I really shouldn't come back to Mackay. It's like a drug. It reminds me of how much I miss everything, or rather everyone there.

Taking Damian home tonight after we went to the movies, I took the longest route I could think of, just to prolong the experience a little. I wish I could stay in Mackay. I miss it, and my friends there terribly.

Unlike the hordes of people who label Mackay a "hole" and are always wanting to get away from Mackay, I don't. I might have said that once, at the start of uni, but it didn't last long. I like Mackay. Its not quite a country town, and still a major city centre. The fact that it is so spread out is also very appealing. It was a difficult decision for me to move away.

Don't get me wrong, I still want to live in Brisbane (or some other capital city) for a while. But Mackay is my home.

I'm a bit the opposite to you. I do sometimes, well ok, often miss seeing the people who are my good friends who are in Mackay. But for me returning there is a very visiable reminder how far I've come since I left.

I look at the people I went to school with who are engaged or who are still the same people they were when we left school 3 years ago and I'm glad I left. I don't mean any offence to anyone there, but after being here and having had all the experiences I've had down here. Its impossible for me to go back for any really lengthy period of time and not feel repressed, pushed back into the mould that I'd be in should I still be there.

But that's just one person's view on that.
