    most of my life i’ve lived in the suburbs, by a lake, full of peaceful mundanity that i was quietly okay with. the city, while not too far away, seemed like a distant dream to me for much of my youth, a weird haze of people with purpose and people without it. something about it was almost unattainable, as if to live there meant success... or something.
