1. Have you ever lived in the countryside?
No, I’ve never lived in the countryside. My family,s always lived in urban areas, so I grew up in the suburbs. But growing up, I had friends who lived in the countryside. When I visited them, I loved how quiet and open it was146 there. There weren’t any buildings or traffic jams to make noise. It was awesome.
2. What would you do if you went to the countryside?
If I went to the countryside, I imagine I would spend some time walking around and seeing all the sights. It would be nice to surround myself with nature147 148. I would also try to spend some time away from my phone. I think the countryside helps put your mind at ease, and sometimes technology just does the opposite148.
3. Do you plan to live in the countryside?
No, I don’t have any plans to live in the countryside. I think it’s beautiful and I would love to visit, but I can’t see myself living there. I think Id be bored to death149. There aren’t too many ways to stay entertained there. But it would be nice to live close enough that I can visit whenever I want.
