After living in downtown Baltimore for 5 years (my third full summer here), I really enjoy the city life.  I like the convenience and the fact I am not far from a coffee shop.

Over the course of these 5 years, the whole experience has turned me off to the suburbs.  You would think that I have a similar opinion of the country, but this is not the case.  I like both ends of the spectrum.  The city is a (albeit sometimes poorly) planned, condensed space, but something about the vastness of the country really gets me – the miles upon miles of empty space.   As long as I could have my precious internet and be a drivable distance to a decent grocery store, I think I could do alright.

Sometimes I look out my window, notice all the buildings and how far they settle into the distance.  I feel small.  I get the same feeling with the country.  I guess it’s always nice to be reminded that there are things much bigger than yourself every once and a while.
