Tuesday Twosome: It’s all about location…

  1. Name two things you love about the city/town you live in: I love that it’s a large city with a neighborhood feel, residential and mid-size-town like, but with all the amenities of the major metropolitan area that we are. I also love… well, I just really like my neighborhood. I’ve been here over 3 years now (2 different apartments), and I really feel quite comfortable here.
  2. Name two things you dislike about the city/town you live in: In my neighborhood particularly I feel a lack of good places to eat. Also, downtown has nothing going on outside of the 9-5 M-F routine.
  3. Name two cities/towns you would live in if you couldn’t live where you are now: I looooove San Francisco, but could never afford to live there. Also, the western part of Michigan, on the lake, is really nice.
  4. Are you a “true local” (born and raised) or a transplant of the city/town you live in? I am a transplant, though in 16 days I will have been here 5 years, and it really feels like home (though I will stay say I’m going “back home” when traveling to Illinois).
  5. Do you like to leave your city/town when you have a long weekend or do you like to stay home? I spend almost all of my weekends at Prince Charming’s house in the suburbs, including long weekends. I don’t think it really counts as leaving, since it’s only 13 miles away and I’d be there if it was a long weekend or not.
