Living In The Country

What Country Living Is Like
Odyssey Online

When I first moved out to West Friendship Maryland, there was not much out here to do. It was mainly trees and grass, and a few people spread out. After close to 20 years of living here, I have enjoyed it and also hated it. Here are a few reasons why.

1. No Nosy Neighbors

When it comes to neighbors, living out in the country is good if you don`t like people and want to be away from others. I can go both ways, I like some people but I would rather not have neighbors close to me.

2. Landscape

The landscape is very nice out in the country, but it does have lots of work to do daily. From mowing grass, to maintain the gardens, we have our hands full. Still, it is nice and pretty to look at, as you look out the window. You also can get grade photography practice out here, as there is so much of nature and rolling hills.

3. Peace and Calmness

Living out in the country part of Maryland, is nice because of the peace and quiet out here. You are away from the big city noise and lights. So in the end, living out in the country has it good times and bad but overall it has been a good experience and taught me life lessons.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
