I love where I live because it is secluded and in nature. I have always found peace in nature, and i like being able to walk outside without fear that I am not ready for the day or anything because neighbors might see me. There's enough land here to run and do whatever you can think of, and the openness has always been inviting to me. The downside is that it is 30 minutes away from any town or city that is decent and not slowly crumbling, so traveling and gas money are always a big ordeal. It's also hard to have friends living so far away from everything.

The general atmosphere is brilliant, beautiful, and breathtaking. I have lived all over the U.S. but nothing compares to the tranquility of this place. The problems i foresee are the unemployment rate in this town, but that is contributed to it being in the deep country. You have to travel a few miles to find jobs or buy food. It's basically a one horse town, but beautiful.
Police are rarely in my neighborhood, but they'll be here if I need them.
