Heh. Yeah, it's definitely a question of perspective. I've known my entire life that I'd be completely miserable in a city like New York, but I thought Atlanta might be a workable compromise. There are some really great things about a big city, and, when we were first considering the move, I thought that would outweigh the negatives. Thus far, however, it really hasn't. I find myself constantly annoyed/aggravated by everything from the number of stupid, selfish people I encounter every day to the traffic that can make my commute take somewhere between 20 and 60 minutes. It's certainly possible that I'm just still getting used to it all, but I'm really starting to doubt that. I might just not be "big city" material. To deal with all of the crap and not go insane, you have to be the type who either doesn't give a shit about anyone else or who can just let things go without being annoyed. I'm not really either of those people.

It seems that you guys are saying that there is more to it than that??
Now you see why I think everyone here's an asshole.

Also, Cartoon Network.
