An academic's opinions on feminism, politics, literature, philosophy, teaching, academia, and a lot more.

Sunday Fun

I was at a party today at the house of an elementary school teacher and a professor from my school. They have an enormous, beautiful ranch out in the country with incredible views. They are from the area which makes it easier, but still, it’s good to see that a guy who teaches small kids and a woman who works for a state college in a broke state can live so well.

I was invited to the party by people who are not in academia, by the way. Only the couple who invited me and my family weren’t Trump supporters there. Everybody else was. Not that anybody talked about politics. 

Now we are wondering why we didn’t buy a house out in the country. It’s impossibly beautiful there. And we saw cows, which made Klara very happy. I still can’t get over how fat cows are on this continent. Cows back in Ukraine looked very emaciated.

  1. I used to live in the country, and I did love it, but there are a few drawbacks.

    The commute time really adds up, and not just the daily commute, any time you need to run an errand or get groceries (it used to be a 4 hour round trip for me) and if something in the house breaks, having a person come to fix it costs quite a bit more (their longer drive to you is time when they aren’t working for someone else) if you live in a place with a lot of snow, you may need to learn to plow your own driveway, and depending on the road you live off of, you may need to pay for someone to plow that, also, where I am, internet service ends at the populated areas.

    I think I would like to retire to a place in the country, but the daily driving is long and expensive, and there are a lot of hassles.
