Missin' the Loop
Just came back from having coffee at Epoch. I can see my old house from their patio. I moved about 3 months ago (although it feels like longer right now) after living on North Loop for a little over 4 years. My new neighbourhood isn't that far away but it's a world of difference.
So quiet & secluded over here. My neighbours are almost never outside & when they are they look at me like I'm nuts if I wave or say hello. I don't really have a front porch to sit on over here like I used to... I have a carport. But it really doesn't matter anyway because there's nothing to do out there anyway. No people watching, no chatting with neighbours passing by, none of that.
I wanted more space & a yard & to be rid of my shitty landlords once & for all. Well, I got all of the above. Went from a one bedroom duplex to a three bedroom house, but in the process I feel as though I've completely lost my "culture" & replaced it with something dull & boring.
Sometimes I feel as though I'm slowly blending right into it all... becoming dull & boring myself...... SIGH....
