Lately I’ve been having discussions back and forth with Josh. We have a lot in common and our sense of living is definitely on the same level — we’re torn!
I love living in more of a city-like atmosphere because everything is a quick walk away, there so much to do, it’s nearly impossible to be bored, you always have places to take visitors, there are many people to meet and stories to tell. It’s just…exciting!
On the other hand, a country life appeals to me as well. It forces you to use what you have naturally, enjoy nature as it was intended, and lacks the stress of city life.
I think right now I’m very young. I grew up in a country scape away from the suburban parts of town… There was never anything to do, it took a 15 minute drive to reach town, and I got bored quickly. I love the quiet escape and the runs I used to have. Where else would deer come out at 8pm to run beside you before they disappear? It’s lovely, but also lonely and dull. I prefer a city life for now, but when we get older I’d say we’d go buy a cabin somewhere in the middle of nowhere and enjoy ourselves just as we are.
What do you prefer, city or country living?
