Hands up if you've ever done household chores instead of playing a video game.
(I realise I'm talking to an imagined audience here, you don't actually have to raise your hands.)
When I was 19 years old I lived in New York for three months. The largest city I had ever visited previously was Glasgow, population: 500,000. Tiny in comparison.
For the first week I wandered New York City with my head pinned to the sky, the back of my skull glued to the base of my neck. Complete awe. This place. The scale of it. The possibilities. It’s a miracle I didn’t get robbed.
I’ll never forget my last day in the city.
