I met Mike at the market a rainy, and cold day. When I talk to Mike he’s sitting on a table close to his shop. This is his story.
“I’m born in Leeds and lives in Bramley right now. I like it. The best thing about Leeds is the atmosphere. It’s easy to find people to talk to and everybody is nice. Leeds is a good place to live in but I would not say that it is anything special with it. Just a nice city. Right now I’m selling DVD’s here at the market. I’ve worked at other shops before I started here.”
After a while we start to talk about what he does when he’s not at work, and a smile shows up on he’s face.
“I just go home after work. I don’t go out actually. I like my life as it is.”
“I’m born in Leeds year 1966. I’ve lived here in Leeds my whole life. Right now I’m living in Bramley. I really love this place. It’s a good city to live in.
I’m working at the market, I’m selling CD’s and other stuff. I’ve done that for a really long time. The best thing about the job is that I get the opportunity to talk to people. I like to go around the market and look at the other shops. It’s a good way to socialize with my costumers and other workers.
I like to listen to music, specially music from 50’s, 60’s, and the 80’s. I’m no fan of music from the 70’s. So when I’m not working I listen to music and maybe go to some place that play good songs.”
