I'd forgotten how fun it is to be a young woman living in the city. There's cocktails and friends and diversity and dates and museums and politics and outdoor movies and jazz in the sculpture garden for free.
Small town USA does not do it for me.
The only small town I've lived in and really loved is Basse Santa Su, but hey, it's a market town, so people are always coming and going -- Banjul always felt small after the wonders of Basse.
Here in DC, there's loud music and dinner parties and new friends and laughter and camaraderie and neon lights and grassy knolls and I am so much happier than in Vermont.
