I actually like Seattle.
It’s the most beautiful city I’ve ever been to. We have beaches, forests, the city, and the mountains—how many other places can say that?
I enjoy living in a transplant city. I love making small talk with the new folks in town and getting a fresh perspective on the city through their eyes. 
Pike Place is not overrated. For a “tourist attraction,” it’s pretty awesome. Despite living here my whole life, between the hundreds of shops and booths and the variety of cultures at the market, I always find something I’ve never seen before.
Seattle has its faults. The winters can be depressing, and almost all of my money goes to rent—but somehow there’s nowhere else I would rather live.
