As I’ve mentioned before, I grew up in a small town. I was always in the same room of the same house on the same street for all the first nineteen years of my life until I moved to the big city. So really, my hometown and my parents’ house still feels very much like home to me. I will always look at the place I grew up as home.
However, I have now lived in the city for almost 9 years and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else again. I’m used to the pace and the constant stimulation that you don’t get back in the country and probably will never leave again. Or at least, not for many years.
