Pros and Cons About Living in the City

Now that I've been here for almost 2 weeks I think I now have a better idea of what I've gotten myself into.


In Samoa I drove a Ford Explorer, now I walk and ride the Metro Rail.

In Samoa I didn't pay taxes, now I do.

In Samoa it took me 5 mins to get to work, now it's an hours commute.

I used to play golf every weekend, 'nuff said.

I used to have my own office, now I'm in a cubicle.

I used to wear flipflops to work, now I have to wear socks and shoes ARGHHHH!


Here, I live near a zoo, not live in one.

Here, I can dial up any number of pizza places and they deliver.

I get paid in US Dollars not Samoan Tala *Praise the Lord*

Now I have a flash flip phone, medical insurance, life insurance and a credit card.

With the exception of the US Dollars *Praise Jesus*, I could pretty much live without everything else (well maybe not the flipflops). Living in the city has it's ups and downs and I'm sure its gonna be an adventure for Rach, Maddy and I.
