This is my son’s essay he wrote for a high school project. I really liked it and asked him if I could post it on my blog. Feel free to weigh in with your thoughts and opinions.
Urban VS Country, By Jaren
I believe it is better to live in the city than in the country because cities have so much more to offer.
In a small town everything is repetitive. You see the same people, go to the same places, do the same things, and eat the same things over and over almost like a never-ending cycle. Don’t get me wrong, I love small towns as much as the next guy and visiting is nice. It exposes you to something different, but I couldn’t live that way for an extended period of time. Small towns might be good for someone who likes familiarity, but the mundane tediousness gets old.
Cites give you the chance to meet a plethora of diverse people and differing cultures. Cities have generally good education systems and job options. The city has sights, sounds and new beginnings that a small town could never offer you. Cities live and breathe to move forward and innovate, while small towns constrict to a generic lifestyle.
If you make one small bad choice in a small town, everyone will know. You will be known by this. But the city could care less. There are so many men and women in the metropolitan that no matter how many relationships you sever, you will always have the opportunities to meet someone new.
Cities boast so much more extravagance than a dusty old small town and the opportunities are endless. Cites have sprawling areas that can contain hints of rural and country counterparts to coincide with the massive buildings, and highly populated parts.
The city has something for everyone!
