Separation Is Natural

Ah, Worcester. How I will… not miss you.

This city is lacking in so many areas. Not walker-friendly, and the bus fares keep going up with hardly a warning. I will grant that the RMV employees seem quite good-natured, which is more than I expected. But that hardly makes up for the general hideousness of downtown. I leave at an opportune time in that sense – due to construction, it’s uglier than ever down there.

I realized when I got confused walking from the RMV to the bus stop (one block away) that there is still much of Worcester that I do not know even after thirteen years of residency, but I am perfectly happy leaving it undiscovered. It is not worth the effort, when I will soon have a whole new awesome city to explore. The few bright spots, square inches of beauty that Worcester might hold, can’t possibly compare to where I’m going.

There will be things I miss, I’m sure – after a long time. Most of my attachments here are people. The strongest of those attachments are to my parents (and pets). You know, the few people in my life I see every day and/or as often as I can. As Odwalla or possible Naked juice says, Separation is natural. Now is the time in my life to cut the cord. Fly the coop. Do the monster mash.

You know.
