    HATE

    I hate the suburbs.  I only lived in the suburbs for a couple weeks, and hopefully I never will again.  I lived in the country most of my life and I am so glad I grew up in that environment.  I've never lived in the city, but think I might like to.  Urban...

    Give Me Urban Grit Or Open Country

    OK, I've never lived in a suburb. I've lived in tiny towns and in major cities. I've lived in a six-flat with a junkie sleeping on a bare mattress in the basement, and I lived where it was so peaceful you noticed when the Carolina wrens changed their tunes. Suburbs seem by...

    If you're not fine, don't say you are. Especially if you expect people to help you. People will listen to what you say if you say you're fine. No one can read your mind. Speak up.
