Nothing specific. Just a potential life goal.

I like Vancouver to a point. I wish I explored more of it, and I can, since I still live here. I have been thinking of finding a job that pays good money and when I get enough money I may leave to a smaller city in the interior. The city life and me might be over. I am thoroughly enjoying the slower life the pandemic brought and I call that a sign that the fast life and me might need a separation or maybe even a divorce. I wonder how slow the slow life is in a smaller city.

In the really small places, the gossip hotline knows everybody's business.

You wonder how slow the slow life is in a smaller city? It's tawdry, very tawdry. People are bored and social circles are tighter, so that leads to all a lot of people filling their days with gossip and backstabbing.

Proximity to Services

I chose a beautiful island community, and there are benefits to be sure. But the biggest problem to my mind is about proximity to extra or extended health care services. Every single time you need a treatment, however minor or short, it's a ten hour day away from home, packed up for a hotel "just in case" you can't get back due to weather or whatever. Socially, right, not much anonymity. False rumours spread like fire in a heat dome around here. Another place I was eyeballing before here had a similar problem -access only via mountain road, no public transportation went there, no major services close enough to get to easily.

Personally I totally regret the 10 years I lost having moved to Ktown from Vancouver. I cannot even write that podunk piece of shite towns name. Horrible horrible. Racist, small minded, jobs are crap, people are even MORE snobby than the city. I shudder at the memories. Please, just go camping for a break.
