Antics of a Burbanite
The city is a mecca for technology and pop culture. Complete with its own soundtrack of people talking, cars vrooming, music blaring and the occational dogs chorus of barking. It is here where people join together to root on the atheletes that have been chosen to represent their fair state. Where one can go to live a new life, unlike the one at home. To see a Prince marry a princess or a long haired idol rock the stage. Cluttered with people of varying shapes, colors and sizes, it is a place where one can be comunal and yet must be wary of who they choose to coverse with. Though this place offers a lot, what it sacrifices is not always the best. the city trades in lush greenery for solid grey sidewalks, a clear sparkling sky for the fog of industry and an open horizon for giants made of glass and steel.
This description came to me with comparison to the place I grew up in until I graduated from 8th grade. I brew up on the Northeast side of El Paso, TX. By my house there were plenty of houses, but on the other side of stanton, was miles and miles of endless desert. Though i lived in the burbs, i went to school in the city. I never realized it till now, how different things were. When i went to school, there were police sirens sounding, and horns honking in the distance. cars lined up at stoplights and the heat from their engines rose in a blur to the sky. In the burbs, it was peaceful. you could stand in the middle of the street and not see another car for almost 10 minutes.
I'm not quite sure why there are burbs and there are cities. The one thing that comes to mind is that some people would get really bored in the burbs, like i did since there is not a lot to do(sadly i never explored the dessert by my house, regret it to this day) so they go to the cities to find entertainment and joy. but sometimes the ruashing pace of the city can be hectic, so i guess one may need a place to just relax and just walk around without be too fearful about being robbed or meeting someone that they may deem different or dangerous.
