I have nine months left in my last year of school. I’m counting down the days before I can pack up my stuff and leave the Midwest for a long time. I cannot wait to see, not just the rest of the country, but to see the rest of the world. I think everyone, in a way, resents the region, state, or the area that they’re from. It’s not weird to want to leave but what I’ve recently come to realize, after spending this past year abroad, you have to learn to appreciate your home and being somewhere you may not love because one day you’ll be 4,000 plus miles from home with no easy way back. I’ve learned to cherish the little beauties.
Indiana may not have anything and everything to do but you’ve got to appreciate the slow paced, chill life that is summer in the Midwest.
