I live in the middle. In the middle of the city. In the middle of the state. Not in the middle of the country (thankfully). Being in the middle means you're fairly close to everything. This is most apparent when it comes to the city. If I drive ten minutes north I'm downtown and if I drive ten minutes south I'm in the country. Well, kind of. Developments are popping up all over and pretty soon it'll just be another suburb. It's a pretty depressing sight.
