Am I mad...
To be moving from this:
I've had enough of being a country girl & gave the city a try a few years ago while I completed a college course & have missed it ever since. It's a very strange thing because I never thought I'd love being in a place like London, even though my mother hates the idea of me moving because she seems to think I will get raped, shot, murdered, mugged, stabbed & robbed all at the same time, either that or somehow get the pointy toe of my high heel to trip me head first onto the Bakerloo line & ruin some poor banker's rush hour trip to work.... (she knows how clumsy I can be!)
The strange thing is though, I feel safer in London than I do here crimewise, it's not that there is alot of crime but it tends to be quite bad when it does, it could of course be a false sense of security, more people - safer you feel, or it could be that you barely ever see a copper about around here whereas in London there seems to be one at every corner, then again, they could be figments of my over excited imagination or holograms ;o)
It's just too quiet where I am, I've had a taste of city life & want more. More excitement, more life, more experiences & more oppurtunities. The only thing that could show me up is my accent, elocution lessons here I come!
