So recently, a fellow fanpopper Snerkie diposting a soapbox artikel entitled “Sydney = Overrated”. If anda haven’t read that article, anda may have to in order to get what I’m saying. To start, My name is Ali, I’m 17 and I live in Sydney.

Second, I want to pick a little bone with Snerkie.
anda say Sydney is Un-Australian. Um... isn't that is what is so great about Australia? That that we are so MULTICULTURAL. Now anda say anda are not racist, but seriously, everyone has a right to live in Australia (given they're not terrorists, murderers atau dangerous) and that fact that anda put Un-Australian in bold worries me.

No Sydney is not great. When I was 12 my family moved from Melbourne to Sydney. I remember being so overwhelmed oleh the enormity of it all, I kept comparing it to Melbourne. Melbourne had trams and was easier to get around, Sydney didn’t. Melbourne had all my friends, Sydney didn’t. Melbourne was Melbourne and Sydney wasn’t. But then as I realized I was going to be in Sydney for awhile, so I sucked it up. I discovered buses and I got new and in some cases better friends.
I’m not blind atau stupid. A lot of people smoke, there isn't a great rubbish regime and the homeless people are scary. But let’s just go over the highlights of Sydney. Snerkie liked the harbour, and she’s right, it’s beautiful and the locals enjoy it too, not just tourists. But what about the weather? It’s almost always sunny and the beaches are as close as 30 menit away. Sydney is also very green, being so moist. There are a vast species of trees, mostly native. The national parks are close and easy to get to, most people have them on their back yards. Yeah I know, api hazard, but hey that’s Australia for you.

oleh now your thinking get off your soapbox(hahaha) Shizzali, you’ve only been to Melbourne and Sydney. You’ve never been to Adelaide, so quite being so defensive. Well that’s true. I’ve only every been to Rural NSW and Victoria, and I’ve loved it, but I never thought I took it for granted. I’ve also been holidaying in eropa and Canada, so I’m not ignorant.

To finish I have a few lebih points, so beruang with me. Snerkie says that on TV “they say how beautiful Sydney is and it's like the jantung of Australia”. Well there’s her problem, Since when do anda believe EVERYTHING anda see on TV (WWE isn’t as sincere as she thinks, obviously). I credit Snerkie for taking that trip to explore lebih of Australia, my friend and I are doing a road trip around Australia when we finish school selanjutnya year.

So that’s it from Shizzali, anda may have gathered I like my feelings known. As a final point, I’m not saying that Sydney isn’t overrated, to some people. Everyone has a right to their opinion and to publikasi that opinion, and I’m exercising that right. I hope anda enjoyed it, I certainly enjoyed menulis it!
