Could you go a bit more into your hatred of cities? I've lived in/near them my whole life and now that I'm about to graduate I'm wondering if going somewhere quieter will help with my creativity/productivity/social anxiety.

Dog shit, crack heads, concrete, dumpster juice, street violence, people shouting at 3:00am, the overbearing presence of cars, expensive housing, light pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, and a 360-degree man-made horizon, formed predominantly from right-angles.
