Am I happy where I live now? I am. It’s because my apartment is big and new. It’s very comfortable. I can do whatever I want. The neighbourhood is smart, the people around are nice and it actually is very convenient because there are many stores, cinemas and restaurants around. Buses always run on time. I really like it.
No, I’m not happy where I live at all. I’m terrified to go home at night because of the hooligans and the drug dealers. I am afraid of burglars when I am at home. My neighbour’s car was stolen from his garage at night and never found. We also have a big rat problem – there are thousands of them in the streets even at daytime. So, I can say there’s nothing positive about my home town.
There’s only one bad thing about my home town. I live on a small island. So there’s not much to do here. There’s not much entertainment. There are no restaurants or movie theatres, so it’s very quiet. Some people would say very boring, but I think you have to find other things to do like learning to play musical instruments or playing chess. It’s also a good idea to take up writing stories. Living on an island makes a difference.
Yeah, I’m really happy. I really like the fact that my family are close by and that I have really good friends close by. I know my home town is really small and quiet. It’s a very close-knit community and I like that. It’s not always ideal because there’s not so much to do, but there are a lot of good places to go to. Bright lights of a big city are within an hour’s drive. So really I’m quite fortunate. I do not fancy living in a big city.
Am I happy where I live now? I would have to say “no”. I’m not happy. I live next to a really busy street that has traffic twenty-four hours a day and a hospital just down the block, so I hear sirens every day and it’s one of the busiest and biggest cities in the world. So I would have to say “no”. It’s too busy and too loud and filled with pollution.
