Living on an Island
When it comes to living on an island, lately, my feelings are on the opposite ends of the spectrum.
I miss the convenience of living in a city. A city, full of restaurants, coffee shops, stores, supermarkets, bookstores, movie theaters, etc.
Finding things easily whenever you want is something that I took for granted when I was living in a city.
Living on a small island, on the other hand, is much more different than living in a city. You do not have access to things that you are used to having whenever you want. Simple things like mushrooms, brown sugar, printed newspaper, and the option to choose from the newest movies, are not easily available. If you need mushrooms or brown sugar you may have to take a boat and travel 30 minutes to the bigger island. If you want to see a new movie you do not have a choice but to get it from the guy, who is selling bootleg movies at the corner of the street. And, if only, he has that movie, on hand.
