The New Neighbourhood

Moving to a city is what I have wanted since long. Not because I didn’t like my old place. It’s great! But it’s a place more suitable for say.. retired people. Or maybe even dead people. The quiet and calm has a soothing effect but too much exposure to it could make any sane person feel as if they are going to lose it. It has the same eerie feeling that of entering a graveyard. Or maybe it’s the same routine every single day that does it. No matter where you are, if you follow the same time tabled life, it takes a toll on you some day. You might not realize it and only when you step out of it would you come to know you are in a much better space now.

So when I got this opportunity to move to a city, I welcomed it with wide open arms, gave the opportunity a tight squeeze till it couldn’t breathe any further. I was that happy! My friends asked me why I would want to move and that they would die to shift to a place like mine with the greenery and peace all around (something hard to find in the city). But I guess the grass is always greener on the other side? City people crave for a quieter life whereas people like me enjoy the hustle and bustle that comes with living in a city. For now, at least. Everything has a lifespan and who knows.. I might get bored of all this eventually and might want to venture out again to something new. Like they say, change is the only constant in anyone’s life.
