My hometown of Dansville compared to Batavia is so much different. Where I come from there are more things to do and way less traffic. In Dansville there are about four traffic lights and in Batavia there are more than ten. Also the police know you by name and are nicer compared to Batavia.
On the typical weekends I’m usually out sitting around a fire talking with some friends and laughing. In Batavia the only thing you can do is sit in your apartment because there are no woods around here, it is mostly swamps. I’m used to the mentality of being country and I like that. There’s nothing better than to know how to survive off the land and get a little dirt on your tires. Can’t do that in Batavia!
When in high school, I never really thought I would want to go back to Dansville, but I miss it greatly. I’m really looking forward to this summer and getting ready to go home but most importantly spending time with my family and friends that I never get to see that often. When I graduate from college I want to move to Colorado and live in a country town just like Dansville.
