Now I know this is London centric - but hey guys, and yes that means you - what like isnt' these days - even Mickey Loosefit has forsaken the wilds of Accrington for Hainault - but really, once you move to London, can you really move out and come back or even just move out and never come back?
Of course its easy for jobbing transitories who only came here once they've got a graduate recruitment job and had their lives planned out before their parents had had characterless sex to create them, but what about silly daft randoms high on adventure and thrill (I don't mean Donny Tourette types either) who love London for its sheer unpredicatbilty and only have a loose plan of what they want to do and why they came here?
I've been here for 7 years next Monday and much as I hate the cold unfriendly aspects that such a place can throw at you, i still can't imagine living anywhere else - I also cold never leave London without actually having really achieved what I set out to do. Maybe that's why people of a certain ilk never leave?
If youre tired of London, youre tired fo life, so says the famous adage. Agree/don't care/Last FM Charts just in/disagree?
DISCLAIMER: its not for everyone and tis not the best place in the world before you all fucking start.
