Moving to a New Town
I just moved from Chicago to a very, VERY little town in Alabama for a job, which is apples and oranges. I had a really hard time moving here and have been very closed minded about living in “hick town.” My town has one of this old-timey gas stations and a population of 200, THAT’S IT. I’m not used to having to drive 45 minutes to Starbucks, or a clothing store, or any form of civilization. To top it all off, I’m homesick and I miss my Chi-Town based family. Plus, everything here smells like manure. While not trying to, I feel superior to all the people here, which is super pretentious of me, but I can’t help it. What should I do?
