Don't get intimidated by the crowd. By earplugs, silly but the noise at night can be somewhat disturbing your nights rest. Buy a big post of the country, and hang it on your wall. Find the best places to do shopping, have a relaxed time and can go for fun. That requires a bit of exploring. which you also should do. When coming in the city, imagine yourself a tourist, wanting to know the best places, and history of the city. When you done with that, embrace the city, as just a very crowded pasture.<br />
You'll manage. You've been in worse situations, and you managed those. Hugs
What he said :)
I suggest combining what Wigglebottom said and this post and you're pretty much set with your own manual. :-)
Do not go out at night until you are sure of where you are and what the neighborhood is like. If you have to go out at night then take a friend or family member if at all possible. The one thing about the city life is if you look like you do not live there then you will be a target. <br />
It's hard to explain but that is the way it is. Also depends on what city as well. <br />
D.C. Has the highest murder rate in the nation.
Which city is it?
I went from the city to the country and back to the city after a few years my advice by some ear plugs, the noise level is a shocker.
It might take a few weeks to get used to the noise but you will be ok :)
It's like going swimming, you just have to jump in. I don't think there's much a person can do to make the adjustment any easier but once you're in for a while and get used to the water it's not so bad. I think the hardest part is dealing with rude people and nobody is going to bring you a freshly baked apple pie when you move into the neighborhood, unless they own a bakery close by and want you to be a customer.
why would anyone actually choose to live in the city,i'd love to live in the country..are you sure about this move?
jobs can be a pain,i think they can play too large a part in our lives
