2016-09-20 21:53   The big change in the small town

Y (Kuma's owner)

In 2013, my husband and I moved to the house where we live in now. At that time, this town was just a small country town that had a population of about 5,500. We loved small towns, so this town was the perfect place to live. We sometimes saw kangaroos in the mornings. I liked seeing them hopping in the yard.

However, there was a plan to develop this town. I didn't know about it and I was surprised. One day, some workers started tree felling and leveling the huge area near the centre of the town. It was a place that had many cattle. The scenery changed dramatically.

I heard there was a plan to build a new school, a small shopping area and a residential area. One the opposite side of the town, they are developing another area for industrial purposes. The town seems to be getting bigger.

Honestly, I feel in a complicated state of mind. Since the construction has started, I rarely see any kangaroos. I'm disappointed, I really am. However, it's not all bad. The new shopping area will be the closest one to my house. It must be convenient. I want nature and I want a convenient life. Yes, I know I am greedy. These two things are incompatible. I'm wondering if there are any good ideas.
