I do love a good YouTube video about Canberra, and today I found two from user Eloey Skitz. Who seems to be two girls, maybe one is Elory and one is Skitz? I don’t know. It’s not important.
Firstly the girls list the top 5 things they hate about Canberra:
There is the prerequisite “Canberra has nothing to do” comment (which to be fair is a much more legit problem when you’re under 18) and concerns about how nobody cool comes from Canberra. Honestly it makes me feel somewhat nostalgic for being a bored teen in an odd way. No celebrities, no One Direction concerts, it can be hard being a tween.
Also apparently Canberra is cold because there isn’t a beach here.
Perhaps feeling they were too hard on Canberra because they followed up with their 5 favourite things about Canberra:
I know, it took me a moment to get over the fact that I was listening to teenagers talk positively about something.
Sadly however, the list of ‘pros’ manages to make Canberra sound way worse than the list of ‘cons’ does.
We have landmarks? The weather here is alright sometimes? These are the best things you can say about living here?
Also, we have 3 big shopping centres? That’s not even correct! But again to be fair, I too often forget Tuggeranong exists.
