What do people in the country do?
For a living? Isn't it difficult to commute every day to a city? I would love some day to live in the country, but I just don't know what I would do for a living. What do you think?

most of the "country area" isn't as vast as people seem to think. in my house, the school where i went and my mom taught is a 10 min walk; 5 min car ride my mom and aunt is a teacher, uncle is a farmer, but you can be a dr, lawyer, etc. they are all within a 10 min car ride in the "country"
