I know it's silly, but whenever I would go to a big city, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Paris, I would always dream of how my life would be if I lived in a big city. I would look at the skyline and dream of my important life and busy schedule. How it would be SO great to take public transportation, I would go EVERYWHERE on the subway... I wouldn't even need a car.
I use the metro and busses to get around; I have no car.
I also used to wonder what it would be like to live in the cold weather.
Today it was -1 degrees celsius. For those of you who do not know celsius, 0 degrees is FREEZING. I was so cold. All day long, even though i was wearing 3 layers, when I would leave my classroom or the teachers' office, the cold from the hallways would slap me in the face and the chest and especially, my legs, which only had a pair of jeans.
I get it now. I have lived in the cold. I have lived in the big city. Now I know.
I want to go home.
