so, i've been going back and forth back and forth on where to live. When kyle and i first moved to minneapolis, i thought i hated it...but really, that was just because it was somewhere new and different and scary. buuut now i see all the wonders of minneapolis; it's SAFE, it's CLEAN.....and that's all i really care about. Mostly, safety though, which is why i'm afraid to move back to Kansas City. Our plans were to move to kc june first, and i'd go to the kc art institute, which is a really wonderful school. It's cheaper, it's familiar, my friends and family live there, but lately i've just been really worried about being safe. In minneapolis you can go outside in the dark by yourself (in lots of places), you can ride the public transportation alone, and there are lots of 'normal' people out to protect you when someone freaky approaches. .buuut, the apartments are a lot more expensive, and so is MCAD.
In kc, i can get my BFA in photography AND fibers, and save a lot of money.
but if i'm going to be constantly afraid of my safety (my mom was nearly murdered there, and people are shot or stabbed everyday) theennn I don't know if it's worth it. I grew up in KC, so I know it's not all bad. It's just that i've lived somewhere so safe for a year, it's going to be hard to adjust again.
uuggghhhh growing up and deciding things is so hard.
