Violet: Do I like where I’m from?
I have a love hate relationship with where I come from. On the negative side everyone knows everyone, so there are no room for secrets. Also, there isn’t anything to do. Literally nothing. We have a Walmart…but that’s about it. On another negative note, my town is full of judgmental old country folk, so trying to express or have a different opinion than almost everyone in the town is a hard thing to do. Although it may seem so, I promise I don’t hate my town. I love where i’m from. I love that I’m surrounded by woods, and that when I come home in the fall I can smell firewood burning in the air. I can see the stars in the sky without squinting like I have to do in the city. I love that there are only four “good” places to eat in the town, and that everyone knows which ones they are. I love that when I go to the bank, or to the Sonic they know who I am. They know my name and remember me. I loved being raised in a small town, and I wouldn’t change it if i could. I never thought that once I left, that I would want to go back to visit, but I was wrong. It will always be my home.
It’s so hard leaving home.
