Anyone made a move from city to small town (as an adult) and how did it work for you? I grew up in small towns, and still consider myself to be "from the country" but I've actually been in the city for 9 years now, I'm hoping I can make the readjustment... I'm a bit su****ious about having to go out of town if I want to have a good time and avoid kids I teach (and their parents), but that's hardly a major concern.
Good for you! I'm moving soon too--from the 'burbs to the proper city.
It's funny, you'll be a big fish in a small pond and I'll be a small fish in a big pond. Depending on your perspective.
So obviously I don't have any advice but yay for biting the bullet. Hope you get a good job and all that.
