- Buddha hates you all
- April 30th, 2009
Alright, here's the thing. Here in this adopted city of mine, there lies scumbags, white trash, and just an overall dumpiness. Why? I mean, I came from Las Vegas, a city where once waiting for a bus I saw a completely drunk homeless guy sitting next to a power box shadowboxing. A city, where a guy tried for three hours to try to sell me a porn mag on a public bus.
What is it about this city that just brings this kind of dumpy aura, and just makes it that much more apprent than in the city of sin? Can someone explain this? I certainly don't know, and it seems that it just seems to be getting worse, and worse. I've been noticing it more lately, but why? Everyone knows Ogdensburg, can someone explain this to me?
Just a few miles down the road you have a small town, which I'm sure does have scumbags and the likes of the same people, but I've lived there as well, and you just don't seem to notice it. Instead you have a town of mostly middle aged or elderly people who's kids couldn't wait to get out of there for college. I love when people when ask me where I came from and then can't believe the answer I get. Vegas, was just another city, you know? It had it's problems just like a Canton, or an Ogdensburg would, that's one reason why I wanted to come here in the first place. A big city gets tiring, espically one as fake as Las Vegas... anyway, where was I? Ah yes, Canton. Then another ten miles down the road you have Potsdam, populated by college kids during the semesters. It seems a little more upbeat and buzzy, the kind of small town I really wouldn't mind living in. It seems to have the downtown life that you could like and hang out in, unlike the city of sin.
Speaking of the City of Sin, what's the hooker situation here? I mean, it's the worlds oldest profession, but... does upstate NY not have any working girls? If it does it certainly doesn't seem to be thriving like the streetwalkers did back home. I don't know.... and I can't wait to go back to school.
Buddha - OUT.
P.S. - Your comments, much appreciated. ciao.
