Writing Prompt: “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,” goes the famous song about New York City. Is there a place — a city, a school, a company — about which you think (or thought) the same? Tell us why, and if you ever tried to prove that claim.
No, I have never tried to prove that claim, but being a girl who’s lived in a large city I’ve always felt like it you live in one large city you’ve pretty much lived in them all. The only thing that is really different is the people and the landmarks. I will say that moving to Las Vegas was a huge challenge for me, even though both were big cities, Milwaukee is a city that closes at night and reopens, I was always taught there is nothing good outside at 2am, where naturally Las Vegas is the opposite the city is alive 24 hours a day, and it never sleeps there are always people on the strip and something to do at all times of night…. maybe that’s why I lived far away from the strip in a neighborhood that at 10 was pretty quiet and low key.
I did say that if I can drive in Las Vegas I can drive in any city in the world (people are nuts there… and even worst in Chicago).. but at the end of the day I think I will be able to say that after living a year in Seoul (that’s the dream) if I can live and thrive there and speak the language then I can truly say, “I can make it anywhere!”
Until Next Time….
