The city has a romantic quality to me. Probably because I've never actually lived there. But I like this feeling and I'll hold onto it as long as it lasts. I don't want to live in the city because I don't like living in small towns. I like how every town has its' own special quirks and intricacies and histories. What the city represents for me, as it does for most people, is opportunity. I tell myself it will be easier to do some things there, but ultimately it is my responsibility to do the things I want to do. Can't I do those things from here? Some, yes. To an extent, yes. I have to use up all the potential in the place I'm at now, so I understand what opportunity is and to understand my own determination. For instance, if I really want something, what is stopping me from doing it right now? Myself? That's such a cheesy, predictable predicament I can't even keep from being mad at myself. The opportunity is here and now. It's not in an emblem that I created. The city is a place. This is place. How many walls will I build around myself to prevent myself from realizing opportunity and using it?
