I have been raised part in the city and part in the country. After living 10 adult years in the city I could not stand the stress anymore and decided
to live the country way, think middle of the wood.
I have spent couple years in my new hometown (village really) and know a couple people really well now. They raise their own chickens, pork, beef,
etc... But the geek in me always want to speak out and talk about various topics so advanced noone around me can relate. Topics like the evolution of
engineering, world politics and god forbid the unexplained.
As much as I like my newfound lifestyle, this kind of situation can be difficult at times and the loneliness associated with it can be somewhat of a
burden. However, the very many positives aspects of this life conterweight the stress of the city by orders of magnitudes. This post is mostly geared
towards improving on what I have now, I would hate to see a bunch of replies telling me city is much better... City is great, but not for me.
I was wondering if any ATSers was living similar situations; and if so, how do you cope with it?
