Leaving London

I live in London and I have lived there all my life. However, I have never loved where I live. In fact, I hate London so much that I want to get out of the place as soon as possible. The decision that I want to leave London took a lot of thinking, as leaving London would mean leaving my school, all my friends and everyone and everything I know.

There are a few reasons I am leaving London. First of all, there are the reasons I hate it. I hate London because it is overpopulated. There are simply just too many people. I also hate London because strangers just don’t work with each other. Everyone on a public bus or on the Tube is pissed off for no obvious reason. Everyone hates each other, and teenagers are particularly treated badly. In fact, because there is so much of that, I could write forever about how people in London have been a bastard to me. However, I’m quite sure nobody wants to read the moaning of some teenager in London, and this blog post is already bad enough.

Anyway, to give you an idea of how crowded London is, please take a break from reading and watch this video, which I also embedded into my first blog post. Just be aware that the first time I watched it, I was genuinely scared and do not have any future plans of travelling to Japan.

The final reason that I am leaving London for my benefit is because of education. A few days ago, I finished going to an International school. This school uses the IB and while it is a great educational system, it does not suit me. The problem with the IB is that I would have to learn a load of stuff that would not help me in the future. I would have to learn either History or Geography, and I would also have to learn a foreign language. I tried learning a language at this school before and I failed. The idea of knowing Spanish for next time I go to Spain sounds nice, but it just isn’t going to happen.

I don’t know if you enjoyed reading this post, but I enjoyed writing it and I wanted to get it out there. Sorry if you were offended by the slightly strong language, but this is the Internet and my website is one of the cleaner websites out there.

    This is an interesting post, although I do not agree with all of it, London can be a lot of fun too.
