Thoughts || Plymouth

I didn't think it was possible to love a place as much as I love Plymouth.
James was down here a year before I came to University here; whenever I came down then I loved it.

I felt like it was a magical place where even the rain never felt as miserable; or the clouds were ever as grey.
& now, three years after I first found Plymouth I still feel the same.

Its not a holiday feeling, but I can't explain it.
I don't even know what draws me to here, maybe its the infrastructure, the cut shops and cobbled streets, the sea and waves?

Whatever it is it still hasn't faded.
For the first time in a long time I feel like I belong.
I don't want to loose that.

It makes me wonder what's in store after I (hopefully) complete my PGCE year,
James wants to move in back home and save some money for a job, I just want to get a place down here and stay. I can see his point, but I just don't want to move back.

Ultimately it's my dream to move abroad, but I'm not finished with this little town yet.

Each time I travel back to Birmingham I get a stream of comments tellin me bow healthy I look,
How i'm blooming into adulthood, my Nan claims its the sea air.
Can a place change you that much?

James has begun calling Plymouth home now,
I love the fact his beginning to feel like we do have a life together now,
Separate from out families.
Of course they're still a big part of us; but we're starting our own journey together.

Have you ever felt this way about somewhere you live?
