City Scape

I moved to the centre of Leeds at the end of October and the change of scenery has made me feel a hell of a lot lighter. I'm more motivated and determined in what I want to achieve in life, I'm clear-headed and I'm content and inspired. It's funny isn't it how a new environment can change everything? I moved to a small town when I was 13 and at 24, moved to an even smaller town. I felt squashed, cut off, uninspired, trapped and bored, I knew the only way to get me out of that head funk was to move to a city. We toyed with 3 places. Leeds, where I'm from, Manchester, the city I love most in the UK or London, where I thought I'd have more ''opportunity''.

We decided the move to Leeds would be the wisest. I'm closer to work, we can get more for our money and well, it's home. I thought if I wanted to ever make something of myself it would have to be London or nothing, it was my dream to one day be living there, however,  I've learnt now its really not the case.  If you have an internet connection and a passion that's all you really need. I realised I was pushing for something that not both of us wanted. London is bloody fab, I love planning trips and look forward to them but I just don't know if I could ever make it home. Plus, Yorkshire will always and forever be bae. I quickly came to the conclusion it's not the city location that gets you somewhere, rather the person that puts in the groundwork.

I know moving to the city was the right step for me. The buzz of a city seems to rub off on me as cliche as it sounds it makes me feel alive whereas the sleepy village, as beautiful as it was, just made me feel well, sleepy. I'm looking forward to my first summer her, warm nights, late evenings spent having drinks with James in a new fave bar. Eating out, urban exploring. Going to more shows, SLAM DUNK. Seeing more of my family and having the constant sense of this is where I should be.
