NORTH LONDON.

#Stories

Living in London is for the most part pretty boring but super intense at the same time. From looking at this editorial you wouldn't necessarily say that it screams London but I think this is the side that no one really gets to see.

 

I think this is the way it is for most cities, no one gets to see the outskirts of the city and where most 'Londoners' actually live. I love living on the outskirts because you get the best of both worlds. You can live you country girl live in the day and go out and enjoy the busy and noisy city at night and even smell the sweet aroma of fresh puke on the night tube at 4 in the morning. 

London is notoriously known for rain and really shitty weather but this summer, oh heck, it has been... well, summer. When there's a blue sky and the occasional light leak in your picture you feel like you're in a home away from home and believe me when it's hot in England, us brits just live in the moment, wear as little clothing as we can and parade our horrific sunburn, or a tan as we like to call it, around like a badge.  

The major consensus about cities, specifically London, is that there is a lot of different classes all meshed into one city and the divide between the rich and the poor is becoming increasingly bigger. This is the thing I hate the most about London, or the world for that matter, the division of classes and assuming a stereotype for each class. The divide in London doesn’t just happen gradually, in some places you can actually just cross the street and notice the separation and atmosphere instantly.

Despite this major issue, which is something that is happening all over the world, where the élite and the rich are becoming even more important and the underprivileged are being forced out of society, London is a thriving city where all cultures alike come together and actually help each other understand what it is to be a good human being, not perfect, but one who is willing to accept everyone.
