Leaving The City
I think that if I ever move out of the city I am going to get a house with a big yard. Having lived downtown for so long it’s almost as if I don’t even know what a yard is like anymore. When I come home I go up to my unit and open the door and I have a nice apartment but if I want to do anything I have to go somewhere public. We have an open field nearby if I want to walk outside, but it is a public thing, it’s not like it’s my own little area. It’s quite different to actually have an outside area that you can call your own. I’d like to have a deck, too, so I can get some benches or whatever up there and invite people over and have a place to sit. As of now when I invite people over we just chill in my living room because there’s nowhere else to go.
When I get a yard, I’m also going to have a garden. I want to grow some herbs and many vegetables just to see if I can. There will be a few other things that I do, too, assuming I get a big enough area. I also like to grill, so there would definitely be a grill there. And so people could lay back and relax I would get some metal garden furniture. Basically, I want to be able to have my little get togethers outside.
But seeing as how I live downtown and work downtown, I don’t think I’ll be moving to a house with a yard anytime around the present. Unless, of course, my boss decided that I could work from home and would let me do it that way. I certainly wouldn’t want to make the trip every day from the burbs into the city. No way, and most of my friends live here, too, so I’d have to find a way to get them out to where I live which they wouldn’t want to do. City people like living in the city, and there’s a much different feel out in the suburbs. While you get stuff like a yard, and grass, and a garage, there is less activity and that sort of thing and you’ve got other issues as well. The city is my preferred place to live, but there’s lots of things I would like to do if I had a house, too. But there are a lot of things I love about the city and I have most of my friends here, too, so my garden will heap up in my idea list until then.
