm entitled to my opinion, right?
