I've lived in Milwaukee for the past 4 years of my life. Every store a girl needs (wants) within close driving range (10 miles max). I've taken the bus with bums and been within blocks of violence. I am ever so used to cars, fire engines, police sirens, and yelling people outside my bedroom window. It puts me to sleep. Yet NOTHING beats seeing the stars on a clear night when you're in the country. Nothing beats the smell of a cow farm.
I am used to getting dressed up in dresses and 5" heels every weekend to go out and fit in with the other city girls. I drive like a Milwaukee resident. I know the roads to take during rush hour to avoid as much traffic as possible. I could tell you the top 5 restaurants of any style food I would recommend. I haven't used my GPS in months because I know how to get everywhere in Milwaukee, and I honestly rarely leave the city. Except this weekend.
Okay growing up in the country. Wearing torn up jeans to dinner on the weekend = totally acceptable. Following the speed limit is 10x easier because there's a less sense of rush. I drove a combine before I could drive a car.
I said this weekend that if I'm ever rich I want a house in the city and the country. But still don't know which I would like more. We'll just have to wait and see.
It's just extremely nice to get away from what you're used to and take a second to just think. Or not think.
This week is my 2nd semesters finals week. I have 2 exams and the biggest presentation of my undergrad career this week. (Woa that feels weird to say.) After this week I will have 9 classes left in college and will be graduating this November. My senioritis is as worse as ever I can't imagine what it will be like in the fall.
As always, keep me in your thoughts and prayers :) <3
