Country living at its best comes to me now unlike having to deal with the constant high noise level and traffic snarls that comes along with a big city lifestyle. I lived far too long in a major city for five long, arduous years right after college and I will never do that to myself again. It seems like I remained a nervous wreck, probably because I could never sleep very well with the constant hustle and bustle of a large city. Even the HVAC system inside my own condo made far too much noise, keeping me up all night. Unfortunately, I had to depend on my landlord to check the air conditioner regularly so it would stay in excellent working condition when needed. He would, though at times, appear to me that he was not the most dependable person always. Now I own my own house in a rural spot, which I like very much. I am very pleased to finally be in the country. I no longer have to overcome traffic snarls, my heating and cooling system works wonderfully and it’s an extremely quiet HVAC system, not to mention an extremely dependable unit. I’m sure I’ve experienced a significant improvement in my quality of life now since I moved out away from a major city, now that I am in my country home. I rarely even have to leave my home to go back into town except every few days for some groceries because I work from home. I love being able to be paid for a job I performed myself without having to leave my home and go to or be at an office by nine o’clock every morning. Perhaps the only downfall to impeding my new working and healthier lifestyle setup is the issue that I live in the midst of a big empty field. There are no trees anywhere nearby to shade my house, which means I have to run my air conditioner constantly. I oftentimes have a pretty high electric bill that I, like anyone, hate having to pay for, but still, I prefer this inconvenience over suffering through the nightly noise, having to live nearby to far too many people, along with the overall fast-paced life that comes to you while living in a large metropolitan area.
