There's something about cities that I don't like. I'm a country girl, I'm used to having to drive for more than ten minutes just to go to school; I'm used to trees everywhere...I'm used to space.

Today I rode a city bus by myself for the first time in my eighteen years. I'm now in college, so I had to go to the capital, because living in the country may have its perks, but it also has its disadvantages - like having to drive +100km just so I can have a degree.

Well, I felt independent. But I didn't quite like it. What am I supposed to do while I wait for my stop? Look at other people and have them think I'm a weirdo? No, thank you.

The city means no one knows each other, so you have thousands of people in the same place with no connection whatsoever. Looking at it from a positive prospective, it's kind of cool to think about it, but it's not for me.

Being on the bus by myself meant I kept freaking out about not leaving on the right stop - because not only was I by myself for the first time, I don't know the city all that well - and kept on checking on this app I downloaded how many stops there were before mine. It was a really nervewrecking experience, to be truthfull, and the fact that it will be my daily routine for the next 3 to 5 years makes me really anxious.

I'm not a city girl. The city actually gives me migraine, but I have to put up with it - if I want to have a degree, that is.
