Today, it suddenly hit me: I don’t think I’ve written about Seattle yet. About a year into this blog about my favorite subject, namely, getting happy, and I haven’t said anything about how happy I am to live in the best city in the entire world.
(I mean, okay, I haven’t been to Europe yet, but does anywhere in Europe have as much coffee and rain and as many nerds? I doubt it.)
Well, the silence ends today.
No, I’m not going to go on and on about how much I love “all the conveniences” of being in a big city and “there’s always so much to do.”
I’m just going to say: I love it because I love it, and so, this is where I am.
And where you love is where you should be, too.
I do recommend Seattle, though.
Seattle is the new Chicago for coolness, after all.
Of course, if you’re reading this and you’re familiar with this city, I know what you’re thinking: What about all the traffic?
My answer: Well, of course there’s a lot of traffic. There are a lot of people who like being here.
Are you in the city you love? Does being there make you happy? Write and let me know!
