Polka Dots and Pine Trees
I really love living here though. Today I walked all the way home from campus (which is a long way considering I live about 20 minutes off-campus as the car drives), and there was something so gratifying to walk all through town seeing buildings, houses, people, building, houses, people, and then get to the very eastern edge of town, turn a corner, and BAM. Beautiful sky and grass and cornfields as far as the eye can see. So few buildings and houses and people and just so much nature. Feeling the wind blow softly across the fields, hearing the distant birds calling to each other, and watching puffy clouds float lazily through the sky means so much more to me than an iphone does to other people. Being a city girl has its perks, but I wouldn't give up anything for the country girl in me.
