Lately another thing that's been on my mind is, what happened, when did people start aspiring to live in cities? What happened to the dream of owning a big house in the suburbs with 1-2 cars? When did people settle for taking the bus around, settle to live in smaller spaces surrounded by lots more people? I understand the city is where the most jobs are in many cases, however Suburbs tend to have commuter rail and if they don't, they have a decent network of freeways to get you downtown. This fascination with taking bikes and little scooters everywhere, that's what people do in third world countries because they cant afford cars. Shouldn't we strive for better? I remember years ago if you owned a Hummer H2 or the Escalade ESV (the chevy suburban sized one not the chevy tahoe sized one), it was a symbol that you made it, that you were someone. Young people were excited to get their permit and take their road test, it is a symbol of freedom, that you didn't need mom and dad to drive you to the mall or your friends house, you could go yourself. What changed? Kids were happy to get a car even if it was a handmedown from a relative, they made it their own, they put in a fancy car stereo or a big exhaust and drove around where they needed to go. What changed? I understand theres been a recession but those are temporary. Just because the present may be tough, doesn't mean the future will be also. Is this really the future people look forward to, everyone in dense cities, suburbs very tightly packed in, if you have money, you're in a house but its attached on both sides to another house, and don't even think of a backyard or a driveway, and a garage is definitely out of the question. Some power mad mayor telling you what to eat, and what to drink, what materials you cant and cannot use, how much water and electricity you can use. When did I become so out of touch? When did I become this relic of the past?
if this is too long for you to read, don't be a lazy ass, read it or get out of here.

I totally agree. and I know the america suburbs with the little house, the garden and scenes like Stepford Wives, or Wifes of Orange County or even Edward scissor hands.
Prior to WWII, people lived in the city, not the suburbs Then again, back then the US was mainly agriculture. Anyway, congrats on graduating, woow! Happy hap time! :3
Hope it goes good for you and so sweat i'm sure it'll get better
