Intro # 1 :
Some people prefer to live in a small
town. Others prefer to live in a big city. Which is better? I guess it
all depends on who is being asked. There are pro's and con's to each,
and different kinds of people have different tastes as to where to live.
I've been lucky enough to experience both within recent years, I moved to Harmony, Maine population 954 from Phoenix, AZ about 3 years ago. Even
though I don't think I'm ready to make a decision on which I prefer, I
can say that it sure is a culture shock. Moves are notoriously hard
on anyone but when a huge uprising gets added to the mix, you just
don't know what the emotional response will be. I pretty much freaked out immediately after arriving in Harmony, I actually went to see a therapist to "talk" about how crazy I felt people lived here, needless to say she thought I was the crazy one.
Intro # 2:
shock. That's what you get when you take someone from a big city and
place them in a small rural town. There are so many differences between
living in a big city and living in a small rural area, even though there
might only be a couple hundred of miles between you and what you used
to know, you might as well be in a whole new country. I had a huge move about three years ago, I moved to Harmony, Maine with a population of 954 from Phoenix, AZ. I still haven't decided If I prefer it here, and If you're trying
to find out what's the better choice for you, it might be helpful to
weight the pro's and con's of each.There are advantages to both and
you'll get different answers if you ask around for preferences, it all
depends on who you ask.
