I’ve been living in the suburbs my entire life, in a small(ish) town just outside of Montreal. In Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, to be exact, and as you can see by its thrilling wiki page, it’s not the most exciting place in the world.
But I love it. When I tell people that I moved out of my parents house only to get my very own place just a few kilometers away, I get a funny look.
And then comes the question… Why didn’t you move downtown?!
My answer always seems to leave fellow millennials slack jawed and wide eyed, their brains trying to imagine someone my age not craving the convenience, the nightlife, the hustle and bustle of city living.
