    Default For Serious

    Did anyone grow up in a legit rural ass town were you are just surrounded by farmland. Living/working in said area and honest to God this is literally the first time I have ever felt culture shock. I've traveled fairly decently in college to various places and countries and this setting completely floors me. Any of you ever had like real real culture shock? I don't like this feeling. :/

    Your an absolutely wonderful man, any girl that is yours is lucky and I know that from personal experience. ~KMT

    when i lived in gilbertsville it KINDA felt different. it wasnt a rural area or anything but it was right on the edge and definitely had a very provincial feel. i didnt mind it though. other than that no.

    and your black ass always said you wanted to move out to the "country"

    Fun fact re: urban-rural culture shock. examination of red and blue states showed that "the "true" nature of the divide is between urban areas/inner suburbs and suburbs/rural areas".

    Makes sense. I feel like the whole world is going round and I'm stuck in one place.
