    Currently going back

    and forth from a small town to a college city, it has become rather hard to come back each time. Because no one seems to grow more as a person or atleast look at a different perspective. What bothers me the most are my friends that stay immature, read cartoon books, and keep...

    Center of the Universe? Ha! Not!

    I moved to a small town in western Maine when I was eight.  The redneck kids in this school came down upon me like a pack of vultures, and they never let up their relentless attacks until I switched to another school at age 14.  These children were...

    Northern California To Small Town Iowa Unconditionally Sharing

    Even as I typed that title I felt a twinge of fear of reproductions and judgment..... I moved from Northern California to a small town in Iowa 4 years ago and still feel like a circle in a square peg. The town already had my "Story" down pat by the time I arrived and has since...

    Two-Head Town

    I've lived in a town with a population of 1052 for my entire life. I hate it, and I hate the ignorant hicks living in it. Everyone only cares about what other people are doing. I hate the way they all nag for gossip under the pretence of actually caring about their community. And...

    Small Town In Texas

    There'S Nothing To Do Here!!!!

    I have lived in the small-town Seffner almost all my life. As little as I've had issues with the people here, THERE IS NOTHING TO DO HERE!!!!!! Unless of course you like hanging out at plumbing supply stores. My neighbors are almost never around (which can be a good thing), and...

    What More Can I Say?

    As with the other members, I also live in a small town and am finding it so difficult, even after 3 years. My husband wanted to move here and, although I eventually agreed to this, it's the worse decision I ever made, particularly as it became evident that he would only be here 3...

    Southern hospitality is a farce at best.

    Someone walks up and says, "Hey Bub!" and ten seconds later they're back in the corner downing beers with people they went to high school with. It's human nature to seek the quickest and surest path to connectedness....being surrounded by people and things that you know and that...

    3,000 people. 600 in school k-12. It's amazing when everyone knows everyone. Not really an advantage for me because I don't talk anyway. But it's amazing to observe the town.
