life in north dakota
For those of you who don't know, I live in North Dakota. On top of that, I live in a town of about 1000 people. Half of our streets are gravel roads. I don't mean that once you leave city limits the roads are made of gravel. No. Inside the town there are gravel roads. Yeah, I'd say it's kind of like going back to the 18th century until a semi-truck goes by on the main highway. But I don't really mind it. I don't know why. I consider myself a city person. I'd much rather live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area or Denver or Phoenix or Boston, but those places are a bit out of my price range at this point. So for now, kudos to you, North Dakota. Thanks for being friendly and affordable.
I'm not the kind of person that would typically put a link to a silly video just anywhere, especially in my blog, but these are somewhat humorous:
