Abstract

A person's identity is created by his surroundings. Every different daily encounter will shape the way he views and is viewed by the world. Living in certain regions will provide various directions in which to follow and different insight towards situations. Living in different environmental conditions produces mixed results as to a person's character. A production of one's environment is exemplary of living in both an urban environment, and a rural one. Urban life is often described as one that is suited to a fast-paced environment that caters to availability and access of products and services alike. "Urbanity would be so constituted by something that comes from the city, from the street, from the building, and is appropriated to some extent by people" (Vieira de Aguiar, 2013, p. 2). Which can otherwise be referred to as a product of the socio-economic human environment. Catering to the needs of the product and servicing industry, Urbanity gains the ability to provide a more accessible community that offers an array of work and leisurely activities. This way of life defines an extension of a modern-day people-oriented lifestyle that promotes economics as a social mechanism. The distinction between urbanity and rurality lies in the orientation of modern living and the environment that encompasses it.
