    Default 7 positive things about living in London

    We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.

    You forgot no. 8.
    You can sell your 1 bed above a kebab shop in Hackney and buy 3 houses in Germany.

    Sure the roaming countryside around these 3 houses smells a lot better too.

    Last time I was in the German countryside it smelt of manure.
    But you're probably used to that stench since it's similar to what emanates from your gob.

    Try brushing your teeth.

    There is only 1 good thing about London. Jobs.
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    Yup, earning 80k per year to spend 12k on train fares instead of that 68k job in Bristol. Makes perfect sense.

    You could choose to live in London. You'd only have to spend ~140 per month on a Zone 1-3 Travelcard and have an extra 10k to play with :-)
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.

    And then 600K for a terraced house.

    Seems a bargain for that 70K job.
