The city

So I want to make this journal a little different. I want to talk about a certain thing or place that I love. That place is the city

The city is such a beautiful place. You seriously can’t get enough of the city. I basically live in the country. Lots of land and area around us so there are not a lot of building. We had to drive to downtown charlotte the other day and it was beautiful. I love seeing all the people and cool architect. I seriously would love to live in the city over the country any day. Maybe I say that because I’ve seen all this land my entire life with few buildings or maybe I’m just meant of the city. I’m very artsy so I love all the music and people of the city. I love the fact that you can walk wherever you want. I despise driving so being able to walk everywhere is a blessing. I love coffee so just knowing that I could walk to a variety of coffee shops whenever I please is awesome and much appreciated.

There are a few downsides to the city that I need to point out. All the homeless people are probably the biggest thing I noticed. I genuinely feel bad for them.  I wish I could give them all hotel rooms to stay in while they get things straightened out. I care for so many people and I honestly would give my life for any human being on this planet. I don’t even have to know you and I will already take a bullet for you. I don’t know why I’m like that but I seriously care for everybody. I hate seeing people struggle and I love seeing people smile. Happiness is the key factor to fighting sadness. So the homeless is a downside. Another downside is the trash. There is not a lot of trash in downtown but there are in less populated parts of the city and that’s a problem. Nobody likes to see trash laying all over the place and that honestly not where it belongs. One simple piece of trash can lead to hundreds more trash. You may not think you caused that much damage but you seriously did.

Well, that’s why I love the city. I can go on and on but I doubt yall want to read all of that so I’m just going to stop. Let’s talk about my day. My day was decent in all honesty. It was one of those days that you don’t really remember what you did just five minutes ago. I seriously couldn’t tell you one thing that I learned today. It was that kind of day. I’m not going to blame anybody but myself for today. Maybe it was the lack of sleep but again, that is my fault.  

Romans 6:23-   For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Well, that is about it for today. I will keep yall updated as I continue with my journey through life.

  1. It’s awesome that you love cities, too. Like you, I’m living in the countryside, and although the quiet is nice, the background noises of the city–cars and people and shops–is so relaxing to hear. Like you said, living in the city is convenient, because you can just walk/take the bus everywhere you want to go. And of course, cities are so beautiful, especially at night, when there are lights and you can look out of the window and get that calming feeling just staring at cars go by. And I don’t think reading about your love of cities is boring–it’s actually quite interesting, and weirdly comforting to know that someone likes cities too.

  2. Interesting take. I love your attitude and warmth. Totally shines within this entry.

    I’ve lived in both cities and the country side. I prefer the country. I loves trees, lots of them. I love rolling hills. I love the fact that I can be as loud as I want. Cities are noisy. I use to always hear my neighbors business or smell what they burned for dinner. The trash you spoke of really upsets me. I hate crowds of people talking into their phones. I guess I’ve never come to appreciate the finer points of city life.

  3. My eyesight won’t allow me to read a long blog. But I love the scripture quote. Thank you for that!
