Stay in metropolis or small city

I feel so sorry for this delayed English article. I spent all day long in the office but actually did nothing except for watching Korean TV series My Girl for the second time. The technical support stuff is a woman three years older than me. We talked about our daily life after the lunch break. She said that she came to Beijing after graduation and had been here for three years. I ask her if she would go back home in the future, she said she didn't know, but, she said, “I know I can't stay here forever because the house is too expensive, but I don't want to change, it's quite comfortable for me to work here. I don't know what my life would be if I return home.” She is single and live alone. She asked me about my plan for my future. Honestly I want to stay here, if not here, somewhere developed and beautiful, like south or other countries. I have had this kind of intention when I was a little girl. I don't know why I don't care so much to be far away from home, maybe because I've never been too far, maybe I have two brothers so I need not to worry about my parents too much, maybe I haven't found myself yet, anyway, I just don't want to go back even though I am so worried about my future here. She also said that if want to go home you should go immediately after graduation, because staying here is a waste of time. Though I agree with her at that time but I don't think that way in fact. However, I must agree with the sentence that environment influences a lot on people but meanwhile I don't deny that a man can live the way he or she likes as long as the will is strong enough. So my point is no matter where we live, we should stick to our own life style and be careful of the people and the environment around you. We fight so hard but we may not to change the world, but at least we can not let the world change us.
