The city is so invigorating and filled with energy, but after a bit of time I find it to be extremely draining, even in the summer. I reached one of these points recently where all I could think about was getting out of the city, just for a bit of time. While most Manhattanites escape to the Hamptons on summer weekends, I escaped home to the country.
A simple, slow-paced way of life filled with greenery and fresh air. My major reasoning for having to go home wasnt great, but it was great to spend a bit of time at home. It was definitely needed before school is in full force...only 2 weeks away!! :(
