Hello Seattle by Owl City
(In the style of last week's Glee episode in which all the songs had "Hello" in the title (: Also, in the spirit of this blog, all about my home)
Transit Center in downtown Bellevue and new building
I love my hometown, I love almost everything about it. The summers here are TO DIE FOR. We may have 10 months of living in the most depressing, dampest pit of hell, but the two months or so we get of blissful summer is probably the closest thing you will find to heaven. It is growing quickly though, and for some reason I get a little protective over it. Like, "hello, I was here first get of my property" kind of thing. I'm scared that it will be taken over. By who? I don't know. My question is where all these new people think they are going to live. Yes, there is always new construction going on. There used to be cranes galore on the downtown skyline (there might still be, I can't remember. If there are, I have gotten used to seeing them there, and that is sad news), so there are always new places to live. But seriously, those are like penthouses and town houses that are like $2,000 a month or $2 million. Who can afford that?! Apparently we can.
I live in the "suburbs" of Bellevue. The suburbs of the suburbs of Seattle. I love it here. I love my school, I love my friends (did I mention Bellevue is a very diverse city? Over the years my best friends have been Korean, Chinese, White, Black, Filipino, Honduran, Israeli, and Indian. My mom always tells me that I take for granted the diversity of our city. I probably do, but I don't know anything else other than multicultural communities). I love living here. And as much as I want to leave home for college, I know I will miss this place more than I could ever imagine. It will be painful.
Anyway, enough bragging. I just took some pictures of the city and wanted to share them like a proud mother. I will put some up of Seattle eventually. Because, really, even though I don't technically live there, it's more or less my home city too. It's definitely a huge part of me.
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What's your city like? I want to hear all about it!
Love from the suburbs,
