And you stop to ponder, “That is the luscious water I am deliciously drinking.” Oh and the wonderful weather! How can anyone forget our four seasons? In the winter, you dress up like you’re in the North Pole, And in the summer, you try to peel off your skin, And for everything in between, You’ll have to figure out on your own. The people around the picturesque scenery, Gives you pushes and shoves, And it makes you feel recognized. And the very people that acknowledges you, Is probably your landlord that decides on your rent.

Sleeping in this city is just magnificent tranquility. You are all cozy in bed while the pipes are leaking. The banging on the next door rhythmically lulls you to sleep. The shouting and shootings right outside your window, Assures that your expensive little apartment is well worth it. The night is where all the fun is at! You can go walking in the empty streets And you rarely see who is across, Because the dim lights show no faces, And you never know how mad a man can be, When he is masked up with weaponry. As you walk down the streets in the daylight, You can see just how rich you really are. The flashy cars and the designer-brand clothing that they wear, And the high-end luxury apartments that they lounge in, Make you feel rich in your jeans and converse shoes. But these are just the good things you find in the city. The modern people that becomes so civilized, We enjoy our noises. We enjoy our cleanliness. We enjoy our rent. We enjoy “Nu Yawk” City. The complaints of New York City and Roman Cities are both very similar to a certain degree. They both have the complaints of the repulsive people on the streets and of noises around the city. However, changes due to technological advancements such as sirens and construction methods have contributed to different degrees and varieties of complaints. Regardless, complaints within city walls will always exists, in either modern or pre-modern times.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
