I moved to a rural area at the beginning of summer (so I know no one) and haven't been able to get a job either.
I'm not too bothered by it really though, I've been catching up on my reading, walking the dogs, bike riding, taking photos, swimming and sewing my jeans as skinny as I can get them. And of course spending an inordinate amount of time on the internet but what can you do?
My social life sucks.
I have super strict parents who suck even more.
There are advantages to being in the country. It's generally not full of faceless turncoats. It's healthier. You can run and cycle easily. You can grow stuff.
On the other hand, there isn't much to do and it takes half an hour to walk to the nearest station.
there should be a lonely ruralites society
I have had a generally boring August, the only month I spend at home. I prefer working 14 hour shifts at uni during the summer than being at home where there is nothing to do, the night life is crap and a lot of friends have moved away now!
