    I really am not a fan of new neighborhoods... they look so bald and uniform (and they should start painting houses a color that's NOT beige and giving them more windows... LOTS more windows!!!)... they kind of lack any form of reminder that they are part of the rest of the earth

    my neighborhood is from the late 50s and the trees have been growing every since... in the summer the streets are mostly shady and the whole area looks green... it's as close to having some of the benefits of nature while still being close to everything as I can get!

    There are some very wooded neighborhoods in Minneapolis/St Paul. My neighboorhood has some big, old trees (dating back to the 1900s), but I wouldn't call it 'wooded.' And some suburban neighborhoods are quite pretty, I agree! I just don't like the newer ones with cookie-cutter houses, or the "lifestyle" neighborhoods that try to look like historic small-town main streets, but that are completely man-made.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I lived downtown once. Most I've ever paid for an apartment, by far...

It's really all just wasting time and waiting for the inevitable, and letting perceived needs dictate & limit your own ability to authentically live.

    Fuck that life.
    Whats the alternative ?
