Hockey (sports) WHERE DO I WANT TO LIVE? VANCOUVER! WHY? I made my decision to live in Vancouver based on many different reasons. First I chose urban instead of rural. This was mainly because I have always lived in urban areas and have learned to love them but I was also because I never actually liked rural places. I didn't like the amount of work or the animals but most of all I hated the thought of living around bugs; those tiny creatures scare me, a lot! So my final decision was an urban place. THE END! Then I had to make the decision of which of the five (Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Yellowknife, and St. John's) urban places I would want to live in. For this I played the elimination game. The first two to come out were Yellowknife and St. John's. This is because they are both really isolated and have a low population; I have always lived and liked living in dense places. Also Yellowknife is up north which makes it a cold and snowy place and even though I like snow I do not enjoy the winter as much as the summer. Next I took out Calgary because it seem to me like another version of Toronto; Toronto being the better one. From the two finalists one would think that I my decision would be Toronto because of my familiarity with the city and because I live close to there. My decision to choose Vancouver instead of Toronto was a tough choice. In the end it had nothing to do with how close it was to home - even though I do love where I live. The mountains are the aspect of Vancouver the lured me into this result. I love mountains. I enjoy mountain climbing very much and am very good at it. The bugs in nature drive my away from things like hikes but mountain climbing is something completely different. It is not on a trail and we are surrounded by open, fresh air not big, long, mossy trees. The high mountains and peeks are the main factor but when I put some thoughts into it I understood that Vancouver fits all my requirements and wishes. It is urban with a dense population. It has both, winter and summer plus fall and spring. Vancouver was also named one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is also known to be a perfect vacation getaway and that is where I want to getaway to if I got to choose where I want to live.
