@hamilton,
Well, what about Southampton? You can say you live in Highfield,

Which is quite nice. Or Millbrook,

@hamilton,
We don't have basements, he have cellars. I don't think a lot of houses in Southampton have cellars. You could live in a ground floor maisonette, if you like that basement feel.

Hamilton, I don't think Mame is trying to get too much info out of you. Vancouver is a huge city, as discussed before, it made up of many, many cities. Depending on where you are living, not precisely!!!! Mame, who no longer lives in Vancouver, but did for many years, could probably give you some good advice of where to go, what to see and how to get there. In the nicest possible way, of course.
For example, if you live downtown, you might want to steer clear of East Hastings, or at least the old Carnegie Library and area. Or don't go off route while hiking through Stanley Park or Grouse Mountain, but you must absolutely bike the Sea Wall in Stanley Park.
However, if you live in Port Moody. There is a great train, that will take you lickety split, into Van 5 times in the morning, and out 5 times at night... but you'll probably have to stand the entire trip.
I think I can speak for Mame and most of us here, we just want you to have a great time in a great city. But I do understand the trepidation. That being said. I'm glad you like your new digs.
Vancouver can be a dismal city when it rains, but when the sun shines, it's a jewel. Two years ago, I took the ferry to the island, and there were several killer whales swimming in Horseshoe Bay. It was a rare occurrence. They were hunting dolphins, who were also swimming about. It was thrilling, magical. Vancouver is full of those kind of things. Blue mountains, ocean and sky, framed in vibrant green and redwood, totem poles, and more concrete architecture than almost any city on earth and yet, it's stunning not drab.
It's also busy, big and beyond comprehension sometimes.

@Ceili,
absolutely, thanks ceili.

hamilton, you can always pm me and i can help you get around the city. I've lived all over the Lower Mainland, from Maple Ridge to West Vancouver, Coquitlam to North Van, Granville Street to Cambie... I spent my whole life there. But it's up to you.

@Mame,
thanks mame. whenever i have questions about the city, I will.
I'm not scared to share what part of the city I'm in, it's just I'm scared my mom will find out that I did, (if i did) and probably make me leave this site. she was upset that i mentioned THE CITY that i'm in, and the name of the one i've left. i appreciate that you guys are mostly trustworthy, and that there has NOT been any known kidnappings or what ever through this site, but if i start to give what my PARENTS think is too much, then I probably wont be back until i have my own house and car, which wont be for a few years.

@hamilton,
I think you're doing the right thing, listen to your parents. I'm afraid the cat's out the bag, we already know you live in the biggest bloody house in Vancouver.

@hamilton,
I do most nights, but then I realise I've spent the last half hour dreaming about looking for a toilet.

@Ceili,
A wonderful summation of the city's charms.
Even though I'm glad to be living in S Florida I still enjoy my visits to Van every year.

@GracieGirl,
thanks, Gracie. It means so much to have you guy's supporting me.
Well, it's been about three weeks, I think, so here's how it's been going.
Everyone is very nice. not as nice as Gracie, but still, very kind and understanding.
The air is cleaner, and that's something I notice every time I step out side of my basement I've been living in. It's nice taking walks along the sea wall, and my mom, who runs along it every now and then, see's otters playing often.
I've been seeing lots of very nice houses, cars, people, and the place is just overall nice. It's been a little cloudy, but that's expected. I miss home, of course, but still, I've made some new friends, and just texted someone from my old swim team about two hours ago, about a song i got stuck in her and every one elses head.
