  3. Having multiple huge grocery stores makes life so much easier.
  4. ESPECIALLY Target.
  5. Everyone automatically assumes you grew up on a farm.
  6. It makes you uncomfortable not knowing literally everybody’s name and life story.
  7. You fall in love thirty-six times as you walk down the street because you aren’t used to seeing that many attractive guys in a row.

  15. There is a plentiful amount of bars, not just one or two.
  16. And bar specials exist.

  20. If you have a one-night stand, you don’t have to worry about ever seeing them again.
  21. The bus couldn’t be more complicated.
  22. It’s harder to get out of tickets because you no longer know all of the cops on a personal level.
