exiting suburbia

After having spent eight years in a newly developed suburb 15 minutes outside a make-believe downtown Sacramento, California, and then experiencing the halt in development as a result of the housing crisis, I  have come to the realization that no matter how hard I tried, I cannot live outside a metropolitan city on a long-term basis. For a while there I was confusing escaping to the suburbs for a couple of days to clear my head with wanting to actually live there permanently. 

With that said, I will finally be handing over the keys to my property in suburbia this week and returning to my beloved city by the bay to once again become the city girl who I have always been.  It was an  eight year challenge and struggle to finally make this transition happen and believe me it couldn’t have come at a better time. 

I must say I am anxious and a bit nervous, but I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life to happen. Sometimes you have to experience what isn’t right for you in order to truly appreciate the best, which was there the whole time.  Stay tuned.

  1. Ahh! I have always lived in an urban area, closely located near universities where culture, interesting people, and good (non-chain) food were in abundance. 6 months ago I moved across the country, into a very beautiful and upscale suburb. I find myself making conversation with anyone that will talk to me: the hair-dresser, the grocer, the pharmacist, the vet people…what IS it about suburban life??? When I ask people where do you go for fun around here, they suggest the movies or the mall. Even the library is lacking and has more books about cooking or self-help than anything else. That was a lot of ranting…I guess what I’m trying to say is: I feel you. Good luck with your move.
