Settling into city life

I am settling into city life.  I am really enjoying it.  

I love walking three blocks to one of two grocery stores.  

I love being able to take a cab out…and back home at the end of the night.  (Not so fond of cab drivers for the most part.  I’ve definitely been ripped off twice…both times on Saturday night) 

I love coming home to a quiet apartment.  

I was talking to a friend the other day, telling her about living alone.  She thought that I was crazy because I love the solitude of my life.  She likes noise, activity, being surrounded by people.  She likes hustle and bustle.  I am the opposite.  Don’t get me wrong.  I like to be around people.  I like the opportuity to be around the hustle and bustle of the city.  However, what I love more is having a sanctuary from everything…a place to let my hair down and just be.

So, yeah, I’m settling into my life very well.  I think I am ready to remove myself from reclusive living and dive into some activities.  There are a lot of things that need to be changed in the world, a lot of people to meet, a lot of causes that need to be embraced.  I do believe it’s time.
