La Ciudad

There’s something about the city that just inspires me.

Maybe its the skyscrapers, bright lights or just the hustle and bustle of it all.

I’ve always been a city girl.

I grew up in northern New Jersey, just a 30 minute train ride from New York City. Every time I would visit NYC, I would always picture myself living in a swanky apartment in Manhattan just like Carrie Bradshaw lol.

I currently live in Georgia. Not in Atlanta, about 30 minutes away.

To me, a major city like NYC ATL or LA represents a dream, or a destination and I always find myself to be just outside the city. Close enough to regularly visit, but too far away to actually live it.

I tend to look at things more abstract than the next person. I like to look past the literal to see if there’s a hidden meaning.

I wonder if there’s a deeper meaning to me always living outside the city but never actually in it.

I came up with two interpretations.

The first is that because I view the city as a dream, it means my dreams are always so close that I can taste it, but there always seems to be something in the way.

The second is that it represents Destination Addiction simply because I attach my happiness to something physical (like a city) and I will never be able to attain it. Just always looking at it from afar because what I’m truly in search of has nothing to do with physical things…
