Living in a small town definitely has its perks. People who live in small towns often have a stronger sense of community than a city dweller does. Small town life is much slower-paced than a hustling and bustling city. And the overall cost of living is way, way lower.

On the other hand, for some people, those “benefits” are the exact reasons why they left their hometown. That “sense of community” can often feel stifling. That “slower pace of life,” can be another way of saying “nothing really happens here.” And sure, “living is cheaper,” but that’s mainly because your town isn’t exactly in demand.

Small town life works for some people and doesn’t work for others. Whether you’re a proud citizen of Nowheresville USA, or whether you fled that lifestyle behind as soon as you were able, you’ll find something to relate to in these 15 memes about small towns. (via Bored Panda)
