I'm sortof both. I live in a suburb of Houston; which, I'm sure you all know- is a very large city. We have about 12,000 people, I believe. Our house is the norm; in a community of 800 homes with basically no yard. About five minutes away from my house though, is a 40 acre horse farm. The whole place is very rustic looking, because it's on Army Corp of Engineer land ( no concrete, 'permanent' buildings, etc allowed) and over half of it is wooded. I ride hunky Quarter Horses and I can rope better than half of the guys, I rodeo and I can cut cattle (we have a whopping ten cows xD) and I've seen my share of bobcats, coyotes, and snakes. But I go back home and I'm right back in the town life xP it's perfect for me, and most of my friends regard me as the 'city cowgirl.' Most of them agree that I don't belong in a town; and I agree with them ^^ I hope to eventually be a REAL country girl. Hehe

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Hmm, I should have added an option that was half half, as I see that lot of people are not quite one or the other, but really in between.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

I live in the city. 12 minutes from downtown Seattle. But about 30 minutes from good rural land. I would like to live in the country, but jobs are here. And I think that long commutes are very stressful and in the future will become harder and harder to keep up as the price of gas goes up. My husband takes the bus into the city. He spends a total of an hour a day commuting. I would not want to spend more than that on a commute. So, I guess I am stuck in the city until retirement.

I live in the New York City suburbs- Central New Jersey. I'd love to live off in the country with horses on property, but I have to admit, a 45 minute train ride from the city is AWESOME.

I live in smaller town.

Nah, what's wrong with the country, Kaila? I love it here.

I think that if you life farther, it often means prioritizing what's important to you. Timetables, job choices, many things... I study 50kms away and didn't want to move in that city since I experienced cozier and safer to live in that small town. For cutting costs, I ride there with carpool. It often means waiting 8 hours per a day, despite of it if my day lasts 2 or 8 hours.

...but some people just experience that it's worth of that.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I've lived in city, suburbs and country.

I live in the country now and am staying PUT I love my privacy, having my horses here and the outdoors. It's only a 20 minute drive to work, so I'm set.
