In recent years, reality TV show, The Only Way is Essex has gave the world a bad view on Essex. People of Essex are now stereotyped as being dumb, annoying, and to have only two words in their vocabulary. Shut and up. This is a great example to show how powerful the media, how it has control over what we think and do. Well I’d like to prove the world wrong. I’ve lived in Essex for more than three years ago now, and I can tell you that the people of this county can say a lot more than two words! Everyone knows how to tell the time, and everyone can say a lot more than two words.
The truth is that most of the people here are exceptionly friendly! Although you get the odd wannabe TOWIE people, all others are just ordinary people just like anyone else.
I have previously lived in Cumbria, but I still think I would stay here over choice. Yes, it’s lovely to be surrounded by countryside and silence, but it’s also to meet new people, or visit the many shops and restaurants in town, for example. In my town, a beautiful river runs through right next to a cycling path and tons of nature and trees. It’s a great walk for the weekends, or just as a walk home from school at the end of the day.
Thanks for reading, and don’t believe everything you hear!
