While at my current job, I've heard many people tell me how far it was from my parents' house and how long it took to get anywhere. I never really thought about it until today.
I haven't been out to the island in a few weeks. I've been enjoying city life. Most of all, I've been enjoying not having to take the car everywhere. I love the freedom that comes with being in walking distance of almost everything you could possibly want.
I basically drove the length of the island today to pick up a friend, get lunch, and then go shopping at the outlets. For the first time, I am tired of driving!!! Driving used to be the way I relaxed, I guess I'm slowly but surely turning into a city girl.
I enjoy being with 9 million strangers and watching the various antics of city dwellers. I enjoy watching my neighbor across the street bring his lawn chair out to the sidewalk to sit like he were in his backyard. I like that I can go outside and see something different everyday.
